Title: A Veil of Secrets
Author: Hailey Edwards
Series: Araneae Nation
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Release Date: December 2014
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Some secrets are best forgotten.
Fresh from the battlefields of Erania, Marne rides south with Edan, headed for the city of Beltania. Among the Mimetidae guards accompanying them is Asher, who’s been a thorn in her side since the day they met. He’s rude and abrasive…yet he was the first to volunteer as escort.
Marne dreams of a fresh start where no one knows who—or what—she is. But first, they must cross the veil. Rumor has it spirits haunt that grim stretch of road, and unwary travelers who enter are never heard from again.
Veil or no veil, Asher is honor bound to see Marne safely to her new home. Though truth be told, Marne leaving Erania is the last thing he wants. This journey is his final chance to convince her distance will only make his heart grow fonder.
When Edan is lost to the mists, Marne is trapped in a strange land with no allies—with a man who draws her closer every day. Closer to her heart, and her secrets. Secrets she must reveal if they are to save the one man bent on tearing them apart.
Warning: This book contains one heroine willing to fly into the face of danger and the hero who gives her heart wings. This adventure is BYOM, Bring Your Own Meal. Trust me, where we’re going, takeout is to die for. Literally.
Thoughts: Great Read! Marne & Asher's relationship has a bit of a rocky beginning, but turned out beautifully. A Veil of Shadows was an exciting read. Filled with danger, action and romance. Pascale, sister of Maven Lourdes makes another appearance. In this book her back and forth fighting with Lleu was fun. I hope Pascale will get her own book. I love spending time in Araneae Nation. I'm always amazed how intricate the world is.
