Piercing the Veil #2
Publisher: Wanderlust Publishing
Publication Date: April 27, 2014
Genre: YA, Sci-Fi & Fantasy
The Shadow Lord rises again seeking a weapon of ultimate power.
Peter Stewart is a dead ringer for the legendary King Arthur, and because of that, everyone in Carlion believes that he is the Child of the Prophecy, destined to destroy the Shadow Lord. But Peter doesn’t want to be a hero; all he wants to be is left alone.
Lily Portman also fits the prophecy. Having spent her entire life as an orphan and a misfit, Lily would love nothing more than to be the Child of the Prophecy, so she envies Peter… but she’s also developing a crush on him. And it seems to her that he couldn’t care less.
Isdemus and the Watchers believe that it is only a matter of time before Peter’s twin brother Kane betrays them all and frees the Shadow Lord. The winner of the war to come depends on who has the legendary Philosopher’s Stone—the only problem is, it has been lost since the days of Arthur. With the help of a skeptical anthropologist, the Watchers attempt to decode the ancient treasure maps that lead them to the heart of Egypt and the dawn of time. Meanwhile, Lily and Peter discover that Peter holds the real key to the mystery… but will they be too late?
PRAISE FOR INVINCIBLE:
“C. A. Gray has already built her magical worlds, fleshed out her characters and set them on their tension-filled journey. This time out she adds even more tension, while dropping nuggets on information along the way. Her characters are becoming more flesh and blood, learning to work as a team in spite of personal feelings. Some find young love or crushes, which proves the resiliency of youth and the hope for the future these kids hold. The rapid-fire pace is reeled in when necessary and fueled to maximum power at precisely at the right moment. Once I started, I had to keep reading and following every twist that unfolds!” –Dii, Tome Tender Book Blog
“The Piercing the Veil series is a wholly original and keenly insightful story leveling the field for a new era of Sci-Fantasy to exceed reader’s expectations. I love the fact such a large amount of known science is etched into the fabric of the story itself.” –Jorie, Jorie Loves a Story
“C. A. Gray does an excellent job of describing tricky scientific terms without being condescending. I loved the plot and character development, and the author captured the teenage angst perfectly. Sometimes the second book in a trilogy can be a bit slow, but that isn’t true for Invincible, which is just as fast-paced as Intangible. I would highly recommend this series.” –Lindsey, Lindsey’s Library
