When Celtic historian, Dr. Madeline Alleyn, abandoned her husband, it was to protect him and her unborn triplet daughters. Now, nearly eighteen years later, her 17 year-old girls are smart, normal, but something has never been right with Madeline. There are compulsions she doesn’t understand and secrets she’s intent on keeping from her daughters, secrets her dead father never fully divulged, secrets her mysterious mother took to the grave giving her birth.
Now, the people Madeline is hiding from have discovered a way to unite the clans. They seek her mother’s archeological find, ten stone tablets with a story to tell of the existence of the Community, the secret origin of Stonehenge, and of quantum sorcery. But the secret community is divided, and the most dangerous among them think the time is ripe for showing themselves to an unsuspecting humanity. They must conquer. The prophecy of Tarkus demands it.
Madeline is desperate to keep her children hidden. She knows the prophecy from the night her husband revealed his true nature to her. But time is running out. Will she be able to find her mother’s hidden artifacts before her enemies discover that her children are the key to world conquest?
"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."
