Note: This post reviews the third book of The Kanin Chronicles. You may like to read the first two books in the series, Frostfire and Ice Kissed, before reading this review. 

Additional note: Crystal Kingdom, like the book before it, contains a descriptive love scene that I feel is pretty mature in its description and content. Strong language is also used occasionally throughout the book. I say this as a heads up for the actual “young adults” this book is aimed toward. 
Bryn Aven is on the run. Desperate to find more evidence to prove her case, she decides to go back to the beginning and learn the truth. She returns to her people, with valuable information behind the conspiracy.
When the conspirator declares war on the Skojare, the other tribes join Bryn and her friends, ready to make a stand against the true enemy. It is time to go to war against Doldastam – her own city.

In this exciting finish, Hocking wraps up a lot of the conflict between the tribes of the trolls, conflict between Bryn and her people, and even conflict in Bryn’s own heart. These books have earned a place on my shelves. I know I will come back and reread them at some point, experiencing this fantastic world of the trolls all over again.
