That's the reality Peter must face in this award-winning middle Grade novel, The Viking's Apprentice.
Campbell's Cove is a small town surrounded in mystery and intrigue. The history of the Cove tells us of dragons, trolls, goblins and the evil Master who stole children, livestock and, strangest of all, eggs from the Cove every year. Aided by the hideous monster, Tolldruck there seemed no stopping their evil plan.
That was until, centuries ago, a Viking warrior came to Campbell's Cove and vowed to rid it of all evil, and claim the prize offered by the mysterious church elders. The Viking succeeded and everything returned to normal. The evil was gone, and Campbell's Cove was safe again... Until now.

Fun kids story mixing Vikings, boogie men, monsters, and magic with a summer adventure at the granddad's home. For 110 pages it was a blast to read with lots of fantasy and action. I definitely recommend this book.
I lucked out and found Kevin McLeod on Twitter, offering free audiobooks. I'd missed the deadline, but he was cool enough to pass them on anyway. I love cool authors. So Before I even get on with the review, I want to send a bit on these covers. Candy! They're eye candy for me- aren't they tots-fabu?! The imagery, the detail, the total awesomeness is just what I love in book covers. Believe me when I say, both of these books would have been on my shelf, even if McLeod hadn't given the audio. They are what I love most in books... outside of the story. So, I'm raving 5-stars on cover work alone, but on to the actual stories, The Viking's Apprentice and The Viking's Apprentice: The Master's Revenge Book 1: The Viking's Apprentice Peter and George were looking for adventure, but nothing like what they eventually found. Thanks to an age-old, special secret Granddad's been holding to, the boys were in for the time of their lives. Filled with trolls, witches, and the fierce of magic, they learned of a legend so amazing, so heroic, they dive right in. All I can say is that Campbell's Cove is very luck to have such dedicated people in their corner. The Viking's Apprentice is a story that takes you on the ride of any child's life. Full of danger, magic and swords, anything's possible. My son and I loved the journey. The story wasn't too long and McLeod's gift of narration and description made this book a grand read. It also helped that Danielle Cohen was a really good narrator. Check out The Viking's Apprentice, book one- available now and so worth the time. *For the review of both books: http://www.areneehunt.com/the-reviews/the-vikings-apprentice-book-2-the-masters-revenge-by-kevin-mcleod The Viking's Apprentice & The Viking's Apprentice: The Master's Revenge Kevin McLeod CreateSpace Independent Publishing April 13, 2013
