    As I wrote it (and rewrote it again and again and again until it was just what I wanted it to be) ... yes - I love it and can't wait until it hits shelves. Hope you all enjoy it!

    *FINAL RATING: 1.35 STARS*CATCHALLFirelight had some problems, but it was new and different and despite its unlikeable cast of characters was a fun and awesome read. I enjoyed Vanish much, much more. I gave it five stars. Although honestly, looking back at it, at this point in my blogging career I probably would've given it less. Hidden, sadly, just didn't impress me at all. I really wanted it to, but I just wasn't feeling it. It was an extremely lackluster book for me and an overall disappointment. This isn't a nice review at all. It's harsh. Very. I mean, I ended up giving this book one star in the end, so, you know.THE HEROINEJACINDAI've always felt Jacinda was on the whiny side, and in this book I felt it intensely. She was constantly second-guessing herself to the point where I wanted to slap her and ask her why she has to be so freaking stubborn in the first place. She constantly feels the need to rehash her feelings to the reader, as if we didn't get everything the first time she ranted. Also, she seems almost obsessed with Will, which is creepy on so many levels that I'm not even going to go there.THE LOVE INTERESTSCASSIANCassian is the only character than I actually like in these books. He's actually very interesting, and he really does seem to care about Jacinda (though honestly I don't know what is so desirable about her). He's a born leader, but he also is vulnerable. And he's just so…I don't know, hot. I mean, he is, and I really love him for it. He'll also sacrifice a lot for Jacinda. He's actually very selfless and clearly has a good heart.WILLI hate Will. I don't believe in mincing words, so I do. I hate Will. He's horrible and creepy and I just hate him. He constantly feels the need to assert authority and is constantly trying to tell Jacinda what to do, which is not cool at all. I feel like he's that kid who thinks he's a hotshot but is really (and pardon my language here) nothing but shit. He's gross.THE SISTERTAMRAI kind of feel like Tamra is such a random character. Honestly, she never really does anything. She whines a lot. Then complains. Then finds some sort of happiness, but of course at some point she'll just descend into whining again. Frankly, I couldn't stand her.THE PLOTAh, the plot.Well, it starts off pretty interesting, actually. There's this whole thing with the enkros facility, and what's going on there, and what will happen in the future and whatnot. I mean, it was actually pretty interesting, and I was looking forward to seeing where it was gonna go. I was even willing to ignore the gigantic plot holes that were big enough to hide a dinosaur in.Then it turned ugly real fast.It was clear by the halfway point that Sophie had no intention of answering pretty much all of the questions she raised in this novel. And she didn't, so I was right. I don't mind some open endings, but if you're going to open a thousand can of worms, you've got to give something. Leaving readers with a million questions generally pisses them off.It just felt so unnecessary. Why bother to do something like that? Just to be mean? Like, seriously. It just doesn't make any sense.I just…it made me so angry. It actually started off well, and then it all went downhill. It really did have legitimate potential. And then…ruined. In a moment.If I talk about this anymore I have the strangest feeling my fist will fly through my laptop, so I am going to top here. Now. And move on to something that will probably also make me angry, but hopefully in a different way.THE ROMANCESophie's brand of romance is just gross. At least, it's inappropriate for YA in my opinion. She also writes historical romance for adults and, um, it shows. There's one particularly awkward scene near the beginning that is basically completely pointless and not sexy or romantic at all, though I'm sure it was intended to be. I'm putting it under a spoiler tab, although it won't really spoil anything. Better safe than sorry. (view spoiler)[Jacinda is about to go into her draki form as part of their plan, and so she gets undressed but then decides that she just has to kiss Will, so she spins him around and kisses him. And then apparently he kind of just kisses her. It's weird and pointless and just disgusting. (hide spoiler)] It was weird and not hot. It was totally unnecessary. And throughout the book, there's just no spark. All they do is act like idiots for each other, and not in a cute way at all. Frankly, I have this romance. I like Jacinda and Cassian together, but, well, you know.THE WRITINGI don't really care for Jacinda's voice, so it was hard for me to appreciate Sophie's writing. Jacinda's voice just doesn't sit well with me and the phrasing is so awkward. Not only that. But the sentences. Are like. Really choppy. And drawn out. Also, the word choice is just weird. Jacinda doesn't talk or think like a normal person. She sounds very unnatural when she speaks and it's hard to reconcile her and her thoughts because of the way she thinks them.THE ENDINGI actually did cry a little bit at the ending, but only for the character I love. By the time I got to the end of this book, I honestly could've cared less what happened to Jacinda and Will and just wanted to finish already. I do like that at least at the very very end of the novel she didn't focus on the romance and focused at least briefly on something other than Jacinda and Will sucking face.WRAPUPSo, I will probably not be reading any more Sophie Jordan books. I don't like her version of a male hero. He just wasn't attractive to me at all. And I think it's fairly obvious that I hated the romance in these books beyond belief. So while this series started off pretty well for me, it fell short in the end. I honestly unfortunately cannot give you my personal recommendation.FINE.Read this review and more on Sparkles and Lightning!

