I recently got to read “Master of the Veil” by Daniel Cohen. While it’s not my USUAL chosen genre (Vampire Porn, according to my honey), I still like reading about anything paranormal and magic & such! I really did enjoy it. I’m even gonna pass it on to Tristan soon. It would be a great book for him, I think.
Turns out, I’m a “Flathand” and I sure wish I weren’t! I wish I could use the Veil like Sam does. The veil? Yes. It’s what the people of Atlas Crown use to make their magic. Sam was just an ordinary teenager…a promising football player until his “hiccup”. He meets so many creatures and interesting people along his journey.
Daniel Cohen did an amazing job painting the picture of Atlas Crown in my head. I felt like I was there with Sam and May. You HAVE to read this book. Such a unique turn on the derision and use of magic. I can’t wait for the next book in the trilogy!
Life can’t get much better for Sam Lock. Popular, good-looking, and with a future as a professional football player. every guy at Stanton High School wishes he were Sam. That is, until his championship football game, when Sam accidentally links with an ancient source of energy known as the Veil and reveals his potential to become a powerful sorcerer.Sam is whisked off to Atlas Crown, a community of sorcerers who utilize the Veil as a part of everyday life. Once there, he trains beside a mute boy who speaks through music, an eternal sage who’s the eyes and ears of the Veil, and a beautiful girl who’s pretty sure Sam’s an idiot.As it becomes clear Sam’s meant for power magic-the most feared and misunderstood form of sorcery-people beyond Atlas Crown learn of his dangerous potential. An exiled group of power sorcerers are eager to recruit Sam, believing that he is destined to help them achieve their long-held goal. If they succeed, they could bring about the downfall of not only Atlas Crown. But all humankind.

“Oh. My. Gosh. I think I am an official fan-girl of the Veil trilogy, this book was brilliant. Daniel Cohen had such an amazing way of describing Atlas Crown and all of its strange and magical features that I instantly fell in love… This Book was brilliant, creative, and completely magical.
