Hidden (Hidden Series Book One)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Sixteen-year-old Leah Grant has given up on being normal. She'd settle for stopping the voices in her head, intrusive visions of the future, and better odds of making it to her seventeenth birthday.
That's the thing about pretending to be human in a world where magic used to exist - at any moment, her cover could be blown and she'll be burned to death like the rest of the witches.
Everything changes when she loses control of her powers and flees the orphanage she grew up in. She desperately wants to be invisible but finds her face plastered on every news channel as humans panic over the possible resurgence of her kind. And now the hunters won't give up until they find her.
Making friends for the first time in her life and falling in love with one of them drives her to discover why she is unlike any being she's ever met - human or otherwise. The dangerous powers inside of her that would repel Nathan, her new, handsome reason for living, are priceless to some. The locked up forever kind of priceless. And to others, they are too dangerous to allow her to live.
Let's hope she can stay hidden.

It would involve the creepy trance face she hated so much. “Back to your seats. Settle down,” Sister Margret said, slamming the door behind her. “Act like civilized humans.” They didn’t settle down. Sienna and her flock were still in hysterics about their prank. The others were sitting on desks, tinkering with cell phones. I

It faded suddenly as the heartache flared again. “If that pillow isn’t working, I have two arms over here.” He held them open, and I just stared at him, in complete shock. He wanted to hold me, and I’d never been held. Not like that, not more than a hug. “You wouldn’t mind?” I asked. He pulled me with no effort at all and cradled me in his lap.

They’ll get really freaked out if you just appear out of nowhere.” “Baby, we’ve been over this, and you’ve made me practice this enough that there’s no way I’ll blackout again. I’ll see you in a few hours. Call the school if you need me.” After a long kiss, he waved and disappeared. Sophia and I followed her into their bedroom. She flipped on the TV and crawled in bed. “How old is she,” I asked. “Almost nineteen.” Lydia flipped over in
performing for someone too? She couldn’t be. She’d openly practiced witchcraft, evoking the devil with a smile. Not a hint of fear in her eyes. “The second floor has more bedrooms,” she said as we climbed the stairs. She didn’t take me to see them. We kept moving up the last flight. Sophia was old and on the heavier side, but had no trouble getting up to the third floor. I lingered in front of a painting of a peaceful looking woman, dressed only in a sheet. She rested on a wood floor, covered
