Much like the haunted town of Red Fox, this book is filled with chills, laughs, intrigue, and suspense!

Now that the events of Darkhouse have been aired, the "Experiment In Terror" web-series has become a smash hit! Well...maybe not quite a hit...but at least it hasn't been canceled...yet! Now Dex is taking Perry to the haunted Indian reservation of Red Fox to investigate the mysterious occurrences there. Animals have been seen behaving in bizarre ways. Rocks are being hurled by apparently invisi

Sorry. I HAD to use that gif.

I read the first book in this series just a few days ago and had mixed feelings. There were some editing fails, weird turns of phrase, plot holes, and I had no idea how I felt about the MC or the male lead.

You know what’s awesome? Picking up the second book and finding that all the things you complained about have either been removed altogether or toned waaaaay down.

The biggest difference for me was Perry. I hate to say this, but when a story is told in first pers

I'll admit, it feels a bit dumb and a tiny bit egotistical to be reviewing your own book but I did it to the first one, Darkhouse, so I might as well leave one for Red Fox. Especially since I like this book a lot more than Darkhouse. Don't get me wrong, I love my first book to bits, but I want to marry Red Fox and have its babies (and I don't even like babies).

And Karina Halle does it again…

Another creepy and twisted read, a horror scenario perfectly executed and highly accomplished. Hopelessly romantic and deeply sarcastic, despite the paranormal factor, this book (the whole series, really) is brutally realistic when it comes down to people, character development and feelings.

We all hide from our innermost thoughts and we all are scared to show the frightened kid, that still lives in

Perry and Dex in this book have to discover what is going on at the Red Fox,a town located at Mexico.

Do you find ghosts scary?

Can you belive that a cute fox could scare the hell out of you?

In this book they dont chase ghosts but they are trying to figure out who is the skin walker.

Why are the animals acting crazily ?

In this book we are also intodused Maximus , Dex's old friend.
I didn't like him because he had a big mouth.

So the creepiness continues….

In this book, Dex and Perry are off to the boonies in New Mexico to a town called Red Fox where they are checking out some stories of a possible haunting. Problem is ghosts don't usually throw rocks and definitely don't mutilate sheep, so what in the heck is going on? Maybe Dex and Perry are in over their heads with this one.


Well, the "scary" story is a bit different in this one and I may be in the minority by saying that I didn't feel it was as scary as the Darkhouse. The hauntings have to do w
Welcome to New Mexico, where old legends still live and strange phenomenons occurs every day.


In this second installment Perry and Dex are going to New Mexico, more exactly to a small town called Red Fox, where strange events are happening.
Wild-behaved animals, people that know more than what they tell, things that aren't what they seem to be and the already crazy events get even crazier in the moment they arrive.
And they have no idea what are up against or even how they'll get out of that situ

Red Fox was just plain old fun!

What makes this story so addictive is the unique connection Dex and Perry share. There is no solid romance to speak of just yet, but their bond is slowly evolving into something powerful...and I'm anxiously anticipating its arrival!

I'm always going to come and get you.

In this installment, Dex and Perry pack their bags and head to New Mexico determined to film so-called poltergeists that have been haunting a Native American couple. Although Dex made somewhat

First and foremost this book had me at the name, Red Fox . I mean how could I not love a book with my name for the title?!

The famous duo are back together for the making of their second video blog series. They leave the Pacific Northwest for the heat of New Mexico. They are invited to film the 'evil' thing that is tormenting a local farmer.

Perry's affinity for danger following her everywhere she goes does not disappoint in this book.

I almost gave up half way through book 1 but thanks to all my goodread friends I pushed on and finished!!!

On this episode of Experiment in Terror, Dex and Perry are called to Red Fox, New Mexico to investigate a report of a haunted ranch. Not only haunted, but bombarded with night time rock hailstorms and overrun with wild animal sightings...inside the house.

Believed to be the work of something called a skinwalker, the entity feels evil to Perry. Skinwalkers are said to be violent and malevolent beings, a legend of many Native American tribes. These are not nice creatures.

"I felt Dex roll over on top of my body and cover me. It was touching. It was useless. But at least I knew he'd do anything to protect me. Even when all hope was lost."

This sure was a bit of a WTF-read! Sheez, talk about a spooky storyline. I mean skinwalkers? Ooh. I definitely liked this one more than Darkhouse and I thought it was real interesting learning more about the Navajo! I seriously can't wait to see what the next

the second installment to the experiment in terror series turned out to be just ah-mazing as the first. with fires,tribes and coyotes...this book easily became one of the most captivating mystery of the year,so far, to me.

