Peek Inside Children of the Veil

Elizabeth Tanner has one goal: find her mother and free her. But after an attempt on her life and the return of her lost love, her search leads to more questions than answers. Finn O’Connell doesn’t know why the Fianna want him to help Elizabeth, but he’ll take any excuse to be near her. Diving into the shadows of her mother’s secrets throws them into a Fae rebellion that will test their love, and rescuing Elizabeth’s mother means making a choice between finding her or saving her own soul.

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.

By Carrie October 18, 2016

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 hidd ...more

By Elaine October 17, 2016

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 for ...more

**I received a free eARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

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 have m ...more

By 1-Click Addict Support Group November 01, 2016

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 pa ...more

I originally reviewed this book on my Rant and Rave About Books Blog:

By Kelly November 24, 2016

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

By Lydia December 31, 2016

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 sacrif ...more

By Carole March 04, 2017

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 half ...more

She doesn't want to see her father, but she has questions about her mother and he's the only one who can give her the information she needs. ...more

By Charlotte Lynn November 09, 2016

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 wha ...more

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 to read ...more

By ZINORA M. MITCHELL February 20, 2017


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

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

**I received a free ARC in exchange for my honest opinion. What follows is that opinion.**

If you‰Ûªve read any of my other reviews, you‰Ûªll 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 abo ...more

By ☆Tweety ~ purplebass ☆ December 14, 2016

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 qu ...more

By AK November 04, 2016

I have to admit, I was utterly perplexed for the first few chapters, but once the story got going I was just as engrossed as I'd been in the first book all those months ago.  I certainly would have appreciated a bit more of a segue into this book, but if you are a binge reader, then you will have no ...more

When I got an arc of Children of The Veil I was so excited .I dived into this story as soon I could and I thoroughly enjoyed this book !!

In this book we follow Finn and Elizabeth . I loved these two together they had a relationship in the past and one of the things that I love about characters who h ...more

I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley in return for an honest review.

This is the second book of the Aisling Chronicles but the first I have read. Although it may have been nice to read the first in the series as it would have given me background for this book I felt that the story was strong ...more

By Micheala October 12, 2016

I received an ARC in exchange for a review.

Children of the Veil picks up not long after Through the Veil ended. We're thrown right into the story with Elizabeth at a bar being almost killed by one of the many bad things that are after her. Good ol' lovable Finn enters then and saves her. Not long a ...more

By Elisabeth October 19, 2016

I received an ARC. Colleen Halverson delivers another thrill-ride of a romantic fantasy with Children of the Veil! Once again, I was sucked into the book and couldn't put it down. My sleep suffered, but it was worth it!

Elizabeth and Finn are back in a big way. There's a plot against Fae princess Eli ...more

By Hanne December 23, 2016

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 will ...more

By Tracey November 02, 2016

I dived into book one and loved it so when I had the chance to read book 2 I jumped right in.

The book continues Finn and Elizabeth's story, the chemistry between them is good and even though they are trying to keep their hands off one another it is not long until the pages start smoldering.
