Book Review: Hidden by Sophie Jordan

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 Opinion(spoilers if you haven’t read the first two books):

I personally rate this final book in the Firelight trilogy 3 out of 5 stars. The novel was a quick, easy read, but also did not fulfill the anticipation I had for it. I really wanted to see Jacinda and Will get at least one happy moment together, and instead it was just packed with drama. Plus, throughout most of the book, Jacinda is questioning her real feelings for Cassian. I’m sorry, but What? She never liked Cassian before and now here she is feeling this “connection”. By the end of the book, I was just waiting for Jacinda to send Will off and stay with Cassian, but no…Also, Will’s character was…unpredictably odd. There’s no other way to put it. It’s like he’s gone through some kind of transformation, and he obviously has powers, but not once does anyone even question what he may or may not be. I really thought that Will’s mom was draki and his dad was a hunter and maybe that’s why Will had those weird powers to like crush things pretty much. However, none of that is answered in the FINAL book. It was kind of disappointing that a lot of my questions weren’t answered and the ending seemed really rushed. It was almost like the author got tired of writing towards the end. This last book definitely was NOT a favorite of mine compared to the first book and the sequel. I do still recommend the series plainly because the whole idea of it is very different and unique, but don’t get your hopes up for the last book. This is also one of those books that I would NOT pay full price to own it on my bookshelf, but instead pay the cheaper price to just have it on my nook.

Always,
