Stolen Songbird
(The Malediction Trilogy #1)
by Danielle L. Jensen
Expected publication: April 1st 2014
by Strange Chemistry

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.

I'm so exited for Stolen Songbird! I love the unexpected twist in it which reminds me of Beauty and the Beast, but with a enigmatic troll prince and a farmer’s daughter destined to be a great princess. The setting of hidden city beneath the ruins of a mountain, a witch's curse, and nefarious magic. And Trolls! Let's not forget them either. I can't wait to get my hands on this one :)
