What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
I’ve been hunted my whole life…
My name’s Mei Walker, and everyone wants me dead. Well, maybe not everyone, but some days it feels like that. Worst thing is, no one will tell me why. I’m not even sure my protectors actually know why.
The Earthbound—the secretive organization hunting me—has spies everywhere. I’ve been in hiding ever since I can remember, and I’ve never felt completely safe. We move regularly from place to place, and I can never be sure if the next person I meet will be the one who betrays me.
To discover the secret behind their relentless pursuit, I have to make it to my twentieth birthday—that’s when supernaturals come into their full power. It’s not long now, but the Earthbound are stepping up their game. It’s going to be fifty-fifty whether I make it.
Truth is, I know I’m not special. The Earthbound have made a mistake. If I can stay safe until my birthday, I can prove them wrong.
How hard could it be?
Note from the Author
Hidden Dragon features a kick-butt heroine, a centuries-old mystery and paranormal adventure.
Thoughts on Hidden Dragon
A fast moving and action packed urban fantasy that jumps from moment to moment, barely slowing down to breathe or let the heroine consider her situation. As passengers to Mei’s adventure, we witness the highs and lows that smack her, including the gut wrenching realization that trust is far too fragile in this world.
While not perfect, this is an interesting and entertaining read.
Life doesn’t just stop because you want it to. (2%)
- Intriguing concept.
- Plot moves at a quick clip.
- I like the FMC… I think. Hard to tell. Very little introspection.
- Her dad? Ugh. Just ugh. Not the main villain, but definitely a villain of the heart.
- Sometimes TOO fast.
