"You are food. Those muscles you flex to walk, lift, and talk? They're patties of meat topped with chewy tendon. That skin you've paid so much attention to in mirrors? It's delicious to the right tongues, a casserole of succulent tissue. And those bones that give you the strength to make your way in the world? They rattle between teeth as the marrow is sucked down slobbering throats. These facts are unpleasant but useful. There are things out there, you see, that don't cower in holes to be captured by us and cooked over our fires. These things have their own ways of trapping their kills, their own fires, their own appetites." Jim Sturges is your typical teen in suburban San Bernardino-one with an embarrassingly overprotective dad, a best friend named "Tubby" who shares his hatred of all things torturous (like gym class), and a crush on a girl who doesn't know he exists. But everything changes for Jim when a 45-year old mystery resurfaces, threatening the lives of everyone in his seemingly sleepy town. Soon Jim has to team up with a band of unlikely (and some un-human) heroes to battle the monsters he never knew existed

"Narrator Kirby Heyborne works his vocal magic in a story that is, by turns, amusing and blood curdling. Centering on missing children and, in particular, the boys in one family, the book opens with a gruesome depiction of the human-eating habits of trolls, and goes on to scare the wits out of listeners with its fierce battles between teens and the most disgusting troll creatures. Heyborne is in his element as he creates the garbled language and horrifying growls and howls of the fearsome trolls. He's equally at home voicing teens and adults, particularly the stuttering local sheriff. The story itself is a little convoluted and suffers from some heavy-handed passages, but Heyborne keeps it moving along with his expert pacing and inflection. Share this with Rick Riordan fans. S.G.
