Book Review: Torn - Amanda Hocking

Torn
When Wendy Everly first discovers the truth about herself—that she’s a changeling switched at birth—she knows her life will never be the same. Now she’s about to learn that there’s more to the story…

She shares a closer connection to her Vittra rivals than she ever imagined—and they’ll stop at nothing to lure her to their side. With the threat of war looming, her only hope of saving the Trylle is to master her magical powers—and marry an equally powerful royal. But that means walking away from Finn, her handsome bodyguard who’s strictly off limits…and Loki, a Vittra prince with whom she shares a growing attraction.

Torn between her heart and her people, between love and duty, Wendy must decide her fate. If she makes the wrong choice, she could lose everything, and everybody, she’s ever wanted…in both worlds.

4/5 stars (really liked it)
This one picks up right where the last one left off.  I love that we get to know Loki a lot more in this book.  He has a strong attraction to Wendy and her to him but she will not admit it to herself.  Wendy also must learn how to harness her powers so that she is able to protect herself and her kingdom.  Her mother may be dying and she will soon become queen.  We find out more about her family history and what makes her so special and why the Vittra want her so badly.  The little bonus story at the end takes place during the engagement dinner and it's the point of view of Finn, Loki and the groom.  These books are easy to read and well written.