    Sophie Jordan, what the hell?Why can't we all write like you.Even when it's completely unintentional, your writing leaps off the page and strikes my heartstrings. Even if this book was completely plotless and the characters all sucked and everything about this book absolutely sucked, I would still be forced to give it at least three stars due to its writing.Not to say everything else is bad, because it's not . . . far from it, actually. But now you get my point.I went into Hidden without re-reading or skimming through the first two books in the series, so I wasn't refreshed on what had previously happened. However, I did remember one key thing that happened at the end of the second book, the cliffhanger (you know what I'm talking about), the massive cliffhanger that left me curled up in the fetal position bawling my eyes out. Yeah, that cliffhanger, the one that made all other cliffhangers feel of lesser importance.Yeah, I remember that. Jordan shoved that deep in my gut last year (Thaaaaaanks). With that in mind, I was relieved to see the cliffhanger brought to rest in this book. What disappointed me about Hidden was the fact that the its length was totally hidden from me when I took it out of the UPS box. I mean, this thing is 260 pages. The first one was 320. Why the difference.Because of its short length, Hidden was fast-paced and tightly plotted. If you're looking for a nice, long book where the characters lounge around and have a lot of conversations and wait for action, this one is not for you, by any means. The first page throws you right into the action, right where Vanish left off. Everything is super right-after-the-last, and you don't really have time to catch your breath after big action scenes.Lemme just get this over with now: I LOVED THE END. I would shout this from the rooftops if I could. I loved everything about the end, even the fact that (view spoiler)[everything about their mission was put to waste when Miram ended up dying, even though it severely frustrated me at first (hide spoiler)]. I also loved the characters. Jacinda is a breathtakingly human narrator: she is emotional, shows heartbreak, and also is extremely badass somehow. Her courage is awe-inspiring. As far as the Will-Cassian debate, I think Jordan ended it nicely (and also faux-ended it nicely, somewhere in the middle of the book, which surprised me). I like who Jacinda ended up with, and I also liked how she had somewhat made up her mind before the very end of the book. I see that happen in a lot of YA, the love triangle's resolution happening in the last few pages. In Hidden, Jacinda has had some time to let it stir around in her mind, and her decision is more than just eenie-meenie-minie-mo.Basically, .["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Ohhh Cassian... *sigh* You are too good for Jacinda!This was my least favorite Firelight book. It's not because Jacinda (view spoiler)[doesn't end up with Cassian (hide spoiler)] but because she annoyed me. She was all over the place. You know, she has a boyfriend, Will? But she still has the audacity to be jealous when Cassian talks to Tamra, even though she's mostly saying how he loves her just because she's a firebreather and the most desirable dragon. Oh, please. And what about Will? Did she forget he's a hunter and his job is to hunt and KILL dragons? Sure, he didn't kill anyone but he's guilty by association. Then there's Tamra and her new guy. Oops, forgot his name. D-something. He's like Hey,baby. What's happening? *wiggles eyebrows* And she goes Why are you staring at me? *runs away* .... *comes back* I like you. Let's make dragon babies!

    I was asked to do a formal blurb for this book so I'm pasting it here. The FIRELIGHT series is a rare sparkling gem. I delved into the mystical world and discovered a fast-paced, gripping story. In HIDDEN I was again swept away in a whirlwind of thrilling danger, shocking secrets, and entrancing romance. Anytime my readers ask for a book recommendation, I always say, “Read Sophie Jordan!”

    I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS SERIES IS OVER!!!! NOOOOOOOO!!!I did not write reviews for the first two books in this series so I will keep this short. The Firelight series by Sophie Jordan is a must read. She has created an amazing series centered around dragons. Hidden, the final installment in this series, lived up to my expectations and more. Jordan tied up all the loose ends and wrapped it up in a little bow. Great series! Great ending! I want more!My Rating:Why,5 DRAGONS , of course!

