Overview

Everyone knows the most coveted treasure of the Viking Age was blueberry muffins. Blueberry muffins so succulent that if you sniffed just a whiff, you’d want a whole bite.

He’s a Viking through and through, and he’s thirteen winters old, larger than most respectable rocks, and most of all, a Buttersmith. That’s what he ...

Overview

Everyone knows the most coveted treasure of the Viking Age was blueberry muffins. Blueberry muffins so succulent that if you sniffed just a whiff, you’d want a whole bite. If you bit a bite, you’d want a batch; if you snatched a batch, you’d stop at nothing short of going to war just to claim them all. Your Tornjorn Trofastsonn comes from the clan that makes them. He’s a Viking through and through, and he’s thirteen winters old, larger than most respectable rocks, and most of all, a Buttersmith. That’s what he thinks anyway, until a charismatic merchant makes Torbjorn question his place among muffin-makers. When Torbjorn lets the secret of his clan’s muffin recipe slip, he calls doom and destruction down upon his peaceful village and forces his broth Storjfell and his clansmen to do the one thing they are ill-prepared to do: battle for their lives.

    What a FUN tale!

    In the first book of the series, Evertaster, you learned about Torbjorn and Storfjell and their very tasty butter.

    Now you can learn how the butter came to be...
    It is all about BATTLES. BLUEBERRIES.  and BOVINES!

    Young Torbjorn is sent to trade the delicious blueberry muffins for treasures that the clan is in need of.
    But when he slips and tells a merchant the secret of the tasty butter a terrible fate comes to the clan.
    Now Torbjorn and Storfjell must save the day and the bovines.

    A FUN FUN adventure awaits the reader!

    This book can be read as a stand alone book...but the ending does make more sense if you have read Evertaster first.

    I HIGHLY recommend this series!

    Torbjorn and Storfjell helped Guster in his story, and now they

    Torbjorn and Storfjell helped Guster in his story, and now they get a tale of their own. Their people are known for their outstanding butter, but one day Torbjorn accidentally gives the secret of their amazing butter away to a stranger. This soon brings war and gloom to his people. Torbjorn must call upon all the bravery he has to do what he needs to do.




    This novella continues the humorous and fun tone of the original novel. Taking two of the more memorable characters from the book, it tells a side story full of adventure. I enjoyed getting the background on Torbjorn and Storfjell. They were pretty hilarious in the book. More than anything, they stand up for themselves and each other. This fun story will be sure to entertain and help tide you over until the next book comes out!

    Evertaster & the Buttersmith's Gold tells the story about


    Evertaster & the Buttersmith's Gold tells the story about the Vikings and how they came to have so rich butter from their cows. We met Torbjorn and Storfjell in book 1. This story is all about their Viking ancestors.

    It is a lot shorter story, but a fun adventure one. A different Torbjorn and Storfjell are the main characters. They live in a village that was isolated from others. They would trade their butter and blueberry muffins to others then leave to go back home to wear they lived.

    They said Torbjorn was old enough to handle the bargaining at a young age. He made a lot of mistakes as was normal for first timers. But one mistake he told his village greatest seceret.

    The Buttersmith's gold is not over the top silly like the first book. You can almost believe that it really happened that way. It grabs your attention and holds onto it. It has a battle or two. Also Trolls chasing them. It shows how the different choices they made effected their whole tribe.

    The characters Torbjorn and Storfjell are just teenage brothers who are around 8 feet tall. Storfjell is the older brother. He makes a choice that his tribe does not like but saved them.
    Torbjorn made a mistake and then kept it a secret and made the problem worse before he told his tribe. They are likeable characters.

    I can't wait for the next Evertaster that brings Guster and his family their next adventure.
    I was given these two ebooks and asked in return to give honest review as part of their blog tour.

    As stated in the Forward, Reading Evertaster is not mandatory be

    As stated in the Forward, Reading Evertaster is not mandatory before reading this book. This book tells the tale of how the butter came to be. A very fitting companion to the trilogy if I do say so myself.
    The story begins at some point after Felicity's helicopters come and whisk the Johnsonville's to complete their part of the creation of the One Recipe, which left Braxton, Torbjorn, and Storfjell knocked out on the viking long boat with the cows (who were still doing all the rowing).
    The viking brothers tell Braxton that while everyone thinks vikings love blueberry muffins above all else that the best food in all of Midgard is the butter! With further prompting, Torbjorn begins to weave the tale of his clan's butter and why is it better than any other in all the world.
    I found myself chuckling as I read of Torbojorn's first venture into the biggest village in Midgard. To viking style, there was most certainly a brawl that would more than likely become a legend.
    There is so much actual Norse myth and legend woven into this story, it was a delight for me to read. I'm as huge fan of all things Midgard as anyone that knows me can attest lol.
    I do hope the author will make other companion stories for the trilogy, like the how the eggs came to be, or Arreviderci's chocolates. I'd most definitely be interested in those stories too and I'm sure others would be as well.
    I give this book 5 of 5 paws.
