Reviews
Walker (8 years old) Every night I wanted my Mom or Dad to read more. It was really exciting. It had Vikings, dragons, spiders, a boy who has lots of adventures, a magical land, a Queen who has her hair fall off and a crow. It made me laugh too.
Kathy Larkin Children In Paradise (Chicago, IL) The Norse stories are so full of buckle and swash, I am glad that the door to the land of the North has been opened again. Farmer's tale has dragons, swords, and brave hearts, what else does one need for a great read?
Rene Kirkpatrick All for Kids Books & Music (Seattle, WA) ...A fast-paced, very funny, adventure story, perfect for both boys and girls.
Mary Brown Books, Bytes, and Beyond (Glen Rock, NJ) A new Nancy Farmer novel is always cause for celebrating because you know it will be something incredibly inventive and wholly absorbing. Nancy Farmer spins such complete stories that we don't need a sequel or even a prequel -- we just need another Nancy Farmer novel!
Scott Meyer Merritt Bookstore (Millbrook, NY) ...What Nancy Farmer does best -- show us that appearances do deceive. Or as the publishers say "She has never told a richer, funnier tale, nor offered more timeless encouragement to young seekers than 'Just say no to pillaging'."
Richie Partington www.richiespicks.com The Sea of Trolls nearly defies categorization, there are so many sides to it...the latest success in the career of one of the great storytellers of our time.
Susan Hirschman former longtime publisher of Greenwillow Books I think The Sea of Trolls is magnificent. Absolutely the best I've read. I read it in a gulp and was crushed when I had finished it. I wasn't ready to give up any of the characters. It is truly splendid.
Sarah Todd Hannah Schwartz's Children's Book World (Haverford, PA) Bringing her wit, high style, and flair for dramatic storytelling to The Sea of Trolls, Farmer makes Norse mythology and Saxon history both intriguing and enthralling. Dragons and trolls, wise women and bards, runes and lunatics...these are the makings of this great tale, and one deserving of fame.
Zach (11 years old) Sea of Trolls is one of the best books ever. It's sorta like Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings and they both meet Eragon. It rocks. It's a puzzling mystery but at the same time a comedy with tons of pusle pounding, adrenilene racing, page flipping things going on. It's awesome that Nancy Farmer can get you so excited about what you think is going to happen next, and then bam she swerves and has something completely unexpected happen that's even better than what you even hoped would happen. When will the next one be ready?
Jamie (9 years old) This is the next Harry Potter and I loved it. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
