Summary: (Taken from Goodreads) Amongst the wasteland lies the gleaming city of Karm. A Camelot-esque utopia built from the ashes of a dying world. Seventeen-year-old Fallon is no daughter of Karm. She's its assassin. Raised by a secret society of rebels, she's bent on bringing down the king's sham of an existence. But her first mark, one of the king's top knights of the Force, makes her question everything. Even her heart. Novelette
My Review:
Unveiled by Trisha Wolfe was thrilling. That is one of the only words I can use to describe the world Trisha Wolfe has created. This book will have you on the edge of your seat from the very first page, to the very last sentence.
When I first heard about Unveiled, I was on Twitter. I saw one of my friends had posted a review of Unveiled up on their blog. I fell in love with the summary of this novelette, so I Tweeted Trisha. She then offered me a free copy—because she’s a pimp like that—in exchange for an honest review. As you can tell, I took her up on that offer. Am I ever glad I did!

From the very first page of Unveiled, I was hooked. This short story is told from the point of view of seventeen year old Fallon, a girl who was trained to be an assassin her whole life. Then, she meets Xander, a knight of the king’s Force, and also her first mark. The only problem? She makes for one crummy assassin when she can’t even bring herself to kill him.
Let me just start by saying: Wow. I expected for this to be good, but not great. It was amazing. I loved the two main characters, Fallon, our heroine, and Xander, our knightly hero. Fallon had a very unique voice. She was strong, witty, cool and confident; but not overly so. She had a vulnerable side while still being in control of her emotions, which I liked about her.
Xander was adorable while still being cool and tough. I think I fell for him before he spoke his first lines!
What I liked most about these characters was the depth Ms.Wolfe has given them. You can’t help but feel for them; living in a world where thinking outside the box is unheard of, and one wrong move could be your last.
I loved the Dystopian world in which Unveiled took place. It was dark, dangerous, and sinister. I also loved the historical elements of this novel as well. The ballroom scene which starts this story off was great, and the formal speech that the characters speak with really set this apart from others of its kind.
Romantic, deadly, and action packed—Unveiled is not a story you would want to miss. I don’t know how Trisha did it—she packed so much action, romance, and plot-line into such a short story—and it works. These characters are still so vivid in my mind—I need to know what happens to them!
Buy this book. Read this book and fall in love with it. If you don’t completely love this story after the first chapter, well—we’re through! I don’t know what could possibly be wrong with you.
Trisha Wolfe is an author to look out for, and I am so glad I had the chance to read this book. This was my first Trisha Wolfe book, and it most certainly will not be my last.
"I'm sure a man of your station has the girls falling all over themselves." I wedge my hands between me and the tree, gripping the bark. Then I arch my back, accentuating my curves. He takes a step toward me. "There have been a couple," he says, taking another step closer. "But none like you." -Unveiled

 I am excited to announce that Trisha Wolfe will be dropping by for an interview! More details to come!
