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 invisibl

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).

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

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.

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.

I'm so excited to have finally given this series a chance. It's been a lot of fun already and I'm only through the first two! Karina Halle creates plot themes reminiscent of The X-Files and she has written two characters that have just about as much unresolved romantic tension (at least as of this point). This second installment: Red Fox has tons of suspense, mystery, humor, and moments of terror that had me glued. If this sounds interesting, make sure to check it out!

My favorite quote:

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

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.

“And with madness comes the light.”

After filming a show together in the Pacific Northwest, Perry and Dex meet up again to film a second episode of their show in the small town of Red Fox, New Mexico. Hoping to catch signs of a possible poltergeist on film, Perry and Dex realize they are in over their heads with possible skinwalkers on the ranch they are filming at.

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:

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.

Hallelujuah!!!! This book was WAY better than it's predecessor!!!!!!

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

They told me it would get better and I would fall in love with Perry and Dex.....I didn't believe them but now I'm starting to see things their way!!

So I would like to give you all a big Thank You for encouraging me to continue...

This book was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better than book 1.....sorry but true!!!

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

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.

The Experiment in Terror is the perfect series to get you out of your book slump. This series has the right amount of action, paranormal activity, romance and character development. Both Perry and Dex are becoming favorite characters of mine because they are so intriguing and very unique. These two are a perfect duo and I love their teasing and collaboration.

It took me long enough, but I've finally written this review. Albeit a merged one of book one and its sequel. Oh well.

To start off, I have to say that Red Fox is considerably better than the first book, Darkhouse. While the latter was quite creepy, the former had much more character development, sexual tension, things being explained (I’m still in th
