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.
