Torn (Trylle, #2)Torn by Amanda Hocking
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the second installment of the Trylle trilogy Torn we find Wendy, well torn. She is torn between her life in Forening, and the life she had back in the human world. She is torn between the love she found in Finn; a man of different social status, and thus off limits, and the growing attraction she has to Loki a mortal enemy, thus making him off limits too, Then, she finds out she is the daughter of Forening’s mortal enemy, and her dad is evil. Talk about daddy issues. What does she do? What choice does she make? You will have to read to find out
But…
Here’s what I think. I don’t think social status should be so important. She is troll royalty (never thought I would say that in the same sentence), so what. What if Finn is the right guy for her? Her sense of duty could keep her from the love of her life. I get Hocking was trying to portray the need for social order, but at the expense of love, why?
Finn was a jerk. Yes, he was just trying to do what he thought was best, but he did not have to be so mean to Wendy. I was rooting for Finn and Wendy. Not so much anymore. She is better off with Tove. I don’t know if you can tell, but I have gotten emotionally attached to Wendy’s love life.
In terms of writing and the story line it was entertaining. Amanda Hocking kept me on the edges of my seat and I can’t wait to read Ascend.
