    1. Primus Lead Agent Cris Sietinen (Sights?, Tararian Selective Service (TSS) is in charge of new trainees.

Currently she is an instructor at the Headquarters teaching training classes while the ship is having a Preventive Maintenance (PM) check. Their son Williame Wil Sietinen Sietinen (14) is also involved with T [...]

    2. This book has almost everything: kidnapping, revenge, betrayal, sabotage, action, adventure, and the all-important creation of a nemesis. Though sadly, it’s missing an epic space battle (I love a good capital ship battle). However, knowing where the series is heading, an epic space battle showdown is almost certainly in the cards for future books.The focus of Veil of Reality moves from Cris to his son Wil. Wils importance to the TSS, the Priesthood, the Bakzen, as well as the possible future o [...]

    3. This entry in the series was better than the first. The story seemed fuller and more realized. However, I would have liked another couple hundred pages to slow down the pace and dive deeper into the world. I also have a bit of an issue with how patriarchal everything is. All of the main characters in the series have been men. Women pop up now and then but only have a line or two. Kate is the only prominent woman in the series and she is pretty much on the sidelines crying, kissing, or hugging. E [...]

    4. Veil of Reality was a great follow-up to Architects of Destiny. It's writing was clear and concise which kept the action intense. It was a fairly short book with a lot of heart and passion put into it. I really enjoyed this book as well as seeing the evolution of the characters introduced in the first one. It was full of twists and turns, a true page-turner. I recommend this book to any lover of sci-fi and good writing and I can't wait to see the conclusion of this trilogy.

    5. This book rocks! It has everything I've wanted in a sci fi space series. In this one we meet a new race of beings that threaten to end humanity. We also get a new hero who's powers surpass anything we've seen in the previous book. It's fun, adventurous, and leaves you guessing until the end.

    6. An excellent continuation from the first book in the series. It's now almost 2 decades later and Cris and Kate are married with a 14 year old son Wil. Cris is the Lead Agent of TSS HQ still working on diplomatic type issues with Kate acting as his First Officer more often than not and Wil is already a junior agent advancing faster than any agent before him.emingly ready to fulfill his secret destiny in the war against the Bakzen. But just who are the Bakzen, what is the relationship between the [...]

    7. Loving this series! The universe Amy has created is filled with action, and very well written. The characters just suck you in! I'm already starting book 3! I highly recommend checking this series out!

    8. The real beginning Book 1 was more if a prelude. This is where the story really starts moving with the son of the main character in book 1.

    9. I'm enjoying how the author has broken up the series, with the first providing a solid backdrop of the environment and the next introducing the primary protagonist. The series seems to be shaping up to be an interesting take on the "Ender's Game" concept, wherein the hero is notified many years ahead of time that he will be personally responsible for saving his race through complete annihilation of another species.

    10. Very Good Second Novel: Dynastic/Space Opera HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: BOTH THIS BOOK AND ENTIRE DYNASTIC SPACE OPERA EPIC Amy DuBoff has, in this second novel, written a story with the excitement, action, plot twists and enjoyable reading she managed with her first novel of the series. The storyline, as it develops, gives more and more information about the situation facing Wil and the rest of the human race.I did not like the fifteen-year jump between the novels. Wil, the son, is now fourteen years [...]

    11. The Veil of Reality is the second book of the Cadicle series, but it could also be read without having to read its first book (though I don’t recommend such). There’s no denying that I wasn’t really impressed with its first book, the Architects of Destiny, but this one totally hook me up!The focus of this book moved from Chris to his fourteen year old son Wil, who’s going to be the future of humanity. Yeah right? This book was so fast which I bet it’s way faster than to jump drive (lol [...]

    12. Solid 3 stars for space opera/fantasy genre.Disclaimer: I was provided a copy of this book by the author to review, after reviewing #1 in this series, Architects of Destiny. I wrote what I did and did not enjoy about the book, and the author suggested reading the second title to address some concerns. Both copies were complimentary.The first book was, at least to this reader, very similar to the first book in the Dune series, but with foci on areas that did not interest me as much (romance). Thi [...]

