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: ★★★★★/★★★★★

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
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
"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
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
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
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
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
I know this won't be a popular opinion (there are only 14X 3 star ratings and even LESS for 2- and 1- stars), but I'll just cut to the chase: this book was a disappointment to me. The thing that has d...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
The plot thickens and shit gets real.
The creepiness continues and I thrive in it. I never liked creepy stuff much, at least not in books. These though, they have changed my opinion. This series just keeps getting bet...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
