<— BIG HUGE NEWS my friends!! SURPRISE!!!! Veiled IS LIVE!!!!  :D Tee hee!

Karina says:

“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)”

eek *squeeeee!!!*

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 Terroraddict. 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.

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.

*ooooomph!!!!!* MINE!!!

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. <— :D !!!!!!
Veiled Q&A

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.

Michelle F July 20, 2016 at 11:05 PM

I’m soooooo excited to read this book! I loved Ada in the EIT series and how her relationship with Perry changed and developed as Ada sort of came into her own. I feel like we just scratched the surface of Ada’s strength and I’m so looking forward to her story!

Teri W July 21, 2016 at 2:08 PM

Woohoo! I freaking loved EIT and can not wait to read this, Karina is one of the few authors I follow on FB and email and when I saw the blurb for this book I could not for anything remember who Ada was. Aha! The sister! I loved that character and the relationship between her and Perry. Yayyyyy…

MichelleS July 22, 2016 at 7:37 AM

Karina Halle + EIT terror spinoff? yeah. Okay. enough said. Can’t wait. Dex is still one of my all-time favorite little guys. heehee. I loved that he wasn’t Mr. Muscle 6 foot 5. And his mustache. Karina writes GREAT MEN. And her female leads are awesome too.

Jill July 22, 2016 at 8:27 AM

I hope that the author is seeing all these posts from fans of EIT. She has stated that she has heard from hundreds of fans that do not like the wait in between books in a series, and they prefer the stand-alone format of novels. To each their own, obviously! I on the other hand continue to LOVE the EIT series, having reach each book more than once. Waiting for the next book in the series to come out was a bit nail biting…but the anticipation of the next installment in the series was part of the THRILL for me. I will continue to read every book she writes, no matter the genre….but for me, EIT still rules :-) .

Nicole July 27, 2016 at 3:08 PM

Ok, I am confused…can I just buy this on amazon for my Kindle? I don’t currently do the kindle unlimited and wasn’t really intending to.

Jill R July 27, 2016 at 4:43 PM

Hi Nicole- I had the same question! Yes, the book will be available for purchase on Kindle…it would just be “free” as part of the subscription to Kindle Unlimited, if you had that plan.

Jill July 28, 2016 at 6:59 AM

So…went out on Amazon today and tried to purchase- but I’m not finding it available. Anyone else having any luck?

Julie C July 28, 2016 at 7:06 PM

Do you know who else appears in this book? Dawn and Sage from The a Devils Metal

Lola July 28, 2016 at 7:09 PM

Finally!! I have had this on my radar for a long time now and have been in withdrawl ever since EIT was completed! Already one-clicked!! Woo Hoo!!

Maryse July 28, 2016 at 7:17 PM

SO COOL Julie!!!! :D

Shane Mohmand August 16, 2016 at 7:43 AM

If paranormal is not usually your thing, then I urge you to take a chance on this book because sometimes you just need to take a leap into the unknown and escape from reality for a while, and you might just fall in love with Ada and Jay as much as I did.
