Goodreads Synopsis:

Jacinda was supposed to bond with Cassian, the "prince" of their pride. But she resisted long before she fell in love with Will—a human and, worse, a hunter. When she ran away with Will, it ended in disaster, with Cassian's sister, Miram, captured. Weighed down by guilt, Jacinda knows she must rescue her to set things right. Yet to do so she will have to venture deep into the heart of enemy territory.

The only way Jacinda can reach Miram is by posing as a prisoner herself, though once she assumes that disguise, things quickly spiral out of her control. As she learns more about her captors, she realizes that even if Will and Cassian can carry out their part of the plan, there's no guarantee they'll all make it out alive. But what Jacinda never could have foreseen is that escaping would be only the beginning....

Loyalties are tested and sacrifices made in the explosive conclusion to Sophie Jordan's Firelight trilogy.

My Review:

       The events in Hidden pick up right after the ending of the second book when Miram, Cassian's sister, was captured by the hunters. Jacinda, Will, Tamra, and Cassian set out to track the hunters down and save Miram. Along the way there are many arguments between Cassian and Will, while Jacinda is the buffer between the two. Trying to come up with a plan to enter the enemies territory is very hard. Especially, when they all can't get along. Jacinda is finally bonded to Cassian, but she chooses Will over him. WHATTTT!!!? I will always be Team Cassian! He has been nothing but supportive to Jacinda. Sure he has the weight of the world on his shoulder, he's stubborn, cocky, annoying, but most importantly he has always been there for Jacinda. Hell, even his name is hot! And Will....what has he done!? Umm nothing! And all you Will+Jacinda fans can come at me with arrows for saying this, but I didn't like Will at all. He was annoying, and there just wasn't any chemistry between the two.

    At times Jacinda made VERY stupid decisions, which led her to be in this situation in the first place. If she had thought about her actions before diving head first then there wouldn't be so many problems that she had to deal with. Tamra on the other hand, finally comes into her dragon form and that scene is very beautiful. She also gets her happily ever after so at least that's good. Overall, an interesting take on dragons and I loved the lore behind it. I was hoping for more insight on the dragons in this final book, but the story mainly revolved around Jacinda.
