From School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—After the experience with the mystic underwater creature in the previous installment, Thunderstone, Jeni is determined to uncover the nature of her new abilities. Haunted by nightmares, she is desperate for normalcy; but everything changes when her boyfriend Ice goes missing, and she is forced to face new entities and a curse that could endanger her life. This novel blends elements of paranormal and urban fantasy. The unique world Pietron has created will take readers on an epic adventure with Irish and Celtic legends that enhance investment in the story. The relatable narrator will engage teens in this quick and easy read, and the twist-filled plot will keep them at the edge of their seats. The novel sets up a great turn of events for the next volume. Character development feels one-dimensional at times, especially since this is a second installment, but it won't detract from the story. The tale is plot-driven and has roller-coaster moments that will keep fans entertained. VERDICT A great addition to urban fantasy shelves, purchase where Holly Black's "Modern Faerie Tales" books are popular.—Ericka Greer, Ouachita Parish Public Library, Monroe, LA
About the Author
After years in the corporate world, Barbara Pietron found herself with a second chance to decide what she wanted to be when she grew up. Her lifetime love of books and the written word returned one answer: writer.
Pietron’s Book One of the Legacy in Legend series, Thunderstone (Scribe Publishing Company, 2013), was a finalist for Indiefab’s 2013 Young Adult Book of the Year by Foreword Reviews, and in 2012 Thunderstone was a quarter-finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. As such, Barbara won a full manuscript review from Publishers Weekly, which called Thunderstone “…well-written and entertaining,” adding that “… Jeni makes for a likeable protagonist that readers will identify with.”
Pietron also wrote a stand-alone novel, Soulshifter (Scribe Publishing Company, 2015), and a prequel to the Legacy in Legend series, Heart of Ice (e-book only, Scribe Publishing Company, 2014). She has been a contributing writer for AAA Living and Family Fun. Find out more at www.barbarapietron.com.

I received a free copy of Veiled existence, and got to read before it came out, here are my thoughts. I really enjoyed Veiled existence! The mystery and supernatural elements are very intriguing and different than I've ever seen before. Though I thought the best part of this book was the world building. You can tell how much research went into developing and accurately portraying real caves and landmarks. Plus the spiritual and real-world elements merge perfectly! A great read just like its predecessors.
If you have not read the first book of the sequel, Thunderstone, I recommend that book too.
I'm looking forward to your next book. Thank you.
