Publisher's Summary

Voted number one in "Smart Novels to Read Your Kids". (Goodreads)
What would you do if you discovered nothing was as you thought and the fate of your friends, perhaps even the world, was in your hands? That’s the reality Peter must face in the 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.
When Peter and George visit Peter’s Granddad’s amazing mansion in Campbell’s Cove for the summer holidays they had no idea it would change their lives forever. Deep beneath them in the caves of the Cove an evil has returned, an evil which threatens to destroy everything they believed to be true about the world. Peter must learn who he really is, and what he must do to save the children of the Cove. Together with George and his Granddad they go on a journey that reveals secrets, test friendships and confronts their biggest fears. Can Peter save the children? Can the Master be stopped? Find out in The Viking’s Apprentice.

Blew Me Away! Great Fantasy Series!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Viking's Apprentice to be better than the print version?

Yes I would. This narrator brings something to the story that you just don't get by reading it. The life that she gave to each of the characters is unique and special and I found my self caring more for them hearing the story than I did as compared to when I read the story.


What other book might you compare The Viking's Apprentice to and why?

The Lightning Thief comes to mind as he is a young boy who find his world is really not what is seems to be and he has a legacy that he is due to inherit.


What about Danielle Cohen’s performance did you like?

I thought at first for a story about a Viking that having a female narrator was an odd choice but I was oh so very wrong the narrator does just a stunning job. This narrator brings something to the story that you just don't get by reading it. The life that she gives to each of the characters is unique and special and I found my self caring more for them hearing the story than I did as compared to when I read the story.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes this is a short book that I listened to in one day during my morning and evening walks making the walks enjoyable.
