Bryn Aven is an outcast among the Kanin, the most powerful of the troll tribes.
Set apart by her heritage and her past, Bryn is a tracker who's determined to become a respected part of her world. She has just one goal: become a member of the elite King’s Guard to protect the royal family. She's not going to let anything stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance with her boss Ridley Dresden.
But all her plans for the future are put on hold when Konstantin– a fallen hero she once loved – begins kidnapping changelings. Bryn is sent in to help stop him, but will she lose her heart in the process?
My Rating: 5 Stars
I've been a fan of Amanda Hocking ever since I read My Blood Approves. I read the Trylle series in its self-published form, and I was excited to re-enter the world of trolls with The Kanin Chronicles.
Bryn is a likeable character. She's strong, driven, stubborn, and reluctant to admit her feelings for her boss, Ridley. Unlike the Trylle, the Kanin live in colder climate of Canada. It was interesting to discover Bryn's world and note the differences between the troll kingdoms. And kingdoms they are, as they live by a regimented class system.
Someone is taking the changlings, and it's up to Bryn and the other trackers to discover who it is and stop them. This very much read like a cat and mouse chase, and as the reader, I was often questioning, "Who is the cat and who is the mouse?" I look forward to learning more in book 2, and I can't wait to continue on Bryn's adventure, see if she ends up with Ridley (I hope so!), and figure out watch as the pieces of the conspiracy come together, because right now, I have no idea what to think.
I highly recommend Frostfire. It was a quick, enjoyable read.
Reading is Power
Before I was an author, I was an avid reader. I absolutely adore books and getting lost in the worlds that other people create. I love to discuss books, too. Feel free to leave comments. :-)
