THROUGH THE VEIL
The fate of a civilization is riding on the confused shoulders of a heroine whose past is shrouded in mystery. Walker does an excellent job of creating a world whose inhabitants are fighting for their very existence. Dark and evocative, this tale is filled with danger, betrayal and
a destined love.
Kalen has never doubted Lee's importance in the war to rid Ishtan of the Anquar Warlords. That Lee disappears and reappears is frustrating, for Kalen knows Lee needs to be awakened and fully committed to this world, not Earth, where she was placed as a child. When Lee is finally forced through the veil to Ishtan, she's afraid she's losing her mind. But the reality of the situation rapidly becomes apparent. What's not so clear is why Lee is so vital to the rebellion and why the Warlord Char is desperate to capture her. The fate of a people may rest on her decisions.
