Amy McNulty Sorry I didn't see this question earlier! It's from Noll's POV and the third book in the series will be entirely from her POV as well.

I'm sorry it's been slow to get to other countries besides the U.S. and Canada. It is available on Kindle there. I'm not sure why it's not yet on Kobo.

With NOBODY'S GODDESS, it took an extra couple of months before the book appeared in other Amazon stores around the globe. I hope it will eventually be available everywhere! But yes, it is currently available at The Book Depository, which offers free worldwide shipping.(less)

I just love this series! I didn't think that book 2 could supersede the enjoyment I got from Nobody's Goddess, but it did!!!

From the cover alone, you can tell that Noll has changed since we saw her last and this is backed up by the very first chapter! Chapter one opens with Noll basically telling us, that she's realized where she went wrong, and she's trying to be different, better. She's very reflective this time around and almost tentative, trying to suppress her wild fire nature, the very one

I cannot do this anymore. I cannot handle books of this intensity. It was worse than a long volleyball rally.

After reading the first book, and being thoroughly confused, I was ready for this one to be confusing (but ridiculously amazing) as well. The confusion level was practically non existent. The suspense and plot twists? Far superior in this book than confusion (you'll have to read my review for Nobody's Goddess to understand what I mean by confusion) in the first book. My mind was blown in

I really enjoyed this one, more than Nobody's Goddess, actually. I felt like the characters were really well done and the plot progressed in a natural way without it feeling like second book syndrome. I liked that it had it's own plot arc while still adding in elements to further the story and make me want to continue on living in Noll's worl

There used to be a curse on Noll's village that only allowed each man to love one woman for his entire life, and each woman to have freedom of choice. But since this curse was broken, giving the men freedom to choose their loves also for the first time in a thousand years, unexpected havoc has ensued. The men are tired of serving the women, and many leave their wives and families, sending the village's former balan

You guys. If you haven't read Nobody's Goddess yet, you need to do that ASAP. Nobody's Lady was such a great sequel, and it was pretty much everything I was hoping for! There are still lots of twists and turns, and I still have so many questions about this world, but in a good way! Nobody's Lady picks up pretty much where Nobody's Go

I love Amy McNulty's writing this far and still do. She takes you on this great journey which I absolutely love. I were lucky enough to get my copy really fast (like, I called everyone in my district here in Norway because I wanted it and one store had it!)

Wow, I don't know what to think after I've finished this book. The first one I was able to devour in a few hours, and I was desperate for the next installment. I finished this one in two days, and I was still pleased despite some of my reservations. I still have a lot of questions, and it's going to be a long time until the next book. Perhaps I'll end up driving myself insane waiting.

This book was given to me by the Author In Exchange For an Honest Review.

Brilliant Story! Amy is a tremendously talented writer, which was evident with the first book Nobody's Goddess, but this one just stole my heart! I so loved it! The conflict of the first book is carried on into this story and elaborated on, in the first story we see her struggle to maintain order in a world of goddesses and the men who worship them, where in this one we see her struggle in a world of disillusionment and hea

I received an advance copy from the author in exchange for am honest review.
And I am being quite honest in saying that I did not enjoy this book as much as Nobody's Goddess.
So the curse is broken, the village is in chaos. Couples have broken up. Some still stay together and some are figuring out their relationships.
The main thing I didn't like about this book is how little Ailil's part is in this book. He's up there in the castle and we don't see him till

Finally, I got a chance to read NOBODY'S LADY, the sequel to Amy McNulty's NOBODY'S GODDESS. It was amazing, as I expected it would be. I can say I loved it even more than book one!!

In NOBODY'S LADY, Noll has to deal with a town of free men. To make matters worse, Aillil has decreed all marriages void, unless both parties ask to be married again. This allows a number of men to walk away from their marriage duties,

At the end of Nobody's Goddess the curse is broken, allowing both men and women of the village to make their own choices when it comes to who they will love. This seems like a happily ever after sort of ending, doesn't it?

Think again.

In Nobody's Lady, the village is in turmoil. Characters we met in the first book are now acting completely different as they deal with their new found freedom. Their marriages are dissolved and, as it turns out, most of the couples who were together in the first bo

I loved this book so.

That being said, it is much darker than book one, where almost everyone was happy because they had no choice otherwise. Now that they have the choice, some people react poorly, to say the least. Suddenly their world can be very cold and cruel.

