Give in to the Glamour as the saga continues...

17-year-old Ryann Carroll thought she knew who she was... a small-town Southern girl just trying to survive her parents' messy divorce and find some peace for herself. She thought she knew what she wanted... a summer job, a car, a first date that didn't suck, and NO complications from a serious relationship--any guy in her life would simply be icing on the cake.

But now... she's not only in love, her boyfriend Lad is a member of an ancient race that's lived secretly among humans for thousands of years, mentioned only in flawed and fading folklore. Things could hardly get more complicated than that.

More importantly, she's learned the world's top celebrities... those actors, musicians, athletes, and politicians who seem a little too beautiful and talented to be true... actually are. They're not human, and they're using their glamour and the increasing popularity of fan pods to control more and more humans. But why?

With her best friend Emmy leaving soon to join the fan pod of a famous actor, Ryann has to find out the answer. And she can't do it alone. But after a shocking murder, Lad can no longer fight his destiny or his duty, and Ryann's not sure whether his top priority is their relationship or his people.
In this second book of the Hidden Trilogy, true friendship will take Ryann from rural Mississippi to the glittering city of Los Angeles. And true love will take her to places she never expected to go...

ARC kindly provided by Amy Patrick in exchange for an honest review. Review I was very excited about this novel! After the EPIC first novel 'Hidden Deep' I couldn't WAIT to launch into this sequel. I was eager to return to the world or Altum and its "elven" inhabitants as well as follow Ryann and Lad as their romance blossomed. Full of emotion, it really captured my reader's heart. I felt deeply connected to all the characters and loved how much the author pulled on my sympathy strings, even though they would in turn pull on my heart strings. The novel started off by giving us a peak a month later following the EPIC cliff-hanger at the end of the last novel and then returned to a month earlier, picking up at the same time as 'Hidden Deep' ended. I was deeply upset for our newly reunited couple as they FINALLY had the chance to be together and were now ripped apart by the tumultuous events once again. I loved, Loved, LOVED the diversity of characters. Each was very unique with distinct characteristics and personalities. I admired some characters’ attitudes because it made them so TANGIBLE that even the villains seemed to be not completely evil but people the reader and other characters just misunderstood. The three main characters in this novel – Ryann, Lad and Nox – all held a special place in my heart. Ryann was such a persistent and determined character (with a BIG attitude towards certain people – ahem, Nox) that I couldn't stop myself from becoming quickly attached to her. Lad was just a complete sweetie even though I DID want to bash his brains out for being completely and unimaginable senseless in some situations. He was a complete gentleman though I suspect that that may have to do with the fact that bonding in "elves" includes a very intimate connection. Nox was...a bad boy with a traumatic and very sympathetic past. I felt so horrible for him when the author continued to explore him in 'Hidden Heart'! 'Hidden Heart's plot progression was just EXCELLENT! It was masterfully woven, and with the beautiful characters which Amy Patrick had created and, there weren't any loose ends left untied. It had a very solid story arc that connected well with the first novel and left room for a continuation of the series. There were also small sub-plots in the novel that really enhanced the story. Written in first person past tense, I greatly enjoyed the way the author structured the novel so much like the first in the series. The sort of prologue starts off in the present and then flashbacks to the past for the majority of the novel. The story then rounds itself off by returning to the present. I thought this was a clever way to grip the reader from the beginning. I also really admired the skill, maturity and talent of the author in her writing style. She was able to grab me from the very beginning in 'Hidden Deep' and then masterfully compelled me to continue to 'Hidden Heart' through beautiful imagery and emotional language that left my heart almost torn in two at the end. Even though this is a mostly unknown series it DEFINITELY deserves a go! Tension, drama and anticipation were in SPADES and BUCKETFULS in this beauty! I mean how much more could it take? The author really knew how to add a sprinkle here and then a splash there to make the story a FIVE star!
