Review: Trollhunters




In San Bernardino, California, children are going missing.

The townspeople don't believe the rumours of trolls, but fifteen-year-old Jim Jnr knows that they're a very real threat. At night, is anyone safe?

TROLLHUNTERS is a funny, gruesome and undeniably del Toro-esque adventure perfect for teen readers and fans of Pan's Labyrinth.

This is one of these reviews that are difficult to write.  The writing is first rate and the dialogue rather amusing.   I can easily see this book being made into a movie with very little changes but the cinematic style of the writing just left me cold.  

Now I do believe that TROLLHUNTERS would really catch the attention of its intended audience which is young adults, especially boys between eight to thirteen.  It is full of adventure and close calls that will take them on a wild ride from the very start to the conclusion.
