Dear Librarian:

Vikings rule! HarperCollins has just released the second book in our RuneWarriors fantasy-comedy series, RUNEWARRIORS: SWORD OF DOOM, and we couldn't be more thrilled.

Like book one (now in paperback), it follows the epic adventures of 13-year-old Dane the Defiant and puts a fresh twist on Norse mythology and the ancient world of the Vikings. A rollicking journey of danger and self-discovery, it tackles important issues of adolescence (love, death, self-reliance, responsibility), and is told with equal parts heart and irreverent humor.

In short, a fun read that was enormously fun to write!

On behalf ofauthors everywhere, we thank you for the critical role you continue to play in helping our books find a readership and salute your efforts to keep alive the love of books with readers of all ages.
