The second book of the series The Immortal Veil, titled “The Leaves of Dusk,” redefines the word EPIC. The first part, “The Exiled Son,” introduces the reader to the characters, and gets the reader attached to each and every man, woman, and creature through side stories and plot lines. Then, in Part 2, White takes the reader’s favorite characters and begins to systematically abuse them, breaking them down emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I found myself actually vocalizing while I was reading, “He better not actually be dead! He better make some miraculous recovery!” White pushes the characters to the edge, and in doing so pushes the reader to the edge as well. Then, when it couldn’t possibly get more epic, “The Leaves of Dusk” climaxes with the most intense and moving battle I have ever come across. Don’t make the mistake and stop reading after Part 1. Instead, dive into “The Leaves of Dusk,” Part 2 (I promise you won’t regret it!) If you don’t read the second half (now that would be regrettable!), you will be missing out on a rich and rare experience that comes only with reading the most epic novel ever written.
