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.
I was excited that when the first book was released it wasn't going to be that long for the second one to follow. Leaving right off where the first book ended, we are able to jump right back into this strange but magical world that Ms. Hocking has created for us. I knew this book was one I had high hopes for and when finally having the chance to dive into these pages, I wasn't one who was filled with regret.
Wendy, for me, is one hell of a character throughout this book. She has so much going on and sometimes secrets are best left untold. Who knows what they changes they can bring out for not only you but the people around you. With secrets becoming unveiled, Wendy has other things on her mind that involve two boys of two very different worlds. Can she choose one without hurting the other or will she lose both in the end. All I can say for these two things is for you to take risk and read.
Ms. Hocking through the action, the love, and of course the sadness, she is able to create a story with a plot that one cannot help but love. Captivating beyond belief, one will find it hard to put this thrilling adventure down. Words cannot help me describe how grateful I was to stumble upon this book and the one before. I am eagerly waiting for the third and final novel to fall into these hands of mine. So to end this I just have one thing left to say. I encourage all readers to check out this fantastic book and series and enter its magical world that Ms. Hocking has created for all ages.
I give this book 5 souls!
