EverTaster: The Buttersmith's Gold Blog Tour by Adam Glendon Sidwell

Evertaster Tour
 
The Buttersmiths' Gold
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.

My Review:

Young Torbjorn is sent to trade the delicious blueberry muffins for treasures that the clan is in need of.

But a merchant gets Torbjorn to tell him the real secret of the tasty butter which causes a terrible fate to come down on his clan.

Now, it is up to Torbjorn and Storfjell to save the day and the cows.
 
I read Evertaster, the first in this series and really enjoyed it so I was really happy to read The Buttersmiths Gold. Although I have to say, I kind of like Evertaster better, I wish could experience food the way Guster does!

While the Buttersmiths Gold was not my total favorite in the series, it was still a fun, engaging, and a sort of silly, read for kids who like vikings, adventure, animals and food. I could see my niece enjoying this story. I liked the way 'food' was used in the story, very fun and unique in my opinion. The overall theme of the story is loyalty to family and loved ones, an important lesson in life in general. In fact, the brothers in the story bond together while being chased!
