Book Review: Crystal Kingdom by Amanda Hocking

Members of the Vise Library were selected to review Crystal Kingdom (how gorgeous is this cover??).  We received a copy of Amanda Hocking's book for an honest review.

About the book:

Cast out by her kingdom and far from home, she's the Kanin people's only hope.

Bryn Aven-unjustly charged with murder and treason-is on the run. The one person who can help is her greatest enemy, the gorgeous and enigmatic Konstantin Black. Konstantin is her only ally against those who have taken over her kingdom and threaten to destroy everything she holds dear. But can she trust him?
As Bryn fights to clear her name, the Kanin rulers' darkest secrets are coming to light... and now the entire troll world is on the brink of war. Will it tear Bryn from Ridley Dresden, the only guy she's ever loved? And can she join forces with Finn Holms and the Trylle kingdom? Nothing is as it seems, but one thing is certain: an epic battle is underway-and when it's complete, nothing will ever be the same...
Crystal Kingdom concludes the Kanin Chronicles.  When this book starts, Bryn is on the run.  She has been accused of treason and murder and has to look to Konstantin - the guy that tried to kill her father.  These two have to seek out different tribes in their world to look for help to save their kingdom from someone very evil.  We get a more in-depth look at some of the characters and their pasts.  The final build-up is a pretty intense battle and everything changes.  This book had so much adventure and a lot of unlikely friendships (hint, I really grew to like Konstantin).  There were some plot twists that will leave you shocked.  I hated to say goodbye to some of the characters, especially Bryn, but you won't be disappointed in the conclusion of this series.
