Review - Demon Veil

Demon Veil
by Grace Hudson

What they say: An ancient evil is unleashed.
Maia Gellman is the house roadie for her uncle’s bar. Life is simple until one horrific night changes her world forever. Alone and terrified, she finds herself on the run from an evil she cannot name. An evil that calls out to the part of her she would rather not face.
Now she is a killer, whether she likes it or not, and she must stay one step ahead of those who wish to destroy her. A meeting with a mysterious stranger finds her in the company of new friends, friends she is determined to keep safe. But the one who stalks her seems to know her, perhaps better than she knows herself. To face him, she must face the truth about who she is, and what she has become.

Pre-order - Coming 27th June

What I say: To say Maia's shift at work takes an unexpected turn is a massive understatement She goes from helping set up bands to being on the run from unknown mystical forces in the blink of an eye. A few pages in and all I could think was that escalated quickly! 

I enjoyed the Almost Famous band road trip meets Supernatural vibes although would have loved more character and story development. It would be nice to see Maia learn more about her history and start to challenge herself in the future.

Maia's survival tactics range from clueless and comical to badass acceptance - this makes more sense when you read it I promise. I wasn't the biggest fan of a certain band member that I'm sure other people will love. I'm not a big fan of lying by omission but I can see the appeal...

The twists are dramatic and fit the plot, so they never feel forced. I enjoyed the drama and pace of Demon Veil and found myself quickly engrossed in Maia's story. I would have liked a longer book as it did seem to end rather rapidly. Perhaps there's another instalment coming soon?!

3.5 Stars in my Sky!
