How will one enigmatic woman be able to control her own fate when so many others would choose to use her for personal gain? Veil, by Greg Rucka and Toni Fejzula, is a story shrouded in mystery and corruption that simultaneously displays the good and evil nature of humanity.

I was first introduced to Rucka’s powerful storytelling with Queen and Country, but unfortunately, have not read any of his other works — until now.

What impresses me the most about this book, is the focus that is placed on the morality of humans — what is the true focus of an individual’s heart?
