Movie Lake

Who knew it could be so hard to run a kingdom?

(Now ask me how much paint I have on my kitchen floor. LOL)

What is Hidden

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."

Author Bio
Lauren Skidmore grew up in Kansas, with stints in Ohio and New York, and currently lives in Utah. She attended Brigham Young University where she earned a BA in English Teaching with an emphasis in Teaching English as a Second Language and Japanese. She then spent a year in Japan teaching and travelling. She hasn’t made it to Europe yet, but it’s on the list and has been to 30 states in the U.S. so far. When she’s not exploring new places, you can probably find her on the internet with fifteen windows open and looking at just one more thing before actually getting something done.


I really enjoyed reading this book. The setting is beautifully developed, the character's engaging and the plot suspenseful. I'll be looking for other books from Lauren. Very nice.

A lone Naga, betrayed by his family and left for dead, has bonded with a Great Red dragon and is out for revenge. Using his Naga powers, he sets out to conquer the world and reclaim Stonefountain.
With Dharanidhar unable to fly, Kanvar leaves him behind and sails to Varna to stop the rogue Naga.
