Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen is the story of the lost city of Trollus. It was believed that a long time ago, an earthquake buried and destroyed this ancient city; however, the myths also include the trolls that lived within the city. For centuries the city remained buried, the magic of the Trolls slowly faded from history, but a prophecy has been put into play. Cecile has always wanted a fancy and free life of a singer, much like her famous mother. On her last day before she leaves to the big city with her mother, in order to begin her training, Cecile encounters Luc, who abducts her and brings her into the mythical city of Trollus. The prophecy in place: a daughter of sun and son of dark bound by marriage will break the centuries old curse and bring Trollus back on the map. Cecile has been bought by the Troll King for his son, for she will be bound to him and will break the curse (no pressure), against her will.
Secrets, Trolls, witches, curses, love, and conspiracy all play a part in this book. I frankly loved the setting, descriptions of Trollus, and the romance. Also, I see what the author is doing with the secrets of the Trolls… I see what you did there and I like it. I cannot wait to see how this unravels, and I want more Cecile and Tristan!!!
4 out of 5 stars. Thank You NetGalley!
