Summary

My name is Alexis, Lexie to most everyone. And I'm a Necromancer.   

It's not as much fun as it sounds, but that's not the problem this time. I haven't seen anyone but Miles in the last month since New Orleans. Talking on the phone? Yeah. Well, except for Zeke. A few text messages was all I've gotten. Until now.  

We're going on the guys' yearly climbing and camping trip. With all of our secrets out, the tension between everyone is high. Everyone is pissed at each other, and I'm just trying to keep my head above water.   

But it's time for a decision. Who am I going to be with? Will I end up with anyone? Will our family stay together?

love this series

Great audiobooks, the narrators did a great job. Now when I hear Lexie's voice in my head is the voice of this narrator, it is a very good match.

Need more!

I love Lexi’s story and the guys. Personally Zeke is my kinda guy. When is the next book coming? The fight for the veil will be great.

Not disappointed

I was hesitant when I noticed the narrators were different for this book than the previous ones, but I honestly didn’t even really notice. Everything flowed nicely and the story continues. This book did seem a little slower than the rest but still good :)

For a full read

It’s apparent to me now that I skim over an awful lot when I read books, especially for the first time. I’ve read some of the books in this series more than once and have actually listened to every one that’s out now. There are entire scenes that I don’t even remember happening! Thank you, audible, and B.L., for this experience. I love this series more than I can even express in words. Thank you.

I love this series so much

New Orleans changed everything. Lexie hasn't seen any of the guy except Miles since they returned. Phone calls and text messages, nothing more. However, now it's time for the guys’ annual climbing and camping trip. With all of our secrets out, the tension between everyone is high. They've decided it’s time for a decision. Lexie needs to choose. If only it were that easy.

August 15th -August 24th. Barely over a week.

I love The Veil Diaries. I love everything about it; Lexie, each of the guys, Rory, Maria. I'm always afraid that I'm going to be disappointed after building such anticipation. There has been no letdown. The attention to detail is superb. It's never rushed, yet it's also never static. It's a natural progression. These relationships feel as real to me as relationships in my own life. They are being built block by block. These relationships are the main focus of the book. It's a very personal book. It's emotional, painful. frustrating. It's a book of doubt, second-guessing, accusations, and angst. At best it's a struggle, at worst an outright fight. But this weight proves the significance of their attachments. They aren't willing to lose one another. They are creating something precious and strong.

I loved the multiple POVs. Loved the revelations. Loved the Veil. Loved the initial outcome (although I know there are still rough patches ahead). Loved the overall story. Love the emotional impact I felt. More than anything, however, I love Lexie, Miles, Asher, Ethan, Isaac, and Zeke. I love them Individually, as friends, and as a group. I love their character growth, their strengths, their weaknesses, their love. I love, love, love this author and this series!

I now hear Lexy as Elizabeth Hart. She has grown into this role nicely and I can't imagine any other voice. I haven't become as fond of Nelson Hobbs but in most cases, he no longer stands out as "wrong" for some of the boys. Hopefully, we will get to a good place during the next book. Maybe as the boys all age, he will seem like a better fit.

Eeeeh....?

I liked it but also didn't. it could have a bit more focus on the whole omg the world is going to burn because the veil is sealed. the whole drama of the boys could be handled various ways. the boys could actively court her to sway her to a more singular preference. they could just hold their collective horses until school is done or until the world wasn't at stake. their priorities are so off it's aggravating. yes I know their teens but given their collective experience this far... they should know better. personally I would pick Miles. he's calm and sensible and looks beyond the immediate emotional response that flairS the situation to even worse levels. and I just loved when he decided to finally kiss her. swoon. so yeah... idk if I'll keep on this series.
