Reviews

Gr 5-8-In the final volume in the trilogy, Peer and his friend Hilde join Vikings raiders Gunnar Ingolfsson and his son Harald Silkenhair, Gunnar's young wife, and their crew aboard a longship bound for Vinland. Eventually the travelers reach land, returning to Gunnar's previously established settlement. When Peer discovers the evidence of a murder, relations with the ruthless Vikings begin to deteriorate. After a near-deadly confrontation with Harald, Peer flees and finds refuge with a civilization based on the Native American Mi'kmaq people. They help him to recover and treat him with kindness. When it's discovered that Harald has cold-bloodedly murdered two of their warriors, the tribe is bent on revenge. Peer must find a way to free Hilde from the Vikings and shield her from the violence to come. Langrish skillfully weaves Norse and Native American mythology among the fantasy and adventure elements. Mythical creatures and mystical elements abound, and magic is an everyday part of the characters' existence. Peer and Hilde are now teenagers, and their changing relationship-from friendship to romance-is believably depicted. Fans of the first two books will enjoy this one.-Ginny Collier, Dekalb County Public Library, Decatur, GA Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Praise for Troll Mill: "Despite the high drama of Troll Mill, it is moments of comedy! which will make children rock with delight and long for the further adventures of Peer." Amanda Craig, The Times Praise for Troll Fell: In Troll Fell Katherine Langrish has unearthed a captivating world. Bleak and captivating. Her style is quirky and hypnotic and her characters are instantly recognizable as someone you know, or someone you wish you didn't. Eoin Colfer "Troll Fell is a joy! a marvellous, magical adventure!" Amanda Craig, The Times "The style is enthralling, and the adventure persuasive and gripping. A juicy read for children." Independent on Sunday "From the opening page! Langrish's power to locate her story in the reader's imagination is reminiscent of Alan Garner." Sunday Telegraph "Atmospheric, with lowering weather, storms and blizzards, luridly imaginative! with nice touches of humour!" Children's Bookseller "Troll Fell, exciting, funny, vividly written and tightly plotted, is steeped in the essence of Scandinavian folklore!" Carousel
