Product Description

Product Description

Where the fairy tale ends, destiny begins.

Elizabeth Tanner is no Tinkerbell, and her life is no fairy tale. Broke and drowning in student loans, the one thing she wants more than anything is a scholarship from the Trinity Foundation. But after the ancient Irish text she's studying turns out to be more than just a book, she becomes their prisoner instead. And when Trinity reveals Elizabeth is half-Fae, she finds herself at the center of a plot to save the magical races of Ireland from a brutal civil war.

As Commander of Trinity's elite warriors, Finn O'Connell isn't used to having his authority challenged. He doesn't know whether to punish or protect the infuriating young woman in his custody. When he discovers the Dark Fae want to use Elizabeth's abilities to control the source of all power in the universe, he'll risk everything to help her.

At the mercy of Trinity and enslaved to the Dark Fae, Elizabeth finds herself alone on the wrong side of an Irish myth thousands of years in the making. Refusing to be a pawn in their game, Elizabeth has to fight her way back to the man she loves, but to do so, she must wage her own war against the magic that binds her.

Wow when I started this I didn't think I'd like it as much as I did

Upon reading the synopsis, I was hooked right away. A Fae adventure with romance that's NA, so that's a bonus since it's a rarity. And also from a new author, so it was definitely worth checking out. It didn't take me long AT ALL to be hooked (a chapter or so in). I wouldn't have taken so long to read if not for work preventing me from reading.

This book literally has it all! Fantasy, an awesome romance, a strong heroine and a swoony hero, great secondary characters, and multiple villains that just keep the twists coming! Through the Veil is a fun and deep read. The book is longer than the average NA book, giving it lots of room to get comfortable with the book and allow the enjoyment to just go on further.

I highly look forward to the next book. I'm disappointed there's no word on it yet but I'm stalking the author in all ways possible now so I can track that right away!

HASH(0xa8caeaa4) out of 5 stars Romantic Fantasy Brilliance! Feb. 23 2016
By Lisa - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I judge books by two things: how quickly they grab me and suck me into the story, and whether I finish the book, close it, and start it again immediately. I'm thrilled to say that Through The Veil had me from page one. Twice.

Elizabeth is a smart and strong character whose passion for Irish literature drags her unexpected heritage into the light. With one of the hottest men in fiction in the person of Fianna warrior Finn *sigh* she finds herself embroiled in a war between the magical races of the Trinity.

The author has a gift for language and storytelling that completely enchanted me. The average reader might have trouble with some of the Irish language, but I completely geeked out over it (my Irish language lessons came in handy, although all I can remember is how to count to ten and cuss). The love story doesn't feel forced. I'm a sucker for lust at first sight, but their inevitable admission that they can't live without each other is completely fulfilling. Parts of this (no spoilers) moved me to tears. That's not something that happens with every book, even those I love.

The supporting characters are fascinating individuals who become as human as Elizabeth and Finn. I loved the idea of the Trinity being everywhere there is a large Irish population. The author's knowledge of Irish history only enhances the rest of the story. If there was something that I felt wasn't "enough", it's just that I wanted more of certain parts, especially in the last half.

This is the author's first novel, and I think she is a force to be reckoned with. I am going to wait impatiently for the second book in this series.

HASH(0xa8caecf0) out of 5 stars The kind of magic that makes you want to believe March 2 2016
By Michelle Hazen - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My favorite kind of magical books to read are the type that feel utterly real. This author's effortless grasp of the Gaelic language and Irish mythology make for seamless worldbuilding. The very down-to-earth voice of her modern heroine makes the magic a lot easier to buy into as well.

I adored the descriptions of Ireland in this book--usually when you get someone who can paint a scene with beautiful words, they go overboard but in this book, I got just the right amount of visuals to get my fingers leaping to highlight the phrasing, and my lungs sighing with longing for just a line or two more. The pacing is great, with stakes that just keep getting higher and higher until the heroine lands in a situation so brutal that my eyes started bulging and I was forced to revise my entire opinion of the book to Game-of-Thrones-style no holds barred.

From that point on, I knew ANYTHING could happen and my eyes were glued to the page (with the exception of some sympathetic wincing for the characters because OUCH). The end was not at all what I was expecting, and without being particularly spoilery, I have to say I was vastly impressed with how nicely this book applies itself as a metaphor for breaking out of an abusive relationship, becoming empowered, and starting to heal.

