The Sea of Trolls is a fantasy novel for children, written by American author Nancy Farmer and published by Atheneum in 2004. It inaugurated the unofficially titled Sea of Trolls series, which Farmer continued in 2007 and 2009. The Sea of Trolls is set in Anglo-Saxon England, Scandinavia, and the mythical realm of Jotunheim.

Sea of Trolls - 01. Nancy Farmer. Frith Half-Troll: A shape-shifter; daughter of the Mountain Queen and an unknown human; wife of Ivar the Boneless. Frothi: Frith’s sister; a shape-shifter; mother of Grendel. Grendel: A monster; his father was an ogre.

The Sea of Trolls book. 793; Jack and his sister have been kidnapped. The best historical fiction books, in my opinion, pack in period detail but do it so deftly that by the time you're done, you're well informed on the time period but you don't feel like you sat through a history lesson. Sea of Trolls excels at this. Saxon England and Viking Norway are both recreated with astonishing detail that manages to avoid bogging down the story.

Jack was eleven when the berserkers loomed out of the fog and nabbed him. "It seems that things are stirring across the water," the Bard had warned. "Ships are being built, swords are being forged." "Is that bad?" Jack had asked, for his Saxon village had never before seen berserkers. "Of course. People don't make ships and swords unless they intend to use them." The year is A.D. 793. In the next months, Jack and his little sister, Lucy, are enslaved by Olaf One-Brow and his fierce young shipmate, Thorgil. With a crow named Bold Heart for mysterious company, they are swept up into an adventure-quest in the spirit of The Lord of the Rings. Award-winner Nancy Farmer has never told a richer, funnier tale, nor offered more timeless encouragement to young seekers than "Just say no to pillaging."

This is one of those rare books that you look forward all day to reading in the evening, and when you're getting close to the finish, you wish it had at least twice as many pages. Fortunately, there are two more excellent entries in this trilogy, and each of those is just as good as the first. If you love Norse mythology and are fond of marauding Northmen, trolls, goblins, elves, and dragons, then these books are a particular treat. This is not kid stuff, however—there are occasional strong scenes of violence and killing (especially in the first book), and while they're not so graphic as to earn the trilogy a PG-13 rating, the intended audience is clearly young adults and up.

As evidenced by the bibliography at the end of the book, the author thoroughly researched the period and setting. Consequently, she is able to immerse the reader in a vibrant world rich in authentic details and populated with an abundance of fascinating characters full of charm, eccentricities, flaws, and quirks. While you'll definitely come to love or hate some of these people more than others, the philosophical undercurrent woven into the tale never presents any of them—or their actions—as simply good or evil. A valuable lesson to learn, or be reminded of, for young and older adults alike.

This is a great series--my son and I both really enjoyed it. A good story and a very good sense of the historical world the characters live in, but the best part about it is the complicated relationships: the hero loves his sister even though she never really stops being a brat, he becomes close to the Vikings and appreciates their good qualities even though he knows they're still violent and can be very cruel. Gives kids a lot to think about as well as a good story.

This was a really good book! My husband and I went for a day trip to Grand Marais, MN and we came across this cute book store called Drury Lane. He found this book for me and I bought it on my Kindle when we got home. It was a fun fantasy story full of adventure and humor and never a dull moment. Jack is called to be The Bard's apprentice, so he is taken under his wing to learn the trade. I laughed just reading the cast of characters, so many great ones and not all human. Pick this one up and give it a try! I am an adult and I enjoyed it very much!

As a middle school language arts teacher, I am always looking for books that boys will enjoy, as they are often more reluctant to read than girls. This story of a young boy captured by berserkers, moves quickly enough to keep boys engaged, but I think has enough fairy tale elements in it to appeal to girls as well.
This book may not be suitable for students younger than sixth grade, since the descriptions of Viking raids are quite graphic. The story also invites students to grapple with what is true about life and death, as Jack (the protagonist) was raised as a Christian and must measure what he believes against Viking tales of Valhalla. This is definitely a worthwhile read and is ultimately life affirming.

The characters are engaging and complete. The story is rich and well defined. Hard to put down or if audio hard to turn off. Not just for kids.

I ordered this book for my 6th grader to do a book report for language class. Normally I select and purchase the books well in advance, but this time I was late. I was surprised and delighted at the speed at which we received the book, and with regular mail at that. We could not have asked for faster delivery. The book was in excellent condition. He thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I couldn't get him to put it down to go to bed. The theme and characters were familiar to him,from his electronic games and from playing World of Warcraft (probably explains why he was so engrossed). Needless to say, he aced the book report. Thank you Amazon for getting the book to us so quickly and for having products at such reasonable prices.

The title of the first book impelled me to try it, and I am quite happy I did. Farmer is an inventive and developed writer. Nothing too predictable, nor was there anything that pulled me out of the story, and there's soooo many stories I've recently read that have done that. I quite enjoyed the main characters and their adventures.
