The Everspring- Book 2 in The Saga of Torin Ten-Trees
Torin Ten-Tree's debt of service as a trollhunter in Gatewatch has been paid. Now he must decide whether to return home to take up his father's seat in Ten-Tree Hall or to become a Greycloak of Gatewatch along with Grimsa and Wyla. Torin grapples with an unexpected revelation, the long-hidden identity of his mother, just as a delegation brings urgent news of King Araldof Greyraven's grave and sudden illness. The last desperate hope to keep the realm from wreck and ruin is the legend of a powerful source of healing, the Everspring. Yet, greater questions and graver answers await Torin and his company on the road north through the land of the immortal giants. As long-forgotten secrets are unveiled, they learn not only the cause of the Greyraven’s illness but the insidious origins of the evil that first spawned the trolls in the wild woods beyond Gatewatch.
The Everspring is a Norse fantasy adventure flavoured with hints of such heroic sagas as Beowulf, Sigurd the Dragonslayer, and Angantyr the Berserker. It is the second book in The Saga of Torin Ten-Trees and the sequel to The Gatewatch.
