Detective Devon Harrington is a member of the Extranormal Investigations Unit, a team in charge of tracking down the perpetrators of non-human crimes.  Recently his focus has been on a serial killer called the Black Hole Killer, but the last murder seemed to be targeted at a particular victim – the Maitri.  Now Devon finds himself put in charge of the personal safety of the mesmerizing woman thought to be the sole reason the Veil remained in place.

Lady Helene Du Solaire is a member of the Order of Light.  A priestess raised on duty and trained to be the keeper of the Veil.  When her student is killed before her, she finds herself given a vampire guard to insure her safety and that of the world.  But is she safe from Devon?

The Veil is a fascinating look at a paranormal infused future world where humans and non-humans exist and there is always a threat of being invaded by the Others again.  I loved the interesting take on vampire and shapeshifter lore that makes up a part of H.A. Fowler’s world.  Terrific characters and a fast-paced, ever-changing story make The Veil a book to be read in a single sitting!
