Bargain do Dia ~ Switched e Ascend Amanda Hocking
Wendy Everly knew she was different the day her mother tried to kill her and accused her of having been switched at birth. Although certain she’s not the monster her mother claims she is — she does feel that she doesn’t quite fit in… She’s bored and frustrated by her small town life—and then there’s the secret that she can’t tell anyone. Her mysterious ability—she can influence people’s decisions, without knowing how, or why… When the intense and darkly handsome newcomer Finn suddenly turns up at her bedroom window one night — her world is turned upside down. He holds the key to her past, the answers to her strange powers and is the doorway to a place she never imagined could exist. Forening, the home of the Trylle. Finally everything makes sense. Among the Trylle, Wendy is not just different, but special. But what marks her out as chosen for greatness in this world also places her in grave danger. With everything around her changing, Finn is the only person she can trust. But dark forces are conspiring—not only to separate them, but to see the downfall everything that Wendy cares about. The fate of Forening rests in Wendy’s hands, and the decisions she and Finn make could change all their lives forever…

Wendy Everly can barely remember what it was like to feel like a normal girl. She’d wished for her life to be different but everything is so much more complicated than she’d expected. And she certainly hadn’t dreamt she’d be getting married at eighteen to a man she didn’t love—all for the sake of duty. As the big day approaches, Wendy can’t stop thinking about two different men—and neither of them are her husband-to-be. Finn—quiet, strong and determined to do what’s right, and Loki—dark and seductive, a sworn enemy who once saved her life. With all-out war just days away, Wendy needs to act quickly if she is to save her friends and family. But while her loyalties and duties are to her people, deeper passions are leading her elsewhere. And as her worlds collide, Wendy must sacrifice everything she loves to save them. But will it be enough?
