This is the 2nd book in the Indigo Court series. I got a copy of this to review through the Goodreads First Reads program. I really did not like the first book, Night Myst, but by the time I had read that book I already obtained this review copy. So, I thought “maybe the series will get better” and went ahead and tried to read it. I just couldn’t finish it, I got maybe 100 pages in and it was just so awful.

In the first book Cecily discovered that she is one of the Fey who can shift shape. In thi

Hmmmm ... not the greatest read. Picked it up as a guilty pleasure, and ending up feeling more of the former than the latter. I can't go so far as to say "no redeeming qualities," but the relationship between the main character and her men is pretty unpleasant. And I do mean all the men. The vamps, the ubervamps, the shifters, and those that house demons. For what is sold as a kick-ass heroine, we see her emotionally and physically smacked around a lot. And in the end, she is still pining after ...more

The reason I picked up book one in the Indigo Court series was because the cover completely jumped out at me and as I was reading thorough the book I could picture Cicely being exactly like the cover portrayed her.

NIGHT VEIL starts just after NIGHT MYST ends. Grieve is pretty much a prisoner and under the control of Myst. Cicely is adjusting to all the things she learned about herself in book one and preparing for battle against Myst. Cicely in

I love the Otherworld series, but this one lacks a certain richness and buy-in from me, though I'm enjoying it well enough to continue. The elements that I particularly like - the queerness, polyamory are also not present here and I miss them. Right now the story seems to small - or too large, but doesn't quite work for me that only this one group seem to be noticing anything... I also spend a lot of time thinking that Cicely and Grieve are just a bit too overdone, I don't find them believable m ...more

Yasmine Galenorn’s Indigo Court series is addictive and the latest addition to the saga is no exception. Night Veil is a mystical and captivating read and the author’s creativity shines through.

Night Veil picks back up where Night Myst left off. The whole gang is back and preparing for their battle with Myst, the Queen of the Indigo Court and the vampiric fae. This time around more than just the Queen stands in their way and they face more dangers than before.

Sloppy writing! Freaking 3 pages ago you talk about the chick wearing pants and now her legs are showing from the slit in her skirt? Sloppy, people, sloppy. Especially for a fully priced $7.99 Kindle book.

I am done with this book. I have absolutely no interest in this character or her 'voice'. IMO, there was no emotion to her. The entire book felt like the inner voice that was used just listed off a series of things she was doing. This-happened-and-I-was-scared. THere didn't seem to be any expan

Night Veil picks up where the cliffhanger in the first book in the series left off. After returning to her hometown to find much has changed, Cicely Waters has also learned a lot about herself and what her true powers are. She always knew that she was a magic-born witch, but now she knows she's part Fae as well. And it's a good thing she's realizing her new abilities, because her long-ago love, Grieve, has been taken prisoner
Shifting fae, Cecily, is a busy girl. She's still learning the depth of her powers and how to master them. Clueless Cecily is both super smart and dumb as a post depending on the page as she leads her intrepid team. Her boyfriend, Grieve, is still a captive of her enemy, Myst, who hasn't stopped sending minions to test the barriers of Indigo Court.

It's all Cecily and her cadre of helpers can do to keep Myst's minions at bay while the minions overrun the town, attack warded areas for weak points

What I Loved

At the beginning of the book I had my character likes and dislikes and I was hoping a particular character would be killed. By the end of the book there was so many crazy betrayals, uncovered plots and hidden secret agendas that my character likes and dislikes changed. I'm still reeling from all the stuff that happened on every page of the book.

Ha, I knew Lannan couldn't have been that bad and that sadistic!
But I digress.

Although Sisters of The Otherworld is still my favorite series from Yasmine Galenorn, Indigo Court is not far from it. All the trademarks of Yasmine are present - rich fantasy, messy relationships, and dark twisted intrigues.

It took me awhile to get into this book, but once I did I couldn't stop reading.

Night Veil is the second book in Yasmine Galenorn's Indigo Court series and it picked right up where Night Myst left off. The story continues as Cicely is betrayed by people she considered friends, saves Kaylin's life, finds out who her father is, uncovers more about her past life, and loses allies in this action-packed sequel.

Did I mention that it's absolutely amazing? No, this wasn't my favorite book ever, but it was pretty darn awesome! I was left on an emotional roller coaster ride that I al

I enjoyed this book even more then the first. There is a a lot of action, it's faced paced and the storyline flows smoothly.

The same characters that you or hate are back full force.

