I’ll never fight you.

Last but not least, I also dislike how Wendy always thinks of her ‘host mother’, Kim, as a horrible woman and nothing else. This battle is key and we get to see some awesome troll powers at work.

Wasn’t in love with the Queen at first, but wow I felt for her by the third story and I couldn’t believe what she went through and how hard her life was. What a conclusion novel!

Okay, I wmanda your mother trying to kill switchhed is a terrible thing, but why can you still keep blaming her nonstop after Kim had already suffered losing her son Rhys and never got to see him again, had been locked up for years, everyone thinks she’s insane and her older son Matt hates her to boots?

Switched (Trylle #1) by Amanda Hocking

She starts off so unsure and confused; fighting every change happening in her life and yelling at everyone. I also love the turquoise and black because it has a mysterious feel to it.


Bore you to death?

I’m sure there are more than a few people who wish Amanda Hocking had taken the obvious route with her plot, but I for one am so glad she didn’t. Wendy was so damn unlikable. Sara, the Queen, was once Loki’s betrothed; an arranged marriage—until Oren decided he wanted her to be his bride.

We weren’t friends, but he’d been one of the few kids here who had been nice to me. Secondary characters such as Tove and Willa capture my attention much more than the leads: He also acts as hoocking guard. I feel like the author wrote this book about a girl who everyone falls in love with and she apparently gets everyone’s cake and eats it too.

The idea of Finn being a romantic prospect hadn’t crossed Matt’s mind before, and he suddenly tensed up, looking at me with a new scrutiny.

And Rhys – making it some sort of love pyramid? 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.

Hockong good portion is dedicated to character and world building, however the book does not completely suffer from “first book syndrome” it does have its own beginning, middle and end, but I think the rest of the trilogy will be much more action packed with powerful plot twists.

This book centers around the war with the Vittra. And it bothers me that women hociing the ones writing these weak female characters. Also wendy and loki name their child Oliver But wendy also was going to have her first time with Finn so who nows Loki, meanwhile, is earnest and full of hope. I know this is a “young adult” hociing, but since when did young people not deserve good writing? Wendy has three guys in her life, but the person she seemed to want switcged most for the first two books is just kind of there in this one and she’s suddenly deeply in love with someone else.


I just wish there was no insta-love feelings and that things where more mature.

Written quickly, revised quickly, and sold cheaply. Amanad I can assure you, they are well worth it! Sure these scenes are filled with the physical battle, but they also contain the emotions behind the fight. So I did get a bit frustrated with her decisions.

I think, when she said it, she meant it the way parents do when their child behaves appallingly. The night before he has to leave the settlement, he spends snuggling in bed with her—snuggling is all they do. Honestly, I don’t see one side or the other as the “good” side or the “bad” side.

Did I say changeling?

And I already mentioned this above, but I would have liked to see more depth in this book, and series in general. But Amanda, why did you have to write it that way?? The lead character visibly grows in maturity and perspective throughout the course of the two short novels.
