Stolen Songbird was a treat to read
Have a look at the blurb and see if it doesn’t immediately make you want to curl up and read;
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…
Now for my review of Stolen Songbird!
I loved this story.
The characters pulled me in immediately. I foolishly started reading at about 10pm on a Sunday, knowing I would have to get up early for work the following morning. See me today, bleary eyed, finished and desperate to share the love!
The story was fantastic – familiar enough to give comfort and different enough to hold my interest. The twists and turns kept me guessing as to what would happen – unusual for me, as I very often find myself picking up on the story’s ending long before I am close to finishing the book.
The characters remained consistent in their ways, gaining depth and wisdom as their tale progressed. This was not an ‘insta-love’ scenario, but a rather more realistic romance, growing in feeling despite tricky conditions.
I now see that this is the first of three and I’m off straight away to see if the second book is out yet, because I could very well do without another night’s sleep!
