Beyond the Veil (The Grey Wolves #5) by Quinn Loftis

Goodreads description:

Though the Serbian pack has been brought to heel thanks to the downfall of their Alpha, the war is far from over.
Desdemona, a witch of unfathomable power, has escaped the wolves’ wrath, but she will not go quietly into the night. She takes refuge in a place where even the smallest sliver of light does not dare to enter. Though she had to flee, she has not given up on the treasure she wishes to acquire. Her depravity knows no bounds; she's even willing to search for the one who can assist her in opening a Veil that has not been opened in millennia – with good reason: the danger is incalculable.

Meanwhile, there are major changes rippling through the Romanian Grey wolves. Decebel has become Alpha to the Serbian pack in an effort to begin to unite the Canis lupis species. Their numbers are dwindling in the wake of the shortage of true mates and lack of offspring. The wolves are beginning to lose faith and darkness seems to be crashing in on them from all sides. But the winds of change are blowing, changes that will alter the future of not only the Canis lupis, but of another ancient race as well.
Amidst all of this, Sally is continuing to come to terms with her relationship with the playful, charming, flirty, unbelievably handsome bartender – who happens to be a member of the Romanian pack.
If all that weren’t enough, the Fates have decided to pay a little visit to Jen. It’s time to collect. She cheated the Fates of a life, her life. Now they want what they are due. The problem? It’s more than Jen is willing to pay.
Yes, the war is indeed far from over. Bargains will be struck, declarations will be made, sacrifices will be given, love will be tested, and trust will be questioned as evil makes its stand against them all.

Mary's Review:

First, I need to thank Quinn Loftis for the ARC of this book.  When I got the email I held my Kindle to my chest and jumped up and down screaming like a little girl! (Don't believe me: ask my husband)  I have loved The Grey Wolves Series since the very first word of the very first book.  Quinn is an amazing author and person! I received the email around 10 pm last night and started the book right away and finished about 2:30 am.  I could NOT put it down!

Best Parts: *sigh* Decebel and Jennifer will be my favorites of this series and even though this is mainly Sally's story these two swoop right in and "steal" the scene for me.  I still consider Jennifer to be the funniest character ever written!  However, Sally, Costin, Fane and Jacque truly complete the circle of friendship.  I love how Quinn makes their personalities, crazy statements, love and protection all fit together.  It is perfect.  I also love the new characters and the old ones that are brought into the story.  The twist and turns in this book is amazing!! I loved everyone, even the ones that made me cry!

Not so great: I am going to be so honest, I can even feel the tears welling up in my eyes right now as I type this.  I love Quinn, this is true, BUT this lady knows how to rip out my heart, stomp on it, then shove it back into my chest and then just ends the book! O.  M.  G!! I have a love/hate relationship with cliffhangers and Quinn is the Queen of them for this series.

This book will not be released until September 30th and I cannot wait for my Pack Mates, @AuthQuinnLoftis ,@Camelott77, @CandaceSelph, @HANNAHLCHURCH, @kvsgrimes,  @ShelleyCarman and @QuinnLoftisFans on Twitter to read this because by far this is the best of the series! Again, I want to thank Quinn and I will be counting down the days until Book 6!
