Summer Magic

In case you didn’t know, this week on the Four Foxes, One Hound blog, we’re hosting a giveaway. We have goodies galore to give away and I hope you’re taking advantage of your chances to win!

I’d like to talk about the creatures of the Veil. For those of you who haven’t read the books in my series, the Veil is the secret paranormal community that exists parallel to the human world. It’s filled with creatures of myth and legend and my own imagination.

Elementals (earth, water, air, fire) are the personification of the elements.

Dryads are female tree huggers of the Veil.

Sirens/Crooners have musical voices that can seduce (crooners are m ale).

Succubi/Incubi are gorgeous women/men who feed off of arousal of the opposite sex.

Minotaurs are shifters who can change from man, to bull, to a man/bull combination

Amazons are a warrior race of humanoid women

Angels/Demons not in the theological sense

Fairies from many different realms with different powers

Vampires feed off of the chemicals in blood, not the actual blood

Wereanimals nearly every predatory animal in existence is represented

Nymphs are closely linked to Elementals and can only have one lover. Ever.

Warmages/witches are magical humans who can conjure and anything else to do with magic.

Dwarves aren’t short and bearded. They’re great builders and miners though.

Satyrs are the frat boys of the Veil. They’re all about partying and hooking up with women.

Elves are just as mystical as they appear in Hollywood, but not nearly as stuck up.

I’m sure I’m missing a few, but those are the only ones I can call to mind at the moment.

Four books into this series, I’ve had to change my mind about what I’d want to be if I lived in the Veil. At first, I wanted to be a weretiger. Cause that’s just awesome. Really. I’ve always wanted to be a cat…you know, sleeping for twenty hours, being innately graceful, and having fur. How cool is that? But as I wrote this series, my mind started to change.

Now, I’m thinking I’d much rather be an Amazon. Sure, they’re war-like, they tend to work out more than anyone should, but they have to be the coolest race I’ve come across in my series. They’re tough women, warriors to the core, but they’re a close-knit family who always has each others’ backs. Who could ask for more?

So here’s how you can enter the contest for today:

1 point – Comment about which Veil race you’d like to be.

2 points – Comment and share this post

3 points – Join my fan page (leave a message on my wall to let me know you’ve joined)

4 points – subscribe to this blog!

5 points – if you’ve read the series, tell me your favorite part of any one of the books

Good luck, folks!

  2. I tell my cat all the time I want her life! LOL!

    You have lots of complicated things going on in your brain, my friend- must be why I love ya!

      I look at my cats and dog and think “You’re so lucky!” LOL My brain is not a place many would want to venture into. It’s a good thing I don’t hang out with mind-readers 😉

    Not eligible for any points this week, but I guess I’d prefer to be a Minotaur — of the variety of creatures listed.
    There are others on that list who I’d like to be friends with, of course. Ha.


  4. wyndwhisper says:

    i think i would be a mix of a couple of different ones. if that was even possible. i like the idea of the amazons and the toughness and sense of family they had but i also like the mystery of the Elves and the loyalty of the Nymph.
    so if i could mix those 3 i would probably be that but if not then i’m not sure.
    i liked and commented on your FB page,and i am subscribed to this blog. i have not read the books yet but they are in the ever growing TBR pile. so i think that makes 8 points.


    • danicaavet says:

      Hmm, you’d fall into the halfling category. I knew I forgot one! Halflings are combinations of—usually—two races, but I think you’d still fall in that category. You picked three good races!


  5. I think wyndwhisper has the right idea. are there halflings of halflings? That would be cool, i think! probably really complicated tho *_*.


  6. Hmm hard quesiton Id love to be an amazon to, but the Nymph’s sound rather romantic 🙂 can I be halfling of halfings tooo lol..

    Ive popped over to facebook and left you a comment, I am Katrina whittaker, joined your subscription, shared on twitter, I am run_with_wolves, :O) I havent yet read your books but would love to I found your post over at ROmance reviews 🙂 I love that place . Meet new authors and great books !!!!!

    Thanks for the post !! the creatures of the veil certainly sound intriguing 🙂



    • danicaavet says:

      Welcome, Katrina! Yes, those Nymphs are something else *not giving away secrets to upcoming books, not gonna do it* Ah, couldn’t have an Amazon-Nymph halfling since they both only breed daughters. Should’ve mentioned that, LOL


  7. Renee Rearden says:


    Well, I’d love to be an Amazon woman as well. Who wouldn’t want to be a badass female warrior in killer shape? As far at the series, I LOVE Lifestyles of the Fey and Dangerous. I think my favorite part is Noelani knowing she’s going to be tortured for loving and not kiling Malachi. Sespite everything she’s done in her past, she knows she can’t kill him. What she’s done is wrong and she wants to live a different life and make up for her past. Okay, that’s probably more than one “thing” in the book, but it’s a theme and a scene… =D

    Not sure how to score the points since I’ve already “liked” your fan page. So I guess it’s
    +1 comment
    +1 sharing article (on my facebook page)
    +1 signed up for newsletter
    +1 read the Veil series

    I’ve got my fingers crossed!

    • danicaavet says:

      LOL, yes, Amazons rule. I’d totally have to be one, especially if I could have friends like Izzy and Rosetta! I’m still so thrilled you enjoyed the book. It makes me so happy to know that Lani’s story touched you!


  8. Deborah says:

    I’d love to be able to talk to my dog! 🙂 Dryads and amazons sound like fun too. It would be a tough choice!


  9. Would totally want to be a succubus. Sounds like great fun. So one point for me for commenting and I’m going to tweet it. I Tweet as @DandWH so check it out. =)


  10. Julianne says:

    I think I wouldn’t mind being an elf–or an Amazon would be nice too. Depending on what the shapeshifters were…I don’t know, I’d have to think about that one.

    I tweeted this for you as @juliannewrites and am a subscriber to the blog. 🙂 Happy Summer!


    • danicaavet says:

      Ooh, shifters are my favorite. Well, other than the Amazons. There are wolf, bear, tiger, lion, coyote, jaguar, leopard, cheetah and much more in the shifter world. So many to choose from, LOL


  11. JoAnna B says:

    Ok, that is a tough one. I think it would be cool to be a cat shifter, but I think it would be really cool to be a siren.

      Yeah, the sirens are pretty cool. I’m still trying to decide who the heroine of my next Veil book will be and I’m flip-flopping between a siren and a nymph. So many choices!!
