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.
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.Read more ›
Elizabeth is now a pawn in the war between magical races. She's supposed to be very powerful, but she also doesn't know much about the world she's now living in. That's a great disadvantage. Her power can play a crucial role and others want to benefit from it, which means she's being forced into a horrific situation. Will Elizabeth be able to get out of it again? And can her life ever go back to normal now that she has all that new information about her lineage?
Through The Veil is a great story about a student who's half Fae and half human. Working with a magical manuscript is only the beginning of a series of terrible events. Elizabeth is strong and resourceful and she doesn't lose her head in a difficult situations. She's a fabulous and powerful heroine. Finn is a sweet guy, but his hands are tied. He can't be there for Elizabeth all the time and they learn about the consequences of that the hard way. Some of the scenes are awful and dark. There are plenty of creepy and cruel characters who are making life difficult for Elizabeth. The story is an interesting adrenaline rush and I loved reading about the different worlds and their inhabitants.Read more ›
