Highlander meets Twilight with a dash of Fifty Shades of Grey in this vampire romantasy…

Caelin MacGregor is an ancient king with a new love
Ages ago, I ruled a clan of vampire raiders. We were allies to the Vikings and enemies of the Rus. That life ended when the bloodkin plague wiped out all our women, including my beloved vampire bride, Elisava. A thousand years have passed. My heart remains empty. Then I see a human woman named Lexa. For the first time in ages, I feel true desire, respect and love. Could Lexa actually be a lost bloodkin lady … or is she a horrible trick from Pyri, the ancient fire goddess of the Rus raiders?

Lexa Uznetsov has a plan
To save my sister, Sash, I took on my father’s debt to Konstantin the Rus, leader of the New York Bratva. As a result, my life became a never-ending (and incredibly illegal) stakeout for the mob. After years of scheming, I’ve finally come up with a solid escape plan: find all three pieces of the infamous Veil Pendant. Once I reassemble this magical item, I’ll have the power to cure my sister … as well as the ability to say buh-bye to Konstantin. Sure, legends warn that reforming the Veil Pendant may bring about some nastiness called Pyri’s doomsday. Yet if it saves Sash, I’m willing to risk anything.


“Veils and Vampires is amazing! It has action and adventure and a little spicy. Enough that it makes you drool and want more. Honestly a totally different take on modern day vampire soulmates. I devoured this book in one sitting.” – Teresa, Goodreads

4 stars!

The satisfying continuation of the Vampires of the Daemonverse series! 

Veils and Vampires is the much-anticipated sequel to Violins and Vampires and is the second book in author Cee Bee’s suspenseful adult paranormal romance series, Vampires of the Daemonverse. The story is a fantastic continuation of King Caelin’s and Princess Alexa’s relationship begun in the previous book, so these should be read in order for the best understanding and enjoyment. 

Told from the dual points of view of Lexa and Caelin, the chapters are well-defined, and the voices of the two characters are distinct enough to avoid any confusion as to who is talking. Lexa is an even stronger character in this outing than the first, and that is saying something. She definitely takes control even as Caelin does his best to intervene as her protector. I really liked how events were told from both viewpoints, one after the other, as the narrative shifted from Lexa to Caelin and back. 

The plot goes back to Alexa’s and Sasha’s childhood and the pivotal events leading to their separation from their real mother, identifying Anya’s introduction into their history. At the same time, readers learn more about the trusty and loyal Hunter, his mate, Fifeur’s fate, and her prophecy, which points everyone’s attention toward the veil pendant. The inevitable face-off between Lexa and Pyri is a definite showstopper! However, the pace of the book’s early chapters set in the present felt a little slow to me. The characters initially appear aimless and stuck, especially Lexa and Sasha. The pace does quicken, though, and the reasons and need for action become apparent later. 

With characters that fairly ooze sex appeal and a plot that could mean the end of the world, I enjoyed this next installment in the Vampires of the Daemonverse saga. I recommend VEILS AND VAMPIRES to fans of the previous book and the entire series to readers who enjoy suspenseful adult paranormal romances.

Yes! Finally. I so enjoyed the first book in this series.
