The Sea of Trolls trilogy is refreshing change from the typical teenage books. The plot is well developed, and the conflicts are interesting and atypical. The main characters are likeable and the relationships between them provide more interesting aspects to the story. All of this being said, at times the book seemed rushed. The build up to a climactic point would be good, but then the actual resolution of the problem would be too short, maybe even a paragraph. Nevertheless, I would recommend this book to young adult readers and adult readers alike. The book is straightforward but not too simple, and does have a very deep theme about life. Jack's inward thoughts may have been my favorite part of this book. I found his ponderings over magic, Christianity, and what is morally correct very thought-provoking. With all of these things added together, this book is very well-written and developed, and despite rushing through some of the climactic action scenes, a highly recommended piece of literature.

The first book was a little bit slow, but I got into this book very quickly and am now on the third one, which is already exciting on the thirtieth page. If you like fantasy this is a great series, I highly recommend it. -Casey

Jack, the Bard&rsquo;s apprentice, sets off on a rescue quest when his sister Lucy is kidnapped by Elves. His companions are an unreliable slave/rightful-heir-to-the-throne and a recently freed girl-slave who worships the ground Jack walks on. They meet many magical creatures, re-discover some old friends, and have lots of exciting adventures along the way. I thought this was an excellent sequel to Sea of Trolls. It expanded the mythology of the land while developing the characters already introduced in the first book. I really appreciated the way Farmer handled the three religions that were represented by her characters in this 790AD Britain-based world. She showed the power and beauty of the Pagans as well as the Christians and subtly made the point that they all got their believers where they needed to go&mdash;but she did this without forcing the point or lecturing, which is the sign of excellent story-telling! My only quibble about this book is that most of the major plot threads were completed by page 400, leaving 100 pages for the final (and least pressing) plot thread. This is why the book got 4 instead of 5 stars.

The Sea of Trolls was such a complete story that I questioned whether Silver Apples was a good idea. I read Silver Apples all in one sitting because of how enjoyable it was. I am of the opinion that Silver Apples should have won the Newberry award like Sea of Trolls.
