Blurb Description: 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.

My Review:

I Loved. This. Book. A perfectly executed, amazingly fun book with all the right ingredients, Stolen Songbird is officially my Favourite book yet of 2014!

When I think of what to say, what to tell everybody reading this, I find myself at a loss for words (and now, writing this, I’m hoping something does come to me) because there wasn’t even a single flaw, not a single second when I wondered whether or not this book would be a good one! So, let me start…

“Prince of Night, Daughter of Day, Bound as one the witch they’ll slay” (*shivering*)

Taken from her home, her family, and the life she was promised she would have, Cécile de Troyes finds herself in an unknown world. One filled with wicked beauty, devious charm and intricately entwined splendor- Trollus- home of the trolls- trolls that are only whispered about in the tales children whisper to one another in the dead of night. Forced to be bonded to Trollus’ enigmatic, charming and calculating prince, Tristan, Cécile finds that everything that was once completely hers, is not anymore- not even her deepest emotions. And why? Because it was foretold, that it would be her and the Prince that would break the curse; the curse that has kept the trolls in confines for centuries. The curse that has kept them longing, waiting and hoping for the day when they can see the marvelous light of day again.

While being a princess in one of the most cunning courts ever to exist is quite the contrary at to what Cécile has ever wanted, this Forbidden City and its Prince who are mythical to almost everyone who isn’t confined in it, grows on her with all of their splendor and wickedness alike. For in Trollus, Deception is a game, promises binding, power is the prize and Everybody’s playing!

I won’t ruin this book for you, by explaining what happens, even though I can- but suffice to say that this book will make you open it again, the second you’ve flipped the last page! You’ll laugh at all the brilliantly thought out fake quarrels, almost fall of your seat every time something new comes along, wish and hope that you were living in Trollus at that very minute and of course, wait desperately for the next installment just like me!

From a farm-girl to a princess, from a boy to a king, from magic to terror, from beauty to wickedness, from hatred to love, from foes to friends, this book will serve it all up on a Golden Platter!

My Verdict:

Just one more thing, what are you waiting for? Go ahead! I couldn’t give a stronger recommendation!
