This series is just being dragged on and on...

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Zoey isn't evolving as a person or a high priestess. She isn't growing into the high priestess role that she has been blessed with by Nyx. Her indecisiveness, lack of surety and overall lack of self awareness make her the weakest character in the book and she should be the most compelling part of the book.

Would you ever listen to anything by P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast again?

I don't know.

Have you listened to any of Caitlin Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I have all the House of Night books on audio book and I love all the ones she has done. She has brought to life these characters and I commend her!

Did Hidden inspire you to do anything?

I'm looking for a new series, that's all it has inspired me to do... move on.

Any additional comments?

The authors are drawing out this series and they have lost a loyal reader/listener.

I'm very disappointed in the way this series has been drawn out and milked for every last ounce of story P. C. Cast and Kristen Cast can get out of it. If you're going to keep a series going please keep it interesting; make us want to listen to it over and over again. Make your audience sit at the edge of their seats waiting for every word, every action with baited breath!

Getting tired, but still entertaining.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If you have read the rest of the series, yes, I would read this one. It continues the story with the gang. There is nothing that stands out as super interesting though, and had I not read the rest, this book is pretty boring and can't be read as a stand alone.

Would you ever listen to anything by P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast again?

Yes, but it's time to take the House of Night into a new, interesting direction, or wrap it up.

Did Caitlin Davies do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

The narrator does a fine job, but if this were a movie, she wouldn't be winning any Oscars.

Do you think Hidden needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

There needs to be a final book to tie up the loose ends and finish the series.

my second time listening

I absolutely love this series, and hope someday they make it into a movie. These may seem like a great book for teens, but I'm 30 and cannot get enough.

Also, the narration of this book is amazing. the voice changes which each character, and it's like a movie playing in my head.

love love love this, and I recommend to all!

Best Audiobook Performance

I listen to about 3-4 books a week and this has been the best performance from any of the books I have listened to to date. I recommend the story and this audio book to all who love to listen to books in the car like I do.

Best series ever!

This is one of the best series I've ever had the pleasure of reading. The narrator uses different voices and does a great job of it. There is love, danger, and lots of drama which makes for a great story.

I can't believe I bought this one

The last book I wasn't that impressed with, but still l bought this one hoping that it would take a turn and get interesting! Didn't happen!! Stark was not a warrior at all and I dont even know what to say about this book really! It was just ridiculous and I can't believe I waited a year to read this! I have read all her H.O.N. books and I have enjoyed reading most of them, but they just keep getting worse. I don't even want to know how it ends anymore, and I'm pretty sure I can guess the ending anyway! To sum it all up this book is a Let Down!!

Great Book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It is a good book that has lots of strife, coming of age problems such as friends growing apart, faith in friends, and of coarse Nix!

What other book might you compare Hidden to and why?

I am not sure. Hidden is pretty unique in my opinion.

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

She gives personality to the characters with the inflections of her voice that really show just how much of a not-nice person Aphrodite is, yet you DO get a feeling that there is a nice person just underneath the surface that is just waiting to get out. I hope that a confrontation with her nasty parents will somehow bring about this flowering of her personality and show just how special she truely is.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. Of coarse I am a bus driver so I got lots of time to listen to it in once setting...lol.

Any additional comments?

The thing I really liked about this book that is slightly different than the other House of Night books is that it really felt like a whole book. When I have read some of the others I get to the end and I am like WAIT!! That is it?? They are going to leave it THERE!!! This book has a good resolution, and still leaves you expecting something more, but yet leaves you with a satisfaction of things done. I would certainly read it again! :) I am sad that the next installment will not be out til 2013 though:(

Relistening to a great book

i absolutely adore the House of night series so I have been re-listening to them the last few months. Love the stories, love the narrator. These authors are great when writing together!!!

The books just got worse and worse...

Let me start off by saying that Caitlin Davies is amazing and that she was the only good thing about this entire series. Despite The House Of Night series having way too many generic and stereotypical characters, Ms. Davies made it very easy to tell who was who even when the story itself wasn't even sure. However a good narrator is no replacement for lack of a story plot.
While reading this series (starting with Marked) I thought the plot would be fairly decent and would play into the story well despite the generic Cliché of absolute good vs absolute evil with no real backstory on either or why "good" was good and why "evil" was evil. I kinda liked the Mary Sue named "Zoey" in the beginning and was kinda sad when her generic best friend had more personality than the cookie cutout of a main character. Like most generic "Chosen Ones" story line, the main character some how got the hang of the entire 'Magick' deal while being freshly thrusted into her new role and somehow became better than those who've spent years/decades learning the ways of Natural Magick.
My biggest disappointment would have to be the whole "vampire" thing. THIS BOOK IS NOT ABOUT VAMPIRES AT ALL. Instead this uses more of the modern Wiccan religion and just added some super powers to make it flashy. There is zero traces of any of these characters being vampires! The closest we get is when the main character needs "feeding" aka drinking blood. But this has nothing to do with the story either, Mary Sue drinking blood is just another excuse to cause relationship problems between Mary Sue and which every guy is closest to her at the time.
The real thing that killed this story for me is the simple fact that this story isn't about Vampires, absolute Good VS absolute Evil, Teens vs Adults, Chosen Ones, or even about the ever-so-lame and ever-so-popular "female power" - INSTEAD this book is nothing more than 2,968 pages dedicated to nothing more than a love triangle between Mary Sue and EVERY SINGLE GUY she comes across!! Literally, every guy this main character comes across falls deeply in love with her except for a half human, half bid boy who is left to her "undead" best friend.
With all that said, this is one of the worst stories I have ever read. Reading this series almost broke up a book club and friendships because it was so bad.

Really good series

The House of Night series is really really good, I have now read the complete series and wish they would bring out another book. Really worth a read if your into the vampire - immortal type of book, but this wasn't too heavy more aimed at young adults, but I'm far from a young adult and I really enjoyed it. Highly recommend
