She just wanted a normal life. He had other plans for her.
VEILED is a STANDALONE paranormal romance/urban fantasy (think a contemporary romance with supernatural elements, like the show Supernatural, but with hot romance and no bromance!) from the New York Times bestselling author of The Pact and Sins & Needles
Death. It's something that Ada Palomino has always known so well, having grown up in a house of horrors, surrounded by a family plagued by ghosts and demons and things that go bump in the night. But after the sudden and tragic death of her mother two years ago, death has never felt so personal. Or so close. Now eighteen, Ada is trying to move on with her life and the last month of summer holds nothing but sunshine and promises with her first year at a Portland design school just around the bend. That is until her increasingly violent and realistic dreams, dreams of other worlds, of portals and veils where her mother is tortured and souls bleed for mercy, start to blend into reality. Ada has to lean on her older sister, Perry, to try and make sense of it all but even then, she's never felt more alone. Then there's Jay. Tall, handsome and deeply mysterious, Jay would be just another stranger, a familiar face on the bus, if it wasn't for the fact that Ada has met him before. Every night. In every single dream. And the more that Ada is drawn to him in both worlds, the more she's in danger of losing everything. Including her heart. And her very soul.
QUESTIONS ABOUT VEILED:
Q: Is this YA? A: No. The main character is 18 and there is sex, crude language and violence in the book. Readers sensitive to those components may not find the book suitable. If you are a reader who doesn't like a lot of the "F" word, this is your warning....
Q: Is there a cliffhanger? A: Nope! There's also no cheating and no love triangle (think I've covered the bases there!)
Q: Do I need to read the series (Experiment in Terror) that Veiled is a spinoff of first? A: Nope. Absolutely not. Veiled stands alone from that series. Don't listen to anyone say otherwise. EiT fans are very passionate about their series and want to share the love (and I love them for it) BUT Veiled was written specifically for those people who haven't read EIT. And furthermore...most importantly...IF you do decide after reading Veiled that you would like to read EIT, then I promise, promise, promise that your enjoyment of that series will not be spoiled or compromised. Trust me on this. EIT is too epic of a series to be spoiled. PS if you are a passionate EIT fan, Veiled is a great starter to get people interested in this whole "world." Also, all your favorites do appear in this story as it takes place right after Dust to Dust.
Q: Is it horror? Your other series was and I don't handle scary very well... A: No, it's paranormal romance (though I promise you there are no vampires or werewolves), and while there are creepy elements to the story, it wouldn't be classified as horror. You'll be fine.

You know that feeling when you wait forever for something and the final product leaves you disappointed because you hyped it up so much? Yah. This ISN’T one of those times!!
I waited YEARS for this book. YEARS. Karina Halle said she wasn’t writing it. She’s evil. Tortured me with one sample chapter a while ago on a website. Then….nothing. Until now. For those of us who follow (ahem *stalk*) her on social media and various other locations, the surprise of a lifetime came when she started updating chapters about a month ago. OMG. Then, the announcement of the book.
Okay, here’s the deal. This is a paranormal book, with some sexy times and humor thrown in. If you’re a fan if her Experiment in Terror series, you’ll see some familiar characters. If you’ve read The Devil’s Metal or The Devil’s Reprise, same thing. If you’re expecting the same thing from EIT, you shouldn’t. Ava isn't Perry, Jay...
So good. So, so, so good.
EIT is one of my favorite series of all times. Dex and Perry? Ada? Those wonderful gingers? All of the yes. So, of course when I first found out years ago that we would get Little Fifteen (now Veiled for those not in the know), I was pretty much dying from excitement. Then it got postponed indefinitely. I'll admit that I little part of me died when I found out despite the sound reasoning behind it. I'm not going to fault a writer for not being ready to write. So, needless to say when Veiled first showed up on Wattpad, there was a crazy mix of excitement with a little bit of freaking out. How in the world was this going to compare with something like EIT?
Let me tell you that it does. Is it the same? Of course not. Ada and Jay more than hold their own. It still has all of the creeptacular (hello.. the Nun) scenes that you would expect from this world, but the undercurrent behind it is different. It feels different. It's Little...
This is probably the longest I've ever had to sit and think about how I want to word a review. It was everything. Period.
After reading and re-reading the entire Experiment In Terror series (If you haven't read it, go. Do It Now, because your life depends on it) and** The Devils Duology (these two will extend your mortality as well), I feel like I've been in limbo for-EVER waiting for Ada's story. Once again, like always, Karina did not disappoint!!
Incorporating old characters with new, Karina was able to "feed our PNR need" for all things dark, ginger and Palomino, while shaking things up and giving this spin off it's own very unique feel. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would connect with Ada on the same level I did with Perry, but I was wrong! SO wrong. Little Fifteen has finally come into her own and what an amazing woman she has become!
