Description

Sixteen-year-old Jennifer Strange and her sidekick and fellow Orphan Tiger Prawns have been driven to the tip of the UnUnited Kingdoms - Cornwall - by the invasion of the Trolls. Their one defence is a six-foot-wide trench full of buttons, something which the Trolls find unaccountably terrifying (it's their clickiness).

Reviewed on 31st October 2021

The fourth and final entry in the Last Dragonslayer series finds Jennifer Strange and her friends forced to retreat to Cornwall as the Ununited Kingdoms are invaded by an astonishing volume of trolls.

It’s an excellent and fitting end to the series, pulling the story in new directions, and exploring more of the unusual ideas that Fforde’s mind is known for coming up with.

There are some moments where I just laughed out loud and had to read the page again and again to drink in what Fforde had dared to do, and then flow it neatly into the narrative.

My only thought is that I probably should have re-read the series before this book, just to bring everything back to the forefront of my mind.
