“I had a lot of fun reading this and found it had a good mix of likable and capable heroine, interesting new world, man candy and story line”
~ Under the Covers
Trying out a brand new series is always a little bit of a risk, especially if you haven’t read the author before and especially if it is Urban Fantasy. UF has the potential to be fabulously rich and imaginative and gives an author the chance to break down the world and build it with a brand new set of rules, which is all part of the reason why it is my favourite genre. Of course, you could say this is true about most genres, but I have always viewed UF as having the most potential, as it isn’t burdened by having to have a HEA by the end of 350 pages.
Which, brings me to Veiled Magic I decided to give it a try, I was jonesing for something new, so what better way to start than new author (to me) and new series. I am pleased to say that this isn’t a decision that I regret, I had a lot of fun reading this and found it had a good mix of likable and capable heroine, interesting new world, man candy and story line. I admit, it was shy of achieving a full five stars mainly because although it was all really well put together, it also wasn’t anything original or new.
However, this was a solid UF read, fast paced enough to be exciting whilst feeding you knowledge about the new world that Blake has wrapped around familiar reality. So far, I haven’t seen any details of the next book in the series, but I will definitely be keeping an eye out, as well as having a look at the back list. This was a great book I am pleased to see I have discovered a new author’s book to devour and a new series.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
