Switched: the first book in the Trylle Trilogy.
When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn't until 11 years later that Wendy discovers her mother might have been right. With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed - a world both beautiful and frightening, and Wendy's not sure she wants to be a part of it.

"Vampire and werewolf lovers beware; this trilogy opener offers readers a new take on an unexpected breed of mystical beings. Readers who can suspend preconceived notions and open themselves up to this new interpretation are in for a midwinter version of a good beach read." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Wendy is a flawed antihero, which helps differentiate her from the throng of paranormal-romance heroines, and the potential for development, both dramatic and romantic, should make readers anxious for the next installment of the Trylle trilogy." (Booklist)
I had already read Switched and the next two books in the trilogy, Torn and Ascend, and they had drawn me in and made me completely addicted, I was excited to read the third book i sat and wouldn't move till i had read the entire thing.
But Switched definitely drew me into this whole world straight away, I enjoyed the characters and their relationships, no one in this book is perfect, they all have flaws, and in some cases a lot of flaws, but you still relate to them and still feel for them.
The actual story line was very addictive, i was never sat there thinking i could just put this down for a bit and pick it up later as its dragging on now, I was always completely adamant that i could read another paragraph, another page, another chapter.
This was such an amazing novel!! The plot was great. The book like most novels, starts off abit slow but it soon gets more interesting to the point where you just want to keep on reading. I fell in love with some of the characters and I wished at one point that I've lived in their world. The narrating was really good, she brought the characters to life. I believed they were real. Overall, I would definitely recommend you reading this novel by Amanda Hocking. You will not be disappointed, I promise you.
