The Veil of Corruption, C.B. Lyall

After being thrust into a long-standing conflict between the witches and wizards that has destabilized the Magical Realm and finding the antidote for the Virus of Beauty, Wilf would like to return to his normal soccer playing teenage life. But he can’t rest until his stepsister, Myra, is caught and brought to justice.

It’s been three days since Myra took to the skies above Hong Kong and disappeared. Now Wilf is accused of corrupting the Veil, a defensive barrier between the witch and wizard cities. As the spell expands throughout the magical realm it is attacking witches and wizards.

But Wilf would rather embrace his witch friend, Katryna, than his wizard powers. When evil forces have other plans and they kidnap Katryna, Wilf realizes that he’d do anything to save her and the Magical Realm, even if it means risking his own life by connecting to the primary source of all magic.

The Veil of Corruption is quite simply one of the most exciting, incredible, fantasy sequels I have ever had the pleasure of reading! The Veil of Corruption has astounded me; I enjoyed every single moment of the book because it was by far a perfect and incredibly enjoyable read. The wonderful author of the novel, C.B. Lyall is a true literary talent because she managed to captivate and enthrall me from the very beginning with her dramatic twists and turns and phenomenal literature that should not be missed!

The Veil of Corruption is the sensational follow-up novel to The Veil of Beauty and wow, what a phenomenal sequel! The reader in The Veil of Corruption will once again be reunited with the protagonist of the first book, Wilf Gilvary, a young wizard who in The Veil of Beauty embarked on a dangerous mission where he explores his heritage. As this is book two I don’t want to spoil what happens! So here is a snippet from my first review of The Veil of Beauty which sets up the story for you!

“The Virus of Beauty is an exceptional tale that will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the novel, Wilf Gilvary, a teenage wizard who is reluctant to explore his heritage. However, after the vanishing of his father and a spellbound journal he inherits from him, he is forced to explore his heritage and powers more. The reader will follow Wilf as he embarks on this coming of age tale where he learns more about himself, his powers, his heritage, and more of a terrifying virus that is sweeping the globe and hurting those he loves most”

Now how wonderful does The Virus of Beauty sound?! In The Veil of Corruption, the reader will continue the adventures from the first book and the result is a thrilling novel that shouldn’t be missed. The story of The Veil of Corruption is a sensational one because it encompasses everything good about literature. It has an outlandish, brave plot, enthralling characters, and an incredibly well thought out backstory that will keep the reader wanting to read for hours on end!

C.B. Lyall is a talented author; there is no question about this. Lyall’s writing keeps the reader on the edge of their seat; her suspense-filled book reminds me of Alfred Hitchcock’s movies; there is a constant feeling of trepidation and a continuous sense of “what is going to happen next?!” as I read this book. I was enthralled because this is how fantasy books should be! C.B. Lyall is not only a brilliant writer for her ability to captivate the reader’s attention straight away, but she is also an excellent author for her ability to lace exceptional twists and turns throughout her story that genuinely had me shocked at points!

The combination of Lyall’s shocking twists and her explanatory powers will immerse the reader in the story and make them be able to visualize every detail, no matter how small. This writing approach is one of my favorites because it makes the reader feel included in the story and makes the reader feel as if they are in the same situation as the protagonist of the novel.

To conclude my thoughts on the brilliant piece of literature that is The Veil of Corruption; I would say if you are looking for a fantasy adventure that is unlike anything you have read… a read that will keep you entertained for hours on end as well as enthrall you then this incredible book is for you! The Veil of Corruption five stars from me!
