Hidden: A Crossroads Tale by Lori Saltis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a great novella and it explain a bit of the background of some characters in the crossroads series.
I was curious about why Roy and Cat were not together before the Folly since they know each other for a long time. And How George and Mike as twins never got along to the point of what we discovered in the end of Folly. And I was curious about the whole possible connection between the ying pearl dissapearance and the wisdom pearl too.

Just Wow!

I honestly don't know how to begin explaining how amazing this sequel was.
Let me try, first this book begins like 2 years after the first one so a lot changes in that time like Lennon getting to stay with his aunt in Seattle and training for the challenges of when he turns 18 and Penny has created he own online business selling clothes and accessories and her uncle challenged and won Kingfisher's place in the nest, so now it's safe for her family to be around the nest, excepts that her uncle expects her to marry like the tradition between strowlers woman to marry young.

Even with so many new happening in their lives, Penny and Lennon can't seem to forget about each other despite that being what everyone around them keep saying is for the best.

I loved how their relationship was the same and at same time wasn't, even though they had not be around each other for 2 years. Their relationship seemed to have…
