The story is unique and very imaginative. The way the author wrote the story with a combination of comedy, fantasy and mystery. I also found certain parts really funny and I liked the fantasy elements. I also like how the troll in the story isn’t one dimensional and has a personality. One part of him is like a devious child who like getting into trouble but another side of him is gentle and protective. I give the story four stars and would recommend it to anyone.
