Red Fox (Experiment in Terror #2) by Karina Halle


With Book Two of the Experiment in Terror Series, Perry Palomino and Dex Foray trade in the stormy Oregon coast for the unforgiving deserts of New Mexico.

In the for­got­ten town of Red Fox, a Navajo cou­ple is tor­tured by things unseen and by motives unknown. Wild ani­mals slink through their house in the dark, a bar­rage of stones pound their roof nightly, and muti­lated sheep car­casses are turn­ing up on their prop­erty. Armed with a cam­era and just enough to go on, Perry and Dex travel to the des­o­late locale, hop­ing to film the super­nat­ural occur­rences and add cred­i­bil­ity to their flail­ing web­cast. 

Only their show has a lot more work­ing against them than just grow­ing pains. Tested by dubi­ous ranch hands, a ghost from Dex’s past, and shapeshift­ing decep­tion, the ama­teur ghost hunters must learn to trust each other in order to fight the most ancient of myths…or die trying.

“The truth is in the fire.” 
Another 5 Freaking-Supernatural Stars

And Karina Halle does it again…

Another creepy and twisted read, a horror scenario perfectly executed and highly accomplished. Hopelessly romantic and deeply sarcastic, despite the paranormal factor, this book (the whole series, really) is brutally realistic when it comes down to people, character development and feelings.

We all hide from our innermost thoughts and we all are scared to show the frightened kid, that still lives inside our soul and stare at the world in wonder.

"I know your deepest, secret fear." 

Experiment in Terror, goes on a trip in the desert and things are getting darker and darker. This story might not be as scary as the first but it still chills your blood and makes you glimpse over your shoulder and hope that you won't find anything looking at you. 

The unforgiving light of the desert gives a whole new twist and the fact that you can’t trust anyone, even your own eyes, or yourself is more disturbing than ghosts or spirits.

 Perry Palomino
Our heroine is jobless and more freaked out than ever. After the failure of the first webisode she is more confused than ever. She has awakened something inside her and she is in love…

"And with madness comes the light."

She knows that there is no way back. She has to face the music and hope that in the end she will be alive and stronger, with Dex, always Dex by her side.

Easily, one the most relatable character ever, Perry is tormented and abused, mostly by herself, but still innocent and quirky and funny.

Dex Foray
If the first book belonged to Perry, this one is pure Dex. The most frustrating, amazing, sexy, moody bastard. He used drugs to keep himself numb. In a twist of fate, their lack, might force him to feel, clear his head, and believe.

"For once, I can feel everything. Every emotion, every feeling, every sense."

Although isn't yet clear, I believe Dex is even more damaged and sensitive than Perry. Despite (or because) his blaze exterior, he tries to hide his torment and in a way that worries me, I think that he lacks the core of steel that keeps Perry sane.

And the man has secrets… Many… Deep and dark and others that he can’t help but share. I’m dying to unravel him and to know what the hell is going on in his handsome head. And I admit it. It was highly impulsive of me to buy all the next books in advance. Someone restrain me before I peak into The Dex-Files!!!!

Dex and Perry, forever entwined, bound by fate and each other's only salvation.

"I was hoping you’d come out and get me." I put my hands on my hips and cocked my head, pondering that revelation. "Well," I said, feeling truthful. "I’m always going to come and get you."  

Amazing and addictive, I can’t get enough “Terror”. Don’t hesitate, read them, but remember…

The show is just at the beginning;
