Beyond The Veil
Beyond The Veil: A Muse Urban Fantasy (Book 1) | Pippa DaCosta
3 posts | 5 read | 1 to read
They say Im half demon, but I like to think of myself as half human, especially as the demons want me dead. Charlie Henderson is living a lie. Her real name is Muse and her attempt at a normal life is about to go up in smoke. When a half-demon assassin walks into her life, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake, Muse must return to the one man she hoped never to see again and ask for help. The Prince of Greed isnt known for his charity. The price is high, and the cost could tear her apart. Trapped between the malevolent intentions of a Prince of Hell, an assassin with ulterior motives, and her bloodthirsty demon-kin, Muse must embrace the lure of chaos at her core; the demon inside her, in order to survive. When your ex is the Prince of Greed, you'd better be ready to raise hell. (Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2014 Quarter-Finalist Top 100 in Genre.) Praise for Beyond The Veil - #1 The Veil Series.

I mostly liked this book. I read it straight through but...I had trouble connecting with the MC. Muse just didn‘t click with me. I did empathize with her backstory on an emotional level—but her present troubles, the ones that outfitted the arc of this particular story, didn‘t make me hunger for more. That said, I do want to know who she ends up (Yep, that kind of girl 👠), so I might read the next, if I run out of TBRs at some point 😂 😉

I discovered this author this year and I loved the book I read, so I had high expectations for this one. I was excited to read another book by her but, in the end, I was quite disappointed. It's not really a bad book but I wasn't invested in the story and the characters weren't so good either (they weren't bad, just... not good good).

I wanted to love this book. There are so many great reviews for it, it sounded amazing. But I couldn't. It was hard to understand the motives of the heroine. She just didn't seem to know what to do or who to trust, then got mad at everyone but herself for the way things turned out. May try it again.
