The mysteries of the seal people, selkies, are revealed in this second book by Langrish, which continues the story begun in TROLL FELL. As baby Ran is thrust into Peer Ulfsson's arms, he encounters the harsh realities of family life and his own questions about his place in the human world. As the high adventure unfolds deep in Troll Mountain, Andrew Sachs sets a brisk pace and brings to life a multitude of characters loosely based on Scandinavian folklore. The water dripping from all of Granny Greenteeth's pores is palpable, as are the slime of the lubbers and the snuffling of the troll maiden. Each character--Peer and Hilde, Gudrun and Ralf, Bjorn and Kersten--is distinct. Let yourself be swept into this recording! A.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
