      In case you missed it Rowan Casey is a pseudonym for twelve bestselling authors who have come together to write in a shared world The authors involved are Lilith Saintcrow, CJ Lyons, Joseph Nassise, Steven Savile, Annie Bellet, Jon F Merz, Pippa DaCosta, Robert Greenberger, William Meikle, Steve Lockley, Hank Schwaeble, and Nathan Meyer but it was Pippa DaCosta s name that got me excited about the series I ve absolutely loved everything else Pippa has written so I went into this with extremely h [...]

      Action packed and addictive read The sharp writing, intriguing characters and the mystery of Jessie s illusions kept me reading late into the night I loved the concept of a modern Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and have already bought the next book in the series Looking forward to getting to know about the characters and their magical world Great intro to a new series.

    5. Mara says:

      A meh on top of a meh was my first and only reaction It s not a bad book, but it doesn t have anything particularly good either.Lots of potential that went nowhere which really is a pity If you want to start a new multiauthor series it might have been better to ask the stronger one to write the first book You know, so you can hook some readers inThis novelette had so many problematic nits It never showed its potential It sets some expectation that went nowhere It s too short and basically a fill [...]

    6. Laura says:

      A whole new take on Arthurian legend, set in modern day Los Angeles, kicks off with a female drug addict, former MMA fighter who suffers from hallucinations Not a particularly auspicious beginning, which is part of what makes this book so good The story is supposed to be about Arthurian knights, right So what s the deal with this washed up, heroin shooting, but still undeniably kick ass, has been, Jessie Noble Most of the book focuses on introducing Jessie and developing her character as a drive [...]

    7. Robert Greenberger says:

      While I may be one the legion that is contributing to this series, I had nothing to do with the first volume Rowan Casey brings us into the world of a down and out MMA fighter, Jessie Noble, and through her we are taken into a world on the brink of disaster Like her, our incredulousness is torn away as reality insists on being heard Dante Grimm, her benefactor and savior, has assembled a motley assemblage to save the world The first few volumes are coming out at lightning speed so readers are in [...]

    8. Edeena Cross says:

      A fast and gripping read Let s face it, Arthurian remakes abound so I admit to being sceptical as I picked this up I was pleasantly surprised with the character development, and the fact that whilst the original Knight was a male, in this incarnation she was a woman with flaws and troubles of her own fascinated me The end came too soon, and I can t wait for the next instalment of this tale

    9. Jenniferk says:

      Good start to the seriesLooking forward to the next installment to come A bit short, but engaging enough W ok th background and exposition it could be a very good series It is a unique idea so far

    10. Sharon says:

      WowThis is a didn t want to put down story Action packed with shady characters and likeable characters A female kickboxer with a 9 to 0 record and a mage that may have ties to merlin I am looking forward to their next adventure.

    11. Auriane says:

      Well, that was refreshing No romance, but a really cool protagonist and a new version of the 12 knights of the round table.But it isn t just to reduce the story to the 12 knights It s in fact a story about a woman who had an unfortunate event that destroyed her whole career and which resulted in a quick path to the bottom, including drugs Note a career in MMA fighting Which is why there are many exciting fight scenes Sometimes but at the end with hints what is about to come in the series with [...]

    12. Bob says:

      Fun readThis was a well written, fun book to read Started it yesterday and finished all but 20 pages the first day Characters are likeable and unique as is the story About to purchase book 2 now.

    13. Ellen says:

      Unexpected gemI wasn t sure if I was going to like this or not but I was pleasantly surprised This has a real good plot, some action, and mystery that it pulled me right into the story I look forward to reading the next book to find out about the knights.

    14. Debbie says:

      Another best sellerGreat book looking forward to the next one in the series Greatly enjoy this type or story Love the characters.

