      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 now and told terrible stories about fairies, elves, 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. Stygius is recruiting trolls to construct a bridge to span the Chasm. Rollo wants to sign on for the task -- but is he prepared for what really lies beyond the realm of the trolls?
