Life can’t get much better for Sam Lock. Popular, good-looking, and with a future as a professional football player… every guy at Stanton High School wishes he were Sam. That is, until his championship football game, when Sam accidentally links with an ancient source of energy known as the Veil and reveals his potential to become a powerful sorcerer.
Sam’s dreams are crushed as he is whisked off to Atlas Crown, a community of sorcerers who utilize the Veil as a part of everyday life. Once there, he trains beside a mute boy who speaks through music, an eternal sage who is the eyes and ears of the Veil, and a beautiful girl who's pretty sure Sam's an idiot.
As it becomes clear that Sam is meant for power magic—the most feared and misunderstood form of sorcery—people beyond Atlas Crown learn of his dangerous potential. An exiled group of power sorcerers are eager to recruit Sam, believing that he is destined to help them achieve their long-held goal. If they succeed, they could bring about the downfall of not only Atlas Crown… but all of humankind.

If you are after a fun, adventure filled ride with action, magic and intrigue then Masters of the Veil will be for you.” – Sharon, Obsession With Books
"When you combine Texas and Football...well, you can't go wrong.
Then you throw in a heaping spoonful of magic and POW...you have the
makings for an extraordinary novel... Daniel's writing is
creative in ways I can only dream about. He invents foods that I'm dying
to taste, animals that shouldn't exist (but I love that they do), and
characters who make you feel."
A. Cohen excels at descriptive prose, creating concoctions I only wish
could actually be real. From delicious-sounding food to creatures that
don't naturally exist such as rinsefish, symflowers, and echo flies,
Atlas Crown is brimming with magic in a way I haven't seen in other
fantasy novels." http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/304546651
Cohen has weaved a fantasy story in a wonderfully detailed setting with
characters that are so likeable that you can’t help but be engrossed by
the story he is telling... If you are after a fun, adventure filled ride with action, magic and intrigue then Masters of the Veil will be for you." http://www.obsessionwithbooks.blogspot.com/