    If you aren't team Cassian, you are dead to me. And I hope Hidden will be more fast paced, action packed, and mysterious than the last two. And, also, less angsty and hormones- induced. I don't know if I'm even going to like this book, since Jordan lost a fan here at Vanish. I'm still counting the calendar for this book, though. The cover is beautiful but not so original. Who else besides me thinks that Vanish was the best cover out of the series?

    3,25?De los 3 libros, este es el más flojo creo. El argumento va súper lento aunque pareciera que pasan muchas cosas. Nada me sorprendió del todo salvo por aquella escena donde está Miriam (you know). El final fue satisfactorio pero los primeros 20 capítulos meh Reseña completa en Gracias a los Libros.

    SpoilersJacinda along with her boyfriend, Will and her draki friends take on the enkros, in an attempt to save Cassian's sister from imprisonment and possible death.-The plot was unimaginative - Jacinda and co rescue Miram from the enkros and then get chased by hunters for the bulk of the book. It's only in the last few chapters were things of importance occur and Jacinda's pride acknowledge that they need to make changes to the way they live and have a leadership that's fairer — unfortunately Jacinda was unconscious for most of it and we're just given a run down about how things would change instead of witnessing it. There should have been more time spent on Jacinda interacting with her pride and fighting for a change, since that was one of the original arcs. The only plot that interested me was Tamra's relationship with Deghan and her finally being content with her draki self.-Jacinda was still as unlikeable and up herself as ever. She thought of herself as strong but she came across as was weak and whiny. She spent less than a day locked up by the enkros and she could barely handle that without breaking down — she wasn't strong or brave at all.Jacinda had low opinions of other female draki — she repeatedly looked down at Miram, Tamra and Lia. No other female draki was as clever, as good and as strong as her. I hated Jacinda's attitude towards Deghan and the way she disapproved of him and Tamra. She was such a bitch — she fell in love with a hunter but she got all worked up about Tamra falling for a fellow draki. The glimpses of Tamra and Deghan's romance was far more engrossing than Will/Jacinda. I would have preferred to read Tamra's POV just to see exactly how her relationship with Deghan unfolded.-Will had the personality of a plank. He was also really annoying, he kept throwing hissy fits whenever Jacinda wanted to help her friends when they were in danger - I don't know why she didn't call him out on his douchey behaviour.I didn't buy that he became more powerful than other draki just because he had some of their blood transferred into him — it doesn't make sense. -Jacinda's romance with Will was dull and her angst over Cassian was boring. I've never liked Cassian, he knew that Jacinda loved Will but he still made her feel guilty about it — she didn't owe him anything. Sure she was meant to have an arranged marriage with him but she had no say in the matter. I'm glad she chose Will even if he wasn't the most interesting of characters. I hated that Jacinda seemed to forget that Will was a hunter and made out like he was some innocent baby. It was dumb how Jacinda got all upset about dragging Will into the draki world. She was an idiot - Will was already a part of the draki world way before he even met Jacinda. Did she conveniently forget that he was a hunter and that he used to capture and kill Draki?Jacinda also claims that Will would never deliberately hurt anyone — again she just forgot that he used to hunt and kill her species.-Most of the time it was hard to tell whether Jacinda and co were in human form or draki form. In draki form they pretty much behaved like humans, they had hair and they talked — it just got a bit confusing.-I liked Lia and wouldn't mind reading a spin-off about her. I hope if there are any spin-off's that Cassian isn't the hero — he's just the typical, brooding, boring love interest.A disappointing read, mainly down to the predictable plot and rubbish heroine. This would have been a much more engrossing read had Tamra narrated. I would consider reading any future spin-off's if it's with a decent heroine.

