Berserker, by Emmy Laybourne, tells the tale of a teenage girl, Hanne Amundsdatter, and her struggle with the power of her bloodline, the Nytte, a mysterious Nordic power which forces its user to kill, and those that would seek to abuse this power. She and her family must escape their homeland and flee to America, where the secret to control the Nytte awaits. Combining elements of Viking mythos with the setting of the rough American frontier, Berserker skillfully weaves together settings which one would think impossible to work together. I recommend Berserker to those who usually enjoy realistic settings featuring lower fantasy elements, or to those who just enjoy fantasy in general. Berserker is aimed towards an older audience, featuring mature themes, and so I would recommend it only to teenagers and above. - Edwin
