Publisher's Summary

Twenty-one year old Tom Jewett has embarked on a new career. His new job as a cub journalist with the Traber Herald sends him and his wife, Sally, to Traber, Colorado, the birthplace of Tom's great grandfather. Almost immediately after settling into their new Victorian fixer-upper, Tom's dreams begin. But, are these dreams of an old room decorated with antiques and dimly lit with kerosene lamps -- simply dreams? Maybe, just maybe, the room does exist. Days of searching lead to absolutely nothing, not a trace of the old room, until one night when a terrible storm hits Traber and the power goes out. It was to become the blackest of nights for young Tom Jewett and the deepest of mysteries for Sally.

    "What a story!"

    This book was written by an author who was new to me and performed by a narrator who was new to me as well. I found the book to be engrossing and full of some unexpected twists. The ending was not what I predicted. I enjoyed being able to visualize so much throughout the story based on the descriptions. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was provided with this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily written this review.

    "This Book Went Over My Head..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This Book Went A Certain Direction I Could Never Grasp A Hold To...It Just Seemed To Leave Loop Holes That Weren't Fully Explained.. The Narrator Was Good But The Story Was Extremely Strange...I Would Not Recommend This Book...

    "Maybe not horror, but a surprisingly unique tale"

    I really enjoyed this listen as it was a unique story and plot that was full of twists and intrigue. Although I didn't find this book to be horrifying, or even scary, for that matter it did have enough out of the ordinary experiences to keep me entertained; yet it's not the stuff that would haunt my dreams. Both the characters and plot are well developed and really pulled me in causing me to listen straight through in one evening. I would attribute that, in part, to the narration done be Alan Philip Ormond. His voice was just eerie enough to make it work without being overly dramatic. The publisher's summary pretty well sets an accurate expectation of what is to come.

    I would recommend this listen to anyone that enjoys mild horror/spooky stories. A review copy of this audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in return for this unbiased review. My hope is that this review helps in your decision to obtain this book.

    "Intriguing...makes you think!"
    What did you love best about The Room Beyond the Veil?

    It was a very intriguing story. I loved the twists and turns of characters, Sally and Tom and their travels back to the past.


    What does Alan Philip Ormond bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Excellent narration, his voice was just right for this type of story. It was just on the verge of being creepy with the perfect amount of emotion.

    Story
    "Great Sci-Fi Listen!"

    The room beyond the veil had me on the edge of my seat. A very good story uniquely written that is captivating and interesting.

    Without giving away spoilers, a couple moves into an old house and immediately begins an adventure of discovery and mystery. The story is different than any other I have read. I really enjoyed it! However the were a few little things that seemed out of place with the writing, which I only mention in the event the author ever decided to revise the written book. First was the formal way the couple always addressed one another. There was a lack of pet or shortened names between the long-married couple which seemed strange given how close they were. I also found it very distracting that the author named a real-world commercial business several times. It would have been just as easy to say a character applied at a local store which would have actually added more flavor to the rich ambiance of the novel without dragging the reader out of the story.

    Aside of these two points the book was fantastic! I listened to the last two hours non-stop, unable to put it down. Nice history in it also along with the supernatural. I was given a copy of the audiobook in exchange for a fair and completely unbiased review.

    "Truly Unique, Totally Unexpected"
    Any additional comments?

    I thought 'The Room Beyond The Veil" was a truly surprising tale. I was immediately drawn in by the characters and absolutely had to know what was going to happen to them. When things started to get more interesting (no spoilers here!) I had several guesses that ended up being wrong. I love being surprised and it's a fairly unusual occurrence. This book is a combination of paranormal, historical, romantic and thrilling. It's an odd book that I would suggest to any friends that enjoy thrillers, mysteries or romance stories!

    "All kinds of unexpected twists to keep you guessing!"

    I absolutely loved this book! There is not a single dull moment in the entire story. Several times I thought I knew what would happen next only to find the author throwing me for another loop! I did not expect any of the twists and definitely did not expect the ending.
    The narration is great, too! I highly recommend this book and will most definitely be looking for more from this author and narrator!

    "Unique and interesting plot"

    The author does a good job creating a story that keeps the reader guessing. It starts out a little slow with very simple dialogue but as the story progresses it becomes more mature in the writing. I would've liked to have seen more character development and more detail and description of the settings. I think with a little more elaboration this Arthur could have been fantastic.I feel the starter has good potential I look forward to reading more of his books in the future.

    "The Room Beyond the Veil"

    The Room Beyond the Veil
    : C.H. Foertmeyer

    This book combins currant fiction with time travel, historical fiction and romance. It was an interesting concept but a bit confusing in places. I still enjoyed it.




    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Alan Philip Ormond.
