"Avoir, adieu, goodnight
I'm too wrong to get right

But I can't wait forever
I've always been alone
A fool believes he's clever

Don't you wanna go
Into the hollow?
I don't go alone
Aren't you gonna follow?

I live behind my eyes
Be sure to keep the surprise

I break what I've borrowed
That's why I always go
Alone into tomorrow

Don't you wanna go
Into the hollow?
I won't go alone
Aren't you gonna follow?"

This series is an addiction - because of deep character development and great story. And with all surprises it gives, EIT easily became one of my favorite series ever.

Another amazing installation!

Having survived their figurative and literal 'demons', Dex and Perry are now left sorting out the broken pieces in an attempt to finally define their relationship. Although the charming banter and sweet sexual tension return in full force, Into The Hollow takes on a more serious tone than the previous installments regarding Dex and Perry's unsettled connection.

Dex '2.0' is back and better the ever. Having gained an incredible amount of overall strength, Dex

This reread of the Experiment in Terror series has completely blasted through my covid pandemic reading slump. I am tearing through these books just like I did when I first read them seven years ago. And they still hold up!

I’m not super into the whole Bigfoot/Sasquatch plot line of this book, for me this book is about the ANGST between Dex and Perry and how they both are navigating how they feel about each other. So many great moments, I can’t wait to reread the next book!

After what Perry has been through in the last book, On Demon Wings, she's ready to get on with her life. The problem is she can't stay where she is. Luckily, Dex shows up and offers her a way out that she can't refuse...for now.

Finally....finally, things are getting better. Perry moves to Seattle just as I hoped only not quite who I hoped with. You just know that when Dex and Perry get into these predicaments it will only lead to drama. Well, this time, things are different. Perry is different

I cannot express how much I love Experiment in Terror series!!! Dex & Perry are THE BEST!!!

To say that I liked shocking development of storyline at the beginning of this book would be an understatement. I loved it. The one and only thing (person) that I kept missing in previous book in series was back and in full force. And I have to admit that I was swooning over the "improved" Dex most of the time. It was fun to read how Perry was trying not to be intrigued by him. And since I person

My favorite paranormal duo are off to debunk the urban legend that Sasquatch/Big Foot exist. The Canadian Rockies are where Sasquatch has been sighted several times. Since both of them passed through the The Thin Veil in On Demon Wings they now have new abilities which come in handy as they adventure out in the snow.

Perry moves out of her childhood home and in with Dex. She doesn't want to like or trust Dex with her heart. Indifference is how she deals with Dex. One problem with her coping mech

Absence makes the heart ACHE longer...and the Sept/Oct Nov release of Into the Hollow (Experiment in Terror #6) has never seemed so far away.

OH.MY.GOD!! Karina Halle has completely and utterly blown me away. The emotion and angst in this book is out of control! And God, I loved it!!!!! But despite this intensity, it also retained the hilarity of the previous books, as well as some fantastic character development and heaps of swoon. Apologies in advance for my long and overly quotey review, but you’re just gonna have to bear with me here, because I cannot help but gush.

This fourth installment is in the middle of the Canadian woods looking for Sasquatch. Also known as bigfoot. Yes, you read it right. Yes, Perry and Dex laughed too.
But they stopped laughing real quickly.

Dex finally realized his feelings for Perry, but she is still hurt after everything that happened and can’t give him another chance. Although, after the recent events, she knows that her only option is leaving her parents house and so, she goes live with him to Seattle.

Into The Hollow begins right on the heels of the last book, On Demon Wings. Normally that wouldn't be worth mentioning but in this case, I think it's particularly significant and something you MUST keep in mind while reading. But more on that later. First, let's catch up with Dex and Perry.

Karina has outdone herself with this one. I was really impressed with the number of times she worked in the word Twatwaffle.

But seriously, I REALLY liked Dex in the first five books but, after reading Into the Hollow, I freaking LOVE him. Yes, he is still cocky and kind of full of himself:

Dex: You know we could always make a clothing optional rule around each other. That way we'd always be naked and never have to do laundry."

Perry: "All right, Dex, quit it. You're beating a dead horse."

So Into the Hollow picks up right after On demons Wings and Perry had to get away from her parents house. The only solution?
Moving in with Dex...HELL YEAH!!

And with that comes the opportunity to give Experiment in Terror another chance. Only this time, they're not facing ghost or demons but chasing a urban legend.

Now, monsters do not exist, do they?
With Perry and Dex's luck, I let you think about it,ahaha.

6 stars. Of course.

Having just devoured this entire book in one evening, to say that I am feeling a wee bit shell shocked and emotional would be putting it rather mildly.

It is not a secret that I love this series. I have made quite the pest of myself by pimping it out to just about everyone I know. But, I can honestly say that with each book Karina Halle exceeds my expectations. Her talent as an author is just staggering to me. And I'm not just saying that as a gushing fangirl. I

Let me begin by saying... It was about time people! It only took them 6 books to finally get there!


Perry decides that after her latest adventures, she can't stay with her parents anymore and since she doesn't have a lot of option she moves in to Seattle with none other but our beloved Dex.

In order to make some money she decides to return to the show. Their first job is in Canada. Of course it doesn't go quite as planned.

Perry and Dex go looking for this...

"Bigfoot," Dex answered from his room.
"What do you want, Mr Foot?"
"Please, just call me Big."
I snorted. "You wish."
