Hey guys, I'M BACK!!!

Did you miss me? No? Oh, common! I know you missed me. No? Really? Not even a tiny bit? Okay. *head and shoulder slumped*

Well, that's too bad because I missed you guys so much!

Anyway, it's been a while. How have you been? I'm sorry if I haven't updated you guys on what's going on and also, for the unplanned hiatus. It's a necessary sacrifice in order for me to focus on my life and I know you understand that.

The good news is, I now have a job as an IT clerk in our local government and so far, I'm enjoying it. I've also written a lot of new reviews after my review slump, two of which were already posted this week (Seven Wonders Journal and Stolen Songbird). There's more to come, so watch out for that.

You'll definitely be seeing me a lot from now on. So even if you didn't miss me, (which I'm still bummed about, btw) I'll make you happy that I'm finally here again.

Ciao! for now... :)

For five centuries, a witch’s curse has bound the trolls to their city beneath the ruins of Forsaken Mountain. Time enough for their dark and nefarious magic to fade from human memory and into myth. But a prophesy has been spoken of a union with the power to set the trolls free, and when Cécile de Troyes is kidnapped and taken beneath the mountain, she learns there is far more to the myth of the trolls than she could have imagined.

Cécile has only one thing on her mind after she is brought to Trollus: escape. Only the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time, wait for the perfect opportunity.

But something unexpected happens while she’s waiting – she begins to fall for the enigmatic troll prince to whom she has been bonded and married. She begins to make friends. And she begins to see that she may be the only hope for the half-bloods – part troll, part human creatures who are slaves to the full-blooded trolls. There is a rebellion brewing. And her prince, Tristan, the future king, is its secret leader.

As Cécile becomes involved in the intricate political games of Trollus, she becomes more than a farmer’s daughter. She becomes a princess, the hope of a people, and a witch with magic powerful enough to change Trollus forever.
