Literature: The Sea of Trolls

aka: Sea Of Trolls
A novel by author Nancy Farmer combining historical fiction with fantasy about a Bard's apprentice living in a village on the coast of England in The Low Middle Ages. The said village is invaded by Vikings, who capture him as a slave. He survives captivity by demonstrating his recently-developed magical bard powers and making himself useful to the Vikings.

In the Norse town where he ends up, events transpire which lead him to accompanying several warriors on a quest into Jotunheim, the land of the Trolls.

Nancy Farmer later wrote two sequels, Land of the Silver Apples and The Islands of the Blessed.
