Publisher Comments:

andlt;b andgt;The conclusion to Newbery Honor author Nancy Farmerand#8217;s captivating Sea of Trolls trilogy. andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The crowning volume of the trilogy that began with andlt;i andgt;The Sea of Trolls andlt;/iandgt;and continued with andlt;i andgt;The Land of Silver Apples andlt;/iandgt;opens with a vicious tornado. (Odin on a Wild Hunt, as the young berserker Thorgil sees it.) The fields of Jackand#8217;s home village are devastated, the winter ahead looks bleak, and a monsterand#8212;a draugrand#8212;has invaded the forest outside of town.andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp; But in the hands of bestselling author Nancy Farmer, the direst of prospects becomes any readerand#8217;s reward. Soon, Jack, Thorgil, and the Bard are off on a quest to right the wrong of a death caused by Father Severus. Their destination is Notland, realm of the fin folk, though they will face plenty of challenges and enemies before get they get there. Impeccably researched and blending the lore of Christian, Pagan, and Norse traditions, this expertly woven tale is beguilingly suspenseful and, ultimately, a testament to love.
