Holes in the Veil (Book #2) will be released February 16, 2021!
In a land where magic’s feared, a rare magical kind exists: the Blest, products of the Goblets Immortal. Aidan’s a Blest on the run, forced to return home. He made his family vanish decades ago, but believes there’s a way to bring them back.
Whispers of a new fear take shape in Meraude, a mage who hates all magic-kind. When she appears in Aidan’s dreams offering a bargain for the return of his family, Aidan’s desires battle with his self-preservation.
Is it wise for Aidan to seek the Goblets Immortal for Meraude’s unknown purposes? Friend and foe blur the magical lines, and Aidan must discern who will shake his hand or slit his throat.

Beth Overmyer is the author of several works of genre fiction, the middle grade novella In a Pickle being among them. Fueled by tea, loved by cats everywhere, she balances her home life with writing novels and leading a creative writing group at her local library.
“Overmyer has written a promising series opener with a rich supporting cast of characters. Packed full of adventure and ending with a cliffhanger that leaves readers anxiously awaiting a sequel.”
“The magic system that Overmyer creates is compelling as well as familiar, so the reader has no issues buying into it the moment it is introduced. This fantasy has a similar flavor to YA, making it a good transition novel for the teen who is ready to begin reading adult fantasy. The book is fast-paced and can be read in a day—perfect for a long airplane ride.”
“The Goblets Immortal is a very interesting and unique fantasy story. Aiden and Slaine are very characters that are worth following, there is cool magic, an evil Mage, and almost no knows what is going on! It is fun and chaotic, and I really enjoyed the read.”
“I had a blast reading this compelling fantasy with a wonderful character driven plot lead by a sympathetic, but kick ass main character! I highly recommend this book!”

“A well-paced, character driven novel that immediately pulled me in and wouldn’t let me put it down.”
