Angry at his failure to exact vengeance on the prince, mask maker Joch flees Venesia to find his lost love. When a red-cloaked assassin promises answers, he has little choice but to trust her-though he may be walking into a trap. Unravel the deception in this dazzling story of second chances that will keep you guessing to the last page.
Very intriguing story and a real page turner! I was immediately drawn into this world. Although I have not read What is Hidden, the author did a great job of explaining the importance of masks in the Venesia region, and what happened with Joch and the prince in the first book. I thought it was very cool to have the bad guy be the focus of the story. I know he was villainous, but I felt sorry for him at times, and I could see a change in him developing. Kit was instantly likable. She had a presence that commanded attention and I loved her spunk and smarts. The ending I saw coming, but the very last pages were a surprise and I am excited for what happens next.
4 out of 5 stars. This is a book two, but I never felt lost (LOL). I plan on reading book one as soon as I can.
