The Trouble with Trolls: An Enchanted Fairy Tale

Magic. Mystery. Twisted Fairy Tales to Delight!

Move over Beauty and the Beast—Make room for Beauty and the Troll.

In this fractured fairy tale, a wicked and selfish king accidentally marries a big beautiful troll. Their child is a troll changeling who becomes the king’s pet warrior, filling the role of monster the king needs to destroy his enemies.

Unfortunately for King Hathgar, his troll son escapes. Worse yet, upon his return, Harry the Troll, experiences a sudden malfunction in his ability to remain a troll and becomes cursed with the body of a human. How is Hathgar ever going to get rid of his newest wife, abundance of daughters, and take over the neighboring kingdom if his secret weapon stops eating people?

When Harry meets a beautiful fairy godmother who doesn’t put up with monstrous manners or trollish eating habits, he discovers that he prefers being gentle rather than acting as a monster. With the help of dancing princesses and mythological creatures, he comes up with a plan to defeat the king’s diabolical plots.

This is one of many short stories and novellas that take place in The Chronicles of Forget-Me-Not Forest.
