Bryn Aven is an outcast among the Kanin, the most powerful of the troll tribes.
Set apart by her heritage and her past, Bryn is a tracker who’s determined to become a respected part of her world. She has just one goal: become a member of the elite King’s Guard to protect the royal family. She’s not going to let anything stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance with her boss Ridley Dresden.
But all her plans for the future are put on hold when Konstantin– a fallen hero she once loved – begins kidnapping changelings. Bryn is sent in to help stop him, but will she lose her heart in the process?
I really enjoyed the first book of Amanda Hockings Trylle trilogy that I really should finish. So being stuck in an airport I saw this book and decided to try it out. I LOVED IT!
I really liked seeing the world from the Trylle trilogy expanded. We get more insight on the other groups, not just the Kanin tribe. We get a complete backstory and history of this group and it was brilliantly done! Something new and creative. Plus you get to see some characters from the original Trylle trilogy peak in. Bryn an outcast in the tribe due to the fact that she is only half Kanin. She is a tracker but her her biggest desire is to become part of the King’s Guard and does everything she can to prove herself to everyone that she is Kanin and that she is part of them and what she deserves to be part of the King’s Guard. However, when young changelings who are about to be taken back to their Kanin families, keep getting kidnapped, things take a turn for the worse. Then Bryn finds out that the man kidnapping them once tried to kill Bryn’s father and was once Bryn’s idol.
