The first review for A Hidden Magic has gone up -- Lydia at Rainbow Reviews gave it 4.5 stars. :D She said:
All his life Rory has been different, hearing and seeing things no one else can. After he is attacked by Goblins, Rory is introduced to a whole new world, one he’s having a hard time accepting.
With this premise you know "A Hidden Magic," the first book in Angela Benedetti’s new series Sentinels, is going to be a fun read. Loaded with just about every fantasy creature under the sun, the author sends the reader on an interesting, action packed, journey.
Other than magic, our heroes Paul and Rory really have very little in common. Yet, the author is able to convey a wealth of chemistry that, once Rory can overcome his confusion about his new reality, and an overbearing but well-meaning mother, will burn up the pages. Although Rory and Paul are the main characters, the secondary characters, Manny, Cal, Aubrey and even Azzy, are just as engaging and help move the story along. There are many small twists and turns in this story that will leave the reader intrigued.
The author has done an excellent job weaving a story that is sure to hold the reader’s attention until the last page. I was glad to see on the publisher’s site that this was the first book in a series and can’t wait to see what will happen next.
This is a wonderful review; I'm so glad Lydia enjoyed the book. [beam] This kind of commentary makes me want to get right back to work on the next novel in the series.

PS -- Fictionwise has A Hidden Magic for 15% off right now, $5.09 instead of $5.99. I guess it's not up on the iBookstore yet? Anyway, I don't know how long the discount will last, but I'm guessing not long.
