The Truth About Mud (Mangleblood Rose Series Book 1) by Christina L. Rozelle

I love reading fantasy and this one is about trolls.  Fane and Thistle are young, they are good friends and they do dangerous things together.  That makes for a good story!

The author and instaFreebies let me read this book for review (thank you).  You can grab a copy on Amazon.

Thistle wants to learn to fight like the boys but girls aren't allowed to.  Every time the King catches her, he flips her out of the arena.  It's a good thing trolls bounce.

They also wear mud.  It keeps the stink down.  (Seems like it would be just the opposite.  Maybe that's just a human trait.)  It seems there is a bit more to the mud then any of us know.  The crow said so.

The crow steals Thistle's medallion that was her grandmother's.  It's all she had left of her and she's determined to get it back.  The crow take it to the other side of the river.  It's forbidden territory over there.  How can they retrieve it?

They eavesdrop, find a secret passage and get on the other side but it's different over there.  Very, very different.

This is the beginning of a new series and it's a fun read.  I'd read the next book, too.  The story is just getting started and it's shaping up into an interesting tale.
