“DEAD SKY MORNING was a complete mind f*ck!” ~Under the Covers

BE WARNED!!  Fangirl gushing is about to begin!

OMG OMG OMG If I could just write a review with OMG and F****cking Awesome then that would be it for this book.  Because it was OMG F*****cking awesome!

DEAD SKY MORNING is full of nail biting suspense, mixed in with just the right amount of forbidden love.  But it’s all wrapped up in creepily awesome story that completely blew my mind!

Dex and Perry go to D’Arcy Island to investigate the ghosts of a leper colony, that has been said haunt the island for many decades.  As if leper ghosts aren’t enough, there were also some missionaries who died on the island and maybe some of their stories haven’t been told as they were.

Of course Dex and Perry attract them right away!  From gross, to creepy, to plain out scary.  DEAD SKY MORNING was a complete mind f*ck for me.  I started questioning my own suspicions on what was happening as I was reading!  Is Perry really just crazy?  Is Dex trustworthy?  I felt like there was no safe haven for me in this book, and the unstable feeling I got from it was so awesome!

I literally read this in one night, while curled up on the couch (in the corner, with my back to the wall, no windows allowed behind me).  I don’t think I could’ve done without the support of my friends, who got plenty of creepy text messages from me as sh*t was hitting the fan.

Then there’s Dex and Perry.  I’m on pins and needles with them and the curve ball we were thrown in at the beginning of this book was not what I would’ve predicted.  I love these two with a passion and I can’t wait for them to see they love each other!  The chemistry is just off the charts!

This is by far my favorite book in the series so far… because it’s also the scariest.  I predict an addiction.

Favorite Quotes:

“I felt a gush of warmth flowing from them.  It was my blood.  It seeped freely from my tender knuckles and from the wounds at my both wrists.  I didn’t care.  I had to get out.  If I didn’t, I would die.”

“This was going to be the world’s most terrifying zipline ever.”

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 part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home 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 re-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.
