So Kath told me to try this one out. It was the series I was least interested in reading by the brief summary.

I was wrong.

This is a great series that sprang from Erik's mind like his other works. Something original and fun. Holly brings this book to life with her narration of the characters. Don't let the trolls turn you away, for the book will surprise you.
Fun, well written, no major problems with this story. One of the better examples of good urban fantasy lesfic. Recommend to everyone.

This book was riveting. I started it at six this morning and finished just after noon. The characters in this book really come to live, and Evangeline Kane is certainly a character to be reckoned with. She snotty, smart, sassy and quick thinking. I loved her humor, probably because it’s so similar to mine. The world Schubach has created in this new series is one very interesting. I’m left with so many questions after just the introduction to it, and I’m not sure those questions can be answered w ...more

"I am Evangeline Kane, Troll of the Roebling. This gateway is protected, defy me at your own peril! This is my bridge!"

Stories the solely focused or centers about Fairies/Gnomes/Trolls weren't really my thing but there's a saying, "don't knock it till you try it". I don't think I've read other novels with Faes aside from The Mortal Instrument and Iron Fey (which I unfortunately DNF) series so The Bridge would be setting the bar for me from now on on this genre.

This was a wonderful surprise. It was a whole new spin on 'Trolls'. Erik jumps in with both feet and starts running with this tale of a somewhat troubled girl in the big city. 'Doing the right thing' gets her mystically bound to a bridge between this world and the next. She goes from trashy friends, a nothing apartment, and a dead-end job, to money, new friends, and a surreal world of supernatural creatures threatening to overrun the physical world. The only thing standing between our world and ...more

“Okay, I’m super excited that I was finally able to get you guys to read an Erik Schubach book,” Sigrun says. “He’s been one of my favorite authors for a long time. I discovered him because as a Valkyrie myself I’m always on the lookout for a good Valkyrie novel. Though I think I prefer The Bridge series, Schubach’s Valkyrie Chronicles will always have a special place in my heart.”


“Since I started writing, I’ve only come across two series that I read and wished I’d come up with that idea

Please don't let the title or cover deter you as I almost did.

I really liked and enjoyed this book, and am soooooooo looking forward to the next installment. It was fast paced and covered a lot of of interesting (to me and quite possible to those who enjoy urban fantasy) subject matter.

I genuinely liked the major and minor characters. Aside from almost being scared away by the title/cover, I'm usually hesitant when a male author (previously unknown to me) writes a female protagonist who happens

I liked this book a lot. I'd been searching for sci-fi/fantasy books featuring queer women protagonists, and discovered this author has a lot of ongoing
series that fit the bill. I read this one first, and started (but do not know that I will finish) his "Asgard" series, which was written earlier.
Trolls is a nice adventure and easygoing read. The story is an interesting new take on a "reluctant hero" type of trope. I liked the characters a lot and am eager to read the next installment when it c

I enjoyed this book immensely. Both main and secondary characters were fun to get to know. Though Kane has her struggles with her new responsibilities she warms to the task of being the new Troll of the bridge and gains quite a few friends in the process as well as a possible love interest with Sharee better known as the Custodian. Looking forward to next installment.

Loved the book. The story was action packed. Loved how Kane struggled with becoming the Troll yet totally excepted it at the end. The storyline kept me interested throughout and I can't wait to read the next book.

I really enjoyed this book, I love the interesting take on Trolls and how Erik builds this world. He's a damn good world builder! It's a typical Erik novel, but I believe that this book and this series is his best world for the personalities he writes so often. Now, while I stand by my decision that this is one if his best, that doesn't mean it doesn't have it's flaws, but I can overlook most of them because this story is so interesting. One common flaw which showed up in all his books is every ...more
