The story develops as Princess Kelsey struggles to adapt to the implants that was forced onto her. I think Kelsey has become my favorite character in the series with Commander Mertz coming in as close second. Kelsey is quick with her mouth, sharp and, after having received the implants, she is truly a “kick ass chick”.
The book is an enjoyable mix between adventure, discovery and action as in kicking the butts of the bad guys. It is fairly fast paced but not too fast. As with the previous book it is perhaps somewhat light reading but I found it to be a quite fun read nonetheless.
Each time Jared & Co think they have a handle on the situation a new surprise pops up around the corner. Sometimes it is a good one and sometimes it is a bad one. In either case it leads to more adventure for our friends. They themselves makes some new interesting friends as well as some new enemies. One thing I like with these books (small spoiler ahead) is that the bad guys generally receive the clobbering they deserve. Maybe not at once in the same book as they are introduced in but sooner or later their judgment day is coming (yes I am lagging behind with the reviews and I am already a few books ahead).
I was about to write that I am looking forward to the next book but that is rather meaningless since I already bought as well as read it.
Terry is now on my short list with authors like Doug Dandridge (Exodus: Empires at War series), Vaughn Heppner, BV Larson, and Ryk Brown. If you like those books, you'll likely like this series.
With Book #2 (sequel to Empire of Bones) we start to get comfortable with the main characters, and become comfortable with the Space Opera genre this series is in. The main characters (Kelsey and Jared) are likable and I want to read more about them. I personally appreciate having characters that are honorable. Thanks.
I'm also thankful that Terry keeps the language in check and keeps adult themes to hinted and indirect. Thank you! This helps me to recommend the great story I'm reading with my family and friends. Nothing ruins wanting to share a good book then having a trashy sex scene. Thanks for not doing that.
I've read books 1-3 and am looking forward to book #4.
By Terry Mixon
Genre: Science Fiction
Veil of Shadows picks up with Commander Jared Mertz and Princess Kelsey Bandar shortly after the first book left off. They did have a victory but they’re dealing with some pretty major consequences to decisions they each made. Kelsey’s impulsiveness has her in a situation she never would have imagined. With new allies and friends, they strive to learn more about the civilization that came before them while dealing with internal strife on the planet of Pentagar.
Terry Mixon has continued the series with his easy-going style that lets you get right into the action with just enough description to let you imagine the scene as you ride along with the characters. I was thrilled to be able to jump right back into the middle of everything with the characters right from the start. Sometimes a sequel has too much of a jump in time from the end of the previous book but this one was just right. I was satisfied that I didn’t feel like I had missed anything.
If you’ve read the first novel, Empire of Bones, I strongly recommend picking up Veil of Shadows. You won’t be disappointed.
A mission to a nearby star system may be just what they need. They control the skies, but until they control the planet, the Rebel Empire can still hurt them. Things come apart when their new enemies make their move. It will be up to Kelsey and Jared to stop them before their new found friends come to an untimely end.
Terry Mixon delivers the next episode in his Empire of Bones series. Jared and Kelsey grow and change in this book as they come to grips with their new reality. The galaxy will need them at their best, because the enemy isn't idle.
