Ulla Tulin was abandoned in an isolated Kanin town as a baby.

When Ulla hears of a project to help half-blood trolls, in the beautiful city of Merella, she seizes the chance to discover her true heritage. She enlists the help of Pan Soriano, who is both handsome and resourceful - a half-human with telekinesis powers. And she must also contend with Eliana, a mysterious girl who claims she's being pursued. Though Ulla suspects there's rather more to the story. Ulla and Pan work to unravel the truth about themselves and Eliana. But in the process, they realize that someone - or something - is determined to stop them. And they face a force that will do anything to keep certain secrets. The Lost City by Amanda Hocking is the terrific first book in the Omte Origins trilogy.
