Publisher's Summary

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 18, 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.

Critic Reviews

"Nobody writes this genre as well as Karina Halle. In Veiled you have horror, romance, and humor, all mixed into a tale that will keep you reading, hiding beneath your covers, [and] giggling even as you tremble and quake." (Amy Harmon, New York Times best-selling author)

Underwhelmed

The story was fair, though I didnt find it in any way scary. I struggled listening to the narrative as I found it droning which I believe took away from the story. This wont be one I'll be listening to again.

Awesome book, interesting narration

The book was good, and right on par with Halle’s early works in EIT. I loved the story. The narrator though, she wasn’t terrible. She had great pacing, but some volume problems. It’s like she would go from speaking in a normal voice to whispering in the next. It was just this side of annoying, especially when I rode on the DC metro, and had my headphones turned up all the way, and couldn’t hear her whispery bits. It’s like she would start the sentence and slowly fade away, her own personal echo. Still, the book was good, and were it not for the narrator volume changes, the narration would have been perfect

Most Amazing Book!

First time listening to this author and I have to say..AMAZING writing. And to top it all off Jo Raylan as narrator is the best. I absolutely love her voice and she plays all roles perfectly.

Something is missing

I feel the story is missing something. The ending was left open for another book. I don't think I'll read or listen to any books that follow if that is case.
