Information

Jack was eleven when the berserkers loomed out from the fog and nabbed him."Ships are becoming built, swords are being forged."" It seems that things are stirring across the water,"the Bard had warned.

"Of course. People don't make ships and swords unless they intend to work with them."

The year is A. D. 793. In the next months, Jack and his little sister, Lucy, are enslaved by Olaf One-Brow and his fierce young shipmate, Thorgil. With a crow named Bold Heart for mysterious company, they are swept up into an adventure-quest in the spirit of The Lord of the Rings.

Three time Newbery honor author Nancy Farmer's epic fantasy, The Sea of Trolls, is gigantic in each way. Then, just as Jack is studying to tap into and control his power, he is kidnapped (together with his little sister, Lucy) and taken to the court of King Ivar the Boneless and his half troll queen Frith. Along the way Jack faces everything from giant golden troll-bears to man-eating spiders, however each frightening encounter brings wisdom and understanding to the budding young Bard. There are big themes--hope, despair, life and death. At the center of this massive adventure is in fact a small Saxon boy named Jack, who's never been much good at something till the Bard of his medieval village makes him an apprentice. --Jennifer Hubert Farmer's skillful melding of history, mythology, and humor, is reminiscent of both Tamora Pierce and Terry Pratchett's medieval fantasies, and will no doubt be HUGELY enjoyed by fantasy readers of all ages. There are big Vikings and bigger trolls. When a single of Jack's amateur spells causes the evil queen's beautiful hair to fall out, he is forced to undertake a unsafe quest across the Sea of Trolls to create things right, or suffer the consequences--the sacrifice of his beloved sister to Frith's patron goddess, Freya. No quester who enters these pages with Jack will go away unsatisfied. But, like all of Farmer's fine work, the significant scale has room for enormous quantities of heart and humor. At a substantial 450+ pages, the sheer size of this hefty tome is impressive.
