When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. Eleven years later, Wendy discovers her mother might have been right.  She’s not the person she’s always believed herself to be, and her whole life begins to unravel—all because of Finn Holmes.

Finn is a mysterious guy who always seems to be watching her. Every encounter leaves her deeply shaken…though it has more to do with her fierce attraction to him than she’d ever admit.  But it isn’t long before he reveals the truth: Wendy is a changeling who was switched at birth—and he’s come to take her home.   

Now Wendy’s about to journey to a magical world she never knew existed, one that’s both beautiful and frightening. And where she must leave her old life behind to discover who she’s meant to become…


The Trylle series is one of my favorite series ever! I recommend this book to everyone. It's amazing. The writing is great, Amanda Hocking's writing style is simple though at the same time, descriptive. The plot is great, though it might seem a little cheesy. The characters are amazing and unique. I just love all their personalities. And the way the characters interact with each other is also great.

The connection between Wendy and Finn is a buzz. And the love Wendy has for her brother is sweet, though she has a great disdain for her mother, who turns out not to be her biological mother. Wendy isn't related to her brother or her mother at all, so she has to go on a journey to discover who she really is and where she came from. 

But then she realizes that where she comes from doesn't matter, she won't change, but maybe she can change the way things are run in the world she belongs to.

A definite recommend!
