Synopsis:

BATTLES. BLUEBERRIES. BOVINES.
TORBJORN AND STORFJELL’S HISTORY UNFOLDS IN AN EPIC EVERTASTER NOVELLA.

Everyone knows the most coveted treasure of the Viking Age was blueberry muffins. Blueberry muffins so succulent that if you sniffed just a whiff, you’d want a whole bite. If you bit a bite, you’d want a batch; if you snatched a batch, you’d stop at nothing short of going to war just to claim them all.
Young Torbjorn Trofastsonn comes from the clan that makes them. He’s a Viking through and through – he’s thirteen winters old, larger than most respectable rocks, and most of all, a Buttersmith. That’s what he thinks anyway, until a charismatic merchant makes Torbjorn question his place among the muffin-makers. When Torbjorn lets the secret of his clan’s muffin recipe slip, he calls doom and destruction down upon his peaceful village and forces his brother Storfjell and his clansmen to do the one thing they are ill-prepared to do: battle for their lives.

Review

The Buttersmiths' Gold has got to be one of the quirkiest, most ridiculously brilliant books I've read and I could not get enough of it. There was both a serious and silly tone throughout this book that both blended together beautifully. The story's just so quirky that that you can't help but accept the silly as normal, leaving you to see some of the more important points of the book. All the different components were balanced out to give this book the perfect mood for the story it told..

This book doesn't have the most amazing, edge-of-your-seat, enthralling tale but you can tell this if you read the blurb. The story is engaging and fun! It's a very comical story line and I think it can be enjoyed by people of all ages. After all, I'm a fussy, moody, hard-to-please teenager and I really enjoyed Torbjorn's (and Storfjell's) story so I think this book can be enjoyed by anyone, as long as they look at it in the right way.

The writing was simple and elegant, it flowed really well with the story and I could easily grasp what was going on. Though the viking names were very different from names of now-a-days, once I decided on a pronunciation I was easily able to keep/recall it as the smooth style of writing didn't leave me fussing over confusing words/sentences.

The subject of the story is just so different, I couldn't help but be intrigued and after finishing the book I just want more! It's a light, quick read but it is filling, it satisfies my bookish needs (at least until something else catches my eye). At the end, this story lets you go, not in a 'this book's so forgettable' way but more an 'it was a good meal and now I shall sit back and relax for a while' (I think the books food-talk is rubbing off on me!). I really enjoyed this book and will happily read more from this author!
