deaths,loathsome villains and heartbreaking romance and you have an excellent novel Bryn is on the run,falsely accused of murder and treason and finds an unexpected ally in the face of Konstantin Black.Together they try to gather support to defeat the Kanin Queen and save the troll world from unnecessary bloodbath.From snowy Doldastam and underwater Storvatten to the Omte swamps and Forening to our beloved Trylle,Bryn fought hard to keep the people she loves safe and serve her kingdomThere is no such thing as good war,Bryn.Good people will die.Innocent lives will be destroyed.And in the end,one unfit person will still hold the crownI fought and cried and laughed and loved with Bryn throughout this series,and Crystal Kingdom was a suitable conclusion.So fast paced and breathtaking,with plot twists and agony,it led to a battle of wills,a battle between greed and devotion,lust for power and duty.I am so glad it was longer than the previous books but still it was not enough There were so many characters I loved like Tilda and Linnea and Konstantin,and I can t even begin to describe my joy from Finn s important part in the plot and Wendy and Loki s appearances,they triggered some serious fangirl moments I m trying to come to terms with the unfortunate events that happened,and even though I was devastated I understand the reasons behind them.It doesn t make them less painful though.Amanda Hocking did an amazing job sucking us in the troll world,she played with our minds and emotions like a skillful puppeteer,but everything ended the way it was supposed toI came back for you because you re all I ve ever wanted or needed,because I want to be with you alwaysAww Ridley.So many butterflies in my stomach,so many scenes that made my poor heart melt according to Amanda the dance scene between Ridley and Bryn was written to this song and it s so perfect,it may or may not be my ringtone.He went through some serious stuff that made him cold and distant for a while,but the longing and the love was palpable when he and Bryn were together.Bryn finally realised that love is not a weakness,not something to fight but a source of strength and she embraced that realisationLove made me stronger.I would do anything to save Ridley.I would do everything I needed to doAnd Amanda Hocking did everything she needed to do to give us an amazing book I will cherish deeply.P.S.I accidentally mentioned to some friends of mine that I m in love with a couple of trolls and now they want to buy me this for my upcoming birthday.Socializing sucks Right off the bat, I wanna admit that I had no idea this was part of a trilogy when I requested it from NetGalley I just saw Hocking s name and clicked it immediately.In my defense, there was no mention of previous books in the description, so I just assumed this was the start of a new series And you know what happens when you ASS U ME something You end up with marshmallow fluff, hardening at an unbelievably rapid

when you ASS U ME something You end up with marshmallow fluff, hardening at an unbelievably rapid rate, all over the inside of your microwave Amirite What Was there another analogy or something My point is, I went into this with a lot of missing backstory A Lot.But I will give Hocking credit, I felt like she did a great job recapping the other stories, and I didn t feel as lost as I could have By the end, I think I had a pretty good grasp on the overall plot of the other two books The problem was, I didn t care much for the actual plot.It wasn t bad, just middle of the road But, by the end, I just wanted to be finished with the book, so I could tick it off my to do list Again, this could quite possibly be because I wasn t fully invested in the outcome of these characters, due to not having read the first two of books And I haven t read her Trylle trilogy, either Some of the characters from those books appear in this one, since this appears to be a spin off from that world I said that to say this, fans of those books may find this one to be muchinteresting than I did.So, there s a Troll world living within our world And they re split into several different kingdoms.Bryn is a high ranking tracker from one of them, but because of events that have transpired in the other books, she s been framed for treason murder, which has landed her on the kingdom s Most Wanted list.In order to save her friends, family, and true love, she ll need to find out who is really responsible for the conspiracy She teams up with unlikely allies, forms unlikely friendships, uncovers secrets, and tries to save the day Ta da Having not read the other books, I don t feel right rating this lower than 3 stars, but I m not going out of my way to recommend this one to anyone, either ARC provided

