This is the dramatic conclusion to Katherine Langrish's highly-acclaimed "Troll" trilogy. When seafaring traders, Gunnar, and his sword-wiedling son, Harald Silkenhair, land in Trollsvik, looking for crew to join their journey to "Vinland" (North America), Hilde is desperate to join the ship. She begs her parents to let her go as Gunnar's wife Astrid's companion, and when Peer agrees to go and look after her, her parents reluctantly agree. But, Gunnar and Harald are dangerous men. Harald has killed a man, and Gunnar has been cursed and is losing his wits in fear that the dead man's ghost is following him. Harald has an uncontrollable, raging temper, and a perilous rivalry develops between he and Peer. By the time they finally reach the shores of Vinland, the settlement is looking less of an attractive proposition. And that's before they meet the "Skraelings" (the Native American people) and the terrifying Jenu - the cannibal giant with the heart of ice...Action-packed, suspense-fuelled and with a wonderful cast of characters, "Troll Blood" is a truly rip-roaring read.

Publisher and industry reviews
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
