In a battle between two ancient evils, can one naïve young man become the last hope against powerful creatures of legend?
David Dolan thinks he's already got the world figured out. But when a collapsed bridge plunges him into the icy Hudson, he's pulled deep into the deadly realm that exists between life and death. And with his earthly form trapped in a coma, he's vulnerable to the horde of demons hell-bent on his utter destruction.
Traversing the road to the afterlife, David seeks the wisdom and skills he needs to fight the demonic forces reigning havoc on his allies above ground. But as one hellish threat closes in on his defenseless body, David must defeat another terrifying fiend waiting in the shadows to use him...
Can David escape the world beneath the veil in time to stop the bloodshed?
Beneath the Veil is the gripping first book in The Valor of Valhalla dark urban fantasy series. If you like reluctant heroes, infernal myths, and bloody epic clashes, then you'll love Martin Kearns's formidable foray into the unknown.
"Kearns deftly introduces an epic and avoids cramming this engaging series opener with characters and plot. This intriguing tale of mythological beings introduces what promises to be an exhilarating saga." — Kirkus Reviews

A throughly interesting and captivating read. It was interesting to say the least. I had a lot of fun getting into this. Highly recommend!
Well thought out fantasy involving Nordic mythology. Sprinkle on dark supernatural elements and mystery while following along with the hero on his journey. Fast paced and fun. Thank you to NetGalley for allowing me to read the book for an honest review
This is a much darker story than I usually enjoy. It blends many faith traditions and folklore into an interesting journey that is definitely fraught with tragic outcomes. And this is only the beginning of the story…
There is violence and a small amount of language. The story would be appropriate for teens and adults.
