4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable sequel and a hot new character :) 28 May 2012
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
Obviously, it goes without saying that if you have not yet read Switched (the first book in the Trylle series)then do not go any further as you may encounter potential spoilers.

Torn is of course the eagerly awaited sequel to Switched and I devoured it just as quickly as I did the first book. It's just pure entertainment value and easy reading - and I mean that as a compliment. Never in my life did I think I would enjoy a book about trolls!

You may recall at the end of Switched that Wendy ran back home with her tail between her legs but guess what?! SHE CAN'T STAY THERE and I'm sure that will come as a big shock to you all *rolls eyes*. What I liked most about Torn I think is Wendy's character development. She starts accepting who and what she is more and more, even relishing in the role on occasion. She develops a sense of duty as she comes to understand that the Trylle need a leader, a queen. Speaking of duty, let's talk about frustrating yet dutiful Finn who starts pushing Wendy away because he has nothing to offer her but banishment. I get this, I do but ANGSTY ANGST, ARGH! You know?

In the midst of it all, we have Loki, a young Markis from VIttra who tries to kidnap Wendy and bring her to the king whose interest in her is beyond political. Amanda? THANK YOU for Loki. I love a bad boy with a cheeky chappy sense of humour and he certainly fits the bill. Loki and Wendy enjoy some flirtatious banter and this of course sets up a potential love triangle between Wendy, Finn and Loki but we'll see about that ;)
Torn delves deeper into the world of the Trylle and I enjoyed learning that whilst we tend to think of the VIttra as the bad guys, let's just say that it's a little bit more complicated than that.

Torn is a very enjoyable sequel and I'm looking forward to Ascend (Trylle #3) which is out now!

Torn a mind blowing book that has you gripped from the first page. Wendy is courageous character and is willing to protect her kingdom from the dark forces furthermore Wendy discovers she is falling with the handsome and dark Loki who would bring happiness and love into her life but Wendy has to protect her people. A astonishing read and a magnificent book. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thank God it's over! 10 May 2012
By Sarah
Format:Kindle Edition
(Book length: 3864 kindle locations)
(I was given this book for free on a read-to-review basis.)
This is the second book in the `Trylle' trilogy, and kicks off at the point where the first book finished.
So Wendy has finally walked out on her awful mother, and has run off back home with Rhys - the boy that she was swapped at birth for - and therefore her brother's real brother.

They make it back and Wendy introduces Rhys and Matt, before Finn and another tracker called Duncan make an appearance, and tell Wendy that she needs to go back to Forening. Wendy point blank refuses, and so Finn and Duncan leave. Not long after the house is attacked by the Vittra - a different tribe of trolls, and Wendy, Matt, and Rhys are all taken captive.

Wendy makes a fuss and finds out why they have been taken - the Vittra King is her biological father, and so he too feels like he can lay claim to her. Thankfully, Finn, Duncan, and Tove come to her rescue, and she finds herself back at her mother's palace in Trylle.

From then on there is a lot of politics - which kingdom will Wendy rule? How can they prevent war between the Trylle and Vittra? How long will it be before Wendy will be queen?
There is also some romantic intrigue, with Wendy finding herself romantically involved with three different men!

I hate to say this but I am so glad that this book is over. I really enjoyed Switched, so much so that I immediately began reading Torn, unfortunately this book failed to live up to my expectations. I found myself having real trouble staying focused whilst reading this book, and at around 40% I had to start speed-reading through to stop myself from totally giving up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stupendously Super Sequel! 18 Nov 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow, I've consumed the first two books in the Trylle series in a couple of days! Addictive stuff.

The second in the Trylle series sees Wendy uncovering more of the history of the Trylle and their enemy the Vittra. With more of the facts of her own heritage laid bare and just exactly what is expected of her, Wendy struggles to decide what is more important to her - her love for Finn (someone completely unsuitable for a Princess) or her duty to the crown and to her people.

The political intrigue and the wonderful history Hocking creates pushes the plot along, as well as her easy style of writing. Moreover, Wendy's first person narrative is even better in the second novel as she somehow becomes more compassionate and yet stronger. As she trains in her powers she begins, slowly but surely, to have a little self-belief; I really enjoyed her character development.

Some great new characters added, not quite sure what they want just yet...so...

...Impatiently waiting for the third novel.

5 stars!
