“Berserker is a triumph, introducing a wholly-new breed of Viking superhero." ?Alyson Noël, New York Times- bestselling author of The Immortals series
“A brilliantly unexpected fusion of cowboys and old gods...” – William Ritter, New York Times-bestselling author of the Jackaby series
Are Hanne's powers a gift from the old Norse gods, or a curse?
Hanne's brother Stieg swears their powers are a gift from the old gods, but Hanne Hemstad knows she is truly cursed. It's not Stieg’s fault that their father is dead, their mother has left, and their brother Knut has been accused of a crime he didn’t commit.
No, the fault lies with Hanne and her inability to control her murderous “gift”—she is a Berserker. When someone she loves is threatened, she flies into a killing state.
Now the siblings must leave Norway for the American frontier or risk being brought to justice.
Aided by Owen Bennett, a young cowboy who agrees to be their guide, Hanne and her siblings use their powers to survive the perilous trail, where blizzards, wild animals, and vicious bounty hunters await.
The thrills of the journey sweep Hanne and Owen together in romance, but their new love means nothing unless they can escape the ruthless men chasing them down.
Can they reach Hanne’s uncle, the one man who can teach her how to control her drive to kill?

In Monument 14: Savage Drift, the stunningly fierce conclusion to the Monument 14 trilogy, author Emmy Laybourne ups the stakes even higher for a group of kids who have continually survived the unthinkable. Can they do so one last time?
“A tense, claustrophobic, and fast-paced thriller.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
In Emmy Laybourne's action-packed debut novel, six high school kids (some popular, some not), two eighth graders (one a tech genius), and six little kids trapped together in a chain superstore build a refuge for themselves inside. While outside, a series of escalating disasters, beginning with a monster hailstorm and ending with a chemical weapons spill, seems to be tearing the world—as they know it—apart.
