“Along came a child, meagre and volatile and full of want, hanging on the brink of Death…”
– As inscribed on the Entryway of the Great Chasm –
The Trowler, Troll and Trouble is a fiction ebook novel by Christos Polydorou. It is the first in a series of three (in progress) novels:
Mary, a twelve-year old scavenger of the mucky Dens, has long tried to deny that some sort of 'power' lurks within her - until she unwittingly, and quite uncannily, sets her owner, Mr Snatch, on fire. As chance would have it though, instead of being binned into yet another Workhouse, a twist of fate lands Mary at Grimshaw Manor instead, home of the prolific Professor Wilrick. There she must learn how to be a child again, but that is easier said than done, especially when the discovery of a terrible secret weighs heavy in her soul.
Mary must now solve a mystery spanning thirty years back and rid Grimshaw of the evil that plagues it, threatening the life of every child that lives there. But to do so, she must first come to terms with who she really is, but most importantly, who she chooses to become.
