I did all of that, and more, while reading COME ALIVE. This was more than just another EIT book, folks. This was EIT on steroids. Everything was bigger and more intense somehow, and I do mean everything. The humor, the emotion, the creepiness, and OMG the sexiness! But then, that makes sense, doesn't it, considering the book is told entirely from Dex's POV and he's always been a larger-than-life character. You think you loved him in his novellas? You ain't seen nothin' yet! Dex is going to rock your socks off in this book.....and maybe rock you out of your clothes too ;)
But nothing ever comes easy for Derry (Dex + Perry, for those of you who don't know), and COME ALIVE is no exception. They are really put to the test in this book, in ways I never expected, and at certain points, I had to check to make sure I still had a heart, because I could have sworn it had just been ripped out of my chest. It hurt....but it hurt good.
The scare factor in COME ALIVE was particularly high for me, and not because of the zombies (although they were rather frightening). The bathroom scene....OMG *shudder*....I will never get up to pee at 3am again! What really got me, though, was seeing two big, personal fears of mine played out in scenes within the book. I actually hyperventilated at one point because Karina described an event so vividly, it felt like it was happening to me, not the character, and I couldn't handle it. I had to put the book aside for a minute or two and pull myself together before I could dive back in. Crazy, right? But that's a Karina book for you! She shakes up her readers better than any author I know.
Last but certainly not least, there's the sex factor. Whoa, mama! We're all familiar with pervy Dex, and while we've been teased with a few sizzly scenes between him and Perry throughout the course of the series, COME ALIVE is the first book we really get to see Bedroom Dex. Just thinking about some of the wonderfully sinful things he did makes my skin steam. Perry is one very lucky girl!
This book was epic, my friends. EPIC. It's a true game-changer (it even changed my mind about Maximus!) and I am so excited to see where things go from here! Can't WAIT for the next one!
First of all, I might say this more than once, but I don't usually read this genre of book. I enjoy thrillers and such, but something that is a bit more PNR or in that realm doesn't necessarily interest me. But Karina Halle has grabbed me and I will slowly finish this series if it's the last thing I do. I have fallen for Dex and Perry and I need to see this out until the end and see what kind of ghost, zombie, spirit, evilness etc they see and encounter next
This book is told in Dex's point of view and he is just a crass a$$ a lot of times, but you can still see how much he cares for and hungers for Perry. They are honestly made for each other, no matter the age difference (and honestly, she may act older than him at times...he's still a college student at heart, lol).
"You are a part of me, Dex. You're every part of me. Always have been. ALways will be."
We enter NOLA with Dex, Perry and our favorite ginger Maximus is back! New Orleans always has the feeling of spirits here and with the history of voodoo, music and food, we enter into a realm that is perfect and so now (even if this was written a few years ago, it still is timed well with what is going on in the world). This story is filled with some sexy times between our 2 lovers that took this long to get together (yay Perry and Dex) and voodoo spirits that bring out the zombies. Not only are our 3 main characters filming for their Shownet internet show, it seems that they are fighting for their very lives and livelihood and piecing together pieces of their pasts that will make their future.
..."said that I shouldn't worry. That there is only good from love. That our hearts are magnets. That we couldn't stay apart for long."
This story had love, fight and my heart thumping towards the end. I was scared and pretty much hyperventilating with anticipation of not being able to breathe. Ups and downs happen, but our characters still called SEattle home and I can't wait to see what next adventure they will take me on. 4.5 better and better stars
The scary parts are scary as hell. The voodoo juju and zombies is downright upsetting at points. Again, I am flipping the pages faster and faster when our hero is in some real trouble.
I stayed up late to finish, but fell asleep with a smile on my face. The Dex and Perry universe is very real to me. I want things to work out for them, but the obstacles are what makes this series so much fun! Can't wait to see what happens next. I can't wait for the next book Karina writes, EIT or not.
If you haven't started the EIT series - what are you waiting for?!?
