The Trylle Trilogy by Amanda Hocking

Hello good readers,
I came across this new, budding indie writer, just as she is breaking into traditional publishing. The three books of her Trylle Trilogy captured me from the first few chapters. Here, my friends, is a book about trolls! Yes, trolls! And any book that portrays trolls in a good light, is a book that most definitely goes on my shelf. 

And though the trolls of the castle still turn their noses up at my books, I have noticed a bit of interest on their behalf when they think I'm not looking. Yes, indeed, I'll have them reading soon enough!

Now, if only Miss Hocking would write a book about rambunctious dragons....

I must say, I very much enjoyed these books and applaud her hard work ethics and dedication to her craft. Take a look around her blog and you'll see this young person is very passionate about her work and desires to put out great stories her readers will enjoy. And she does.

By time you finish reading this series, her next one titled Watersong should be ready for release. I plan to grab them up as soon as they're available!

Happy Reading,
The Queen
