As I said before, Wendy learns too soon that she's a trylle. I didn't like this book too much, I expected something better ( I love Amanda Hocking ) ( )

I can't say anything about this book without sounding like a pretentious asshole. Let's just say, I got what I came for. I'm still not sure what it says about us as a culture that this series has sold millions of copies, but the clear parallels with several other bestsellers (namely Twilight and Harry Potter) have cemented for me what a large proportion of readers are enjoying very much.

I cannot believe I never reviewed this when I first read it. I just recently did a reread, and read all 3 books in the series in about 72 hours. I adore this series and pretty much everything this author has ever written.

Switched is an interesting take on fantasy. AFter all, when you read about trolls, you usually get the picture of how they were described in Harry Potter; grotesque, ugly, huge creatures. Or the Billy Goat's Gruff concept, but these real trolls do not live under bridges and they look largely like you and I.

I had a little bit of trouble because there were some editing slips in this one, but the story was interesting enough for me to overlook them and keep reading. Those who know me realize how huge that is.

If you are a fan of young adult, fantasy or a fan of both then this series will have something for you. There is action, adventure, romance. It really is a must read. Plus, I got to interview the author last year and she just rocks. ( )

I'm willing to be pretty forgiving on paranormal YA stuff, but this was pretty bad. The writing and action were fine, but I couldn't get past the subject. (Trolls? really? awful idea.) This will be perfectly fine for fans of the genre but I'm really picky with paranormal stories.

'Everything felt way too big in this house. With all this vast space between everything, it felt like I was trapped on an island. I always thought that's what I wanted, to be my very own island. But here I was, and I felt nothing but isolated and confused.'

Plot

When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother tried to kill her and accused her of being switched at birth. Although Wendy doesn't believe that she's the monster that her mother claims she is, she has always felt that she doesn't fit in with her family. There's also Wendy's strange ability; she can influence people with her thoughts.

When Finn Holmes appears at her bedroom window, everything changes for Wendy. He reveals the truth about where she came from, and finally everything starts to make sense for her. He takes her to Forening, the home of the Trylle.

Among the Trylle, she is not abnormal, but special. But what makes her special also puts her in great danger from dark forces; and she has more responsibility than she ever expected.


My Thoughts

A few months ago, I spotted this book on offer online and thought about buying it, but for some reason I decided against buying it. When I spotted it in my local library I was eager to read it, and it didn't disappoint me at all.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I thought that the concept was unique and interesting and from the first few pages, I was hooked. I really connected with Wendy and felt for her. She's troubled and awkward and finds it difficult to fit in. So much so that her aunt and brother's lives have been interrupted as they continuously move houses when Wendy changes schools. Wendy just can't seem to stay settled at school, and she hates that her brother, Matt, has given up his dream job to look after Wendy. She is suddenly thrown into a new life, in a place that she didn't even know existed. So much is expected of her, and she must adjust to a new way of life, but she still finds time to be caring towards others which I really liked about her.

I loved Matt's character, although he doesn't appear a lot in the book. Despite his mother claiming that Wendy isn't her daughter, Matt loves Wendy unconditionally. As Wendy's father died when she was young, Matt has taken on the fatherly role, and this clearly shows when Wendy meets Finn and Matt doesn't approve. When Wendy leaves and goes to Forening, Matt is devastated, and his conversation with her when she leaves is heartwarming.

Wendy and Finn's relationship was great to read. Finn is very protective of Wendy and is always there to rush to her aid. Finn was enlisted to protect Wendy, but it's clear that his protectiveness towards her is due to more than just his job. As Wendy tries to adjust to her new life, it's Finn that is there every step of the way to guide and support her.

Extra content

At the end of this edition is a short story called 'The Vittra Attacks.' This story follows Loki, the Prince of the Vittra, as his people plot to kidnap Wendy. This was an interesting short story, giving an insight into the Vittra, and especially the pressure put on Loki by his King, to succeed.

Also at the end of the book is the first chapter from the next book in the series 'Torn.' I won't go into any detail about this, as it will spoil the ending.

Author

This book was written by Amanda Hocking, an American author who writes Paranormal Romance and Young Adult Fiction. This book is the first in the Trylle trilogy, followed by 'Torn' and 'Ascend.' Other series' by Amanda are; The Hollows series, the My Blood Approves series, and the Watersong series. I'm hooked on this series now, and will be be reading the second one soon.
