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!
No one, and I mean NO one has the ability to put the deepest darkest corners of our universe into literary form like this woman and I'm so thankful that this little slice of book heaven finally became reality. Lock your closet doors, grab yourself a bibimbap wrap and dive into this gem!! xo
Veiled is Ada Palomino's story - Little Fifteen from the Experiment in Terror series is now 18. She's weeks away from starting art school and suddenly all hell breaks loose...literally! Karina paints a story that will creep you out and may cause nightmares, but you'll also smile and swoon. Ada is haunted by demons and at the same time a mysterious and handsome cinnamon haired man with gorgeous blue eyes, keeps appearing in her dreams and in real life. Ada originally met Jay at her sister Perry's wedding a couple of years earlier and he made a lasting impression, why is he suddenly everywhere? You have to read the book to find out!
Thank you Karina for revisiting my favorite Portland family - the Palominos, I have missed them so much!! Buy this now & while you're at it, add the Experiment in Terror series to your to be read list - do it - you'll thank me later!
Karina Halle has a genuine gift for writing the creepy (but in a GOOD way). For keeping you up at night. And she totally delivers in Veiled. I really almost needed to sleep with the lights on, while keeping one eye open and focused on my CLOSED closet door (this will make more sense once you read the book). I have been WAITING (with capital letters, even) for this series ever since she mentioned the possibility of a spinoff series about Ada, or "Little Fifteen". And I had, honestly, pretty much given up hope. But this book, guys. Ada and Jay. It was totally worth the wait- and I really, REALLY hope this series turns out to be a trilogy, like originally planned (ok, I might even physically NEED it to be, for my well being, you know) because I have a funny feeling this is only the beginning of Jay and Ada's adventure, and I sure as hell (ha. pun intended) need to know what happens next...
THEME: New Adult, Romance, Horror
When Karina Halle finished the EIT series I was sad to loose the world and characters she created. But thankfully she didn’t want to completely leave that world, bringing back my favorite duo Dex and Perry but focusing now on Perry’s sister Ada. I loved the idea of the two sisters having to deal with the similarities in their ability to deal with the horror of monsters and ghosts. I loved Ada was fully introduced into what her sister had gone through, but that she had to deal with a different connection to the dead and evil.
Veiled follows Ada Palomino, whom has never really gotten over the death of her mother. She has tried to feel normal and get ready for her new start in design school. But her dreams are getting worse; she’s starting to feel as if someone is there in her room watching her. She also has been hearing her mothers voice; the voice is anything but pleasant. Ada confides in her sister, who has dealt with the evil that seems to be coming after Ada now. But Perry doesn’t want to step back into the horrors that she and her husband went through. Luckily Ada has a dream man who seems to be guiding her and protecting her. He also happens to be living next door. Together they have to stop the evil that never left and possible step into the Veil to find her mother.
Ada is just as awesome as she was in the EIT series, still very close with her sister and always bickering with Dex. But her dreams and connection to her dead mother are starting to affect her social life. Ada is very different from Perry, her love for her mom as well as guilt triggered a connection to the Veil, and they wanted Ada and are using her mother to get her there. I was absolutely creeped out with the fact that Ada was staying in her sister’s room, after everything that happened there. I’m not sure if that was her being brave, stubborn, or foolish, but I would not have stayed in that room. What I also enjoyed was that halle incorporated the father a little more. He began experiencing dreams, though his daughters protected him from the real truth. Then there is Ada’s new relationship with the mysterious Jay, her neighbor and dream man. He has a similar “job” as Maximus from the EIT series, but he and Ada become something more together.
Jay is trying to be Ada’s guide, teach her the limitations and protect her from the very things she’s actually trying to find. She wants t save her mother and he wants her to let it go. Ada is very head strong and eventually pushes Jay to a point where he can resist her in more ways than one. I loved their dynamic and the fact that they form an understanding of right and wrong when it comes to saving her mother.
Overall I loved everything about this continuation into the Veil and the EIT world I totally missed reading about. The romance, the super creepy ghost aka demons, the introduction to new characters and bringing the old gain back, was just what I wanted. Halle always knows how to make her fans happy and ask for more. I’m hoping we get more of Ada and Jay but I was also pleased with the ending, that if we don’t get more, I wont be freaking out with a cliffhanger.
