For five centuries, a witch’s curse has bound the trolls to their city beneath the mountain. When Cécile de Troyes is kidnapped and taken beneath the mountain, she realises that the trolls are relying on her to break the curse.
Cécile has only one thing on her mind: escape. But the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time…
But the more time she spends with the trolls, the more she understands their plight. There is a rebellion brewing. And she just might be the one the trolls were looking for…
This a book I have wanted to pick for years now, to be exact I found out about in 2014 and since then it has always been in the back of my mind to actually finally buy it and read it. As I loved it so much, it has become a new favourite of mine, I am now banging my head with the book because I am so mad I didn’t pick it up sooner.
This book had every aspect I absolutely adore in fantasy novels – amazing characters (yes, all of them), the plot was fast-paced and always made me want to read more, the world and the magic and the fantastical creatures – I loved everything!
I probably would have read this book in one sitting if not for exhaustion and life getting in the way but still, reading over 300 pages in one day – wow Natalia I am proud 🙂
I might be biased as I love anything to do with witches and magical creatures but in this book, I feel like everything was introduced so well and I loved how we learned about everything with our main character Cecile who was oblivious to Goblin politics as much as the reader. Her choices and what she thought of the situation she found herself in she reacted in such a realistic way that I just grew to love her the more I got into the story. Now moving on to the love interest, Tristan, man I love this guy – he is so selfless and just wants things to change and how his relationship grew with Cecile I just loved! No love triangle included so we could focus solely on the story and not worry about who the protagonist was going to choose. Plus, they were destined to fall in love and be with each other so I loved that.
I really can’t wait to pick up the next book Hidden Huntress as even though there probably won’t be too much romance involved I can’t wait to learn more about the curse and the witch. Plus, I feel like Cecile will grow even more as a character and I cannot wait to see how she will deal with everything that went down in this book and trust me A LOT went down.
I am just mesmerised by the world and Danielle L. Jensens writing so I have a feeling for the next couple of weeks you will be seeing a lot of photos of this series on my Bookstagram, #sorrynotsorry
If you are thinking of picking up Stolen Songbird you definitely should as I think if you are a fan of Wintersong by S.Jae Jones then you will love this as it has a similar plot to that book.