I think I'm in love with this series . Perry and Dex are back and they are definitely kicking asses , oh and btw they are getting theirs kicked too and that being said - all the way in New Mexico ! This book was so full of surprises .

I'm incredibly conflicted about this book, and this series as a whole so far. I liked Perry in the first book. I understood her. She's insecure and unsure of herself, but at the same time she's not going to let anything - including herself - hold her back. I could relate. In Darkhouse Perry was straight-forward, honest, no-nonsense, and pretty sarcastic. What she wasn't, overly, was too-stupid-to-live.

I can't say the same for Red Fox. Perry made one stupi

"The truth is in the fire."

The first episode of Experiment in Terror was not a complete failure, but not a success either. The show has not been canned... yet. Dex is contacted by an old "friend" to ask him to head over to a ranch and investigate the activity going on there. He accepts and so Perry and Dex head over to Red Fox, New Mexico to see if what is happening, could be about poltergeists. They were dead wrong. There is also one thing they need to
"So many secrets, so many blind eyes."

Another fabulous installment from Karina Halle! Once again, I have to say this author is just brilliant. I have such high respect for the way she puts words on to paper. The way she is able to bring the words to life, and paint a picture with them is just breathtaking! Right from page one I was hooked with this description of a fire:

"The parched air swarmed furiously with sky-seeking embers that spanned the spectrum of orange and yellow. They emerged from f

In the second installment in the EiT series, our favorite ghost-hunters are back for another round of heart-stopping, thrilling adventure. This time Perry & Dex made their way down to New Mexico!

The end of this book actually made me teary. WTF? That was totally unexpected.

It's 2am and I'm exhausted from my marathon reading session tonight, so I will keep this short and sweet.

I feel like I know Perry and Dex so much better now. And I especially loved seeing the more vulnerable side of Dex this time around. Yes, there were times when I thought Perry made some dumb decisions and I wanted to shake some sense into her. But more often than not, I felt empathy for what she was going thr
I do think this series should came with 3 warnings :

* This is scary stuff. Maybe you shouldn't read it while home alone and at night*

* Highly addictive series!!! You will just crave for more *

* You'll love Dex and Perry dearly but without a doubt, You'll have a HUGE crush on Dex...just no way around it*

3.5 stars but rounding up because you don't own me.

No spoilers and colorful language abound!

When I get wind of an already established series that I should be reading, I systematically avoid every single thing posted about it. I'm so thorough about this that I often have little to no idea on what it's even about. Halfway through Darkhouse it was brought to my attention that there is already 8 books published, with a 9th on the way and smattering of novella
Book 2 in the Experiment in Terror series brings us more creepy, spooky stuff, more heart-racing action and, most importantly, more Dex and Perry! And it’s all awesome!

There’s a bit more focus on Dex’s character in this one. We get to see more of his tortured side, and learn a little bit about his past, and some of what he has been through to make him the way he is. And it’s all so sad! My heart broke for him. But I loved seeing him open up a bit more - “Perry ... I was hoping you'd come out and
Very rarely does a series come along that completely pulls the reader in to the story in such a way that creates a reading frenzy. By reading frenzy I mean, being unable or incapable of putting a book down. By reading frenzy I mean having to immediately buy the next book in the series — and I mean immediately upon finishing a book in the series.

I'm only in the 2nd book but dear god this is sooooo good!

Perry and Dex... seriously...

BUT the two of them... *sigh*... the journey through the book...

I'm glad I didn't give up on the series after the Drakhouse. I did have few issues with it, but I liked it much better than the first book, and it made me want to read the next one.

I think the only reason I didn't like this book as much as the majority of readers is because I didn't find the whole shapeshifter-thing very interesting *whispering "I have read better ;-)*
But, the book had enough interesting things going on to keep me guessing. The whole mystery surrounding Dex was very intriguing,

I don't have time to review when I have so many more of these books to read! SO FREAKING GOOD. I love Perry, and I adore Dex. There's no other way to describe this series: I'm either embarrassing myself by laughing hysterically out loud (see the quotes in my comments), or I'm freaked out and chewing my fingernails. This book has my anxiety skyrocketing (but then solves the problem in the next breathe). Absolutely l

“Dex,” I whispered.
“Mmmm?” he grunted.
“I hope you never stop feeling alive.”
I could have sworn his heart skipped a few beats. He tensed. Then relaxed.
“As long as you’re around,” he said softly, “I’ll be alive.”
