Description

Praise for BERSERKER:

"Emmy Labourne deftly melds Viking lore with the American West and creates something wholly new, a journey filled with heart-pounding suspense and surprising tenderness. Loved!"--Danielle Paige New York Times-bestselling author the Dorothy Must Die series

"Berserker combines the magic of Norse mythology with the thrill of the American West with staggering results. Startlingly original, unputdownable, and electrifying." --Kass Morgan, author of New York Times bestseller The 100

"A completely winning, romantic, and heart-wrenching historical fantasy. Your pulse will race from page one of this rich, rugged adventure of a book."--Alyson Noel, New York Times-bestselling author of The Immortals series

"Berserker embraces the beautiful brutality of both Viking lore and Frontier tales, and it does so without resorting to tired tropes or toxic masculinity. This is a brilliantly unexpected fusion of cowboys and old gods--intense and gritty and yet surprisingly tender--but the real strength of Emmy Laybourne's writing is that, for all their superhuman abilities, her characters are so very human."-- William Ritter, author of the New York Times-bestselling Jackaby series

"[Hanne's] internal struggle with her brutal nature as a berserker is intensely real and will resonate with readers who feel beset by forces outside of their control. A bloody and fast-paced genre mash-up."--Publishers Weekly

"Rich in description and compulsively readable."-- Booklist

"Laybourne has blended the fantasy of Norse gods with the American West with ease to create a coming-of-age -story that is full of intrigue, adventure, budding romance, and self-discovery. ...The blend of historical fiction and mythology is well done and the teenage protagonists are wholly relatable. "--School Library Journal


Praise for Emmy Laybourne:

"Simultaneously terrifying, hilarious, and action-packed, Sweet is a wild ride that holds up a warped mirror to our society. I loved it from the first line to the last." --Marie Lu, author of Legend and The Young Elites on Sweet

"Frighteningly real . . . Riveting." --The New York Times Book Review on Monument 14

"A tense, claustrophobic, and fast-paced thriller." --Publishers Weekly, starred review of Monument 14

"Pretty darn breathless." --Booklist on Sky on Fire
