Technomancer Catherine Sharp has an extensive resume. Rewiring celebrity panic rooms. Doing IT work for the best casinos in Las Vegas. Completing server repair. But nowhere in her job description does it say she’ll be investigating grisly murders. However, a girl is dead, and the gods are calling for the head of her killer. And the deity who owns Cat’s soul has demanded that she lead the hunt.
Adding to the fun, a team of ruthless mages is scouring Sin City searching for a magical veil that they think Cat possesses. By hook or by crook, they will get the relic, no matter how many bodies they must leave in their wake. One little problem, though…Cat doesn’t know what or where the veil is.
With two mysteries to solve, and the gods growing impatient, Cat knows she has little time to piece together the flimsy clues. Now, she must enlist the help of her best friend and his new girlfriend, put her trust in one who has betrayed her, and wade through some murky family secrets, before she winds up worm food herself…
Place your bets, for the truth is about to be unveiled.

This book is a great sequel to Wild Card. I can't wait for the third book.
Cat Sharp is back and rocking Sin City anew. Loki's charged her with solving the murder of a friend's daughter, and we can only imagine the characters found within his circle. A bit out of her wheelhouse you say? I'll say! She's a technomage. Gifted in the way of machines and computers, certainly, but a detective? Loki makes no mistakes (that he'd admit to, anyway) and, well, Cat's not in a position to decline. Jamie Wyman has fought her way back with a vengeance and it is duly noted. Unveiled is an absolutely energetic, infectious, stupendous read! "Mages looking for a veil. A veil that belonged to Polly but that the mages had assumed I would have because of a presumed connection to some thief. There were also the matters of her stalker and the break-in. But I wasn't supposed to be focusing on that. Loki insisted I keep my eyes on the puzzle of Muriel's death. All without factoring in her heritage." Cat dabbles in technomancy, but the cast of characters are light years ahead. Watching their respective skill sets unfold was impressive. Credit to Ms. Wyman who wrote dynamic action scenes. I could envision the the vibrant pyrotechnics in fevered display (and it made me want to jump in and kick as@!) Cat could hold her own, to a point, but when gods are involved, Loki intervenes to secure his investment (and interest?) in the search. It's enough to make a girl swoon. But not necessarily from romance. Is there any, you ask? Physical attributes are are appreciated, even suggested for further exploration, lol, but the only established couple are Cat's BFF, Flynn (remember him?) and his new GF, Karma. Which begs the question: I thought Flynn was harboring feelings for Cat? I'll tell you this much: Cat doesn't love Flynn's unavailable status. Perhaps interrupting Flynn mid-thrust (literally, wow) awoke lust-filled feelings too secret to contain? Marius, devious and delicious as ever, returns to complicate the search for the murderer, but also serves to mediate hostile tensions when dealing with gods and cross purposes. Cat also reneged on a date and Marius is there to collect. *sighs* Marius is so fun and charming, I say throw caution out the window, Cat -- indulge! [Now that I've finished Unveiled...ummm...WTH, Marius?!] Does Cat find the murderer? Who remains in possession of the Veil? Will Loki consider Cat's mission as services rendered and release her from servitude? Does romance spring to life after surviving such danger? To which pairing do I refer? Read Unveiled and revel in kickas$, badas$ Wyman world...worthy of an even healthier Kickstarter!
