Publisher's Summary

"You are food. Those muscles you flex to walk, lift, and talk? They're patties of meat topped with chewy tendon. That skin you've paid so much attention to in mirrors? It's delicious to the right tongues, a casserole of succulent tissue. And those bones that give you the strength to make your way in the world? They rattle between teeth as the marrow is sucked down slobbering throats. These facts are unpleasant but useful. There are things out there, you see, that don't cower in holes to be captured by us and cooked over our fires. These things have their own ways of trapping their kills, their own fires, their own appetites."

Jim Sturges is your typical teen in suburban San Bernardino - one with an embarrassingly overprotective dad, a best friend named Tubby who shares his hatred of all things torturous (like gym class), and a crush on a girl who doesn't know he exists. But everything changes for Jim when a 45-year-old mystery resurfaces, threatening the lives of everyone in his seemingly sleepy town. Soon Jim has to team up with a band of unlikely (and some unhuman) heroes to battle the monsters he never knew existed.

What the Critics Say

"Narrator Kirby Heyborne works his vocal magic in a story that is, by turns, amusing and blood curdling.... Heyborne is in his element as he creates the garbled language and horrifying growls and howls of the fearsome trolls. He’s equally at home voicing teens and adults, particularly the stuttering local sheriff." (AudioFile)

    "Not as good as the cartoon, but still awesome."

    I very much enjoyed this book. The narrator kind of bugged me, but the story was a ton of fun. It was very interesting to see the changes between the book and the cartoon. While I do feel the cartoon is (ironically) better, it is fun to compare the differences between the two. This one is much more like a live-action movie, with much more grit, blood and true monsters. It's fun, and I recommend it.

    Story
    "Paid by the word, are we?"

    The extreme verbosity got tiresome to the point of tedious about 1/3 of the way in. It was clever at first, but to hear such lengthy and overly-poetic descriptions of purposefully disgusting details when the reader just wants to hear the story move forward, that was too much.

    It felt like the authors (and I respect del Toro immensely for his cinematic works) were trying too hard to be literary, trying too hard to be impressive. And just like when someone tries too hard to be funny, it seldom works out well.

    As much as I enjoyed the Netflix animated series (which is almost NOTHING like this book,) I actually had to stop this book and leave it as it rounded the halfway point and showed no signs of getting better.

    (Skipping ahead to hear little bits and pieces of the writing style in later chapters, the tone sounded exactly the same as the first. This kind of writing leaves the work as a whole, flat, monochrome, motionless.)

    I'm afraid I couldn't recommend this book to anyone except those who simply enjoy reading pages upon pages of oh-so-clever descriptions of offal, character components, and detritus.

    "a rare case"

    this book was hard to listen to. i watched the Troll Hunters series on Netflix and really liked it. the charictors the villians and the magical adventure. i figured if the series was good the book must be excellent. i was wrong the main charictor was whiney and annoying the story wasnt really holding my intrest and alot of the aspects of the series that i like just where not there. i call this a rare case of the show being superior to the source material.

    "overall not impressed"

    Struggled to finish it. I watched the Netflix series based on this book and loved it. Figured I'd give the book a try. In my own opinion it seemed like the most basic, stripped down, hero's quest typically found in pre-teen fantasy books. Story seemed slow at first and then rushed the second half. Not impressed with character development either, seemed like same cliche characters from every other stereo typical pre-teen book. My wife also couldn't stand me listening to it because the reader would yell aaaargh!!!'s name. I know it has the exclamation points but it really messes with over all flow over delivery. I honestly wouldn't recommend the book instead would recommend a slight addiction to the Netflix series.

    "Good Story "

    I enjoyed the book. I feel it was made better by the narrator. I do have to admit I enjoyed watching the kids show with my daughter a little more. The development of the characters was good and the storyline was good but it leaves you with several questions.

    "Awesome performance!"

    Elementary to middle school level enjoyment. Kirby Heybourne was awesome as narrator. He's very enjoyable to listen to.

    "Troll spotting"

    Story has its merits but moves a little slowly. Clare was a great add, would love to have seen more from her. Some of the descriptions went on and on and slowed the momentum of the story. Good wrap up at the end, and lots of closure to pieces I feared would have been forgotten. The little girl for example, having her and her father help carry the body of the she troll was a nice touch.

    Blind listener reading everything, especially mystery/thrillers and sf&f. Restricted to audio so picky where credits spent. #BooksRule

    "Unexpectedly Excellent"

    So fun and entertaining, no reservations... I was dubious, but was quickly won over w/ the flippant humor, as well as the impressively conceived yarn;) Usually not a fan of the genre in general, but this one makes me reconsider that opinion... Reminded me a bit of John Connoly's Samuel Johnson/Biddlecombe books - The Gates, The Infernals, and The Creeps... Similar use of humor w/ the slightly gothic setting/mood... Silly - yes fantastical - yes worth a read - no question... I read it in one sitting w/ a slight break for sleep... Certainly worth the credit... The only negative, and it's a small one, is the the narrator is smidge slow, but played well at 1.25x... Go for it, you'll thank me...
