For those who have loved Seraphina and Graceling comes another truly fabulous fantasy...
For five centuries, a witch’s curse has bound the trolls to their city beneath the ruins of Forsaken Mountain. Time enough for their dark and nefarious magic to fade from human memory and into myth. But a prophesy has been spoken of a union with the power to set the trolls free, and when Cécile de Troyes is kidnapped and taken beneath the mountain, she learns there is far more to the myth of the trolls than she could have imagined.
Cécile has only one thing on her mind after she is brought to Trollus: escape. Only the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time, wait for the perfect opportunity.
But something unexpected happens while she’s waiting – she begins to fall for the enigmatic troll prince to whom she has been bonded and married. She begins to make friends. And she begins to see that she may be the only hope for the half-bloods – part troll, part human creatures who are slaves to the full-blooded trolls. There is a rebellion brewing. And her prince, Tristan, the future king, is its secret leader.
As Cécile becomes involved in the intricate political games of Trollus, she becomes more than a farmer’s daughter. She becomes a princess, the hope of a people, and a witch with magic powerful enough to change Trollus forever.

I'm pretty choosy when it comes to YA novels and this book reminds me why. The two stars is for the world building but other than that there is little I liked about this book.The h, was a bit of a mess, weak, strong, reckless, cautious, basically all over the place. I never got why she fell in lov...
What can I say about Stolen Songbird, other than the fact I freakin love this book! Once I started reading there was no stopping or turning back, I NEEDED to know how this was gonna play out. Usually a young adult book does not pull me in like this, but this one caught me hook,line and sinker! Every...
Since we are in the last weeks of 2014, I decided it was about time to get my own copy of this book, before there was no more copies to be had...and I was left crying about not having buying it when it was available.... Although apparently this title is going to be reissued by Angry Robot! (it bette...
Gah! I hate when you begin a great series and realize that the other books won't be out for YEARS and YEARS. This was a GOOD one and I want to read on, right now!
