Review #76: Concealed in the Shadows- Gabrielle Arrowsmith

Title: Concealed in the Shadows
Author: Gabrielle Arrowsmith
Pages: 276
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
THIS BOOK WAS AWESOME! It had that dystopian feel to it and it had action and adventure. It was filled with mystery and secrets, HUGE secrets. There was a minuscule amount of romance which I hope blosoms in the next book. The emotions were very powerful, I was tearing up a few times. Concealed in the Shadows is right up there with The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. 
The characters were amazing! Sydney was an exceptional main character. She fought for hat she believed in and she is so loyal. She is the best sister that Evvie could have asked for. She is so mature for her age, putting others before herself. Sydney has embraced the bad and tried to turn it good. She had a fought life and has made the best of it. She is a hero. Evvie is an intelligent and carefree young girl. She has an innocence about her that drew me in. She also has had a rough life but has dealt with what life throws her way. Crewe is a mysterious character, but he too has persevered through a lot and has made a better lif for himself. I can't wait to find out more about him as well as the other charcters. 
When I started this book I couldn't have dreamed of how great it would be and how it would capture me heart. I fell in love with everything about this book and all of its characters. I would recommend this book to everyone. I wish I had the second book in my hand NOW!!! I will be going through withdrawals waiting for it. PLEASE PUBLISH BOOK 2 NOW!!!!
