Author: M. Lathan
Series: Hidden #1
Publication Date: November 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal
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.

Hidden starts off with the 'What am I doing here?' type of beginning. I was a bit confused at first, wondering who was that girl and what was happening and all of those questions that runs around in your head. This was a surprising book, there were a lot of unique things going on in here. This is probably going to be the next YA Paranormal hit.
We get to meet Leah, whose real name is actually Christine. At first, I thought she was quite weak in some ways but strong in another. There were times that I just wanted to shout at her and scream 'stand up for yourself!' but I know that she isn't the sort of girl to lose it like that.
And I seriously love love LOVE Paul, Nate and Emma. I swear, Paul is like...the joker in my brain. I laughed at everything he says, I couldn't help but just turn everything he says into jokes. He's just that funny. And I also love Emma and Nate. Emma was more of the weird best friend, while Nate was like the bigger brother (not literally) in the family.
M. Lathan did a great job at creating the humour and mystery behind this book! I really enjoyed the surprises that jumped out at me along the way. Even though I'm not much of a YA Paranormal girl, this book was really unique and I found myself enjoying this more than I thought!!
Pick up this book now! And the second book in the series, Lost, is coming out soon!! So keep your eyes out for it!!
