Torn (Trylle Trilogy #2)FeaturedHot
I love that Wendy is strong willed and sure of herself. And I really enjoyed learning more about Tove. However, I really wanted more of Finn, and hopefully (hint hint) there is more of him in book three. However, enter Loki, a new mysterious character that was fun to read and brought a lot of chemistry along with him.
I felt that some parts of the book were lagging, and really felt that Ms. Hocking could have gone into more detail, but that's just me. And yea, I wanted more Finn. :) However, I will honestly say that I still want to read the third book and look forward to getting my hands on it!
I love Wendy. The dialogue exchanges between her and those around her have enough snark to not be annoying. She sounds very much like a teen who just had her world torn apart. I also love Finn. He's her tracker and has his own strong feelings for Wendy. But this love is forbidden. Enter Loki from the kingdom of Vittra, sworn enemies of Trylle. Whenever Wendy and Loki are together, chemistry ignites.
Hocking does a great job showing readers a world based on fairy tales that is very much real. There's enough uniqueness about this trilogy that it makes me want to read more. I love the twist on what is happening to the people of Vittra and why Wendy is very much needed there.
A huge plus of this book is the bonus story which shows all three of the men in Wendy's life through their point's of view. It shows their motives and also own struggles with how they feel about Wendy.
A total must read series. Now it's off to read ASCEND, the last book in the series. I can't wait to see what happens next!
2. Brings in another possible love interest that works!
3. Did I mention how much I love Finn?
4. Great pacing, dialogue, and adventure
5. Does a great job of weaving in backstory
6. Enough uniqueness to make this series stand out from others
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!
I think I liked Torn better than Switched. The plot just engaged me a bit more and I found the love interest a lot more... interesting.
Finn was such an idiot in this book, so rude. He was like all those other jerks in those other books who might have a pretty face but are just so cold and have no emotions. I think he deserved to be left by Wendy, but of course she can't let him go yet. I think she should be with Loki, he seems much sweeter. I still liked Finn but not as much as in the first book. In this book we got to meet his family, which was good.
Wendy was good in this book but not as rebellious as before. She kind of accepts her duty as Princess/Queen. I liked her rebellious spirit, but I can understand why she made the choices she did. (Wow that revelation about Tove was shocking)
I definitely recommend this book to fans of Switched. I can't wait to read Ascend!
the romance in this book between Wendy and Finn, her handsome tracker, and her and Loki the Vittra Markis is exceptionally Great. but to truly understand you have to read the first book, then come to read the second book. you will fall in love with the book from the first word.
Finn was such a idiot in this book as he was rude to Wendy so deserved that Wendy fell in love with Loki. I still like Finn but he is not as appealing as before. In Torn you got to meet his family and see his home, which gave more insight into his past. As well you got to put a name to a face because you got to learn more about Thomas, Finn's father. I liked Finn's sister, she seemed like she had a rebellious little soul, which I like a lot about characters.
Wendy was just as good but some of her spirit had died. She still had some fight left in her but she didn't fight for her freedom as much, she just accepted what had happened with Tove and her. Since the book was written in her view you got to know some of the reasons why but I still liked her better in the first book.
This is an excellent read and I cannot wait to read Ascend.
