    excellent new historical series

    Thirteen-year-old Bree O'Toole and her fourteen-year-old brother, Devin, live with their parents and younger siblings on a farm in Ireland in the late tenth century. Bree loves her beautiful home, and is grateful that even though she is a girl, she was given the opportunity to be educated at the monastery. But at the same time, she often longs to see faraway places. She gets her wish, but in a terrible way. One day, she rescues a young man from drowning, not realizing he is a Viking and by saving him she has put her family and village in danger. The Vikings capture Bree and Devin during their raid. Devin is later set free by the young Viking leader, Mikkel - the same young man Bree rescued from drowning. But as the Viking ship sails north across the sea, Bree has nothing to look forward to but a life of slavery, and she struggles to hold on to her courage. Young readers who enjoyed other books by Lois Walfrid Johnson, or who have an interest in historical fiction about the Vikings or the Early Middle Ages, are sure to enjoy this book. It's an exciting historical adventure, and I liked that it covers a time period that I love, but don't see too much of in historical fiction. I look forward to reading the other books in this series to find out what happens next.

    Not Your Typical Viking Series

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these books!!! Lois Johnson did a wonderful job weaving history into the very pages of her story. However, this is not your typical Viking book, Lois Johnson goes back to the historical records to discover WHO the Vikings REALLY were. To most people what she found will come as a surprise. A lot of the things we have been taught about vikings simply aren't true. For example did you know that vikings would often play Chess when out at sea? It's true.

    Lois Johnson is not the best writer in the world but her stories make up for it. I am on the older side yet I still found these story engaging despite it's simplistic writing style. I even have friends older than myself (15) who loved these books. So don't say you're to old!

    The best part of all is that when you finish Raiders From the Sea there's four more books so enjoy!!!

    Couldn't put it down!

    This book is really good. I honestly couldn't put it down! The characters are engaging, and it is really encouraging to find good Christian books out there - without mixed values. Nothing objectionable, and no language. These are some of my favorites, and I am hoping to add them to my extensive collection of books soon!

    Raiders From the Sea

    This is a wonderful story. The title is very well thought of. Vikings do come from the sea! The story focuses on a young Irish girl named Bree. She is captured by vikings in one terrible day. But I wont tell all because that would spoil it. It is a great book perfect for all ages. If you like excitement and suspense this is the perfect story for you. Even if you don't like these things you'll probably love this book. Find out if Bree and her brother will have the courage to win.
