5.0 out of 5 stars Sequel is even better than prequel! July 1 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
WARNING: Once you get past the halfway point, this book is hard to put down. I stayed up until 3:00 a.m. this morning to finish it. We already liked Alissa, Strell, and Useless from the prequel, FIRST TRUTH; but it is just a build-up to the sequel.
It is always a pleasant surprise when a sequel is better than its prequel. It doesn't happen very often. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scintillating sequel May 2 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dawn Cook follows up her strong "First Truth" with a solid sequel, which picks up most of the threads from the first but leaves plenty of space for further adventures. The sequel syndrome hasn't hit "Hidden Truth," and fans of Cook's first book won't be disappointed.
The evil Keeper Bailic has the First Truth book, but he can't open it. Believing that the piper Strell is the person who can, he tries to teach Strell magic -- not knowing that Alissa is really the blossoming Keeper. While Bailic frustrates himself with Strell, Alissa is learning magic from the raku-Master Talo-Toecan (also known as "Useless"), except that she seems to be far ahead of where she should be -- with more powers than she should have. And there's a friend of Useless's named Lodesh, who is charming, weird, interested in Alissa, and totally mysterious.
Alissa has to perform the magical tasks for Strell, so that he seems to be gaining skill -- at the same time, she learns that she may never get to be with him. Soon Bailic's plans become very, very clear -- he wants to raise an army of the dead, from the city of Ese' Nawoer, which is filled with thousands of guilt-wracked ghosts. But to do that, he has to use the First Truth. And in order to stop him, Alissa will have to learn about what she can do -- and what she might become.
Dawn Cook's fantasies avoid most of the fantasy cliches by not trying to avoid them. She has a small, well-developed cast, a simple cultural backdrop, interesting magic, and a very interesting cast. The villain is given an actual reason to do what he does, and the heroes have to be patient and think.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...I am in the process of reading "Hidden Truth" April 19 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am in the process of reading "Hidden Truth" and love it. This book makes it possible for me to on the journey with Strell and Alissa as they both learn about magic and their true feelings for one another. I feel the pain and the all of the other emotions that they are experiencing as they try to hide their secrets from Bailic. Bailic is so evil I find myself cursing him when he is so mean to Strell and Alissa. This would make a good movie. I hope the story continues.......

5.0 out of 5 stars MORE than worth your time and money. March 24 2003
By Detra Fitch TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Even though the fallen Keeper Bailic had the book titled "First Truth" he could not open it. It was warded well and only the person it "claimed" could open it for the knowledge within. Bailic believed Strell to be the latent Keeper and blackmailed Strell to learn magic from him. Once the musician knew enough magic and opened the book, Strell and Alissa would be expendable.
Secretly Alissa was under the tutelage of the last surviving Master. She had no idea how special she was and the Master feared that he could not bring her magical abilities to full maturity alone. If he failed though, she would die.
Near the Hold was the abandoned city of Ese'Nawoer where thousands of guilty souls waited to serve the one who would waken the city. If Bailic had his way, he would claim those souls and order them to spread madness among the lands, causing the farmers and the plainsmen to go to war.
***** Author Dawn Cook pleases her readers again with this novel, the sequel to "FIRST TRUTH". I actually found myself holding my breath during a couple of tense moments as I read. The novel is even better than the first, which I did not even believe possible. I am VERY PROUD to tell everyone about this wonderful author and can hardly wait for her next release!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Feb. 27 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It is Wonderful. I have been reading "good vs. evil" books all my life and ive never come across one like Hidden Truth. The way Dawn expresses the evil charecters as the stupid ones is remarkable. Its rich with just enough detail and a spectacular fantasy.
