LoveReading View on The Hidden Gift

A sequel to the hugely popular Million Dollar Gift. A search for a missing child and the dangers it uncovers takes Ross Bentley to the darkest place he's ever been. He must face danger and great grief and learn to harness his powers to face down his greatest nemesis yet. This is non-stop adrenalin-pumping action and not to be missed.


A Piece of Passion by Ian’s editor Helen:    This year I've been editing The Hidden Gift, the follow up to Million Dollar Gift and the second book about the adventures of Ross Bentley by YA author Ian Somers. I LOVE his books! They're about Ross, a teenager with supernatural powers and a smart mouth who's learning about his gift - and about the worldwide network of 'gifted' people, both benign and dangerous, that he encounters. They're real page turners; Ian has created a richly-imagined world where people with special powers walk among us. The books have great characters, fast-paced plots, romance, adventure and they pack an emotional punch. I really enjoy working with Ian and learning about his characters, their powers and the twists and turns of the plots. He's created such a convincing alternative world and such compelling characters that I can't wait to find out what happens to them next. The Hidden Gift is out in March and I can’t wait for people to read it!

The Hidden Gift Synopsis

After the terrifying events at the Atkinsons' house, it might seem like Ross Bentley would be glad of some peace and quiet. But when that involves being holed up in a remote Scottish farmhouse, Ross finds he's never felt so alone. Ross is cut off from family and friends, separated from the girl he loves, in hiding, miles from civilisation - and he's really miserable. He has to train, study and practise his powers if he ever has a hope of joining the Guild of the gifted, learning to use his gifts to protect others. But suddenly the monotony is broken - a gifted child has been kidnapped. Hunter, Ross' trainer, needs to track her down, and he has no choice but to take Ross with him. The search for the missing child, and the dangers it uncovers, take Ross to the darkest place he's ever been. He must face danger and great grief and learn to harness his powers to face down his greatest nemesis yet...
