I guess not all trolls look like this?
I actually think this could get really interesting.
This book felt like the information book though. Like Hocking wanting to build up their whole other part to human kind (troll-world) and wanted to make you ready for the other two books in the series.
Bryn isn’t accepted anywhere.
She is part Kamin and part Skojare, two completely different troll tribes. Being a mix of bloods, she is frowned upon in general and also doesn’t possess any of the power that the tribes have. But she lives among the brunette, brown-eyed Kamin and sticks out like a sore thumb with her blue eyes and blonde hair. She has a dream to be apart of the king’s guard which is a big dream since she is already an outcast and doesn’t have any of the supernatural powers that the tribes have. Presently though, she is considered a tracker.
Bryn is so dedicated to her work that she kind of doesn’t have a life outside of that. She wants to be her best and with her doing that, she doesn’t really have relationships or a good relationship with her parents or just anything extracurricular.
The Kamin tribe drops their high-profile kids off to very rich people to raise them as their own. Then when they are 18, they tell the kids what they truly are, get the trust funds and all the money, and then they rejoin the trolls. The tracker’s job is to get the kids to come with them and make sure the money follows.
Anyway, their is a criminal trying to get to the kids before the trackers do: Konstantin Black. He also tried to kill Bryn’s dad a few years back, so she wants to personally set him on fire basically.
Bryn kind of comes to the conclusion that maybe Konstantin isn’t the bad guy and maybe there is something more to the story (for reasons you will just have to read about).
That’s about it.
I learned a lot about the world in this book and that’s really what makes me want to read the next book. The whole tribes thing and the tension between them makes me feel as if its going to blow up in a horribly great way, the little love story may get interesting with their positions in their tribes, Konstantin BLACK is going to surprise us all and make everything chaotic, just like another gentlemen when the last name Black in another series that is completely off topic (cough Sirius cough). I think it goes without saying that if your last name is Black, you are first thought to be evil and then you are a hero so here’s testing my theory.
In conclusion, there should have been more to the story than world building and some weird love story going on. I am hoping in the next book, I get blown away!
