    (113)

    Orphaned and left to fend for herself in the slums of Averalaan, Jewel Markess - Jay to her friends - meets an unlikely savior in Rath, a man who prowls the ruins of the undercity in search of artifacts and treasure. Nursing Jay back to health is an unusual act for a man who renounced his own family long ago, and the situation becomes stranger still when Jay begins to form a den of other rescued children in Rath’s home. But worse perils lurk beneath the slums....

    Richard says: "An unexpected gem."

    Story
    Would you listen to The Hidden City again? Why?

    A story like this is worth listening to again. The cast of characters is petty big and the mystery they weave is revealed slowly with lots of twists and turns.


    What other book might you compare The Hidden City to and why?

    I found this book similar to Kristen Britain's Green Rider. An excellent story with believable characters that you care very much about.


    What does Eva Wilhelm bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The characters are richly presented. Through her narration I developed an emotional attachment to all of them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    She reveals the difficult and challenging lives that these young children have endured. The author takes her characters through a number of "gut wrenching" situations that leave you emotionally drained.
