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....

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.

One of the best in the series!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Exciting, Thrilling, even after 5 other books

What was one of the most memorable moments of Veiled?

Opening the book, allows you to regain the relationship with old friends, and meet some new ones

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

Alex as always

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Alex put to the test like never before

Any additional comments?

After 5 books one would figure book 6 would be a filler. One would be wrong. Book 6 stands out like no other. It could be read on its own, but reading the other 5 would be a good idea and wonderful time spent. I hope this series continues to many more books and soon.

Disappointing

This entry was very unsatisfying with respect to either its internal plot or moving the overall story forward. Once again Alex accomplished little other than surviving and adding more enemy mages to his roster. It would be nice to see some plot threads begin to wrap up.

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!

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.

Too much foul language too little story

The early books in this series began rich in story and little foul language but this book was tedious and foul when other words would have been more descriptive.

Can't get enough!

This is my third time through. I recently found the books in paperback as well. I dive into this world as easily as sliding into my favourite jumper. Especially in the holiday season it's a good escape and I lose myself in the words.

Good but series has run its course

Storyline consistent with previous installments. Mic you've listened to first several books then this may be too much of the same.

As with previous books, narrator iscexcellent.

Hmmm.

What made the experience of listening to Veiled the most enjoyable?

The narrator is pretty great.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

There was a clear climax to the story, but it didn't feel nearly as 'epic' as the other books in the series.
