Jacob Donley about this book: Car'Al is a rock troll who does not follow the belief that all other races are inferior like his tribe does. After suffering years of abuse from other rock trolls, the conflict comes to a breaking point in this short story about a rock troll breaking away from the norms of his society and choosing another path.
I hope that those readers who read Tolkien or Terry Brooks will appreciate a story written about a fantasy race that hasn't been brought to the forefront very often. I wrote this story to help engage a piece of the fantasy genre and bring about a protagonist that was not human, elven, or dwarven, yet still had characteristics that that a reader finds heroic, honorable, and noble. Car'Al follows in the Drizz't Do'Urden tradition, and it is my honest hope that readers will fall in love with him as a character as much as I did with Drizz't. He has similar beginnings and an honest heart, but he isn't afraid to spill a little blood when the need arises.
