About this ebook


The Veil Series starts here. Reviewers say; "Epic!" "A spectacular series!" "Best series EVER!" And it's now complete!

If your ex is the Prince of Greed, you’d better be ready to raise Hell.

Charlie Henderson is living a lie. Her real name is Muse, she's half demon, and her attempt at a normal life is about to go up in smoke. 

After an assassin tries to kill her, 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. His price is high, and the cost could tear her apart. 

Trapped between the malevolent intentions of the scheming Prince of Hell and the cocky assassin with ulterior motives, Muse must embrace the demon inside her if she has any hope of surviving them both. 

Complex characters, original, and twists galore. The phenomenal Veil Series is an action-packed, gritty urban fantasy for fans of Ilona Andrews, Lilith Saintcrow, and Jeaniene Frost.

This book and the entire series is completely amazing. The story lines were extremely creative and will keep you on your toes the entire time. It is by far the best series I have ever read. You will feel for every single character in these books whether good or bad and you will feel it down to the core. I was not able to put down any of the 6 books (including the prequel) because I just had to know what was going to happen next. At the end I was happy but so sad it was over. Every detail was so descriptive that I felt I was there watching the story unfold right before my eyes. Nothing was ever expected and had me either giddy with happiness or deeply hurting for Muse and Stefan. I so recommend to read the entire series and I promise that you will love it as much as I do!!

Writing was good with decent characterisation but muse is a bit of a pain and I am not sure if I connect with this character as I am not sure she is that likable because she is portrayed as weak and I don't really like it

It is a book that is definitely unique and won't leave you bored for even one second. I had to force myself to slow done so I wouldn't finish the series in just a few days. I highly recommend it!!!

About the author

Born in Tonbridge, Kent in 1979, Pippa's--- "Wait a second. Let's cut to the chase. I write kick-ass urban fantasy novels with conflicted characters, breathless action, and no-holds-barred dialogue. My books may not leave you feeling all fluffy and warm inside, but they will excite you. There will be plot-twists, angst, probably a few dead bodies, and very likely your favorite character will turn out to be the bad guy. Don't say I didn't warn you..."
