It is clear from the beginning that this book is not a standalone story.
This episode sets up the story, asks the questions, answers some and leaves many to be answered. Adventure, romance and an interesting twist on fantasy characters with trolls as the main characters.
I love listening to Therese Plummer. Her understated narration and character interpretations are always enoyable.
I am looking forward to the next two books in the Trilogy.
Really cool trolls!
The reservation Plummer is my favorite narrator for the Site. I love all of the books she narrates, and she brings a certain amount of real life to the story! If I could choose which narrators read the books I listened to, Therese Plummer would always be my number 1!
The story was a far stretch, thats true, but the author managed to spin it in the right way that it seemed nearly believable. At first, when the author had the main character leaving the real world to go to the trylle, it was laughable because I want able to wrap my head around it. But once the character was fully immersed into the trylle community, it was so much easier to believe. I loved it! I want waste time writing for the other two books, so I will just say that what I said here stands for all three trylle books!
Princess Diaries meets Twillight
Finn, He seemed so sweet in helping. At times while I was reading I hoped Finn would be the Prince in disguised.
Have a voice to some of the charcters made the book funny in parts.
YES YES. This was one book that I could not stop listening to.
I could not stop listening. I was shocked at all the twists and turns and mesmerized by the characters.
It was intense it talked about switching babies at birth and how it affected the Trill community.
Wendy was my favorite because she wanted to change how the Trill lived and worked together.
She was a good reader with voice control on all the characters
When Wendy saw her brother for the first time and found out he was a Main Squeek in the home of her Mother
As YA books go, this one is good. I like it well enough to pick up the next book in the series.
The way Wendy keeps trying even though life appears to have failed her many times, beginning with her nutsy mother. On the whole, I was not enamored with Wendy, but hopefully she matures in subsequent books.
Therese Plummer is a good narrator. She helped the story come alive. I would like to listen to her read other books.
The story was interesting enough that I finished it, and will probably catch at least the next sequel, but I did not care for Wendy. She was too moody, shallow and changeable for my tastes.
This is not one of those Young Adult titles that crosses over well for adult readers. Although it has paranormal characters, it's basically boils down to a flimsy romance and doesn't have much to really grab an adult reader's attention and hold it.
Good story coupled with an easy listening performance.
The naming ceremony was so exciting I had to rewind and make sure I didn't miss something.
I become a successful multi tasker listening to my favorite books. Therese Plummer is very easy to follow and understand.
Makes you root for the bad guys
My son Noah set up my account But my name is Robin and I read like crazy, I am either reading a book or listening to one. Audio Addict!
I usually dont listen to books twice. but i might when #3 comes out and listen to the story line all together.
When she goes to find her brother matt. and when she kissed finn. rooting for those two.
She is an excellent reader, ALL authors should get her to read their books. She is amazing, one of the reasons I choose the book. It can be a great book but if you cant stand the reader it wont get listened to. You forget that there's ONE PERSON READING THE BOOK AND REALLY GET CAUGHT UP IN THE STORY, EVERYONE COMES TO LIFE WITH THERE OWN VOICE.
Just made me smile and kept me guessing. Just when you think you have figured out the way things are going to play out , something else changes and you have to keep listening!! good thing i listen while doing house work or nothing would ever get done.
Good story, great reader, bring on number #3 and keep the good books coming!!
I've never read one of Amanda Hocking's novels before, and I must say that I really enjoyed this one. Although there are some common romantic themes which tend to dominate all gothic novels these days, this one at least deals with a fresh variety of beings from a unique society that has not been done to death in the mould of vampires and werewolves. Theresa Plummer does a competent job with the narrative and it kept me interested and entertained.
