Overview

Fighting against a nightmare pales beside fighting for a dream.

An accursed prince and her own longing for music challenge Lorelin to do both.

But tradition and a hidden foe stand squarely in her way.

How do you make dreams real when vision fails, allies undermine you, and all roads toward hope twist awry?

Can courage, honor, and loyalty prevail against a troll-witch's potent curse?

Set within her enchanted North-lands, J.M. Ney-Grimm's new take on an old Norse folk tale pits distorted malice against inner wisdom and grit.

Praise for Troll-magic

"...Troll-magic has a certain poetic style I've yet to come across elsewhere. Descriptions are...evocative, characters are natural and complex..." - GoodReads review

"This is the kind of book that you keep thinking about... All through the day you will find yourself hoping for just a few minutes to pick it up again. Loosely based on a familiar folk tale, the world depicted is magical, but the people are very real." - Smashwords review

"Troll-magic was a fun read... This story mixes adventure, romance, life lessons and, of course, magic. J.M. Ney-Grimm has created a fascinating new world. Her detailed descriptions and colourful writing style bring the world of Silmaren and the Norse-lands right off the page and into life." - Amazon review

"I really liked this book. Anyone who is familiar with the fairy tale this book is based on will recognize the basic plot, but there are some intriguing twists added. The concept of troll-magic is well done... I am looking forward to reading other [stories] by this author." - GoodReads review

"Her work compares favorably with Robin McKinley and Patricia McKillip... if you're looking for an intelligent, fun and interesting read, I highly recommend this book." - Amazon review
