It is a family friendly action fable. Young Raf travels to Troll Mountain in search of a magical elixir to save his sister and his tribe - a journey that others before him have tried and failed. An action packed hero’s quest TM’s major themes are questioning those in authority, social hierarchies, challenging conventional wisdom, overcoming adversity, and coming of age.
There could be some debate as to whether TM is specifically a Young Adults book or just a typically fast paced Matthew Reilly action novel compressed to its simplest elements. While lacking in length there is still enough background in the story’s development to give it the appropriate context.
Either way it is a quick and enjoyable read where you don’t have to think to much - just sit back and enjoy the ride.
“Troll Mountain” gets 3.5 bottles of magical elixir out of 5.
So, when this one came out, even though it is not of the genre I usually read, I went for it.
And I am glad I did. This is a great book, with a good story, great characters and nice settings. A hero's quest to fight the odds to save his sister.
And as always, there is a moral message in this book.
While I loved the Scarecrow series, the level of violence in the books means that they are not really suitable for younger teenagers. This book has all the action without the sometimes graphic violence of the scarecrow books.
Get this one for your teenagers for Christmas - you might need to get the Kindle edition if they are so technology enabled that they don't know how to use a book!
I can see this one as a movie. What a ride it will be too.
Though a quick read, it was very enjoyable and I'm very pleased with myself for waiting for the completed novel. I kept checking back to see when the whole thing would be released, and wondering if I could hold out. I'm glad I did due to the length and the fluidity it provided.
I loved the wisdom the young man learned throughout his journey. I think what he learned can be applied to life as we know it, not just Raf's. The descriptions were well thought out, and I enjoyed the drawings with the layouts of different areas.
I recommend this book to readers who want a fun break!!
IMHO Matthew Reilly excels in the scarecrow series, jack west series, temple. Was not that impressed with tournament and hover car racer. Though I have read all those books just this summer....
Still looking forward to his new upcoming zoo of china book though. And hope he will extend the scarecrow and jack west series or maybe even temple....

This has not disappointed me even though I did not even look up the storyline.
This is more of a children's book than anything but even so I thoroughly enjoyed it. Trolls, opposing tribes, a hint of lord of the rings, adventurous youth with daring do.
Basically a tribal system has the hero of the day as a manual labour grunt, denied access to the upper echelons by birth.
Disease strikes and the hero goes looking for the cure from the trolls who like to eat people by the way.
Meets up with sidekicks and ................... I do not want to spoil the book do I?
Thats the scene set for the book and a lot more that I knew before I started it.
This is a brilliant book for reading to and with imaginative children.
Well worth buying. Well worth the read.
