      A lot more interesting than I thought it would be. Found the first by chance in the library, and decided it was good enough to give the second a try. I loved it more than the first!!!

    2. Matthew Goode Ⓥ on said:

      I enjoyed reading this, but I found it hard to connect with how the non-human sentient creatures are regarded - they are all second-class citizens of the world, but there is no explanation as to why this really ought to be the case (as in, how do the humans of the situation justify the treatment of the non-humans). There is some acknowledgement of commonality later in the book, but it just seems as though if one were to think about it, the humans are sort of bastards. The sea-people/Kersten/Bjor [...]

      Troll Mill is set 3 years after Troll Fell and Peer is living with Hilde's family. Although rid of his nasty uncles, Peer still has to work through some of the experiences and feelings he had while under his uncles' cruel reign. Besides that, he must also learn to find his place in the world while deciphering the mystery behind Bjorn and his wife's sudden disappearance. All of the characters - the loved and not so loved - are back in this one and readers enjoy more of the magical folklore of tro [...]

      I read TROLL FELL years ago and absolutely loved it, so it was a pleasure reading the second installment. This second book shows some emotional growth in Peer and no easy solutions for his quest to become independent and win the girl he crushes on. He's not ready for independence quite yet, and sometimes in life (but rarely in fiction) the boy doesn't get the girl. Sometimes the demons--or Uncle Baldurs--of our past still tower over us, without any easy fix. Sometimes a boy looks like an ungainl [...]

      Whew, Troll Mill really picks up on adventure and excitement! I think I might actually like it a teeny bit more than Troll Fell! In this continuing story, 3 years have passed and Peer and Hilde and now (dum dum dum!) teenagers! I haven’t been all that impressed with teen protagonists lately, but here, both characters capture the changes in behavior and feelings without being over-the-top or annoying. Very nice! And the sweet budding romance – perfect!Once again, a very engaging read! It seem [...]

      The book is about Peer trying to rebuild the mill in Troll Fell. His uncles used to own it but since they are gone, Peer is trying to set a new life in the mill. The setting is in Troll Fell and the main character is Peer. Peer's main external conflict is, him having to try to make a new life in the mill and to deal with all the trolls, lubbers, and Granny Green Teeth. Peer's main internal conflict is, him thinking about his evil uncles and fearing that they might come back to haunt him.During r [...]

      Well, this is the second book, but I read it anyway without reading the first one, Troll Fell. It was an easy-read book, although the setting was kinda dark for me. Troll Fell was a place I don't want to be in. Creepy, dark, and dangerous. At first half of the book, I was bored with the seal issue. The second half was pretty exciting though.New creatures were formulated. Yes, lubbers, the Nis, Seal people and Granny Greenteeth. If I read the first book, maybe I will understand more how they look [...]

    8. Jaime on said:

      Carrying on the story of the life of Peers and his adoptive family where Troll Fell left off, this book delves into slightly darker territory. The themes are edging close to a bit too mature for kids, however, by dealing with those themes from a kid's perspective, Langrish has managed to do two things.First, she's made the story challenging and still inviting for young readers, giving them things to think about that go beyond their everyday lives, and this is important for kids learning to navig [...]

      I really enjoyed this one. It was very fast paced. I will try to not have any spoilers. I just love how Katherine is able to blend childlike fantasy ideas with such darker happenings while keeping an ominous and anxious tone simultaneously. Mixing sometimes funny motivations behind why certain things are happening (like the want for blankets) with seriously much darker ones (like with who wants baby or even the sailors story).

    10. Sandra Martin on said:

      I know that this is a kids book, and I know that it is the second in the series and I have not read the first one, but it was an enjoyable quick read. It is everything that you would expect from a well put together piece of writing for children. It instantly captured my imagination and I hope that it will capture yours!For children with big imaginations and adults who are likewise minded (or at least that want to be).

    11. Shannon on said:

      Loved this whole series by Katherine Langrish There is 3 books in the series Troll Fell, Troll Mill and Troll Blood I would highly recommend you read them they are an awesome series when I read them I could not put them down the only problem is that there is only 3 books in the series there should have been heaps more I could not get my head out of he books and I have always got books on the go I am total bookworm and loved these books

    12. Karen on said:

      I learned some unique legends, myths, folklore (at least for me) from Vikings and some Native Americans. I haven't taken the time yet to check these myths for verification. I was introduced to the "Jenu" a North American "Snow Monster" (3rd book), Lubbers, Granny Greenteeth and a few more. I also learned more about trolls, house elves and seal people. This is a fast, fun read with lots of adventure.

