Lee is used to have some strange
dreams. When she wakes up feeling battered and bruised, she
canít remember anything other than some faint images. And
then one day she manages to wake up in another world. This
world is war-torn and desperate, and according to the
gorgeous man she remembers from her dreams, she is the key
to stopping the carnage.
Kalen had wanted Lee for years, but
since she would come and go without warning, he could never
have her. Now that Lee has finally joined him on her home
planet, he doesnít plan to let her go. But none of this
matters if they canít figure out how to stop the invasion
that has been going on for years. Somehow, Lee is the
answer, but only if she can remember the real Lee.
It took me longer to read this book
than it usually does. While the action is nonstop and
unpredictable, I just didnít care what happened. I would
put the book down and not have any desire to pick it back
up. Not to mention, I am always a little nervous reading
any book that starts off with three pages of definitions and
descriptions of hierarchies for alien planets.
The best parts of Through the
Veil were Kalen, Morne, a mysterious healer with
lots of secrets and Char, an alien with a conscience.
Kalenís long-held desire for Lee is touching, and I enjoyed
the parts that were in his point of view. Unfortunately,
there just werenít enough of those to keep me interested in
the rest of the story.
