*This is not the first book in the series so synopsis may contain spoilers*
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 master her magical powers—and marry an equally 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 readers, this book contains a new, never-before-published bonus story, “One Day, Three Ways,” set in the magical world of the Trylle.
This story was a great addition but I couldn’t help but get that similar middle book syndrome from it.
Starting with the fact that the pace was kind of off for me. I didn’t dislike it or anything but a major event happened at the beginning of the story and then the rest was just build up for the next book. It was enjoyable and helped provide development and such but it was definitely of a much slower pace.
As I said this book definitely provides more development and growth. With this installment, we learn so much more about Trylle, Vittra’s and pretty much anything that has to do with this world. I really enjoyed the more in depth background on the world as well as the development of the characters.
This book we definitely had more of a look at Wendy and I found myself liking her more this time around. She still had those odd annoying moments but for the most part her growth definitely showed through and played a part in this story.
Overall I really didn’t dislike this book but it felt more like a filler for the final.
