Children of the Veil is the second book in the Aisling Chronicles series that picks up right where the story left off in the first book, Through the Veil. The series main character is Elizabeth Tanner who thought she was just a regular broke college student until she finds that there is a whole hidden world that she hadn’t known existed until she found out that her mother was Fae and she herself is half Fae.
Now Elizabeth is determined to find her mother in whatever dimension she’s imprisoned but that must start with facing her estranged father. Finn O’Connell returns to aid Elizabeth in finding her mother as the two face the her mother’s secrets and find themselves still in the middle of the Fae rebellion.
Returning to this world within the Aisling Chronicles as a lot of fun. The series is a very complex adult fantasy read that is highly based on Irish mythology in which that alone gives it a bit of it’s own stand out difference from other fantasy reads.
The world is well thought out and given quite a bit of depth with all the different aspects to it and the action is non stop throughout the books. I would definitely recommend picking up the first book to learn more about the characters and story line before jumping into this second but both books have been quite good fantasy reads that stand out from the crowd with their Irish based twists on the Fae, demons, magic, vampires and all involved.
Overall, a great addition to the Aisling Chronicles series, a complex fantasy series for adults with a bit of language and sexual content.
