Review by: Mary Anna Dunn on Aug. 08, 2012 :
This is the kind of book that you keep thinking about when you have put it away. Alll through the day you will find yourself hoping for just a few minutes to pick up again. Loosely based on a familiar folk tale, the world depicted is magical, but the people are very real. An excellent choice for young adults and readers transitioning to adult fiction, as well as for adult lovers of imaginative tales with roots in folk traditions.

I really liked this book. Anyone who is familiar with the fairy tale this book is based on will recognize the basic plot, but there are some intriguing twists added. The concept of troll-magic is well done.
Some of the character growth shown through conversations instead of actions seems a little forced, but this book is still very entertaining, enough so that I am looking forward to reading others by this author.
