By this point I've become a major fan of miss Hocking's writing, having read all books that are currently published. The first book of the Trylle trilogy, Switched, was excellent but the follow-up to it, Torn, was even more captivating with all of the twists in the plot. As always, I couldn't put down the book once I started reading it - the pages fly by and you don't notice the time at all when you're on this incredibly journey with the book's heroine, Wendy. Needless to say, I am beyond anxious for the release of the third volume in this Series!

The character and story evolution was nice within this sequel. I appreciate that a lot of my questions were answered within this work without getting too bogged in description. I liked how Hocking made the main character grow a ton emotionally and mentally without making it feel artificial. Wendy at the end of book two is completely different than the Wendy in the beginning of the book let alone the Wendy I knew and understood in book one. Her evolution made sense though and there is still the flair of someone who doesn't fit anywhere and is using what she's learned to try to force who she is on others instead of conforming. I'm really excited for the close of this trilogy and I hope some of the inane fantasy things don't scare others away. They sound lame in the summaries but Hocking works it in to be less fantastic and more little differences than the blunt space of the summary area allows. While these books are definitely targeted for younger readers, they still have value as light rainy day reading or in between reading for an older audience. While the characters are full of that self centered angst, the writing isn't bad and the characters rein themselves in from self involved ego trips enough to keep them in the likable category. For those who haven't read the first book, no worries all important plot points are summarized and you may enjoy the second without reading the first. Also page wise this book is great value. $3 for about 600pg actual story and it's a bonus that the cover if very attractive both in black and white and on the color back light screen. I was happy with this purchase.

In Torn, the sequel to bestselling novel Switched by Amanda Hocking, which I previously reviewed on the blog, Wendy is slowly growing into her role as Princess of Trylle, the heir to the throne. She is fiercely loyal, brave, and more than anything, she sees all people, human or trylle, as equal. While she still pines over Finn, her bodyguard and fierce protector, she also feels more and more attracted to Loki, who works for the king of Vittra, who is Trylle’s worst enemy. Who I really liked in this book was Tove. He’s great. He’s fun and intriguing, and has so many layers that he’s never once boring. I also liked Emily a lot more, and also Elora, although I still dislike her at times. The characters were just so much more fleshed-out and developed, they really came to life on these pages. I’m a bit disappointed by Finn though. I understand where he’s coming from, but there’s only so many times you can keep on making the same excuses and yet making the same mistakes all over again. I wanted him to give up his daft attitude before Wendy changed him for Loki, but it seems Finn has trouble getting the message. As far as Loki is concerned, I loved him. Right from the start. There’s a lot of chemistry between him and Wendy, and it really shows on the pages. The story, while obviously an inbetween-story for the real climax in book three, doesn’t disappoint. It drew me in from the start. I actually liked it even more than Switched, and I already liked that one a lot. It’s a more mature story, newer and more original than the first in the series. I have no trouble understanding why over a million people bought this series, and where Ms. Hocking’s success comes from. If you love young adult novels, or paranormal romance, or better yet, both, don’t miss out on this series. There’s a reason why it’s so successful – these books are great. I highly recommend them to all fans of this genre.

This book is just too good. I just started reading the Swichted and finished that in two days, then I bought Torn. It is AMAZING!!!!!!!! With Wendy torn between Finn and a new Vittra boy, her love life is all the more complicated and she finds out even more shocking things about her family. Wendy is torn between doing what is right and good for her people and what she wants for herself. There are many shockers in this book that will keep you on the edge of your seat. You will have your mouth hanging open many times because of how great thus book is. This is a must have and you won't be able to put down.

So far both Switched and Torn have had me reeling from cover to cover. I'm not a great editor or english lit nut, but I can say that the book is worth reading! I do not normally read these kind of books, but I thoguht a change would be nice so I tried and love it!

I could not put it down until I finished it. Typos? There were quite a few (ex. "towardd") but I found it more like a fly buzzing in my ear - irritating, but not a deal breaker. There are minor details that bothered me as I read - character reactions that seemed implausible - but to my great surprise, one of the biggest gripes I had turned out to be misleading information. A huge part of the book is a love story, and Hocking is generous with throwing a bone to readers once in awhile. I was very satisfied with the day I devoted to reading this and Switched, and I sincerely cannot wait to read the next one.

This book was decriptive, had great imagery, and an epic romance. Anybody who says that this book or its equally amazing series is bad in any way, they are completely cra-zy! Read and you won't regret it!

My review: The second book in the Trylle series, Torn, is picking up exactly where Switched ended. Wendy is back at home, trying to avoid Matt's questions about her whereabouts when she was gone. Wendy also brought Rhys back at home, a boy who was switched with Wendy when newborn and taken to Trylle. Wendy tries to get settled back at her home, but she can't. She is being kidnapped by Vittra trackers and taken to prison. This is where she first meets her real father and learn more about her mother, past and about her dad. Besides that, she sees Loki again and Loki helps her and her brothers to escape after Tove, Finn and other are coming to save her. Back in Förening Wendy realizes how important her role is and grows with the task. She also understands, that she will have no future with Finn, because Finn is so bound to old traditions and Wendy is like a fresh breath of air wanting to change things. Wendy makes some huge sacrifices of her personal life to step in as a Princess. I have to admit, that somewhere in the middle of this book, the author lost my attention. I kept reading, but there were things on this plot which I did not understand, for example the necessity of Wendy getting married. Besides, Finn appeared to be totally different that I hoped for. The main thing which saved this plot and the story for me, was the character development, which I enjoyed. Characters: I loved Loki! He is hot and sweet and spicy altogether. Besides that dangerous and strong and he literally stole the place of the most well written character in this book! I enjoyed his playfulness and his protectiveness towards Wendy. Tove grew on me even more in Torn. He would be a nice friend to have -loyal, smart, independent, supportive. I liked how he rebelled against the traditions in the first book, and I loved how he did things his own way and helped Wendy pushing through her ideas. I had mixed feelings about Wendy in Torn. In one way, I did understood her sacrifices, at the same time I missed seeing more of the Wendy from the first book, who did things which were good to her. As a character, Wendy grew more responsible, but I think she lost herself in that. Thank god, there was Loki to jazz her up! Generally: Torn was a good sequel to Switched. It was smoothly written and had intriguing characters. I am very curious about how the story ends. Recommended!

This was an amazing book. I didn't know if it could be better than Switched, but I think that it was. I was so enthralled in this book that I found it hard to put it down to do anything else. When I finsihed it, I was almost sad because I have to wait for the next book in the series. This author is so talented. Every book that she has published, I have read, and could not put any of them down until I finished the book. I recommend this book and all the others that she has written to anybody.
