In this much-anticipated conclusion to the Sea of Trolls trilogy, Notland is no place to seek one's true calling. Or is it?
This final chapter of the trilogy begun in The Sea of Trolls gathers steam slowly, but has the same enchanting quirkiness of its predecessors. Jack, the apprentice bard, is now 14 and living with Thorgil, the surly shield maiden, and their mentor, the Bard, in his native village after the scarring experiences of their previous adventure. When a draugr, the undead spirit of a wronged mermaid, is roused by the village priest's mystical bell, her need for justice sends Jack and his friends beyond Saxon lands to Notland, the kingdom of the fin folk, as they seek a way to lay the draugr to rest. Farmer's prose flows easily and the nuggets of action are as lively and unexpected as ever. But Jack is confronting a knottier lesson than before: the mystery of how joy and sorrow intertwine. While the meditative pace this story's complexity calls for replaces the narrative drive of the earlier books, it brings other pleasures and creates a satisfying close for the series if indeed this is the end. Ages 10 14.
Good Book, bad ending
Great series but the ending is the most anticlimactic experience ever
This is the best series I have ever read. This is better than Harry Potter, lord of the rings, and many others. I adore this series and wish that the author will write a 4th book. I recommend this series to all, and I bet fiction lovers will Love it. I love the books and they amazing, I can't wait to read other books the author has written.
a satisfying end to an amazing series
this is a great book