    I've been trying my hardest to get over the lack of creativity this cover has...*ahem* Back to the point. I liked Hidden, it was good. But I feel like I'm falling back on that "it could have been better" pillow. I felt like a few strands were left hanging, and that things were kinda rushed. To start off, Jacinda's time with the enkros was super short. It literally lasted 49 pages before (view spoiler)[Cassian and Will come to break everyone out, as was the plan. (hide spoiler)] So basically one day. Jacinda was there one day. Not like there was much to see...containment cells, jerks in lab coats, other draki, ect. What I was truly disappointed by was the fact that enkros were so...boring. I was expecting some mysterious clan of freak lizard like creatures from the sound of their name, (what does enkros name even mean?!) or some rivaling creature group to the draki. But no, just cruel scientists. In labcoats.That boring.Readers meet a few new draki, though only one sticks around. Which brings me to the insta-love. Now I get that draki have this bond thing going on, but Tamara and Deghan's love bond was...quick. Too quick. Ultra-super-duper quick. Deghan meets Tamra, Tamra seems unnerved but then is interested! Deghan and Tamra are in love. And this literally happened between a moment of changing clothes. He shows up, she freaks out and changes into a draki, once everything is calmed down and explained and he stares at her like she is a fresh steak, she walks off awkwardly, changes, comes back, and then is like:So willing...The book was nicely paced, and some plot points and twists were very interesting. :) I found myself engrossed in the book, had some action, a lot of tension, we also find out about Jacinda and Tamra's dad, but then when it came to the villain of their dad's story, I found myself frowning. Finding out that (view spoiler)[Jace and Tam's dad was betrayed by a member of the clan, specifically Cassian and Miram's Aunt Jabel (hide spoiler)] was too much of a surprise. There was no hinting that he/she was evil, held grudges against their dad, or even why (view spoiler)[ she killed Miram. WHY DID SHE KILL MIRAM? Serious da fuq moment. What was the purpose of that blood shed? She just came, saw, stabbed, threw in river, and walked away without giving a single fuck. (hide spoiler)]All in all, I was okay with the ending, I got what I wanted. But I felt like there were still things left unsolved between Cassian and Jacinda, not to mention there could be a sister book with Cassian. The way his story leaves off, makes me scratch my chin suspiciously. What are you up to Sophie Jordan? I'm going to keep my eye on this...~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~THIS COVERis a disappointment. Jacinda? again?! Not to mention it is completely out of the style of the first two.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Final rating: 1.5/5 starsFinally, it's over!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY XDI just need to say this:it could have been so much better!! but sadly, it wasn't and that is my problem. It was action packed i admit but there is just something that bothered me. It was all too fast. It was practically jumping from one scene to another. So, she should have just made this series a little longer (in pages, not in books) because i found Hidden short for all of that.The thing i also didn't like, not just in this book, but in others as well, is the love triangle. Was it really necessary? I mean, what do Will and Cassian see in Jacinda? I don't even like her. She is just a stereotype teenage girl who is "a rare fire dragon", and hell yeah, she is wanted by her pride's prince and the hunter with guess what-dragon blood! Oh common, even Tamra is better than her, and Tamra does not even appear so much! Seriously Jacinda, I mean, why, why did this turn out into a freaking love triangle which is not even that interesting since we all know who she ended with.I am for team Cassian btw...Anyway, since she ended with (view spoiler)[ Will (hide spoiler)] i did not feel so disappointed, but, BUT, what happened with (view spoiler)[ "i am a dragon lady, hell yeah, and you are just a human who will live probably two times shorter than me!!" (hide spoiler)] They are just going to live happily ever after and pretend it is not a problem?If it was a book about Tamra and Deghan from the start, it would be awesome. And let's face it, Tamra's power is hundred times more unique than a fire breather. Also, even though i don't mind first person POV, i did mind it here. I think writing was more or less ok, but more to the less ok. I guess i minded it because it was all Jacinda, and it would be great if there were some perspectives from Will's and Cassian's POV. It was interesting, and it was nice time killer, but not good enough for higher than2 starsit's officially 1 star (including all three books).["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    ahh yes, yet another one. Personally, I think they should leave little brat with the hunters, but whatever. -missrosey :]Update after:Yay finished it! This was good! I'm teetering on a 3.5/4 stars. Hmm.I don't want to list every single thing that happened in this book, so I'll just say a few things:I really enjoyed this series. The characters never really bugged me, and (thank goodness) I always really liked Jacinda. And Will. *swoon* Honestly, being the coldhearted beast I am, I would have left Miram with the hunters. But of course, that didn't happen. They did go and save her, and with that they introduced a couple new characters and one character who is super adorable. *love* So yeah, I always liked all of the characters in this series. (OH, and I call dibs on Cassian.)Action-y parts. Yay! This book hardly left me bored. There was always some kind of craziness going on. Don't get me started on those last couple chapters. (Or the whole book, rather.) One thing I have to list that's a spoiler (sowwy) (view spoiler)[So, they save Miram. And then she gets killed?! I'm not going to say that was a huge fail, cause Tara's whats-his-name boyfriend was saved and they also saved like, a bajillion other drakis, but still. That sucks. I never really liked her anyway but.... Still sucks. For Cassian :'((hide spoiler)]The love triangle didn't bother me as much as in the last book. It felt as though Jacinda already made her "decision" or whatever. And yay for the decision she made! (view spoiler)[I still call dibs on Cassian. (hide spoiler)] Both Will and Cassian are totally swoon-worthy. So, yeah. *cough* The ending was great. It was kind of open-ended so you're all like, "What's going to happen AFTER that?!", but not in a bad way. In a a sweet way. :3So, I'm going to end this train-wreck of a review here. I'm sorry. I'm lazy today and I have a cold, so. *excuses* But yeah, this was good. I'll settle for a 3.75 stars, just cause it wasn't like, spectacular. I still really enjoyed it though. :D So, I bid my farewells. (Is that how you say that? Ugh, nevermind.) Ta ta Firelight series! You were awesome. I shall miss you! Baiii for noooww! :D-missrosey <3

