The Hidden Twin by Adi Rule #Review


Add it to Goodreads
For eighteen years a girl with no name, a Redwing, has been hidden away in a small attic room within a city of hissing pipes and curving temples perched on the side of the great volcano, Mol, while her sister, Jey-identical except for her eyes-has lived her life in public as an only child. Their father had hoped the hidden girl would one day grow up to be a normal human girl and not the wicked creature mythology has promised, so he secretly spared her life as an infant.

But when she switches places with her sister, striking up a flirtation with the son of the Empress while working in the royal gardens and gets attacks by two suspicious priests on her journey home, she is forced to call forth fire to protect herself, unleashing her previously dormant powers and letting her secret out. She soon catches the attention of a cult with a thousand year old grudge as well as a group of underground rebels, both seeking her for their own gain. But when her sister goes missing and the Redwing uncovers a great plot to awaken Mol and bring fiery destruction upon them all, she is forced to embrace her powers.

In Adi Rule's new novel, The Hidden Twin, the girl with no name, must choose a name and a path for herself, drawing a line between myth and history to prove herself more than a monster if she is to save both her sister and her home.

So I found out that this was a reprint. In the past few years I haven't had the best record with these. And well it seems that this is another one that just didn't work for me.  Although this book was pretty good in story I wish there would have been more done for the world building. I felt like I had been thrust into a world that was already there and that this would have been the second book.  I also felt that in the first few chapters there was a lot of info dumping that just took away from the story. 

So for me this one felt like it was missing to much and was just not well executed.
