Enchanting tale of two fae who are re-united in an intriguing story. Even though this is a novella, the characters are well-developed. I was truly entranced by the fantasy world that Lisa Kessler shared. Don't miss this one!

Even thought this book was a fast read, it is nothing short of brilliant. The plot was very original, pace was good, Characters and world both well developed. The twist were what kept me hanging on I NEEDED to find out what was happening. Overall it was a blast to read. I would definitely refer friends, and anyone else to read this book.

I had the privilege of reading Across The Veil and instantly fell in love with it. It was amazing how Lisa Kessler, the author, managed to fit a complete story in just 6000 words. She packed the story full of heat, descriptive words, and polished it off with a well thought-out plot. The pacing in most short stories often feels off or forced in someway. In this little jewel, the pacing of everything came naturally. This book left me without any questions other than, will Lisa write a full story sometime? I hope she does! In Across the Veil, you get to a sneak peak into the movie making business, a deadly feud between brothers, and glimpse at the Fae world. You will also witness the death of a vampire and revel in the romance between Keth and Talia. Talia and Keth are amazing characters who deserve a full book! However, leaving the story as it is will also satisfy your thirst for a good read.

A sweet paranormal romance short story. Talia, Princess of the Fae, walks among humans known as Natalie--a star actress. Her life is going very well until it's suddenly interrupted by Faldo...the last person she expected to find in her trailer on the set. He wants her to locate Keth, another Fae, who in a different lifetime, was beyond special to both Talia and to Faldo. This short story has strong themes of revenge, betrayal, eternal love, choice and consequence. It's a very quick read of less than 20 pages. The copy I read had a few sections (of several paragraphs each) where all lines were indented (not just the first line of the paragraph), but was clean of typos and spelling errors. I enjoyed this quick foray into the paranormal....and the happy ending after a very dark moment. Recommended to fans of paranormal romance. Content: sensual kisses (but nothing more), clean language. ~Kristin

Sweet Novella! I didn&rsquo;t know what to expect when I decided to read ACROSS THE VEIL and was pleasantly surprised. Ms. Kessler has an easy-to-read writing style that lured me into her world and characters. For a short story, she had a lot of information to get across and she did so with beautiful, descriptive sentences and heated conflict between the characters. The initial re-union between Talia and Keth was a bit rushed for me, but this is a short story after all! I guess that just means Ms. Kessler either needs to write a novel length prequel or sequel to VEIL so that I can truly fall in love with the characters and the wonderful fae world she creates.

I probably would have given this more stars had I not been tricked into paying for it. BN has a habit of charging you when you think its free. Would not have paid money for something so short and obviously a preview.

Great quick little story with great characters. In the short spanse of the story, you really get a well rounded view of the characters and what the story is all about. Again it's a quick read but for the money, it's fun to read while in the doctor's office. Loved it for what it was!
