Overview

Sixteen-year-old Leah Grant has given up on being normal. She'd settle for stopping the voices in her head, intrusive visions of the future, and better odds of making it to her seventeenth birthday.
That's the thing about pretending to be human in a world where magic used to exist - at any moment, her cover could be blown and she'll be burned to death like the rest of the witches.
Everything changes when she loses control of her powers and flees the orphanage she grew up in. She desperately wants to be invisible but finds her face plastered on every news channel as humans panic over the possible resurgence of her kind. And now the hunters won't give up until they find her.
Making friends for the first time in her life and falling in love with one of them drives her to discover why she is unlike any being she's ever met - human or otherwise. The dangerous powers inside of her that would repel Nathan, her new, handsome reason for living, are priceless to some. The locked up forever kind of priceless. And to others, they are too dangerous to allow her to live.
Let's hope she can stay hidden.

    Hidden is an interesting addition to the paranormal genre. The characters are complex, the plot line interesting, and the twists unexpected. Once I got into the book it hooked me until the end. I loved Sophia. I wasn’t expecting for her to be my favorite character but she grew on me. She was unfailing in her quest to save magical creatures and help Leah learn how to be a normal teenage girl.
    As for the relationship, I like Nathan as a character, I just don’t know how I feel about Nathan and Leah. The relationship seemed kind of rushed, especially once I realized that the entire book was supposed to take place in about a week, maybe a week and a half’s, time. There is a lot going on in the book and it seems like time just flew by. However, even with how rushed their story was, it made sense for the book and for Leah’s history. I’m not going to go into details but suffice it to say, it makes complete sense for her to be madly in love with Nathan once you find out more about her family, particularly her mother.
    On that note, I was not expecting the twist at the end. As Leah’s story unfolds and we learn more about her family, I thought I had her parents pegged. Boy was I wrong. What is first revealed is so much more elaborate. Lathan does a good job of keeping the twists hidden until she’s ready to reveal them. Thankfully, she wraps up the subplots by the end of the book while keeping just a few to entice the reader to want to read the sequel.

    SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!
    I was surprised. Leah started out really annoying. But there was something about how the book was written that made me keep reading. The author did what any skilled author does; take a character that needs some work and develop them into something extraordinary. I was impressed with it. Normally when reading about romances that start so quickly and move so fast, I am annoyed and quickly turned off the book. In this case, the author recognized that it moved fast and found a way for me not to find it nauseating. To say the least, I am impressed with M. Lathan's work and I am excited to read the next book in the series.

    ...

    It was alright, there wasnt much action and the plot seemed kinda of flat after a certain point. Like she develops and learns this new stuff about herself but from there nothing happens... all it is is moving to paris, loving nathan, watching movies, etc. at one point shes finally doing something and learning more from lydia shaw.... but then for some godforsaken reason, she decides to ERASE HER MEMORY... is she really THAT STUPID?!?! like honestly i was just so done with this book after that... i wouldnt exactly recommend annyone getting this

    Hidden is a very interesting young adult paranormal book. Leah,


    Hidden is a very interesting young adult paranormal book. Leah, the main character, is hidden away in an orphanage and is tormented by the other girls there. She has no friends, has never been loved, and has only had small moments of kindness shown to her. She believes that she is evil and must hide her true nature in order to remain alive. She has such a warped and damaged sense of self worth that it was a little hard to get through the first chapter but I am really glad I kept reading because the story and Leah undergo a change.

    She discovers who she really is and that the things she has believed about herself and others of her kind are false. She becomes more confident and in control. It was fun getting to see her grow into accepting herself and her powers and at the same time acknowledge the goodness that she has always had.

    Of course, Leah’s growth is only part of the story. There are also hunters, shifters, copies, witches, and a long-lost mom that reappears. At times you are unsure of whom to trust and feel betrayed right along with Leah.  There are a lot of twists and turns that keep you guessing and the dual nature of Leah is interesting to observe.

    This book is one that I found myself thinking about a couple of days after I finished and wondering what else is going to happen to this group of characters. I am interested in reading the second book, Lost, to see how Leah fairs with her new confidence and powers.

    Loved It!!!!!!!M

    I think this book was amazing. In the beginning I hated Leah, but once she realized she could be happy, she really grew on me. Honestly, I can totally relate wanting to be invisible, so I was instantly hooked. If you like the paranormal, romance, action, and adventure, this book is for you!

    A good summer read. Far too many editing errors make you reread a sentence over and over to figure it out. The plot and characters are well thought out, however, be prepared to try and keep track of everyone and everything that goes on in this book or you'll end up needing to take an aspirin for brain strain. Try it, you'll probably like it. Jp

    Exciting read

    Exciting read; leaves you in suspense right up till the end. Kind of eariy and depressing at first, but the mood lightens considerably toward the end. The intruiging tale of a girl trying to find herself amidst a new world full of magic and monsters (aka hunters) There is also a good eal of romance and death do we part love.. 686 pgs. I highly reccomemd it for older teens and possibly adults.

Her powers get out of control grandma type figure who is a witch saves her. Takes her to large and beautiful home where other paranormal teens live. At the house there are some friends, foes, and a little more than friend possibilities. YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK,

    The beginning

    I am only a little ways into this book, but so far all she has been doing is bemoaning her lack of a soul, saying how she is such a monster, etc. If you searched for "depressed" online, I am 90% certain that a picture of this person will come up. She has not described where she lives, what year it is (or given any clues), or anything else factual. All I know so far is that a group of girls tease her, she thinks she is a monster, and there is a nun somewhere in the story. I might write another review if the story gets better later on, but so far the only reason I'm still reading is because everylne else says it is really good.

    Beautiful

    I absolutely love this story. I have already read it 4 times and I got it about 6 weeks ago! The writing is done very well and I have found that this book can be read with the rest of the series but it is also a very good stand-alone story. I recommend this book to any who enjoy magic and love of all kinds. ~LRose
