Veiled Mist by Eleanor T. Beaty
March 18, 2013
I’ve never understood how the people that get to decide which age group a book falls into actually does it, because I’m sure I haven’t been a teenager or young adult for quite some time, yet those are the books I enjoy the most.
Vampires and werewolves, witches, wizards, fallen angels, gypsies and aliens and who knows what I’m going to find next…
I’m quite sure that the experts would say Veiled Mist falls in the teen or young adult section because I absolutely loved it.
First thing I loved; how the author made it really really hard for the reader to like the main character. I mean, I really tried, I wanted to understand, but oh my word, did I want to shake her and tell her to grow up and smell the roses. Obviously, as the book continued and the character grew you started liking her and then rooting for her to succeed and by the end of the book I really just wanted her story to continue, to see what happens to her next.
I was constantly surprised. I love to try and figure out what’s going to happen next in a book, but the twists and turns the author threw in threw me off and it kept it exciting, I never wanted to skip a sentence because I thought I knew what it was going to say, I had to read every single word to make sure I didn’t miss anything.
The attention to detail, everything was so well-described, not only the scenery and surroundings, but also the characters. Their looks, personalities, how they change through out the books to become the characters that they’re ultimately supposed to be. I loved getting to know all of them and really want to know what happens next.
The adventure! Yes, I loved the way it was exciting, nerve wrecking and humorous all at the same time. How Hanna had these dolls to deliver and got stuck in really dangerous situations, but the way she reacted to some of the situations actually had me giggling. I love it when a book can get the reader to have a whole bunch of emotions in a matter of a few paragraphs, this book did that over and over.
I can probably carry on and on about all the things I loved about the book, but maybe I should just say this, read it. Why not? If you like a story that’s a little different then do yourself a favor and read it.
I’ll probably read it again soon – that’s one of the things I love about books, movies and music – reading, watching and listening to it over and over again, enjoying it time and time again, because we can and we should.
Till next time xx
