Amanda Hocking is an indie publishing sensation whose self-published novels have sold millions of copies all over the world. Step into the world of the Trylle, and prepare to be enchanted….
When Wendy Everly first discovers the truth about herself—that she's a changeling switched at birth—she knows her life will never be the same. Now she’s about to learn that there’s more to the story…. She shares a closer connection to her Vittra rivals than she ever imagined—and they’ll stop at nothing to lure her to their side. With the threat of war looming, her only hope of saving the Trylle is to marry a powerful royal. But that means walking away from Finn, her handsome bodyguard who’s strictly off limits… and Loki, a Vittra prince with whom she shares a growing attraction. Torn between her heart and her people, between love and duty, Wendy must decide her fate. If she makes the wrong choice, she could lose everything, and everybody, she’s ever wanted…in both worlds.
As a special gift to listeners, this book contains a new, never-before-published bonus story, “One Day, Three Ways,” set in the magical world of the Trylle.

This book series is definitely in my top 5.
The entire book was memorable.
She did a fantastic job. I believe I have listened to her before in another series and she did very well in it also!
I laughed at times which is always nice!
This second book was as good as the first and you would want to read/listen to it all in one sitting.
I was surprised at how much I liked this series. I picked the first book out just browsing for something to listen to. I enjoyed it so much I ordered the rest of the trilogy and listened to the whole series very quickly. Therese Plummer did a great job with the narration.
I don't have time to sit and read, but I have plenty of time to sit and listen! :)
Most the time there is a dip in book 2 in series. There is a bit of story that is needed to fill the gap. But "Torn" was definitely an improvement to the series.
Wendy is forced away from her human home and taken to another kingdom where she finds that her dad is indeed not dead. Though stunned and happy to find out she has a father, she quickly learns that what he wants her to do with her life was no better than what she left when she ran from her mother.
Rescued and taken home, she is now even more entangled in what she must do to save the kingdom her mother has protected and the lives she has come to know. Now torn between two loves and a man she doesn't love but is obligated to marry, her life is just a bit messy for a princess.
Depends. If my friend was looking for a good story, probably i wouldn't. But I my friend was looking for a book, for just something to listening, I would recommend, because the story is not bad, is just to simple. Is a good distration, if you like books.
Night World: The Secret Vampire - J.L. Smith.
I have just one word: wonderfull.
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
The voices, the meter, the interpretations. They all worked for me!
I'm probably just a sucker, but I love Loki! Not sure if he's a sneaky jerk, or for real. I hope he's for real!
I enjoyed the first book while this one was a little slow and wasn't filled with as much action . Missing the WOW factor.
I would recommend this book to teens and someone looking for a good rainy day book.
I have listened to Therese performance, I believe any narrator that embraces the character/s and makes you feel apart of the book has great talent.
This book should have been listened to all at once. Although the performance was enticing the story line was getting dull and hard to focus on.
i love reading books. I had a child and found that i couldn't hold a book long enough to read, so i started listening to books. It's great!
Love the different character voiceovers. It made you feel like you were really listening to the characters speak.
The whole story left you wanting more.
too many. The whole book was great. I usually just listen in my car but found myself bringing the audiobook in the house and listening to it while the baby was asleep.
Neither really. Just kept me on the edge of my seat.
couldn't get enough. a must for listen for all fantasy lovers. at least as good as the first book
It was an excellent book
When Wendy met her father the King and her true love Loki for the first time
A good command of voice
Because I didn't finish the first book, I didn't want to waste my time on the others. I'm usually good at buying one first then listening. But for whatever reason, I did not do it this time around.
