This is the dramatic and gripping conclusion to Katherine Langrish's highly-acclaimed "Troll" trilogy. When seafaring traders, Gunnar, and his sword-wiedling son, Harald Silkenhair, land in Trollsvik, looking for crew to join their journey to "Vinland" (North America), Hilde is desperate to join the ship. She begs her parents to let her go as Gunnar's wife Astrid's companion, and when Peer agrees to go and look after her, her parents reluctantly agree. But Gunnar and Harald are dangerous men. Harald has killed a man, and Gunnar has been cursed and is losing his wits in fear that the dead man's ghost is following him. Harald has an uncontrollable, raging temper, and a perilous rivalry develops between he and Peer. By the time they finally reach the shores of Vinland, the settlement is looking less of an attractive proposition. And that's before they meet the "Skraelings" (the Native American people) and the terrifying Jenu - the cannibal giant with the heart of ice...Action-packed, suspense-fuelled and with a wonderful cast of characters, "Troll Blood" is a truly rip-roaring read.
