What is Fantasy Creature Friday? It’s a discussion where I will talk about a particular creature every week. And what book or book series I think of when that creature is mentioned. At the end of the post, you will also get to link up your own fantasy creature book reviews and discussions for others to wander through.
Thanks to Anya at On Star Ships And Dragon Wings for letting me borrow her ‘link your blog’ idea. She does a giveaway every Friday where you can win ARC’s and link up your reviews/discussions/giveaways. You should totally check it out after you’re done here!

Trolls usually live in caves, on isolated mountains. They live in small family units, and are rarely helpful to humans. Depending on where they live, trolls are greatly varied. The ones you hear about the most often, are the ugly and stupid ones. There are also accounts of trolls that look much more like humans, and are smart.
It is widely believed that if a troll is exposed to sunlight, it will turn to stone. Thus, they are mostly nocturnal. Some of the ugly, stupid ones are also man-eaters, but not all. They are very strong, and slower than humans.
I have read about trolls in The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkein, and From A High Tower by Mercedes Lackey.
Have you read a book with trolls in it? What is your favorite book that has a troll? (Don’t forget to link up any reviews you’ve done in the last week/coming week that had fantasy creatures in them!)
