goodreads: 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 take: Yep, I read Hidden the moment I got my hands on it. This has been one of my favorite triliogy’s over the years. I have always adored Jacinda and her strength to do what was right and follow her heart. And I am sure you want me to say that I love Will, that he is who I hoped Jacinda would end up with, that he is the one I always admired. Well, that would be a lie. I have ALWAYS loved Cassian. I love his strength, vulnerability, and heart. However, and this takes a lot for me to admit, I was rooting for Will and Jacinda in Hidden. This is a shocker if you know me at all. But Sophie, with all her romantical ways, made me realize how right Will and Jacinda are for each other. Though, you’ll have to read the book to see who gets their heart broken.
Miram is still spoiled but is learning there is more out there than the life that she has been living. Will she be rescued? Will she finally realize that she is ultimately at fault for being captured in the first place? But there is more on their plate than saving Miriam and it has everything to do with the darkening future of the Draki. Jacinda, Cassian, Jacinda’s sister, and Will will have to team up to save their home and try to make right the wrongs that the Pride have set up over the years with cruel direction and sickening punishments.
Ever since I read this series, I have been a fan of Sophie Jordan. I have read almost everything that she has written since. I love her writing and her romance that makes my heart beat a little faster. *sigh* If you haven’t read this trilogy yet, you are in luck. You don’t have to wait for the next book in the series to come out like we did. I recommend getting all three books, pouring yourself a cup of coffee, setting some granola bars within reach, finding a comfy place on the couch, and start reading. You won’t want to put the books down until you read the last page of Hidden. I sure didn’t.
