Publisher's Summary

Diviner Alex Verus and the Council that governs the magical community have never gotten along. But with his former teacher back in Britain, Alex is in desperate need of allies, and he'll do whatever it takes to get them - even if it means accepting a job with the Keepers, enforcing magical law. Alex forms an uneasy alliance with his new partner, Caldera, but his attempt at legitimacy quickly turns lethal when a mission puts him in possession of an item that factions both inside and outside of the Council would kill to get their hands on.

Once again caught in the middle of a deadly conflict, Alex will need all his abilities to figure out who his friends are - especially when enemies are hiding on all sides....

    I hold a BA in History from York University of Toronto; a 3yr Diploma in Computer Networking from Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario. I have been "reading" audio books sinces the late 80s and a member of Audible back to 2004. What a really like is a good long story preferable over 30 hours. :)

    "Motions"

    I read this in about 2 days and it cheered me up to having another Alex Verus book but it felt like Benedict need some things to happen to set up for Richard but didn't want to leave Alex out; which in many ways is his natural place in the political world. The book felt "thin" (not as much of a pun as I would like) and forced. Milestone happened but it felt a little too much like god pushing the pieces into place rather then a natural or believe pattern.

    Still however willing and ready to read book 7 and very likely book 8 too.

    Gildart performance remains strong.

    "Another good one!"

    The Alex Verus series never fails. I just wish I didn't have to wait a year for another one. Great performance like always and the story advances in a very interesting direction. If you're a fan, you'll love it.

    "Full of excitement!!!"

    I throughly enjoyed this book, it was filled with action and alliances of unexpected sources. As usual Alex didn't fail to put his special touch of skill always adding that special bit of turmoil fight or flight as only he can do. However, I wish he could find that special person because sooner or later Luna is going to find her path in life. But by the way the story ended either the counsel has lost it's damn mind or I missed somethings along the way. What ever the case I can't wait to get my hands on the next book.

    "One of the Better Ones"

    This audiobook is one of the Better ones in the series. New characters and old ones are evolving into dynamic people. I recommend this one.

    "Too much mage politics and squabbling"

    I love this series, but the dialog gets a bit tedious when mages start to squabble. More magic, less arguing, please!

    "I love this series"
    If you could sum up Veiled in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, unexpected, engaging


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I had a hard time pausing it to interact with other people.
