THE HIDDEN DEEP is the second book of the Threshold series. Ms. Kinde does not fail. She wrote a very descriptive sequel. You get to know the characters from the first book so much better. I liked this book more so than the first. It has more mystery and suspense in it. I found that I couldn't read the pages fast enough, especially after Prissie discovered she has the gift to see angels, her world was not the same. She makes friends with the angels and learns to be a part of a totally different world. When one of them goes missing, she is warned by some of the angels, but she wants to help and ignores their warning. She is headed for danger.
The enemy lies right in her path. Her human world is becoming a strange place more and more as time passes. Her father seems to have made friends with her rival, Ransom.
The story is full of drama, THE HIDDEN DEEP doesn't lack for anything. It has action, angels and some lessons to be learned. The only thing I found I didn't like was at the end, you want more. You want that third book and you don’t want to wait. But waiting builds the want for more and the wonder of what is going to happen.
I find the author did a marvelous job throughout the book at keeping my attention and kept me wanting more. That’s a sign of a good book. The Broken Window is the next book.
I definitely recommend this book to the young and the young at heart. What could be better than reading about angels? Good work, Ms. Kinde.
I give this book 4 STARS.
Homework, football, apple pies, and ... angels? Harvest time is in full swing when Prissie Pomeroy learns that something terrible happened in her family's orchard---making it hard to focus on school, especially when her best friends are distant and Ransom won't leave her alone. As she meets other angels. Prissie is drawn increasingly deeper into their world and closer to its dangers. A kidnapped apprentice suffers. A chained door bodes ill. A tiny angel makes a big difference. A battle line is drawn. Everything Prissie thought she knew is about to change ... again! 'He was trembling, which frightened Prissie even more than the pitch black. Crouching down, she made herself as small as possible against the tunnel wall. From somewhere in the darkness ahead came a sour note, off-key and unpleasant. She held her breath, listening with all her might. A dull clink was followed by a crunching sound that reminded Prissie uneasily of a barn cat eating a mouse. She cupped her hand around her little passenger and curled more tightly, hiding her face on her knees as her heart sent up a silent plea for help.' -from The Hidden Deep Praise for The Blue Door A fantasy with a wholesome message and down-on-the-farm twist. -Kirkus
