REVIEW: Unhidden by Dina M. Given

*Thanks to Netgalley for an ARC in exchange for a fair review*

Unhidden is Book One in the Gatekeeper Chronicles.  Protagonist Emma is former miltary turned mercenary.  Ten years prior, she suffered memory loss after a car accident. With no known family, she's honed herself into a tough as nails badass who relishes being in control. When the supernatural world unveils itself to her, all hell breaks loose as Emma soon realizes she must have had a rather colorful past.  With all manner of scary creatures on the prowl, two mages (one with whom she has a deadly attraction) and some pretty powerful magic artifacts, Emma discovers more about her past and what role she'll play when two worlds collide.

What I liked...
  • That cover!
  • Interesting urban fantasy premise
  • Intriguing characters
  • Kick-butt female protagonist
  • A plethora of delicious, hot guys as eye candy
What I didn't love...
  • There's a bit too many gaps in world building
  • Some lapses in pacing
  • I wanted more dimension from the secondary characters (as a whole)
Overall, this shows good promise for subsequent books and I'm curious enough to continue to book 2, Unraveled.  

Final rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
