Story Summary

Anders had always believed that his father was killed by the trolls. But when he arrives home to find his mother mysteriously missing and a baby troll in her closet, he begins an adventure which ends in the discovery that his father had been killed by the trollwatch, not the trolls and that his mother is a friend of the trolls, helping them in their fight against enslavement in the human mines.
