Hello fellow book nerds!
So here it is. The ending of the Harbinger series. It has been a crazy and emotional ride with Cettie and Sera but coming from Jeff Wheeler is that anything new?
While I am very sad this series is coming to an end it was so much fun to read. I love the worlds that he has created and each character I am emotionally attached to, again. If you haven’t explored his books yet, please do yourself the favor and start it now.

Rating according to Goodreads:
5-It was amazing
4- Really liked it
3- Liked it
2- It was okay
1- Did not like it
No person, Cettie or otherwise, could define truth. It existed, independent of belief. Inviolate. Immovable.
5 out of 5 stars
Taken from Goodreads
Rescued from a world of poverty, Cettie Pratt has avoided a bleak destiny—until now. Deceived and manipulated, she has been groomed for the ultimate betrayal: to destroy her best friend and stop peace from uniting two war-torn worlds. Her path leads her to a mysterious underworld where appearances can be deceiving.
Sera Fitzempress knows the value she has to her enemies. As heir to the empire, she must keep her foes at bay and prevent them from unleashing a being of unspeakable evil upon the world while fighting a brutal war. But her enemies are more cunning than Sera expects, and the key to their plans is none other than her best friend.
Neither woman knows what to believe. Neither one knows if she can trust the other. Both Cettie and Sera have made decisions that have irrevocably changed them. But the decisions they have yet to make will determine the fate of their world…
As in Jeff Wheeler fashion this book is the last one of the series so of course tense scenes were all over the place. This book was impossible to put down because I needed to figure out how it was all going to end. It takes place a year after Prism Cloud but not much is missed. Cettie is fully trained and Sera is doing everything she can to try to win this war. It is hard to talk much about the plot without spoiling it but rest assured, there are twists and surprises behind every chapter. It is fantastically put together and ends this series well.
Oh Cettie and Sera. How they have grown from book one. I was worried about Cettie after Prism Cloud, I will not lie. However, Wheeler always does what is right by the character and Cettie deserves everything that has happened to her. Even though I hate what the poisoner school has become (it’s so hard to completely hate it because Ankarette), I’m glad Cettie went there. She learned so much about herself and it was the perfect growth for her character. To see Cettie from a waif in the Fells to a strong confident woman was a fantastic transition. Then Sera. I have loved Sera from the beginning and seeing her fulfill her role as empress is so rewarding. She is so smart and cunning which really shows in this book. I love how she never lost her personality and faith in people, even through everything. Wheeler develops these two characters even further than I could have ever imagined. And THE SURPRISE CHARACTERS OMG I FREAKED OUT. I love how he just perfectly plans everything and each character interaction is so crucial.
Overall, Broken Veil by Jeff Wheeler is the perfect ending to this series. While I can always use more, Jeff Wheeler has done it again. Everything that he emotionally puts his readers through is paid off. The adventures of Cettie and Sera may be coming to a close but this book does them justice. Each twist to the story kept me turning the pages eagerly awaiting what would happen next. I highly recommend this series to every fantasy reader.
