Yeah. I could've waited.

There isn't much I can really say about this book, except that it made me so profoundly sad. Not for the plight of the characters, and not in a great I-love-this-book way.

It made me sad because with this book, YA paranormal has finally crossed that uncrossable moral line: kill yourself to be with your boyfriend. End your life because of him.

And that is a line that should never have been drawn in the first place.

I don't even want to joke about this book. I don't even want
My real rating for this book is 3.5 stars, but I rounded it up to four

For months, after reading The Haunted, I felt like I was Juliet, waiting on top of my balcony calling out to my to my long-awaited lover to arrive as quickly as possible

Hidden, oh Hidden, where for art thou, oh Hidden...... because I fucking need you RIGHT NOW!! Ahem.....* coughs delicately and goes back to wailing for Romeo on the balcony*

So, was this book everything I excepted? Did Romeo come up the balcony and give me on
I cant wait for this book to come out. The Hallow and The Haunted were probally two of my favorite books ever.The characters are all so real and they are great story's so im beting The Hidden will be great to.

I promise you forever, whatever that is. Whatever i can give you. You have it all. All of me

Stop this right now
Authors, be aware of the audience you're targeting. Be aware of how fragile some minds are. You have a weapon here and this book is very dangerous.
I am so mad right now.

So, the last book of this trilogy. I didn't like the first one, i didn't care much for the second one. But i have this need to finish a series once I start it. No matter how bad it is(Well except for The House of Night books).
So when I saw this book at our local library, I just picked it up and decide
What a sad way to end this trilogy. I'll have you know I both loved The Hollow and The Haunted. But I can’t say that to The Hidden. I felt half empty to be perfectly honest. When I finish the book, I felt so unsatisfied. Like “is that it?” “Is that all?” It took three books, only to end it where it started.

Once again there are a lot of unnecessary events. I’ll gladly skip them all and went ahead to the few remaining pages of the book. You know why? Because that’s where the answers I’ve been dyi

LOVE THIS COVER!!! It's the best one out of all three books.

This book made me cry soooooo many times while I was reading. I can't even remember crying this much for a book. I literally cried a liter of tears. Thank you so very much Jessica for writing this book and the entire trilogy. I look forward to reading more of your books in the future.

I wished this trilogy was just a stand-a-lone. This one had all the makings of one. I liked how it ended and we finally get answers and closure. The writing flows so it's a quick read. Recommended for romance fans!

Oh My God. Can this series get any better!? Any more emotional, Heart breaking, tearful and romantic? Yes! The last book in the The Hollow series The Hidden is a perfect ending for an amazing series.

Caspian and Abby are back and more in Love that ever. Things are changing and looking worse for wear and through out the novel I was on the edge of my seat praying that everything would be okay.

This novel was definantly the best outta the whole three. Just because things we waited for through out th

I came across a book that was Twilight but worse: a girl had a dead boyfriend, and was caught in a love triangle between a dangerous, hot mysterious guy who was dead, and an emotionally available boy who wasn't. Twilight, with stupider stakes. And I thought "My God, they're still making this crap. I can't believe a book with so stupid a premise would ever get published."
And then I found this book. I didn't realize it was third in a trilogy until I got home from the library, but I thought I'd giv

What just happened in the end? Change the course of nature? Kristin coming back? Maybe it was destiny, maybe whatever happened due to the interference caused by Vincent, the ass wasn’t supposed to happen, but, and there is a big BUT, do revenants really have the power to just change the course of time? Huh? Do they?
I’m happy for Abbey and Caspian. Believe me, I am. Yet I am disappointed. The ending wasn’t just unexpected; it has left me frowning in the end. I’m in denial. Sorta. The epilogue was

This review is also posted on my blog, In The Good Books.

The Hidden is the final book in The Hollow trilogy, a series that I've had mixed feelings about but wanted to reach the end of.

The trilogy is basically about Abbey's relationship with Caspian, a ghost. The Hollow was about Abbey meeting Caspian and realising that he's a ghost. The Haunted was about Abbey trying to stay away from the ghost she loves because he's a scary ghost but ultimately failing. I happen to be an optimist, so I thought

What on Earth? I'm not sure where to start, but I promised some friends that I would rant...So...Here I go...

