Lying Season (Experiment in Terror #4)
I can't think of a better way to start this review, than using my all-time favourite quote.
“I've never been afraid of ghosts. I live with them daily, after all. All the time the ghosts flit past and through us, hiding in the future. We look in the mirror and see shades of other faces looking back through the years; we see the shape of memory, standing solid in an empty doorway. By blood and by choice, we make our own ghosts; we haunt ourselves.” Diana Gabald...more
Me after finishing this book:
I was just blown away, shocked, impressed and...
Again, Karina Halle has managed to keep me enthralled from the moment I started reading this book until the very last page. I kept telling myself: one more chapter and then I REALLY need to go to sleep! But I was just unable to put it down and ended up finishing it in the early hours of the morning...
Lying Season is all about the past, about the demons that haunt you and about learning...more
'tis the season of the lie. Perry gets more than she bargains for when she travels up to Seattle to spend the week living with Dex and his uber hot and sickly sweet girlfriend, Jennifer. In their tiny Belltown apartment. Not that she's a sucker for punishment (well, maybe just a little), but there's a haunted insane asylum to investigate, as well as the company (Shownet) Christmas party AND a douchey rival ghost-hunting team that...more
5 Shocking Stars!!!!
I loved this book!!! Its my favorite one out of the series so far!!! I don’t think I can say it enough how obsessed I am with this series!!
My emotions are all over the place. I can’t believe that just happened. I didn’t expect this book to end the way it did. I’m literally heartbroken….
Short summary: Perry and Dex team up again for another ghost hunting adventure. Perry travels up to Seattle to spend the week living...more
Where do I even begin with this review?!?
I finished Lying Season in the wee hours of the morning (sleep? Who needs sleep?!), and now several hours later, I am still finding it difficult to put my thoughts together in order to write this review. It has been stated by several people that this series only gets better and better with each book, and that is definitely true.
Karina Halle's skill at creating a story that grabs you from the first page and forces you to ignore every a...more
I'm speechless...... *crickets*
Well that was my reaction at the end of this book. Not that I didn't absolutely LOVE IT!!!! Karina Halle is taking this story way beyond the limits of my imagination!!! And I'm loving it!!!!
Lying Season starts right where they left off after Dead Sky Morning. Dex and Perry have been back from the island of death now for a couple of weeks and bac...more
Lying Season is perfectly written book. I was absolutely amazed by the style of writing which sucked me in and I could not stop reading until I finished it all. Maybe I did not like all the events that took place, or things that were said in this book but I am sure it was inevitable for the sake of stor...more
Got a secret Can you keep it? wear this one you'll save
Better lock it, in your pocket, Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you, Won't tell what I said
Cause two can keep a secret, If one of them is dead…
Or at least on this one, more than one is DEAD!!!
I know I said that Dead Sky Morning is the scariest and best book so far.. I stand corrected, LYING SEASON IS THE BEST SO FAR!!!!
In this book, Dex and Perry are battling the most evil, wicked ghost they have ever encountered which...more
It was all sh*ts and giggles... then this book happened. If I'm going to draw up an analogy to what reading this book felt like, I'm going to have to pick the "getting papercuts all over the body then getting pushed in a vat of alcohol after" scenario.
There's something very raw...more
But let’s backtrack a bit…
Again, the focus in this book is very much the relationship between Dex and Perry as they continue their flirty, banter-filled, dri...more
What a roller coaster! I'm lost for words but I can just say that I'm in love with Dex and I have a great admiration for Perry. She's my heroine, I've got a girl crush, yes, I just said it, Perry Palomino you rock!
"“He was looking at me like he never had before. His dark brown beautiful eyes that were so familiar to me had suddenly changed. There was another layer there, this one filled with things I didn’t dare dream about. Longing, passion, lust...more
I need to breathe. Lying season was a roller coaster ride which literally took my breath away. Nobody would probably believe me but I think I this is my favourite book so far. I loved loved loved it.
It's Christmas time and Perry is invited to Shownet’s Christmas Party. This is all fine and good but she has to stay with Dex and his girlfriend during this time. Painful. At the same time, the Experiment in Terror team has to shoot the next episode in a mental hospital....more
WOW…the books kept getting better and better. Perry and Dex are default ghost hunters who document their adventures for an internet show. Lying Season, book # 4 was the best one yet…still scary, with load...more
Another fabulous tale from Karina Halle.
