That is, until his championship football game, when Sam accidentally links with an ancient source of energy known as the Veil and reveals his potential to become a powerful sorcerer.Sam is whisked off to Atlas Crown, a community of sorcerers who utilize the Veil as a part of everyday life. Once there, he trains beside a mute boy who speaks through music, an eternal sage who's the eyes and ears of the Veil, and a beautiful girl who's pretty sure Sam's an idiot.As it becomes clear Sam's meant for power magic-the most feared and misunderstood form of sorcery-people beyond Atlas Crown learn of his dangerous potential. An exiled group of power sorcerers are eager to recruit Sam, believing that he is destined to help them achieve their long-held goal. If they succeed, they could bring about the downfall of not only Atlas Crown. but all humankind."

Magic. Imagine you coming into a power you never known. Coming into a whole new world, people, and culture. Fast-paced from the beginning, The Veil unravels magic from your fingertips!

What I enjoyed most about this book are the characters. Sam is unknowing coming in to power. I loved his reactions to unknown coincidences that are happening around him. Sam is smart and takes the news better than what I thought. Sam's voice is mature yet growing. I loved his interest in his new people and who he is to become.

What I also enjoyed is the great culture and dialogue in this book. It sort or reminded me of Avatar. You know, like stepping in a whole new world of rules, traditions and crazy ways of getting married. Still, all of these concepts kept the reader entertain and intrigued through out the whole book.

Masters of the Veil is filled with life and magic.  This great sorcery tale of unknown magic is good for anyone who seeks a good thrill.

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!
