Item Description...
In this fantastic tale, the veil between our world and the mythic land of Welken is thinning, and four teenagers are swept up in the adventures-and dangers-that are beginning to alter reality.

These four misfits find themselves able to cross from our world to that of Welken, where they awaken powerful magic within themselves and become heroes. Now they must return to Welken to rescue to rescue entrapped friends and resist the onslaught of a merciless army marching on a peaceful land. But this incredible adventure forces the friends to face their own weknesses, nightmares, and pain...or be overcome.

Gueardian of the Veil is a populated by teenaged-heroes, but written with a sophistication and wit that will appeal to adult readers as well. The transformative nature of Gregory Spencer's writing provides invaluable lessons on the way we perceive illness, good versus evil, and the supernatural world. An enthralling and enriching tale, Guardian of the Veil explores the fantasy of parallel worlds and beckons readers into their mysterious and enlightening corners.

Publishers Description
What if the fabric of our world were stretching or tearing...or getting thinner...and we could step through that veil into another world?
It's been a month since the Misfits -- four friends who like to commiserate -- were catapulted out of their adventures in the land of Welken and back into an ordinary summer in the small town of Skinner, Oregon.
Mysterious reminders of those exciting days begin popping up everywhere. A mountain lion. A sailboat. A children's story. Could Lizbeth, Bennu, Len, and Angie be needed, once again, in Welken? If so, for what purpose?
And things seem different this time. Are little signs of Welken rippling through Skinner? Do the multiplying wonders mean that two worlds are about to collide? Or has Welken been within the Misfits' reach all along, but they just hadn't seen it?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Worse than the first one!  Oct 3, 2007
I read 'The Welkening' which is the first book in this series, and it was not horrible, but it was far from good.
When I picked up, 'Guardian of the Veil' (please don't ask me why!) I couldn't have been more disappointed. I truly don't know if I've ever read a book that I liked less than this. I read it only because I had read the first book. Once I had started reading, I wanted to stop. Over and over I wished the story would just END! I didn't stop reading because I'm just not good at quitting.

Once again, the dialogue is horrendous. The teenagers are not believable. I know it's fiction, but a good fictional story will have characters you can relate to, this story just doesn't. Problems arise in the book that are believable, but they are handled much too easily. Real-life just doesn't work that way.

'Three-Dimensional Tale'? Please stop. It's not good.
Welken is back  Sep 26, 2007
Lisbeth Neferti, her brother, Bennu, their friends Angie, and her brother Len, live in Skinner Oregon. Known as the Misfits, they have the ability to make magical trips to Welken. (see book one, The Welkening) Lisbeth is having nightmares that are so real and so horrible they leave her reeling with despair. Suddenly strange things begin to happen and the four are called back behind the veil. They love Welken, and have looked foward to going back, but instead of the peace and happiness they expect, they find Piers is in trouble and needs their help.

Guardian of the Veil has teenage protagonists, but it has a twisted plot, and a sophisticated writing style that will appeal to adults. A rich, multi-layered story that forces the characters to face their own shortcomiongs and grow from the experience. Fans of The Welkening will love Guardian of the Veil.
Fascinating Read  Sep 17, 2007
Guardian of the Veil is a delightful book - well written, engaging, thought provoking. The characters are wonderful and the language beautifully descriptive. It is a page turner and leaves one thinking about the various themes well into the night.
The characters make GUARDIAN OF THE VEIL very special  Aug 12, 2007
In Skinner, Oregon live four teenagers Angie, Lizbeth, Bennu, and Len; they don't fit in and are proud of the fact. In their neighborhood the veil between their world and Welken is so thin that they are able to travel there when summoned. Became part of Welken when they willimng helped defeat the evil one Morphane. While there they are able to change into animal shapes, Lizbeth an ox, Angie an angel, Len a falcon and Bennu a falcon Their work there was given the blessing of Solion the being who is everything.

Now they are called back again but they don't know what there mission is and they can only transform partially into animal shapes. The young ladies get separated from their male peers leading to separate adventures. The females learn that Mary and her Cutters want to take over Deedy Swamp and surrounding areas; while Len and Bennu learn that Fetagar and Tremlings want to do the same thing. Now the Misfits have to figure out how to stop them and to do that they have to figure out four cryptic lines that are spoken to them over a period of time.

The characters make GUARDIAN OF THE VEIL very special. The teens are youths with problems like a grandmother who has Alzheimer's and a mother who is an alcoholic but they succeed in not allowing their personal issues to affect their responsibilities. In fact, the problems help make them stronger warriors and the battles help them deal better with their family issues. Readers will care about them and hope they succeed in all their endeavors.
