Donata Santorini is stunned when her former lover,
Magnus, appears on her doorstep asking for help. Magnus
is an Ulfhednar. He has been under going training to
learn to control his inner self. When he left to
return to his family, he cut all ties with Donata.
Donata has been living with her own issues. Her lovers
Peter and Magnus disappeared from her life abruptly.
Then she is being courted by a mysterious business man.
The business man is not what he appears to be and is
trying coerce Donata into providing something she doesn't
want to give. Reluctant as she is to upend her life
further, she doesn't feel that she can turn Magnus down.
Magnus takes her to his hometown in Maine where his clan
lives. Many of the people in the Ulf training are seeing
ghosts, which is causing injuries. He also hopes she can
convince Odin to return to his people. Donata's unique
abilities to speak with ghosts and her ability to speak
with gods will both be needed.
My first introduction to Deborah Blake was one of her
Baba Yaga books. She is a master storyteller who is able
to combine fantasy seamlessly with reality. Her books
have the ability to transport the reader to a world
populated with gods, goddesses, and all manner of unique
races. I love Ms. Blake's stories. The books are intense,
but manage to maintain a level of levity which enhances
the experience. The characters are well-rounded and
interesting. The magical elements are blended in with
such deftness that the world is a pleasure to visit.
VEILED ENCHANTMENTS was so fascinating that I went back and
the first two in the Veiled
In this exciting novel in the Veiled Magic series, Witch
and police officer Donata Santori travels to Maine to help
solve a deadly mystery, where her magical abilities are
tested like never before.
Still reeling from her unwitting involvement in murder and
subsequent break up with a half-Dragon art forger, Witch-cop
Donata Santori is grateful for the distraction when her
ex-lover requests her help. Not only are Magnus's beloved
dead suddenly haunting the Ulfhednar shapechangers in his
tiny rural hometown in Maine, their patron god Odin has
turned his back on them, and the members of their once
tight-knit enclave are at each other's throats. Literally.
Magnus is relying on Donata's experience in dealing with the
gods, along with her magical ability to summon the dead, to
help him unravel this mystery in time to save his clan.
Donata only hopes to survive the ordeal so she can return
home to the city and her quiet job at the precinct.
But first, she must discover who or what is behind the
terrible attacks on the Ulfhednar. And the clock is ticking,
in more ways than one...