    15. Beverly says:

      This is like a book serial than a series The books are short and being released in quick succession It is being written by several authors under the nom de plume Rowen Casey.I liked it very much The premise of modern day Arthurian knights is not exactly new in urban fantasy, but Veil Knights gives a fresh read on the subject The characters were developed quickly They weren t perfect in their strengths and they had interesting character flaws The pacing was fast and kept me interested For the me [...]

    16. Katrina says:

      While this is an interesting spin on Arthurian legend, considering the creative power behind the pseudonym it came across rather flat is this a case of too many cooks spoiling the broth I am on the fence with this one and it is not a location I enjoy hard surfaces and possibility of splinters in your derri re I will give the next book a chance and see what happens.

    17. Cryogenic Fire says:

      EnjoyableVery enjoyable start to this series and I cannot wait to read what the other authors involved in this collaboration come up with especially Annie Bellet and Pippa DaCosta Definitely recommended.

    18. Gwen Samson says:

      Knights AriseFantastic update on an old story A new Merlin in Dante and his knights No dragons yet but who knows what will happen in the next book Love it

    19. Jim says:

      Great new take on the Arthurian legend a must read for fans of King Arthur

    20. *flora* says:

      A Great Action Packed Start To This Urban Fantasy Series.I really enjoyed this book The writing style was easy to read, the fight scenes felt authentic and had great pace and I loved our main character, Jessie Noble I liked how the story developed and Jessie s journey of discovery felt well paced.As this is the first book of the Veil Knights series, there are lots of questions left unanswered, many characters to get to know and mysteries left to solve, which I expected and understand completely [...]

    21. Nancy says:

      I wouldn t really call this a full book, nor a complete novella like a hook to snag you into the series That said I enjoyed what I read, and it did indeed hook me to try to follow up.The character that was mainly introduced was well built and that as well as what she is getting her self into are the extent of this read There were a couple bloopers in the continuity, ie a character that has Dark hair with bright red streaks, is said to be recognized late because of his light blonde with bright r [...]

    22. Amy Robertson says:

      Almost late for work The this book was announced I thought I d read a chapter or two before work This was so exciting and intriguing that before I knew it I was nearly late to work The characters were developed so fast that I had to keep reading to see how things turned out So excited for the next book

    23. Mrs says:

      ShallowThis story was interesting in its way, but did not engage me or make me want to read The fantasy seemed to be rushed, or not well thought out As others have mentioned, the ending was abrupt I would think an author could write without glaring errors, missing articles like the and a, or using it s instead of its It s clumsy and distracting.

    24. Dan Balsley says:

      Wow This book captures you from the first page and hurtles you down a rollercoaster of action and mystery from the point of view of a most unlikely heroine I couldn t put this down If you are at all interested in urban fantasy, this is a must read.

    25. Dave Andrews says:

      It was a fun read, not bad on character development but the disappointing aspect, extremely too short, it just starts to develop and it s part 2 If it s several writers then can t they at least write content.

    26. Judi says:

      Keeps you entertained Detailed explanation of the story I like it Ready to read another book in the series because I m very curious now.

    27. Michelle Buck says:

      Free book Just a set up so you ll buy the rest Writing ok It didn t grab me so I ll forgo the others

    28. Lee says:

      Very good book

    29. Kelly says:

      I really enjoyed this intro the the Veil Knights world Jessie s life fell apart when she started seeing things right in the middle of the biggest MMA fight of her career Three years on, she s barely surviving as a junkie, doing whatever she can to keep the hallucinations at bay, when magician Dante Grimm offers her a match, and a way out.What Jessie didn t expect was learning that Dante was REALLY a magician, rather than master of slight of hand, and she s part of his Round Table, necessary to f [...]

    30. Eric Troup says:

      This needs to be a movie I wasn t sure what to expect from this book, having read about it in an author s newsletter It was only 0.99 when initially released, so I figured what did I have to lose Had I known the fun that awaited me, I would have begun reading the book straightaway It s got a breakneck pace, nail biting action, compelling characters, and left me making delighted noises of frustration when I realized I d finished it Thankfully, I already own the second book in this series, which I [...]
