Hidden by M. Lathan

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.

My Review:

This is a great paranormal genre story.

It is sad at the beginning for Leah/Christine being an orphan at the boarding school and being picked on daily. She has learned to shut down and be alone for as long as she can remember. That has targeted her as an outcast. But she starts to have different feelings and things happening to her. Her life is changed the day the "mean" girls have prank'd her too many times. Her fear turns quickly to pure rage, rage that she wants to take out on them. But with a flash of light she is removed from the situation- moved to a happier healthier home. She never wants to go back.

Then Christine starts to learn more about herself and actually being human. She goes through many emotions that she never knew she had and soon has friends for the first time in her life. But how different is she than her friends? Is it even worth it to have powers?

Some parts of the book dragged on with the day to day life of Christine. But you get to know her story well. I recommend this to anyone who loves paranormal and mystery.

There is a second story for Christine.

Three months ago, Christine Grant found herself, love, and impossible friends, while losing the memories of the biggest piece of her past.

Now, her powers are spinning out of control and must be tamed by the woman who saved the world, the same woman Christine is predicted to kill in less than a month.

Wanting to punish catty orphans was just the beginning. It’s only a matter of time before she discovers that the world is not as safe from her as she hoped it was.
