about

A Norse teen and her family are forced to flee to the American West to escape the effects of an ancestral Viking curse in this jaw-dropping historical paranormal romance from the author of Monument 14.

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. The siblings must leave Norway for the American frontier or risk being brought to justice.

Aided by 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.

Will they be able to reach their uncle, the one man Hanne believes may be able to teach her how to control her drive to kill? With Berserker, Emmy Laybourne, the author of Monument 14, presents her vision of an American west studded with Viking glory.

Emmy Laybourne, author of Sweet and the Monument 14 trilogy, is a writer and actress. She lives in Upstate New York with her husband, two kids, and a flock of six nifty chickens.

Praise for BERSERKER:"Emmy Labourne deftly melds Viking lore with the American West and creates something wholly new, a journey filled with heart-pounding suspense and surprising tenderness. Loved!"--Danielle Paige New York Times-bestselling author the Dorothy Must Die series"Berserker combines the magic of Norse mythology with the thrill of the American West with staggering results. Startlingly original, unputdownable, and electrifying." --Kass Morgan, author of New York Times bestseller The 100 "A completely winning, romantic, and heart-wrenching historical fantasy. Your pulse will race from page one of this rich, rugged adventure of a book."-Alyson Noel, New York Times-bestselling author of The Immortals series"Berserker embraces the beautiful brutality of both Viking lore and Frontier tales, and it does so without resorting to tired tropes or toxic masculinity. This is a brilliantly unexpected fusion of cowboys and old gods-intense and gritty and yet surprisingly tender-but the real strength of Emmy Laybourne's writing is that, for all their superhuman abilities, her characters are so very human."-- William Ritter, author of the New York Times-bestselling Jackaby series"[Hanne's] internal struggle with her brutal nature as a berserker is intensely real and will resonate with readers who feel beset by forces outside of their control. A bloody and fast-paced genre mash-up."--Publishers Weekly"Rich in description and compulsively readable."-- BooklistPraise for Emmy Laybourne:"Simultaneously terrifying, hilarious, and action-packed, Sweet is a wild ride that holds up a warped mirror to our society. I loved it from the first line to the last." -Marie Lu, author of Legend and The Young Elites on Sweet"Frighteningly real . . . Riveting." -The New York Times Book Review on Monument 14"A tense, claustrophobic, and fast-paced thriller." -Publishers Weekly, starred review of Monument 14"Pretty darn breathless." -Booklist on Sky on Fire
