proposed cover for Troll and Trylleri

        Troll and Trylleri

In the troll-haunted mountains of the north, three young women guard their secrets. ~ The lovely one, a king's daughter, plots treason. ~ Her maid, unwilling pawn of the Norns, lays plans to flee her sharp-tongued mistress. ~ The third, an ugly goat-herder, masquerades among the human folk of this high mountain dale, hiding from her own monstrous kin.

In TROLL AND TRYLLERI, set in ninth century Norway, the low-born maid drops her plans for escape when lumbering trolls seize the king's daughter. She plunges into the Otherworld after her mistress, armed with nothing but her own wits, the goat-herder's advice, and a magic key.
