Publisher's Summary

I am fire. I am destruction. I will be their nightmare.

The veil fell. Demons are here. Muse knows she can stop the slaughter, but to do so, she must return to the battle-scarred streets of Boston and face the cold, hard, truth. Her old life is ashes. Her love, turned to dust. But all is not lost; a spark of hope remains. A spark from which an inferno can blaze.

To stop the demons claiming Earth as their own, Muse must unite those capable of repairing the veil. The Dark Court, led by her Prince of Lust father, seek to recruit her to their cause. They want the veil destroyed for good; for chaos to reign for eternity. She will need to maneuver around their deadly intentions, and enlist the King of Hell's help, before it's too late.

For Muse to succeed, she must survive her father, save her soul, resurrect her love, forgive her enemies, and betray a trust. She must be everything she can be; demon and human. She must be their nightmare.

In this, the fifth and final Veil Series book, we return to where it all began. To the netherworld, where once a wretched half-blood girl surprised the Prince of Greed. To a world where hope is fantasy, and love, a disease.

Muse is ready to take the fight to the demons. Are you?

    "Closing the Veil"

    I just finish the fifth audiobook of The Veil Series. OMG... Pippa Lancaster you rock! This was a great story from start to finish. I'm so happy that you give it the ending that I had so hoped for. I definitely wanted Muse and Stefan together and not with Akil. I am wondering about the ending though because it seems that you might add more to this series or even write a spinoff to it. I'm wondering about the Prince of Greed Akil and his words at the end. I'm going to miss this series. For anyone who hasn't read or listened to this series then you're missing out. .

    Narrator Hollie Jackson blew me away with her telling of this series. I must agree with Pippa when she wrote awhile back about having a crush on the narrator because of her narration of Akil. She's really good and her accents and voices of each character is pure perfection. All I can say is this is a must get series but the audiobooks are my favorite because each story comes to life. Hollie does a great job at bringing each story to life as if you're there. Overall, a perfect 5 🌟 rating!

    "Looks like the final story of the Muse, but is it?"

    As with all of the other Muse Series books, I really enjoyed this one. Pippa didn't disappoint me. Muse and Stefan make such a cute couple, fighting the demons and trying to save the earth. There is still much more that can be written about them, that I would be surprised if this is the final book in the series. Pippa does such a great job with the characters, the story, the suspense, the thrill and the romance side of it. Hollie Jackson had her work cut out for her with this story. She did an excellent job. Love Pippa's creations.

    "Intriguing series"

    I was intrigued by the story line and characters. The primary character is a bit winey but overall interesting. I enjoyed the interplay between her and the various characters. The idea that our world and hell are only a veil apart was intriguing. I look forward to reading the rest of the stories. Luckily all five are now available. I appreciated the wrap up of the series. Don't know if she is planning others or not but I'm happy with this ending. Hope reigns eternal.

    "Great Series"

    I love the characters, plots, story lines and worlds Pippa Costa created. Fortunately I only had to wait for final book. I was hooked on page one and loved the way bad guys turned into good guys or did they? The story follows a 1/2 blood demon-human. She lives in a world 1/2 bloods r considered fair game and most demons want to kill them or own them. The first book opens with the heroine meeting a client and having her business blown up from there things get interesting. Holly Jackson did a wonderful job of narrating the series. She had great material to work with but her voice and narration were perfect. If u like fantasy you will love this series. For those who like a lot of sex in their stories better skip this one but for everyone else I highly recommend.

    "Great series with great ending"

    OMG what a great series. This was an excellent series where you love and hate the characters. they were my friends .......they were my enemies......... but most of all they were engaging for my mind. I love Stephan and wish I could have them for him myself. Muse got on my nerves half the time. One minute she was too cocky and the next minute she lacked confidence but I love her just the same . I could not get enough of these books. I will be looking for more books from this author. I enjoy her writing style and her ability to let you see the good and bad of each character. AhKil...... was Ahkil and I think I loved him the most. Time will repeat itself. So see you on the back end...

    This sounds like it may be the last book, but is it? I'll start the Caos Series and wait and see. I'll miss Muse and Stephan!

    "Please don't let it end!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I'd recommend this book because as a finale to a series - there is nothing better!


    What other book might you compare Ties That Bind to and why?

    I'd compare this to Kim Harrison's "The Witch With No Name". I believe these are comparable because each is amazingly well written, both provide appropriate resolution to the conflicts and both also compelled extreme reactions - fear, joy, pain, sadness - a loss of control.


    Which character – as performed by Hollie Jackson – was your favorite?

    While I enjoyed all of the characters she portrayed, Ryder was my favorite. "His" drawl, the tones - everything was rich, consistent and, even knowing Ms. Jackson was a woman - didn't make a difference. For me, she became Ryder and there was more than one smile, sigh, wince - caused not only by the story itself, but also by the reality portrayed by Ms. Jackson's performance!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Okay - honestly, this was a ROUGH book for me. I reached the last two chapters on the train. When I reached the car at the station, I paused, started the car, and restarted the story. By the time I reached the house - OMG! The veil was closing with Muse and Stefan on one side and Akil on the other. I knew from the previous book and Akil's soliloquy that something - something unselfish and heartbreakingly sad - was about to happen. I was there sitting in front of my house with fat tears streaming down my cheek! If I could have reached through the closing veil to pull him through myself - I would have done so! I found myself actual speaking his name....so sad!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm conflicted now - I'm ECSTATIC I found this series, it's amazing. I'm EXTREMELY saddened that it's now ended. I was happy there were so many in the series available, but maybe that was detrimental because now it's over and I've within the space of a week - I've both gained and lost so much! I'll be looking for more of Ms. DaCosta's book and more narrated by Ms. Jackson! Well done, ladies - well done!

    "And They All Lived Happily Ever After"

    After a relationship filled with betrayal, violence and strife Stefan and Muse got their HEA. In the final book Pippa DaCosta tied up all of the lose ends. The only thing I didn't like about this book is that it seemed to drag as Muse over analysed everyone's thoughts and actions, including her own. And just when I thought the series was going to end on a sappy note, Akil saves the day with hope for the future. I enjoyed this series and wouldn't mind seeing a series based on Akil.

    this series has driven me to distraction wanting to know if certain things would happen and feeling like the story would never get there. it's been great and frustrating in equal measure at times. on the whole I really enjoyed it.
