Sequel to STRAYED.
(Novella length)

Our perceptions create our reality, even when they're wrong. Nobody understands this better than Gavin. Nobody.

To most, he is a shadowy agent of chaos. His motives are questionable, his methods bizarre. But his journey is one of both protection and redemption, and his story is yet untold. Until now. The past and present you think you

I went into Concealed very curious about whether or not it would offer more detailed info on Gavin (which it did and we’ll get into that in a minute), but I realized when I finished that it’s also the answer to a common problem with a long series coming to an end.

When you read a lot of long series books, as the final book in a series nears, a lot of readers frantically scramble to re-read the second-to-last book as a refresher. What Concealed offered was a complete recap of all

Concealed is definitely a book that people are going to be torn on. I personally find the book extremely important in this series. It gives us a different look at how things have gone down and why.

Gavin has always been in the shadows, watching. He is the King of the Fey. He has been around to see it all; many things that would destroy the best of us. He is Ruby's guardian and protector since she was born. Gavin finally gets to explain why he made certain decisions and other things came to be.

Caged, by Amber Lynn Natusch is one of my very favorite paranormal series. It takes the standard werewolf plot line, and amps it up to almost unrecognizable. Yes, this is about a werewolf, but one that is different from just about any of them out there-well, that I know about anyway. I do read a lot of werewolf shifter books, and when one of them is really different, that stays with me. I was lucky to find this series when I first started reading paranormal books again a few years ago, and have ...more

This definitely didn't make me like Gavin more. In fact, it did the complete opposite.
All I saw was a creepy voyeur lurking around Ruby's life making bad decisions and not helping her in any way.
Yes he has information, information that he could have given her if he wasn't so caught up in his righteous ideals.
Gavin was the cause of Ruby's abduction.
I hate Gavin. I don't even like his name.
Rant over.
I'm still giving it 3 stars because the writing was good

Paranormal intrigue

Another story set from another point of view. Background information is interesting and necessary but I want to find out what is going on in the real story. However this one is definitely worth reading to get the background.

Gavin's story

This short novella is Gavin's story of how events were seen from his perspective and the things he did to try to keep Ruby safe. I'm still not sure how I feel about him, but I do like him better than before.

Caged series

This has been an exhausting, emotional roller coaster ride. And, I've enjoyed every minute of it. Only one more book to go. Have not been able to put it down.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review from the author.

She is strong.

She is proven.

And I will follow where she leads.

Wow! I have chills all over me! Concealed was simply exquisite. I loved each and every moment, as always, of being sucked into Amber Lynn Natusch's Caged series. I can't get's like a fix I just can't seem to live without!

Gavin has always been a mystery to us.
If you reading this and you haven’t read the any of the Caged Series yet, you should start now. Concealed is book 6.5 in the Caged Series by Amber Lynn Natusch. Amber Lynn Natusch is a great story teller. Her characters are rich in personality. Every character has a unique voice and contributes in a way to the story that enhances it. They are not filler. ALN writing makes you laugh, and cry, even at the same time! The stories flow flawlessly.

The mysterious Gavin speaks! In Concealed, we get to

I have always love the way Amber writes her books, they are always so full of mystery. They always leave you wondering. But this one has many many answers, I think both novellas in the series are key to understand better the context in the other books. This is one in particularly. I wasn't a fan of Gavin, he was so full of secrets and enigmas that make him seem as one of the enemies.
Now that truth has come to light, his secrets are exposed and knowing the side of his story is a must.

Not only does CONCEALED let us learn more about Gavin, but it was a great recap of all the events that have taken place in the Caged Series from a different point of view.

It was nice to finally get an in-depth look at Gavin and learn about his motives and thoughts as the many events of the series passed. He was there in the shadows loving Ruby, keeping her safe and hating Sean before we even knew he existed. He answered a lot of the questions that have been in the back of my mind as well as put

During the whole series I always doubted Gavin. I thought he was a flake. He looked sketchy. Always talking in riddles and never getting to the point. He aggravated Ruby. I didn't get why he was against Sean and Ruby's relationship either.
This novella sheds some light on just how much Gavin loves his niece and at what lengths he will go to to save her life.
They are the only two left of their kind and he would just about do anything to keep her safe.
He realizes through everything that Ruby has

Okay so I absolutely loved this book, I didn't think I cared anything else about Gavin, but boy was I wrong, I can see him in a different light now that I've read his story and why he's done what he's done. I always thought of him as an interesting character but more of a thorn in Ruby's side, now it's much clearer and we find out all the reasons why. Thank you Amber Lynn Natusch for another fantastical (probably not a real word) book!

I have been reading the caged series for a long time now. The hints makes me anticipate the final book. Amber Lynn Bausch did answer some questions in this book that I had wondered from book one. Such as, how can a blind child know how to dance or do art. She hinted at what Scarlett did when she left. The hints were good.

I'm glad this novella was written. It gives us more incite about Gavin that we didn't get in the last book. I think we all viewed him as the enemy because we all want Ruby and Sean together, I do anyway. I didn't like Gavin showing up and putting bad thoughts about Sean in Ruby's head. Very excited to see what happens next.

This novella adds another point of view to the story- Gavin's. If you've already read this far into the series, then you should read this story. It does fill in some gaps and somewhat recaps all that has already gone on. It's a good filler until the next book comes out, which isn't soon enough.

3.5 stars. It was good to get some of Gavin's insights, some answers to previously evaded questions, however I felt like it wasn't entirely necessary (hence it being a novella). Honestly it did nothing for me as far as changing my opinions on him or "the dark eyed one."

Reread this so I can be ready for the last installment of the Caged series, Betrayed. This is an awesome series and definitely recommend this to anyone who loves to read YA paranormal books. Concealed is all about Gavin, who is for Ruby.

This is an excellent book, it is just entirely to short. I know, I know, that's the point of a novella. I'm anxiously awaiting the final book in the series!
