The Trylle series is one that I really didn't want to finish reading as it would then be over which is never good when you get sucked into a series, being only three books long it was a bit better (when you read a 14 book series and then it finishes you don't really know what to do with yourself for a while , until you find something else to read.)
Wendy is getting married in this book to someone she does not love and he does not love he, they are doing it purely to uphold trylle tradition and honor in an arrangement that will keep everyone happy apart from them.
Wendy's mind however is stuck on two men neither of them being her husband, and as the wedding day approaches she has to choose yet again between love and the honor of her people and her family name.
In the meantime an all out war is brewing between the Vitra and the Tyrlle and Wendy has to deal with that as well as her mother is ill and growing weaker by the day.
This book is another action packed installment with even more romance and a great love triangle. All the way through you are changing your mind about how you think the story will and should end but never did I think it would end as it did which is always great because I hate it when I predict the ending of a book.
Although this is a paranormal book as it is about the Trylle (which is a species of Trole that look human) I should add that there is no over the top weirdness about it the only thing that is mystical and strange is the powers that the trylle possess but they are described in a way that is easy to digest so this book would appeal to both paranormal readers and non paranormal readers.
It is also a very easy book to read.
