Summary:
The kingdom she loves has turned against her. Can she save it before it’s too late?

Bryn Aven—unjustly charged with murder and treason—is on the run. The one person who can help is her greatest enemy, the gorgeous and enigmatic Konstantin Black. Konstantin is her only ally against those who have taken over her kingdom and threaten to destroy everything she holds dear. But can she trust him?

As Bryn fights to clear her name, the Kanin rulers’ darkest secrets are coming to light…and now the entire troll world is on the brink of war. Will it tear Bryn from Ridley Dresden, the only guy she’s ever loved? And can she join forces with Finn Holmes and the Trylle kingdom? Nothing is as it seems, but one thing is certain: an epic battle is under way—and when it’s over, nothing will ever be the same…

My review:

It's sad to write this final review of this incredible trilogy. If you didn't know already, Crystal Kingdom is the third and final book of the Kanin Chronicles series. I'm really going to miss this world. I know I could just reread the books, but it just won't the same. 

Crystal Kingdom is an action-packed and fast-paced book. Just like all the other Amanda Hocking books I've read so far, almost every end of each chapter is a cliffhanger, so you basically can't stop reading! 

If you read (obviously) Book II, you know that Bryn encounters Konstantin at this restaurant after running away from her kingdom at the end of the second book. AND THAT CLIFFHANGER JUST SUCK ASS. But anyway, the third book starts where the previous book ended. Konstantin offers Bryn his help, but she just isn't sure she can trust him. 

I honestly kind of knew that Konstantin wasn't really that bad of a guy. He was just like Loki Staad (If you read the Trylle Trilogy, you know what I mean). I really liked his personality and how his relationship with Bryn changes throughout the trilogy. Ridley, Bryn and Konstantin remind me a lot of Finn, Wendy and Loki, but this time I don't't really mind whether Bryn ends up with Ridley or Konstantin because I love both men equally. 

There are some things that really broke my heart in this book, but I don't want to give too much informations. (wouldn't want to spoil you :P)

Amanda Hocking's writing is amazing and I can't wait to read more of her works. I'm wishing that she writes another series in the Trylle world. I'm kind of hoping it would be Liam Holmes' story ahah. You never know, right? ;D
