About the Book

In the legendary land of the Vikings, even the most ordinary boy can become a hero.

It isn’t easy being ordinary in Danmark, especially for twelve-year-old Gorm.  Growing up in a land of fearsome Vikings, where warrior kings rule and his own father is a daring explorer; Gorm would like to become known for more than a stomach that won’t stop grumbling.

When his dad goes missing, Gorm sets out on a quest to find him. Along the way he meets Godefred, the great Danish Sea-King, who has problems of his own.  As their fates become entwined, rumors and lies threaten to rip Gorm’s world apart. It will take more than courage for him to see his quest through, and Gorm will need friends. It’s too bad he’s no longer sure who he can trust.

About the Author

Growing up, Lisa Dahl spent many happy summers in Denmark, where she and her brother imagined they were Vikings.  Not the marauding type who terrorized Europe, through her brother did dress up as a Viking one Halloween and loot her candy. They were more fascinated by the tales of those courageous Norse explorers who dared to discover new lands. The story of Gorm was born during these childhood adventures. Today she lives in Québec, Canada, with a black miniature dachshund named Leia.
