Smashwords book reviews by Juliann Whicker
Lady of the Veils

What an intense ride! This book took me from high school to a Tim Burton directed Seelie underworld. It was a fascinating mixture of folklore, high school, and the Wizard of Oz.
My favorite part was where the heroine loses her name and becomes trapped in a black and white emotionless world without any loss of pace or my attention. I love how the writer manages to make wherever Karen is feel real however imaginative and unreal they may be. These are realistic and complicated characters in a rich and subtly portrayed world.
I think people would like this who like Holly Black's Faery world, Or Carrie Jones' Need series as well as Brenna Yanoff's "The Replacement".
I think that for a YA it has more adult themes and would recommend it for older teens or adults.

This story definitely held my interest, and while the language wasn't particularly inspiring, it conveyed a certain voice.
I enjoyed the pacing, the world building, the plot, but most of all, I liked the underlying theme of coping with or not coping with loss and trying to move on. I thought the author nailed the turmoil and conflict we feel dealing with the death of a loved one.
