The Review

THE HIDDEN is the final book in The Hollow trilogy and I'm going to be honest with you here, I still have no idea how to describe this book to you without falling over and laughing myself silly. It was so . . . insane! Insanely romantic and insanely awesome at the same time! I'm truly speechless on how Jessica Verday ended this beloved series of mine and every time I think about how it ended, I just have this big smile plastered onto my face. In the third installment, it has everything a girl could ask for: high-running emotions, heart-breaking and tear-jerking moments, and it wouldn't be a Hollow book without some hot Caspian-loving!

For those who haven't read this series yet (which I hope most of you have), here's the main gist of the plot. The trilogy is basically about a girl named Abbey who falls madly in love with the handsome ghost, Caspian. And well, while this may seem like impossible love . . . but it just happens. As so does the trouble that comes along with loving a ghost. Now for this book I won't spoil anything considering some of my readers may not have read this series . . . so I'll just talk about the ending. It was a perfect ending! Seriously, I've been finishing a couple of book series lately but I haven't come across an ending like this one here in THE HIDDEN and it's also a plus plus when the author writes a very romantic and sentimental ending . . . one that makes you cry and laugh and sigh and smile and cry all over again.

Like I said before, I won't try to spoil it for you guys. But just getting down to the point . . . it was just super AWESOME! For THE HIDDEN, readers will have Abbey and Caspian back, both so deeply romantic and better than ever, and you can definitely expect some amazing twist and turns in this installment - ones you least expect to happen. Now if you haven't yet read this series, then please DO because you don't know what you're missing out on! With lot's of romance, action, adventure, mystery and some very intriguing characters in the mix, THE HIDDEN will please and excite readers all over again in this final conclusion!
