    1. Viking Boy is the coming of age story of Gunnar, whose peaceful life on his family steading is shattered forever by raiders. As his father dies, protecting his family, and his mother is taken prisoner by the raiders Gunnar swears a blood oath to avenge his family and to take back his life. But unfortunately, as such things are, it is not an easy path but it is a path that will make Gunnar who he was always foretold to beThis is a lovely middle-grade book which is greatly reminiscent of the estim [...]


    2. Gunnar, a 14 year old Viking farm boy, swears an oath to kill Skuli, and avenge his Father's murder. There is NO sequel!!A great adventure through Viking life and the mythology - he becomes a thrall, visits Kaupang and Iceland, meets the Valkaryries, Odin and Vahalla.Older fiction - great book for boys. Double spaced text, serif font and no pictures to support the text, althou some vivid and gruesome illustrations.


    3. This book promises ‘Blood. Fire. Vengeance’ and it doesn’t disappoint. Gunnar is the Viking boy of the title who is forced to run away to save himself after his homestead is raided and his father is murdered by the Wolf Men – ‘bringers of fire and slaughter’. His long journey to the Land of Ice and Fire is filled with many dangers, but he has to find Valhalla, for that is where Brunhild, Queen of the Valkyries, has taken his father - to the Hall of Fallen Heroes - and where Gunnar ha [...]



    4. I read this in mind to use for my Year 3 class (aged 7-8) for our Saxons and Vikings topic.Really enjoyed this book. It is slightly too old for my class, but if I was doing this topic with older children, I would most certainly use it. I will recommend this book to my higher ability readers to read on their own though.It is a great epic tale, worthy of being told in mead halls in the Viking times! It is an epic quest of a young boy, trying to complete his blood quest to avenge his fathers death. [...]


    5. A young boy swears to avenge his father’s death and is soon involved in a mythical adventure.I thought this book had a really good story but the writing was a bit stilted in places.
