Blog Tour - What is Hidden

About the book: In a land of masquerades and mystery, Evie is a mask maker in Venesia, where masks represent rank and identity. When a cryptic bandit strips away Evie’s mask and destroys her home, she goes into hiding at the palace to find both a new identity—and revenge. Fantasy lovers will be caught up by the mystique, romance, and magic of "What Is Hidden."

My Review: Evie has been making masks in Venesia with her father for a long time. It has always been a a safe occupation, but not anymore. A man that has been nicknamed The Chameleon is going through Venesia stealing people's masks and also their identities. That very night, a man breaks into Evie and her father's home, kills her father, and sets their home on fire. Worse still for Evie, he steals her mask and leaves her the very mark that he wears on his face. Evie must learn who to trust and who not to trust, and she must keep her face hidden. Because in a world where a person's mask is their identity, one must guard their identity wisely.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Evie is a well-written character. I really liked all of the characters, especially Aiden, I was surprised that Evie hadn't figured out who he was by the time that he revealed his identity though. I thought that the story is really original, the plot is fun with twists and turns that you won't see coming. This is a book that you won't want to put down until you have read the very last page.

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
