{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} The Concealed - By Sarah Kleck


Author: Sarah Kleck  S===
Release Date: 11/1/2015 
Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N 
Can you be happy when what you desire most means your doom?” Evelyn Lakewood, an orphan, is crushed after the death of her beloved sister Zara. But the nineteen-year old enrolls in Psychology at Oxford in honor of Zara. There, Evelyn first becomes friends with vivacious Sally and seemingly charming Felix. But the encounter with Jared Calmburry, whose incredibly blue eyes immediately captivate her, fundamentally changes her life. She is instantly drawn to this mysterious stranger around whom unusual things happen and who simply disappears every time Evelyn tries to confront him about his puzzling behavior. After finding a mysterious book with a unique symbol on its leather cover in the university library, her curiosity is perked. She doesn’t know what to make of it but Jared’s best friend Colin Sullivan encourages her with cryptic hints to continue her search for evidence. When she discovers the same medieval symbol is worn by hostile professor Karen Mayflower and engraved on another faculty member’s seal ring, she realizes that an ancient secret surrounds Jared.


I wanted to love this book SO badly! I'm not sure if it was the translation that still has me on that fine line....but there's something there that's holding me back!

Evelyn had my heart, she was broken, emotionally bleeding and trying to find something to allow her to move on from such a tragedy. Coming into a new school enabled her to feel like she was able to start over, not have that cloud looming over her, or be the girl who's sister died.  But of course that can't come easy, what good novel would allow that?? 

The instant that she lays eyes on Jared her world is turned upside down, between chemistry and mystery this entire book was a quick paced read. Each character played a key important roll, like Morgana for example. She is like Snape and Regina George had a daughter....evil in pretty clothing! She boarders on that fine line of being so mean you almost like's

Overall I plan on continuing this series and seeing where Evelyn goes not only on her journey, but as a character.
