A Lifting the Veil Story
Notorious master thief Finn Grayson is hired to break into a high-class skyscraper in New Shanghai and steal a priceless artifact known as the Shard. But someone’s gotten to the Shard first—and the penthouse suite turns out to be a dragon’s lair.
Cameron Feilong, Guardian of the Earth Shard, is ancient enough to realize that he and his unbidden guest are being used like puppets on a string. Forming a shaky alliance is the only way for them to survive and to stop their ruthless foes.
Unfortunately, Finn and Cam seem to be forever one step behind. To learn more about their clandestine enemy, they travel together from walled Asian cities, barren tundras, and underwater temples to secret paranormal clubs and legendary elvish cities rising high in the trees or buried deep under glaciers. Finn and Cam must learn to trust each other before it’s too late, for bringing together the five Elemental Shards will spell the end of the world.
First, even though this is #6. I’ve not read the first 5 and I was not lost.
Second this is told in Finn’s POV.
I normally enjoy all of this authors books, and I did find I liked this one okay, it wasn’t my favorite. As normal the writing itself was brilliant, even though it’s not a style I care for. The subject was also fine, fantasy with some D/s thrown in. I just couldn’t connect with both MC’s. Maybe because we never heard from Cam, just Finn. IDK. And if I can’t connect, then I can’t enjoy. Also, even though the sexual scenes are written well, I found one to be a little graphic and too painful (not in a good way). something about spikes of the penis hitting the prostate, and where Finn seemed to like it, I had to stop for a few minutes.
With all that aside, the journey these two go on to finish the quest is a great one. Action and adventure at ever turn. Being crossed and double crossed. Great fun.
The world that is painted is amazing, you can almost feel yourself being in the Orient with Finn. The way we are told about everything, the details. Again She does an amazing job.
I just wish, we had more time being with inside Cam’s thoughts so I could have really connected on all levels.
