The Veiling continues the Coveted Power series, with Elaria thrust into a contemporary world, oblivious to her true identity. As Lynan battles a demon army, those she has left behind fear the worst for the prophecy’s outcome.
Coveted Power #2
Haunted by strange dreams with familiar faces, her brother and his friend acting erratically, and now facing into exams she’s sure she’s about to fail, Elaria fears for her splintering sanity. But even more disturbing, is the sense she’s lost something—or someone. And no matter how hard she searches, it remains out of sight.
When you can’t trust yourself, how can you trust another?
Elaria’s sanity has fractured. Haunted by strange dreams stirring a nameless longing, confusion and frustration mount. She can’t explain why her brother and his friend shadow her every move, or why she’s suddenly failing classes, but lately, no-one deserves her trust.
A realm away, Lorcan’s demon army wreaks havoc in Lynan. Trapped within the castle, Rhyan and Solomon battle for their lives. With Elaria’s plight unknown, Solomon fears the worst for the prophecy’s outcome.
The veiling may hide evil’s prey, but magick can’t constrain such immense power. As sanity and kingdom teeter, the darkest secret yet is exposed, and with it, the greatest challenge Elaria will ever face.
The Veiling continues the Coveted Power series, an epic coming-of-age fantasy, where sorcery, treachery, and love straddle medieval and contemporary worlds.

Reviews for The Veiling
The clever device of fish out of water works beautifully here. Especially when our confused heroine begins to experience flashbacks of her true life and wonders whether she's going mad.
Middle books in a trilogy are always tricky to pull off, but the author manages it masterfully in The Veiling. I am very keen to see where the story goes in book three.
Embleton will have you on the edge of your seat, wondering how this is all going to turn out. I only have one question - when is book three coming out? I can't wait!
I adored The Dawning and this sequel was equally as wonderful, pages turning ever faster as it relentlessly headed towards the reveal, delivering some jaw-dropping twists along the way.
Embleton is a talented writer with the outstanding ability to tell a story through characters that camp out in your heart for months afterwards. The next book, The Claiming, is due this year and I'll be first in line. Easily 5 stars.
I really enjoyed this book, the punchy and immediate start caught my interest straight away, and the plot which very successfully blended sorcery with modern-day Earth was refreshing and intriguing. There were some humorous moments, where Elaria tries to assimilate into the life of a modern teenager, and some poignant ones as her memories occasionally bleed through and she is achingly aware that something is wrong, that she is missing important parts of her life.
The writing is well-paced and nicely balanced. This author is generous with her characters, giving even minor ones meaty lines and three-dimensional personalities.
