Trylle Trilogy

A couple weeks ago, I read an article in the New York Times about a self published young adult author, Amanda Hocking, who had sold millions of books before signing a deal with a publishing house. I was interested in seeing what she'd written since she was such a hot commodity to book publishers.

Switched, the first book in the Trylle trilogy, was only 99 cents for my kindle, so I figured it was worth a try. Currently, it's #52 on the top 100 paid books for the kindle. I'm not really a fan of paranormal stories, but I liked Switched. It is what it is though: a fluffy fast read. I quickly bought the next two books, Torn and Ascend, for $2.99 each and flew through them too. The books were worth the $7 I spent on them.

The trilogy is about a teenager who discovers that she is a princess in a kingdom of trolls. Wendy, the main character, doesn't know that she was a troll until one of the trackers from the kingdom came for her. Back with the trylle (the trolls) she is the princess, but doesn't want that responsibility. Wendy's mother, the queen, is aloof and Wendy butts heads with her frequently. Wendy also has other issues: her family from growing up and romantic interests.


  1. I need to read this. I bought Switched but haven't gotten to it. Glad you liked it.

  2. I am actually going to read this book next. I never though I'd dig trolls though, so we'll see how this goes. I keep hearing these books are good.
