Amanda Hocking is an indie publishing sensation whose self-published novels have sold millions of copies all over the world. Step into the world of the Trylle, and prepare to be enchanted….
When Wendy Everly first discovers the truth about herself—that she’s a changeling switched at birth—she knows her life will never be the same. Now she’s about to learn that there’s more to the story…
She shares a closer connection to her Vittra rivals than she ever imagined—and they’ll stop at nothing to lure her to their side. With the threat of war looming, her only hope of saving the Trylle is to master her magical powers—and marry an equally powerful royal. But that means walking away from Finn, her handsome bodyguard who’s strictly off limits…and Loki, a Vittra prince with whom she shares a growing attraction.
Torn between her heart and her people, between love and duty, Wendy must decide her fate. If she makes the wrong choice, she could lose everything, and everybody, she’s ever wanted…in both worlds.
As a special gift to readers, this book contains a new, never-before-published bonus story, “One Day, Three Ways,” set in the magical world of the Trylle.
Torn by Amanda Hocking is enchanting with love and power! Another great book to be added to anyone’s reading lists!
However much she hates Trylle, she seems to be always running into trouble or rebelling who she is and what she is to become. It starts with her running away from Trylle and getting into trouble once again. She does not listen and gets herself into trouble. Little did she know, she unveils things about her heritage that she has never found out about, which surprises her and makes her want to know more.
The more I read the Trylle series, the more I begin to fall in love with reading again. School has taken over my life this past school year and it feels so good to start reading again, especially starting with Torn.
I have to say that I love Wendy more and more each time I flip the pages. She has grown so much throughout the first book and continues to grow more as the pages turn. She is more and more like a
My favorite part of this book is when she learns who she is, the other half of her as well as her trustworthiness in people. To me, it was shocking to learn what the other half she is. I did not see that coming and I was intrigued by the idea to see how the story progresses. As for her trustworthiness in people, I like how she is able to trust some people by merely meeting them for a few times or have talked to them for a few times. Her intuition gives her her trustworthiness in people.
What I did not enjoy is the love triangle. I enjoy some love triangles in books, however, this is not one of them because I didn’t like one of the people that is involved.
Overall, I extremely enjoyed this book after a long hiatus. It reminded me why I love reading so much and that I need to make some time for it. I was also determined to finish this book last night so I was able to read the third and last book in the Trylle series before I have to start summer school. Trylle is a one-sit read and a book that keeps you guessing and wanting more!
