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)
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.
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.
kept my attention but wasn't the best I ever read I will be finishing the series and am looking forward to it
GREAT LISTEN, KEPT ME INTERESTED THE WHOLE TIME.
FIRST THERESE PLUMMER PERFORMANCE
WAS HOPING FOR BOOK #2 BUT THERE WASN'T ONE.
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.
Narrated by a good reader, and a story that kept me coming back.
Find out the truth about her life.
She is easy to listen.
I listen to this book in on sitting.
I am not a Romance Fiction reader nor am I a teen-ager so this did not appeal to me.
I thought if I had a young daughter I would let her listen. The book is fine just not my
should list this as a romantic themed fiction for young girls.
