Review: Hidden

Firelight # 3
Author: Sophie Jordan
Release Date: September 11, 2012

Goodreads Description:

Jacinda was supposed to bond with Cassian, the "prince" of their pride. But she resisted long before she fell in love with Will—a human and, worse, a hunter. When she ran away with Will, it ended in disaster, with Cassian's sister, Miram, captured. Weighed down by guilt, Jacinda knows she must rescue her to set things right. Yet to do so she will have to venture deep into the heart of enemy territory.

The only way Jacinda can reach Miram is by posing as a prisoner herself, though once she assumes that disguise, things quickly spiral out of her control. As she learns more about her captors, she realizes that even if Will and Cassian can carry out their part of the plan, there's no guarantee they'll all make it out alive. But what Jacinda never could have foreseen is that escaping would be only the beginning....

Loyalties are tested and sacrifices made in the explosive conclusion to Sophie Jordan's Firelight trilogy.

My Thoughts:

Hidden is the final book in the Firelight series by Sophie Jordan. After things picked up in Vanish, I was really hoping to love Hidden. Unfortunately, I did not. The finale in this series was just okay and wasn’t the ending I was hoping for.

Like Vanish, Hidden picks up immediately where the previous book ended. Also, like Vanish, Hidden was fast paced right from the get go. I flew through the book anxious to find out how this story ended. However, at the end I just didn’t feel that connection. What can I say? Hidden and I just didn’t click.

There wasn’t anything in particular that I just hated about the book. The action was good. The characters were okay. The plot was interesting enough. Unfortunately, there wasn’t anything I loved about it either. Well, except for Cassian.

Again, Cassian was my favorite character. I felt like the story would have been more interesting if it had focused on Tamra and Cassian. I’m sad to say that in my opinion Tamra was the more interesting sister. Jacinda got out my nerves too much with her indecision.

I do hope that a certain character gets their own series since there were some loose ends left hanging. I would definitely be interested in reading it and I honestly think I could love that story.

Overall, this was an average series. I don’t regret reading it but it’s definitely not a book that I will be recommending to everyone I see. In the end, I felt this series was a little forgettable, fast paced and mildly entertaining, but still forgettable.
