Erik held me until my shoulders stopped shaking—whether it was a minute or an hour, I couldn't tell. The only things I knew for sure were:
(1) I was trapped a thousand years in the past, with little hope of ever going home. And,
(2) I was wrapped in the arms of the most absurdly gorgeous Viking to have ever walked the face of the Earth.
Maybe my old life was overrated.

When seventeen-year-old Saga Skånstad discovers an antique dagger, she's instantly sucked into a world where Vikings rule the seas and dragons roam the skies, and the only thing more dangerous than the chief who takes her captive is the rival who steals her away. The heir of Norway's most feared tribe is fierce, cold, and absolutely unyielding. With intruders encroaching upon his borders, Erik Halvarsson has little patience for the girl whose ignorance threatens his very existence. He enlists Saga in the magical Valkyris Academy, where she learns the skills she'll need to protect herself from foreign raiders and domestic terrors. But nothing can protect her from falling for the one guy in all the world she's absolutely forbidden to choose . . . or from risking everything to unlock the secrets that haunt him.

When darkness threatens Saga's new home, she must decide whether to return to the life she's always known, or fight for a love she never could have imagined. Her decision will determine a legacy—not only for Saga, but for the world she never knew she was fated to lead.

About the Author

Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, S.T. Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (where she became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and studied Shakespeare in Europe… where she became overly fond of McVitie's cookies. Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired her YA Norse fantasy series' (Elsker Saga, Ære Saga, Night War Saga and Viking Academy). And her love of a galaxy far, far away inspired her to write children's books for Star Wars. She hopes her characters make you smile, and she dreams of skiing on Jotunheim and Hoth.

When on vacation at her family’s cottage in Norway, Saga finds a dagger in the Ocean and nothing in her life is the same again. Thrust into the past, she finds herself in an era of Vikings and dragons. Saga is a great character, her strength, resilience, determination and lack of self pity endears her to you and her roller coaster emotions towards Erik are both amusing and exciting. Erik is definitely a drool worthy Viking if ever there was one. He is strong, handsome, fierce and has a heart of gold. This well written story draws you in from the very beginning and leaves you dying for more at the end. It is a great start to the series, and I look forward to reading book 2.

Viking academy is written in the perspective of a 17-18 year old girl named Saga. While vacationing in Norway with her family as she does every summer her life is changed in an instant. A magic dagger throws her 1,000 years into the past to the era of dragons and vikings and war. Saga is a strong yet relatable character and she is growing as a person at her stay at Viking Academy. She is also falling for Erik the heir to Valkyris- the more feared tribe. Her life is a roller coaster but through her mental pep talks she shows the determination to make it through whatever comes her way. I am beyond excited to see where Saga and Erik go from here in this series
