First off, how great is this cover?! I didn't buy this book, but would have even if it hadn't had been given to me. It's so very alluring.
You know how teenagers tend to feel as though they don't belong and are an alien in their own family? Well usually they are just being all hypochondriacs, but not Wendy, no siree. You see, she belongs to the Trylle (I like to pronounce it Tyrell because I'm a big Game of Throne fan, but whatevs). Anyway, the Trylle are these kind of magical troll beings, who do not look like trolls, but like to switch their children with human babies at birth and have them raised in wealthy and abundant households. Creepy, I know. Once they reach adulthood, they're brought back to the Förening, which is their hometown of sorts. Wendy doesn't want to go, but she does, and she meets some kick-arse characters who help her deal with the life she never knew existed, nor wants.
I quite liked the story line and the characters were all pretty believable and all that good stuff. Quite an easy read, with lots of potential ships. I am back in my hometown, which doesn't really count as a town apparently, more like a village, which I don't even live in, 'cause we have a farm, or two, whatevs. Anyway, the point is that we don't have a library *sobs* but once a week, the mobile library comes and they have the rest of the series and I am trying to get onto them so that they will bring the rest for me. Stay tuned. :)
Got it from: My cousin for my birthday (back in January)
