Review: Hidden by Marianne Curley

Title: Hidden
Author: Marianne Curley
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Rating: 5/5 stars


 Ebony has always known that she is different. Her violet eyes mark her out, and her protective parents have kept her in a gorgeous valley, home-schooled, safe from everything—almost as if she’s being hidden. But she’s changing: glowing, getting more and more beautiful, and stronger than anyone knows. Ebony can’t stay hidden for ever, and when she meets complicated, intense Jordan, something explodes inside her—something that can be seen from the heavens; something that changes everything. Ebony is a stolen angel, concealed on Earth. Now the heavens have found her, they want her back.

My thoughts: 

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. 
I absolutely love stories about angels. They're one of my favourite creatures, so I was excited about starting this book.
The story is told from two perspectives: Ebony and Jordan. 
From the beginning we know and learn nothing about these two characters, so throughout the book we are kept in the shadows, but eventually learn that they are good characters. Ebony knows there's something different about her, and in this novel, she discovers her real self.
I thought there was a weird romance going on between Ebony and a certain character I won't mention in case of spoiling. I didn't expect her to fall for him.
In the beginning we are entered into Ebony's life and learn she lives with two parents. 
At the end, it left me in a position where I wanted to know more and to read on. It was a definite cliffhanger. 
I really love the cover of the book. I think it's gorgeous with the feathers floating around the girl's head, and one in front of her eyes like she is in the unknown. 
In general I thought the storyline was good, and I did enjoy the book and can't wait to continue. 
Overall I give this book five stars because I did like it, and would definitely recommend to all; especially if you - like me - love books about angels.
