I enjoyed the first book and couldn t wait for this one A Little Red Riding Hood spin off Yes This story started out with a lot of suspense Joch, a mask maker, feels like a failure and sets out to find his one true love who is lost to him He s escaping and things are quite tense for awhile He is joined by a mysterious woman and he is almost forced to trust her Joch is different than I thought and I enjoyed getting to know him better and in a way that almost made me feel sorry for him The I enjoyed the first book and couldn t wait for this one A Little Red Riding Hood spin off Yes This story started out with a lot of suspense Joch, a mask maker, feels like a failure and sets out to find his one true love who is lost to him He s escaping and things are quite tense for awhile He is joined by a mysterious woman and he is almost forced to trust her Joch is different than I thought and I enjoyed getting to know him better and in a way that almost made me feel sorry for him There is definitelythan meets the eye with him and I loved that, because I think that s true with most people His red hooded companion is intriguing I couldn t figure out what she was about and was kept guessing where the story was going to go Just as I thought I had things figured out, a major twist happened and I was taken by surprise I love being surprised by an ending Content I would consider it clean I received a copy in exchange for an honest review Wonderfully written and very exciting read Loved it The main character in this book is the villain from the previous book And while this book tries to explain away his crimes by telling us that he was lied to and manipulated be an even worse person, I don t think that s a good enough reason excuse for his crimes This made it difficult for me to care about connect to him as much as you re supposed to, which made it harder for me to feel invested in the book in general. What Is Lost What Is Hidden 2 by Lauren Skid What Is Lost What Is Hidden 2 by Lauren Skid picks up where book one left off, with Joch running from the Prince and looking for answers about Tatiana and the answers he finds he may not like.The book was a wonderful retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and a joy to read.4.4 Stars Not as good as the first book, but it was wonderfully written and the story was very entertaining I loved the world building for this series, how it is a mixture of Asian and European cultures The stories, while related to fairy tales, felt unique due to the world building and characters My only issue with this book was how Joch wanted to stop being the Chameleon, but he seemed unrepentant of his actions He justified that since the Wolf told him to do all those bad things, that he wasn t res Not as good as the first book, but it was wonderfully written and the story was very entertaining I loved the world building for this series, how it is a mixture of Asian and European cultures The stories, while related to fairy tales, felt unique due to the world building and characters My only issue with this book was how Joch wanted to stop being the Chameleon, but he seemed unrepentant of his actions He justified that since the Wolf told him to do all those bad things, that he wasn t responsible for all the bad things he had done I don t know if the author made him this way or didn t want to go through these issues yet since there will be another book , but I really wanted to smack Joch around for his attitude this book was a pain to read I really liked the book before this one so I was excited to read the next two in the series I didn t love this one It just left me sad, angry or frustrated I wanted at least something good to happen but it didn t seem like it ever did There was interesting and intriguing mystery in it which kept me reading and kept me hopeful and interested It s a short, easy quick read and for those that like a slightly darker book you may like this one I did appreciate knowing why the Chameleon was the w I really liked the book before this one so I was excited to read the next two in the series I didn t love this one It just left me sad, angry or frustrated I wanted at least something good to happen but it didn t seem like it ever did There was interesting and intriguing mystery in it which kept me reading and kept me hopeful and interested It s a short, easy quick read and for those that like a slightly darker book you may like this one I did appreciate knowing why the Chameleon was the way he was so this was a good book for that I just wanted a bithappiness So this book was just okay in my opinion Angry at his failure to exact vengeance on the prince, mask maker Joch flees Venesia to find his lost love When a red cloaked assassin promises answers, he has little choice but to trust her though he may be walking into a trap Unravel the deception in this dazzling story of second chances that will keep you guessing to the last page I enjoyed this one muchthan the first Having a fun Japanese touch to is was impressive I love the legend of the Kitsune and there are many different forms and ways they are this way With a spin off of Little Red Riding hood it was very enjoyable Moved just as fast or even faster than the first book Has a better climax and a fantastic ending I hope to see those characters again Good read. This book felt slow to me Nothing really happened until the end Add to that the fact that I never really felt any sympathy for the main character who was the villain in the first book and I honestly didn t enjoy it as much as the first one.
