With bittersweet feelings, I bring you this review of Ascend This is the last book in The Trylle Trilogy It is just as enthralling as the first two books in the series I am not giving spoilers here You will want to experience the evolution with the cast of Trylle for yourself Some may cry, some may cheer, but in my opinion, Hocking has written one of the best series in YA fantasy.We left Wendy in Torn engaged to her friend Tove They really are a perfect match for each other and would be the stro [...]
First, let me address the fact that I do love the series as a whole Now, that being said, I found this to be the worst book in the trilogy I read through the reviews to be quite honest, I am totally appalled that people acually enjoy Wendy ending up with Loki I despised him from his introduction I was totally team Finn, but in the second book, I didn t mind if she ended up with Tove They seemed well suited for each other It would have been great to have them fall in love despite the marriage bei [...]
The third book in Amanda Hocking s Trylle trilogy was definitely a huge disappointment After reading the first two books, I thought the story was interesting and had an intriguing storyline but overall, the entire trilogy went downhill fast In this third book, Wendy is stuck having to make decisions for the good of the kingdom or for what she really wants in life You go through her struggles of marrying someone that she doesn t love and falling in love with the enemy She also struggles with the [...]
Don t act on everything your heart says, but make sure you listen to it Sometimes your heart is right Well, where should I start This book This series cries with happy tearsOne of my biggest problems in reading a final book of the series is the separation anxiety that I always get With this book, I found myself experiencing the same It s hard to let go of a series that basically makes you feel attached to the story, the characters, and its world Ascend is another one of those series enders that [...]
librarytalker 201With Wendy s wedding approaching and war on the horizon, she must now make preparations to keep her people from dying The choices she makes now will either guarantee the future of the Trylle or destroy them completely.Final thoughts Ugh I am so disappointed by this book It was an absolute mess Hocking seems to have realized late in the game that she needed to resolve points from her first two books in this trilogy and she kind of just jams those resolutions in without any honest [...]
I can t believe Wendy and Finn didn t get their happy ending Seriously The author made me fall in love with this couple and then out of no where, it s like Oh, I m going to fall in love with someone else instead It was very disappointing I did love how much Wendy changed and became the queen she was meant to be but it was a slap in the face that she chose Loki over Finn Loki was cool and I understand how she could be with him when they were in the other place but Finn was her love and he had a s [...]
review found at awesomebooknutGREAT ending to a fabulous trilogy I was beyond happy about the whole thing Seriously I do have some nicks but nothing super serious.I loved seeing the development with Wendy and her mother I loved the regret, development, love that was revealed and shared between the two.I absolutely love the love triangle which is VERY odd for me to say I loved that the author was able to make me rage war with myself in who I liked better But in the end I am very happy with how th [...]
REVIEWI read these three books back to back to back on my Kindle The story had me so engaged, that I could not put it down I was reading in the car, at school, on my bed, at the dinner table, and in the media room You could call it an obsession.In this paranormal tale, Wendy learns at the age of seventeen that she is a troll Oh, but she isn t just ANY troll, her past is filled with mystery, deceit, and some unexpected ancestors Amanda Hocking carefully twisted this plot with all sorts of surpris [...]
Itwas AMAZING Okay, okay, I read this a while ago but I can still remember it Trust me, I m not failing in Spanish yet My memory still beats an 80 year old This series was definitely one of the best reads I ve had as a child before 13 But let me tell you, puberty struck early, and you know what happens My hormones are all over the place.This book had be blown at who to choose Loki, or Finn Literally me while reading this book okayG, I love Finn wait no, hold on.Loki s being pretty sexy toorgghhh [...]
One thing I truly appreciate about the author s writing is that she doesn t draw out her books with endless filler words I never find myself wanting to skip past parts in boredom of endless elaboration of feelings or a situation Her writing always seems to flow at a nice pace, keeping the reader s interest throughout the entire book As for Ascend, I felt it was the perfect ending to a wonderful trilogy In this final book, Wendy finally takes over the Trylle kingdom, after her mother passes Befor [...]
This is it The queen is dying The king wants her kingdom He will do anything to get it Only Wendy stands in the way.The final book in the Trylle Trilogy has great character development and an excellent romance I was, however, a bit underwhelmed by the ending We ll get to that First, the characters Wendy can be a bit dramatic She will jump to decisions in a heartbeat and that kind of annoyed me at first It s like she doesn t stop to think before she acts I guess I should be used to her by now but [...]
