Review: Beyond the Veil by Pippa DaCosta

I can add one ebook to my 2015 EBook Reading Challenge. I found this one online some time ago and it finally made it to the top of my to be read list. With no further ado here's my take on

Beyond the Veil by Pippa DaCosta

“They say I’m half demon, but I like to think of myself as half human, especially as the demons want me dead.”

Charlie Henderson is living a lie. Her real name is Muse and her attempt at a normal life is about to go up in smoke.

When a half-demon assassin walks into her life, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake, Muse must return to the one man she hoped never to see again and ask for help. The Prince of Greed isn’t known for his charity. The price is high, and the cost could tear her apart.

Trapped between the malevolent intentions of a Prince of Hell and an assassin with ulterior motives, Muse must embrace the lure of chaos at her core; the demon inside her, in order to survive.

When your ex is the Prince of Greed, you'd better be ready to raise hell.

The Review:

I really enjoyed this book, and plan on reading the rest of the series. While I’m not normally one for urban fantasy Muse, with her fiery half demon self, was a real joy to read. There were ups and downs and more than a few who do you trust" moments. 

The main character, Muse was believable and easy to sympathize with. From the explosive reintroduction into the demon world to her longing to just be human, she was a well thought out and developed character.

Our two feature male characters, Akill & Stefan, were for the most part believable. As the story is told from only the POV of Muse I was left wondering what each was thinking and what their motives could have been. This could be a good thing, as long as it is addressed in the next books.

All in all I liked it and would suggest it to anyone who likes a little supernatural in their lives. 

Peace and Love!
