The Hidden by Jessica Verday

About the front:
What first caught my eye with this cover was the color. I am a HUGE **HUGE** fan of raspberry. Not only is the background my favorite color, but so is the ring in the middle. Now the title and the ring tell me nothing except I can interpret a couple things. For example, is the ring hidden? Is the ring supposed to tie someone to something. What is it about the ring that’s so important it gets center stage? I’ll be waiting, to find that out.

I’m also wondering at the dark ‘stuff’ under the ring. It looks like leaves a little to me. But are they?

I guess overall, the cover tells me nothing, but I really think it’s pretty.

Now let’s look at what the back says:

A love that knows no bounds.

Abbey knows that Caspian is her destiny. Theirs is a bond that transcends even death. But as Abbey finally learns the full truth about the dark fate that links her to Caspian and ties them both to the town of Sleepy Hollow, she suddenly has some very hard choices to make. Caspian may be the love of her life, but is that love worth dying for?

Beautifully spun, emotionally gripping, and irresistibly romantic, The Hidden will leave you breathless.

Does it match? Front to Back without the in between?
So first, I gotta say, I hate (HATE with a passion) when blurbs interject opinion about how great a book is. Let me the reader determine that by reading it. Put reviews with the reviews. Keep the blurb to the blurb.

Now that being said, I have no idea how the cover ties in with the blurb. So, I’m interested because of the romantic plot. I love when two people are meant for each other — truly meant for each other — that it crosses death makes it even more intriguing.

But how is this different than every other paranormal romance out there? I can’t tell yet what’s so unique about this one and again, while the cover is pretty? It doesn’t give me any sense either.

Where I’d read it
Not sure. I’m kinda torn on this one. I was totally in love with the cover, but now I’m not sure on the story. May not read this one after all. Not sure.
