Born of the Veil by Cheryllynn Dyess tells the story of Tara, a young woman with the ability to see the dead. She was born with the gift, along with a few others, and has learned to live with seeing dead people. Her mother and friend are the only ones who know about it. Then Tara meets a man who reveals a secret to her. She is immortal and a member of a secret society called The Veil. Tara must learn to use her gifts for the good of others and find her place in the world. In an imaginative story with some great characters, Tara is a strong young woman caught in the world of the paranormal. The other characters seem fresh and unique too.
Cheryllynn Dyess has written an enjoyable book with Born of the Veil. While being able to see dead people is a plot that has been used before, I think it is still something that people want to read about. Tara is a compassionate character which I think makes readers like her. I thought it had a good start and that the story flowed well, although Tara's way of speaking was a little stilted. She didn't sound much like a teenager, but I still enjoyed the story. I loved the book cover too. I think this book will do well on the market and that the author has a solid future in writing. I would definitely recommend this book to other readers.
