Tebbetts, Christopher. The quest for faith.

Zack is transported back in time once again (following his adventure in Saga One, Viking Pride) to help the Vikings find the first of the objects needed for peace in the land. The friends he has made in the past resemble his friends and family in the present; even his enemies look the same! This time, Zack is on his way to Jotunheim, the land of the giants, to find the helmet of faith. They are pursued by Erik, an enemy, and must outmaneuver him and his crew, The way to Jotunheim is through a waterfall, and after almost drowning, they find that the giants would just as soon eat them as help them. The helmet of faith is hidden in the treasure vaults, and Zack and his friends must fight Erik and his crew after finding the helmet. Zack uses the helmet to fly over Erik's ship and cut the ropes that hold up the sails so Erik's ship must row home rather than depend on wind power. Junior high boys who love adventure and football will enjoy this book. Zack's dad is a devoted Minnesota Vikings football fan and that is interspersed with the search story. Fast paced and interesting. Stacey Conrad, Reading Teacher, Palmyra. MO
