About this ebook

Walking the line between royal and renegade has never been so treacherous. 

Five years ago, facing an arranged marriage in a distant country, Princess Brynna ran away and became The Veil, a masked vigilante protecting the streets of Forcadel. But when her father and brother are murdered - and the killer is nowhere to be found - she's forced back into a life of crowns and gowns instead of cloaks and cut-throats.

But The Veil's problems remain. Her nemesis, Lord Beswick, continues to prey on the most innocent in the city. Unable to stand by and do nothing, Brynna strikes a deal with her overly-protective captain to finish what she started before she's officially crowned queen and she has to hang up her mask for good.

Now, Brynna must find a royal murderer, take down a slumlord businessman, and keep her kingdom in one piece - not to mention stay alive herself in this award-winning first book in this fast-paced young adult epic fantasy.

★★★★★ "The City of Veils is entertaining from the first page to the last. The wait for the next book will feel interminable." - Catherine Thureson, Foreward Reviews

Read this in less than 2 days! Great characters even the secondary make you want to get to know them better! World building is amazing and the storyline is full of fun twists and lots of suspense. Looking forward to the continuation of Brynna's story - she has major challenges ahead.

Brynna is one of my new favorite characters!!! Brynna is smart, sarcastic, tough, strong, caring and stubborn! She is definitely not perfect and I found her to be so relatable! Felix is the best! I love how he is over-protective and loyal and able to stand up to Brynna. A lot of funny moments between the 2 of them. Brynna's sister-in-law Katherine kept me guessing as to whether she was telling the truth or if she had other motives. Most of the time I wasn't sure who to trust and not trust. I really loved the world building, all the twists (the more twists the better!) and all the great characters (and I hope we get to learn more about some of the side characters in the next couple of books). This is another fantastic book by S. Usher Evans. One that I couldn't put down and with that ending, book 2 can't get here fast enough!

About the author

S. Usher Evans was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida. After a decade of fighting bureaucratic battles as an IT consultant in Washington, DC, she suffered a massive quarter-life-crisis. She decided fighting dragons was more fun than writing policy, so she moved back to Pensacola to write books full-time. She currently resides with her husband and two dogs, Zoe and Mr. Biscuit, and frequently can be found plotting on the beach.

Evans is the winner of the 2019 Florida Author Project YA Book of the Year (The City of Veils) and is the author of young adult and adult novels.
