Det handler den om:
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

Min mening:
Det første der fangede min interesse ved denne var coveret, som simpelthen bare er så smukt, samt specielt det med for dem der elskede Graceling og Seraphina. Jeg elskede begge bøger. Udover det lyder handlingen jo bare super spændende!

Cécile er en fantastisk hovedperson. Hun er stærk og modig, men kender også sine egne grænser og virker ikke uovervindelig. Tristan kan jeg også rigtig godt lide, og jeg elsker simpelthen sammenspillet mellem de to. Det er så godt, og så sjovt! Jeg elsker også at der ikke er noget insta-love.

Handlingen starter stort set fra første side, allerede med masser af spænding og handling, og der var aldrig en kedelig passage. Den var ikke overfyldt med vilde slåskampe og spænding, som nogle bøger kan være, men der skete hele tiden noget alligevel, så jeg bare måtte læse videre. Så alt i alt var handlingen virkelig god. Jeg elsker den magi der er i bogen, både troldemagien og menneskemagien.

Det eneste dårlige jeg kan sige ved denne bog er at jeg skal vente lang tid på at læse den næste. Øv.
