♥Hidden Huntress♥


Sometimes, one must accomplish the impossible.
Beneath the mountain, the king’s reign of tyranny is absolute; the one troll with the capacity to challenge him is imprisoned for treason. Cécile 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. But by day she searches for the witch who has eluded the trolls for five hundred 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. But the witch is a clever creature. And Cécile might not just be the hunter. She might also be the hunted…

    I'm not even mad...I'm just...disappointed.

You can't even begin to imagine how ridiculously excited I was for this to come out. I had stalked this book to no end after I had read the beauty that was Stolen Songbird. I mean, seriously, who could  read that book and not fall for Tristan or be intrigued by these beautiful trolls(yup, they are hot as heck *shrugs*)  or be bewitched by the awesome banter and witty dialogue? So to read Hidden Huntress and barely find anything of what you loved from the first book is quite heartbreaking.
Sadly this reads like millions out there. Second book syndrome overpowers every single detail. Instead of witty and fun dialogue it turns tedious and snore-worthy and instead of an enticing and growing plot, it drags up until the very end leaving us with that recognizable twist and unnecessary cliffhanger. And the worst part it was ridiculously predictable. I personally think the foreshadowing could have used outside help or at least a little editing, it's too telling to the point of spoiler-ish.

Now, I understand that sometimes these books are used to open up for the third and final book but I also believe it doesn't have to freakin suck. It felt like a complete waste of time. I was constantly at battle with myself for I found everything under the sun more entertaining than sitting down and reading this. And we all know the second reading becomes a chore,   something is wrong

. Hurts to say it was Hidden Huntress.
Now with all that said, will I read the finale?
I refuse to live without my bae, Tristan.

But on a serious note, I do believe-cause I'm nothing if not optimistic, you know?- that the best is yet to come. I mean we're in for a hell of a finale and shit is about to go down dude and I am so ready from it.
