Oh my gosh let me start off by saying I give this book 5 stars! This book was so great when I got to the end I was like nooooooooo why can't it keep going. My favorite characters was Jared,Sally, Evelyn,Collin they allow were nice and caring . I disliked Karen,Felix,and morgana. I still can't get over what Felix did.

I liked the whole story behind it... there are secret groups that deal on different things... this one dealt with ancestors, like Merlin the magician, and the importance of keeping his line safe and keeping him away from what similar occurrences from the past. I didn't like some of the things, like the MC's family being assassinated because they were looking for her. I like that Jared and
Evelyn and up together regardless of all the people opposing their relationship because of history. I didn't ...more

The concealed was an amazing story. I personally feel like it was translated very well. This story had It's ups and downs but it was a great read. it was also very different. I can't wait for the next book. honesty one of my new favorite books.
Firstly, and I think most importantly, this book is set in the UK but throughout it is in American English (dorms, going downtown, etc). Secondly, this author has clearly never been to an Oxford college other than as a tourist as they do not work the way she says... (Tutorials are held in college, you sleep in a room in college - there are no "dorms", lectures are held in the various departments around the city, not in the college, you spend a huge amount of time reading in the library as you do ...more
I just finished reading this book. It was a freebie at amazon and had gotten many 5 star ratings so I thought... why not. I was on the lookout for a quick easy YA read. I got more than I bargained for. I enjoyed this book so much. It was a total surprise because frankly, I wasn't expecting much.
One of the things I liked so much was how the author wrote her characters. Perhaps it was the way I related to them, but they definitely had their own voice. I could really 'see' them. Even some of the mo ...more
I received this book for a review so here it is.
This book exceeded my expectations.
It was slow at times and I'd preferred more action, but the storyline was really good and very very interesting and satisfying!
The last 3 chapters and the end felt kinda rushed, but I liked it and it made me very excited for the next book!
I liked both Evelyn and Jared, but just loved Colin (so adorable and goofy).
The translation was good, you can tell it's been translated but maybe I wouldn't notice if I didn't ...more
