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)

    "Loved It!"

    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.

    "I like the performance, I don't recommend the book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Switched to be better than the print version?

    The performance of the story was excellent. Unfortunately, I did not like the book. I don't think it would have made a difference for me if I read the physical book or listening to it on audio.

    "Oh. Just no."

    Oh. I am sorry. But I really disliked this book very much. I forced my way through it. I disliked all but 2 of the characters in the entire book. Could not stand the main character right up until the end. Just no. The audio book was well narrated though.

    Would you try another book from Amanda Hocking and/or Therese Plummer?

    NO


    What could Amanda Hocking have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I am not a Romance Fiction reader nor am I a teen-ager so this did not appeal to me.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Therese Plummer?

    yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I thought if I had a young daughter I would let her listen. The book is fine just not my
