Abby thought that after magically escaping the world of bewitching trolls and killer knights her life could go back to normal. Too bad Michael, her stepbrother, has returned from his time underground with more than just terrifying memories; something is happening to him, he’s changing . . . .
Could the person who holds the key to helping him be Abby’s wicked cousin turned troll queen, Sofia? Making a bargain with her could bring on a hefty price. Or is the answer with Wilhelm, Abagail’s first kiss who she betrayed to a death sentence in order to save her school?
For Wilhelm, all seems lost as he waits, plotting and hoping to escape the knights. But are they unknowingly revealing a mystery to him? One that would lead him back to a new weapon, and the girl whose kiss changed everything….
The secret kingdom of the trolls, and those that hunt them, is about to get a lot more deadly.
This is the second in this young adult paranormal series. I believe you really need to have read the first book before starting this one as it continues the story from that one and I suspect anyone jumping straight into this will be a little confused as they’ll have missed out on all the action in that story. Again the heroine of the escapades is Abby, now seventeen years old but still surrounded by mysteries, trolls and knights whilst trying to cope with being a teenager in High School. She and her step brother, Michael, have a much better relationship after surviving their adventures in the first book but he’s changing and so are other people who survived the school encounter, they’re becoming halflings. As Abby bargains with her cousin, Ashlynn, now the troll queen and known as Sofia, there are plenty of other dangers around.
Wilhelm has been imprisoned and tortured by the wicked witch and knight leaders, his stepmother, who has fatal plans for him. Can he get free in time to save himself and protect others? As he puts the clues together can he help overcome the evil schemers? Get ready for a manipulative sea dragon and a lion to have pivotal roles in this fight where you’re not quite certain who is on the side of good or evil – and just when you thought you’d sorted it, it could change!
Another action packed story, this finishes on a real cliffhanger – I really need the next book in the series!
Many thanks to the publishers for gifting me a copy of this e-book. This is my honest opinion after choosing to read and review it.
Wilhelm only saw Abby, safe and sound for a mere second; she’d looked exactly how he remembered, so normal and innocent and yet, he knew she wasn’t anymore… Then Wilhelm had felt it. Something irresistible, a gem from his world had appeared. What in all hades? Something most trolls would kill and slaughter for. So what is it doing appearing here? All his attention was pulled toward it like a cat to catnip. It was in the middle of the road, suddenly appearing in the blink of an eye as he’d watched an overgrown Halfling dive for the gem and then his Abby trying to rescue the kid and not the stone —a dumb human move considering the stone’s value over the Halfling, and so Abby. She ran into the road and he was about to watch the person who’d sentenced him to the knight world die. Yet something inside him rocked, and tore at his insides.
One moment, a truck was speeding toward her and the next, Wilhelm hadn’t known what was coming over himself. This would foolishly expose him before he had a foolproof plan, but he couldn’t help it. Feeling Abby’s emotions and the emotions of every human nearby, he pushed to use it all to propel his body. He shot out fast, past all the other Halflings, past Michael who was almost about to get hit too as another like him, a Halfling named Kayla, was pulling him back and screaming franticly. All of this was going down in the blink of an eye, as Wilhelm pushed to get between the truck and Abigail, with a big vehicle coming toward his flesh.
