FINAL RATING: ★★★★★/★★★★★


Ladies and Gentlemen!!!! Karina Halle is a goddess! Goddess of drama, characters with depth and OF HORROR!! SHE IS A QUEEN OF EVERYTHING AND I WORSHIP HER!!!!

I was quite serious when i said that. Karina Halle is just perfect writer, her writing style is flawless, she always keeps my attention and she always makes me want more! I have one thing to say too: thank god i have a sequel, because the cliffhanger this book has is unbearable. Yes, you heard me: it ends with a cliffhanger, and i need to find out more.

I think this book is the best EIT book so far. It's an emotional roller coaster and it is one hell of a ride ;D

Never in my life had i been scared from books. Well, i was scared from Unwind but never like i was scared from Experiment in Terror series. KH's imagination is unparalleled and if it ever gets adapted, i would be scared to death.


Lying Season has started. Dex and Perry will be entangled in more lies than ever and it has never been so scary for both of them.


Dex has to face the fact that he loves Perry.

Perry has to face the fact that she can't have him.

Not while he is with Jenn.


And the new episode needs to be made... This time... in a Mental Institution. It is said that this Mental Institution is haunted, but no one ever had any proof recorded.

And it is placed in Seat­tle - Dex's town. Therefore, Perry is stuck to stay in Dex's and Jenn's home...

And with all this, they are faced with the greatest challenge: are they able to face the ghosts from their pasts?

"Everyone has ghosts that follow them throughout their lives. Ghosts of the past they wish they'd left behind, ghosts of love they once turned down, ghosts of regret and ghosts of loss. Ghosts of guilt. We all have them. I do. Roundtree does. You both do. And if you don't deal with your demons, they will haunt you for the rest of your life."

There are two parallel stories in this one:

✦ - 1 - Mental instituion:

Dex and Perry's next episode in the Mental Institution. And this time, Perry's and Dex's relationship gets deeper. They both love each other, but they are scared to admit it. And it hurts both of them. Even worse is the fact that Dex is already in relationship, and both of them have no idea how to do it right.

“If I thought I was head over heels for him before, this time I was so far gone, it’s like I fell into my own grave. Head over heels and down a whole. Bury me with dirt, stick a stake into my heart, and call it a day.”

And on the other side, we find out more about Dex's feelings, his past and his secrets. Same goes for Perry who dreams of her past.

“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.”

Major spoilers:

I am quite interested now, especially since i read message Clown Lady left them... What will happen when Dex's hears it?

And Perry.... i don't agree with what she did... ( when she messed up with his medication) but if she hadn't, she would have never known the truth... well, she could have, but overall, it was wrong .

I hope they fix their argue asap!

And i officially hate Jenn... especially her cheating on Dex, and not helping them when they were trapped. And the fact that she doesnt believe him about seeing Abby and ghosts.

✦ - 2 - Perry's past about one accident:

And to think they called it an “accident.”

Through the book, there are sequences with Perry's memories of one party. And of mysterious guy named Jacob, who needs her help. And then the weird stuff begins to happen, and the world is not as simple as Perry thought.

Before you venture into this book, i suggest you firstly read The Devil's Metal, which can answer some of your questions... and those who already read it before this one could connect the dots without any problems.

Spoilers: What i firstly connected was the person called Jacob... ad the demons... it seems this universe is the same as Devil's metal, especially since there are demons in Dex's and Perry's world too.


This book was the best so far, this series is definitely one of the best i have ever read and what i love the most is how Karina Halle is tallented to give us such complex characters and horrorish world.
