Torn by Amanda Hocking

Nothing is ever as it seems. This is the first line you see when looking at the back of the book. While this book is still rather enjoyable, I feel like that first line couldn't be more wrong. Maybe the major events in this book would be a surprise to younger readers or to people who don't read much, but I feel like you pretty much know what is going to happen. The book starts off with another bang though this time it isn't a flashback.

Something I greatly enjoyed about the book was that our amazing author describes Trylle's history to us in further detail. I like to hear about the history of the worlds that stories take place in. So this series is not so disappointing in that area as say The Hunger Games, is. I love The Hunger Games but it would have been nice to hear more about Panem and the Capitol. So anyway this book is packed full of forbidden romance, questions of duty and honor, and lots and lots of foreseeable plot twists and turns. And that about sums it up so read the book and enjoy because even if it's not a giant mystery it's still a great book.