I loved the progression of the characters and seeing how the men react to their new thought processes. I loved Ailill and Noll, and I am crossing my fingers for a satisfying HEA in book 3.

Read it. Devour it. Love it. Squee.

I enjoyed this book even more than the first book. I didn't particularly care for the ending, but that's not because of bad writing or anything. I just DID NOT want that to happen!!! (You'll see, my friends, you'll see). Overall, I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next one. If I wrote it, I would have changed the pacing a little, but I didn't write it, and it is good as is. I would definitely read this again and I would definitely recommend it to others.

The Story

Noll finally got what she wanted: everyone on her village was free to love whomever their hearts truly desire. The men didn’t live to worship their goddesses anymore and women could see beyond their respective men. However, things aren’t going as Noll expected

I liked this book a LOT more than the first one. The main character is still irritating as all heck but she's changed since the first book and that's a HUGE plus for me.

NOLL or Oliviere as Ailill likes to call her is the main character. She likes to point out the obvious problems in the village and instead of doing something productive about all the problems that were caused with the breaking of the curse, she mainly just sits by and complains for the majority of the book. She wants the men to g

Safe to say I was very much invested in Noll's story after reading Nobody's Goddess. And while I greatly anticipated Nobody's Lady I was also a little worried about where the story would go after all the events of the first book. Those misgivings were done away with as soon as I read the first chapter of Nobody's Lady, I had no idea where Noll's story was headed but I knew Amy would make it one hell of a journey and I was ready to see it through.

In the second installment of the Never Veil series, Noll has changed. She is no longer the same person she was, she feels a lot of remorse over her sister Elfriedge and Jurij. It is clear she still loves Jurij and now that the men are all "divorced" and free to choose the REAL loves of their lives it changes things. Noll has been in love with her sisters chosen one and husband Jurij forever and she knows that Elfriede never has and never will love Jurij the way Noll can. I was so saddened in the ...more

Once upon a time all men were cursed. They could only love one woman, their goddess. The man needed to wear a veil until his goddess would return his love. All the women were worshipped but not all women found their love because they had no choice in men. The only choice they had was whether or not they could love the man who chose one woman as his goddess.

Ever since Noll found out that she was the goddess of the Lord she did everything in her power to turn him away. She found a way to break the

The second installment of the Never Veil series, Nobody's Lady continues that tale of Noll as she faces the changes in her home village after the breaking of the curse that was set upon them. With the curse broken, men are beginning to think for themselves and they want to be free to make all of the choices they were once denied, throwing their world into upheaval.
Nobody's Lady wasn't good or bad. The voice of the narrator was smooth and nice to read, but plot wise the books was very dull and

Nobody's Lady was the stand out book to me so far, but I think I preferred the drama XD

This book focuses more on the aftermath of men longer being subject to the curse of the goddess.

Can you say Divorce Court?

All marriages have been voided, and men are allowed to use their own free will to choose lovers. Past unions are allowed to remarry if they choose, but you know that pesky little detail in book one where Noll's bestie/lover/homie/friend married her sister? XD

It was interesting that men did

Wow. I DEVOURED NOBODY'S LADY and its prequel NOBODY'S GODDESS in, like, two days. (while working a full-time job). And now I can't WAIT for book 3 (NOBODY'S PAWN, January 2017).

You *could* read NOBODY'S LADY without reading NOBODY'S GODDESS, bit I don't recommend it. I think you need to go through that journey with Noll to really get Book 2.

I loved the exploration of the consequences of the happenings in Book 1 (no spoilers--but the description of Book 2 is itself a bit of a spoiler for Book 1

This book was sooo confusing at times, and I had a hard time keeping track of what was going on. And it was kind of weird too... But I still really liked it. Makes perfect sense, right?

With different elements than the first book, it's still an original story that kept me racing through the pages to find out what would happen next. The trials the people have to face while discovering themselves somewhat reminded me of Lord of the Flies. The emotions run pretty high and you can't help but feel sorry for Noll and all the misery she has caused. This is definitely not how I envisioned the story would run after finishing the first book, which is just one of many twists the author th ...more
The interesting story explained freedom of choice, and that the freedom to reason love was meant to be an improvement. The problems that resulted (anxiousness, sadness, and disorder) showed the residual traces of violence that were supposed to have vanished from that society. I hope the next part of the series clarifies and shows some mending.
