HASH(0x99f1e600) out of 5 stars Great world building 24 Sept. 2010
By Michele Lee - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was given this book by the author.

I read this book back to back with Through the Veil, the first in the series, so I'll be comparing the two. Here's my Through the Veil review. And also this review will contain spoilers for the first book.

Veil of Shadows is the second book in Walker's Veil series, which focuses on the world Ishtan, a realm sandwiched between Earth and the demon realm of Anqar. The Warlords of Anqar, a dying race, have been raiding Ishtan for female breeding stock for centuries, unleashing the native demons and monsters of Anqar on Istan, both on purpose and accident.

Walker's world building is absolutely killer in this book, hitting the perfect notes between character focus, showing readers the larger conflict of the land, yet not letting anything be black and white. This book's focus is on a small military outpost, nearly abandoned by the rest of the world who believes themselves to be safe now that the gates between worlds have fallen. But last book's heroes, Kalen, Elina, Lee and more, are still in the wilds of Ishtan fighting the pocket populations of demons, wyrms, not to mention the Warlords who were left behind when the gates fell. They stand between the recovering world and disaster and the recovering world is only too glad to pretend the threat is all over.

Enter Syn and Xan, two warriors in Kalen's army. Syn is his captain, a witch completely unsure of herself now the the Ishtan magic was shattered in the backlash of the gate's fall. Xan is a drifter, a battle-hardened warrior who signs on to Kalen's fight, but whose past is a mystery. While the romance between the two is an important part of the story it's not all of the story and there are frequent point of view breaks to display the larger story of Walker's world.

Also my complaints about the first book are completely invalid for this one. Syn is a more sympathetic character than Lee, and since she's native to both the fight and Ishtan she's more in tune to the world setting (and therefore her point of view contributes better to the world building) than Lee was. Also Walker doesn't shy away from conflicts and fight scenes in this book, while still making them not the most important part of the story.

The pacing is better, and the story fleshier, making Veil of Shadows a fabulous read. It will especially appeal to fans of Anne Bishop or fantasy readers who enjoy a touch of romance and a touch of darkness with their epic fantasy.

HASH(0x99e33354) out of 5 stars 4.5 Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies! 15 Dec. 2010
By Natalie S - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Laisyn Caar is the captain of a rogue army and Xan is a stranger, mysterious, and utterly distracting. Trust or lack thereof is the name of the game in Shiloh Walker's newest, VEIL OF SHADOWS. Xan and Laisyn explore what they both feel and their emotions could be the love of a lifetime or the stuff of which treachery is made.

Laisyn Caar carries the weight of the world on her shoulders. Captain of the rebel troops fighting to keep her homeland safe from demons, Laisyn has a teeny tiny problem - her magic is gone. She has nothing. When it seems as if hope is lost, a new soldier arrives at the base camp. A soldier that is dominant, sexy, and very secretive. A soldier that Laisyn finds herself desiring in spite of the secrets she knows he carries.

Xan has become part of Laisyn's camp for a reason. A reason he isn't willing to allow anyone else to find out. He is cautious but curious about Laisyn and it seems as if he has no choice but to touch her. And touch her he does.

What happens when Xan's true reasons for being in Laisyn's camp come to light? Will she and Xan hold the demon forces at bay or will her lost powers doom them forever?

VEIL OF SHADOWS comes on the heels of the first installment, THROUGH THE VEIL. Xan and Laisyn both have faced hardships and have come through them whole, a bit damaged, but still strong and fiercely loyal to their cause. The world in which Laisyn and Xan live is not a pretty one - nor is it easy - however, the emotions and love Xan and Laisyn have for each other is like a breath of fresh air in a seemingly vast pit of darkness.

VEIL OF SHADOWS is suspenseful, scorching hot, and so darn good it'll make you read it more than once. I am on my third go round and have to admit that I love it more each time I visit this futuristic world. Shiloh Walker continues to draw me in to her wondrous books and I couldn't ask for a better read!

HASH(0x99e32a08) out of 5 stars Awesome Shiloh Walker paranormal romance for those who demand a good story to go along with the heart 14 Oct. 2010
By victoria baardsen - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I love a good story, and then if there is romance to be had: so be it. I don't want it to be the primary motivator for me to read it. I want a story plus! This is the second book I've read by this author. The story is about another member of the group of fighters who are struggling to retain and to recover their world from "other world" intruders. This story is well written, and includes romance with a newcomer into the story with old players re-entering this series with ease. I would encourage anyone who enjoys a good read and romp to read this book over and over again~! It's a keeper!

Veil of Shadows by Shiloh Walker
Paranormal Romance- Sep 7, 2010
4 ½ stars

Veil of Shadows is the second book following her first story, Through the Veil. But this futuristic/apocalyptic series by Shiloh Walker is only getting better! Veil of Shadows can easily be read by itself but it does help having read the first book.

In this story a world ravaged by demons who hunt humans and evil invading Warlords is held on the edge by a small team of rebels. These rebels have finally closed the final gate where Warlords have used to raid and enter their world and raping and stealing woman with any power (witches) to reproduce their own kind. And these Warlords have killed anyone in their way. But the relief that Warlords can no longer enter into their world is short lived with the insurgence of an increasingly desperate and viscous demon population. The rebels can barely hold on and the constant flux of refugees does not make this position easier.

Syn is a witch and a Captain of the rebel forces. When she spies among the last of the refugees a powerful warrior she is intrigued but her work consumes her. But when Xan makes advances towards her she finally lets her passion and guard down. As Xan becomes an integral part of her team she realizes how much she comes to depend upon him and care about him. But danger lurks within their camp and from the stranded Warlords who still would like to capture a witch of their own. Syn has struggled all her life to be independent and live for her mother's memory. A memory of her mother being savagely taken from her by the raiding Warlords. When she discovers that Xan's mother was also lost she feels it brings them closer. But nothing is ever simple and Xan has secrets and a hidden agenda that Syn may never be able to forgive.

I really enjoyed this book! I found the atmosphere of the war torn world compelling but never depressing. The rebels all felt like real characters and although there were many it only added to the story. The author skillfully balanced all the relationships between the characters and I felt they had history and were a real team. In fact, they all made me highly anticipate the next in the series.

This was a fast read. The chemistry between the 2 main characters was steamy and although a bit quick to start it felt believable. The story really revolves around the heroine and the hero while strong was more of a secondary character. But this made the story stronger for me since I felt the best thing about the book was the competent and likeable heroine.

I loved feeling I was in a totally different land with magic, a complex world and courageous characters. This is a series paranormal and futuristic fans MUST try. I highly recommend it and will be coming back for more!

HASH(0x99e327a4) out of 5 stars Incredibly absorbing worldbuilding, romance, and characters! 13 Oct. 2010
By H. Grove (errantdreams) - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Shiloh Walker's Veil of Shadows sucked me in as thoroughly and beautifully as any of her other novels. She creates gorgeous worlds that you can see and feel, and her characters are vivid and highly individualized. Her prose is beautiful and evocative without turning to the purple. It's easy to get caught up in the emotions that war between characters--love and lust, anger and betrayal, suspicion and friendship. With every turn of the page I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next, and Shiloh conveys action and suspense every bit as well as romance and love.
