In this third adventure, Siri and Zack are kidnapped and forced to help the dreaded Viking Rollie in his attempt to sack Paris. How will they save the city without Rollie noticing? And what happens if they fail?

This comic combines adventure and history in a humorous story, with colourful characters and fascinating settings.

Review by Stacey

Siri the Viking is back in her third book after her adventures in Siri the Viking: The Emperor’s Treasure and Siri the Viking: Mimir’s Well

Siri is the eleven-year-old daughter of Viking village Chieftain, Torkel. She is super smart and always has a plan up her sleeve.

In this third book, Ivar the Terrible and his accomplice Grim are trying to come up with ideas to get into the city of Paris so that they can plunder it on the orders of Viking chief Rollie. After many failed attempts they decide that they need someone very clever to come up with a plan and kidnap Siri and her best friend Zack.

But Siri is far smarter than they realise and she has no intention of helping them succeed, but how long will it take them to realise it?

I adore the Siri the Viking books. They are fun, filled to the brim with adventure, are written engagingly, and are educational too. What’s not to like?

The stories are all written in a comic-book style and the illustrations will have children giggling along. It is wonderful to see a young female shown in such a talented and bright way in a Viking story. Siri is a wonderful character and I hope she has many more books to come.

Located at the back of the story is factual information about real raids on Paris by Vikings and who the Berserkers were which is pretty interesting to read about. The whole series is just amazing and will keep children entertained and amused.
