When it comes to picking up a new book, I often rely on recommendations from friends or intriguing cover art. That's how I stumbled upon "What Lies Beyond the Veil." Truthfully, I thought it was a YA book. It is not. It may be a slow burn, but man oh man, there are some references in there not meant for teens. It was delightful, to say the least. This is a book for adults who are ready to dive into a world that doesn't shy away from the complexities of life, love, and human nature. It's a book that challenges your preconceptions and leaves you thinking long after you've turned the last page.
"What Lies Beyond the Veil" is just the beginning of a larger series, and that's where things get even more exciting. While I thoroughly enjoyed my time with this book, I have to admit that committing to a five-book series right now feels like a substantial undertaking. But that's not to say I won't return to this world in the future.
The beauty of discovering a series is that you can savor it at your own pace. You can dip in and out of the world created by the author, taking breaks between books to savor each installment fully. It's like having a treasure trove of stories waiting for you whenever you're ready to dive back in.
Now, I'm curious to know if you've read "What Lies Beyond the Veil." If you have, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it. Did it take you by surprise like it did for me? Were you intrigued by its willingness to explore mature themes? And if you haven't read it yet, does my review pique your interest?
