PRAISE FOR RANSACKER

“[Sissel] makes for a wonderfully flawed and complex heroine. A terrific follow-up to Berserker, full of adventure, magic, and deep family loyalty.” —Booklist

“A thoroughly engrossing tale of a young girl coming into her powers. Despite devastating betrayals, a villainous hunter, and a bum leg, Sissel perseveres. I am a fan!” —Brodi Ashton, NYT bestselling author of the Everneath series, Diplomatic Immunity, and the My Lady Jane series

“Compulsively readable, Ransacker is a tour-de-force, part epic family saga and part thrilling adventure novel. In a tale with Viking curses and Pinkerton spies, most captivating of all is the depth and complexity of the relationships and Sissel’s journey of self-discovery. Relentless, vivid, and deftly imagined.” —Axie Oh, Author of Rebel Seoul

“Amidst a strikingly original premise, Sissel’s journey from feeling like a burden to embracing her strong but dangerous legacy, compromised as it is with credibly naïve mistakes, is set against a richly imagined historical setting and augmented by some surprising but satisfying character twists. There is certainly girl power here, but also family-and-friends power and plenty of action adventure, making for an absorbing read that will appeal to a broad range of tastes. Recommended.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING

“A great follow up to the first book. The action is there and I found myself comparing it to the hit Outlander at the end. This idea of romance, set in a whirlwind adventurous/rugged setting, with magic, seems to fit that bill. Highly recommend.” —Amy, Goodreads Reviewer

“A very unique YA series… If you enjoyed Beserker, definitely pick this up.” —Theresa, Goodreads Reviewer

“As soon as I saw that Berserker was being promoted as Norse mythology meets western novel, I knew I had to read it. To my delight, it turned out exactly as promised and Emmy Laybourne did a fantastic job of weaving those two disparate genres together. Berserker was a surprisingly touching story that was full of adventure, family, and magic.” — Tara, Spinatale Reviews

“This singularly unique reading experience combines super-cool settings, real history and jaw-dropping action sequences in a way that that is as rare as a pearl in an oyster and just as perfect. I have really enjoyed the author’s other books, but this is some next-level stuff. Darn you, Emmy Laybourne! You have spoiled the rest of my summer reading stack! — Jen Hubert, Reading Rants

“What a great, gripping, thrilling read!!! Emmy Laybourne really knows how to pull the reader in with the Norse/Viking mythology. I could not put this book down…” — B. J. Neary, Amazon Reviewer

“A thriller for fantasy and history nerds. This is a fun and exciting adventure that is a masterful mix of magical fantasy, western adventure, and historical romance that is a thrilling read. The sibling relationships are especially realistic and well developed.”  — Kim, Amazon Reviewer

“Berserker is a fast-paced story with plenty of originality… With a distinctive vibe, magic, action, and cowboys to boot, Berserker covers rarely charted territories with fierce precision. We can’t wait to see where the series goes from here!” — Kait, Goodreads Reviewer

“I highly enjoyed the whole book. I think other readers who enjoy action, adventure, and mythology will fall in love with this story as I have. I am already dying to get my hands on book two, Ransacker!” — Taylor M., Goodreads Reviewer
