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.

"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)
found the entire premise of the series messed up... I didn't even finish it because I just couldn't get past the whole swapping out kids for fortunes.
I didn't. It was odd yet sort of predictable. ..
I wouldn't know where to begin!
The performance was fine!
I hope no one would!
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'!
I don't know. The story is good, but to simple.
I don't think the book has a memorable scene. The story is only good. Is good to listening and anything more.
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.
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.
