17 year old Wendy is a girl with a past. Her mother called her a devil child and tried to kill her when she was 6, never believing Wendy was her child. Now in high school she’s an outcast with no friends and only her Aunt Maggie and her brother, Matt, for family. She does have one gift to her advantage, though, she can persuade people to do as she wants. When Finn a strange newcomer comes to her high school, Wendy finds out the truth of her unique parentage and her eyes are opened up to the world of the Trylle, a clan of trolls, earthy people with physical and mental abilities.
I’m doing the full trilogy in this review of Switched, Torn and Ascend. If I give any more information in the summary I could really ruin the awesomeness that is the Trylle Trilogy. These books are so interlinked you have to read them all back to back. The main characters are really what make this story. They are flawed, fun and very strong personalities. I really connected with the young heroine and wondered if I was in fact a troll in my younger years. When we first meet Wendy, she is a dysfunctional teenager and by the end of the story she is a strong and formidable woman with gifts and talents. There are some books you are sad when they end but you are happy to see how it works out for the characters. This is one of those books. I give these books 5/5 Nerds for the action, adventure and romance.
