Audiobook Tour: Intangible (Piercing the Veil #1) by C.A. Gray

Author: C.A. Gray

Narrator: Rebecca McKernan

Series: Piercing the Veil Trilogy, Book 1

Publisher: Wanderlust Publishing

Released: July 19, 2018

Length: 11 hours 46 minutes

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

Peter Stewart grew up on a unique version of the Arthurian legends taught him by his father, a harebrained quantum physicist who asserts that anything is possible. But Peter disbelieves anything which cannot be scientifically explained, despite a nagging sense that there is more to the world than meets the eye.

Lily Portman is an orphan with a secret: she can see creatures that are invisible to everyone else. These creatures control every human being she has ever met to varying degrees...until she meets Peter and his father.

When a mysterious stranger stages an accident which nearly costs Peter and Lily their lives, suddenly Lily learns that she is not crazy after all, and Peter discovers the truth of his father’s stories...including the existence of Arthur’s ancient nemesis, one who calls himself the Shadow Lord, and a prophecy with implications so profound that it will alter not only the course of their lives, but potentially the fate of the world.

  My Review:

3.5 Out Of 5 Stars

Genre: Another-World, Mystery, Retelling, Royal-Court, Supernatural, Suspense, Teen--

Peter does not fit in at school, he is bored at most subjects and excels at science where he may get a little overzealous about his own science projects, making him get into trouble more than most boys. Lily has never belonged, bouncing from foster homes, always the odd girl due to the fact she sees things other people do not. When the two happen to meet, they have no idea that fate has more in store for them then they can imagine.

Overall I found this to be a very unique, adventure story with a completely new take on the King Arthur story. There was magic, mystery, mayhem and a very interesting quirky bunch of characters that were so unpredictable that I could never anticipate what would happen next. Oh and we have manipulative monsters that not many can seen! The story is told from many characters points of views, some adults, some young teens but overall this book had a very middle grade/young YA feel to it that would make this a very appealing story to a younger audience as well as anyone who likes the myth of King Arthur.

At times I was a little confused as to what was going on since there were not really any transitions, just moving from one thing to the next but I realized that that may be due in part to the narrator- the story may have flowed more smoothly if I was reading the book. I was a little disappointed since basically all the characters sounded the same and I was never certain who was talking. Also, I ussually like to listen at speed 1.5x to my audiobooks but I had to turn it down to 1.25 since I could not always understand the narrator at the higher speed. I am sure others will absolutely love this audio0book, but it was probably not for me.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by C.A. Gray. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

By day, C.A. Gray is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD) with a primary care practice in Tucson, AZ, and she writes medical books under her real name (Dr. Lauren Deville). She lives with her husband, with whom she maintains a facetiously contentious movie review blog, and travels as often as they can get away. When not writing or seeing patients, she does yoga, drinks red wine while eating dark chocolate, and consumes audiobooks like there’s no tomorrow!


Narrator Bio

Born in the eighties, her formative years in the nineties, Rebecca's taste in music and fashion never really had a chance. Fortunately, you can't tell these things from her writing or voice over work. Her first novel, Trespasser, is as dark as her neon is bright, and you'd never guess from hearing her that she's narrating science fiction in nothing but unicorn pants. Currently residing in London, Rebecca is passionate about travel, and has a good- albeit sometimes dubious- ear for accents. She graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a degree in something or other, has a background in musical theatre, a past career in burlesque, and is a classically trained opera singer. Oh, and she likes greyhounds. And wine.
