"You're not invincible, you know. The stories of the Blacks are rife with the gruesome murders of Black Protectors. Why ole Meriodoc Black had his eyelids sliced off and boiling oil fried his living eyeballs right in their sockets. Only then did they tear his entrails out with such precision he lingered for days having to fend off rats and other vermin in their dungeon.” Jones stopped and gave Harry a lingering look. “When Meriodoc fell, another Black rose to the cause. Another Black always follows.” Harry choked down the bile rising from his stomach. “She never explained it like that.” “No, she wouldn’t. She didn’t spare you, but describing what she knew of certain unfortunate members of your family would have been excessively cruel.”
"Nothing fascinates me like writing, creating stories, or sub-creating as JRR Tolkien referred to it. And, of course, to write and write well, one must read widely. It started early in my life and continues to this day. But, long before I began writing stories, I was working long hours as a college professor, squeezing in time whenever I could find the time to work my hobby." Read more
"The description of Veiled Memory appealed to me for numerous reasons. I enjoy the topics of Celtic History and folklore. Though I’ve wanted to visit, I’ve never been to the book’s setting, New York – the closest I’ve gotten is North Carolina, and let’s face it, that’s not very close. Having a history of twins on both sides of the family, a tale with triplets fascinated me. And, with murder attempts, psychic abilities, and mysterious ancient rune stones, there was no doubt in my mind that I was in for an exciting, fun read.
I wasn’t disappointed. Best comparison I can come up with is a paranormal National Treasure with a more serious vibe. The action and tension are relentless and the story makes reference to multiple yummy scholarly subjects, including another fav of mine, astronomy.
The author has a deft hand when it comes to pacing and balancing the story’s multiple plot lines. It’s complex, but I never failed to understand what was going on nor did I lose track of who a character was, despite there being quite a few to keep up with.
I heartily recommend this book and eagerly await the next installation."
