Why am I not surprised that I enjoyed this read by Stacey Rourke!?! Hmmm... Maybe because I love how she thinks "outside the box" and creates with her own creative and historical twists to it. Ha! I think that's it! Well, it is no different with this latest story on vampires. Right!?! Vampires!?! Anyways, this isn't any ordinary vampire story. That's right! Vincenza (the main character) is no ordinary vampire. So... Where do I being without spoiling anything?
So... I absolutely love Stacey's writing. The way she creates these complex characters with unique and individual personalities. And, her world building...!!! Stacey can thrust readers into the worlds she creates in just a few chapters, and then, readers are hooked! Well, I know I was...haha!!!
Anyways, Veiled is absolutely a different take on vampires. Stacey took very real issues and gave it a paranormal twist to it. And, we all know how politics can be a touchy issue... Haha! Moreover, the story takes Vincenza's tragedy and made it into a driving force to uncover secrets and the truth behind all the vampire political propaganda. This first book in this new series introduces readers to this world where vampires exists and the dark and dangerous line that humans walk either glamorizing them or exposing them for what they really are.
The flow and pace of the story takes readers to the past and present of Vincenza's journey of becoming an unstoppable weapon. Although moving back and forth from past and present can be confusing, Stacey cleverly writes it in a way that isn't too difficult... That is if you are paying attention. Sometimes, I had to go back and forth with the chapters to get my bearing on the story. Yup! Veiled is an engrossing read in which once can't just breeze through it. This is a thought-provoking and a gripping read. Of course, although Stacey incorporates some history, this is definitely not a retelling in any way. I do enjoy reading tidbits of history thrown in.
All in all, Veiled is no ordinary vampire story. It is anything but ordinary! There are complexities to the characters and settings that make this a captivating read with a splash of history and realism. This is an incredibly thrilling introduction to Stacey's world of vampires...haha!!! Can't wait til the next book! So... Stacey, when can we expect the next book?!?!
So I am glad to see this author stepping out into the genre of vampires, though I have to say with this book I was a bit confused with some scenes. I sat here for a while before doing my review so see how I can write it without giving anything away. I won't be able to do that because when I start dropping names or certain scenes if gives things away. So for me being confused during some parts I had to drop my rating down to a 4, though I will say I will read book two when it comes out because the book ended on a cliff hanger that has me asking questions. One thing I will say is to pay attention to the chapter titles, that way you won't get as confused as I did.
As far as characters go I liked the main character and her humor I expect at least one or two characters to have a witty personality about them and the author did not fail at that.
I really enjoyed how the author put in the history of Vlad the Impaler because I have only heard his name once before so as soon as I finished the book I went to get some more information on him.
We are introduced to Vincenza who when you see what happens to her you just know that she is going to have to get revenge. Yet it isn't the revenge you would think, it seems that her parents kind of prepared for something to happen and with the help of Micah Vincenza will get her revenge among other things. You can just tell there is more to the story than just revenge. As we go back and forth between the past and the present we also get flashbacks so just make sure you pay attention.
When we get towards the end I wasn't expecting it to go the way it did and it does have me wanting to read the next book.
Vampires exist. They live in your neighborhood, own businesses, work in your building. Are you comfortable living among them? Or are you terrified of the image in which they are usually portrayed? Most people land on one side or the other. Not Vinx, she has the amazing opportunity to live on both sides of that fence and through her we get that chance as well. Vinx is a human but she has the "powers" of a vampire. She can mingle with both sides without raising an eyebrow. But will she use her powers for good or evil?
One side says vampires are monsters. Blood thirsty freaks with no self control. The other side says they are just like you. There is no reason to be afraid. Vamps just want what anyone else has in this great country, rights that we take for granted everyday. I started out with a strong dislike of vamps at the beginning of this book. I wanted vengeance on behalf of Vinx. Ok, maybe there is a piece of me that still does. But after seeing both sides, my dislike has softened a bit. Making me feel bad for the villain is no small feat but Stacey Rourke has managed to do it. I can't wait to get more of the story and see what happens next.
