Overview

Reader Advisory: Hidden is a novella, or short novel, about 40,000 words. It is not a full-length novel.



Hiking through the snow, holiday baking and playing board games by the fire--what's not to love about an old-fashioned family Christmas?

Werewolves Elena Michaels and Clayton Danvers want to give their four-year-old twins, Kate and Logan, something their parents never had: a nice, normal holiday. No Pack responsibilities, no homicidal half-demons or power-hungry sorcerers to deal with--just the four of them, alone, at a chalet outside Ontario's Algonquin Park. Then a strange werewolf shows up at their door...while the town is buzzing about a young man, back from college, found half-eaten in the woods. And there's the missing little girl...

With all the signs pointing to a rogue mutt with a taste for human flesh, Elena and Clay have no choice but to investigate. But are they the hunters--or the hunted?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Armstrong’s latest Otherworld novella wraps a straightforward urban fantasy tale in Christmas paper. Clayton and Elena head off to spend their Christmas vacation at a Canadian chalet, wanting to get in a “normal” family holiday with their four-year-old twins before precocious Kate and Logan figure out that Mom and Dad are werewolves. When unpleasant news comes knocking, Clay and Elena must set aside their picture-postcard dreams to hunt for a possible rogue werewolf in the nearby woods. Tight, quick, and often touching, the story comes to a highly satisfying and emotional ending. Armstrong’s werewolves have a gritty depth created by encounters with modern-day confusions, bureaucracies, and banalities, and though the tale at times feels too short when compared to the full-size Otherworld novels, series fans will find it a tasty holiday treat. (Jan.)
Library Journal
Werewolves Elena Michaels and Clayton Danvers (from Armstrong's "Otherworld" series) have their holiday with their four-year-old twins interrupted by a strange wolf outside their door and a recent death that has townsfolk on edge about bad things happening in the woods. Featuring color illustrations by Angilram, this novella will appeal to Armstrong's devotees.

Meet the Author

Kelley Armstrong
Kelley Armstrong

Kelley Armstrong is the New York Times bestselling author of the Women of the Otherworld series. She has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers’ dismay. All efforts to make her produce “normal” stories failed. Today she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves while safely locked in her basement writing-dungeon.

    Good story!

    While I liked the story, and the chance to see more of the twins, I thought this was kind of pricy for such a short book.

    Great novella for Christmas time

    Maybe it is because I am a parent, but I really enjoyed this look at Elena as both mother and alpha-elect. Good story with a mystery to solve.

    Terrific way to say goodbye to Clay and Elena

    Hidden is different from the other Clay and Elena stories in this series, but I feel that it is the perfect goodbye story for them. This novella wraps up their story and leaves the reader feeling as if no matter what happens, Clay, Elena, and the twins will be okay. There is not much action or suspense in this story, but there is quite a bit of mystery. Armstrong throws in a twist at the end that I didn't see coming. All in all, this is a must read for all of the fans of the Otherworld series.

    I put off reading this book for a long time because I simply did not want to say goodbye to Clay and Elena. They are my favorite Otherworld couple, and I apparently thought avoiding this book would mean that there would be more Clay and Elena stories. However, the book did not leave me feeling sad. Instead, I feel hopeful that Clay and Elena will have a good, yet adventurous, life.

    It was interesting to see how Clay and Elena's relationship has evolved over the course of this series. They went from being at each other's throats (specifically Elena wanting to kill Clay) to being happily married with twins. There are mentions of memories and the past in this book, and we get to learn that Elena and Clay have been together off and on for twenty years.

    This book focuses mainly on Clay and Elena trying to find a balance with Elena's new title as alpha-in-training or whatever the official title is and Elena wanting to protect her children from the type of childhood she had. Both of these things lead to extreme personal growth on Elena's part, but there isn't much action or steamy romance, which Armstrong's previous Elena and Clay books are known for.

    The pacing is spot on, and while the plot isn't as suspenseful as some of the previous Armstrong books, I still couldn't put the book down. I read it all in one sitting. It's a quick read... it only took me about 2 hours to finish. The ending ties up all of the questions left about Clay and Elena's relationship, but leaves room for the reader to imagine where Clay and Elena may go from here.

    Even though this book had a different feel to it, I still enjoyed it. It's a definite must-read for any fan of the Otherworld series. If you haven't checked out the Otherworld series yet, you are missing out on a captivating set of books. It's my absolute favorite series of all time. Armstrong is a fantastic author, and she does not disappoint with this final Clay and Elena story. If you'd like to read this book, buy it now before there are no copies left. It's a limited edition, so you don't want to wait on this one.

    Hidden

    I love anything kelley armstrong writes, and have read the otherworld series at least a dozen times. I especially love when she writes about clayton & elena. I hope to read more about them, and would LOVE to see how the twins grow up, with clayton and elena as their parents :)

    not my favorite

    maybe it's been a while since I read one of these books, but the first part of the book was a bit boring and predictable. once it got more into the story line, it was pretty good.

    Highly recommended for fans of Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series

    I was pleased to discover that this Novella was a wonderful view of family life for Elena, Clay, and their twins. With the Otherworld series concluding with 13, I'm glad that Ms. Armstrong is continuing to flesh out the lives of these characters, and we can see the personalities of the children and speculate as to whether or not they will inherit the werewolf genes from their parents. Of course, there's a murder to be solved, with twists, turns and misdirections. Seeing Elena as an overprotective Mom was kind of fun, as she and Clay work out their differing parenting views.

    Great Series!

    This is a short story about Clay and Elana and the twins. They don't know about their parents being wolf shifters but they know something is different with their little family. I love the way KA involves all of her previous characters in every book she writes in this series. The anticipation of witnessing the kids growing up in the werewolf community will keep me wanting more and more of this author's series.

    Finally

    Yes it was a little short. Yes it was an extremely easy read that seemed to be missing some of the in depth layers that we've come to expect from Armstrong. However, it was wonderful to finally see the family and read more about the twins instead of having them merely mentioned here and there.
    Although I must say I was not a fan of the added illustrations placed within the ebook, if I wanted to read the graphic novel I would have. Even the small amount of pictures was annoying, let me keep the characters in my head the way I want, if I want to see them through another persons eyes I'll be sure to pick up the graphic novel version.

    Great!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this novella! I think that Clay and Elena will always be my favorites, although I love everything that Kelly Armstrong writes. It was nice to be immersed in their world once more. Fast moving mystery and action, and all the wit and humor that I've come to expect with this author. Read it!
