Publisher's Summary

Switched: the first book in the Trylle Trilogy.

When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn't until 11 years later that Wendy discovers her mother might have been right. With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed - a world both beautiful and frightening, and Wendy's not sure she wants to be a part of it.

What the Critics Say

"Vampire and werewolf lovers beware; this trilogy opener offers readers a new take on an unexpected breed of mystical beings. Readers who can suspend preconceived notions and open themselves up to this new interpretation are in for a midwinter version of a good beach read." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Wendy is a flawed antihero, which helps differentiate her from the throng of paranormal-romance heroines, and the potential for development, both dramatic and romantic, should make readers anxious for the next installment of the Trylle trilogy." (Booklist)

    Story
    "I just don't get it. ..."
    What did you love best about Switched?

    I didn't. It was odd yet sort of predictable. ..


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I wouldn't know where to begin!


    What aspect of Therese Plummer’s performance would you have changed?

    The performance was fine!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I hope no one would!


    Any additional comments?

    I have trouble giving books a bad rating because I know what goes into writing it. But this one is so far off.... I just don't see the 'why'!

    "Good."
    Where does Switched rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I don't know. The story is good, but to simple.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Switched?

    I don't think the book has a memorable scene. The story is only good. Is good to listening and anything more.

    "FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!"

    I loved the books. I have never read or listened to a book on trolls but this series was great. Amanda Hocking is a great writer I can't wait to listen to more make sure you buy all 3 books they get better and better each book. And Therese Plummer never lets you down with her great narration. BUY THEM. I hope this helps.

    Story
    "Clearly the First of a Series"

    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.

    Story
    "Love Love this trilogy"
    If you could sum up Switched in three words, what would they be?

    Princess Diaries meets Twillight


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Finn, He seemed so sweet in helping. At times while I was reading I hoped Finn would be the Prince in disguised.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Have a voice to some of the charcters made the book funny in parts.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES YES. This was one book that I could not stop listening to.

    "It was one of the best Troll stories I heard"
    What did you love best about Switched?

    It was intense it talked about switching babies at birth and how it affected the Trill community.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Wendy was my favorite because she wanted to change how the Trill lived and worked together.


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    She was a good reader with voice control on all the characters


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Wendy saw her brother for the first time and found out he was a Main Squeek in the home of her Mother

    Story
    "Good fantasy, unexpected twist."
    Where does Switched rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As YA books go, this one is good. I like it well enough to pick up the next book in the series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Switched?

    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.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Therese Plummer is a good narrator. She helped the story come alive. I would like to listen to her read other books.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Typical teen romance."

    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.

    "makes you root for the troll"
    What made the experience of listening to Switched the most enjoyable?

    Good story coupled with an easy listening performance.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Switched?

    The naming ceremony was so exciting I had to rewind and make sure I didn't miss something.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I become a successful multi tasker listening to my favorite books. Therese Plummer is very easy to follow and understand.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Makes you root for the bad guys
