Publisher's Summary

Cast out by her kingdom and far from home, she's the Kanin people's only hope. Bryn Aven - unjustly charged with murder and treason - is on the run. The one person who can help is her greatest enemy, the gorgeous and enigmatic Konstantin Black. Konstantin is her only ally against those who have taken over her kingdom and threaten to destroy everything she holds dear. But can she trust him?

As Bryn fights to clear her name, the Kanin rulers' darkest secrets are coming to light... and now the entire troll world is on the brink of war. Will it tear Bryn from Ridley Dresden, the only guy she's ever loved? And can she join forces with Finn Holms and the Trylle kingdom? Nothing is as it seems, but one thing is certain: an epic battle is underway - and when it's complete, nothing will ever be the same....

Content not for young readers

Book was good but with the language and sex I would not say it is suitable for young readers. It is listed for ages 11-13 but the content is not appropriate for 5-8 graders.

Amazing

This is when everything goes down in the series. As you read through the book, you worry for Bryn and if everything will turn out right for her, leaving you hooked until the end. I love the Kanin Chronicles and I recommend this trilogy.

Uncertain But Not Unhappy

There is lots of death and chaos in this one. Usually I like that, but I struggled with this story more than the others.

The end felt a bit abrupt to me, but it’s reasonably thorough, which means it was probably just me.

The narration is still excellent.

Great storyline.

Kept me wanting more. It was hard to stop listening even after 3 hours. Sad that the series is over. Will definitely be looking for more from Amanda

Only Okay

I was so sick of the how many times the author used the word "sorry" we got it from the beginning that is was the Canadian pronunciation. I felt bad for Eileen Stevens to have keep saying the word.

Great except...

I only had 2 problems:

1) I thought the fact that Ember died was a terrible choice.

2) Astrid Equell's death was also bad in my idea not because she died but how.

I enjoyed my time in the Kanin Chronicles

All in all, I liked the series (three books as far as I know at this time) and enjoyed my time with Bryn Aven. The story moved along at a good pace, created characters and a world that was well rounded and interesting. The plot was well developed, intriguing and provided a satisfying ending for this story arc I wouldn't terribly mind taking another adventure with Bryn!

Good story but disappointing delivery

I love Amanda Hocking stories and these don't disappoint. What was a struggle was the narrator who mispronounced the name Niamh in all three books and spent much of the story either using the same accusatory voice for the main character or making the males voices sound as if they all had a cold and were rather dumb. I will read her books now rather than listen to them if this narrator is used for future novels.

Amazing story!!!

One of the best books I've listened to and it's such a good book and the way that it's written and the characters you can get lost in the world I would absolutely recommend this book.
