Publisher's Summary

Never look back. Alex Verus is a diviner who can see probable futures - a talent that's gotten him and his friends out of many a tough scrape. But what happens when someone doesn't want Alex's help?

Alex's friend, the life mage Anne, distanced herself from him when she found out about his past as a Dark apprentice. Now she's in serious trouble but wants nothing to do with him. Alex has to start wondering if Anne's problem is really with him - or if there's a secret she's trying to hide. On top of that, rumours are swirling around London that Alex's former master may be back in town. Alex has no idea what his agenda may be or who it involves....

Series starts off as good and ends up great.

I've done a couple of reviews for books in this series recently and have said nearly everything there is to say without giving away spoilers. The plot was great, the narration keeps improving and I was pulled in from start to finish. Despite the fact that the main hero is male, there are several really strong and varied females in the cast, which makes this an equally good listen regardless if you are male or female. This review is really just to confirm that it keeps getting better and there isn't a weak or filler book in it so far. I ended up listening to the books back to back, despite the fact that I've other purchases I should be listening to first. The next book is due in August and I will definitely be pre-ordering this if it come to Audible UK.

You do need to listen in order as while each book has it's own story there are new characters introduced and an overarching plot. Since Audible now has the lot but hasn't series linked them yet, this is: Fated, Cursed, Taken, Chosen and Hidden.

When hints become facts

What did you like most about Hidden?

Quite a few facts about characters that have been only hinted at in previous novels get an explanation. And the explanations are as riveting as the action scenes!

What did you like best about this story?

Although the story is globally very well thought out, it's the small details that flesh it out that I like the most.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

A certain allusion to the Babylon 5 universe... Funny as hell!

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

As always, the story builds up in a way that enables the reader to empathize more and more with the characters.

Any additional comments?

The whole series has become 'mature'. The characters are well rounded and very human (i.e. flawed), except maybe for a certain reddish animal.

like where it's going - but starting to get samey

love the story and the characters but there are some annoyances creeping in. Repeat explanations of Alex's processes and the politics; some obvious reveals and repeating names when the pronoun would do really jar when listening to an audio book.

Narration is good - but accents are poor and getting poorer :(

like where it's going - but feels like a campaign in an RPG....

A good read

Another good story with the same disfunctional family/group of friends. Fast paced, if a little cheesy.

jacka knows how to make you care about every character new and old, and also makes you wonder what is in store for each of them

Another great part to the series

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and already stated the next one.
A bit imaginative, or is it.
Either way you get absorbed and enjoy the story.
Very good narration.

magic and conflict

Love this series. the narrator is good and makes the characters come alive. however he sounds older than the character of Virus is supposed to be.

I will listen to the whole series .

Excellent series

I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this series of books. I am especially looking forward to the next one on pre-release already. If you have enjoyed such books as rivers of London then you will most likely enjoy these as well. Though I did need to look up the order of the books on the author's website.

Great series, great book

Would you listen to Hidden again? Why?

Yes - when the next book comes out I'll be tempted to listen from the beginning

What did you like best about this story?

The book opens up to the darker side of Alex and gives more insight to his past and anxieties

Have you listened to any of Gildart Jackson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is another excellent rendition in the series

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

The pace was good and I could have listened all the way through

Great story

Where does Hidden rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was a great book it would be up there in my top 10

What did you like best about this story?

This is mutch darker than the previous books, but it was good to know more about the shadow realm and about Anne and Vari, and there background story, in more detail. Iq just wish that Sonder would get over it, sometimes you have to do the worse to survive

What does Gildart Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He has got much better with each book, and I no longer compare him to James Marsters and the Dresden Files audio books he has really made these books his own

Any additional comments?

If you like the Dresden Files try this the magic is different but the story is good
