Synopsis from goodreads
[box type=”shadow”]When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn’t until eleven years later that Wendy discovers her mother might have been right. With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed – a world both beautiful and frightening, and Wendy’s not sure she wants to be a part of it.[/box]
Well, seriously who doesn’t know the incredible story from Amanda Hocking? She sold selfpublished millions of copies and got an incredible readership just on her own. Then, she made an incredible deal with St. Martins for a new series, but they also published again her Trylle Series. A series people have been excited even before St. Martins came along.Since, I was one of only few people who haven’t read them before, I got the chance to get a copy from St. Martins – together with this wonderful new cover design!
Trylle an amazing new world with new paranormal creatures
We know them all… we all have our favourite Vampire, Werewolve, Fairy Stories. Hey, we even have Dragon stories – but this new world is most definitely something else entirely. And, I found it enthralling, creative and facinating! Together with Wendy, we learn that there is something else out there, we learn that Changelings exist and that they have nothing to do with Faries and more to do with …Nope, I’m not going to spoilt this for you. Anyway, those creatures are not as you’d expect them – they are incredibly beautiful, smart and ..very different! Their soceity is something that feels very frightening to us when Wendy first has to learn the rules..
Wendy – a heroine that you will love and care for.
Wendy never fitted it – nowhere. Not even with her own family. Her mother hatted her guts and she had to leave nearly every school she was. She has a very bad tempter, but that’s not all what’s weird with her. She’s very picky with her food and likes to walk without shoes. And although all this seems like a girl you wouldn’t like to care about, trust me – once you heard Wendy’s story you will love her and care for her deeply just like I did! My heart broke for her – many times during the story!
Wonderful was her brother and her aunt. Both raised her and would do anything for her! This was so touching and sweet, it made up for Wendy’s weird behaviour in the beginning entirely!
Finn – The Perfect Boy to fall for
When you’d decribe the type of boy you love seeing in literature and specially in YA novels. How are they? Mine are always dark, mysterious, strong, posssive and willing to do anything for the girl. Amanda Hocking took all this and created Finn the boy that “finds” Wendy and takes her to the world of Trylle. But due to their differnet status in this world they can’t be together, although they are so very much drawn to each other. And oh Girls, the tension between those two was pehnomal and very sexy at some times! *sighs*
Mysterious New World and A Girl Left in The Dark
Wendy most of the times was left in the dark which made the story so very enthralling and captivating. You simply won’t be able to put it down since we and Wendy were so frustrated all the time that we are left in the dark and never been told anything. However, Wendy grows and I loved following her and discovering all the secrets!
I loved “Switched”, I loved the mythology since it felt fresh and unique. Mysterious new world, stubborn awesome heroine, dark mysterious boy , a love that cannot be and a captivating story full of secrets! I can’t wait to get back in the world of Trylle!
Random Notes and Additional Info: Thankfully, St. Marin won’t torture us and makes us wait forever for the next book! Torn comes out in February and Acent comes out in April! And look at those incredible covers!I have a major cover crush on them!
