The Hidden World: (Imperials #3) by Melinda Snodgrass I have been waiting for this installment form the first book. I wanted to see how Mrs Snodgrass shows the continuing relationship between her heroic characters Tracy and Mercedes. The second book showed the destruction of their relationship, so it’s hard as a fan to see how they could possibly recover. What I found in Hidden World, a heart rending story of two lovers who have to learn to live without each other, when their personal connection is everything they need. They spent the last fifteen years surviving. Tracy, running away changing his name and becoming a han solo like trading rebel smuggler with a lot of the ideals of working with various aliens and finding new connections. Mercedes has learned to rule as her father the Emperor diminishes due to age, all the while she is coping with the flanderious relationships of her consort, Bono. It's a political destabilization both politically and socially because she remained barren. With no direct heir, her stance in the succession is on a tipping point. As usual Mrs. Snodgrass, does not leave this only to be a young love story, she brings reality of politics, and society. She questions the status quo of our modern world in her alternate science fiction story. She brings up the idea of classicism, legality, and subjugation of other “races” or aliens. She questions how our prejudices can cause problems as we expand into the universe. She also shows that humanity will not always be the victor, and our own faults will lead to our own down fall. I will be waiting for the fourth installment of this series. Congratulations Mrs Snodgrass, you have created an addictive series, that will continue to draw the readers to the next story.
