I really enjoyed B.K. Bass' Parting the Veil. This novel moves at a swift pace and is very well written. The story is great, mixing Lovecraftian elements with adventures reminiscent of the Indiana Jones series. I'm looking foward to finding out where the story goes next. ...more

PARTING THE VEIL by B.K. Bass thrusts the reader on an adventure reminiscent of Indiana Jones meets The Mummy. Richard, an American treasure hunter, and Wilkins, an English professor of archeology, uncover more than a simple antiquity in the jungles of Peru. Their discovery unleashes horror on the nearby village, prompting the two men to leave expeditiously. Unexplainable events follow them as they seek to unravel the meaning of the idol within their possession. The appearance of a lone Frenchma ...more

A quick trip down the gothic rabbit hole. This story includes aspects of Lovecraft, Verne and the Indiana Jones series, yet the author has a voice that is distinctly his own. Bass is excellent at combining craft elements we usually expect in literary fiction (strong character development,interiority, and carful attention to setting) while not taking away from the action (or fun!)

Full disclosure: I was lent a digital ARC to review, but have an order in for my print copy - it’s that good.

I had the privilege of being able to read an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of this incredible novel.

This isn't the first book I've had a chance to read as an ARC by B.K. Bass. I previously reviewed Warriors of Understone and absolutely loved it. I consider myself lucky to be able to read more of his work. Of course, that means I have certain expectations going into reading this novel.

If you read my previous review of his work, you will have noticed that I went on and on about the world-building. Wh

When I sat down to read Parting the Veil, I did not realise that it would consume my life until it was done. I literally could not put the book down without a great yearning to know more about what would happen to the characters next.
This story focuses upon an unlikely team of treasure hunters in the form of a brash, rich American explorer, and a more reserved and cautious English archaeologist/academic. Together they have made a business from seeking out rare and presumed lost artefacts and se

An Enthralling and Epic Adventure of Twists, Turns & Mystery!

I was given an Advanced Reader Copy of “Parting the Veil” in exchange for an honest review.

“Parting the Veil” is hands down one the best books I have read in a long time! I am so looking forward to the continuation of this epic adventure in Book II of this “Beyond the Veil” series and see what else this author will bring us in the future!

Bass’s writing is sublime, rich, seamless, and not a word is wasted!

This story is a snappy, yet

I enjoyed the adventure and references to current events at that time. The character dialogues, accents, and personalities were great! While this was a great story and dark and interesting adventure this didn't give me the "I can't put this down feeling". Mind you I still loved everything about the story and was always ready and excited to come back chapter after chapter. I enjoyed the dark eerie curse and the constant what ifs. Overall good read! Job well done B. K. Bass! ...more

There are very few writers today who can craft a world the way B.K. Bass can. It's rich, it's layered, and it's enticing. The characters are real, the story is gripping, and you are a bit sad when you reach the last page. As much as I want to gush about my favorite this or that, even the slightest detail would lead to spoilers.

Slow hand clap for Parting the Veil.

I blazed through this book because of the constant intrigue, peril, adventure, and likeable characters. While there were some typos and punctuation errors, it didn't diminish my enjoyment of the story.
I eagerly await the sequel!

Finished this gem in 5 hours...I just couldn’t put it down. The rich history and landscapes bring the imagery right to you and the descriptive horror had me reeling. Can’t wait for more of this story!

My favorite book by this amazing author and editor. Bass excels at world building. Set in the 1930s, this book is part Lovecraft, part Indiana Jones, and all its own thing.
