Publisher's Summary

An enemy kingdom. A powerful prince. And an Academy for mages.

To stay alive, Verene will have to uncover her hidden power.

Verene is a disappointment to her entire kingdom — the first royal ever born without power, despite her mother being the most powerful mage in history. So when she's sent to the Academy in neighboring Kallorway to forge ties with her people's traditional enemies, she's determined to succeed and prove she can still be of value to her kingdom. 

Prince Darius of Kallorway is the strongest mage in his family — and the only reason his weak father is still clinging to his throne. Starting at the Academy at the same time as Verene, the crown prince is cold and distant and shows no desire to connect with her. Instead, he seems suspicious of both her presence and her claimed lack of power.

Surrounded by unfamiliar politics and long-held enemies, Verene discovers that some at the Academy want her gone by whatever means necessary. As the threats grow ever more sinister, she starts to question all of her assumptions. The hardened prince might just be her best hope of survival and — even more shockingly — he might be right about her power. But as danger grows in the shadows, Verene isn't the only one in danger. If she wants to save both her old kingdom and the new one she's starting to love, she must uncover her hidden powers and take her true place among the mages.

If you enjoy strong heroines, fantasy worlds, adventure, intrigue, and clean romance, then try the Hidden Mage series now.

Copy

I love Melanie’s books. I was absolutely taken in by The Spoken Mage and couldn’t wait to read more of Melanie’s books. I started this series and was immediately disappointed. I felt like I was reading the Spoken Mage again. All the same plot, story line and troubles that happened to the mom, started happening to the daughter. When the daughter feel in love with the same type character, I did a huge eye roll. I finished the series because I had hope that it would be a little different in the end. I’m pleased to say that it did change a little bit. It would probably be a great series if you have not read the Spoken Mage first. But all the similarities ruined it for me.

Refreshing twist on a familiar topic

From the beginning, the author twisted the predictable storyline and took it in a refreshing and imaginative direction. At first, I didn't think I was going to be able to embrace the new premise, but the descriptions and narration brought a whole new element to magic... Well done, author and narrator! Arsario brought the book to life.
