Through the Veil
(special $.99 price)
Allied in Flight
The Through the Veil series is a dystopian paranormal world. Although it's dystopian, the world overall is not that much different from ours...at least on the Eastern States side which is where this second book in the series, Allied in Flight, takes place. The ES is filled with cities much like we see today. Very little has changed about everyday people's day to day lives.
58 years ago, a gorge from Mobile, Alabama to Quebec City, Canada split the country. It was a quarter of a mile wide and a mile deep. At the time, it appeared to be just an interesting geological phenomenon. In fact, it became quite a tourist destination. But 18 years ago, a fog rolled in on the Western side of the gorge. They called it the Veil. Within 12 hours, it had created an impassible wall right down the center. Within hours after that, all the adults (and a lot of the children, too) were dead, their bodies...just gone.
Since then, no one has been able to cross from one side to the other...until Lori, an Other with an ability to manipulate energy using the earth’s forces, breached the Veil as she fled from the ES and escaped into the WS (book #1).
ES (Eastern States):
The Eastern States...those on the eastern side of the Veil.
On this side, the government somehow had warning that something was coming and managed to hide and keep their key government and military officials from being affected. Those people began to reappear two months after the Veil fell to reestablish order, but the new world society became a police state with extreme rule and military force.
In the ES, a few people developed gifts. Those gifts ranged from telepathy to animal shifting to teleporting. In this society, the gifted people were called Others and have been reviled by the government as something to be feared and condemned. The government gathered up the Others and imprisoned them in labs for testing. Most of the Others have died.
WS (Western States):
The Western States...those on the western side of the Veil to the Mississippi River. Beyond what used to be the Mississippi River is now just ocean.
On this side, there were only children left to make their way in the world. The oldest survivor was Bethany Harris. She took control by default and is now the leader of the WS society which functions on a much more environmental and earth friendly doctrine.
Everyone in the WS evolved...they all developed telepathy and wings. A few of them have other gifts as well...such as healing, communication with animals, and manipulating matter.
Allied in Flight Story Description:
A rescue gone wrong.
It was supposed to be simple. Four members from the Western States planned to sneak into the Eastern States to free four condemned Others. But when they arrived at the experimental labs where the Others were being held, it was under attack from Rebel forces.
Griff Hughes had one job...
He had to find Shar, a wounded hawk shifter. But in the ensuing chaos, he became a captive instead of a rescuer. Three days later he awakens in his own cage, alone. But during the nights, he’s not alone. An alluring redhead with a siren’s call visits his dreams, and his resistance is breaking down.
Shar McIntire is just trying to survive.
After three years in captivity, Shar has one goal...keep her and her sister alive. To do so means cooperating with the evil doctors who want her to seduce and manipulate Griff. She likes and is drawn to the man with the strange chocolate wings, but she can’t let that attraction distract her. Her sister’s fate is in her hands.
In the last eighteen years, life hasn’t been easy for anyone.
The WS and the ES have been separate entities, but once the Veil was crossed, things began to evolve. It’s a new world, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to get easier anytime soon.
Book #2 in the Through the Veil series.