St Martin s GriffinPublication Date August 4, 2015Rating 4 starsSource ARC sent by the publisherSummary from Goodreads Bryn must decide follow her head or her heart Thrown into a world of suspense and intrigue, Bryn now has to fight to clear her name But she s not alone With help from the Trylle including Finn Holmes she s on a quest to discover the truth.With her life and her world on the line, will Bryn be able to risk it all What I Liked Possible spoilers if you have not read Frostfire or Ice Kissed But I think I kept things vague enough about this book particularly You re on your own, in terms of books one and two.I rather enjoyed this book I had hoped that this book would be a bit better than the previous book, Ice Kissed, which I gave three stars I found that one to be a little boring, which wasn t a problem with this book This one was nearly a hundred pages longer than the other two books, but the length didn t show at all This one picks up right where Ice Kissed left off Bryn is on the run, as she is a wanted person in Doldastam, among the Kanin tribe She flees, and is tracked down by none other than Konstantin Black She and Konstantin work together to try and rally support from other kingdoms, but it isn t easy at all They will have to turn to unexpected sources for help, as well as fight on their own for what they lost and what they will lose.This conclusion was one of high energy, but a slow build high energy It felt like another novel in the series, but it was clear that the stakes were very high throughout the book I kind of liked how Hocking set this up The pressure didn t feel super high, though it really was War is brewing from Kanin, and the danger is inescapable Bryn is on the run and needs amnesty and an army, but she doesn t want to take on the very people of her home, her fellow Kanin trolls So much is at stake, but something must be done about the deception and false accusations and schemes and betrayals in the Kanin royalty.Bryn is such a kickbutt character I mean, a lot of YA heroines are kickbutt in their own way, but Bryn is physically and mentally and emotionally strong She is constantly steeling herself for difficult decisions, or trying to save everyone And when she s frustrated, she does push ups Sometimes she runs laps too, but push ups That s hardcore And she proves herself to be a kickbutt character over and over, taking on the Omte giant ogres head on, protecting her loved ones, even fighting with and for Konstantin Black.I feel like I understand Konstantin , after reading this book He was made out to be a villain in Frostfire, which he kind of is he tried to kill Bryn s father But we find out that, as he said throughout the series upon meeting Bryn in unfortunate circumstances , things aren t as they seem, and Bryn doesn t know everything that is going on in I felt bad for Konstantin, though he isn t innocent by far The plots and twists in this book are surprising and shocking and not too predictable, which is good I didn t see most of them coming I love the direction Hocking takes the story, with all the traveling and visiting the different kingdoms and whatnot We get to see some characters from the Trylle trilogy, like King Loki who has not changed a bit and Queen Wendy, Finn Holmes and his wife and kids Remember, this Kanin series is occurring like six ish years after the Trylle trilogy.The story is very engrossing and I never felt bored as I was reading I had no problem zipping through the 400 pages I love Bryn s character, the strength of her personality I liked Konstantin he becomes a friend to Bryn, even though he was once her enemy Other character pop back into the story, like Ridley, Tilda, and Finn Ridley isn t as present in this story, but when he is, emotions leak off the page All kinds.Which leads me to the romance Bryn spends about a third of the book missing Ridley, feeling pain every time she thinks of him She doesn t know that he was taken and tortured after she escaped When he and Tilda find Bryn, he seems cold and distant It s his own way of dealing with what happened to him, but it hurts Bryn Nevertheless, I like their relationship, despite the obstacles in this book They grow stronger even as they hurt each other and come back together and hurt each other and come back together There are one or two hot scenes in this book, prepare yourself There is NO LOVE TRIANGLE Konstantin never was a romantic player in this book I saw someone say something about that, and I can t agree with the statement There is no love triangle Konstantin and Bryn develop a strong friendship, but Bryn has no romantic feelings for Konstantin The ending is slightly sad there is a shocking death, though I somewhat expected that person to die , but it s a satisfying and happy ending overall Like I said, there is a big death, and other people die too, but I think the ending is a good one I like the ending a lot This series ends so well.What I Did Not Like I wish for a happier ending for some people, but they ended up dead, so I guess they can t get their happy ending But that happens in books involving war, especially in conclusion novels The deaths didn t bother me too much though I just wish a certain character or two could have gotten a nice ending Maybe death is a nice ending though.Would I Recommend It I liked this book a lot Frostfire might be my favorite, or maybe this one The series stumbled a tiny bit with Ice Kissed, but overall, the series was great I enjoyed the Trylle trilogy too, and this spin off series did not disappoint Interesting take on trolls and changelings Rating 4 stars Hopefully I ve not only kept this review vague, but I ve also somehow convinced you that this is a great book and a wonderful conclusion novel Not an easy review to write But a great book about which to write a review I m interested in seeing what Hocking has next for readers
