The Veil Trilogy/ Accolades



So, on my quest for why, I had a few books published by the incomparable Spencer Hill Press. And since I don't like tooting my own horn, here's some toots from other people:

"Oh. My. Gosh. I think I am an official fan-girl of the Veil trilogy, this book was brilliant. Daniel Cohen had such an amazing way of describing Atlas Crown and all of its strange and magical features that I instantly fell in love... This Book was brilliant, creative, and completely magical. If you want an amazing book to read in 2012, I would suggest you go to the bookstore and pick up a copy of Masters of the Veil."

-Julia @ Inkbitten

"Daniel Cohen has an incredible imagination. Masters of the Veil was literally busting at the seams with fantasy. It was coming out of my nose, dripping from the pages, and staining my fingers... Boys, girls - it doesn’t matter. Fantasy lover or not, I'm confidence this book will appeal to all!"

-Shana @ Sizzling Reads

"Masters of the Veil is a fun, fresh fantasy that delivers an intriguing story and fantastic world-building, and is a great first volume in what is sure to be an excellent trilogy."

-Aeicha @ Word Spelunking

"It's not often I read a book that I have to put down because it gets too real for me. The embarrassment, the annoyance and frustrations, everything Sam Lock felt, I felt right along with him. And not just Sam, but each and every one of Dan Cohen's characters.

So if you like well thought out plots, complex characters, high stakes, and writing that makes you feel you've just entered another world (so much so, you lose track of time), then this book is for you."

-Emily White, Author of ELEMENTAL

"Masters of the Veil was a great start to a new series. I loved the magical world the author had created, and was fascinated by the different branches of magic and how each person was suited to a different type. Definitely a page-turning read – I’m already excited for the sequel!"

-Liz @ Planet Print

"Sam Lock is a wonderful mix of confused teen and stalwart hero. His first days exploring this magical world are as rich as any fantasy book I’ve read. Sam not only learns about his magical abilities, but he also starts to learn about his own strengths and weakness."

-Darby Karchut, Author of GRIFFIN RISING and GRIFFIN'S FIRE

"I absolutely adored Masters of the Veil. It is a unique and creative read in today's sometimes overwhelming YA market. Daniel is taking JK Rowling's lead and putting a whole new twist on fantasy."

-Kristin @ Better Read Than Dead

"Masters of the Veil is filled with life and magic. This great sorcery tale of unknown magic is good for anyone who seeks a good thrill."

-Savannah @ Books With Bite

"I loved this book. I could list all the reasons, but there is one piece of praise I think sums up the book best. My son grabbed it as soon as I was finished reading it and hasn't put it down since. Dan Cohen has a winner with this series. 

Move over Harry Potter, there's a new kid on the block and 

he's wicked cool."

-Michelle Pickett, Author of the upcoming PODS 

"The world-building and lore of this story are absolutely first-class. The setting, objects and characters all have roots in familiar tales, but are presented in a fresh, original way. I am very much looking forward to the next volume, as I am betting that the author has a lot of creations ready to go that just wouldn't fit into the first book, and I can't wait to see what else he's come up with. It is really nice to read a YA offering that is not a re-tread of the same formula we've all read twenty times."

-Paula @ Reading Lark

"Mr. Cohen has done a spectacular job on Masters of the Veil and I look forward to what comes next!"
