Release Day: Shrouded Soul

Posted by on August 7, 2014

Shrouded Soul is here!

Today, I’m celebrating with Clare Davidson as she releases her third novel in the Hidden series, Shrouded Soul.

What others are saying:

“Davidson has done it again with Shrouded Soul! If you haven’t read her Hidden series, you are missing out.” Graham Austin-King

I had the opportunity to read an advanced reader copy, but I will share more about that in a bit.

First, a little history.

Reapers Rhythm
Hidden #1

When everyone thinks your sister committed suicide, it’s hard to prove she was murdered.

Kim is unable to accept Charley’s sudden death. Crippled by an unnatural amnesia, her questions are met with wall after wall. As she doubts her sanity, she realises her investigation is putting those around her in danger.

The only person who seems to know anything is Matthew, an elusive stranger who would rather vanish than talk. Despite his friendly smile, Kim isn’t sure she can trust him. But if she wants to protect her family from further danger, Kim must work with Matthew to discover how Charley died – before it’s too late

Broken Bargain
Hidden #2

When you know magic is real, complacency is not an option.

It’s a new school year and ten months since Kim’s sister died. She wants to forget about magic, rebuild her life and start fresh. But it’s not easy when she has to lie to everyone: her family, best friend, Sophie, and secretive new guy, AJ.

But when Sophie’s grandmother falls ill, Kim can’t help but notice the parallels to Charley’s death. Convinced she’s the only one who can help, Kim sets out to discover what’s really wrong with Sophie’s grandmother.

And now for book three!

Shrouded Soul (Hidden: Book 3) is the penultimate book in the Hidden series.

Shrouded Soul
Hidden #3

Keeping secrets. Telling lies. Kim is protecting everyone. Isn’t she?

Kim’s secrets are pushing Sophie away, whilst AJ’s fears are damaging their fledgling relationship. Kim tries to reassure him, but she knows he should be worried. He should be running. She keeps telling herself they can all have a normal life, free from the influence of the Baneem—but it’s the biggest lie of all. 

The illusion Kim is clinging to is shattered when AJ vanishes. But he isn’t the only one put in danger by the information Kim is hiding. How can she defend everyone from enemies who keep growing stronger?

My thoughts

Nothing ever good comes from keeping secrets. Just saying.

Book three in Clare Davidson’s Hidden series grabs you by the heart and takes off running. It is awesome, intense, and it had my tearing up a quite a bit.

Kim is such a kick butt character. Not that she is going around kicking butt. I’m talking about her will. She is STRONG, stubborn, and, if it comes to it, she will die fighting for her loved ones. It’s her greatest strength, but also her greatest weakest.

Her decision to keep everything a secret from her best friend, Sophie, and her family is taking its toll, and all the lies are catching up to her. Her keeping secrets (and everybody else for that matter) is what triggers the events to start snowballing.

I was hooked from the start, and the tension just kept ratcheting, and me guessing. I was at a loss how they would pull through and resolve this massive mess our favorite characters have found themselves in, and the book delivers. Although, the ending isn’t as wrapped up as the first two books. This one definitely has a to-be-continued, leaving me with lots of questions. What’s going to happen next??? So it’s good to know that the author is already at work on book four. Eek!

On a side note: There is some profanity, but not overdone.

Highly recommended. But you will want to read the other two books first, Reaper’s Rhythm and Broken Bargain.
