CHILDREN/YOUNG ADULT BOOK CHOICE IS.....
GIVEAWAY ENDED
RUNE WARRIORS:
SWORD OF DOOM
BY JAMES JENNEWEIN
and TOM S. PARKER
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Can life get any worse for Dane the Defiant?

The same villagers who once praised him for his courage in defeating Thidrek the Terrifying now blame him for everything that has gone wrong since then: The torrential downpours. The dwindling food supplies. Even the rampant outbreaks of armpit lice. Dane's deceased father would never have let things get so bad, the village elders say.

But then Dane is summoned to the fortress of King Eldred, where he receives the final piece of his father's legacy: an ancient secret written in mysterious runes that leads to no less than the treasure of the gods. But the treasure, he learns, is cursed, and his mother is kidnapped.

And so, braving an army of angry trolls and warring frost giants (and other fantastic creatures there isn't space here to describe), Dane and his friends must decipher the cryptic clues and embark on a quest to find the enchanted treasure and save her life. Oh, and all the while battling ultimate evil. Can Dane be the hero he has always wanted to be? Or will he fall prey to the curse and betray those he loves?

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
James Jennewein lives in a bloodthirsty, barbaric land filled with evil tyrants, slimy monsters, and comely maidens. It is called Los Angeles. 

Go to the new RUNEWARRIORS.net website HERE to read more REALLY fun and interesting things about James. 

Tom S. Parker, who has Viking ancestors on his Swedish mother's side, enjoys pillaging now and then with his pet Chihuahua, Tony. He lives in a moated fortress in Topanga, California.

Go to the new RUNEWARRIORS.net website HERE to read more REALLY fun and interesting things about Tom.  
PRAISE FOR RUNE WARRIORS:
"…Hideous perils and hilarious misadventures. A rollicking page-turner with definite appeal… boys especially will enjoy the pell-mell action, the wisenheimer narration and the belch-and-flatulence humor embedded in the adventurous tale."
                  -- Kirkus Reviews

"A rollicking, big-hearted coming-of-age tale... classic rite-of-passage storytelling. This rigorous, vigorous modern telling of ancient adventure, complete with body-odor, belches and well-timed flatulence, barrels along with a salty grace which makes the reader glad to know it’s only the first of a planned trilogy. RuneWarriors’ ruggedly Nordic mythscape will send shivers of anticipation down even the most jaded middle-school spine…"
                  -- Bloomsbury Review

I found it interesting that 'Despite their reputation for animalistic and uncouth behavior, the Vikings were actually quite fastidious about personal grooming.'
