She just wanted a normal life.
He had other plans for her.
Would you go through Hell for the one you love?
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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I liked Veiled overall. It introduced me to a dark, paranormal world with intriguing characters. It has mystery, suspense, horror, and new-adult romance. The main storyline is filled with strange experiences, a mother in limbo, demons, and a trip to hell and back which was engaging and made the read worth it. Personally, I would recommend Veiled to readers who are already familiar with both of Ms. Halle's existing series: Experiments In Terror and Devils. If you read the book synopsis for Veiled, Ms. Halle stresses the opposite. So if you have read it or haven't read it, I guess you're safe. Enjoy! My favorite quote: "...the past doesn’t define us. It’s what we do here and now, today, that does. This world was built on second chances."
