Review of “The Hidden Sun” by Rachel Hoyt

Rachel Hoyt has posted a review for The Hidden Sun on her blog cuts-of-paper. What did she think of the book? Well, she gave it 4.5 stars (out of 5) so, I’m very pleased she enjoyed it.

“There are so many things I loved about the book. First, the plot. Oh, the plot the plot the plot. I wanted to die. There were lots of twists and turns, and things just kept happening that I didn’t expect.


And the characters! Our villain, Abrecan, is just purely and insanely evil and power hungry. You will love to hate him. Eliana and Rinan are utterly adorable, but I especially loved Rayne. A girl can’t help but swoon over such a guy. He stands up for the innocent and endangered, helps old women, and can fight to boot. Governor Nash was a fun character to read, always with a quip flouncing authority.


The Hidden Sun is a classic tale of good and evil. There is no magic afoot or dragons smoldering, just good ole human nature. This is the first book in a trilogy, with the second novel, The Waxing Moon, coming out next year.


The Hidden Sun is a hidden revelation; a chivalric novel well worth your time.”
