Wendy’s mother tried to kill her when she was a little girl, so now she is being raised by her aunt and brother. At seventeen years old she still doesn’t fit in and people seem to automatically dislike her; then Finn enters her life and tells her that she is a Trylle. Now Wendy is entering a world she never knew existed and she’s not sure if it is any better than the world she left behind.
Wendy is a complicated character who is dealing with a lot of emotional trauma since her mother tried to kill her and she has so much trouble fitting in with other people. I liked how independent she was and how willing she was to accept the big changes that happened in her life.
Overall this was a fun and engaging read. I loved the creativity of having trolls as the main paranormal element. The characters were all well done and fun to read about. I recommend this book for people who enjoy young adult paranormal books. Just beware that it ends on a cliffhanger without much resolution. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series, Torn (A Trylle Novel).
