Cécile has only one thing on her mind: escape. But the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time…

Thoughts

This book came highly recommended by many YA book bloggers and I wasn't sure about a story on "trolls" and to my amazement, this is a delightfully fun read! There wasn't a scene when my heart didn't race in excitement.
 

What I Liked
What I enjoyed most from this book are the characters. They are relatable, warm, and well developed. They make you care about their problems and you ache to help them. My second favorite is the captivating story telling. The writing is action packed and full of drama and intrigue. The plans were well thought out and you just want to root for the prince; you want him to get the girl, see him defeat his father, wish for him to see his plans come to fruition.


What I Did Not Like
I cringed a little at the ending. It felt rushed and lacked creativity. If it could stretch a few more pages... if the plans for the second book is hinted a little more in the last few pages...

Overall

This book made me very happy. Truly elated. This is how a true fantasy should be. It is exciting. Refreshing. Full of possibilities. I'm looking forward to more works from Danielle L. Jensen. Astounding story writer!
