VEILED is a STANDALONE paranormal romance and urban fantasy from the New York Times bestselling author of The Lie and The Pact.
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.
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.
This book. Where do I begin? How I have missed this series and these characters. Perry and Ada are some of my all time favorite characters. I still can’t believe that I’m getting another peek into this world! We even get to see some of our favorite characters from the Devil’s Metal series. I loved it. It was dark and spooky, but Ada was a brilliant character, and Jacob even more so. I love that new readers don’t have to pick up the Experiment in Terror books, although there will be some spoilers if you skip it. Still it doesn’t have to ruin the reading experience. This book was great from beginning to end, and I’d love to wax poetic about the plot, but I truly don’t want to ruin it for anyone just joining this author or genre. Suffice it to say that I loved Ada Palomino, and I loved the twisted darkness of it. Karina Halle is amazing at forcing tension into scenes, with a very subtle hand. 5 out of 5 stars.
