Stacey has yet again made me love another one of her books, just by putting words to paper. I am very happy she has ventured into the vampire gener, with her witty humor, and the dark twists that she writes into some of her books, makes this book go straight to the top of my read list.
Veiled is a crime drama filled with vampires and politics. This book hits on some major world problems that are in the media right now, like discrimination and racism. The vampires are wanting to be out in the open but the bias of the normal people not looking past what they are. The lead in the book is Vincenza or Vinx. She is a character that I thought was going to be a shy girl, from what she is described as in the beginning. Well girlfriend went through some things that made her a complete badass and I am like "YES!!!" sign me up I need that confidence in my life. Veiled leads you through her story and how she becomes a badass and is used as a weapon by scientist, after she was found when her family was slaughtered by a hive and she was left for dead.
Vinx has immersed herself into the vampire world, with the help of her friend Mics. (Mics, I can only hope to get a spin off, or novella to learn some backstory on her past and to learn more about her character. I don't know why out of her or Carter I want to know about her, she seems to have a dark past that I want to know about). She is getting to the bottom of the scandals that are being played out. She is not like most vampires( no she does not sparkle). She was made to be a weapon to use against the vampires. Nothing and no one, are what they seem to be. There are many twist and you cannot predict where this book will take you.
Stacey wrote this is a way that it does jump timing in chapters for instance the first chapter, is in the present with the next going back to a time in the past to answer questions of how this came about. I personally love stories and authors who do this because I want the clear picture of what, why and how it happened. I cannot wait to get the next book in this series. I want the many questions that I have answered. I want to know what happens next! I have been bugging her with questions, but I have not convinced her to give me any spoilers, I am just like you waiting to see what will happen to Vinx in the next book. I hope that it is soon, I do not think she is going to like me texting her everyday until the release.
Keep checking back and I will post when the next book in the series is coming out!.