This is a new fantasy author with worldbuilding talent to spare, and the grapevine tells me she's got an Irish historical forthcoming in the future that I'm VERY excited about.

HASH(0xa8caecb4) out of 5 stars Outstanding mix of fantasy and romance Feb. 22 2016
By Mike Reads Books - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Through the Veil is one of the best things I've read in a long time. I got a chance to read an advanced copy, and I'm glad I did.

When you read a fantasy romance, often you get one or the other. You get a great fantasy story with a token love interest, or maybe you get an awesome love story in a half developed world. Through the Veil is both. It would be a great fantasy even without the romantic elements, and the love story of Elizabeth and Finn would sparkle no matter where you set it.

But I have to start with the thing that sets this book above its peers: the characters. Elizabeth is both strong and flawed, but always endearing. I found myself rooting for her from the first few pages. When you throw Finn in the mix...while he's not my favorite male lead of all time (hey...I don't fall for hot Irish dudes...what can I say?) he's absolutely perfect as a compliment to Elizabeth. Two individual characters who get better when you put them together. The chemistry jumps off the page.

The pace of the story is unbelievable. It grabbed me from the first chapter and never let go. Just when you think things couldn't get any more intense, the author turns it up another notch. The plot is full of well thought out twists and turns, and through it all walks Elizabeth. She's an unlikely heroine surrounded by a cast of richly developed secondary characters and a phenomenal world, both real and the imagined that lies Through the Veil.

The story itself revolves around a secret society hidden within the modern day world. A dark, dangerous place of fae and magic, steeped in Irish lore. Elizabeth gets dragged into that world against her will, then has to fight to get out, or establish her place there in a web of alliances and double dealings.

The one negative for me in the book was the sex. While it doesn't overwhelm the plot at all (I think there were 3 or 4 scenes, maybe) I prefer my reads a little tamer. If you like your books 'PG' this probably isn't going to be your thing.

I can't recommend this book enough.

HASH(0xa8e74330) out of 5 stars Not a typical PNR book! Feb. 22 2016
By Kelly Smith Reviews - Published on
Format: Paperback
I really love paranormal romance that has fairies and magic as opposed to the "typical" types of characters we've been getting lately. Sometimes it is easy to forget that paranormal also includes the mystical as well as the creepy. Through The Veil's storyline is occasionally naughty (perhaps too naughty for a new adult book), sometimes sweet, often very violent, but always entertaining.
The main character is a woman whose plot starts out strong and gets stronger. She's a fighter, and avoids most common "female" characteristics romantic heroines usually encompass. Her upbringing was not easy, yet she came out and became a hero in her own right.
The romance between her and Finn is...unusual. It borders on Stockholm Syndrome, as Elizabeth becomes enamored with her captor. It was the only part of the book I couldn't really get behind. Especially since Elizabeth is such a strong characters it didn't make much sense for her to act how she did with Finn.
However, what I liked best about the book was the accurate depiction of violence and torture. You don't normally get scenes like thiose in PNR, and while I am sure many readers would be put off by them, I really enjoyed them. PNR can sometimes forget that it is supposed to be anything other than romantic, but Ms. Halverson remembers quite well that PNR is so much more than love.
A good book. Things could be improved upon, plot-wise, but it is definitely one I would recommend.

HASH(0xa8e744e0) out of 5 stars Don't miss this one! Feb. 25 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Since I love a good paranormal romance novel, I was thrilled to get an advanced copy of this gem! I have to honestly say I could not put it down! The characters are incredibly well-developed and believable, the plot twists are gripping and well thought out, and the chemistry and love story between Elizabeth and Finn is sizzling!!

To like a book I also have to like the protagonist, and I loved Elizabeth with her wit, sass, and guts but also her endearing vulnerability that made me root for her from the first few pages. When the noble and gorgeous Finn arrived, tempers and passions flared and I was in it for the long haul! All of the other characters were wonderfully developed as well, and had me cheering them on or hoping for their demise!

Through the Veil is a well-written page turner, folks, with a mystical world of faeries, dark magic, villains, heroes, and some mighty creepy mythical monsters! Loved it, and I can’t wait for book two!
