My review: Bilwok: Dawn of the Trolls by George Anthon Kibbie
This was a compelling story. I was not sure where it was going and I found myself not wanting to put down the book. I hope there is going to be another story and soon.
The setting is in the future and man is no more the dominate race. This community of Trolls are called Tennevollen and is hidden from man.
Bilwok belongs to a gang of troll boys that like to challenge themselves with daring stunts and keep getting in trouble, do poorly in school. One day he decides to change doing well in school, studying the law.
Wardoll is leader of the Geyser Club. He likes thinking of stunts for the gang and daring the others to follow him. His best friend is Bilwok until he starts to change. Then he turns against him.
Bilwok is bringing change the seer says wither it be good or bad. It is coming. His father is the Chief of Police and head enforcer. His Grandfather on his mother's side is Chief Elder.
I found myself rooting against the humans. I was on the side of the Trolls.
This is a coming of age story, science fiction, plenty of drama. It is a clean read that anybody can enjoy and learn from. About choices what you want to be a trouble maker or someone who stands up for others.
