Hidden by Sophie Jordan

Hidden (Firelight, #3)

Hidden (Firelight #3)
Author: Sophie Jordan
Publisher: HarperTeen
Rating: 5 Fire Breathing Stars! (too lame? :P)
Team: OMG! I LOVE BOTH BOYS. I CAN’T PICK. I CAN NOT EVEN...JUST...BOTH! Team Wassian?? Yep. Team Wassian. 
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.~Goodreads

Holy. Freakin’. Amaze. This book was incredible and jam-packed with angst and romance and emotional turmoil and just wow! What a way to end the series!

Hidden surprised me in so many ways. Just when I thought Jace and her crew were safe, I was all, “WAIT! I still have 200 pages left! THEY AREN’T SAFE!! *dun dun *SOB* dun!*”

I was scared. I was happy. I was heartbroken. ANNND I had the sniffles at LEAST three times while devouring this book.
Sophie Jordan delivered breathtaking imagery and heart-stopping intensity with every flip of the page, once again her writing enchanted me. 

The characters were as amazing as ever and I’m SO, SO SAD to say goodbye to them. Especially Will (omg do you know how many daydreams I’ve had about him?? Ehem I mean...)

Jace was totally kick-ass and in charge but she also had moments where she broke down and I loved her even more for those. She had to make a lot of tough decisions in this book and handle some pretty effin' scary situations but she's a fire-breathing pro at them! 

Will was *sighs*...Will was still and will always be absolute perfection. He’s so effing loyal and supportive and trustworthy and gah! He’s just a handsome heavenly hero! I am so in love with this earth-bending boy! SO. IN. LOVE. ‘Nuff said.

But that’s not to say the other hero in the story doesn’t have a special place in my heart. Cassian was incredible in this installment as well. He proved himself to be just as loyal as Will AND just as self-sacrificing and just as caring. He deserves to be happy. I want him to be happy....With me...<3>

But I think the character who grew the most throughout the series was Tamra. She went from being a selfish-bitchy brat to someone who's kind and helpful and brilliant. Also her new love interest?!? Yum. They are so effing adorable together too! I WANT A TAM/DEGHAN SPIN OFF!! Please? :)

It’s always sad when a series comes to an end and the Firelight Trilogy makes no exception, but overall, I’m happy with how Hidden turned out! (I still wouldn’t mind a book 4, 5, & 6 though :P )
