Review: What Lies Beyond the Veil by Harper L Woods

Title: What Lies Beyond the Veil

Series: Of Flesh and Bone #1

Author: Harper L Woods

Once, we’d worshipped them as Gods.

For nearly 400 years, the Veil has protected us from the Fae of Alfheimr. In their absence, our lives have shifted from decadence and sin to survival and virtue under the guidance of the New Gods. I’ve spent my entire life tending to the gardens next to the boundary between our worlds, drawn to the shimmering magic like a moth to the flame.

Then, we died on their swords.

All of that changes the day the Veil shatters, unleashing the fae upon our world once again. The magic of faerie marks those of us they mean to take, but the Mist Guard protecting Nothrek will kill us all before they let the fae have us. There’s no choice but to flee everything I’ve ever known, not if I want to live to see my twenty-first birthday as a free woman.

Now, they’ll claim what’s theirs.

But before they capture me, Caelum saves me from the Wild Hunt. Fae-marked and on the run, he is able to fight back in ways I only dream of. From tentative alliance to all-consuming passion, our bond strengthens as the fae close in and evil lurks ever nearer. With my life on the line, he is everything I shouldn’t dare to want and a distraction I can’t afford. I can’t seem to stay away, not even with something greater on the line.

My heart.

Estrella is at the mercy of the Lord of her town, no choices apart from what he wants. And he wants her as his wife. One night Estrella makes all hell break loose, literally!

On the run with her brother from everything they have been taught about the Fae, they bump into Caelum, and he promises to take her somewhere safe and of course their romance ensues (mainly with him being full on constantly!!!)

‘I would burn the world to the ground and lay it at your feet if you so much as asked it of me, and yet you give me nothing. You’ve never once told me that you feel the same way I do.’

I guessed the twist quite early on, how Estrella missed it I do not know! But anyway. Surprise. I love Caelum!

This quick little fae read was action packed, spicy and it’s true, if he aint fae, he ain’t bae!!
