Title: Impossible (Piercing the Veil Book 3)
Author: C.A. Gary
Number of Pages: 303
Synopsis: The Shadow Lord has the Philosopher’s Stone, and therefore an army of invincible penumbra. He also possesses the fragments of Excalibur, the legendary sword prophesied to be the instrument of either his own destruction, or that of the Child of the Prophecy. The sword, he knows, requires blood to be reforged… and he knows exactly whose blood he wants.
Meanwhile, the Watchers are desperate to steal back the fragments of Excalibur and find out how to reforge them before the Shadow Lord does. Isdemus places Peter and Lily in Carlion’s sister cities for safe-keeping until the war begins. But Peter and Lily have an idea that might enable the Watchers to steal back the fragments, in spite of the Shadow Lord’s invincible army. Their plan requires them to travel halfway across the world, to an island largely believed to exist only in Greek mythology. Along the way, however, the Shadow Lord uses a pawn to convince Peter and Lily that they are powerless. Without their gifts of the Ancient Tongue, will either one of them stand a chance?
In this gripping conclusion of the Piercing the Veil trilogy, the Watchers and the Shadow Lord both amass their ranks, the battle begins, and the true identity of the Child of the Prophecy is revealed—to the shock of all.
Impossible Piercing the Veil Book 3 is an exhilarating quest in the search for the fragmented pieces of the mighty Excalibur.
As they try to come to terms with Sully's death, Lily and Peter learn that they will be leaving Carlion. The Watchers seek to protect them from the Shadow Lord, who now posses Kane's knowledge which could prove deadly for those suspected of being The Child of the Prophecy. Each will be sent to separate sister cities and their destinations will be kept secret for their own protection. However, Peter and Lily know they must find one another and continue the search for Excalibur if there is any hope of defeating the Shadow Lord.
Impossible is the final story in the Piercing the Veil Trilogy and it does not disappoint. The excitement that has been building over the last two books continues and the mystery behind the Child of the Prophecy is revealed. I like that the author keeps some secrets of her own and the surprising twist makes the story all that more thrilling. Impossible is well organized and created with such imagination readers can't help becoming engrossed.
It's an excellent series for middle grade and young adult readers and I highly recommend picking up the entire trilogy. Available on Amazon.