    More action and less kissing please. Jacinda, torch Cassian for me, will you?Will, I wonder how many more secrets you got in your blood.Tamra, stay as you are, the books wouldn't be the same if you changed.Ok...best cover yet....very mysterious. And darker, that seems to fit more than the lighter, more girly looking covers. This one actually looks like she's some ancient dragon race...

    Enjoyed this series on audio. I felt the ending was a little unresolved. Not much happened with the hunters and Encros or whatever their called. The romance and family stuff wrapped up nicely. I felt like Jacienda and Will were a little bit too much insta love. And I know Will is 18 but he basically just ran away from his family. I mean where will they get money? I'm just thinking too logically but I wanted more resolve with Will and his family.

    HiddenFirelight #3Author: Sophie JordanRelease Date: September 11th 2012Reading Level: YAGenre: Fantasy/DragonsPublisher: Harper TEEN*Review*After the events of Vanish where Miram was captured by the Enkors (dragon hunters) after failing to listen to Jacinda--Jacinda, Cassian, Will, and Tamra, have banded together in an attempt to rescue her before she is tortured and experimented on. Jacinda, Will and Tamra had planned to leave the pride once and for-all and never look back. Cassian is along because he and Jacinda are "bonded" and they can feel each others emotions and know what the other is feeling and thinking. Plus, Jacinda feels responsible for allowing Miram to fall into the hands of the Enkros without putting up much of a fight.Jacinda has grown leaps and bounds from the first novel. She is the one most involved in the rescue and discovery that there are other Dragon's out there that she has never met before. She really seems to understand now that she has responsibility to others, and she just can't run away when things getting rough for her. One of newer dragons, Deghan or the gray one, ends up becoming part of the solution to rescue Miram and later, in saving Jacinda from Cassian's cousin Corbin and the hunters who find the prides hideout. Hidden is the final novel in the Firelight series and wraps things up nicely into a little bow so that readers won't walk away from the series feeling disappointed or angry that their favorite character(s) didn't get exactly what was coming to them. Hidden reveals several really interesting surprises that I didn't see coming. The ending will leave readers with a mixed feeling of finality and wanting more from the characters we've come to know over three books. Yet the ending will also leave your mind free to roam and to think about what the future holds in store for Jacinda, Cassian, Will, and Tamra as they each step into the future with something to hold onto. I think readers will enjoy the newest addition to the series and what his arrival means for Tamra's future with the pride. You will see an entirely different aspect of Tamra in this edition. I'm pleased to say that she's actually grown a spine and isn't so irritating.For those who know how much I abhor 3-way love triangles, Hidden is actually done with respect to both characters vying for Jacinda's heart and attention. I can honestly say that I don't hate, or dislike either Will or Cassian after reading Hidden to it's ending. For those wondering if I have anything negative to say about this book. Let's just say that IT'S TOO DAMN SHORT and I WANT MORE! and leave it at that. I liked how Jordan tied up the loose pieces with not only the fate of Jacinda and Tamra's mother and father, but to expose the person most responsible for what happened to their father.*Read as part of the Once Upon A Twilight Blog Tour*

    Un hermoso final que me dejó con ganas de lagrimear.Si le buscamos las quinta pata al gato, si escarbamos un poco hay cosas que quedan haciendo ruido. Me hubiera gustado ver qué más pasaba con Cassian, Tamara y Deghan (ojala sean la base de otros libros futuros :3), pero esta es la historia de Jacinda y Will, y fue muy lindo ver que consiguieron aquello por lo que tanto lucharon.

