Who is the true child of the prophecy?
The Shadow Lord has the Philosopher’s Stone, and therefore an army of invincible penumbra. He also possesses the fragments of Excalibur, the legendary sword prophesied to be the instrument of either his own destruction, or that of the Child of the Prophecy. The sword, he knows, requires blood to be reforged… and he knows exactly whose blood he wants.
Meanwhile, the Watchers are desperate to steal back the fragments of Excalibur and find out how to reforge them before the Shadow Lord does. Isdemus places Peter and Lily in Carlion’s sister cities for safe-keeping until the war begins. But Peter and Lily have an idea that might enable the Watchers to steal back the fragments, in spite of the Shadow Lord’s invincible army. Their plan requires them to travel halfway across the world, to an island largely believed to exist only in Greek mythology. Along the way, however, the Shadow Lord uses a pawn to convince Peter and Lily that they are powerless. Without their gifts of the Ancient Tongue, will either one of them stand a chance?
In this gripping conclusion of the Piercing the Veil trilogy, the Watchers and the Shadow Lord both amass their ranks, the battle begins, and the true identity of the Child of the Prophecy is revealed—to the shock of all.
PRAISE FOR IMPOSSIBLE:
“C.A. Gray poetically combines Arthurian history, science and fantasy into an epic adventure on every page. Impossible is addicting and keeps your mind reeling with questions and excitement as Peter and Lily fight the Shadow Lord.” –Aurora Whittet, Author of The Bloodmark Saga
“I thoroughly loved this series from the first page of the first book!.. This series was so captivating that I read it in three days. …one of my favorite parts of this story was the relationship between Peter and Lily. Their inability to understand each other was very realistic and perfectly fitting for their ages. Plus, their budding romance never once felt forced. The secondary characters were also well designed, with their own problems and emotions that added depth to the book without detracting from Peter and Lily…. I greatly enjoyed reading this series and I wish there was more coming!” –Lindsay Hiller, Author of Bestselling Young Adult novel Reaper
“C.A. Gray has done it! She has brought the conclusion to her series home with a flourish! Impossible just may be the best of the series, driven by determination, strategy and loyalties, and even the budding of young romance. What a wrap! All of the tension and intrigue of each volume magnified times ten! From the wonderfully created characters to the dialogue that fit so well, her world actually breathes with each turn of the page as heroes rise, heroes fall and heroes reveal themselves with as much grit as the original King Arthur and his Knights.” –Dii, Tome Tender Book Blog
“I am totally blown away by the work of C.A. Gray. Her Piercing the Veil Trilogy is a master work of fiction. Her grasp of Arthurian legend, Greek Mythology, Physics, Egyptology, Astronomy, and people is spot on. The entire trilogy is a seamless work of world building, a tapestry without a single pulled thread, it is phenomenal.” –The Studio
“C.A. Gray knocked it out of the park with IMPOSSIBLE, the final installment of her action-packed trilogy! I desperately wanted to draw the book out and savor it, yet at the same time I couldn’t WAIT to find out how it ended. I devoured it as quickly as time would allow… There were definite influences from other great stories (Harry Potter being the most obvious), but it didn’t detract from the story. It only made me admire her work more, because C.A. Gray holds her own next to J.K. Rowling! You go, girl!” –Caitlin, Royal Book Reviews
