Reviews - What do customers think about Raiders Promise (Viking Quest V5)?
The best book ever! A million stars! Nov 24, 2006
I'm thirteen, and I just got these less than a year ago...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, second, third and fourth book...I picked up #5! The first one was a million stars, the second one was even better, the third was even better than that, and it just keeps going up and up! The bigger the number...the better they are! (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 that have gone by again! Although I was really sad to find out that this one was the last one in the series...I knew I could read them again! And that's what I've done! Starting all the way at the beginning to the happy ending! Only unlike fairytale endings...this happy ending is so real! This is defiantly a must read! For everyone! No excuses!Even people who don't like to read will lose themselves in these books! (And believe it or not: So far...every single review for every single book has five stars!)
Raiders Promise Nov 2, 2006
I've read all the Viking Quest books. It is just about my favorite series of books. This was the last book in the series and I disliked my Viking adventure coming to an end. But your Viking adventure could just be begining. After you read the first book, Raiders from the sea, you will probably just want to go on to the next and the next until you get to the last book. I highly recommend this series.
Morality Review Jun 12, 2006
I thought that this was an excellent, Christian book written in a biblical worldview by a very wise woman.
Sensuality: All the sensuality in this book is more romance than anything, and is very God honoring and appropriate for 7 year olds to 107 year olds.
There are very tense parts in this book, but no gory battlefields or anything of the like.
I don't believe that it mentions anything, but if it does, it talks only about a sip of wine.
Crude or Profane Language:
The basic plot has be written about by several others, but I will give my opinion: I highly recommend this book to anyone, at any age!
The Raiders Promise Apr 17, 2006
This book is the last in the Viking Quest seris. I highly reccomend this book. It is a compelling page turner. Any one any age will enjoy it a benift from it (just read what people have said at the beginning of the book). This is one of the best books I have every read.In fact, it is the best seris I have ever read!
Above and beyond 5 stars! Mar 2, 2006
The Raider's Promise is definitely worth 100 stars if not more! It is the fifth and last installment in the Viking Quest series, and by far the best! Best of all it was the longest!
The book starts out with Mikkel, Bree, and Devin exploring the new world with Leif Ericson. It has been nearly five years since the Viking raid Mikkel led that had taken Bree away from her home in Ireland. Mikkel has promised to bring both Bree and her brother Devin back home. But after all these years will he keep that promise?
This book shows that even though it's hard, you need to do the right thing. It also shows that even though your life might take a different path than you think it should, God knows what is best for you. It's filled with faith, friendship, family, romance, interesting historical accuracy, and amazing detail.
There are no words to explain and express how great The Raider's Promise is to read. You should just read it yourself! Enjoy! :)
