For those who have loved Seraphina and Graceling comes another truly fabulous fantasy…
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.

Stolen Songbird stole my heart. I was so excited to get this book when it came in the mail. It wasn’t really like any book I could think of, like I never read books about trolls. And when I think about trolls I picture this or this Not a person who you would look at and think was human besides his eyes. Ladies and gentlemen Danielle L. Jensen defies nature with this book with trolls.
There’s so much I liked about the characters. Firstly, I think Céilce is an amazing female character. She’s so down to Earth and thinks about people before herself. And then there’s Tristan who is just amazing, hes not what he seems at the surface, and I just love him. I just love Céilce and Tristan together. I love the secondary characters in this book, they are full of life and they each have a back story. So it adds so much more to the book.
Besides the characters, I love the cover of this book. For one green is one of my favorite colors. Also I like the glass rose she’s holding, and how the light is reflecting off of it. Another thing I like about the cover is the light is surrounding Céilce (at least I think that’s the girl in the cover).
Finally I love the pace of the book, it doesn’t drag on and the action starts so fast. It’s just the right pace. The Love story in this book is so real and that’s what made me fall in love with this book. Read Stolen Songbird and the uniqueness of the story won’t be disappoint you.
About the Author:
Danielle was born and raised in Calgary, Canada. At the insistence of the left side of her brain, she graduated in 2003 from the University of Calgary with a bachelor’s degree in finance. But the right side of her brain has ever been mutinous; and in 2010, it sent her back to school to complete an entirely impractical English literature degree at Mount Royal University and to pursue publication. Much to her satisfaction, the right side shows no sign of relinquishing its domination.
I would love to be your friend on Goodreads, but I might be a bit boring, because while I note the books I’m reading, I don’t rate or write reviews.
