Review of "Through the Veil" (Veil, #1) by Shiloh Walker
Through the Veil - Shiloh Walker

Not sure what to think about this one so no rating.  I'm not recommending for or against.

 

The elements were there.  I liked the writing style.  It wasn't the same old insta-lust fated mate crap some urban fantasy -- which genre maybe this was or wasn't since mostly in a parallel dimension -- substitutes for story.


The ebook I borrowed via library was actually hard to read so could factor into that. Too many words strung together without spaces kept interrupting my reading flow and slowing me down. Which isn't the fault of the story itself.

 

I certainly should have been invested in the desparate straits of that world's humans versus invading demons.  That part kept drawing me in to read more.  But, I never really connected and it never really developed the way I needed -- maybe a little because of the lustful interludes but mostly because the worldbuilding elements and the invading aliens had glimpses of a richer story.  A richer story that possibly reading further in the series would develop.  This would not be the first series I could enjoy once over the first-book-itis.

 

The romance -- while progressing at a good pace and understandable why the interest -- kept wavering on whether it wanted to edge into some of the worst elements of the fated-mate-possessive stuff where perversely I started to wish it would rather than read the lusty bits where the H and h seemed to draw some pretty arbitrary do/don't and is/isn't-taking advantage rules.  Again, made me not really connect to characters that should have drawn me in.

 

I dunno.  This clearly is not a good review of the book because I'm not sure how I feel about it or what to say.

*sigh* — yet, she's seen as a super soldier and has been fighting side by side with them for decades:

Characters off for me but I'm into the story and their fight for survival.

Hmmm..intense storyline right up my alley but not so sure about the budding "romance" (or how "informed" the probably eventual consent from a main character not sure what's real with memory lapses is).

Mr. R picked this first in series from ebooks available.  A series and an author I've been meaning to checkout for a long time.

 

Could be good with engaging characters, great worldbuilding and a complex, juicy new series for me.  Like others in genre could also be bad by going too much into insta-love fated mate and/or pack/gang style violence.

 

I never know with urban fantasy or paranormal books until after I try 'em.
