Book Summary:

In Venesia, your mask is your life. It is your face, your rank, and your identity. Without a mask, you are nothing.

Which makes the Chameleon the most dangerous criminal in the land.

When  the Chameleon attacks the talented mask maker Evie and strips away her mask and destroys her home, she goes into hiding at the palace to find both a new identity—and revenge. But Evie soon learns that masks hide more than just faces…

Fantasy lovers will be caught up by the mystique, romance, and magic of What Is Hidden.

First off, I love this book’s cover! 
As I started to read this book, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. It seemed too transparent, to easy to untangle its mysteries. As I continued to read, I got drawn into the world of the book. I really like the world the author created for this book. And I really liked the characters. There really weren’t that many surprises in the book. But I did really enjoy the book all the same. The ending was open enough to leave room for future books, which I hope will come. I plan to read them if they do. I love fairy tale spin-offs, and this was good one.

  1. What a pretty cover! I think I want to read it just because of it!

    The story sounds interesting though.
