Book # in Series

The first novel in a USA Today bestselling series from Megg Jensen! 

 Control the dragons. Rule the realm.  

The mystery enshrouding Hutton’s Bridge is as impenetrable as the fog that descended at its borders eighty years ago. Each year, three villagers enter the mist searching for answers. No one ever returns. 

Then a dragon falls from the sky to the town square, dead—the first glimpse of an outside world that has become nothing more than a fairy tale to Hutton’s Bridge. Except to Tressa. 

Tressa grew up with Granna’s stories of the days before the fog fell. When Granna dies, leaving Tressa without any family, Tressa ventures into the fog herself, vowing to unravel the foul magic holding Hutton’s Bridge captive. 

What she discovers beyond the fog endangers the lives of everyone she loves.

Hidden is a gem that introduces a very good epic fantasy series

Hidden by Megg Jensen started as a slow read for me but it built up to an exciting story with an epic storyline.  The story begins in a small village named Hutton's Bridge that had been secluded from the rest of the world in a magically fog.  Each year several townspeople went out into the fog never to return.

Life is getting more desperate after the town's leader dies of old age and a deadly plague hits.  Three young adult friends decide to risk the fog in search of a cure to the plague.  Before they leave a dragon drops dead right in the middle of town.  The townspeople had never seen a dragon.  The friends escape from deadly monsters only to find themselves captured by an evil warrior queen.  This is where the book begins to get very interesting.  How can three people with very little skills survive in either this new place or back in the fog against the monsters?

Tressa decides to stay in the new city by working as a barmaid and training to be a member of the evil queen's royal guard which will allow her to get close enough to kill her.  

Tressa's love escapes back through the fog to Hutton's Bridge proving to the townspeople that they can survive.  But can they defeat the monsters in the fog and the evil queen?

I really felt like this was a difficult book to rate.  I have been mostly writing my reviews from audiobooks I listen to during my long daily commute and this was the only book that I read on and off for over a month.  I think the book could have moved more quickly at the beginning but once the townspeople moved out of the fog and into the new town the book became much more interesting and was exciting and rewarding to read by the end.  I give it five out of five stars and recommend it to epic fantasy readers.
