“Amanda Hocking has created a unique tale in this genre that has become extremely crowded with stories from both indie and veteran authors. Torn is fast-paced and will engage you from the very first page.” ―Fiktshun

“An amazing book with lots of thrills. The fast pace will keep you riveted as Hocking deploys multiple twists and turns, and romance abounds.” ―Romantic Times

“Fans of the series will enjoy watching on as Wendy continues to wrestle with issues of belonging...and matters of the heart that will keep readers happily entertained. There is no denying that Hocking knows how to tell a good story and keep readers coming back for more. More is exactly what they will be looking for once they've turned the last page.” ―Kirkus Reviews

Torn is truly a coming of age story for Wendy and because we see her mature and grow into the role of becoming the princess. I highly recommend Torn and give it a 5/5.” ―Do Not Disturb My Books

Torn is the second book in the Trylle Trilogy, and it's definitely the dark middle child. --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.

Amanda Hocking did it again! Another page turner that I simply couldn't put down. Beautifully written, engaging characters and a story-line that didn't stop.

When we leave Wendy at the ending of Switched, she and Rhys are just starting a reunion with a very worried Matt. It's a short reunion though; the Vittra show up, kidnapping Wendy along with Rhys and Matt. They are, of course, rescued and off to Forening they go. Only this time, Wendy has a bit more information under her belt and what she does with it is interesting, to say the least. While at the Vittra Kingdom a new character is introduced, Loki, a devastatingly handsome Vittra with a devil-may-care attitude who seems to care a little too much for Wendy.

Back at Forening, Wendy begins to hone her power under the tutelage of Tove Kroner; her odd and loyal friend. Willa remains a loyal friend, helping Wendy dodge one Faux pas after another, not to mention keeping her hair under control and Finn, SIGH, Finn, Finn, Finn... Finn is duty bound to protect Wendy, and that he does. He will protect her from anyone & everyone including theirselves.

Danger and suspense lurks, the Vittra are dangerous and powerful and they want Wendy...BAD. There are some Trylle who think its Wendy's fault that the Vittra are targeting them and a quick fix would be to turn her over and there are others who feel that Wendy is the one who will save them all. She is the one Trylle who is special; with special powers that will make her the best leader in Trylle history.

Wendy's character develops beautifully; she takes on her responsibilities Wendy style. The people in her life become more developed as the story moves along and there is a closer look into the interpersonal relationship between herself and Elora that is both touching and heart-breaking.

Torn by Amanda Hocking
Book Two of the Trylle series
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Publication Date: February 28, 2012
Rating: 4 stars
Source: Review copy sent by the publisher

Summary (from Goodreads):

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.

What I Liked:

Ahhh, this book was good. I so enjoyed it. I liked the first book, Switched, but this book is exactly what a sequel should be like, exactly how the second of a three-book trilogy should function. So much more makes sense, and I feel like so much more has been solidified.

Wendy runs away from her mother's palace in Minnesota, and goes back home to Matt and Maggie... with Rhys. Only to be captured by the Vittra, putting herself, Rhys, and Matt in danger. She meets Loki, the Vittra prince, who isn't who she thought he would be. He lets them escape, then gets caught by Elora, but never tries to capture Wendy.

Although I thoroughly enjoyed reading her books, I had to wonder if anybody edited the books for missing words or the random addition of words that didn't need to be there. It certainly annoyed those of us that read and quickly pick up poor editing skills...did they even read it carefully???

For me, the Tryllogy is not so much about individual characters, but about the intricate rules, customs and class structures that keep the Tryll culture intact. Everone is born to their class, which defines their role. The Queen rules, the Marksinna scramble for power as they serve her and the peasants, Trackers and Mansklig are at the bottom. Even when they need al hanss to fight the Vittra, Forenning can't break down class barriers. I found it especially funny that among the Marksinna, Trylle powers and heritage are supposed to be all that count, but status is actually determined by one's popularity with the Queen, popularity overall and wealth. (Not that anyone would dare to point this out.)
Wendy is new to Trylle society, but custom dictates that she must rule even if she is unqualified to do so. (Of course she rises to the challange -- it's her moment for growth into adulthood -- but she doesn't give even the appearance of being fit to lead until nearly the end of the Tryllogy.)
I rather like the fact that Forenning has been running just as it always did until the war crisis with the Vittra forces the citizens to re-examine themselves. They scam millions of dollars from human inheritances and pile up rooms full of toys and luxury goods they barely understand, and then discover that they have become stagnant and weak. Imagine that! Only Wendy, an outsider, dan see the reforms that are needed.
I'll be honest. This Grumpy Old Man bought the Trylle books mainly to see what all the fuss was about. How did Ms Hocking make so many passionate fans so fast? The Teen-Drama romance stuff frankly didn't interest me. I found the Trylle society interesting and even plausible. I din't think Ms. Hocking gets nearly enpufh credit as a social and political observer.
