I thought maybe, Ms. Halle had set the bar too high with Red Fox-I mean seriously, how do you out-creep skinwalkers, demonic animals and an abundance of mis-trust?! But she's done it, boy has she ever. Dead Sky Morning not only ramps up the chills, the terror, the edge of your seat anxiety, but it brings the relationship between our dynamic duo to a whole new level-a totally different playing field, and not always in a good way. Completely isolated on seriously haunted island, surrounded by things that go bump in the night-and day-with no one to rely on but each other, the one person they each trust beyond all others, gets put to the test. The island not only makes them question their sanity, but it makes them start to question each other, and slowly they start to turn on one another just when they need the support the most. That was one of the hardest things to watch.
~I didn’t want to feel guilty about this. I needed to remember that he wasn’t innocent. Even though he should know better, he would rather think I was crazy than think I could actually be seeing ghosts. That said a lot about how he felt about me.~
Perry broke my heart in this book. She is as strong and willful as ever-sure she's scared out of her mind half the time, but she never backs down-that is my definition of courage. But she's also incredibly fearful of her abilities-what if Dex starts to question her sanity? What if they try to lock her up? What else is hiding in the shadows waiting to pounce at her?? She's also trying to deal with her feelings for Dex. The more time she spends with him, the further she falls in love with him-knowing she can't have him, knowing he belongs to another, knowing he still keeps things from her, and completely unsure of how he really feels where she's concerned. He's so very good at keeping a tight leash on his emotions. Sometimes she thinks she sees something in his eyes, reads something from his words, but with Dex being Dex, it's hard to tell when he's being serious or his natural flirty, sexual innuendo laden self. I've never hated a game of truth or dare more-what a wickedly heartbreaking bombshell!
Dex as always remains mostly a mystery. With every question about him we get answered, three more crop up. I am seriously starting to think we will never get to the bottom of who he is. I would kill for just a small glimpse into his mind. What he's really thinking, how he really feels, what is going on in there?!
The ever evolving relationship between the two takes some pretty heavy turns in here, but they aren't always good ones. Every time I think we're getting somewhere, something else pops up to block their path. The tension, the sexual chemistry gets stronger by the day and will eventually come to a head-I'm just not sure if the impending explosion will be a good one, a great one, or a devastating one. These two have been through so much together, saved each other's lives countless time, lean on and rely on each other more than any other. Add in everything going on around them and it makes for one hell of a read. As always, I recommend reading this with what I have come to dub as the 'EIT Survival Kit'.
1-Bright lights, or at the very least, a few night lights.
3-A blanky, or teddy bear. Something comforting and soothing.
4-A very large watchdog. Or in my case, a 13lb snuggler.
But most importantly-READ THIS SERIES. It's a must for all horror/paranormal lovers.
~My heart started to jump around sporadically, my nerves were on fire. I loved and hated it at the same time. I hated what he was doing to me, but I loved him. I hated my feelings, but…I loved him. I hated that he could just look at me like that and I couldn’t think of anything else.~
Also Dex and Perry are very intriguing and complex characters. I really enjoy getting to know them better, and especially Dex, because the book is told completely from Perry's POV. So there were a couple of secrets told from both sides, and that made the bond between them stronger. They really care for each other, even though some ugly things were said in this book. At the end of the day, they can really depend on each other. Haven't read about such an awesome duo in a long time.
Do you enjoy snarky characters? How about smart, witty characters with low self esteem? Maybe an ‘on again/off again’ forbidden romance floats your boat. If you can also handle more than a few ‘pee your pants’ worthy scary moments then Experiment in Terror is the series for you.
Okay, I may be exaggerating a little, but not much. Dex is probably my favorite character in this series, but I admit he drives me nuts sometimes. There’s obviously a lot more to him than readers have been clued in on so far, so I’m willing to cut him some slack. Perry on the other hand… Since this book is told totally by her POV, readers spend a lot of time in her head, which is both good and bad. I like Perry, but I spent a lot of time reading Dead Sky Morning wanting her to get some backbone, tell Dex what was really going on and gain a little… something. *sigh*
As for the story… saying I loved it would be admitting that I like having the crap scared out of me. Although I love nature, I wouldn’t call myself the ‘out-doorsy’ type. Even so, this book pretty much guaranteed that there will be no camping whatsoever in my immediate future. I may not be reading any history books that detail events that happened in my local area either. Just to be safe. I think it probably goes without saying that Karina Halle has a rather disturbing knack for bringing the past alive and not in a very good way. *shivers*
Aside from my obvious character issues, I’m loving this series. Although I’m sorry I started late, I have the advantage of not having to wait for the next book. Which is a very good thing. Even though Dead Sky Morning didn’t end in a cliff hanger, it definitely left me wanting more. I’ll still wait just a little while to pick up Lying Season to give myself a couple of nightmare free nights. ;)
