Imagine an urban social worker psychiatrist battling not only to save the children in his care but also to conquer his own demons. The smallest detail (a tiny spider, for example) can suddenly loom into an epic opponent in this multi-layered, irresistible psychological thriller. The story jumps seamlessly from San Francisco's most depressed neighborhoods to a mythic landscape, cast of characters, and battlefield implied by the present but out of reach for ordinary perceptions. Until now. You will never see life in the same way after joining the author Among the Veils.

Currently reading this now. It's a great escape from reality and has a magical feel to it. Clay, the main character, is complex yet very like-able and keeps you very entertained throughout the chapters. I can't wait to see what happens next!!.
An absolutely fascinating read! Never a dull moment throughout its entirety! Your in for an adventure the moment you crack this book open. Its full of abundant imagery and humor. I found the book to be very inter-dimensional as the author brings out different aspects of existence, while telling the story on what Clay will get into next. Grab this book it will leave your imagination flowing wild.. I'm way to anxious to get my hands on book 2. I can visualize there being movies made based upon the Paper Thrones series... possibly. Among the Veils is way too good!!!
