I am fire. I am destruction. I will be their nightmare.
The veil fell. Demons are here. Muse knows she can stop the slaughter, but to do so, she must return to the battle-scarred streets of Boston and face the cold, hard, truth. Her old life is ashes. Her love, turned to dust. But all is not lost; a spark of hope remains. A spark from which an inferno can blaze.
To stop the demons claiming Earth as their own, Muse must unite those capable of repairing the veil. The Dark Court, led by her Prince of Lust father, seek to recruit her to their cause. They want the veil destroyed for good; for chaos to reign for eternity. She will need to maneuver around their deadly intentions, and enlist the King of Hell's help, before it's too late.
For Muse to succeed, she must survive her father, save her soul, resurrect her love, forgive her enemies, and betray a trust. She must be everything she can be; demon and human. She must be their nightmare.
In this, the fifth and final Veil Series book, we return to where it all began. To the netherworld, where once a wretched half-blood girl surprised the Prince of Greed. To a world where hope is fantasy, and love, a disease.
Muse is ready to take the fight to the demons. Are you?

A satisfying ending to a great series but i want more please ;) it's totally compelling, addictive and magnificent. Hollie Jackson is now my favourite narrator, she is excellent and she is totally captivating, enchanting and believable thank you. I am a bit sad for Akil but he is a demon the prince of greed and will always be so, but i believed he did love Muse and still do. I love that Muse and Stefan ends up together though. Poor Dawn the young queen of chaos has to be sacrificed but as mammon said history will repeat itself :D thank you Pippa I can't wait for your next series (chaos) Please release them on audio as well.

"Closing the Veil"
I just finish the fifth audiobook of The Veil Series. OMG... Pippa Lancaster you rock! This was a great story from start to finish. I'm so happy that you give it the ending that I had so hoped for. I definitely wanted Muse and Stefan together and not with Akil. I am wondering about the ending though because it seems that you might add more to this series or even write a spinoff to it. I'm wondering about the Prince of Greed Akil and his words at the end. I'm going to miss this series. For anyone who hasn't read or listened to this series then you're missing out. .
Narrator Hollie Jackson blew me away with her telling of this series. I must agree with Pippa when she wrote awhile back about having a crush on the narrator because of her narration of Akil. She's really good and her accents and voices of each character is pure perfection. All I can say is this is a must get series but the audiobooks are my favorite because each story comes to life. Hollie does a great job at bringing each story to life as if you're there. Overall, a perfect 5 🌟 rating!
"Please don't let it end!"
Yes, I'd recommend this book because as a finale to a series - there is nothing better!
I'd compare this to Kim Harrison's "The Witch With No Name". I believe these are comparable because each is amazingly well written, both provide appropriate resolution to the conflicts and both also compelled extreme reactions - fear, joy, pain, sadness - a loss of control.
While I enjoyed all of the characters she portrayed, Ryder was my favorite. "His" drawl, the tones - everything was rich, consistent and, even knowing Ms. Jackson was a woman - didn't make a difference. For me, she became Ryder and there was more than one smile, sigh, wince - caused not only by the story itself, but also by the reality portrayed by Ms. Jackson's performance!
Okay - honestly, this was a ROUGH book for me. I reached the last two chapters on the train. When I reached the car at the station, I paused, started the car, and restarted the story. By the time I reached the house - OMG! The veil was closing with Muse and Stefan on one side and Akil on the other. I knew from the previous book and Akil's soliloquy that something - something unselfish and heartbreakingly sad - was about to happen. I was there sitting in front of my house with fat tears streaming down my cheek! If I could have reached through the closing veil to pull him through myself - I would have done so! I found myself actual speaking his name....so sad!
I'm conflicted now - I'm ECSTATIC I found this series, it's amazing. I'm EXTREMELY saddened that it's now ended. I was happy there were so many in the series available, but maybe that was detrimental because now it's over and I've within the space of a week - I've both gained and lost so much! I'll be looking for more of Ms. DaCosta's book and more narrated by Ms. Jackson! Well done, ladies - well done!
she did it again! I fell in love with this series after book 1! I drive 85 miles each way to work and I finished the whole thing in less than a week I just could not stop listening! Love the narrator she's amazing really brings out the character of muze and I'm totally torn between Team Stefan and team aqeel lol
"And They All Lived Happily Ever After"
After a relationship filled with betrayal, violence and strife Stefan and Muse got their HEA. In the final book Pippa DaCosta tied up all of the lose ends. The only thing I didn't like about this book is that it seemed to drag as Muse over analysed everyone's thoughts and actions, including her own. And just when I thought the series was going to end on a sappy note, Akil saves the day with hope for the future. I enjoyed this series and wouldn't mind seeing a series based on Akil.
I hope the series will continue. New twists and turns and at every embarkment. Please continue.
I hope it does. This was a great addition to the series, but the ending seemed too happy, too final. I'm looking forward to where the story goes next.
I didn't want it to end. This is a suspenseful page turner series. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Hollie Jackson was totally awesome in narrating this series.
"Another Good Story in the Veil Series"
I have refered this to several friends. This series is very different. Not your normal paranormal demon romance. The main character is strong. I didn't want the story to end.
Muse is strong throughout the Veil series. Her dad is a real monster. I am amazed Muse turned out as well as she did. This book ties up all of the loose ends....and leaves room for a 6th book in the series.
All of Hollie's narrations are good. She has a voice that is easy to listen to and her accents are done well.
"Great way to end an awesome series"
Muse is a great main character and surrounded by a fully developed deliciously diabolical supporting cast. Hope to see more Pippa DeCosta released on audible in the near future.u only suggestion to improve the next series of books would be to spice up the romance and add more sex scenes. Why make the main character an creature of lust and fire and not take full advantage of the +18 audience.
I think the series was very good but I was hopeful about Akil.....sigh.....oh well
...still good though.
"Excellent book, loved the entire series."
I would recommend this series to any fan of myth and magic, urban fantasy etc. The performance is also second to none
