PARTING THE VEIL by B.K. Bass thrusts the reader on an adventure reminiscent of Indiana Jones meets The Mummy. Richard, an American treasure hunter, and Wilkins, an English professor of archeology, uncover more than a simple antiquity in the jungles of Peru. Their discovery unleashes horror on the nearby village, prompting the two men to leave expeditiously. Unexplainable events follow them as they seek to unravel the meaning of the idol within their possession. The appearance of a lone Frenchman deepens the mystery and a game of wits begins. Who can retrieve the remaining idols first? Can the two men put an end to the death and destruction which their archeological find has released upon their world?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If you are seeking an adventure, look no further. It is filled with tension from beginning to end. From the jungles of Peru to the Bayous of Louisiana, Richard and Wilkins find their travels split between two worlds-one that has been hidden for centuries. The author’s descriptions give life to histories, myths, and legends. The imagery is vivid but not overly descriptive, allowing the reader to immerse oneself in the story without being bombarded in a list of adjectives.
Well written and stimulating! Truly original. I look forward to reading the next installment and finding answers. Who closed the veil and why reopen it?
