At the mercy of the Trinity Foundation, grad student turned half-Fae Elizabeth finds herself alone on the wrong side of an Irish myth thousands of years in the making.

Elizabeth Tanner is no Tinkerbell, and her life is no fairy tale. Broke and drowning in student loans, the one thing she wants more than anything is a scholarship from the Trinity Foundation. But after the ancient Irish text she’s studying turns out to be more than just a book, she becomes their prisoner instead. And when Trinity reveals Elizabeth is half-Fae, she finds herself at the center of a plot to save the magical races of Ireland from a brutal civil war.

As Commander of Trinity’s elite warriors, Finn O’Connell isn’t used to having his authority challenged. He doesn’t know whether to punish or protect the infuriating young woman in his custody. When he discovers the Dark Fae want to use Elizabeth’s abilities to control the source of all power in the universe, he’ll risk everything to help her.

At the mercy of Trinity and enslaved to the Dark Fae, Elizabeth finds herself alone on the wrong side of an Irish myth thousands of years in the making. Refusing to be a pawn in their game, Elizabeth has to fight her way back to the man she loves, but to do so, she must wage her own war against the magic that binds her.

Through the Veil is one of the best things I've read in a long time. I got a chance to read an advanced copy, and I'm glad I did.

When you read a fantasy romance, often you get one or the other. You get a great fantasy story with a token love interest, or maybe you get an awesome love story in a half ...more

I knew two things. One: I was on my own. And two: I wasn't going out like this.

The Good

Fae! I love stories with the Fae because they have some amazing magic and are generally not to be trifled with.

I can't even imagine where the story will go from here. It starts off with Elizabeth noticing strange ...more

First of all, in the interest of full disclosure, this is not my normal genre for books, but when your daughter writes a novel, it's required reading, and I'm so glad that I read it! What a great story! (And I'm not just saying that because she's my amazing daughter.) I couldn't put it down. The cha ...more

Okay, guys, I'll be honest. I'm a sucker for fantasy. So, yeah, I loved this. Of course I did. There was no way I couldn't have.

The story is fast paced, well written and completely engaging. It has you down on your toes till the end. There ...more

By Notadinosaur February 09, 2016

I've not read a lot of romance, my memories of the genre hearken back to friends of my mother reading books with covers embossed with half naked sailors clutching bosom and ships wheel (I'm assuming both equally important to their quest?). My interest never really went any further than that, nor if ...more

Elizabeth is a hardworking student. She has applied for a scholarship from the Trinity Foundation and is spending a lot of time on research for her thesis. She's translating a book written in old Irish. There's something strange though as the book never stays exactly the same. A visit from the Trini ...more

By Elaine February 22, 2016

This is a definitely different story, with Irish mythology, an American student, three magical Irish races interconnected yet separated by the Veil, a plethora of double dealing, manipulative beings, lots of fighting and romance. What a combination!

Elizabeth is studying a recently obtained ancient t ...more

When I found out we had the opportunity to review a Fae book, I jumped on the chance. I am so glad I did! If you are a fan of Irish mythology and things we may not be able to see, you need to do yourself a favor and check out this book.

Since I love a good paranormal romance novel, imagine how thrilled I was when my amazing daughter-in-law wrote one!

One minute, Elizabeth Tanner is working on her thesis. The next minute, an Irishman from the Trinity Foundation is trying to walk off with the book...and a dragon is attacking her advisor. She's not easily convinced of what she sees in the days that follow... but three things become clear:

Some of the other reviews highlight some plot points and a bit more of the world in THROUGH THE VEIL, so I'll build on some points that didn't get covered as much.

So let me first say, I'm not normally a fan of Fae paranormal romance books. I don't know why. Just more of a fan of vampire/werewolf st ...more

Elizabeth Tanner begins her journey in the library, studying an ancient text about the Fae. She's started to see strange things in the book, like images moving, and words changing from one viewing to the next. But she doesn't really think anything of it until a dragon comes out of the book and attac ...more

By Tracey February 20, 2016

I was totally pulled into this fae world created by Colleen Haverson.

I have to say the story doesn't always run at a fast pace, there's world building and characthers to get to know but it kept me hooked.

Elizabeth is an Epic characther, just an ordinary girl studying literature, then pulled into a w ...more

4 ½ ★

This was one book that really surprised me… in a very good way. Being (I think) Colleen’s first book I wasn’t sure what to expect but the blurb sounded interesting so I went for it.
Boy am I glad I did not miss out on this book. It was a page turner from page one and I had a hard time putting i ...more

By Kae February 21, 2016

I was excited to read a book about the Fae. This one went into a lot of detail about the different fractions and the fight between them. Unfortunately for our heroine, who was dropped into the middle of it all ,she learns first hand. Luckily for her she is a college student and just happened to be t ...more

Hello feisty heroine meets broody, dark, and entirely to sexy for his own good, hero.

I'm kind of at a loss for words as to how much I adored Through the Veil. Normally I shy away from fantasy novels. Not because I don't like them, but because I'm more of a contemporary girl. But let me just say...C ...more

By Elisabeth February 23, 2016

I judge books by two things: how quickly they grab me and suck me into the story, and whether I finish the book, close it, and start it again immediately. I'm thrilled to say that Through The Veil had me from page one. Twice.

Elizabeth is a smart and strong character whose passion for Irish literatur ...more

When she’s not making up stories or teaching, she can be found hiking the rolling hills of the Driftless area of Wisconsin with her husband and two children.
