Torn by Amanda Hocking

ISBN: 9781447205708
Publisher: Tor
Pages: 352

What happens when everything changes?

Acknowledging that she was different from everyone else wasn’t difficult for Wendy Everly – she’d always felt like an outsider. But a new world and new family is a hard for any girl to accept easily.

Leaving behind the mysterious country of her birth, she is determined to fit back into normal life. But the world she’s left behind won’t let her go that easily. Kidnapped and imprisoned by her true family’s enemies, Wendy soon learns that the lines between good and evil aren’t as defined as she thought. And those things she’d taken for granted may have been lies all along. With the help of the dangerously attractive Loki, she escapes back to the safety of Förening – only to be confronted by a new threat.

It’s time to make a choice – can she put aside her personal feelings for the sake of her country? Torn between duty and love she must make a choice that could destroy her one chance at true happiness.

I received Torn by Amanda Hocking from Macmillan for review. I really enjoyed reading the second book in the Trylle trilogy! My favourite character was Wendy because of her determination and stubbornness. I enjoyed reading Torn more than the previous book, Switched, as you learn more about the Trylle class system as well as their culture and history. I love the cover of Torn by Amanda Hocking! The greenish blue contrasts lovely with the bright orange of the falling leaves, that are signifying the changes taking places with this book.

Available at Amazon.co.uk.

  1. I'm glad to read a review of a Hocking book, after all the publicity about her self-pub success. (I also loved the cover!)
