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.
Wow…. so many thoughts and feelings. My biggest one, is WHY DIDN’T I READ THIS SOONER! sheesh! so good…
In this one we are introduced to new and exciting characters, things that were kept from Wendy are revealed, some awesome and major character developments happen in this one. It’s just great.
I enjoyed more of Matt, Wendy’s brother and his role in this, I so enjoyed the tension between Wendy and Finn…. *sigh*
But the biggest development that I really enjoyed was the new character Loki…. *sigh Loki* this new character add a whole set of drama and excitement. I totally fell in love with him at first meeting. seriously. As I was reading I kept finding myself ‘torn’ (pun intended) between him and Finn. This is where the romance part of this story gets…complicated. I love how the author made me want to switch sides. I love wanting more of Loki, I loved everything about him. He is kinds, good, honest, and everything that a swoon-worthy male hero should be. I wanted Finn but I kept silently rooting for Loki.
Overall I really enjoyed this middle book, I was a bit nervous thinking it might have “middle book syndrome” which it does NOT. It keeps you wanting more and I love that.
