Overview

Through the Veil (Shiloh Walker's Veil Series #1) by Shiloh Walker

Found wandering in a field as a child, Lee Ross was given a name by the state and put in a foster home—without anyone realizing she wasn’t entirely human. All her life, she’s tried to forget the odd dreams that have plagued her, of monsters creeping through the night and a man fighting demons by her side. But the bruises she wakes with are all too real to ignore…

Then the man from her dreams appears—in the flesh. His name is Kalen—and he insists that her destiny lies in his world, the world of her dreams. To save their people, he must convince Lee to give up everything she knows, follow her heart, and cross over into the Under Realm—even though once she does, she’ll never be able to return…

As long as she can remember, Lee Ross has dreamed every night of being in battle along side warrior Kalen Brenner. However, when she awakens she is in her earthly bed, but sees the bruises on her body as if she was in combat. She knows she is different, but is unaware that she was sent from her home THROUGH THE VEIL to Earth to keep her safe from the Warlords.--------------- In Ishtan, Kalen knows his people can never be free of the brutal Anquar Warlords without Lee's help. Her on and off presence jeopardizes his quest as he needs her full time in Ishtan. When she finally comes back THROUGH THE VEIL while awake, Lee fears she has gone insane even as she recognizes Kalen from her nocturnal fantasies. He must convince her that her mind is sound and her people need her while Warlord Char wants her abducted. ----------------- This is a fabulous action packed romantic fantasy that hooks the audience from the moment Lee¿s dream lover shows up in the flesh and never slows down as the bewildered heroine struggles with believing the truth of her heritage. Fans will believe that the world on the other side of the veil exists, which is key to this fine tale of a realm trying to survive and an innocent woman being the destined one as savior and lover if she can adapt to her new environs and survive betrayal.------------ Harriet Klausner

Great story line and concept. Disappointed in Lee. She started out being so bad ass but was a simpering female most of the book. Way too much information and vocabulary packed into this novel. Ended up being a good story but confusing at times.

Through the Veil is mesh of a book. It's a romantic fantasy that reads like an urban fantasy, but these character also wield plasma charges and cold-firing guns (and cannons). The world setting is excellent, intriguing and reminiscent of Anne Bishop's Black Jewels books (which are a favorite of mine). The book, however, is not without its flaws. Lee is set up to be very powerful, almost infinitely powerful, special and an all around bad-ass. However nearly the entire book she's shown as a shaken, obtuse woman. Some of this is understandable, since she's not the same person awake in Ishtan as she has been dreaming in Ishtan. It's her refusal to believe in herself, combined with everyone else's blind faith in her specialness that wears the patience thin. Kalen is a drool-worthy, sizzling hero and had my vote of most awesome character until about halfway in, when Lee repeatedly tells him to stop touching her and instead they have sex. Set in a frame of Kalen being the hero fighting against a race that's kidnapping and raping women, keeping them as sex slaves and breeders, the multiple times Lee said no and Kalen kept going anyway until Lee finally loosened up and gave in to her own lust killed off the like I had for him. (Note: I don't consider the scene to be rape per say, but it was too close to non-consensual for m tastes.) I'm afraid I just couldn't simultaneously accept that the Anqar demons are evil for what they do to women, but when the hero does it it's supposed to be hot. As stellar as the world building is the description gets repetitive and there's a lot of time spent repeating that could have been spent on other things, namely the missing battle scenes. After all Kalen and Lee and everyone else are in the middle of a huge war for their world, yet there aren't any battles shown "on screen" and the darker aspects of the tale are glanced over and described as little as possible. Lee and Kalen might be watching a pyre of the teen soldier that just died in a fight with the giant wyrms that the Anqar demons put on Ishtan to take out the natives, but the emotion of these moments is glanced over. Given the power of the lust between Kalen and Lee, the vividness of the world setting and story concept, and the depths of the emotion Lee feels between what she's supposed to be and what she thinks she is, the lack of power to the darker parts makes the story feel like Walker is pulling her punches. The combination of how very much I loved the fantasy setting, Kalen in the beginning and Walker's style versus the things I was dissatisfied with leaves me feeling very conflicted about this book. Certainly it will appeal to romantic fantasy fans, and probably also to Anne Bishop fans. The uniqueness of the world and its conflict is engaging (and that's why I bought the book), I just feel unsure that this is the tale Through the Veil wanted to be. One thing I do know is that if Ms. Walker ever turned her pen toward a true dark fantasy or urban fantasy I would be all over it.

I found through the veil to be a very interesting and captivating story. The main character Lee Ross and Kalen Brenner to be very well rounded and extremly entertaining. The sexual scene as I recall wer very well writen with graphic languange and good details for anyone into Paranormal romance without the gothic portraing of vampires or demon erotic display. I enjoyed the books plot and situational senarios between the demons and refugees as they battled for Kalen homeworld. The way the aurthor wrote in lee history to fill the gaps in Kalen world and in her Family history was slightly puzzling but over all the book was very enjoyable. I can't wait to read the next installment to the saga.
