<— BIG HUGE NEWS my friends!! SURPRISE!!!! Veiled IS LIVE!!!! Tee hee!
“Hey, guess what! I wrote this book so many of you have been waiting for, the book I said I would never write, and here it is and it releases in eight days! The book is Veiled.
It’s a standalone paranormal romance and a spinoff of EIT. … Yes, it’s about Ada Palomino (all grown up at eighteen, going to college, so it’s technically New Adult)”
It’s true! A standalone spin-off from Karina Halle’s “Experiment in Terror” series will be released in just a few days. Best of all? You don’t even have to read the EIT series to be able to enjoy this one. And I must insist. PLEASE. Please jump into this world with me (even if it’s just through this book). I can’t wait to read this, and I just know (knowing Karina’s awesome stories) that we will LOVE it.
‘Cause y’all know I’m a HUGE Karina Halle fan (have read almost everything she’s written) and I’m an absolute “Experiment in Terror” addict. Dex is one of the true book-loves of my life, and I can’t help but go on an on about all of the reasons this series will hook you. It’s got the paranormal chills and thrills, the most intense, incredible slow burn (that will have you begging to PLEASE PLEASE let it happen… and it’s done SO right). And best of all? It’s got very human (and therefore, mistake-making) characters that we can absolutely relate to. From hilariousness, to rip-your-heart out “OH. NO. HE. DIDN’T!!!” moments. I’m serious. Insanely awesome series (and each book is better and better).
So what’s this book about? Here is the blurb:
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.
BUT!!!! You’re probably wondering a few things, and Karina is here to pre-answer your questions:
- You don’t need to read EIT beforehand and it’s not horror. In fact, VEILED is great for those that wanted to read EIT but, were still on the fence, or just haven’t gotten around to it, yet.
- It’s a standalone
- The release date is Thursday July 28th 2016.
- Veiled will be available in KU (Kindle Unlimited) as Karina wants KU to be exclusively for her paranormal and horror romances (but not her contemporary). However you can read by downloading kindle app (if you don’t have a Kindle).
- Anyone who likes Karina’s past books, or anyone who likes paranormal romance or urban fantasy will likely enjoy this one (in fact, Karina says: “I would venture it’s more urban fantasy than anything else…”)
- OH and for those EIT fans, Dex and Perry are in it. <— !!!!!!
Q: Is this YA?
A: No. The main character is 18 and there is sex, crude language and violence in the book. It is recommended for mature teens or 18 and up.
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: Absolutely not. Veiled stands alone. You do not need to have read the EIT series beforehand as this follows a different character (Ada Palomino) and a different storyline. However for those who have read EIT, all your favorites are in the book!
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.
