Review

Fifteen-year-old Rigg, son of Leif Eriksson, loves mystery and adventure. In the early eleventh century, he finds both of these in abundance when his father sails away and leaves him behind in Vinland, the Vikings' precarious foothold on the wild Newfoundland coast. Soon, Rigg makes an amazing discovery. The Vikings aren't alone in this alien land. But who inhabits it with them? Demons, giants, or another human tribe – one that equals the Norse invaders in skill and bravery?



"This is a novel about coming of age, overcoming prejudice and superstition, conquering irrational fears and appreciating the high cost of precipitous violent behaviour. Suitable for possible schools adoption, Viking Quest will have the strongest appeal to boys in the last four years of high school."

(Fred Donnelly The New Brunswick Reader 2001-09-08)

"This is a gripping story of adventure, but much more, for it projects a real sense of how the Vikings understood the world. Tom Henighan presents the beliefs that motivated them and their great ability to deal with the practical problems of their environment."

(Andrea Deakin The Peace Arch News 2001-07-11)

"Students interested in Viking lore as well as those with a thirst for adventure stories will enjoy this offering."

(Victoria Pennell Resource Links 2001-12-01)

"Henighan has crafted an involving coming of age story that blends adventure and an evocative setting with personal transformation."

(Kelly Holmes The Book Shelf 2002-01-01)

I don't even know what to write, it was awful. So boring and the story is all over the lace, barely 110 pages
