January 8, 2018
When Nickolas Valadon, nephew of the High Lord of New York, goes missing amidst other vampire abductions by the Human Order of Light, the task of finding Nick goes to Remare. Known as a ruthless, but sexy investigator, Remare contacts the Elemental, his former lover, Miranda Crescent, to assist in the hunt. As they work together, his desire increases to the point where he will defy the devil himself to have her—despite the punishment that will be meted out, death. Having been forsaken because of Remare’s fealty for High Lord Valadon, Miranda distrusts the dashing vampire she once fell for, even though she still yearns for his sensual touch. During their search, Miranda will discover secrets about her Elemental origins and ancestry that may threaten her status at House Valadon. However, burning desire is not easily denied and feelings long buried intensify to searing heights. In a world turned chaotic by the HOL, Miranda and Remare will risk the vengeance of the High Lord to be together and discover a world of passion neither has ever known before. But passion comes with a price and secrets, no matter how well-guarded, never stay hidden for long.
From page one Veil of Darkness is a page turner. Unexpected twists and complicated relationships including the smoking hot chemistry between Remare and Miranda. While their connection is intense and you want them together, I can’t help but feel for Valadon (and I’m Team Remare!) who has claimed Miranda as his yet she wants nothing to do with him. Veil of Darkness is written so that you feel the tug and pull Remare faces as his desire vs his loyalties are tested. Scenes are detailed, the words draw you in, and the characters are developed and fascinating. You learn more of the character’s backstory as the series continues. A wonderful suspense and action novel complete with a sizzling romance. A very addicting series that will have you wanting all of the story now. I’ve said it before but it’s still holds true, I’m fascinated by this world Diana Marik has created.