    Ok, I just finished reading this, and I have to get it off my chest: When did two of the main characters in this series become THAT COUPLE THAT HAS SO MUCH PDA THAT EVERYONE HATES THEM?What is the point?! This is pretty much Jacinda's thought process:Jacinda: Gasp! A life-threatening situation has just popped up out of nowhere! Every decision is critical, and ever second counts...Oh, well, better make out with Will for half a page!This series was really not one I enjoyed to begin with, but this pushed me over the edge.Here, I'm going to go through the book and take notes on how many times they kiss, just to prove to myself that I'm not crazy for being annoyed by this. From here on out there may be spoilers, because, like I said, they kiss at pretty much every major plot point in the book.1) pg.3-Jacinda kisses Will (while she's naked) in front of an audience.[At this point they are separated for TWENTY-FOUR HOURS (the horror!), so there's a bit of a lull. But it gets better, I promise.]2) pg.51-Will kisses Jacinda (when they should be focusing on escaping) in front of an audience.3) pg.62-Will kisses Jacinda (they think they're about to die, which would make this understandable, but they think this all the time) in front of an audience.4) pg.93-Jacinda kisses Will, then there is a slight gap during which they talk and she cries, which leads to:5) pg.94-95-Jacinda kisses Will, but this should probably count for multiples, since this is one of their make-out sessions.6) pg.109-Will kisses Jacinda (ooh, and this kiss is "heated", which makes it so much more special and completely different than their other kisses).7) pg.113-Will kisses Jacinda in front of an audience.8) pg.121-Will kisses Jacinda (because they're fleeing for their lives, again).9) pg.130- Will kisses Jacinda (though this one I forgive, because they're playing the ditzy teenage couple-which isn't an act, really-to escape some hunters) in front of an audience.10) pg.155- Will kisses Jacinda.11) pg.171-172-Jacinda kisses Will (awww, he's pushing her against a brick wall, how sweet).12) pg. 188-189-Jacinda and Will kiss each other (this is my favorite one! This full-blown make-out session was cut short when Will was hit on the head with a rock. That's right, they were so busy with each other they didn't notice a draki "in full manifest" walking up to them holding a ROCK. Now that's devotion.).13) pg. 246-Will kisses Jacinda (right next to her twin, who's kissing another guy. Double the PDA) in front of an audience.14) pg. 258-Jacinda kisses Will.FOURTEEN. FOURTEEN kisses/make-out sessions. Now, this doesn't seem like a whole lot, but I would say most young-adult novels (at least fantasy or dystopian, ones that have some other component besides romance) have three passion-filled scenes, max. But this book only had 260 pages. With fourteen smooches, that's one kiss every 18.5 pages! Now do you see why I was going "oh, they're kissing again? Big surprise"? Ok, rant over. I'm planning on writing a more cohesive review of this series, but I'll put that under the first book, Firelight. That had just been building up in me since the fifth kiss, and I needed to scream it to the world. Thanks for reading!

    NOOOOOOOO!! It's ENDED!!! *curls into a ball and sobs* And look. I love Will. *glances away* Really. I do! It's just...sometimes...I...I kinda think that Cassian is pretty dang awesome! THERE! I ADMITTED IT!! And all you Will + Jacinda shippers can now shoot your little Hunter arrows at me and hunt me down! But in all honesty, Cassian broke my heart in this book. The fearless warrior, unrequited love, the weight of responsibility on his shoulders and his unwavering bravery - the fact he still protects Jacinda and Will, even though she has decided to choose Will over him. And I mean, come on Jacinda - even his NAME is hot! So is the name 'Will' for that matter...and now I am straying WAY off topic, mentally trying to pick which actor would look best as Cassian...Will is just a tad clingy. And insecure. I mean, sure - Jacinda is bonded to Cassian. Sure Cassian is steaming hot. But Jacinda has sacrificed so much to be with him that the least she deserves is his faith in her. Will's a great guy, but he needs to put more trust in Jacinda's love for him. Seeing that she basically trusts him with her existence, him being an ex-Hunter and all that jazz.Tamra was kick-ass in this. I liked her so much better in this book. Here's to gutsy younger sisters!! The ending was a little comme ci, comme ça as the French would say. I was so sitting on the fence about it - Jacinda's love-life decision, her decision on whether to leave the pride or not...hmm. I'm still not sure whether she made the right decision, but hey - she's a free draki-girl!! She can do what she wants, and I guess the ending not being a cliffhanger was something to be happy about! :D

    I admit it, I actually liked the first book.But after that the series went downhill.It just seemed like it was sprinkled with random stuff that had no point whatsoever!Here's how it went:Everyone is all happy and dandy!OH NO! HUNTERS!Everyone is happy again!SOMEONE GOT KILLED!Let's go back to the pride!But I don't wanna go to the pride!BUT I NEED TO!!!!OH NO!!! MORE HUNTERS!!!FIGHT!FIGHT!FIGHT!Kiss me, Will!SHE KILLED HER!!!!Yay! We're happy again!I know that this made zero sense whatsoever, but this was seriously what the book was like! (except in a different order)EVERYTHING WAS COMPLETELY RANDOM!!!EVERY TIME EVERYONE WAS HAPPY, OH NO! BAD THINGS HAPPEN!AND JACINDA KEEPS GOING BACK TO THE PRIDE!!! MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!!Just so we're clear: I'm really really thankful that this series is over with!

