Paperback/Suburban Fantasy: The cover of this book was the buying point for me. I like graphic novels and I really wanted to like this one more. However, I hope since I also have the third book in my library, that this book is like a TV pilot and the characters will get stronger and Willow will not settle. There were problems with the book as far as my confusion with the villain's motive and the history behind it. The book did make up for it in the character of Willow. Our heroine is a spunky little lass who narrates the book in first person. She is a bit of a doormat when it comes to her family. I am interested in reading book two to see the consequences of some of Willow decision.

Once upon a time the creatures of myths and legends (except vampires and shapeshifters) populated the land alongside of cavemen. Humans took over the land of the eldritch killing what they couldn't understand. It became obvious that though was some cross breeding between species, they could not coexist so on the Day of Unity, an incredible degree of power caused the realm to split with a barrier to keep the two earths apart. Graphic young adult writer and artist Willow "Willey" Tate is a descendent of the half-breeds. She draws a troll Fafhrd who comes to life, but no one can see him except her. People see the troll as trolley, tree and a bus. British Agent Grant of DUE (Department of Unexplained Events) explains to her she is a descendant of a half-breed like many of the people of Peaumkack Harbor in the Hamptons; and that she is to be instrumental in finding a young child Nicky stolen from the town by a megalomaniac bent on world domination. The villain needs Willey for his plan to succeed; she reluctantly agrees as an innocent child is involved who somehow is linked to her troll. This is a fun zany romantic Hamptons fantasy with the lead couple (Willey and Grant) heating up the sheets with enough energy to keep Long island warm in the winter. There is plenty of action off the sheets too as Willey confronts one confrontation after another. However, who makes the tale fantastic by stealing the show is Fafhrd, a ten foot troll who though an illegal alien is child-like except when it comes to protecting his creator. The villain does not make an in person appearance until the climax, but his malevolence oozes throughout the exciting story line as the suspense builds to a final confrontation. Harriet Klausner

Lite weight book. Limited scope for action.
