4.5 stars.

I really enjoy this series but the poor editing/proofreading continues to frustrate.

Yet another great installment

This installment finds Lexi and her crew in New Orleans dealing with a lot of supernaturals, trying to stay alive and together with her guys. It is more focused in her relationship with the guys. It also broadens her scope of the supernatural community. Lots of action and a lot of development. While it is not a cliffhanger it does end with a lot of unanswered questions. Which just makes me wonder when the next book is coming out. Can’t wait for more!

The Best Book so far! But...

This book ... made me so happy. I’ve been a devoted lover of Lexie and her guys for about a year - and this book gave me everything I could wish for. One of the reasons I’ve been so excited about this series was to see how the “all dating her at once” idea would play out. This is supernatural... but the romance is contemporary... and I wanted to see an author pull that off. So far... it is all super believable. BL created such strong characters and the relationships b

Loved it

Another great book! I have to admit that the first few books of this series were just okay for me. The last one and this one were wonderful though.

With more supernatural action plots happening, Lexie and the guys are definitely getting more intriguing. Miles is my favorite though! Looking forward to the next book. Hopefully won't have to wait for long for the series to release another one.

I can't say I enjoyed this massively.

I only really began enjoying this series in Book 5, as finally the plot seemed to go beyond Lexie hanging out with the guys doing mundane stuff and just drama around their relationships with each other.

There were some answers regarding Lexie's powers, and we met new characters which widened the world further, but I didn't find any of it particularly exciting.

Instead this just felt like relationship progression filler. The boys and Lexie finally admitted their

Witches and Necromancers and Magic, oh my

Claire comes to Lexie with news, there's another living Necromancer and he wants to meet with her. Only issue is he's not in state. Well, Montana, anyways. He's in New Orleans, an area legendary for magic revolving around death. The men in her life are not happy about this drive to go talk, neither her friends nor Rory. Unbelievably, her uncle allows her to make the trip, as young as she is, as long as she takes the guys with her. So, the 6 of them pile o
Lexie and the guys travel to New Orleans to meet with another Necromancer and learn what they can from him. Unfortunately, their arrival comes at a time when the Witch's Council is pressuring all the other supernaturals in the community to join them "or else" and Lexie and the boys get in the middle of the power struggle. In other news, Lexie is also feeling romantic pressure. As the boys individually admit their desire for her, she worries that when they all find out about each other that she w ...more

Wow this book really LEAPed forward in plot! I had previously felt the pacing was a bit slow (not just romantically, but even with Lexie's abilities). This book really cranks it all up. Lexie and the guys travel to NOLA and find out a lot more about necromancy. They also find out a LOT more about vampires, werewolves, and witches. Finally, Lexie tells them she loves them all and has kissed each of them. They do NOT handle it well. However, Miles (the always level headed) talks to Louis about his ...more

this is getting a bad kind of frustrating

End of book six and we still don’t even have one of her harem relationships established. They’ve only just heard of polyandry as an idea and are vehemently against it. This is slower than slow especially with how their relationships have been written so far, they’ve practically been ‘sharing’ this whole time with zero issue ever until now they all want to officially date her. I’m just bored now. Lexie keeps lying and hiding things and then crying when th

This is the first book in the series that didn’t get a five star review. There was a lot going on to further the story line but I really felt like the relationships didn’t get the proper attention. We are at a huge climatic relationship part and I felt like the paranormal aspect overshadowed it. I don’t want to go into spoilers but I felt this book was somewhat lacking.

For the first time in the series Lexie got on my nerves but there was so much stuff happening in this one that it made up for it.

OMG this book is complete awesomeness. Everytime B.L. Brunnemer releases a book it's better than the last. I don't know how this is possible when you don't think something good get any better, then all of a sudden it does. Secrets from the grave is the best book I have read all year. ...more

My friend shared Found and Secrets From the Grave just the other day (26th....decided to reread the series and damn I'm sleepy). I am frustrated and angry and sad and annoyed and I want the next damn book already lmao. I loved the book, it finally upped on the romance with everything coming to a head and people started talking FINALLY!!! I love that this is major slow burn, I mean these are teenagers so we shouldn't be begging Brunnemer to give us more than what has been given...sorry but I don' ...more
For the love of all that is Holy, please release this book!!!! This is like putting chocolate cake in front of a fat kid and telling him, "Yes, it's there, but all you can do is look at it."

Patience is not a virtue, it's a damn torture tactic. *sigh*

The first 75% was 2-3 stars for me but the last 25% was about 4 stars. I’ll still read subsequent books in this series but the majority of this book felt like a filler and completely unnecessary.

Oh Guys this book was awesome!! So worth the wait. So much happens, relationship wise, plot wise, and yes we do get some answers. We also get more questions. I do not want to give anything away, but I will give what I can.

First of all, the relationships. We have some movement, but does it bring them closer together? Or wedge them further apart? I will let you decide.

Second, what she learns about being a Necro. It was pretty neat meeting Louis. He is a pretty cool character and really helps out L

Absolutely amazing story as expected from BL Brunnemer. Love the narrators she's chosen as well. I have a whole page of notes - questions I need answered!!!! I love how the relationship is evolving and I can't wait for future developments. And the witches council!!! I can't wait to see how Lexie’s powers evolve. ...more

Another amazing installment of the Veil Diaries. Love the author’s character development. Even I cannot choose between the sexy guys. Lexi is an awesome main character and the story line progressed at a good pace. Can’t wait to see what is in store for the group next. Also looking forward to reading the next Book of Stone to see Evie’s POV of the events in this book. Ten glittery stars, but that’s not allowed, so five glittery stars.

I was looking forward to reading it... and then was a bit disappointed. I'm probably the only one, BUT... I feel Lexie just pulled on britches that are too big for her. She went from learning and doing her best, to being a subject matter "expert" in less than a year? Taking on a "role" that she has no business in. She overstepped, plain and simple. Supernatural politics for the teen and no one truly bats an eye at the huge leap she made into that role in NOLA? I just don't buy it, that was far t ...more

Yessssss! This book was everything! The build up, the beginning, the middle and that freaking ending! U want to re-read it again and I just finished it. Lexie and the guys are getting started and things in the magical community is getting crazy. Everything is crazy right now but so amazing! I'm going to be in agony until the next book!

Wow!!! Blown away by another instalment in this series. This story kicks up into serious high gear with loads of supernaturals, lots of action and suspense, and heaps of chemistry. Could not put it down. Was literally sneaking off in the middle of work to hide that I was reading a book instead of working!! Does not disappoint. Decisions, decisions for book 7!!! Can’t wait!

B.L.Brunnemer has been a devoted reader since she was young. As a child, she was instantly attracted to horror stories. The plot, the suspense, the action. She loved it all. Which, as she grew, branched out into several other genres. But a strong female character always caught her eye. Through the years romance became a big part of her reading. Then she found the Young Adult/New Adult genre. But s ...more
