Synopsis:

When Cassie agrees to go on a date with her gorgeous new neighbor, she doesn’t expect the night to end with a glimpse into eternity. Within twenty-four hours she discovers not only are young women being brutally murdered around her beloved town, but an ancient evil is using her new neighbor like a puppet to do the killing. Knowing the police won’t believe her without solid proof, she makes it her mission to find the evidence they need. Add to that how her cat has started talking to her, along with seeing ghosts around town, and it’s no surprise that she’s beginning to question her sanity.

This is the first book in the New Sight Series - paranormal series about a young woman whose eyes are opened to the hidden world around her and her compulsion to help the dead seek answers and justice.

Imaginatively entertaining with light humor and a quickening pace, C. L. Clark’s interesting new twist on paranormal fantasy is a book series that readers will not want to pass up.

My rating: ★★★★☆

Opening the Veil had a very intriguing story--I always love a good murder mystery! And this one, it has a supernatural twist to it... YES! It kept me hooked from page one!

I really loved the mythos in this book--I found the idea of cats protecting humans very interesting. I really liked it! It was all very intriguing and I very much enjoyed reading about this whole other world Cassie had no idea about until her cat, Allie, started freaking TALKING TO HER! And while a bit was explained, we didn’t go into it with extreme detail. I could’ve done with a bit more clarification, but I trust we will get more info on this new world in future books.

As for the characters, they were great! I loved Cassie! She’s so feisty and sarcastic and was just so much fun to follow! Oh and don’t get me started on Allie... I adored her! She was the cutest, most sarcastic, adorable cat EVER! She was definitely one of my favorite parts about the book!

Overall, Opening the Veil had a great story and characters, was well written, and a setting I very much enjoyed being in. I am really looking forward to reading the next book in the series!
