I absoutely loved this book.By looking at it, I would have never chose to read it, but Im big and fantasy and epic so my co- worker for me as a christmas gift. For the longest time I wouldnt read it, and one day i didnt have nothing to read and picked it up that morning, and finished it that night. LOL. I've read it 14 going on 15 times now, i loved how everything seemed so real, like this could happen to, you know, and how the characters where so different but connected, and had theyre own lives. It's hard to explain. LOL.

This book is at the top of my all-time favorites list. The storyline blends the stark gritty side of fantasy tales seamlessly with an ultra realistic life of a family. It is provocative and believable and a book that would make a great movie... the rift war saga as well! Please Raymond, get these movies made!

I read this book after the riftwar saga and I was simply blown away. It is my absolute favorite of all of Feist's works, and I believe that it is his best. He develops the characters extremely well, and he creates such a strong community that it makes the story believable. The basis is that a family, a father, a mother, two twin nine-year-old sons, and a college-aged daughter from the father's first marriage, move from California to upstate New York. They begin the process of joining the community there, the boys make new friends before school begins, they explore their new, relatively rural, property. However, there are things on this farm that are not quite . . . normal. The twins are the most sensitive to it since they are children, but they instinctively know that when they walk across "troll bridge", they can't run, or look back. Strange things start happening, interspersed with the realities of the family's lives. Ultimately, Feist brings it to a very well-developed climax, and there are parts that are horrifically frightening, both in their evolution, and in their nature. It is a story about the "other" in what feels like such a safe and normal place. That "other" is both exciting and terrifying, and it is chilling when the characters interact with things that they know to be "wrong", especially when those interactions are paired with such genuinely human emotions as the characters express in this book.
