Zaria, an avid fairy tale reader, finds herself in a fairy tale dilemma. After her friend is missing, she confronts the troll she believes took him and began an extraordinary adventure to win his freedom. It was very well written, adventurous, and intriguing. I liked listening to the story, and the narrator did a great job. I rate it 3.5 Boundless stars. I liked it.

Synopsis- Zaria Fierce was not fierce. Or so she thought, that is, until a river troll kidnaps her best friend. Then she, pitted together with his other friends (one of whom is actually a changeling (a creature swapped for a look-alike human)), goes on an adventure up the river, into a world mixed with the modern world and the ancient myths of Scandinavia. What I Thought- This was a really good book with a great setting and cool plot line. I really liked how it didn’t hide that Zaria was adopted and she knew it . I also liked how her adoptive parents were nice. You don’t see that often in books (as an adopted kid, I like it when adoption is portrayed well). The characters and mythology are realistic, and the mythology was well explained, too. I like how Zaria tries her best to make do in a world she knew nothing about. There are some instances of d*** throughout the second half of the book that some parents may have issues with for younger kids. This was a good book and I will be looking for book 2. *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
