Book Review: Torn by Amanda Hocking

Acknowledging that she was different from everyone else wasn't difficult for Wendy Everly - she'd always felt like an outsider. But a new world and new family is a hard for any girl to accept easily. Leaving behind the mysterious country of her birth, she is determined to fit back into normal life. But the world she's left behind won't let her go that easily ... 

Kidnapped and imprisoned by her true family's enemies, Wendy soon learns that the lines between good and evil aren't as defined as she thought. And those things she'd taken for granted may have been lies all along. With the help of the dangerously attractive Loki, she escapes back to the safety of Forening -- only to be confronted by a new threat. 

It's time to make a choice -- can she put aside her personal feelings for the sake of her country? Torn between duty and love she must make a choice that could destroy her one chance at true happiness. 

Yes I finished them, all of them in almost one day. Yes you may think I am crazy but these book are just so good. Torn picks up from where it left off at switched. You can go right back into the story, it explains subtile what had happend in switched (in case you didn't read them back to back like it did)
It is a good way of explaining those things so subtle and light cause diving back into a detailed summary of the entire previous book gives you a set back and makes you think like, I already read that.

Well in this book we meet a few new charachters of wich I won't spoil like promissed but there is one charachter named loki on wich I had to laugh. Not because he is so hilarious in the books but because of his name. I couldn't get the image of loki from the avengers out of my head, thats stupid right. Thank god I managed to put that away and create a new charachter in my head that does fit the loki in this book.
So again a page turner for people to enjoy, I can repeat it over and over again but I can only say a must read and stay tuned for a review about the last instalment in the trilogy, Ascend.

2 opmerkingen:

  1. Can imagine that it is a bit weird in the beginning when you read about a Loki, glad you managed to put that awau though when reading.

  2. Hahahahah LOKIIII. I thought about that too when I saw your review :P
