Review of The Hidden by Jessica Verday

Book 3 in The Hollow Trilogy
By Jessica Verday

Star Rating: 

Genre: Young Adult
Number of Pages: 400

Time Spent Reading: Two Days

Synopsis:(From Amazon)
Abbey knows that Caspian is her destiny. Theirs is a bond that transcends even death. But as Abbey finally learns the full truth about the dark fate that links her to Caspian and ties them both to the town of Sleepy Hollow, she suddenly has some very hard choices to make. Caspian may be the love of her life, but is that love worth dying for?

After having spent so much time in Abbey's world, I must say I was completely disappointed in the end of her story.  The villain was predictable yet odd, and her parents were far too oblivious.  Although in the end she finally confronted her feelings about Kristen, her chosen path to correct everything was demented, with no thought how such an "accident" would influence others she knew.  I think she could have had another future, despite the ties in to the legend of Sleepy Hollow that Verday tried to use to justify her awkward choices.  In the end, this is not something I would want to see others emulate in life.  Though I appreciate the sentiment that you shouldn't give up or have to stop doing things you love when you're in a relationship, I don't think that lesson shines through strong enough to redeem the awkward ending of this otherwise promising trilogy.

Author Information: (From Amazon)
Jessica Verday is the New York Times best-selling author of The Hollow trilogy, The Beautiful and the Damned, and Of Monsters & Madness. She believes a shoe isn't a shoe unless it has a three-inch heel, and nothing beats a great pair of boots. When not daydreaming about moving into a library of her own, she can be found working on her next story, stalking antique stores, or buying vintage furniture.
