THE LAND OF THE SILVER APPLES continues the saga begun in THE SEA OF TROLLS. It is Britain, 790 A.D. Young Jack, a bard-in-training, learns that his little sister, Lucy, so different from the rest of the family, is actually a changeling and his real sister is living with the hobgoblins. Lucy disappears during an exorcism, and Jack descends into the out-of-time Land of the Silver Apples to rescue her and his lost sister. Gerard Doyle gives an engrossing narration. He gives voice to a hobgoblin king, kelpies, yarthkins, elves, and other assorted creatures, human and magical. He maintains a balance between nail-biting action and the tangled mix of pagan and Christian traditions that simmered in eighth-century Britain.
