Amanda Hocking- Torn


          Torn is the sequel to Amanda Hocking’s Switched. Princess Wendy is torn between the Trylle and the Vittra kingdoms and between Finn, her mysterious bodyguard, and Loki, the Vittra prince.

In Torn, Hocking masters the classic love triangle which reminds me of one of my mother’s favorite songs; Glenn Frey’s “The One You Love.”  

“Are you gonna stay with the one who loves you

Or are you goin’ back to the one you love?

Someone’s gonna cry when they know they’ve lost you

Someone’s gonna thank the stars above.”

            According to Trylle law, Princess Wendy can never marry the one she truly loves because Finn is considered a “lowly tracker.” Like magnets, they’re drawn to each other but each time they’re close, Finn yanks back. On the flip side, Loki openly professes his love for her, which Wendy doesn’t accept. Things become even more complicated when Wendy’s mother, Queen Elora, asks her to marry a man Wendy never considered. Therefore Wendy is torn between three options: to chase after the man she loves but can never have; to flee the kingdom with the man who loves her; or marry a man who she’ll never love for the sake of the kingdom.

I enjoyed Torn just as much as Switched and cannot wait to start Ascend.