    De plano me salté algunas partes de romance. no tenías que describirme todos y cada uno de los besos.Hubo una subtrama que parece un poco metida con calzador. Me molestó un poco que Will haga desplantes, aparte ¿nunca se mencionó nada de su escuela? ¿De plano va a perder el semestre por andar de héroe?El papel de Casian me encantó, pero me sentí triste por él.

    I liked this book better than the second, this is back to the level of book 1. Of course, you start right at the cliffhanger of book 2, so that is a good start. A lot happens in this book, there are a lot of turns in the storyline which I really liked and some of them were really unexpected. There is some lovetriangle in it but I like how everything turned out, it is all nicely wrapped-up. A good ending of the series and a fun read.

    Von mir gibt es 4.5 Sterne für diesen Abschluss :) Insgesamt bin ich echt zufrieden, bin innerhalb von zwei Tagen durch diese Seiten geflogen. Allerdings ging mir Will diesmal etwas auf die Nerven, er war mir auch ein bisschen zu verständnislos und egoistisch, aber ansonsten habe ich nichts zu meckern:)

    My predictions::: (SPOILERS ALERT for many reasons) I think she's going to pull an Andrea Cremer and have Cassian killed (just like Cremer killed Ren). Which would suck since I fell in love with Cassian in Vanish. Sigh.

    I absolutely adored this book! I read the first two in the Firelight trilogy in the same day, and I devoured Hidden at the same speed. It is written so well... the action had me on the edge of my seat, the calm moments were just the right kind of quiet and the romance made me melt. I found that the narrative flowed so easily for me; I read this in about 5 hours with very little effort.Hidden picks up immediately after the events at the end of Vanish when Miram, Cassian’s sister, was captured. Jacinda, Will, Cassian and Tamra plan a daring rescue operation which involves Jacinda going straight into the lair of their most feared enemy. She faces her fears, and horrific experimentation, to find Miram and convince her to trust in their plan, even though no one has ever escaped before. Little do they both realize that even escape won’t be enough. The pace never really relents for long, despite quieter moments where Jacinda gets the chance to reflect on the choices she has to make. Who does she belong with? Will, the Hunter who makes her head swim with every touch - even though he isn’t a Draki like her, or Cassian, her gorgeous official bonded mate who quite literally knows how she feels? The protective feelings I had towards Will during Vanish reared their heads again this time, and once more I felt that he was threatened by Jacinda’s relationship with Cassian... just the perfect amount to keep me on tender hooks and keep the pages flying by. I think this YA book really benefits from Sophie Jordan’s romance writing as even simple moments between characters were very seductive; I could have purred!Not only was the romance just pitch perfect, but the elements of vengeance within the plot were also crafted beautifully. Jacinda gets a glimpse of what happened to her father, who disappeared early on in her life, and in the hunt for his betrayer something dreadful and shocking happens which really finishes off the cross-country chase in fine style.Jacinda is a strong character, with a healthy set of morals and a fiercely independent streak. She is considerate of others, merciful and a great role model for impressionable readers. She makes mistakes, but she works hard to correct them. Tamra also sees some really interesting character development during Hidden, which was pleasing to see as she came into her own as a Draki. She is the proverbial ugly duckling... initially unwanted and useless to the pride, but really becoming their most valuable asset by the end. It was very empowering reading her story arc. All the characters saw some kind of development though really, and that added to the strong sense of moving forward that came with reading Hidden.What I really appreciated is that the ending of the book seemed utterly appropriate for the series. Nothing happened that I felt was out of place, and when I finally closed Hidden, I felt a sense of peace, that this fantastic trilogy had ended as it should have, and I can really look upon it as being my favourite series of books. At no time in the series did I feel let down by the pace, or the characters choices; there was no dip in quality and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to eager readers of the paranormal genre. I just love these dragons!

