Torn

BOOK 1: Switched by Amanda Hocking

Torn    description:

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.

As a special gift to readers, this book contains a new, never-before-published bonus story, “One Day, Three Ways,” set in the magical world of the Trylle.

I couldn’t stop reading this series… usually when I’m reading these books I like to take a break before I keep on but I couldn’t, I’ve been just flying through them… you can’t put it down… the story just keeps getting better and more involved and there’s so much going on without being confusing… which is nice considering you’ve entered into a whole society of trolls that do things their way… but I like that Wendy’s developing and getting stronger in her person even though she’s still unsure of what to do… she’s also not weak and girlish in her desires… she is willing to put the kingdom before herself… instead of wanting what she wants and fighting the system senselessly… which I’m all for at times but I think it’s rather great how she’s fighting it but also knows when she’s got to do what’s right for her people… and though there’s almost like a love square going on… considering there’s Finn… then the Vittra guy… and then the guy she’s supposed to marry… it’s not like she’s wishwashy… she’s pretty level headed… and yet open to the fact that she could be happy with someone other than Finn… which is a nice change from the normal YA theme of falling in love with one guy and that’s all there is too it… oh it’s amazing… everyone should read this…

  1. Hi,

    I’ve been reading your reviews for a while and I love them! You are so honest about how you feel about the book. Anyway, I’ve noticed you’ve had a couple of posts about you book. The cover for your book to be more precise. About how you need it to be more eye catching or something and you’ve changed it a couple of times… Well, I want to be a graphic designer, or more specifically, learn photoshop so I can make book covers/movie posters etc. I haven’t read ‘Immortal Longings’ but I made a cover just for a fun! Tell me what you think.

    • Thank you… sometimes I wonder if I should sound more clinical… like how one might write an essay where you never use the word “I”… but I figured this is my blog and you know it’s me talking about how I feel so why not just say it like it is… 😀 by the way I sent an email… I’d love to see this pic…
