Veiled Mist- Review & #giveaway #IOBOOKTOURS


 Eleanor T. Beaty

On the Caribbean island of Maurray, spoiled-rotten, fifteen-year-old Hanna wakes up to a nightmare. She is not the daughter of an aristocrat but the orphan of a Gypsy. She is the descendant to a mystical Gypsy tribe. Their magic is strong and has lasted six hundred years. Ornella, the tribe’s guardian, arrives at the island with her mutt, Count Dracula, to guide Hanna. Hanna is told she must embrace her heritage or die at the ripe age of seventeen. But Hanna does the unthinkable, she chooses death. She hates Gypsies and would rather die. What she doesn’t know is that her death will destroy the entire tribe. What she also doesn’t know is how persuasive Ornella can be. The nightmare begins.

My Thoughts : 
This was the first Gypsy related book that I've read.  Hanna is a spoiled brat, raised to believe her dead mother was from Royal blood. She treats everyone with snobbery and doesn't even realize how she acts.  Little does she know how much her life is about to change!!  Her eyes are finally opened by both Ornella & Alistair (the hunky jock who loathes the very look of her, yet Hanna has a crush on).  Immediately upon introduction,  I absolutely loved Ornella! She can be very demanding but is always there saving the day. She tries to act tough but has a big heart !  The real star of the show was Count Dracula, Ornella's mutt. There are so many times that Count stole my heart by making me laugh at his antics! We should all be so lucky to have a dog like Count !!  I was truly impressed to watch Hanna grow and change into a much better person as the story progressed!  I loved some of the lessons taught in this book! I'll definitely be passing it on to my teenagers as well! :)  If you enjoy YA paranormal books, check this one out !
