Overview

If Laura Ingalls had been an ogre and her neighbors trolls, HAMLET THRIVING might have been her story. But the characters of this fantasy novel live in the highland Range, not on a prairie. They belong to races that had been mortal enemies for millennia. The rich textures of their differences, from tusks to dreadlocks and fuzzy feet, bring them together as they battle the harsh living in the high peaks, and the prejudice that seeps in from outside�still lingers in their own hearts.

In this sequel to EXPIRING COVENANT, the second eccentric generation is making its place in the valley, while the bulls of the first continue to snarl at their neighbors over the checkerboard, and the hens compete to make up the best lies during their quilting bees.

The chapters weave an overlapping mosaic of tolerance, friendship, love, tragedy, personal growth, and whimsy from the perspective of each unique character�s point of view, like the gruff-talking dwarf who can�t hide his enormous heart, the precocious ogreling who annoys and entertains the entire valley with his antics, troll Eina who sees every hamlet resident as hers to protect with an iron fist, Iza, conflicted by her role as dominating queen dragon and loving companion to her bonded human friend.
