They've found their mate, but will they be able to protect her?
Jason and Donovan took a huge risk when they left their pack with the hope of finding their mate. April is everything the brothers have ever dreamt of, but she's even more special than they can imagine. The battle between their enemies on the other side of The Veil comes at the worst possible time, just when Jason and Donovan have something precious to lose.
April always knew she was a little different. She spent most of her life trying to forget the fact, but when her instincts tell her to pack up everything and move to an entirely different country, she can't help but listen...and then a handsome stranger comes to her rescue one night.
The force of her connection with Jason and his brother Donovan pierces her soul. But will April be able to accept the truth of her real heritage and embrace it in time to find her happy ending?

They are drawn together by destiny. Danger surrounds them. There will be tough choices for them all. In the end, they can only count on their love for one another to keep them safe.
Jason and Donovan are brothers who have waited eagerly for their mate. They are both wolf shifters and Donovan is the beta to the Alpha and devotes much of his time and energy to protecting the pack from danger. Jason has a little more freedom from pack responsibilities and is quite the charmer. When Jason meets their mate and notifies Donovan, it brings them great joy. Danger enters the picture very quickly. They have to make choices between saving their new mate and their responsibilities to the pack.
April has always felt different and feel compelled to leave her home and go to Canada. She loves to help others. When she meets Jason, she also feels a strong connection. Learning about his brother surprises her but doesn't daunt her from pursuing this new future. There are plenty of other surprises in store for her. Great danger surrounds her but the love of her mates keeps her focused.
This is the second book in the series. I did not the read the first book yet. I did feel a little lost at times in the beginning so I think it would be best to read the books in order. From what I understand, this book gives a different perspective on the events from the first book and introduced many of the characters so they do really tie in with one another.
Empowered women is something you definitely find in the story. The female characters are not content to wait at home while the men they love are at risk. They are quick to get involved if it can save another life. They make some hard choices and accept the consequences. I really enjoyed the fact that in the end the women and men work together to take on the challenges they face. The men respect their abilities even if they have to fight their own strong desire to protect them from danger.
Each of the characters is well developed but sometimes that is not the case in menage books. I really liked the alternate point of views the authors use to tell the story. You get to really understand what April, Jason and Donovan are feeling as they share their inner thoughts with the reader and with each other. It is an intimate connection you don't always find and makes the story more powerful. I was laughing out loud during one of the sexual encounters that embarrassed one of the members of the triad who was at a meeting with the pack while the other two were having some fun in the bedroom.
This second book in the Beyond the Veil series delivers a great mix of romance and action. I encourage you to read Chasing Faete before starting this book as they are tied together and this book presents another perspective on the characters and actions from the first book. The menage relationship between the three characters is very well written and enhanced by the multiple point of views the authors use to deliver the story. It is a fast-paced story with hot scenes between the mates and some humor too. They really bond as they work together to take on dangerous enemies. It leaves you eager to read the third book in the series which will hopefully answer some of the interesting questions that develop during this book.

DECIDING HER FAETE is the story of Donovan, the Beta of Gabe's Pack whom we met in book 1, his brother Jason, and their mate April. It starts off straightforward--April is their mate, kidnapped by the evil Kheelan, together with Jason. Donovan has to rescue them both. Sounds simple, doesn't it? Trust me, it's not. There is one helluva plot to this book, and it is full on action--whether that is inside the bedroom or out! We meet again characters from the previous book, noticeably Corrinne, Gabe, Erica and her mates. We also learn the cost that Erica has had to pay for using her healing gifts to get rid of Alefric.
This is once again smoothly written, with no transitions visible as it changes from one author to the next. The storyline itself is intriguing and complex, offering so much more still to come. This is a story in and of itself, although it does lead nicely onto the next book. This is turning out to be a wonderful series, and definitely recommended by me.
