The Last Trollid (The Sunset of Magic #1) by Alistair Potter (Book Review #576)

The last trollid is a fantasy story; book one of the sunset of magic series. The story begins with a world gate being opened by a wizard causing aliens to attack the population of the land. Ida operates in the kitchens and ends up transporting the combatants to safety when she falls into a mission in finding a forbidden city that contains a way to defeat the enemy.

The story is filled with descriptive writing regarding the world, science fiction, battles, dragons and more. There are a few characters playing a role that lead the story however the protagonist is the one to fall in love with. Ida is a beautifully drawn character and her relationship with Bort is very sweet.


The pace of the story was slow at times and I believe since the story is to be book one, could have benefited with a stronger background story. However, the way the characters played off one another, the plot, and the sequence of which pulled the story together ratified that notion of a need for backup.


I recommend this book to science fiction fans and people who enjoy reading fantasy stories.
