Series: Troll King
The trolls of Bonespittle aren't pretty, and centuries of bad press have given them a rep for meanness. But the truth is that they are merely poor serfs - underlings to the ogres, ghouls, and sorcerers who wield power. Once upon a time, the trolls were great warriors, respected throughout the land. But then they were enslaved by a power-hungry king, and the other creatures who live across the Great Chasm. Enter Rollo, a handsome young troll who is surprised when Stygius Rex, Bonespittle's ruler, passes through his village recruiting trolls to construct a bridge across the Chasm. Rollo wants to sign on - but is he prepared for what lies beyond?
