Book Description

Sixteen-year-old Leah Grant has given up on being normal. She'd settle for stopping the voices in her head, intrusive visions of the future, and better odds of making it to her seventeenth birthday.

That's the thing about pretending to be human in a world where magic used to exist - at any moment, her cover could be blown and she'll be burned to death like the rest of the witches.

Everything changes when she loses control of her powers and flees the orphanage she grew up in. She desperately wants to be invisible but finds her face plastered on every news channel as humans panic over the possible resurgence of her kind. And now the hunters won't give up until they find her.

Making friends for the first time in her life and falling in love with one of them drives her to discover why she is unlike any being she's ever met - human or otherwise. The dangerous powers inside of her that would repel Nathan, her new, handsome reason for living, are priceless to some. The locked up forever kind of priceless. And to others, they are too dangerous to allow her to live.

Let's hope she can stay hidden.

Book Two: Lost
Book Three: Shattered

3.0 out of 5 stars YA fantasy with a darker side August 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
3.5 Stars in my Sky!

I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review

Leah is a witch in a world where magic is considered bad and supernaturals are hunted. Living in a very Gossip Girl style boarding school, Leah is a socially awkward outcast. After a lifetime spent trying to hide her powers, Leah suffers from depression and genuinely believes she is evil (think normal teen self-loathing and throw in bullies, secrets and unknown powers and you sort of understand where Leah's coming from).

When most people channel their rage inward it usually erupts out in a fit of rage. With Leah her rage includes terrible powers and a loss of control. After a really close call, Leah who later goes by Chris/Christine, is pulled from the school and is fully submerged into the supernatural community. I like how M. Lathan slowly introduced new elements to the story and didn't overload her readers with too much in one go. First witches, then shifters and other sorts of supernaturals.

I really liked Leah/Christine's love interest Nate. Although I did think he was too good to be true at times, but after a certain revelation he acted as I would have expected and became a more realistic teenage boy.

A lot of the story focuses on world building and on Leah/Christine's self-loathing. It was nice to see her find a sense of belonging by the end, but I liked the sense that this was only the beginning. I think this series has the potential to be great. There were a few grammatical errors, but these can be fixed easily and didn't really detract from the story. I did find some of the dialogue a bit young, but I think this was to reflect Leah/Christine's social awkwardness and lack of normal interaction with other teens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow September 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
At A Glance
I was drawn in right from the beginning with all the mystery, and my eyes wouldn't leave the page as I was shocked by the many reveals. Hidden is an exciting read.

The Good
Many may say the beginning was slow and confusing but I thought it was perfect. I literally had to pry myself away from this book just so I could tell people how much I was loving it. I loved the world Lathan created. Leah (who will become Christine as the story goes on) is supposedly the only witch left in the world after the supernatural war where the humans won. Now Leah lives everyday in an orphanage in fear of killing the bullies who torment her every day. Because Leah is scary talented with her magic and she feels like any second she can snap and finally hurt someone. But a witch, Sophia, comes and rescues Leah before she does something she'll regret. She is offered shelter and friends of the witch and shapeshifter sort. But nothing is as it seems. There are people looking for her. Some want to help her, some want to kill her. The question is, who can she trust, especially after she finds out who she really is?

Leah is such a lost soul. She is an introvert to the extreme. She thinks she is the last witch on earth and fears that she will reveal her powers one day. She can read people's minds so she knows when the horrible girls at the orphanage are going to torment her. I was so excited when she was saved. But it took her a long time to come out of her shell. After all those years of abuse, who could blame her? She really grew as a person in this book. When she starts spending time with Nathan, a shapeshifter, she finally gets to feel what it's like to have a friend. But they become so much closer than that because of their similar pasts. Leah is put through the ringer in Hidden.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hidden June 13, 2013
Format:Paperback
I wanted to start out this review by talking about the cover for a little bit. I really like the cover, but I love it after reading the book. I think it is the perfect cover for this story. There are just so many things that I like about it. I love how it is black and the girl in the middle is not only not the focus, but is kind of grayed out so that she is secondary to the blackness around her. That is just how Leah, or Christine was for a lot of the first half of the book. I think the cover goes great with the story and that just makes me like it even more. Ok, now onto the rest of the review. Hidden was a really interesting book. It had a bit of a slow start. Not really uninteresting slow, just kind of depressing slow. I was so sad for Leah. I just wanted to hug her and tell her that she is such a sweet girl and not to believe everything. I was so excited when she was taken from her awful environment and those mean girls.

Hidden is very mysterious. I think that was a lot of the appeal for me. I didn't always know exactly who I could trust and what everyone's motives were. I thought there were plenty of twists and turns in the story and all of the characters, even the secondary characters added to the overall story progression and plot. I really liked how everything and everyone was incorporated into the story. As for the twists, I saw a few of them coming but there always seemed to be something extra up M. Lathan's sleeve. She is a tricky one and I loved her writing style because of that.

My favorite part of the book was the relationship between Christine and Nathan. It was so crazy to see how well they worked together. I loved how similar both of them are, they can relate to each other so well. Everything about the two of them is adorable and natural.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little unnecessary innuendo.
Overall fairly enjoyable. A little unnecessary innuendo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun not run of the mill story
It was super fun to read this book. Not following the typical "formula" for young fantasy books, it was refreshing to read about what it's like to not be powerful and popular.

First of all I love this book and it is really interesting because it takes you through her life but I don't think that it should have so much kissing and almost deaths.
