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.

This is the second book of the Trylle Trilogy and it continues Wendy’s struggles with being a troll princess and the duties that come with it.  Several things come out in this book, some I figured out, others were a surprise.  I like Wendy even more in this book than the first, though sometimes she can still be a bit immature.  I also like Tove and Loki (I already liked Tove, but even more now; he is just so loyal).  I am not quite sure why Wendy still has feelings for Finn, but I guess you can’t really help who you fall for, right?  We get introduced to some new characters who are from the Vittra, and their king is definitely one for my dislike list.  He is horrible!

We still don’t really get to see much in the kingdom, except for a small glance.  I still would like to see some more descriptions in places, and I noticed some words the author favors.  In Switched, she favored creepy and foxy, now she added smolder to the list, so be prepared to hear those words a few times.  Stuff that irritated me in the first book luckily isn’t present in the second book like how she would get in trouble for not automatically knowing things about the Trylle.  I liked the way it ended and I can’t wait to see how everything works out because I really want everyone to be able to be happy.

The book was a really fast read and I flew through the discs.  The same narrator is used and she still does a great job.  I look forward to the finaly book and to see how things wrap up.

Characters more developed, same great narrator, over use of some words, still want more descriptions.
