Review: Across the Veil by Lisa Kessler

Title: Across the Veil
Author: Lisa Kessler
Source: Received from author in exchange for an honest review


Princess Talia from Summerland has been hiding across the veil in the human world for the past five years.

Starring in a hit television show as human actress, Natalie Thurmont, her charmed new life is shattered when the past comes knocking on her door.


Across the Veil was a nice, short paranormal love story. Princess Talia crosses the veil in order to live in the human world. She is running from the man she has been betrothed to. In the human world, she goes by the name Natalie and is an actress for a hit television show. After 5 years, she is found.

This is a pretty good story. I think it would have done wonders for it to be novel length. There was so much back-story that I felt I missed out on. There wasn't time for the characters to be developed. There is so much the author could have written about to lengthen this story.

It has lots of potential though. I thought the plot was intriguing. I would have liked to know more about this fantasy world that Natalie comes from – it sounds like a neat place! The book held my attention all the way through, and the writing was good as well. I'd recommend this for fans of fae, as well as other paranormal lovers. It's also good if you're wanting a quick 30 minute escape from the world.
