“I have always existed, not just me but all of us, the un-embodied spirits who wait to live.”
Tess is an unborn spirit, who is about to embark on a much awaited journey into mortality to a brand new planet called Earth. She is chosen by the Eternals for an important mission, and is put through rigorous training, which exposes her to some of her darkest fears and insecurities.
These experiences, however, enhance her gift as a discerner of thoughts and reader of auras—thus helping her become one of Heaven’s most powerful angels. But even angels falter, and deep inside her, a gnawing fear is growing.
Will she meet her soul mate in life? Will their love be strong enough to overcome the forgetting effects of the Veil? And, is she prepared to take on the responsibility of keeping the most dangerous renegade and leader of the Fallen Angels at bay during mortality?
This is a very special book. Not because it is considered a christian book, but because it has so much more. I have to say that unfortunately, my fellow romance readers, The Veil can’t be classified as a romance book, but a different approach to a fantasy novel based on love.
I liked this books for reasons I can’t fully explain or describe. What I know is that it has an incredible depth and message of love. While I understand what the concept is trying to express, some technical issues made it difficult to follow the story.
I found pacing problems and I couldn’t relate to most of the characters. I thought the story would go one way but it ended up taking a path that I didn’t expect, maybe not in a good manner. I related to what they were going through but not their personality or actions. I don’t believe that most readers will have a hard time connecting with them though. Another problem were some over described scenarios, that didn’t have to be. This confused me at some points and made me lose interest to keep reading.
What I can assure you is that The Veil is a very touching and unique book. It will make you cry, smile, FEEL, THINK, and leave you curious for what’s coming next…
