“I was so in love and enthralled with Perry and Dex.” ~Under the Covers

I’m not sure why I waited so long to get back into reading this series.  Well, I do know I was trying to be responsible and read my review books but…I was missing out!

RED FOX escalates the level of creepy horror just a notch from what we experienced in DARKHOUSE by mixing in Native American legends and skin walkers.  No ghosts here.

Perry and Dex now have a chance at filming their show with a bit more support from their Internet TV Network.  Dex’s old friend and ex-bandmate, Maximus, is sort of a ghost whisperer now and ran into a situation of a “haunted house” that he thought would be perfect for Dex and the EIT show.  But because the couple that owns the house is religious, Dex and Perry have to pretend to be married so they can stay there with no problems. Gahhh

The weirdness starts from the beginning.  Foxes on the bed in the middle of the night, rocks flying at the house and bird attacks.  That coupled with Perry’s dreams which always paint a grim future and you have a recipe for one creepy story.

But at the core, even though what they were there to film and research was interesting and creeptastic, I was so in love and enthralled with Perry and Dex.  We learn so much more about Dex in this book, and that perhaps is due to the fact he was off his meds.  I do know I have issues but boy do I love me some fucked up guys!  Dex is just adorable and that softer side of him needs to come out more often.  And for the Perry and Dex lovers, yes you will be very happy with the relationship growth in this book.  Perry herself has already shown such an improvement from the first book it was just shocking.

RED FOX definitely ups the ante in the EIT saga, the dangers are high and the emotions even more.  I can’t wait for what’s to come!

About Karina Halle

The daugh­ter of a Nor­we­gian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Van­cou­ver, Canada with trolls and eter­nal dark­ness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadis­tic appre­ci­a­tion for freak­ing peo­ple out. Like many of the flawed char­ac­ters she writes, Karina never knew where to find her­self and has dab­bled in act­ing, make-up artistry, film pro­duc­tion, screen­writ­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, travel writ­ing and music jour­nal­ism. She even­tu­ally found her­self in the pages of the very nov­els she wrote (if only she had looked there to begin with).

Karina holds a screen­writ­ing degree from Van­cou­ver Film School and a Bach­e­lor of Jour­nal­ism from TRU. Her travel writ­ing, music reviews/interviews and pho­tog­ra­phy has appeared in pub­li­ca­tions such as Con­se­quence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNo­mad Travel Guides. She cur­rently splits her time between her apart­ment in down­town Van­cou­ver and her sail­boat, where a book and a bot­tle of wine are always at hand.

I’m a 32 sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me) and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
