2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Reeve of Veils (Inheritance #4) Amelia Faulkner

1) A deftly spun narrative weaving together threads of addiction, control, trust, and cycles of abuse, Reeve of Veils fits into the tapestry of the Inheritance universe while revealing the gnarled threads on the reverse side, a real shock for anyone who's read Knight of Flames. One of the only portrayals of an aromantic main character in an M/M love story, and a hard look at the grey morals that creep into life as an isolated psychic. When I was asked to review book 4 in this series for The Rainbow Awards I decided to treat myself to reading the first 3 back-to-back. I had read another series by this author but not this one, I expected good things. I was not disappointed. For me, this author's writing style and use of vocabulary is a great treat. Throughout the series, each chapter and page stands alone offering something to enjoy whether it be thought-provoking, funny, insightful, or just elegantly written prose. She's excellent at making the reader feel what the characters feel. Thoroughly recommended!

Vengeful. Telepath. Mastermind.
Frederick d'Arcy is determined to uncover the truth of his mother's untimely death, so when he finally locates his missing brother Quentin - the only potential witness - he drops everything and travels to San Diego, but Quentin is embroiled in a different mystery, and Frederick finds himself sucked into a world more dangerous than he likes.
Dealer. Loser. Pessimist.
Mikey Brennan is an absentee in his own life. He always thought dealing in whatever his customers wanted to buy would make him a rich man, but instead he's working real hard just to stay still. When he's kidnapped by a hot British guy who only sees him as a plaything, Mikey must choose whether that's better than going back to his own miserable existence.
Divided we stand.
With Kane Wilson threatening to out psychics across the city and endangering anyone who gets close, a deadly game of cat and mouse plays out as Frederick manipulates events toward the retribution he seeks. But in plucking Mikey off the street, he may just have found something better than revenge.
Maybe even something worth fighting for...
Reeve of Veils is the fourth book in the Rainbow Award winning Inheritance series and contains mature themes and events which may be distressing to some readers. It has a medium heat rating and a cliffhanger ending.
