Book review of island of the blessed

Island of the blessed by Nancy Farmer

4 Stars out of 5 Stars
I would not have read this book, or book 2 of this series if my school library hadn't gotten them, as I originally thought that the sea of trolls wasn't part of a series. Anyways, I liked this book because they went to places that they hadn't gone before, and met new enemies that they had to battle. More about the mermaid is revealed, and what happened to her  
I would recommend the book to people who've read other books in this series, and people that like magic
Read from 2/13-3/7/14
Date when I checked out the book from my school library : 2/12/14
Length of book: 468 pages
Other Books I have reviewed from the Author :
The land of the silver apples
About the author : Nancy Farmer has written three Newbery Honor Books: The Ear the Eye and the Arm; A Girl Named Disaster; and The House of the Scorpion, which, in 2002, also won the National Book Award. Other books include Do You Know Me, The Warm Place, the Trolls trilogy, three picture books for young children and an adult novel, A New Year's Tale. Nancy Farmer grew up on the Arizona-Mexico border and lives with her family in Arizona.
