Description


TIRED OF LIVING NEAR DISCOURTEOUS HUMANS, GIGANTA stomps over miles of rough lava fields in the coursing rain hoping to find the trolls who left her behind when they migrated to the secret places deep within the volcanic mountains of Iceland. On the way she encounters, Gustaf, Head Scout for the Inner Earth Elves, who leads her through darkened tunnels and down treacherous paths deep within the earth. He guides her to the hidden Elf Kingdom where she meets Ilg, another troll, who lives among the elves. When an earthquake rocks the Elf Kingdom, Queen Drotti of the Elves sends Giganta, Ilg, and Gustaf on a dangerous mission to discover the cause of the terrible disruption. The journey, fraught with hardship, takes them to Musterihof, the Great Temple, where Giganta learns that all life on earth is in grave danger. With the land and their lives threatened, the three companions return to the Elf Kingdom. Using newfound skills, a cunning plan, and a little magic, they find a way to turn back the tide that is destroying the earth.
