Yes! My Dex has returned. I started counting down the moment to this books arrival WEEKS ago. Karina Halle's writing alone is enough to have me one clicking, but a book solely from Dex's POV, I'm almost at the point of bribing her to let me just get a quick sneak peek. What? Can you blame me? Yeah, I didn't think so. Let me just say that I love a book from the male character's POV. Ms. Halle writes Dex's POV with such verve that I forget that she is actually of the female gender. It's fabulous, astonishing, the BEST MALE POV I've ever read. Amazing.

Come Alive picks up right where Into the Hollow left off. Dex and Perry are dealing with the repercussions of their search for Sasquatch, while trying to navigate their new relationship. Unfortunately for them, part of that aftermath is having to add a new partner to their Experiment in Terror show in order to keep it on the air. Of course the new partner happens to be the peculiar ginger-haired basta. . .enigma, Maximus Jacobs. As you can imagine, Dex and Perry are less than thrilled. Max has decided the trio will return to his "hometown" of New Orleans and investigate a haunted house, which really turns into their investigating a voodoo sect. We are introduced to several new characters, and in her brilliance, Ms. Halle has brought over someone from her The Devil's Metal series. (You all have read that, haven't you? Well, here's the link, just in case: Of course Max, being the hometown boy, knows some of these characters, so I can't help but be cautious when introductions are made. Hell, I'm on guard when I find out Max is taking us to New Orleans.

Anyway -- sex, sex, SEX. Hot and steamy sexy times, all the times. Yeah, I get it, it's super popular now, it's what's selling, fans WANT it, so I definitely don't blame the author for doing this. But I have to say, this is not what made me fall in love with this series, in fact, I am having a hard time even recognizing it anymore. It seems to be heading down a certain road, and I think I might hop off before it gets too far down. Cuz, honestly? Those types of books are a dime a dozen -- a far cry from the original EIT books that were, to me, wonderfully unique in a kickass awesome way.

So this book was all in Dex's POV. Now for me, Dex has been one of the more memorable characters I've ever read. His mix of cockiness and vulnerability was done so masterfully by Halle, to say that I have always been intrigued by him is an understatement. He was a mystery, an enigma, you just needed to keep reading in the hopes of discovering the hidden depths of his soul. And what this full length Dex book has shown me is that, well, it ain't all that deep. Turns out this previously depicted mysterious, complex guy is just...a guy. Who thinks about sex, like, all the time.

As to the plot of this book - it was pretty good, once it finally got going (took awhile though). But actually, it's the characters that made me keep coming back to this series again and again, and now that I've sort of fallen out of love with them, I don't know if even the coolest ghost story plot line could reconcile that.

I thought Halle did an awesome job with Perry and Dex in books 1 - 5. Their characters were multifaceted, endearing (Perry) and sexy as hell (Dex).

Wow. Just Wow. Come Alive was the most anticipated book of 2013 for me! Karina Halle set a high bar for this one, especially after the insane ending of Into the Hollow. I can say without hesitation that Come Alive exceeded my already high expectations. Dare I say that Come Alive is my favorite in the Experiment in Terror series, thus far? Yes, I think so. Come Alive has everything Experiment in Terror fans have been waiting for - incredibly hot sex, an ominous setting, and answers to some of your most burning questions. This book made me violent, made me scream, made me cry, and turned everything I thought I knew upside down.

****This Review contains spoilers. If you HAVE NOT read the Experiment in Terror series, do not read on.*****

After all the drama, heartache, separation, and a certain Miss Anonymous that kept Dex and Perry apart for SIX BOOKS, I was overjoyed to FINALLY see them together, enjoying each other's company and adjusting to their new status as a couple (OMG!). I could almost hear a collective sigh across of all of EIT fandom. We finally got what we have been wanting from the first time Perry runs into Dex in that blessed lighthouse - Dex and Perry on the couch with Fatty Rab, just chilling in THEIR (squee!) apartment. I LOVED the Derry time leading up to the meeting with the auburn-haired snatchslinger. The ending of Lying Season demanded to be made right. MAKE IT RIGHT , DERRY! Boy did they make it right! They made it right on the elevator, against the wall, in the bed, in the shower, in a bar. Need I say more? I would be remiss if I didn't mention Chapter Four. HOLY FREAKING BATMAN! This chapter is one of my favorite chapters/moments from the entire series. Why, you ask? Let me just say this: alcohol makes Dex Foray misbehave.
