The Mind's Obsession

The Kanin Chronicles~ Amanda Hocking


This is a series based of the same world of the Trylle. If you haven’t read Trylle, read it first. It is technically a separate series, but features some characters from Trylle.

There are five tribes among the trolls: The Omte, The Skojare, The Kanin, The Vittra, and the Trylle. This series is about the Kanin. The average Kanin person has earth features. Dark hair, and dark eyes. Bryn Aven doesn’t fit in with her blond hair, and blue eyes. Bryn is half Skojare, and she has never been accepted for it. She has spent most of her life training to become a member of the kings elite guard. When she was fifteen, someone attempted to kill her father, Konstantin Black. Now Bryn is nineteen, Konstantin is a wanted fugitive,and Bryn still seeks revenge.  When her Boss, Ridley Dresden, whom she is becoming all the more fond of, gives he a new assignment in Chicago. She sets off to track the young Kanin, but maybe Konstantin isn’t as far away as they always thought.

This was a very good trilogy, that I will probably read again. I loved the character of Konstantin, and how nobody truly knows who he really is. I was ecstatic when they put characters from Trylle into the series, which just made it so much better for me. This series was not as good as the Trylle, by far, but it is definitely worth the read for an Amanda Hocking fan.

Freedom’s Child~ Jax Miller

 freedoms child

This is the first free book I’ve gotten in exchange for a review, and I must say I am thoroughly impressed. Join Blogging for Books to get free books, in exchange for a review, and you can keep the book.

Freedom Oliver lives in a small Oregon town, with more secrets than any diary. She keeps mostly to herself, but is also known as the town drunk. She works at a Biker bar, and gets picked up for drunkenness often. They all just think she is a fearless woman, who drinks a lot. But, nobody knows that Freedom Oliver is a fake name. They don’t know she was arrested for killing her husband, a cop, twenty long years ago. They don’t know she gave up her two kids for adoption. They don’t know she is in witness protection. They don’t know how she aches for her children every minute of everyday. When she finds out her daughter has gone missing, she jumps on a motorcycle and leaves for Kentucky. Her past comes at her like a wave, she people who adopted her children, may not be as good as everyone thought, and her husband’s family seeks revenge.

I loved this book, I loved almost everything about it. The  character of Freedom Oliver is extremely strong, and able to take care of herself. I loved the way she would be the strongest person around, and still be the gentle mother missing her children. I also really like the characters of Mattley, Mason, and Peter. Mattley is a cop, and one of the few people who cares about Freedom. Mason is Freedom’s son, and a big corporate lawyer dude. Peter is one of Freedom’s ex husband’s brothers, one only decent one actually. The only thing I disliked about the story is the fate of all the Delaney’s. Through out the entire story they are all a big deal, and their fate seems really light. The three brothers just randomly at the Paul’s, and then boom, boom, boom. And with Lynn, That was completely unexpected, and I think it could have been different with her. I think the entire concept of the story is awesome, and I really did love the book, and would read it again.
