What happens when everything changes Switched may not be the great introduction to this series, but Torn made it all up There were a lot of developments here in this book thanks to my new favorite character ladies and gentlemen, Loki Staad I have to make a special highlight to this awesome character because he deserves it Loki is one spectacular character I admired his realness and the way he treated Wendy in this book He may be a Vittra but he wasn t considered a villain To be honest, he was th [...]

Review found at awesomebooknutWow so many thoughts and feelings My biggest one, is WHY DIDN T I READ THIS SOONER sheesh so good In this one we are introduced to new and exciting characters, things that were kept from Wendy are revealed, some awesome and major character developments happen in this one It s just great.I enjoyed of Matt, Wendy s brother and his role in this, I so enjoyed the tension between Wendy and Finn sigh But the biggest development that I really enjoyed was the new character [...]
What the hell IS this Did Amanda Hocking miss out on the sixth grade English when they taught the basic outline of a story There needs to be a beginning a middle a CLIMAX and an end This wasn t even a story, it was just a random bunch of non events The most annoying part of this book was the complete lack of progress or pacing The beginning actually wasn t bad Wendy was kidnapped by the Vittra and I actually thought the whole book was going to be like this, but no Once Wendy gets back home, noth [...]
Rating 4.5 beautiful stars You know you have an amazing sequel when you love it than the first book and that s exactly the case with Torn I wasn t expecting to be as blown away as I was but I ended up loving it from the beautiful cover to the heartbreaking end.From the very first page, I already knew I was going to lose sleep reading this book It still gives enough information to remind you of what happened in Switched, but the recap isn t boring or overwhelming We also get to learn about the [...]

No spoilers What a difference a book makes Torn is such a better book than Switched, holy guacamole The only things I didn t like we re Finn his entire character grr , and the ending was a bit anticlimactic in my opinion.Wendy was so much tolerable in this book She was a lot selfless and friendly, and she is actually shaping up to be a good queen But I swear if she ends up with Finn t will hit the fan Seriously, Loki is actual bae right now He is AMAZING I don t have a guy crush Not at all Hon [...]
Unfortunately, Torn is even worse than the first, lacking in many of the things Switched had to offer It s really hard to get into a book when the main character insists and refuses to do anything in any way but her own And the similarities to Richelle Mead s Vampire Academy series Maybe Amanda Hocking didn t mean for that to happen, or for anyone to be aware of it, but I tend to pick up on the littlest of things We ll start off with the whole I love my mentor but he won t love me back thing we [...]
There s a lot of politics and romances, I mean big major POLITICS AND ROMANCESd ToveI don t know what to sayank God you re damn foxy
Torn, book 2 of Amanda Hocking s Trylle trilogy, is a very easy book to read and it wouldn t charge you too much time and effort, but the writing is so plain that it lacks tone, style, tension, foreshadowing and grace Okay, just about everything which would make the book interesting.Instead we are once again stuck with the uninteresting Wendy s first person POV throughout the entire book, and her narration is becoming counter productive to the story For most of the book Wendy is focused on three [...]
Loki 3 Loki 3 Loki 3 The time for swooning has finally arrived I love him,I love him so much 3We left Wendy returning to her old home and her brother Matt,with Rhys by her side after using persuasion on him.It was really obvious that this was a very,very bad choice,one she would regret.But on the bright side,we came to know why the Vittra wanted her so badly their king is such a huge as hole and the queen merely a puppet and yes,praise the Lord,Loki came into our lives.A sassy but surpsisingly h [...]
clearly a second in a trilogy a lot of getting there stuff nice to see people actually telling Wendy things she needs to knowrgot to mention super psyched that there s a gay character
An amazing sequel and LOKI my love
My main issue with Amanda Hocking is that she has no sense of rise and fall She doesn t know how to bring the story to a high point and then leave you heaving with suspense in the conclusion She made an improvement from the first book by giving you reason to believe that the series will continue She left Wendy s relationship with her father, the Vittra King, open for us to find out later We still don t have much of a handle on who Wendy is and what she wants We know she thinks that she s pretty, [...]
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 [...]
