If you like masks or find them fascinating, this retelling of Cinderella--What is Hidden by Lauren Skidmore--may appeal to you. The concept is fascinating which is always refreshing with a Cinderella retelling. I just became aware of Skidmore this month when I learned of her third fairy tale inspired novel which I posted about last week, The Fairest Poison. This was her first published fairy tale novel and was published in 2014.
In a land of masquerades and mystery, Evie is a mask maker in Venesia, where masks represent rank and identity. When a cryptic bandit strips away Evie's mask and destroys her home, she goes into hiding at the palace to find both a new identity and revenge. Fantasy lovers will be caught up by the mystique, romance, and magic of What Is Hidden.