1) OK. About halfway through the first book, I knew the series was slipping. I had hopes that the second book would revive the first, but it did not. As soon as I got to page twenty of the third book, I figured out the ending. There wasn't much of a surprise.

I ended up skimming most of the book. It was very day-to-day repetitve. Rather blah. Things that coul

The thing I'm glad about this series? That it's over, and I finally know what's going on.

The whole time I was reading it, I kept thinking how overwritten it was. Abbey is so freakin' dramatic and emotionally over-the-top to the point of hysterical. I understand when she's in a scary situation, but I'm talking about when she's just sitting, having what would be a calm discussion with Caspian. And the romance was so cheesy. I don't know of a better way to describe it, but what I think Verday was t

I have to say that this story has to be one of the most captivating stories I have read till now. I was crying the whole time there were a lot of sad moments. Abigail and Kristen's friendship was admirable and very rare, I wish I had a best friend like Abigail it was one of the reasons I loved this story so much how loyal Abigail was to Kristen even after her death and how much she loved her to trade her life so that Kristen could live it was really beautiful.

This book was absolutely AMAZING!!!! I was so engrossed in it that I finished it in one day. The Hidden picks up exactly where The Haunted left off. And boy, what a roller coaster ride this book took me on. There were so many twists and turns that I didn't see coming. I was so shocked about the ending. I didn't see that coming either. It was one of those happy, yet sad endings. I cried like a baby. But like Abbey said, she lost but also gained.

Abbey accepted her destiny in this book. She realize

I have this one on my Kindle Fire and the other two are normal paperbacks. This trilogy is astonishing and wonderful. In the first one, your heart melts when you meet Caspian. And it soon brakes when you read his secret. You have sympathy for Abbey, losing her bestfriend. You relate to her life and her thoughts and she becomes so tangible and real almost. In the second book, when everyone thinks Abbey's gone crazy, even Abbey, your heart is with her. As the same for her aunt Marjorie, because sh ...more

Wow!! What a perfect ending to an amazing trilogy, I couldn't have asked for anything more. Great book, I could not put it down. I am having a hard time thinking of a review without giving anything away, I will do my best to give it justice but to also not let anything at all slip.

This is the best book in the trilogy. Everything is wrapped up. She really leaves you feeling so satisfied with the ending you can't help but smile. Jessica Verday gave me such an amazing ending that I would never have

this one is getting lowers stars for a couple reasons- the ending, why did it have to end that way? i mean it was a fiction story, why not find a way for caspian to come back to life? At least when abbey gives up her life Kristen is allowed to come back to life, that time goes backwards so that she never died.

There is sex in this book , though it is not descriptive is happens and is not just alluded to, they spend the whole day in bed and making cookies, ok... whatever. I am not a fan of premari

I have to say that this series is probably one of the most disliked series I have ever read.

The storyline? It was GOOD. The characters were GOOD. I liked both of these but these 3 books are so full of mundane everyday life things that I wanted to put this book down and never pick it back up but I refuse to abandon a story. So I read it till the end. Which to me seemed fairly rushed and just ended the tale really quickly after an extremely slow build up of the storyline.

This was such a good conclusion to the series I couldn't get my nose out of the book - I just had to keep reading to see what would happen to Abbie and Caspian by the end of the story.

I very much enjoyed all three books and this was a fitting conclusion. The characters were all interesting, with a touch of the Sleep Hollow legend about them, and the storyline was well told and didn't leave any loose ends.

I am glad I found these books, by chance as it were, and was able to get transported by th

If you think The Hollow and The Haunted are amazing, you have to read The Hidden.
I am completely speechless right now, I'm in shock... The storyline had a different ending than the one I expected T_T...
I loved this one as well, I had no idea how the story was going, it kept me reading until the end.
I had to cry! I definitely didn't expect all of that!! XS
I'll miss this trilogy and I wish the best for Jessica Verday <3

“Abbey: Did you speak to me in a different language? When I was in the hospital?

Caspian: Something to keep the nightmares at bay. To let you know I was there. Tu sei una mia stella. It means 'You're a star. My star.”
“I promise you forever," I vowed to him, staring into his green eyes. "Whatever that is. Whatever I can give you. You have all of it. All of me."

"I promise you forever," he replied. "Whatever that is. Whatever I can give you. You have all of it. All of me.”
