The Veil - A Review

Addy is a normal high school teen, that is until she starts to see strange, disturbing images - like the silver frog hopping around on the coffee shop manager's neck.  Addy passes this off, but when the hottest guy, Lucas, starts to notice her she begins to question herself and the growing "hallucinations" she's experiencing.  Stick around as Addy is about to learn she is a part of a special breed of people called the Annorasi and her very existence is viewed as a threat. 

Will she survive her tests and the oncoming trial?  Find on on November 1'st when The Veil by Cory Putman Oakes will be revealed.

I was given the privilege of reading an advance copy of The Veil and let me tell you, it was awesome!  It may be written for the teen crowd, but it kept me turning the pages until the very end.  It has all the makings of a big screen movie.  It's adventurous, mysterious and down right thrilling - I LOVED it!!

You can pre-order The Veil at Amazon or Barnes & Noble or for more information check out the author's site at; http://www.corypoakes.com/