    13. In Book 2 in the series beginning with The Architects of Destiny, Kate and Cris’s marriage have united the heirs of two of the most powerful of the dynasties. They may now be in a position to politically influence the other dynasties in the future. As members of the TSS Command Level, Cris has risen to Chief Agent and is a major influence in the TSS. Kate and Cris’s son Wil has grown to the age of fourteen and has proven to be as strong as predicted. He has risen on the Bakzen’s radar scre [...]

    14. “Science Fiction At Its Best.”In this sequel to ARCHITECTS OF DESTINY, it has been two decades since we left Cris and Kate Sietinen. Their son, Wil, is 14 and shares their heightened ability of telekinetic powers, and shows signs of hidden strength that might prove beneficial to either side in the ongoing war between the TSS and the Bakzen Empire. A traitor within the TSS opens a doorway for a Bakzen team to enter the headquarters and kidnap Wil. Cris is given the ship, Vanquish, and penetra [...]

    15. This is the 2nd book in the Cadicle series. The first book introduced us to Chris Sights and his wife Kate, along with the TSS, the mystery of the priesthood behind the scenes pulling the strings, and the family owned corporations that control those items needed by the known worlds. It is 20 years later and their son, Wil, is the new genius child of the TSS with a higher potential for ESP. He is a young teen, a loner prodigy, and everyone wants a piece of him. In this book, he is kidnapped by th [...]

    16. The epic adventure continues! This book was even better than the first and surpassed my expectations! Cris is grown and established in his life with the TSS. Now, we meet the Cadicle of Destiny - his son Wil. Raised as the only child in a society of telekinetic adults, Wil is very mature for his age and has unbelievably strong powers. Kidnapped by the enemy Bakzen, he's enlightened to the true depth of the war between the species and his true purpose in life that he was bred for. Packed full of [...]

    17. I'm enjoying the story, but still having a few issues with the characters. Cris is much more enjoyable - becoming a father seems to have given him a personality, but Wil is a little wooden. Kate really gets the short end of the stick, she's boring and contributes absolutely nothing to the plot. She spends the entire book trying to solve this mystery, and then at the end she isn't the one who finds the answer. It comes out without involving her at all.These books are definitely good at leaving ju [...]

    18. So, the beginning of this book is set 17 years after the previous book. That was a bit off-putting at first. However, the book is still centered around a teenaged main character, this time the son of the main characters in the previous book.Wil is 14 and incredibly smart and talented, so much so that he is being pushed to do and be more. It's all sort of expected, of course, as his parents were both smart and talented, but there are other unseen forces driving his destiny. So, in this story we h [...]

    19. *I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for sharing my fair and honest opinion *After falling in love with the world Amy DuBoff crafted in the first book in the Cadicle series, I was excited to see what the near future held. You always worry about the second book in a series because, let’s be honest, they often don’t live up to the hype you create after you fall in love with the first book. I feel like with Veil of Reality, it was a wonderfully written book that takes several years p [...]

    20. Loved itI am by no stretch of the imagination an expert reviewer but who is? My five star rating is based solely on liking a good story. It and the main characters captured me immediately. The story wasn't perfect so take my review with a grain of salt. I so often see reviews that get low ratings due to simple grammatical errors. Even for the fact that the reader read something else from the author that didn't sit well with them. Not so with me. Ms. DuBoff told a story that drew me in quickly an [...]

    21. This second book in the series is much more complex than the first. The details of this universe are revealed slowly, pulling the reader deeper into the story with each chapter. Duboff paces everything so well that you reach the end before you get all the answers, thus the need to read book three. The main characters, although well within the standards for space opera heroes, have a uniqueness to them that is charming. I prefer Conan or Riddick though, they are not so sensitive and they don’t [...]

    22. Awesome read. Very creative writing. I am sold on this story. Too bad this last book is the end of wonderful ride.

    23. Even more intriguing than the 1st in the series, with an unexpected twist at the end to make sure that I will read book 3.
