The best book ever! A million stars! Nov 24, 2006
I'm only thirteen...and I'm already reading this series for the third time! It's a book that never gets old! You'll read it over and over again and never get tired of it! If you could give it a million stars...I would! The way the book is written...is magical! You want to read it slowly to get every word, yet at the same time yourself reading it as fast as you can! It's got mystery and danger...but unlike most...it's so real! The best thing is that the characters always turn to God when they need help instead of panicking or thinking they can do it on their own! As soon as I was done reading the first book...I picked up #2! The first one was a million stars....but they get even better! (If that's possible!) I'm not gonna tell you what happens...cause you need to find out what happens for yourself in this one too! You'll find yourself totally rapped up and lost in the book without even realizing that hours have gone by... again! This is defiantly a must read! For everyone!
The Mystery of the Silver Coins Nov 2, 2006
This is a GREAT book. I really enjoyed reading it. There is alot of adventure and cliffhangers. It's a great historical fiction with alot of information on how the Vikings really lived.
Exciting second book in the Viking Quest series. Jun 12, 2006
The day thirteen-year-old Bree O'Toole and was captured by Viking raiders, her life changed forever. Now she is far from her home in the green hills of Ireland, in a strange new country where all she has to look forward to is a life of slavery. Determined to escape that fate, Bree and one of the other captives, a younger girl named Lil, escape the Viking ship and head into the hills of Norway, hoping to make their way to a trading village where they can find safe passage back to Ireland. But the hardships she faces on her escape cause Bree to struggle to hold on to her courage and to her faith that God will protect her. And as her captor, the young Viking leader Mikkel, searches for her, he faces a personal struggle of his own: did he do the right thing by leading that raid? Meanwhile, Bree's older brother, Devin, who was set free before the Vikings left Ireland, is determined to find a way to go after his sister, but he struggles with his feelings of anger and hate toward the Vikings who tore apart his family.
This was an excellent continuation of the first book in the Viking Quest series, Raiders from the Sea. The historical details are wonderful, and I loved the unique setting. I'd highly recommend this book to all readers who read the first book, but new readers should start at the beginning of the series, otherwise this book won't make as much sense. I look forward to reading the other three books in this series and seeing what happens to Bree, Devin, and Mikkel next.

Fantastic! Dec 31, 2004
Mystery of the Silver Coins is just as fantastic as Raiders from the Sea! The book begins when Bree and another slave named Lil escape from the Viking ship and begin a trek through the unfamiliar Norwegian mountains. When Mikkel, the young leader of the Viking raiders, realizes that his bag of silver coins is missing, as are Bree and Lil, he and his crew men begin to search relentlessly for the girls, convinced that they are the thieves. But as Bree and Lil draw farther away, Mikkel begins to wonder if some of the choices he has made were for the best. He also begins to wonder if Bree's God is really real and if the gods of the Vikings are not. Bree learns that sometimes God has a different plan for your life than you think He does. She also gets a special message that makes her wonder if getting taken by the Vikings was really a mistake, or if there was a special reason. Mystery of the Silver Coins will take you on an exciting adventure. A definite must-read for you and your family!
