200words (or less) review: While I was reading Hidden Among Us I thought about all these great things I wanted to say in my review about the book but when it came to writing it… well I’ve been staring at a blank page for a while now.
I didn’t want to start the review with “this books wasn’t what I was expecting” because I’d researched it before I agreed to read it. I knew Hidden Among Us wasn’t a glitter pretty star-crossed lovers story but Katy Moran still surprised me IN ALL THE GOOD WAYS.
So for a change here’s a checklist of why you should read this book:
- Three-dimensional characters
- Beautiful writing
- A dark and twisted tale full of the unexpected
- Relationships – all of them. (Family, friends and romance)
- Multiple POV narration that works (you feel so much for all the characters)
- The Hidden
And of course the promise of more…
