My Review

While browsing through my local book store, I came across the first book in this series, Switched. I was taken aback by the beautiful colors of the cover. I read the back and thought to myself "this sounds like a great book," so I gave it a try. I was automatically hooked. The Trylle Trilogy is a great series. This final novel in the series, Ascend, was honestly one of my favorite. Wendy finally came into her own skin, realizing she must be queen and knowing her responsibilities to the thrown and her people. Tove realizes he can no longer live a life that's a lie. War rages on between the Trylle and the Vittra and only Wendy has enough power to stop it. The love triangle between Wendy, Loki and Finn finally comes to an end. Wendy follows her heart and makes her final decision to whom she wants to be with. In the end the book carries a short story about what happens afterwards, which was really fitting. I really enjoyed this series. Amanda Hocking made a world that most people would love to live in. If you are not familiar with this series, you must check it out! I'm glad I did.