My first thoughts upon reading the synopsis for this one were "Oh. Dear. You are kidding me, right?"
I mean, we've heard about Dex's girlfriend Jenn a few times in the first three books. We've heard how hot she is and how much everyone lusts after her blah blah blah, including Dex (gag). But that was kind of okay because it was only talk; she wasn't right there in the picture. She was removed, vague, i...more
Haunted mental institution? What ghosts? Seriously, the creep factor remains intact. But for the first time ever in the series, it is completely upstaged as the tension between Dex and Perry reached unbearable proportions. Throw in bitchy little Jenn (why are she and Dex together?) in the mix and we get an ending that makes you want to kill someone (his name rhymes with sex) and th...more
Lying Season has Perry on her way to Seattle to film for her show Experiment in Terror at an asylum. So where oh where does one stay while in Seattle? With Dex and his girlfriend Jenn of course! Oy, is that awkward as hell? I tried to stomach along with Perry that increasingly precarious arrangement.
“Yep,” I said, pulling the shoes out of the box. His brows went to the heavens.
“Wow. Those are like…Jenn shoes.”
“These are not hooker shoes,” I said defensively.
“Well played,” he said.
Not only do...more
These two people are so broken and so lost and throughout this book we fall witness to all of this as it unfolds. This book is full of longing and yearning, full of hope and desperation. But most important of all, this book is filled to the rim with fear.
Yes, yes... don't you worry your little pants off. There's plenty of creepy, scary things that make you jump. The scare-level of...more
So, normally I try and put something together that might make some sense, but I just can't this time…. This one was FUCKING AMAZING!!! It hurt to read….it was TERRIFYING, but more than that…it was HEARTBREAKING. So now, I'm on my way to buy every nightlight and light bulb at the nearest hardware store. Then, I'm going to find out WHAT THE HELL HAPPENS NEXT??? Here are my thoughts in gif form…..
Ok, slight over reaction... but by the time i finished this book i was sat strait up and glued to the kindle, screaching blue murder!
My first 5 star rating in a while and by far the best Experiment in Terror book i've read to date. So much infact i think i will be putting book 5 to the top of my queue!
This book i think was 'less of the terror' & more of the relationship development between dear ol Dex and Kiddo Perry.
The terror element of the boo...more
Perry’s personal hell is in front of her. She has to go to...more
Seriously...What the hell is wrong with this guy? I just...I just...I wanna slap him so much my hands are itching. What an asshole! I know I say I don't like him in every book but in this one he was a whole new level of a jerk!*time for my favorite gif*
What happens when you try hard to let go of the past but the past isn't done with you? What happens when you prefer to lose yourself rather than face it? Can you live your whole life as half a person? And what happens w...more
Lying Season takes the action to Seattle. Dex has gotten himself and Perry a gig filming at a local mental institution. Even more terrifying though, Perry has to stay with Dex and his girlfriend Jenn for the duration of the shoot. Given how Perry is desperately in love with Dex, she knows this...more
I was so worried starting this series, thinking that I wasn’t going to be scared,...more
*blinks at you* Oh my glob! Though I still have my issues with Perry’s narration, THIS BOOK is what I needed, I think, to find some footing with Perry and Dex’s relationship. Seriously. It’s making me sw...more
I’m not going...more
*chorus* "Hi Tellulah"
It's been 4 books now. I'm out of control - breathless, needing my next fix, cramping tension, headaches from being unable to tear my eyes away from the books, my family doesn't see me anymore
I need help.
OF course not as much as Perry and Dex do. Much as I loved this book, there were time I just wanted to slap the 2 of them. Yell at Perry to just lay it on the line. Have "the talk". Especially if she wanted to be able to bleed out. But...more
Another great novel of the Experiment in Terror series, by Karina Halle.
It was a truly amazing read! I mean, who passes a haunted mental asylum story? Certainly not me!
In the fourth installment of the "Experiment in Terror" series, Perry goes to Seattle to crash to Dex's and Jenn's apartment. Yeah, I know. Bad Idea! Anyway, Perry is not a masochist. I mean, she goes there because she and Dex are going to film Riverside, a still functioning mental asylum/hospital which is -...more

**I love to read when I have a chance. I love making new friends, too. But PLEASE don't add me if you're an author just wanting me to read your book and promote yourself shamelessly. You should have more of a reason for friending me than THAT. Also, please don't recommend me books, I have enough on my TBR and not enough tim...more
