Peter, Lily, Cole, and Brock are back in the second book of the Piercing the Veil Trilogy. And the Shadow Lord has arisen after 1500 years trapped by Excalibur and has taken over Peter's twin brother Kane's body. In this volume Peter and the Watchers of Carlion are seeking the Philosopher's Stone and racing Sargon to get it. The story is just as fun and adventuresome as Intangible and keeps you on the edge of your seat hoping that Peter and friends will make it out alive.

The story is well thought out and a tightly crafted book. Arthurian Legend is the foundation of the story but Quantum Physics is what brings this story into the modern age. In book 1, Peter really had a hard time accepting Carlion because he was an aspiring physicist and felt he had to prove everything for it to be real. In book 2 he still is struggling but he is learning to work within the world of the "gifts" and begins to accept his fate as "The Child of the Prophecy". However he also discovers he cares about the people of Carlion and especially Lily, who has finally found a home.

I received the book as an advance copy directly from the author and I am very appreciative, as it is a great book. I would share this with any tween to teen who loves Harry Potter, any version of the King Arthur Legends, or even readers of Rick Riordan as a good solid read in the realm of legend in a well written tale.
