Wendy truly is torn in this book. She’s torn over her sense of duty versus love. She’s dealing with a lot more than she was in the previous book, and a lot more is riding on her shoulders. As a result she must learn more about Trylle and Vittra history, and develop and control her powers. I really enjoyed reading more about the troll world, and what kind of powers Wendy has yet to come into fully. It was also interesting to watch Wendy go from a carefree teen to a reluctant princess and finally to a dutiful Queen in training. We also get to see a new side of Elora, which made me hate her less, and made her feel more real. I also started feeling sorry for her, which I wasn’t expecting. In fact, there’s quite a few things I wasn’t expecting in this book, and that just made it that much more enjoyable.
I enjoyed this one even more than the first book. I loved learning more about the different trolls, but I especially loved Loki. He’s incredibly handsome and charming, and I’m just drawn to him much like Wendy is. I can’t figure out if he truly feels like they have a connection or if he has an unknown agenda. Either way, I hope to see him again in the next book, and I cannot wait to see how this trilogy ends!
