All she has to do is kidnap the crowned princess of the northern Queendom, Princess Joana of Arethusa. The prize is just within reach. But sparks fly as the two women collide. And an obscured threat that could upturn Shea’s entire world storms on the horizon. She’ll face it alone unless she can allow herself the support she needs from old and new allies alike. Something’s coming and Shea is at the center of it.
The candle sticks drip onto the short table by the fire, and the night fades into heated bliss.
Wow! This was so much more that I had hoped it would be. Nereid is an amazingly immersive, unique universe and after reading the first chapter I was completely hooked. The characters and story are so in depth and satisfying, I’m really looking forward to where Sophia Menesini takes us in the next book!
The Veiled Threat is Menesini’s debut novel, about Captain Shea Lara, leader of The Veiled Duchess, an elven pirate, she’s looking for her final score before retiring. After completing her former mentor’s score of stealing a pearl, she is approached by someone who’s offering her the biggest score; a score that she absolutely cannot refuse, a score that’ll help save her people and all she has to do is kidnap a queen. But things take a turn…
I don’t want to spoil tooooo much, but there are so many layers/twists to this action-packed adventure and knowing there’s a lot more to come from just the epilogue is super exciting! I highly recommend giving this one a read.
Sophia Menesini lives in Martinez, CA with her husband, and their two small Chihuahuas, Ziggy and Zeppelin. The Veiled Threat is her first novel and the first book in The Veiled Duchess Series.
