"She breathes life into her characters and makes them come alive with every page"

Welcome back to Necropolis and the Otherworld crime unit. At the start of this third book, we find Lyra Magice in France meeting up with the very man she fled from five years ago, tall gorgeous dhampir Theron LeNoir. When she is around him she feels things and entertains thoughts that make her question herself and her beliefs.

Theron possesses an ancient book that may help the OCU solve the series of murders that have been plaguing Necropolis. Lyra does the unthinkable and puts a spell on Theron, steals his book and takes it back to Necropolis. Lyra does not tell Cain (her boss) all the details as to how she came to possess the book but within hours the truth comes to light when Theron shows up.

When another body is found, Lyra and Theron are forced to work together and decipher the symbols before another murder occurs. Will Lyra and Theron be able to resist their undeniable attraction for one another? What will it take for the OCU team to figure out who is behind these demonic acts before the unspeakable happens? Will Theron be able to convince Lyra to accept him and his dark secret before time has run out?

Vivi Anna just gets better and better! I loved the first book, the second was awesome and the third book I just couldn't put down. She breathes life into her characters and makes them come alive with every page I read. I love being able to revisit old characters and see how they are progressing. In Veiled Truth we find out who is behind all of the heinous crimes in each of the stories; I hope this does not mean the end for the OCU. If you have not read books one and two I do not recommend reading this book, but I do recommend you getting all three.

**A PNR Reviewer Top Pick**

Five years ago, virginal Lyra Magice had fled powerful dhampir Theron LeNoir's advances. But now an ancient text the dhampir possesses holds the key to solving murders that have plagued Necropolis. When another body is found and evidence points to the Mistress of the city, duty dictates that Lyra work with Theron—a man she regards as haughty, arrogant and immoral—to translate the symbols left at the crime scenes. But with their forced alliance comes darkly sensual dreams that leave her feeling wanton and achy...

Unwilling to reveal his dark past, the dhampir soon discovers that Lyra—a witch of great power—is to be the sacrificial virgin in a demonic scheme to open a portal to hell itself. Salvation will come only if Theron can win Lyra's trust—and her heart.
