Evil and danger rumbles under the earth. Follow the adventures of a group of contemporary teenagers who discover that their town, and ultimately the entire world, is under attack by fierce creatures from deep beneath the earth. These creatures were known to the earliest humans as trolls or goblins, but they are much more dangerous than their fairy-tale versions. The teens make unlikely allies along the way, including a half-man, half-troll, as well as some legendary constellations that quite literally come to life. The young heroes will also discover their own untapped celestial abilities in an epic battle between good versus evil.
A thrilling, suspenseful fantasy novel
Set in an ordinary small town, a group of kids ban together to fight off mythical creatures
The Troll Hunters by Michael Dahl is an adventurous story about a group of kids that have to save the world from trolls. It starts on the night of the meteor shower. From the beginning everything seemed kinda off. That was just the beginning. Four kids from the town of Zion Falls discover they have the power to stop the trolls from taking over the world.
This book is filled with some very interesting characters. Dahl did a great job with keeping up suspense and suspicion. The book has high adventure and action. It also has great illustrations that complement the story. I think this book would be great for kids that like a lot of action. It has some violence, but it's not overly done. This book would be great for both boys and girls, but I think boys would really like it.
A note of caution:for parents: a few characters in this book died. This might disturb some kids.
