Publisher Description

The gripping, heart-wrenching companion novel to Emmy Laybourne’s much acclaimed historical fantasy Berserker.

Rare powers. Precious metals. A final showdown.

1886. The Hemstads possess supernatural powers bestowed upon their family by the ancient Norse gods. Now Sissel, the youngest at 16, discovers her gift: she is a Ransacker. She can find gold and other precious metals and pull them to her. Hers is an awesome and dangerous gift.

Sissel and her siblings have been living peacefully in a small town in Montana, trying to blend-in and escape the violent events that haunt them, but they’ve all been tricked—the handsome young man courting Sissel is secretly a Pinkerton spy, reporting to the man who wants to control them, the Baron Fjelstad.

Sissel’s beau is not the only one interested in her new talents. She’s also caught the attention of a local mine owner who’s convinced Sissel has a lucky touch when it comes to finding gold. With betrayal lurking around every corner, Sissel must tread carefully. Harnessing her powers could bring great fortune . . . or cause the powerful Baron to come hunting her and her siblings down for once and for all.

A whirlwind of an adventure! A must-read!!!

I loved the first book in the BERSERKER duology and RANSACKER certainly does not disappoint! This book is a whirlwind of an adventure filled with increasing intensity! The world-building is unreal and the evolution of these characters stunned me. I did not expect to connect with Sissel so deeply, but I'm so glad the author allowed us to get to know her better! A must-read for sure!

(Note: I received an early review copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.)

Satisfying end and good character development

I really enjoyed getting to see Sissel grow out of her whiny stage and seeing all the characters mature. I think the ending was really satisfying and enjoyed it! One weird thought while I was reading is that this series would work good as movies.
