GENRE: YOUNG ADULT FICTION
Leo Kane: Journey through the Veil tells the story of Leo, a seemingly average boy who is transported through a Veil that hides our world from a world of magic and mystery. Upon his arrival to the new and mysterious world, Leo is greeted by the realm’s ruler, as well as, the beautiful—but misunderstood—Angel Dianna. Leo discovers that he comes from a long line of ancient and magical Jinn, the Knights of Kane, with ancestors who still rule other known realms with an iron fist. Leo learns that Theiler, his uncle and ruler of the Carved Realm, is determined to conquer all realms beyond his own—starting with Leo’s new home, the Spring Crow Realm. Leo and Angel must learn to trust each other and team up to stop Theiler’s advances, all the while Leo learns to control magical powers he never knew he had.
It’s been a long time since I have read a book like this. This book is jam -packed with magic, mystery, action and ADVENTURE. It can be a little over -bearing at times due to the intense world -building, which you don’t normally encounter in young -adult novels. But trust me when I say that this book will not disappoint you.
I didn’t realize that this book was just the first in the series…and now I have to endure the long wait. I can’t wait to read the next one!!
One of the best things about this story; about Michael’s writing style is the way he details and describes everything. It’s like the world is coming alive in front of you. Starting from little dragons to magical libraries to familial rivalry….this book will get you hooked from the very first page.
For some weird reason, this book made me feel extremely nostalgic. I felt like my twelve -year old self reading Percy Jackson books. This is a great book for young -adult readers who wish to start new -adult books.
The vivid descriptions of the realm and the backstory of each and every charater, the minute details of battle…..will make you feel that YOU ARE A PART OF THE STORY.
I was hesitant to pick up this book, because it had been a long time since I had read a book like this…..but I am glad that I finally picked it up. The prologue itself will pull you right into the story.
I was not disappointed.
