review Hidden AUTHOR Benedict Jacka

Alternate cover edition of ASIN B00HP4HC2SAlex Verus is a diviner who can see probable futures a talent that's gotten him and his friends out of many a tough scrape But what happens when someone doesn't want Alex's help Posted to The Literary Lawyerca This One is for the Fans 4 Stars If you haven't started this series I would not suggest that you start with this installment Had I not already become a big fan of Alex Verus and crew I would have been bored with Hidden This one is for the fans It answers a few lingering uestions introduces some characters we have been wanting to meet and gives us some backstory that was piuing our interest If you enjoy the series you will not want to miss this onePlot summaryAlex is at odds with his friends and has not been successful in bringing them all back together After one such effort Anne goes missing under mysterious circumstances The hunt is on to find where she is hidden and who is responsible Along the way Alex makes discoveries about himself and we are provided with some wanted backstory We are also introduced to characters that we have only heard about in stories What at first looks to be a simple rescue operation turns into something much deadlyThe GoodThis installment lays some interesting groundwork for future story arcs Some new characters are put into play and we are made privy to some previously unknown scheming As I said earlier this one is really directed to the fans It gives us SOME of what we have been wanting but not all In some ways it felt like an interlude in the series but ultimately laid groundwork for future installments Jacka seems to have a grasp on which characters the readers like and gives us enough of them to keep our interest while expanding others that will likely play a role in future installments The author show a deft ability at character development and it is on full display in this latest offering Unlike the previous four Hidden is almost exclusively a character novel While some may lament the reduced action I think most fans will appreciate the effort Jacka has taken to expand the characters' mythologyThe BadOverall I enjoyed the fact this was a character novel though I have to admit I was taken by surprise The plot was on the thin side and this will be an annoyance for some readers I would have also appreciated some additional reminder material throughout the story I hate when novels assume I remember nothing of previous installments and spend half the book recapping The problem in this novel is that there is very little of this There could have been to reorient myself to the significant number of returning antagonistsCan this Book Stand AloneNo In this case you must read the other books to appreciate this one It relies heavily on past encounters past plots and prexisting relationships A reader who picks up this one before the rest will likely find themselves very disappointedFinal ThoughtsFans of the series will not want to miss this one I am always excited when nagging uestions are answered I am eually pleased that Jacka provides some new uestions to fill the void left by the reveals In the past couple of novels this series has truly come into its own Early on I was making comparisons to my other favorite Urban Fantasy Series Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files and Ben Aaronovitch's Peter Grant series if you were wondering This series has set itself apart with a uniue world uniue magic system and great writing and it has suarely placed itself in my Top 3 Favorite UF series Don't look for a clone series here because you will not find