I went on a reading binge and read all three books in the trilogy in a 9 hour period on Saturday They were simple reads but still had a fun story that left you wanting to know I decided to combine my review in one place since they all did seem to blur together because I read it as one long story instead of three separate books First, this is a new world that I loved reading about Something different from the standard mythical creatures that are so big right now The person she ends up with at th [...]
Extra Link Amazing article by MakingFunOfStuff How to Judge a Book by its CoverWhat should I say concerning the last book of Miss Hocking s Trylle trilogy Simply put, the whole thing is one hell of silly wish fulfilling make believe, with zero realism in the world building, characters, setting and plot Our first and foremost problem begins with Wendy, the heroine of the trilogy In Ascend, Wendy suddenly becomes capable leader s material, who can keep the nobles at check Sorry, I just can t belie [...]
SummaryI read this trilogy back to back, so instead of three books I feel like I ve read on big book.In Switched Wendy is just starting out at another new school She has a way of getting into trouble with students and teachers Mostly she just doesn t fit in at all Her mother is in a mental institute for trying to kill her when she was six years old, claiming that she wasn t her daughter but that she was some kind of monster Apparently, her mother wasn t too far off from the truth At her new scho [...]

A lovely end to this cute series The first time I read it, I wanted Finn and Wendy to end up together, but this time, I totally get the direction Ms Hocking went with While Finn and Wendy had passion, duty continually got in the way of their happily ever after and after three books of this, it gets a little sickening Loki was a wonderful character who is actually a perfect fit for Wendy and is just who she needs to help her rule her kingdom.I love how Wendy grew throughout the series, too She st [...]
Everybody deserves a Happy Ending and I just
I wrote a review for this on my blog, but since I wrote it right after I finished reading the book, I was on a bit of what I call a book hangover Yeah Don t ask It s crazy So now that it s been 48 hours I ve calmed down and I m going to attempt to write a spoiler free review.If you re not afraid of a spoiler crazy review, you can visit my blog and check out my review I devoured the first two books as soon as I got them I really liked them I was just super excited for this one, and I was not disa [...]
Changing this update a little bit Most people should know that this is my all time favorite trilogy and if you dont well it is and you should read it I was looking at reviews for this book specifically and I found out that a lot of people love Loki a lot and that makes me feel like a bad person because I absolutely hated that bitch Finn is my love I love him so much I cried when Wendy didn t pick him just because he was so sweet in my opinion You could tell he really loved and wanted to be with [...]
This book was absolutely amazing Out of the trilogy this book was the best The romance, mystery, the story building up the ending was amazing The storyline was phenomenal IT WAS THE PERFECT ENDING I couldn t think of anything perfect.
Perfect conclusion to the trilogy, everything wraps up super nicely I never thought I will enjoy this as much as I did Elora turned out to be a good mother, that is so sad as we only see a little of her I m so thrilled that my ship is sailing 3 Overall this is a great book filled with actions, romance, politics, and all the good stuffs.
This book was freaking amazing Like the whole plot and even the ending was perfect I loved this series so much and I will definitely be rereading it very soon
Ascend is the perfect ending to the Trylle Trilogy I m sure there are than a few people who wish Amanda Hocking had taken the obvious route with her plot, but I for one am so glad she didn t Wendy is trying to save her people but they continue to fight against her and amongst themselves making her task seem insurmountable She has put the needs of her kingdom ahead of her own, but no matter what she tries, everything seems to be falling apart I love that Wendy fights for what she believes in, wh [...]
I really wanted to love the finale of this series The second book was definitely my favorite This book centers around the war with the Vittra Wendy grows a lot and is pretty much running things around Forening My main problem with this book is my main problem with the entire series Too many unanswered questions With that said, the series was okay, and definitely worth the 5 I spent on all three books through the Barnes and Noble Nook store I just feel that Hocking could ve taken this whole serie [...]
In the beginning, I really didn t think that I would like this series It was hard for me to think of trolls as anything than ugly, mean, selfish, short creatures who live under bridges and won t let anyone cross goats, Dora, etc But as the series progressed and I got used to the whole troll thing , I actually enjoyed it a lot The plot wasn t too predictable and after she grew up, I started to appreciate understand Wendy Given the fact that I absolutely adored most of the characters, I can now a [...]

SPOILERSI have so many problems with this book I don t know where to start.Everything was FAR too convenient They went to war and no one they knew died How convenient She fell in love with the Prince of the other kingdom they were at war with How convenient In fact this book made me squirm the entire way throughout it Not because it was any good either The series as a whole was okay It was very imaginative and interesting, steeped in folklore and magic It has been compared with Harry Potter, whi [...]
