Synopsis:
When Wendy Everly first discovers the truth about herself—that she’s a changeling switched at birth—she knows her life will never be the same. Now she’s about to learn that there’s more to the story…

She shares a closer connection to her Vittra rivals than she ever imagined—and they’ll stop at nothing to lure her to their side. 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. But that means walking away from Finn, her handsome bodyguard who’s strictly off limits…and Loki, a Vittra prince with whom she shares a growing attraction.

Torn between her heart and her people, between love and duty, Wendy must decide her fate. If she makes the wrong choice, she could lose everything, and everybody, she’s ever wanted…in both worlds.


Review:

The ending. I did not expected to be that...uh revealing.

A lot of things happened in this sequel. This starts out about a day or two tops after Switched and I am not gonna go that much in depth about the plot but it was amazing. There was many surprises like Tove for example. Yeah never really expected that.

There are a few more characters in this book. Loki being my favorite is insanely handsome and next in line for the throne of the Vittra. Vittra tend to be a more violent than other troll tribes. Their powers lie in physical strength and longevity, though some still have mild psycho-kinesis. While most Vittra are generally good-looking, more than half of their offspring are born as hobgoblins. Loki kidnaps Wendy and holds her as a prisoner for a while and there she discovers the truth about herself.

I was never a big fan of Finn, but he was a real dick in this. I mean, he was the one that pushed Wendy away and still have feelings for her. But if she likes another guy, he should respect that and move on and not be such an arrogant ass about it!

The romance in this was mainly centered on Loki and Tove. Loki being the most. He has both Trylle and Vittra blood and is charming, cocky and a bit of a mystery. He finds Wendy intriguing and infuriating which is totally why I ship them.

Very captivating, entertaining, and full of drama, I loved this sequel and if you haven't read the first book yet, I really recommended you do so.
