The Sea of Trolls by Nancy Farmer
The Sea of Trolls

Sciteacher, November 2, 2006

I have read many of Nancy Farmer's books, including:
The Eye, the Ear, and the Arm and The House of the Scorpian. Both of these books were full of rich characters and had original storylines with lots of action. The Sea of Trolls had it all! The characters were not only interesting but vividly described as well. I loved how the author weaved the Norse mythology into the story too. I would highly recommend this book - and any other Nancy Farmer book - to anyone:)