    What a heart pounding, exciting, suspenseful conclusion to Sophie Jordan's Firelight series! WOW! Sophie does not hold back with all that happens during this one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride of a read. With secrets revealed, loyalties put to the test, love found, and other relationships tested, this story gave me everything I wanted and then some. There's moments of heartbreak, hope, suspense, sizzling scenes, danger, and a lot of the unexpected. This story has one twist after the other, which made it incredibly easy for me to sit down and read it in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. There is so much that happens in such a short amount of time, I had to know what was going to happen next.I loved the element of surprise the Sophie had in HIDDEN. There is a lot that goes on, and some things happen like I had hoped they would, just not in the manner I was expecting. For example the new romance the grows between two characters, some of the choices characters make, the shocking discoveries that are made at the beginning of the book, but the most shocking is the betrayal that happens. There's deaths and new characters that are introduced to this story that shake things up a bit. As a reader I loved that this storyline stays in constant motion and literally had me sitting on the edge of me seat, holding my breathe at times. Of course in true Sophie fashion she also left me sighing, and grinning like an idiot during other scenes. In my past reviews I've talked about my love for Jacinda, Cassian and Will. They are definitely some of my all time favorite characters, and I really liked getting to see them change, mature and grow up in a lot of different ways both through out the series, and within Hidden. This time around I was pleasantly surprised to find myself really rooting on Jacinda's little sis, Tamra. I enjoyed seeing how their relationship as sisters has grown, and evolved as the series has gone on and now wraps up. It's joyful and bittersweet all at the same time. Tamra for me has really grown up in ways I had not expected her to, and I really admire the person she's become. The introduction of the new draki Deghan is AWESOME!! I seriously loved his part in this book, and how he changes things up a bit. It's fabulous, and I have a feeling a few other readers will agree with me on him. There's not much more I can say about Jacinda, Cassian and Will that I haven't before. I adore these three, and though I've fought hard through out much of the series on which team I'm on, Cassian or Will, I loved that Sophie allowed me to see and understand Jacinda's choice, and why she made it. Her choice now makes perfect sense to me, as do the choices both Will and Cassian make. I don't think Sophie Jordan could have come up with a more perfect ending her series. HIDDEN is such an awesome read! Though I'm sad this series is over, I love knowing the direction each of the characters has taken and getting a small glimpse into the things that await them in their futures. *sigh* Be sure to go pick this book out when it's out in a few weeks! You won't be disappointed that you did.

    Earlier this year, I wrote that blog post about trying to finish more series and guess what? It hasn't gone so well seeing as I've finished only a handful of them, but figured it was about time to finish this series for good. There were some things that I loved: Cassian, brother-sister and sister-sister relationships, Tamra x Deghan (though (view spoiler)[it was pretty insta-loveish, but whatever; I SHIPPED IT!!! (hide spoiler)]), plus most of the questions were answered and loose ends tied; but to be honest.. I was mostly just annoyed. I liked Jacinda at the start of the series, but seriously, her stupidity is freaking annoying. (view spoiler)[When Cassian "died" she was so hurt and sobbed like a madwoman, but she didn't want to hurt Will's feelings and say she was hurting? WTF??? Your friend, the guy you were supposed to marry, just died and you want to spare your boyfriend's feelings by not talking about it and just walking around all hurt and pissed? (hide spoiler)] And then you say you didn't hear anything, because you were so wrapped up in all the kisses Will was giving you? Haven't we already seen that happening on multiple occasions? And let's not even talk about the "I'll not part with you ever again" thing when you KNOW it's not safe for Will, but you still drag him with you?? Ugh there are so many examples I want to point out, but I'm not going to frustrate myself with this. I know she almost always realized her mistakes later, but seriously? She was acting like a rookie draki in this book while she should have known better by now. I was also thoroughly annoyed by Will and Jacinda's constant kissing and handholding etc while the group was running and fighting for their lives and the hypocrisy (which Jacinda herself admitted too) about Tamra and Deghan when she herself was all about a guy who possibly could have endangered every single person in her tribe, and now she's giving Tamra looks and warnings? Just NO. YOU don't get to judge! And Will?? Seriously?????? You're being jealous and saying "you're never going to leave them or be with me" wa wa waaa when she's trying to protect her friends, her family and avenge well.. certain things? Please. Get a freaking grip! If it wasn't for this particular romance, the rating would have most likely been higher, but the romance made the characters act stupid and I just wasn't a huge fan of that. I probably would have loved the series more 4-5 years ago, but now that I've read so many books, this just doesn't stand out. I wish the plot had been more thorough since, while there were a lot of battles and life-and-death situations, only one of them took me by surprise (view spoiler)[LITERAL backstabbing (hide spoiler)] and most of it was pretty predictable. The ending scenes were quite nice though and as a whole, it wasn't a completely unsatisfying read, I just wanted more.Overall rating: 2.5 out of 5.0 More of my reviews can be found on my blog.
