Torn, Book Two of The Trylle Series, By Amanda Hocking

“When Wendy Everly first discovered the truth about herself- that she’s a changeling switched at birth- she knew her life would never be the same. Now she’s about to learn that there’s more to the story… 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.”

Amanda Hocking’s second book in this wonderful trilogy is very captivating and beautifully written. Because I got the first two books in the series at the same time, I couldn’t help but to instantly pick up book two and start reading as soon as I finished Switched. That’s how much I love the series. Some series are a let-down after book one, but not this story, Torn delivered and left me hungering for more.

Torn between her loyalties, past and future, her heart and what is expected of her, Wendy is lost and makes so many difficult decisions, proving she is such a strong and compassionate heroine. I love her personality and ability to deal with anything that is thrown at her.

Switched and Torn were wonderful intros into the world of the Trylle, but the conclusion is soon to come in Ascend, the final book in the trilogy. I am eagerly awaiting its arrival so that I can find out how it all ends.

Delightful Readings 🙂

Prophecy of the Sisters, Book One, By Michelle Zink

image

Prophecy of the Sisters is about a legacy of twin girls born every generation from angelic descendants. Alice and Amalia are the most recent of these twins, but nothing is as it seems. Both girls are not as close as you’d think they’d be, if only because of this prophecy. It has driven sisters apart and set them against each other for centuries.

Lia has no idea about any of this, until the night her father dies. That’s when everything starts to unravel. Strange things have happened in the past, but for her this is the strangest thing to happen and now she’s curious as to how and why her father was killed.

An extraordinary read and suspenseful, I was glad to have picked it up at the local library on a whim, along with the sequels to it. It will keep you hanging on until the very last word.

Joyful Readings 🙂
