The boy twisted like a cat, there was a swirl of cloak and a rasping sound. Something flashed into the air - a long steel sword .... Peer and Hilde are thirsty for adventure, so when a Viking longship docks in their village, they decide to set sail for Vinland - a mysterious place far across the perilous sea. But are the ship's captain and his sword-wielding son really honest sailors? And will Peer and Hilde ever return? The third thrilling book in the Troll Fell saga.

About the Author:

Katherine Langrish is the author of Troll Fell, a New York Public Library "One Hundred Titles for Reading and Sharing" book; Troll Mill, a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age; and Troll Blood. She grew up in the Yorkshire Dales, the hill country of northern England. She graduated with an honors degree in English from the University of London and has been writing stories for most of her life. Katherine currently lives in England with her husband and two daughters.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5–8—In the final volume in the trilogy, Peer and his friend Hilde join Vikings raiders Gunnar Ingolfsson and his son Harald Silkenhair, Gunnar's young wife, and their crew aboard a longship bound for Vinland. Eventually the travelers reach land, returning to Gunnar's previously established settlement. When Peer discovers the evidence of a murder, relations with the ruthless Vikings begin to deteriorate. After a near-deadly confrontation with Harald, Peer flees and finds refuge with a civilization based on the Native American Mi'kmaq people. They help him to recover and treat him with kindness. When it's discovered that Harald has cold-bloodedly murdered two of their warriors, the tribe is bent on revenge. Peer must find a way to free Hilde from the Vikings and shield her from the violence to come. Langrish skillfully weaves Norse and Native American mythology among the fantasy and adventure elements. Mythical creatures and mystical elements abound, and magic is an everyday part of the characters' existence. Peer and Hilde are now teenagers, and their changing relationship—from friendship to romance—is believably depicted. Fans of the first two books will enjoy this one.—Ginny Collier, Dekalb County Public Library, Decatur, GA

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The dramatic and gripping conclusion to Katherine Langrish's highly-acclaimed TROLL trilogy. When seafaring traders, Gunnar, and his sword-wielding 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 a heart of ice. Action-packed, suspense-fuelled and with a wonderful cast of characters, Troll Blood is a truly rip-roaring read. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780007214884
