Summary

Beneath the mountain, the king's reign of tyranny is absolute; the one troll with the capacity to challenge him is imprisoned for treason. Cecile has escaped the darkness of Trollus, but she learns all too quickly that she is not beyond the reach of the king's power. Or his manipulation.

Recovered from her injuries, she now lives with her mother in Trianon and graces the opera stage every night. By day she searches for the witch who has eluded the trolls for 500 years. Whether she succeeds or fails, the costs to those she cares about will be high. To find Anushka, she must delve into magic that is both dark and deadly. The witch is a clever creature, and Cecile might not just be the hunter. She might also be the hunted.

Slightly frustrating story line

Felt frustrated at the characters taking so long to work out who the witch was. it felt like being at the pantomime yelling 'shes behind you!'

Wonderful

A great second book. Some second books in the series can become slow paced but not this one! So much interesting stuff happened and I loved learning about all the characters more :)

Predictable but good

Called the plot twist pretty early but the actors were marvellous! worth a listen but maybe not a repeat.

fantastic!

I have swiftly fallen in love with this series but now dread listeners to the final installation as it will be the last!
I did however guess who Anushka was right at the very beginning of the very first book, call it writers hunch!

Loved it, can't wait for next book.

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

Yes, Its just what they would like romance, danger and magic. Very well written and very well read.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked all the Characters, it's told from the two main characters points of view from the way they feel to the way they see the world around them.

Have you listened to any of Erin Moon and Eric Michael Summerer ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, I loved Stolen Song Bird the first in the series, they read that the same way, very expressive you believe they are the characters.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Beauty And The Beast have nothing on this love affair!

Any additional comments?

If you like magic and romance you will love this.

Very Young Adult Fantasy. could not finish it.

I read the first book and was interested but it was frustrating. The plot was thin, and predictable with all the staple fantasy character types. I was curious enough with the plot to start the second book but could not finish it. Definitely not a YA book that holds up for adults, After the first several chapters, I could not go on with the second book.

The characters are not really likable, they seem to walk into every situation with their eyes shut to every danger, and so much of the story is musings in the first person by the two main characters, usually berating themselves for doing something wrong. The premise was interesting and I really wanted to like the book, but could not. Several other reviewers stated they got frustrated when they had seen the solution or action and the protagonist could not. I agree and don't feel that wanting to yell at your main character is a good reaction to a book.

I really did not enjoy the readers either, I found their voices distracting and the French accents on the proper names but nowhere else just made me cringe. It would have gone better with a gentle French accent overall or just Anglicizing the French words just a little so that they did not seem harsh and out of place in the middle of a narrative in English. Several times the female narrator pronounced the same name La Voisine in different ways. It was distracting. Maybe one of those books that read better than listen. I would recommend for a younger crowd save for some very violent scenes.

Not as good as the last.

This book bothered me a great deal with the many contrived reasoning why they couldn’t be happy with Tristan getting out. Example, not wanting to take off the manacles. Stupid they were killing him and thus her and if he was dead everything for the trolls is lost. However, he didn’t want her to take them off?? I knew the witch was her mother and how she was prolonging her life early on in the book and it was annoying watching the characters fumbling around trying to figure it out. There were several other illogical things that bothered me during this book so I am not giving it as high of stars as the others.

Great Second Book

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

For a second book it didn't seem as un needed as some others that I have read. I'll be listening again and again

What other book might you compare Hidden Huntress to and why?

Switched by Amanda Hocking

Which scene was your favorite?

When the plot is finally laid out.

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

No, but I'm not very emotional

Any additional comments?

Very interesting listen. Kept me wondering about what was about to happen. I did guess correctly on who the villain would end up being but I couldn't figure out the entire plot.

Love this story but.....

I wanted to SCREAM at the characters for not figuring out the "plot twist" when I did. Seriously frustrating when you figure out what's going on half way thru the book and everyone else is clueless. With all that being said... I still do enjoy this story. Like with a lot of second books this one was a bit slow and felt like a really big build up for book 3. I will definitely be reading that when it comes out:)

Plot twist

The only thing I have to complain about this book is when you realize the plot twist before the characters and it literally makes me go mad since its in front of their face the whole time. I like being able to follow along the the characters as they discover it or make my own assumptions, not being a head half way through the book. That just makes it feel like the book is being dragged.

Wonderful new series

I am always so glad to find a new author and this one is great. The two narrators are wonderful and really added to the enjoyment of the book. I am just sad I have to wait so long for the concluding book.