Cicely is still very much wrapped up in the Vampires game. And offer that sounds to good to be true, is. Those that are bad, may just have a good side and those you think are on Cicely's side aren't. Intrigue abounds as does the love that Cicely and Grieve share, even though it is strained in certain parts. Luckily we
O.k. I loved the first book, and this one is good too,and more like 3 and a half stars. I just had so much trouble with Lannan the vampire who creeps my crap, that I had trouble getting through the first part of the book and at one point I was not sure I WAS going to finish the book. This one is a little grosser with technicolor descriptions that I really didn't need and a few words would have sufficed instead. By the end of the book, I did have a perspective shift about the crap creeper, and I ...more

Imagine an audiobook that has a reader so boring you'd rather listen to politicians' tax-planning. Imagine the same book with naïve plot, moronic Mary Sue "heroine" who ponders on how her friend would be in the sack while the same friend is in trouble, insta-love (they're ancient soul mates..........) and LKH-y sex scenes, abusive rapist vamp and a collection of supes. A collection, which is so vast and ridiculous you'd think someone watched Rocky Horror Picture Show on LSD and thought how to ma ...more

I thought the first book in this series got really bogged down with the world building, I had hoped that this book would be easier to read as the world would be established. But that wasn't the case for me. I read about 12 pages and then put the book down, putzed around the house for a couple hours, picked up another book read a 100 pages, then picked up this one again. After reading another 20 pages things didn't pick up, there were all these people, Cicely kept thinking/whining to herself that ...more

Night Veil was a key book in the Indigo Court series. It sets you up for what's going to happen in the rest of the series. Alliances and enemies have been made. Families are torn apart while some are reunited. This book is definitely interesting to read, and it has captured my attention. If you are looking for something with a little bit of everything, and different, then the Indigo Court Series is a definite must read.
4 stars

Yay!!! Enjoyed this book. Glad that Cicely met her father, Wrath. Wonder what will happen now they're at war. Hope Peyton will be able to meet her father soon. Wonder who Rhiannon's father is. Glad we were able to see who Cicely, Grieve, and Chatter were in their past lives. Also wonder if Rhiannon and Chatter will get together. Can't wait to read Night Seeker!!!

I always start reading these books and not being very involved but by the ending I'm hooked again. I have a bit of a hard time getting drawn into this world but I love the intrigue.

interesting plot and a thorough story, though i still reserve my judgement as to this actually being considered romance.

Felt like I was reading the first book all over again. Nothing too new in the first part of the book. Gave it up becuase it was just repeating everything. Might try again at a later date.

Second in the Indigo Court urban fantasy series revolving around Cicely Waters as she and her friends scramble to protect themselves and the town.

My Take
Small bits of this are evolving into a story starting to resemble Galenorn's Otherworld series in that Cicely is gathering her friends and allies together.

Ooh, this is kind of eerie and weird. I'm getting a very nasty impression of Geoffrey with some questions about Lannan. Then there's Lainule's actions... Yup, spooky enough that I'm starting
I enjoyed the first book, Night Myst. This one I'm more on the fence about.

This book picks up where the first one left off. Again, the character development is pretty well done. We continue to learn more about Cicely's backstory as Cicely does. The rest of the cast, save Heather, all make appearances in this book. Plus we learn who is and meet Cicely's father. That was an interesting development. And the plot is still moving forward to the ultimate showdown with Myst. as

This novel follows Cecily and her friends as they try to fight against the Indigo Court and free Grieve.

The plot was okay but nothing spectacular. There was some action and more spell casting which was good, I always felt that Cecily was a powerless witch, as she does little magic, which was strange. My one major complaint about the plot was how random events or people are introduced just for the sake of the plot. For example, the Consortium was added in the middle of the novel but don’t really

Continuing the story started in Night Myst (you really should start with it), Cicely and her allies, including the Queen of Summer and the shaky alliance with the Crimson Court vampires, continue their fight against Myst, her Shadow Hunters, her Indigo Court and her other minions. Grieve is still in the Indigo Court's power, and Cicely longs to rescue him. First, she and her allies must stay alive! There are betrayals, shifting alliances, unexpected discoveries and violence as the war progresses ...more

The world that Galenorn has built is captivating and the mythology she created for the very foundation of this series is fascinating. Very immersive. The conflicts, politics and intrigue are enthralling.

For you clean-readers: this book DOES have mature content. You'll need to do some self-editing or scene-skipping to read this one.
Well, that was much better than anticipated. Finally, some fun twists and turns. Yay (view spoiler) Now, I just can't stop reading. It's like eating chips. They are not great for you and you can't have just one.
