Image of The Borderkind (The Veil, Book 2)

Myths and legends come to life in an astonishing world that exists just on
the other side of humanity. With its lavish descriptions, epic heroes and monstrous evildoers, Golden's story is one that readers won't want to put down. The second in a series, this tale can stand alone, and it ends with a cliffhanger that will leave readers wanting more.

Oliver Bascombe discovers that human myths and legends have a basis in reality when he's taken by the Borderkind through the veil that separates two magical kingdoms from the rest of contemporary times. On a quest to rescue his kidnapped sister from the hands of a legend turned monstrous, he is assisted by Kitsune, who can turn into a fox.

As Oliver and Kit run from those who would oppose them on both sides of the veil, other Borderkind are trying to stop the slaughter of their kind by evil forces. Drawn into the search are Oliver's fiancee and the Maine police detective who is trying find out who killed Oliver's father. (Bantam spectra, Apr., 400 pp., $12.00)
