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.


This series gets even better as it goes on, grabbing you and keeping you interested till the end, and then leaving you wanting more. Amanda Hocking's writing is simple, with amazing examples to describe things. The characters she's created for this series are also great, making you really connect with them, therefore, sucking you into the story. You really feel like you're in their world. 

The plot is amazing, a real page-turner. This series really makes you want to read as fast as possible to know what will happen next. I stayed up really late to read this book, always telling myself "oh I'll just read one more chapter" but it was nearly impossible to put the book down. 

The relationship between Wendy and Finn is tensing, and now Tove is even more wrapped up in the story. Also, a new character is introduced. One that will have you completely mesmerized. Loki. A Vittra prince who is completely fascinated with Wendy.

I love all the little details Amanda puts into these book. If you go to her website, you can look at Elora's paintings, look at a lay-out of the castle, read about the five tribes, and more. You can watch the book trailers for the series if you click on Book Trailers above.

The plot continues in the finale book in the Trylle Trilogy, ending in Ascend.