    13. RedPaint Spilman on said:

      This book delves into the mythos of the descendants of early viking conquerers of England. It introduces us to a boy who is taken from a small village to work for his uncles in another after his father's death. The boy never feels like he fits in and is always an outsider, which is the feeling I had after reading it. I just never got enough of the culture surrounding the hero to understand the motivations of the supporting characters. Yet the story was original and moderately paced.

      Set three years later. The family's settled in with Peer as one of them. Now that he's older, he's developing feelings for the lovely Hilde who's always been by and on his side. Peer just wants to be grown and show how independent and self sufficient that he is to Hilde. Then, the dilemma of the story. Kersten, Bjorn's wife, runs at Peer with her baby and tells him to bring it to Bjorn. She runs off into the water and then the book starts to move.

    15. Anthony William on said:

      I read this book a few years ago - I received it as a Christmas present ages ago and kind of forgot about it. When I finally started reading I automatically fell in love with the story and thoroughly enjoyed the novel as a whole.I plan to read the 1st novel, and eventually the 3rd which is supposed to be fantastic!

    16. MJ on said:

      This is the sequel to Troll Fell. Peer is still trying to find his place with his new family—he makes shy advances to the daughter of the house but her eyes are set on someone older. Then a friend shoves his new baby girl into Peer’s arms and heads out to sea to retrieve his seal wife. What is Peer to do with a baby whom the trolls have their eyes on???

    17. Ryan on said:

      Troll Mill isn't so much a sequel as a continuation of the story from Troll Fell - and its a good story. There is a bit of coming-of-age - though it doesn't hit you in the face with it - and learning about one's passion and talent. The bad guys aren't completely bad and even trolls and humans have a bit in common.

    18. Meredith on said:

      Just as good (maybe better) than the first book. The story picks up 3 years or so after the first book ends, and even though the first book stands on its own really well, there's a lot of pay-off in this volume. I loved the different folklore and folk tales that Langrish incorporates into the story as well. I'm very excited for book 3!

    19. Avika on said:

      This book was really mysterious and unlke anyother book that i have ever read1 The names are so diffrent like some books will have twins names carey and mary but this book has Sigrid and Sigurd!Instead of your typical villans you have trolls! It was a wonderful story and the trilogy of troll mill is one of the best ones i have ever read!

    20. Chris The Story Reading Ape on said:

      I find these stories about Vikings, Trolls and Scandinavian Myths enjoyable, in any case, to paraphrase the founder of the Salvation Army, when asked why he was so keen on having his people form bands and sing, he said "Why should the Devil have all the best songs".Why should such good stories be only for YA's!

    21. Tiffany DuBeau on said:

      Exceptional follow up to the first book. Diving right into the third and final book once I get home. I love Katherine's descriptions; they are quirky and I have quite the vivid image of the farm, the mill, the beach, troll fell, the fields, everything. Wish there was some concept art out there or a movie!

    22. Janet on said:

      I listened to this book on audio tape during many tedious car journeys to and from work. A great children's book, really scary in bits. Andrew Sachs reads it all and his version of the troll prince telling a fairy story makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Brilliant!

    23. David on said:

      There is a lovely mix of fantasy at mystery here. I love the atmosphere of the story and the edge-of-the-world place in which it is set. Good characters and extremely well-written prose makes for an engaging read.

    24. Kate on said:

      A sequel I actually liked! All I can say is Awesome Job Katherine! Once again, the characters and background come alive through the writing. Love the mythological characters that are interweaved amongst the humans.

    25. Brian on said:

      A great world. The suspense is electrifying (perhaps a bit too close to horror for younger readers, so I'd recommend this for older elementary reader and the not-easily-frightened crew). The ending was a bit of a let-down for me, but it ties up all the loose ends (a bit too easily for my liking).

    26. J. Else on said:

      I thought this book was constant movement with regards to the characters and plot. Very exciting tale and hard to put down. This book surpassed Troll Fell. Excellent plot weaving and character development.

    27. Pauline Rouse on said:

      I saw this book at the library, and realized it probably hadn't been checked out in a while, due to it's appearances. with that thought in mind, i decided to give it a chance. And my conclusive review would be that everyone should read this book! It was funny, romantic, and absolutely fantastic!

    28. Greta on said:

      This is the second book in the Troll Trilogy. I liked it. Peer is a hero once again.
