My Review: Veiled by S.B. Niccum
First of all, a BIG Happy birthday to the author. Ms. Niccum shared with me via email that this review would be live on her birthday. How fun is that?
Secondly, since the e-book itself is the giveaway I'm going to be extremely careful with my review. I don't want to be accused of giving too much away. :)
About the book: "I have always existed, not just me but all of us, the un-embodied spirits who wait to live.”
Tess is an unborn spirit, who is about to embark on a much awaited journey into mortality to a brand new planet called Earth. She is chosen by the Eternals for an important mission, and is put under a rigorous training by a half-human, half-lion Seraph. This training exposes Tess to some of her darkest fears and insecurities. These experiences force Tess to work on her gift as a discerner of thoughts and reader of auras—thus helping her become one of Heaven’s most powerful angels. But even angels falter, and deep inside her a gnawing fear is growing. Will she meet her soul mate in life? Will their love be strong enough to overcome the forgetting effects of the Veil? And, is she prepared to take on the responsibility of keeping the most dangerous renegade and leader of the Fallen Angels at bay during mortality?
If that's not enough to pique your interests, you can check out Veiled's 27!!!!!! 5 star reviews on AMAZON.
Now for my take. I found Veiled to be a story with a unique concept that I haven't seen before. I suppose there are books out there with a before-we-lived-on-Earth storyline, but I haven't seen them. Or heard of them. The author creates real characters for us that we can really get involved with, which is a plus for me since I write (and enjoy) character driven fiction.
Basically, if the description and/or the reviews have you interested--I recommend you check out Veiled for yourself. And, because I love humor, I adored the author's note at the beginning:
This book is a work of fiction. It is neither doctrine, nor doctrinally correct. This book happened because I let my imagination go wild. If you want to know what is real, read the Scriptures!
