Sometimes, one must accomplish the impossible.

Beneath the mountain, the king's reign of tyranny is absolute; the one troll with the capacity to challenge him is imprisoned for treason. Cecile has escaped the darkness of Trollus, but she learns all too quickly that she is not beyond the reach of the king's power. Or his manipulation.

Recovered from her injuries, she now lives with her mother in Trianon and graces the opera stage every night. But by day she searches for the witch who has eluded the trolls for five hundred years. Whether she succeeds or fails, the costs to those she cares about will be high.

To find Anushka, she must delve into magic that is both dark and deadly. But the witch is a clever creature. And Cecile might not just be the hunter. She might also be the hunted...

Review quote

"Love, adore, heart-to-freaking-pieces. This kind of book is why, why, why people need to look more closely at YA fantasy if they don't already. Let Jensen show you how it's done. Topping Stolen Songbird was always going to be a difficult task, but naturally Jensen manages it. The bar was set and so she vaulted over it, off into the sunset to a fanfare of praise."
- Jet Black Ink

"This is a wonderfully written story, and as the second novel in this series, it perhaps even supersedes the first as it morphs in to entirely new directions."
- Quirkathonic

"I would highly recommend this book to everyone! It's action-packed, full of magic and has great characters. My only regret is that I'll have to wait such a long time for the third book."
- The Fictional Reader

"This was an absolutely fantastic YA fantasy novel. There is a ton of wonderful magic and intrigue in this book. I love the chemistry between Cecile and Tristan and how they are both striving to make the kingdom a better place for all involved. I really enjoyed this book a ton and am very excited to see how the story wraps up in the final book of this series. This series is highly recommended to fans of intrigue heavy fantasy."
- Hidden In Pages

"This book is everything I wanted and more, I can't wait to see how this author will conclude this, so far amazing, trilogy!"
- Zach's YA Reviews

"Hidden Huntress is a solid and well developed story...Ms. Jensen's writing makes it so that the story remains intriguing and unpredictable each step of the way."
- The Blair Book Project

"My heart soars and breaks at the same time just by thinking about this book. This awesome, stunning and wonderfully written book. Hidden Huntress was epic & such an exciting adventure into a world filled by magic so dark and beautiful. It made me smile, it made me grieve, it made my heart pump faster than ever before, and impossible as I thought it was, it made me fall harder and deeper in love with this series."
- The Writer & The Chef

"Hidden Huntress is just as good, if not better, than Stolen Songbird. Let me tell you, this book has no hint of Middle Book Syndrome, which usually plagues trilogies. So much important stuff happens that I couldn't even begin to summarize it, and I'm not going to try. Because Hidden Huntress is too good to spoil!"
- Leeanna.me

"Hidden Huntress does not disappoint! This story is told with a confidence earned through vivid scenery, bright characters, and a theme that holds everything together like steel wire."
- Cowering King

"Hidden Huntress is the sequel to Stolen Songbird, a book I loved and adored and encouraged everyone of my acquaintance to read. I'll have to adopt the same tack with this worthy follow-up, because Danielle L. Jensen's emotional resonance game is strong, strong, strong."

"The book was suspenseful, nerve-racking, drama, mystery, romance, and everything good rolled together and I experienced an onslaught of emotions to the point were I needed to take a break or I wasn't going to be able to deal. I honestly can't wait for the next book. Seriously, I need a copy, a clue, a hint of something right now because after that ending I just don't know how I'm going to survive."
- Musical Bibliolater

- Dark Faerie Tales

There were so many different elements at play that came together to make an excited, riveting, infuriating and suspenseful tale that kept me mesmerized from cover to cover.Danielle did a wonderful job of making sure all of the pieces to this story had a purpose and that they all came together seamlessly in the end. The mystery, danger, suspense, political intrigue, family ties, friendship, treachery, betrayal, power and love. It all was just so good!"

"Hidden Huntress opens up the world, simply put. It felt bigger and more encompassing, upping the ante for all involved. The pull of the story was irresistible, given how so much more now rests on the success of our protagonists.

"A spectacular sequel to one of my all-time favourite books. With dark magic, a cursed kingdom, and a witch who doesn't want to be found, Cecile seems to be in more danger outside of Trollus than she was trapped within the mountain.Her quest had me racing through the story and being back in this world made me so happy. And Tristan is as dreamy as ever. I absolutely adore this series."
