What is Hidden ~ Review

What is Hidden
By Lauren Skidmore

What is Hidden is a delightful story that just captures one's imagination and carries you away for the duration of the story.  What is Hidden is a Cinderella, The False Prince (by Jennifer A Neilsen), The Captive Maiden (by Melanie Dickerson) all rolled into one story and yet is both unique and charming.

I was drawn to this book by the cover - there is a vibrancy that just made me want to, need to read it.  And the cover is just the beginning. Get ready to be swept off to a land of mystery.

Venesia is a land where everyone hides.  Simple masks to masks of exquisite detail hide people from each other and tradition demands it.

Evie is a mask maker, having learned from her father.  Her dream is to learn from a master mask maker, to be able to one day create a mask worthy of the palace.  But when Evie's life is destroyed by the Chameleon she is determined to extract revenge on the man who has taken everything from her and Marked her.

But Evie must now hide who she is so that she can determine who has done this to her.  All the while Venesia is preparing for the Ball, the one where the Prince is expected to announce whom he will wed. And in true Cinderella style Evie hides herself away as a servant.

Truly a lovely story with a possible romance that you won't want to miss!  And I'm hoping for more books from Lauren Skidmore and if Evie and the Kingdom of Venesia happens to be in them I will be really, really happy!

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for my participation in this blog tour and my honest review,
