Teen Talk Tuesday: Amanda Hocking is baaaaack! (11/18/14 Edition)

Amanda Hocking made headlines when her self-published Trylle trilogy sold millions of e-copies. And when St. Martin’s Press re-released the trilogy in print, it spent a combined total of 23 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, reaching as high as #2.

In FROSTFIRE, the first book in Hocking’s magical new YA series, readers meet Bryn Aven — an outcast among the Kanin — the most powerful of the troll tribes.

Set apart by her heritage and her past, Bryn is a tracker who’s determined to become a respected part of her world. She has just one goal: become a member of the elite King’s Guard to protect the royalty. She’s not going to let anything stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance with her boss Ridley Dresden. But all her plans for the future are put on hold when Konstantin– a fallen hero who she once loved – appears to be up to something dangerous, kidnapping changelings. Bryn is sent in to help stop him, but will she lose her heart in the process?

“The novel’s lingering questions and the author’s knack for cliffhangers are reason enough to anticipate the next installment.”–Publishers Weekly
