Review #205: Veiled Shadows- Morgan Wylie

Title: Veiled Shadows
Author: Morgan Wylie
Pages: 360
Rating: 4/5 Stars

Summary: Shadows linger where light is obstructed, and truth is veiled. 

Evil is an untreated disease in the once beautiful realm of Alandria.

Kaeleigh is faced with a revelation that she must reconcile. She will decide if discovering the truth is worth the unknown consequences to both herself and her friends.

Daegan, the Ferrishyn warrior, is conflicted by more than his loyalties, and is confronted with emotions he doesn’t know how to deal with. A choice must be made. A choice… that may cost him more than he ever wanted to give.

The Droch-Shúil—enforcers and servants of the ancient darkness—continue to cast their shadow over Alandria seeking those who can be turned to their side.

The magic of The Orchids is growing, but not everyone will survive what is to come.

Veiled Shadows is the second installment in The Age of Alandria series: the story of the Sol-lumieth’s quest for freedom of self and the power to battle the evil of the Droch-Shúil.

Review: Veiled Shadows was this weeks book of the week in my review group and luckily I had scooped it up while it was free. This instalment started right where the first book left off, which to me is key to a sequel. It was a quick and easy read that held my attention throughout, I liked that there was a kind of love triangle going on. I know who I want Kaeleigh to end up with but I'll have to continue the series to see what happens.
As far as characters go, I feel like they all grew as characters but I found that they had no depth. I think that was why this was such and easy read. Kaeleigh grew more with her new found powers and she is becoming a girl to reckon with. In Veiled Shadows I found that Finn and Chels really took a back burner, and I wanted them to be more involved. I'm glad Daegon is now free, week almost free.
This was another great addition to Morgan Wylie's epic fantasy series. I can't wait to see where she takes us next. I would recommend this novel to fantasy lovers.
