Young Reader Reaction: This book was very entertaining and funny. This would be good as a gift and I'd recommend borrowing ot from the library. I liked the humor and the plentiful action a lot, and there were interesting references to Vikings and Norse mythology. I would recommend it for mostly boys because it contains flatulence jokes and other humor along those lines.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061449385, Paperback)

Dane is 100% Viking. He's courageous. Tough. But he has a big problem.

He needs to choose a nickname. Dane the Dangerous? Dane the Despicable? He just can't decide. Even his best friends, Drott the Dim and Fulnir the Stinking, aren't any help. But when Dane witnesses his proud father shamed by the tyrant Thidrek the Terrifying, Dane's indignation earns him a moniker that sticks—Dane the Defiant.

So defiant is Dane that when Thidrek kidnaps Dane's beloved Astrid in hopes of trading her for Thor's Hammer, the ancient, magical weapon of mass destruction, Dane goes after him like a bat out of Valhalla. Navigating treacherous seas, a nasty smiting by the gods, and a rather lonely frost giant, Dane and his rowdy band of Norsemen will stop at nothing to end Thidrek's terrifying reign and take their place among the greatest Viking heroes of all time.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:11:33 -0400)

In an ancient and mystical time, fourteen-year-old Dane joins forces with his rival, Jarl the Fair, to retrieve the Shield of Odin and Astrid, the girl they love, from the tyrant Thidrick, fulfilling a destiny long foretold.
