Book Review #336 - Torn (Trylle #2) by Amanda Hocking

Torn (Trylle, #2)
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.

My Rating: 4/5
This is the sequel to Switched.
This book was equally as good as the first one. It wasn't as strong with plot but it made up for it with character development.
The one thing I didn't really believe was Matt's ability to just go with it when he didn't know what was going on. I understand that some people are like that, but it just didn't fit in with his whole protective older brother persona.
I liked how the Vittra are now more personally involved in the story. Although I did predict this before it happened. The whole idea of Trylle politics is explored very thoroughly.
In terms of romance, there seems to be a love square developing which I am not sure if I like the idea of or not.
