"The chemistry between Dex and Perry has never been hotter. The stakes have never been higher. The dialogue, internal and verbal, has never been sharper or as laugh-out-loud funny. I must give Halle some serious credit." - Bookish Babes

About the Author
Karina Halle is a bit of an enigma. A rock music journalist by day, she travels the earth searching for the next big metal/rock band to fall in love with. By night, she can be found writing her much-loved Experiment in Terror Series and having conversations with Perry and Dex in her head. Karina currently resides in Vancouver's West End and can often be found with a bottle of wine, listening to her music a bit too loudly. She wishes she could see ghosts like her characters do, but then again, perhaps they don't like rock n' roll.

Lying Season was another solid addition to the Experiment in Terror series. I am really fallen in love with the characters in this book, and can't wait to read how their journey will go. There were a couple of times I was annoyed with Dex, I just wanted to smack him and tell him to look what is right in front of him. My heart broke for Perry. I can't even imagine what she is going through, but the last chapter was pretty brutal.
The filming in the mental institute was really creepy. I have watched movies that took place in mental hospitals and it always creeped me out. Karina really knows how to make the horror aspect come alive in this series. The scenes have me on the edge of my seat and I just can't stop reading. As for Dex's girlfriend Jennifer... I really hate her, I already did but I do more now. I wanted Dex to get his act together, but I think there are still a lot we don't know about him. I just can't wait to discover all of his secrets. I do love how Dex and Perry work together. They are very protective and loyal towards each other. Book 5: On Demon Wings here I come!
Lying Season dealt a lot more with Perry and Dex than actually delving into a spooky mystery. That doesn't mean that there weren't some spine chilling moments... like gaining a whole new respect for wasps. *shivers* Readers were also 'treated' to experiencing Dex and Jennifer together... (can you hear the sarcasm from there?) Jennifer was, well... you'll have to 'meet' her to totally understand. Let's just say that regardless of how I felt about Perry and Dex's little tryst in Dead Sky Morning, by the end of Lying Season I was all for Perry and Dex being together. (For the record, that little tryst didn't bother me so much as it gave me hope.) Even though they seem to try to sabotage that happening every single time. *sigh*
As much was revealed in Lying Season as new mysteries were brought up. Readers learned a little bit more about Dex's past as well as Perry's. Not enough to be satisfying though. Most of the revelations just made me want to know more. Also, things were really left hanging for both of them at the end. And that's where my reading procrastination comes in really handy. I don't have to wait to pick up On Demon Wings. As a matter of fact, I loaded it on my Kindle by the time I was half-way through Lying Season. Right after that I also picked up Old Blood and The Dex Files because I was told NOT to miss the novellas in between the main novels.
I want to like Perry and most of the time I do, but by the end of the book I was a bit fed up with her. She's actively hoping Dex cheats on his girlfriend (again!) with her. Yet, she berates Jenn for maybe cheating on Dex, but we're given no proof that Jenn actually cheated.Then there's everyone rooting for Dex and Perry to get together and no one seems to care that he is STILL with Jenn. Not only with her, but got a new apartment and a dog with her. Then there's Dex. A grown man that can't use his words to sort out the mess he's started with the women in his life.
End one relationship before starting another. If Dex and Perry are meant to be together, fine. Great! I am going to start the next book and hopefully the bad triangle will wrap up and we can move on.
Thank you again Karina for writing some wonderful characters. These books will be read over and over again by me and the rest of your fans! Keep 'em coming!
To anyone reading this - I will not ruin any of the story line for you. Please give this wonderful series a chance. Sure there are some editing issues, but DO NOT LET THAT TAKE AWAY from the underlying story.
FINALLY we get these 2 in Seattle where Dex lives and in his own territory with Jen. I've been waiting for this and was not disappointed. It was definitely a pivotal moment in this series and one filled with ghosts, questions, confusion, love, hurt, a past and oh so much more.
"I want you to stay with me," he said. "And that's the problem. Every time you leave me, I need you a little bit more."
To make matters even more insane, their adventures take us to a mental institution. Can you say creepy?
Karina, where or where will you take these 2 (and myself) next? The tide is turning, but I know there is more. Will these 2 be open to the spirits that haunt them? Or will they give everything up for "normal"? It seems only normal is with each other.
"There is either us....or nothing at all."
