I swear if she hadn't reached out to me and requested a review of her awesome new series, what would I do with myself? And more material just keeps on coming, new genres yet she's created worlds so original and entertaining that she's created her own genres! Which In my opinion Karina Hale's broke the mold! I cannot wait to read more of My man Dex, my homegirl Perry, Ada. And all the other fantastic characters in all the other worlds she's created.
Bottom line....you see a book written by this chick, Pick it up! No questions asked. Don't read the blurb. Just open the book and enjoy yourself! It's a given. Point blank period.(less)
Thank You Karina Halle for bringing this fan-fucking-tastic series to my attention last year...you Rock! ---------------------------------------------...more Thank You Karina Halle for bringing this fan-fucking-tastic series to my attention last year...you Rock! ----------------------------------------------------------------------
"Perry," he said quietly, his fingers trailing down the side of my face, "you'll never have to save my life. You gave me life. I never lived a single day until the first day I met you."
At the end of Lying Season...I was litterally D-YING!! Being a huge supporter of Dex and Perry's relationship I wanted to KILL Dex when he did what he did..while also realizing his utter remorse soon after! All the push and pull and whatnot with those two is what really makes this series quite feckin' entertaining. Add that to all the supernatural shit that goes on and you got a winner! On Demon Wings was definitely my favorite of the series! Even though I felt that way about each one....I still feel the same. In this installment Perry goes through a lot of ups and downs, trying the heal and create a new life for herself sans Dex. Still seeing ghosts and trying to have a more positive look on life, Perry faces her most challenging battle to date. Her lows were so great in regards to her heart break it was hard to fathom at times. Karina Halle does a fantastic job of making you feel the hurt then the next thing you know....BAM! Some shit goes down and you're like..."What the fuck?!". I know when I went to the kitchen to get some water last night...I was freaking the freak out!!
One of the things I loved about this book was Perry and Ada's relationship...it was good to see them start to trust each other and count on one another. I really think Perry should listen to her lil sis more especially in regards to a certain someone...but I wont name cuz Im not gonna spoil nothing;) Said someone is a complete douchecanoe(God I love that word) if you ask me....but whatevs!
All in all, Winner winner chicken dinner, I say! I loved every second of it and was scared shitless to boot! Anytime you're thanking someone for creating something that Literally made you almost piss your pants is saying something! Alls Im saying is read this series at night....see where that gets you! But seriously...READ THIS BOOK....it really is the most original, scary, most fantastic, dark and gritty series out there! BTW...That cover is sick and it makes so much sense now!
".......You have every right to hate me for this lifetime and many others. You have every right to never see me again. To spit on my grave. But tonight, now, I'm not going to give up on you or," his voice fell with weight, "die trying."

But can she survive bunking down in Seattle for a week with her partner (and man she secretly loves) Dex and his perfect girlfriend, Jennifer? And can she do so while being tormented by a malicious spirit from Dex’s increasingly shady past? With love and life in the balance, Perry must discover the truth among the lies or risk losing everything she's ever cared about.
My Thoughts: Book 4 in experiment in Terror....Perry is embarking on the most difficlt journey of her life. Meeting and staying with Dex and his girlfriend! Once she gets there the truth about Dex and Jennifer's relationship start to unravel. This is so far, the very best of the series in my opinion! Its filled with the same scary and emotional twists as the previous books but there much more, so much more. I cant really get into details about the surprises but I must say that I laughed, I cried, I got the living shite scared outta me and I loved every minute of it. You guys really need to get out and get this series! All paranormal and dark fantasy fans will dig this...I promise you. If not ur just crazy cuz Karina Halle defintely has a winner here...trust me!! I cannot put into words how much I loved this book...Im dying to read the next one. Thank you Karina for sending me this awesome series...your defintely won yourself a stalker fan!! If GR would let me give this more than 5 stars, I would in heart beat!(less)

A tiny, fog-shrouded island in the rough strait between British Columbia and Washington State has held a dark secret for decades: It was a former leper colony where over forty souls were left to rot, die and bury each other. Now a functioning campground, Perry and Dex spend an isolated weekend there to investigate potential hauntings but as the duo quickly find out, there is more to fear on D’Arcy Island than just ghosts. The island quickly pits partner against partner, spiraling the pair into madness that serves to destroy their sanity, their relationship and their very lives.
What else can I say but I absolutely loved it! Finished yesterday some time and am starting the next one directly after! And I must say that, I was scared shitless most of the damn time....reading this at night terrified me( in a good way)! If you haven't read this series....what are you waiting for?? You are really missing out! Seriously!(less)

With a marketing degree under her belt and a thank-less job as a receptionist she's just not happy! Perry's always had the feeling that she was meant for something but not quite sure what that is. She has these terrifying dreams about creepy man and is being stalked by some crazy clown lady. On a weekend away at her uncle's she stumbles across this lighthouse and feels compelled to go in there. The lighthouse is scary as hell and is well known to be haunted. While in her trek through the lightghouse she has a scary encounter with some ghosts and runs into Dex Foray. Some unexplainable things go on in this lighthouse and she has some great stuff on film. So she blogs about it....and posts the video's on YouTube. She gets quite the fan-base in blogverse and things start to fall in place for her. Then she gets a call from the egnimatic Dex Forray and he offers her an oportunity to be host on a internet show with him to go with the story she wrote about her encounter at the lighthouse. So off they go....Dex and Perry, back to the ominous lighthouse or "Darkhouse".
This was an awesome, scary, dark and gritty tale that I just got sucked into. Iv never read a story such as this one. The whole asepct seemed so real to me. Like most Dark Fantasy or UF books out there you always just believe the story...believe where the narrator is taking you. But this felt so real to me and many times I questioned....is Perry really seeing this?? Is she crazy? That being said I just found a new series to obsess over. Perry is complicated and kicks total ass. She also has great taste in music! And then there's Dex...he has this crazy, wonky, Jonny Depp/Robert Downey Jr thing going on. Very ecentric in a very sexy way. I swear fans of Dark Fantasy will love this series and the sexual tension between Dex and Perry is smokin'. Please guys...read this damn book! You won't be sorry!(less)
