Literature: The Sea of Trolls
aka: Sea Of Trolls
A novel by Nancy Farmer combining historical fiction with fantasy.

Jack is a Bard's apprentice living in a village on the coast of England in The Low Middle Ages. One day 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.

Despite the title, no apparent connection to 4Chan and Something Awful.