Torn Trylle 2 , Amanda Hocking 1391 408 9786006003931 21
Torn starts from exactly where Switched is left off Wendy after getting fed up with the life she has at the palace persuades Rys into taking her back to Matt, her host brother s house Torn is exciting as it introduces many characters some surprising than others but I would nt want to give it away More dangers are to come as the Vittra are aware where Wendy is and that she has reached the age and is capable of becoming queen After complications, which consequence in Finn to leave, Wendy finds [...]
3.5 StarsThat was a hell of a lot enjoyable than book one Switched I m now solidly immersed within the world of the Trylle and eager to witness Wendy s humble rise to Queendom With the exception of my disdain for all the adults in this story, and my hair pulling frustration at the gutless wonder that is Finn this guyARGGGHHH , I truly grew to love most of the characters in this story I loved that Matt Wendy s brother from her human host family returned to play a much substantial and stabilisin [...]
I ve been thinking about boundaries and edges a lot lately since picking up Amanda Hocking s newest release Torn, which she was kind enough to let me review early The title alone suggests such things Edges Boundaries Thresholds Wendy Everly and nearly everyone she cares about stands at one of these in Hocking s second installment of her acclaimed Trylle trilogy Friends, family, enemies, and Wendy herself remain caught in cross currents of political and class struggles, navigating complex persona [...]
I think this is the best book in the series even though Wendy does annoy me at times with how fast she switches between guys.The series does keep getting better and better and you can tell how the author s writing is maturing in the fantasy genre.
Plot wise A pretty good sequel.Character wise No Especially how Wendy acted.The Good There was a lot plot development than the last book The first book, Switched, consisted mainly of Wendy just learning to be a Princess, and it got a little boring However, this wasn t entirely like that I enjoyed learning about the history between the Trylle and the Vittra I now understand why they re enemies and how serious the situation is I also see the Vittra in a new light now They re still not the good g [...]
Okay,I admit this one was way better than the first part.Even Elora is likeable and approachable.We basically get information about Wendy s family and the constant war between the Vitrra and Trylle.Summary of the characters Finn is being a huge freaking jackass but because he cares,duh I swear,I was praying through the whole book that Wendy will just forget about him Villa and Matt are spending time together Rhys is pretty much forgotten Tove is being awesome as always Dancan is being very ni [...]
Ms Hocking has something good going here I am certainly not a fan of paranormal romance unless it has some decent action in it and doesn t drip with saccharine This one I picked up due to her rather large following on , and I read her blog one day only to discover a curiosity of her work I read both this and the first volume of the Trylle Trilogy Switched in just over a week and a half.These are a self published book and it shows in places The editing could use a little work, but overall they re [...]
This book is an honourable sequel to the Trylle world, with plenty of character development and interesting story Wendy is a lot accepting of her role as Princess, and I again feel that realness with her she s stubborn and irritating at times, but she says what she feels and I couldn t help agreeing with her a lot of the time and thinking that if I suddenly realised I was royalty in a completely different species, I would probably act this way too.There s a love triangle with Finn, her tracker, [...]
You meet Loki He may be a Vittra spelling Book isn t in front of me , but that doesn t mean all of them are bad It shows a different side to them and you just learn about them The drama that happens between Finn and Wendy isn t the best, but it shows of the fact that Finn wants to try an stop whatever s going on between them Rhys meets Matt and it isn t the best relationship at first until they start hanging out, causing Matt to realize he really is his brother.
3.5 Stars Loki is so cocky I love him but Finn and Wendy s romance made my heart hurt ugh.
I know Wendy and Loki will never be together my instinct says they won t but I ship them anyway xD 4.5 5 stars.
Wer Band eins mochte, der wird auch Band zwei m gen So einfach ist das Es geht vollkommen flie end ineinander ber, man findet super schnell wieder in die Geschichte, die Charaktere sind genauso toll wie noch in Band eins, das Buch ist sogar sehr viel actiongeladener als noch Verborgen und der Schreibstil auch hier wunderbar.Meine einzige Kritik an Band eins war ja, dass man mehr ber Tove erfahren sollte und im Zusammenhang damit auch ber seine F higkeiten und auch ber das, was noch in Wendy so s [...]
