Return to the World of the Trylle
On July 7, 2020, I’m returning to the world of the Trylle Trilogy and the Kanin Chronicles with the first book in the Omte Origins THE LOST CITY, followed by the second book THE MORNING FLOWER on August 4, 2020.
The Omte Origins – like the two previous series – is a trilogy, and it’s set five years after the events of the Kanin Chronicles and nine years after the events of the Trylle Trilogy. Characters from the Trylle and Kanin have roles to play – both large and small – so I recommend reading the other series first, if you have the chance.
I did write the Omte Origins so it could be accessible to people who had never read either the Kanin or the Trylle, but there will be spoilers for the previous books, as well as some fun references and Easter eggs that add another layer to the world.
Here’s the official description for THE LOST CITY:
Amanda Hocking, the New York Times bestselling author of The Kanin Chronicles, returns to the magical world of the Trylle Trilogy with The Lost City, the first novel in The Omte Origins―and the final story arc in her beloved series.
The storm and the orphan
Twenty years ago, a woman sought safety from the spinning ice and darkness that descended upon a small village. She was given shelter for the night by the local innkeepers but in the morning, she disappeared―leaving behind an infant. Now nineteen, Ulla Tulin is ready to find who abandoned her as a baby or why.
The institution and the quest
Ulla knows the answers to her identity and heritage may be found at the Mimirin where scholars dedicate themselves to chronicling troll history. Granted an internship translating old documents, Ulla starts researching her own family lineage with help from her handsome and charming colleague Pan Soriano.
The runaway and the mystery
But then Ulla meets Eliana, a young girl who no memory of who she is but who possesses otherworldly abilities. When Eliana is pursued and captured by bounty hunters, Ulla and Pan find themselves wrapped up in a dangerous game where folklore and myth become very real and very deadly―but one that could lead Ulla to the answers she’s been looking for.

Here’s the official description for THE MORNING FLOWER:
New York Times bestselling author Amanda Hocking returns to the magical world of the Trylle with THE MORNING FLOWER, the second book in the Omte Origins arc.
Welcome back to the kingdom of the Omte―a forest realm where secrets and danger, human nature and ancient mythology collide.
Where truth is stranger than fiction.
Searching for answers to her own shrouded origins, Ulla Tulin’s journey of exploration takes a sudden turn when Eliana is kidnapped. Turning toward the Omte capital instead of the institute where she hoped to learn the truth about her identity, Ulla must put Eliana’s welfare before her own―a sacrifice that will present all new dangers to them both.
When history is still unwritten.
Ulla never expected that once she arrived she’d discover the identity of a Skojare man who crossed paths with her mother―a man who could very well be her father. Given the man’s connections to the Älvolk, a secret society tasked with protecting the location of the First City, Ulla is soon dispatched to Sweden to find him.
One woman will dare to go wherever fate will take her…
Now Ulla, along with her maybe boyfriend Pan, finds herself on a desperate race against time to locate her kin―who could very well pose a danger to her kingdom. Nobody and nothing is as it seems as she penetrates the dark heart of the Älvolk…all the way to the secret Lost Bridge to the First City, where an unknown future awaits for Ulla and her kind.
