Elizabeth Tanner is no Tinkerbell, and her life is no fairy tale. Broke and drowning in student loans, the one thing she wants more than anything is a scholarship from the Trinity Foundation. But after the ancient Irish text she's studying turns out to be more than just a book, she becomes their prisoner instead. And when Trinity reveals Elizabeth is half-Fae, she finds herself at the center of a plot to save the magical races of Ireland from a brutal civil war.
As Commander of Trinity's elite warriors, Finn O'Connell isn't used to having his authority challenged. He doesn't know whether to punish or protect the infuriating young woman in his custody. When he discovers the Dark Fae want to use Elizabeth's abilities to control the source of all power in the universe, he'll risk everything to help her.
At the mercy of Trinity and enslaved to the Dark Fae, Elizabeth finds herself alone on the wrong side of an Irish myth thousands of years in the making. Refusing to be a pawn in their game, Elizabeth has to fight her way back to the man she loves, but to do so, she must wage her own war against the magic that binds her.
Through the Veil by Colleen Halverson
Elizabeth Tanner goes from seeking a scholarship from the Trinity Foundation to becoming a prisoner and a pawn in a battle for power between the magical races. Unbeknownst to Elizabeth, she is half fae. It is her heritage that enables her to be tricked into releasing a Dark Fae plot and forced into helping the Trinity’s agenda she must find the power inside to survive.
Halverson scripts a highly imaginative and magical tale. I found Through the Veil enjoyable, well-paced and containing a good balance of romance, action and suspense. I would of liked to see a bit more character development because it was missing that character connection but still believe Through the Veilis good strong urban fantasy novel.
I received this ARC copy of Through the Veil from Entangled Publishing, LLC - Select Otherworld in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication Feb. 22, 2016.
