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
FINAL RATING: ★★★★★/★★★★★

and Jenn ugh -.-
In this book Perry and Dex have a project in Seattle to film and they also have the Shownet Christmas party Dex invites her to stay with him and Jenn..
They have to explore a haunted mental institute...
The ghost in this story is the scariest!!Ghosts with issues are bad enough but when you have a past with the ghost (the ghost is Dex ex girlfriend) makes it hard ..
The tension between then is out for everyone to see.The attraction between them is j...more
Dex continues to be inconsistent and hard to read while he is torn between his relationship with Jenn and Perry.
Lying Season has left me with my heart ripped out. My investment in Perry and Dex makes me feel disoriented mentally.
Everything has changed. Every
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
Best. One. Yet.
These books are undeniably addictive, and Lying Season is the most chilling and engaging one yet!
I truly love how each of these books uses multiple angles to play off a seperate, solid, recurring theme. In Lying Season, we are offered a plot that dances around lies and deceit—boldly allowing this story to live up to its name. We also get a sort of 'psychological thriller' feel, as it bravely tackles mental health issues. Its execution is seamless and creative, and swift...more
"I want you to stay with me," he said. "And that's the problem. Every time you leave me, I need you a little bit more."'
Oh. My. God. What just happened?! I need the next one and I need it now! I can definitely say that I am officially an EIT addict now though and am seriously glad I decided to continue with the series, even if it didn't blow me away at first! It's just gotten better with each book.
I did not want to put this one down! Lying Season is withou...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
***5 Scary Bloody Woman and Hot Perry Stars***
This review is gonna have to be short. Why you ask... because I must, and I mean MUST, read the next book PRONTO!! Holy friggin' cliffhanger!! I just can't wait any longer.
Perry goes to Seattle and stays with Dex and his girlfriend for a week because Dex was able to get permission to investigate a mental hospital there. Perry doesn't like the idea of staying with both of them at their apartment, but can't do anything about it since she doesn't have m...more
Okay friends, this is more of an update than a review! I'm going to take a break from the Experiment in Terror Series! *cue gasps from friends* Key word being "break". I am by NO MEANS done with this series. I plan to read a couple of books, then come back to these. I am 100 percent caught up in the story of Dex and Perry, but I just can't get aboard the Dex Foray train right now. Don't get me wrong, I get the appeal. He is a lovable guy who you can't help but kinda like. For me personally howev...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
Yes people that good!!!!!!! It has every thing and every thing is FABULOUS!!!
Spooky parts....if it scares you just read those real fast....a quick peek will not hurt you!
A bitchy girlfriend....some one needs to put her in her place!!!! One can only be nice for so long then it's ON!!!
Crush on a boy.....I love Dex too!!
I could go on and on but Dex and Perry are great.....every book gets better and I fall in love a little more each...more
This fourth book is on a mental asylum, which is believed to be one of the most haunted places in Seattle. There are a lot of ghost’s stories and legends of strange deaths. The official patient list is 33… but there are always the ones that not everyone sees.
And that never left.
The crazy ride continues but this time, the paranormal is the least of Perry’s worries. She has to stay for the week in Seattle… in Dex house… with his perfect little girlfriend, Jenn. Who is a bitch. (And I’m saying t...more
Ok *breathes deeply *, glad that i left that one out... So back to the story!
After that whole nightmare in the ISLAND OF DEATH (it will never be D'arcy Island for me), our kick ass and emotional dysfunctional (but sooo awesome) duo is after another case to shoot another web episode.
This time is in Seattle, Dex's hometown, where they're going to an asylum that never allowed any cameras before. So Perry goes to the city for a week, to shoot the episode, to meet some colleagues from the network a...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
THAT ENDING WAS ACTUALLY SO EARTH SHATTERING JESUS CHRIST I'M SOBBING SO HARD I'M SHAKING I DON'T EVEN! I NEED TO READ THE NEXT ONE NO MATTER WHAT!
“If I thought I was head over heels for him before, this time I was so far gone, it’s like I fell into my own grave. Head over heels and down a whole. Bury me with dirt, stick a stake...more
Finally I finished now I can take a breath. I'd been holding it for days it seems. Will these two nut jobs ever figure things out ? Will I ? I still don't know if they are really over the top crazy or if there are ghosties and demons ? *What a fantastic author- she hooked me deep and nothing is getting me free. I hate Dex and even Perry sometimes, they are so wrong that they have to be together. Right ? I strained my neck from shaking it so much in this edition to their screwed up tale.
Did it really end like that or my book was incomplete?
Thank God the sequel is already available! Off to read On Demon Wings now.
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
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG.... I can't believe I have to wait for On Demon Wings. This series is fantastic. The buildup between the characters starts with the first book and continues on through books 2, 3, and 4! I started reading Dark House a week ago...thinking it would be just another book, but noooooo...more
I feel very inadequate writing this review because there is no way I can fully express how amazing this book is. Every single word, every single line, every single chapter is pure gold. There is absolutely nothing I hate about this book. I felt scared, I felt happy, I felt...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
So quiet frankly I don't have any more time for a longer review. I have to get back to Dex and Perry because this book left us hanging with quiet a cliffy and I have to know what happens nex...more
So far, that is. I am...shocked. I am speechless. I am FLOORED at how good this book was. I was hooked from page one. Before this, Red Fox held the title for my favorite in the EIT series, but now this masterpiece has taken up permanent residence in my heart and stolen the number one spot. It might have even knocked Angelfall out of the running for the I-am-shocked-this-is-so-crazy-good award for the month.
I LOOOOOVED this book. I don't think anything I say or d...more
This book takes Perry to Seattle, where she spends the week with Dex and his girlfriend Jennifer at their apartment. Dex and Perry plan to explore one of Seattle's mysterious mental institutions.
I (like Perry) tried to give Jenn the benefit of the doubt but in this book you see that she is just an insecure, spiteful, and cold hearted bitch. There were several times during this book that I wanted to fight Jenn on Perry's beh...more

The daughter of a Norwegian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Vancouver, Canada with trolls and eternal darkness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadistic appreciation for freaking people out. Like many of the flawed characters she writes, Kar...more
