Publisher's Summary

When Euphrankes Holmynn, Captain of the Airship Vector, approaches the High Council with a plan for launching an airship through The Second Veil, an energy barrier that has protected their planet since the beginning of their collective memories, he is dismissed and banished from the city. The Second Veil, and the First, which is made up of the domed cities and shielded roads of their planet, are the only things protecting the shrinking resources that keep them all alive. When the priests in the Chamber of Stars spot a flaming, alien object on a collision course with their planet, and the city of Urv itself, everything changes; such a disaster could kill thousands.

Armed with a brilliant mind and a miraculous new technology, Euphrankes and his team, along with Maester Zins of the airship Axis, must combine forces with the High Council and find a way to save their city, and their planet from a threat unlike any they've ever encountered.

The Second Veil is the second novel in The Tales of the Scattered Earth. Filled with fast action, and steampunk technology, this second novel in the popular new series is a perfect follow on to Aaron Rosenberg's Birth of the Dread Remora, widening the over-all story arc of the series. These novels are stand-alone works - they do not need to be read in order. Future books will gather up the ends and tie them all together.

Look for a new novella of The Airship Axis and Captain Euphrankes soon, as well as a second full-length Dread Remora novel, and upcoming novels by Steven Savile, Keith R. A. Candido, and Steven Lockley.

    "How did they make it so bad?"
    What would have made The Second Veil better?

    In my entire life I can name only two books that were so bad that I stopped reading/listening midway and this was the second. And I read the entire Twilight series.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything not written by this person. I love steampunk and sci-fi and this is terrible.


    What didn’t you like about Mike Spring’s performance?

    All of it. Have some emotion. It was like watching Marvin from hitchhiker 's trying to give an inspirational speach.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No... not really.
