From the high mountain dales of Norway comes a tale of loss and peril, torn loyalties and broken promises. Norse sagas, folklore and mythology intertwine in "Troll and Trylleri," a historical-fantasy novel that brings to life the wit and beauty of one far-seeing young woman who sets off an avalanche of change across the land of the midnight sun.

"An exciting, interesting story with a great heroine and a compelling quest. It also evokes the world of Norse mythology vividly. I believe fantasy readers want very much to be transported to another world, and this author has done that... I like the richly detailed world, and the writing is beautiful. This could potentially be a book I'd read multiple times."
