Summary: 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.
Review: Firelight is a series that I've been following since the first book came out in 2010. It was different, the romance was great and the plot kept you hooked. Of course when you really look at it, it's not that much different then the basic vampire hunter falls for vampire kind of story. Except this one had dragons. That's what hooked me for this story. The DRAGONS. They're a creature that has always mystified me and even the ones in Firelight aren't the normal dragons you usually read about.
Hidden is the last book in the series and while I was really looking forward to reading this one, it fell a little short for me. The story it's self was actually very short, and while the whole series was, I just thought this one need to be longer. Sophie Jordan packed so much into a very little amount of pages. Each scene felt like it needed more. Even the romance scene's needed more, even though I'm not a Will fan. Everything in Hidden was rushed.
While there was things I didn't like in Hidden, it was a good end to the Firelight series. It wrapped up all the important loose end. Yet it also kept a few things up in the air to keep you thinking. I've always liked that in a story. You keep thinking about the characters even after it's over and what will happen next to them. I would love to read more about Cassian if Sophie Jordan ever wanted to write a prequel, he has always been my favorite character.
Make sure you pick this one up in September if you've read the rest of the Firelight series. It's a fantastic close to the series and you'll get to see these great characters go on one last adventure. If you are a fan of the series bring some tissues with you, you're going to need it. The author didn't hold back when writing Hidden and some scene will surprise you. If you haven't read the series yet, I would recommend starting it now.
