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 claimed she does feel that she doesn't quite fit in ... she knows she can influence people by her special powers but no one else does and then she discovers a porthole into another world... This is Book One of the Trylle Trilogy which has been a huge digital self-publishing sensation. The second and third are to be published in quick succession during 2012 so there won't be long to wait between each one.

The new girl in High School, she's bored and frustrated by her small town life and then there's the secret that she can't tell anyone.

Everything begins to make sense to Wendy. Among the Trylle, she 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 ...
