Ageless squabbles, two races fighting for survival, and an unlikely alliance? No, this isn’t describing America in the last month, I’m talking about Beyond the Veil by Jessica Majzner, a novel which features all of your favourite night dwellers. Vampires and Werewolves are at it again in this young adult fantasy tale, but it seems to have more flesh on its bones (pardon the pun) than other stories in the same genre with undead werewolves, and the sanctity of worlds hangs in the balance.
The realms are separated by a barrier containing the skull of a former alpha among the werewolf pack – and if that’s not a sign to stay away, I don’t know what is. However, she crosses over, meeting the most unlikely of companions called Voren.
Well, I’ll stop there. I don’t want to give anymore away than needed, BUT I can tell you a bit more about the author. Jessica is a 25 year old who lives in Minnesota with her fiancée and two dogs – one of whom likes to hijack her website from time to time. Beyond the Veil is her debut novel, and if you haven’t checked it out yet, you probably should. It’s been receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews on Amazon, currently carrying a 4.5 star rating, which I must say, is pretty stellar.
Jessica also runs a website, as aforementioned, where she, err, her dog Hazel, does book reviews. As well, you can also catch some of her original artwork up there, excerpts from her book, and more information about her. You can check that out here: http://www.beyondvalwood.com
All in all, Jessica is a wonderful young lady with a gift for all things artistic. She clearly has an affinity towards animals, which instantly makes her A.Okay in my books. But beyond that she’s a wonderful storyteller and an incredible artist. Beyond the Veil is available on Amazon right now, so go grab a copy and see for yourself why she’s getting all the praise in the world!
