Book Blurb:

Life as I knew it ended the day I accepted my fate.

In its place is an existence even the wildest imagination could never fathom. Strange creatures walk among us, plotting our demise, and I’ve come to find that the fate of our world rests squarely on my shoulders. We’re all in danger and I’m trying to figure out how to make it through each day. The key to my survival is a man I can’t figure out. As dangerous as the darkest fae, I have no choice but to work with him to stop the prophecy that’s foretold to be the ruination of mankind. Carrick Byrne continues to be my only source of information, but he doles it out as he sees fit. He intrigues and scares me in equal measure, yet I can’t help but be attracted to him. And the more I discover about him, the more it becomes clear he feels the same. As we travel to Faere in search of answers, we find that every piece of information leads to more questions, that every question leads to a new piece of the puzzle, and that, most importantly, no one can be trusted. The more secrets we uncover, one thing is certain— if we have any chance of saving the world, we have to do it together. A Discovery of Secrets and Fate is book two of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

Review by Trinette Dungee

At the end of book one, Finley was celebrating her twenty-eight birthday with her twin sister Fallon when she witnesses something evil take over the body of her sister. In this second installment, there are more questions than answers and Finley will have to rely on Carrick Byrne more than she ever thought she would. 

Along with Carrick, Zaid, and Titus Finley now has her friends to help her. A tragic event convinced her that she should open up to her friends and tell them the truth about what has been going on in her life. Although knowing her friends are now aware of what her life has become gives her some comfort, it also frightens her as this knowledge could very easily put them in harms way. 

The questions that have surfaced after Fallon’s transformation lead Carrick and Finley to realm of Faere. Here, humans are not the preferred species, but it’s in Faere where she and Carrick hope to gain additional information that will help them understand more about the prophecy and Finley’s part in it by meeting with The Scryer. While in Faere, Finley gains a wealth of information about Carrick; she finally learns what Carrick actually is. What his connection is to The Gods, why he’s actually willing to help her when he clearly dislikes her. Finley meets The Royals, Queen Nimeyah, her daughter Deandra, and her son Pykalias.  It is Nimeyah who must grant them permission to meet with the scryer. 

Finley does get information from the scryer, but once again she has more questions than answers. She is still unsure of her part in the prophecy, she learns something disturbing about her birth and her sister, she learns that defeating the prophecy will come at a great price (what that price is, she doesn’t know), and she realizes that her feelings for Carrick are starting to shift and that his feelings for her are not what she thought they were.  

During the first book and during most of this book, I was so engrossed in what was going on with Finley that the thought of a romance with Carrick didn’t seem like a priority. It wouldn’t have bothered me one bit if nothing ever happened between the two of them. I mean ultimately, I know that’s where things are going but it didn’t really matter. Until they reached Faere; for some reason Carrick didn’t actually become a real man to me until then. There were times when Finley described his physical appearance and of course I’m thinking “totally hot and sexy guy”, but totally hot and sexy for Finley didn’t happen until Faere; and it wasn’t just because Deandra was hot for him. I think it was because he never really displayed any sexual qualities until then. Anyway, one can only imagine when these two finally get together…..FIREWORKS!!!

Some things I can’t wait to get the answers to: Are Finley and her family really human? Her dad supposedly suffered from mental illness, the same mental illness everyone assumed Finley suffered from. What if her dad was just trying to protect her from the evils that lurked in the world? Finley and Fallon’s mom died in childbirth was this the act of The Gods? What is the significance of Finley and Fallon’s twenty-eighth birthday? Everything changed on that particular birthday. Why is Finley's POV told in first person, but Carrick's is told in third person? And how do Eliana and Ronan (from book 0.5 The Clash of Yesterday), play into this whole scenario? So, so many questions!!

I am still in awe at how the series is sucking me in! Paranormal/Supernatural has never been my thing but this series right now is giving me life.
