Cover Reveal: Hidden by Sophie Jordan

A dangerous journey.
Shattered bonds.
Undying passion.


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.
I feel in love with this trilogy since the first book, because it was one of the first books with dragons. And I’ve been following this series, luckily this is the last book, because I can’t wait to know what happened after Vanish, that ending was so cliffy for me.

Book Blurb:

An impossible romance.
Bitter rivalries.
Deadly choices.

To save the life of the boy she loves, Jacinda did the unthinkable: She betrayed the most closely-guarded secret of her kind. Now she must return to the protection of her pride knowing she might never see Will again—and worse, that because his mind has been shaded, Will’s memories of that fateful night and why she had to flee are gone.
Back home, Jacinda is greeted with hostility and must work to prove her loyalty for both her sake and her family’s. Among the few who will even talk to her are Cassian, the pride’s heir apparent who has always wanted her, and her sister, Tamra, who has been forever changed by a twist of fate. Jacinda knows that she should forget Will and move on—that if he managed to remember and keep his promise to find her, it would only endanger them both. Yet she clings to the hope that someday they will be together again. When the chance arrives to follow her heart, will she risk everything for love?

My Thoughts:

I liked the first book and was happily waiting for the next one on this series, especially because I needed to know how Jacinda was going to handle the exposure and having to go back to the pride after everything that happened.

So I bought this one on the same week as the release and before I even started to read some reviews were popping up and was a bit disturbing what people were speaking about, so I decided to wait and when the Harper Imprint challenge was up I started to read.

Is a fast book and mostly is setting on the pride after Jacinda, Cassian and Tamra return. Things are not good for Jacinda and after losing almost everything her sister finally receives her dragon power.

Return was difficult for everyone but Jacinda had a worst time, because everyone is blaming her after leaving and the only way for things to go back how they used to is accepting Cassian as her partner and let the pride rule her life.

So knowing Jacinda as we do, she chooses the hard way and also has to deal with Will; he finds the pride and now is trying to save her.

The end has a cliff, but overall is a good book. YA until the end so just a couple of kisses. Very enjoyable. If you liked the first this is a nice series.

Why I Started This Book:

First of all, I loved this cover, the eye with the thin pupil drove me in like nothing else. Second in all the blogosphere I read great things about it, and according to the summary it was the kind of book that drives me crazy, so went to my reading list very fast, and I read it in one single day, wow.

Summary:


A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.


Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.


Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will’s dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She’ll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.

Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.

Caracters:

My Thoughts:

Jacind Jones is very special! Her whole life has been played and selected by the elders of her village, because of what she is. Jacinda is a fire breather draki, she is powerful and dangerous, and like any other teenage she break rules.

In the begging of the book we discover that Jacinda likes to break some sacred rules, putting in danger all her village. She is off playing with Azure, her best friend, flying around unawere of the danger lying around. Hunters find the two playing and start to attack them. To protect her friend Jacinda becomes their only target, and in a very special part she meets Will, a good hunter. And he let her free.

The elders find out what happened and decide to do avery bad thing with Jacinda, that’s when her mother decides to leave. They run away, and since Jacinda is the only Draki among them, her mother choose a very hard place for Jacinda to live on, hoping that her draki will die.

Jacinda fights every day againts losing her part draki, and when she goes to school and discover that Will lives on that city and is the ony one capable of keeping her draki alive, she does everything to be with him.

But Cassian finds her and wants her back on the village, I truly belived in Cassian, let’s see if in the next book he’ll show he’s true face.

Why I Started This Book:

I was searching to buy Firelight on the internet when discover that Sophie has a great number of books published in historical romance area and couldn’t let it pass a oportunity to by the two of them. I’ve read him really fast. Both in one weekend and this week reviews are both for Sophie Jordan books.

Summary:

An Innocent Deception . . .

Lady Meredith Brookshire has every right to Oak Run. Now that she’s suddenly husbandless and penniless, where else would she, her addled father, and spinster aunt reside? Yet who should appear but Nicholas Caulfield, the new Brookshire heir, claiming the estate is rightfully his by law. The brute is as arrogant as he is handsome-besides, he’s supposed to be dead. And the only plan resourceful Meredith can devise to save her family from homelessness is a desperate scheme that may lead her to salvation or ruin . . . and the bed of the man she has vowed to hate.

A reluctant aristocrat, Nick does not trust this fiery, infuriating chit whom he suspects of subterfuge-yet who bewitches him with her innocent green eyes. The sooner he can get this tempting beauty married off to some stodgy old blueblood-and off his hands for good-the better. There is one slight problem, however:
Nick can’t bear the thought of her wedding any man but him. 

Caracters:

  • Lady Meredith Brookshire
  • Nicholas Caulfield 

My Thoughts:

The book begins with Lady Meredith Brookshire discovering that her recently dead husband has left her with nothing and his half-brother is suppose to be the new Earl of Brookshire. Since she doesn’t have a heir, everything that has been her home belongs to someone else.
Her husband has never been a true gentleman and she fears that his brother will kick her and her family on the street, so the only way she can stay there is if she has a son, the new Earl. The problem is her husband has never been to her bed chambers.
Meredith start a plot by pretending to be pregnant, and when the time comes she’ll adopt a orphan baby, because is the only way she can save her family from living on the street, since she belives Nicholas Caulfield is exactly like his brother.
Nicholas on the other end has suffered his hole life, and doesn’t want a title sice his father has put his mother and him f his house. He doesn’t have good memories and cant stand the thought to became something like that. He is sucessfull and very rich and by hinself with legal games and has a famous “cassino” in Town. 
When he discovers that Meredith is pregnant and start to have fellings for her, he decides to go back to his old life, since she doesn’t belong to him. 
They start to fight this strange fellings that bouth have but never as faced before, and a cat and mouse game is fun to read, and enjoable. 
I simple loved this book and her writing makes me cheer for Nicholas from begging until the very end. 

You Might Enjoy This Book If:

You like a romance in historical genre, with a guy who suffer in the past and need to discover a way to deal with it in the present. A very strong girl who fights for everything she things deserve.
