The Trylle Series by Amanda Hocking

When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn’t until eleven 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.

I think all of the fans of this series are in unanimous agreement that trolls are henceforth amazing.

No, seriously. I’ve come to the conclusion that since I too have dark brown eyes and wild curly brown hair, I must be a troll as well. And no, not trolls in the big ugly green thing sense of the word, but beautiful individuals with superpowers sense of the world. Who wouldn’t wanna be one?

As for the book, well okay, I’ll admit I might have found Wendy a bit annoying and immature, but don’t worry, she grows out of it by the second book. I was glad to see good character development. Also, these books are a lot shorter than most of the other ones I read, but they are still pretty well written with plenty of substance in them.

You know how there’s sometimes that one character who really hasn’t done anything wrong but you still find them sooo annoying? That was Matt (Wendy’s brother) for me. Ugh. Guess who made up for it though?

That’s right. Promise I’m not spoiling anything, but I really really love Loki. He’s smart, he’s sassy, he’s confident, and most importantly, he is hilarious. I loved reading the pages that had him in them.

Also, you should definitely check out The Kanin Chronicles – a spin-off series by the same author that’s just as amazing. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
