Narrator Kirby Heyborne works his vocal magic in a story that is, by turns, amusing and bloodcurdling. Centering on missing children, particularly the boys in one family, the book opens with a gruesome depiction of the human-eating habits of trolls, and goes on to scare the wits out of listeners with its fierce battles between teens and the most disgusting troll creatures. Heyborne is in his element as he creates the garbled language and horrifying growls and howls of the fearsome trolls. He’s equally at home voicing teens and adults, particularly the stuttering local sheriff. The story itself is a little convoluted and suffers from some heavy-handed passages, but Heyborne keeps it moving along with his expert pacing and inflection. Share this with Rick Riordan fans. S.G.
