Two worlds, one fate.
Elizabeth Tanner has one goal: to find her mother in whatever dimension she’s imprisoned. But to do that, she has to face her estranged father, and to do that, she needs a shot of whiskey…or seven. But after an attempt on her life and the return of her lost love, she wakes up with one hell of a hangover and a whole barrage of questions.
Finn O’Connell doesn’t know why the Fianna want him to aid Elizabeth in her search, but he’ll take any excuse to be near her again. Together, they dive headlong into the shadows of her mother’s secrets and find themselves embroiled in a Fae rebellion that will test Finn’s loyalties and their love.
With the Faerie realm verging on chaos, Elizabeth and Finn will embark on a quest that will lead them from the streets of Chicago to London’s seedy Fae underground. But rescuing Elizabeth’s mother means journeying to a place Finn can’t follow, and Elizabeth is forced to make a choice between finding her at last or saving her own soul.

Children of the Veil is the second book in the Aisling Chronicles series that picks up right where the story left off in the first book, Through the Veil. The series main character is Elizabeth Tanner who thought she was just a regular broke college student until she finds that there is a whole h... ...more
This is the second book in this fast paced fantasy romance series and continues on from where "Through the Veil" ended, so I really recommend reading that one first! The heroine is Elizabeth Tanner, who discovered she's only half human in the first book and that, as the Aisling, she's the focus f... ...more

After everything she went through in the first book, Elizabeth Tanner proves she's more bad-ass than ever! She's now looking for her mom, who's being held prisoner somewhere, maybe even another dimension, but she doesn't hav... ...more
This is a continuation of Through the Veil and is not a standalone.
I have my moments when all I want to do is get lost in another world. I think we all do, that’s why we read, but what Ms. Halverson created will truly suck you in! The way she describes the landscapes and things in general really... ...more
This book was a whirlwind of action and magic, with enough steam to burn the pages. From one peril to the next, Elizabeth and Finn keep you invested every step of the way. This was a stellar sequel to THROUGH THE VEIL, and I can only hope there will be a third installment in the series! ...more
Holy wow, you guys, I'm seriously blown away with what I just read! Yikes, I need to sort through that enormous mess of thoughts and emotions in my head!!!
So, anyway, Elizabeth has broken things up with Finn and decided she will look for her mother, while making sure she doesn't ever become a sac... ...more
The action continues as Elizabeth tries to find her mother.
Finn and Elizabeth make such a good team.
There is plenty of conflict, battles and romance.
A great sequel to the first book Through the Veil.
Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for the 3rd book. ...more

Thank you, Entangled.
A few months ago, I was introduced to this new series that had a Fever-vibe, and I really enjoyed the first book, so I was only happy to read the sequel.
The Aisling Chronicles series follows Elizabeth Tanner, half human and ha... ...more

I originally reviewed this book on my Rant and Rave About Books Blog: https://rantandraveaboutbooks.com/201...
* I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.*
Rating: Rave Review- 4/5 Stars
I reviewed Through the Veil this week in anticipation of... ...more
Children of the Veil is the second book in the Aisling Chronicles Series. The story picks up where the first one ended. My only complaint is that there was no lead in. With the number of books I read and the length of time between book 1 and book 2 I needed to go back and refresh my memory as to... ...more
Children of the Veil, Colleen Halverson
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Fantasy & Paranormal, Romance
Well, wow, this is such a brilliant series.
I’d read the sample of book one before requesting this, and when I was accepted I bought book one and read that first. Don’t be tempted... ...more
Another touching piece in this incredible story! Colleen Halverson was able to not only do as well but BETTER than the first installment in the Aisling Chronicles. Picking up right where the story left off you are immediately thrust back into this magical situation, the veil of our world that OTH... ...more
1st - I received this book in return for my honest review 2nd - I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first. A lot of this felt like a filler book for book 3. I just wish these characters got a little bit of good in this book but instead it felt like a battle the whole time. Optimistically inte... ...more
Sucker for a love story. Characters are so fraught with universal frailties that adds to the plausibility of the story line. Look forward to the continuing story .. A kingdom to save or a new one to create. A love story to tell. ...more
Good read but can't help feeling the end was a bit of an anticlimax. And definitely a feeling that was a bit too much going on all the time ...more
So this book was very good I'm surprised because the reviews weren't all lovely but I loved this series. As the story unfolds you get a better understanding of it all ...more
Children of the Veil is the second and I guess last book of the Aisling Chronicles by Colleen Halverson. When the first book, Through the Veil, ended, we were left with Elizabeth back in the mortal world, in search for her mother. In this book we see her and Finn and new characters continue their... ...more
This book is the second book in the Aisling Chronicles and it can’t be read as a standalone. The book starts where Through The Veil ended. I’m really loving this series and the characters. I loved this book more than the previous book. This book doesn’t end with a cliffhanger, but I hope there wi... ...more
I enjoyed this book as much as the first. I admit, though, that I had to stop reading it after getting in 3 chapters. Halverson has done such a great job world-building that I went back and reread Through the Veil to keep the characters fresh in my mind. Once done, I restarted and couldn't put Ch... ...more
**I received a free ARC in exchange for my honest opinion. What follows is that opinion.**
If you’ve read any of my other reviews, you’ll know how important strong, well-developed characters are to me. In this case, it took a good portion of the book to decide how I felt. I had mixed feelings abou... ...more
