Series: Veil #1
Rating: 4.5 Stars

Official Blurb:

58 years ago a gorge opened up from Mobile, AL to Quebec City, Canada to split the United States into the Western States (WS) and the Eastern States (ES). 40 years later, a fog rolled in on the WS that they called the Veil. Within twelve hours it formed an impenetrable wall between the two sides. It's been 18 years since anyone has known what's happening on the other side of the Veil. Now, Lori, an Other, in a desperate attempt at escape from the ES's torture and experimentation, has crossed the Veil and found a world beyond belief. Marcus is a Warrior, but when Lori collapses at his feet wounded and exhausted, he knows he has to protect her. But seeing that she's the first person he's seen in 18 years without wings, he's worried about what her appearance means for his people and the world they've created since the Veil fell. Two new societies: one built on a respect for the natural order of nature and the world, the other built on mistrust and corruption. Can they learn to co-exist once again?

Lori’s world is far different than our own. A gorge has divided what we know as the east coast the Midwest. Everything past the Mississippi River has disappeared. A strange veil now divides what it called the East States (ES) and the West States (WS). Each region has experienced genetic mutation in their population. The ES has The Others whose gifts run the gambit from teleportation, shifters, matter manipulators, and well as witches. In the WS, all of their residents have grown beautiful and unique wings. Science still reigns in the ES as primitive almost Civil War like technology (without the guns) rein supreme in WS.

They have lived apart for 58 years until Lori comes crashing through the veil and collapsing at Marcus’ feet. Her instant attraction and his instant instinct to protect this wingless human hit them like a ton of bricks. Lori discovers just how far her abilities can reach and how much she can learn to love. This story is not only about the post apocalyptic world of the ES and WS. But, of how love can change everything even a rescue mission and what you’re willing to do to save the ones you love. I will tell you this ends in a cliff hanger ending that will leave you wishing the next book was in your grasps.
