Beginning this year (2021), the books I review will no longer be given starred ratings.
The title of this book could be the synopsis, as it is quite literal.
Two factions of angels are locked out of heaven by their creator after heaven's war with Lucifer. Abandoned and without hope, these two factions remain on earth and evolve into the fantastical creatures that most of us have read about in other books — fairies, mermaids, will-o-wisps, and more. They are all known as the fae in this book series, and with their angelic history, they are unlike any fantasy characters you've read about to date.
The author, Danielle M. Orsino, takes us on a thrilling adventure through time as Queen Aurora — leader of the Court of Light — and King Jarvok — leader of the Court of Dark — take on many challenges in their pursuit to keep their people safe from the new inhabitants of earth, and from each other.
The elements of magick (this is the way she spells magic in her book and I like it) described throughout this novel are woven as masterfully as the fight scenes, and the colorful language used by some of the characters adds to their fiery and sarcastic natures. When dragons that breathe fire, spew acid, and emit ice are added to the mix, you've got one Hell of a book in your hands. Pun intended.
With references to specific historical events we've all heard about before, you'll find yourself thinking, I wonder . . . as you go about your daily life, maybe catching a glimpse into the veil if you're lucky.
