A Very Satisfying Conclusion

After I read TORN, book two in the Trylle series, I was kind of worried what would happen in the final book. I shouldn't have been. Let's just say I'm a huge fan of Hocking's books. She's a natural storyteller and this series shows that!

Wendy is torn between Finn and Loki. Add to that the whole idea that a war is brewing and she has a big part of this. I loved the revelation on why she's so important. There's twists and turns throughout that kept me on the edge. Got to love that! Also Wendy could very easily been whiny and sarcastic throughout the whole series but instead we catch glimpses of some of her vulnerabilities which strengthen her. No offense but the whole whiny heroine is getting kind of old.

There's action, suspense, and even romance that are fast-paced in this very satisfying conclusion to one of my favorite paranormal series. Hocking's world of the Trylle is part Grifter, part modern day fairy tale with characters that are very real.

If you haven't read one of Hocking's book yet, this is the series to start with. I can't wait for more!
Good Points
1. Hocking is a great storyteller
2. Very satisfying conclusion to this series
3. Great characters
