Summary of The Lost City by Amanda Hocking: a high fantasy book

Ulla was abandoned in an isolated city as a baby, taken in by strangers and raised hidden away like many of the trolls of mixed blood. Even knowing this truth, she’s never stopped wondering about her family.

When Ulla is offered an internship working alongside the handsome Pan at a prestigious institution, she jumps at the chance to use this opportunity to hopefully find her parents. All she wants is to focus on her job and the search for her parents, but all of her attempts to find them are blocked when she learns her mother may be connected to the royal family.

Ulla and Pan get wrapped up in helping  wrapped up in helping a girl with amnesia and with abilities unlike any they have ever seen before.  More than one mystery will be unraveled.
