Crystal Kingdom (The Kanin Chronicles)
Bryn is running from the only home she’s ever known to avoid being charged with the murder of a troll prince and treason to her Queen. She has to leave behind her parents, her best friend, Ember, and the only boy she’s ever loved, Riley Dresden. The only one who might help her get her life back is also her sworn enemy, Konstantin Black, but to turn away from him is to risk certain death. With his help, she puts together a picture of corruption and greed, and revenge that stems from way back before she can remember. Alone, they cannot recruit help from other troll kingdoms, but together, they just might be able to pool assistance from the troll community before their race is obliterated. Hocking has concluded the Kanin chronicles with a fast-paced ride that faithful readers will expect and love. Reading it alone may be challenging, but the author does a fair job of explaining events that happened in the previous two installments. However, readers who deprive themselves of the first two books, Frostfire and Ice Kissed, have definitely missed out on something amazing.
