Molly Brooks has faced every foe thrown at her: vengeful gods, hateful spirits, plotting demons, and everything in between.

She has been betrayed. Lied to. Tortured. Possessed.

It all leads up to this.

Two Titans, formerly imprisoned by Molly and her family, now walk the mortal realm.

And the angry being Nether, now freed from her prison, longs for revenge against those who d

This is it! This is my book of the year! I've looked forward to this book with much excitement and also sadness as this is the last book in the Hidden series. I am much reassured however that this will not be the last book in this amazing world created by the very talented Colleen Vanderlinden.

All 4 previous books have led up to this very point. Molly has made the journey from rescuing lost girls (and being one herself), discovering Nain and his team of those fight against evil, learning about t

I'm sad it's over, but this was so dang good.

Though I don't think for a second that Molly and her crazy family of immortals are finished with their adventures, I am truly and wholly happy with how this book and series has ended. As I've come to expect from Colleen's hidden series,the action never stopped and we finally got the answers that we (well. At least I...) needed. I am both happy for how the Brennan situation has concluded, and still a little saddened for the poor guy. I hope to possibly hear something about him finding happiness i ...more

I need to reread the Hidden series.

I have no words for this. It felt like I was reading a movie, as in the words gobbled me up and into the book I fell. What a story. I cannot recommend this series highly enough.

Liked it!

I just wish I could've read the other books before this one!Liked the God's concept. Interesting how you have them living among the humans

Great series even if it was heart-breaking at times.

I want to start by saying I loved the series and really looked forward to reading this final book. As always I loved the characters, they were solid and what was so wonderful is none of them were without flaws they were neither all good or all bad.
That being said, this book was my least favor from the series. I can't exactly pin point exactly why though. Nothing was "bad" I just felt when I finished the book that there were a lot of filler areas that either weren't necessary or could have been e

3,4,5 and 6: Broken - Home - Strife - and Nether, all by Colleen Vanderlinden

"Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in."

That's not a quote from the series I'm about to review, it's from The Godfather. Still it's apt for these books. I maintain my opinion that I posted about the first book in the series, Lost Girl: it's alright trash reading, but not good writing. Unfortunately it only gets worse from the first book.

Take the setting, for example. The story takes place in Detroit. Picking

I knew it had to end eventually, but, well, Damn.

I really adore these characters and all their back stories, but I could have gone for another, or five more.... thankfully a new series is branching off, so hopefully I won't be saying goodbye just yet.

So about this book: sigh. I've missed all these smart ass immortals and was ecstatic to welcome them back into my life. There are a few new players, again, but everything is "resolved" one way or another, with plenty of anger, fighting, and tears.
Wow. okay so I read through this series (so far) so fast that I can't even separate them. This last book had me crying like crazy. The only reason it's not a five star book for me is because I feel as a whole this series has some holes in it. However, it's very compelling, is filled with all kinds of emotions and relationships and I sort of love it. Every now and then I read a series that has a heroine who is so bad ass to the point that you'd think a being who is un-killable and unstoppable wou ...more

Ok, so this book was bittersweet for me. I love the series, but sad it's coming to an end. I laughed, cried, (mostly cried) and cheered for Molly. Of course, Molly gets to kick ass and take names. Colleen has wrapped up the storyline perfectly. Molly makes peace with everyone and herself, and ends up getting what she truly wants! I wasn't disappointed at all. I feel it leaves a lot of possibility for spin offs!

final installment didn't disappoint.I really enjoyed this series. loved Molly's character and as a big fan of Greek mythology the gods in it were a happy extra for me. If you like a really good plot lots of intrigue and characters then you will love it. Don't for one minute think its a happy ever after story as it has you thinking its going one way one minute only to take a massive twist then next. Brilliant read.

What a great wrap up to this series! The team grows, heartache occurs, and Molly gains a new title. I was sad to see this character complete her task but her happily ever after is definitely worth it. Who knows, maybe we will get a new series that will recount Molly's adventures with her new station.

This was an awesome conclusion to a great series. Molly is taking charge once again, with some help from her friends. We get everything we wanted and brennan isn't the snake we all thought! There is a sad part but I think it works well.

Phenomenal read

A sad but also happy ending to Molly's story. I laughed and raged and cried with the characters. To me that makes for the best kind of story when you feel along with the characters!

Very enjoyable and a solid conclusion to the series. A great protagonist, who learns from her mistakes. Great revision of Greek myth. Were it not for the relentless heterosexism, I would have given the book 5 stars.

Loved this whole series, at times Molly/Mollis was a little annoying. I would like to have seen a ménage relationship between Molly, Nain and Bren. Each book was action packed and a look forward to the spinoff novellas
Excellent end for the series. Enough threads closed off to satisfy, yet a few left dangling so we can hope to see these characters in the off-shoot series. Enjoyed all five books of the series, and I'm happy to have seen steady improvement in the edit issues from book 1.

Good reading

I found this book both kept my interest and was entertaining. I find it enjoyable when most stories are tied up neatly in the end but not so neatly that it doesn't leave room for more...

Absolutely loved this series! This book is not what i expected when i was waiting for it to come out so... I enjoyed it even more! Cannot wait for E's story in the next installation in hidden universe.

I love all these books! They make want to laugh and cry, but it is funny way to look at the Gods and Demi-God's.

Decent ending to the series as a whole, some hard-hitting things covered, in all honesty. Still a bit irritated at the slights in editing, but otherwise, worth the read.
