A viral Kindle Through the Veil 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.
