Troll by Ashley C. Harris is as brilliant as it is confusing and I had a hard time reading it. The different POV and the complexity of the storyline need your full attention. This Book is not your average read a few pages â and than pick it up some days later to read another few pages â kind of book. It needs to be read with full attention and as constantly as possible, otherwise you might loose your way amongst the characters and the plot. Also â again â I have to point out â that I do not appreciate it very much to only find out at the end that there will be a sequel as in â¦ THIS IS TOTALLY NOT A STANDALONE novelâ¦ I was left out hanging far too often by authors who still keep me waiting for sequels that I read the first parts of years ago. Leaving those points aside and coming back to the story I have to say that it is one of the most intriguing storyâs in that line of plot I have read in a long time. The writing is is complex and well developed and I am sure that there will be many lovers for this book. The reader is introduced to a world of trolls that I believe has not been shown to any readers in that way and there is just enough mystery in this book to keep the reader constantly interested. And yes â¦ of cause this book will be on my âwaiting for the sequelsâ pile and I hope it will not take that long for the next book to come out â¦..
