I have been hooked on Syfy’s new werewolf show Bitten recently. So when the lovely Jessica Majzner contacted me and asked if I wanted to read and review her book Beyond the Veil which is about werewolves and also vampires I jumped at it.
I read all types of books as you know, but have always had a soft spot for supernatural novels since I was a teen. I was a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan back in the day and this got me hooked into vampires, werewolves and ghost stories. Every now and again when I get the chance to read, which is a bit limited at the moment with a teething 6 month old I get myself into a great book.
This month’s book is Beyond the Veil by Jessica Majzner.
A fabled wall, marking the territory of the werewolves and adorned with the severed skull of a once great alpha, stands between Natalya and her prey. When she finds the body of Anesa, her beloved mentor, she is determined to hunt down the vampire responsible. Crossing the border into Claw Haven to follow him is sacrilege though, and the undead werewolves whose skeletal bodies wane and wax with the moon are more terrifying than the vampire she seeks. But there she meets Voren, a werewolf who is a living contradiction to everything she has been led to believe. Her journey into the lives of the pack entwines her and Voren’s fates with that of a master vampire’s: Arkadith. Defeating him may lift Voren’s curse and bring peace to Valwood and Claw Haven, but Arkadith is determined to bring an end to this vampire huntress as well…
A great little fantasy book that is not your ordinary supernatural love story, which do seem to be ten a penny! It’s much better than those. It really is a great little find. One of those gems that you will want to read over again. Beyond the Veil is fast paced with an intriguing storyline. I love all the chat around vampire’s and werewolves and their history. Packs and curses, territories and hunts. These are all included.
The main character Natalya is a strong female who won’t take no messing around. The action scenes in the book are written really well and very descriptive. They give you a fantastic image which is what find adds so much more to a book. Many twists and turns to keep you occupied throughout.
