Series: Trylle Trilogy #2
Acknowledging that she was different from everyone else wasn’t difficult for Wendy Everly – she’d always felt like an outsider. But a new world and new family is a hard for any girl to accept easily.
Leaving behind the mysterious country of her birth, she is determined to fit back into normal life. But the world she’s left behind won’t let her go that easily. Kidnapped and imprisoned by her true family’s enemies, Wendy soon learns that the lines between good and evil aren’t as defined as she thought. And those things she’d taken for granted may have been lies all along. With the help of the dangerously attractive Loki, she escapes back to the safety of Förening – only to be confronted by a new threat.
It’s time to make a choice – can she put aside her personal feelings for the sake of her country? Torn between duty and love she must make a choice that could destroy her one chance at true happiness.
It's common knowledge that the sequel is always such a let down, but Torn is the exception! I adore this trilogy and the second book did not let it down whatsoever.
Picking up where Switched left off, this book sees Wendy abducted by the Vittra, her father's kingdom, and she soon discovers the price she has to pay in order to stay alive and save everyone in Forening. And then there's Loki, a handsome Vittra Markis who can't seem to get enough of Wendy. Just when life couldn't get more complicated with Finn and now Loki, Wendy finds out she's getting married - to Tove! Accepting her destiny as the future Queen of Forening, Wendy is determined to lead her people and stop her father from stealing her and killing her people.
I cannot praise this book (and series) more highly, and this book was a great continuation of the story, filled with action, drama and romance. I love the world Amanda has created, and she continues to build it and give it a backstory, which I absolutely love.
I seriously cannot find any fault with this book, other than I wanted more when I finished (which was easily solved because I picked up book three!). I highly recommend this book to fantasy lovers, because you won't be disappointed!
