Publisher's Summary

Beneath the mountain, the king's reign of tyranny is absolute; the one troll with the capacity to challenge him is imprisoned for treason. Cecile has escaped the darkness of Trollus, but she learns all too quickly that she is not beyond the reach of the king's power. Or his manipulation.
Recovered from her injuries, she now lives with her mother in Trianon and graces the opera stage every night. By day she searches for the witch who has eluded the trolls for 500 years. Whether she succeeds or fails, the costs to those she cares about will be high. To find Anushka, she must delve into magic that is both dark and deadly. The witch is a clever creature, and Cecile might not just be the hunter. She might also be the hunted.

Love this story but.....

I wanted to SCREAM at the characters for not figuring out the "plot twist" when I did. Seriously frustrating when you figure out what's going on half way thru the book and everyone else is clueless. With all that being said... I still do enjoy this story. Like with a lot of second books this one was a bit slow and felt like a really big build up for book 3. I will definitely be reading that when it comes out:)

Predictable but good

Called the plot twist pretty early but the actors were marvellous! worth a listen but maybe not a repeat.

fantastic!

I have swiftly fallen in love with this series but now dread listeners to the final installation as it will be the last!
I did however guess who Anushka was right at the very beginning of the very first book, call it writers hunch!

Some parts needed more

Not as good as the first book. I was disappointed that there wasn't more written about why anoshka? Had trapped the trolls.

Frustrating

I will say before I start this that I'm 28 yrs old and haven't been a fan of YA fiction in a long time. 

Now. Let's begin. First, I enjoyed the first book and was drawn in to buy the other two. The second book got on my nerves and the final book was an great effort to finish. If you like books that are so frustratingly repeativiely melodramic and reflect the inner turmoil of teenagers, then this book is for you. If like me, you don't, don't read this. 

The main characters make ENDLESS plans that endlessly NEVER EVER work out!!!!!! And I mean never. The character monologue is repeative because the plot is repetitive. About the only good thing about the last two books was the ending of the third book because it was over but it also wasnt too bad an ending. 

So they're teenagers so maybe that accounts for the fact that NOTHING ever goes right in this series and they're ALWAYS repeating themselves, but from an adult's perspective enough's enough. 

I hope Tristan and Cecil are better concoctors of plans in eternity because I don't have the time to stick around to find out.

P. S. I understand that people have enjoyed this series and I'm being a fair bit melodramic myself, but I have been honest in my struggle to finish these books. My opinions about reviews is always to read less of them and go with what you like and enjoy. If you think you might enjoy these books, forget you read this and let the drama begin!!
