Hidden is a novella in the Women of the Otherworld series and chronologically falls after Frostbitten. Therefore this review may contain character spoilers for previous books in the series.
Elena and Clay want their very own family Christmas. They’ve rented a cabin in Canada and taken the twins. As soon as they arrive a mutt turns up at their door. Is he after the children or is he just being polite. She shouldn’t really spend their holiday working, but Elena can’t rest without knowing his story and whether or not he’s a threat to her family.
I’m finally getting round to reading the Women of the Otherworld novellas. Elena and The Pack are my favourite characters in the series, and these novellas are my last chance to read “new” stories about them now the series is officially complete. Hidden does fill in some gaps about the twins’ upbringing and isn’t just a filler story.
There’s not a whole lot of wolfiness in this one. It’s more about Elena’s indecision to tell the kids about what they are. Can they keep a secret? Is it harming them more to be ignorant of the dangers they face? Will they be disappointed if they never become werewolves themselves? Kate is already starting to ask questions.
I wasn’t fussed about the illustrations (I have the Subterranean edition hardback – I don’t know if they’re included in the ebooks). The kids look a bit like creepy doll children. In my head they are much more outdoorsy types. Just like their mum and dad.
If you fancy reading the entire series with novellas and short stories in order, Kelley Armstrong has provided a handy PDF checklist. A big re-read in order is definitely on my to-do list.
This book ticks off #9 on my Lucky 14 Challenge: Favourite Author.
