EXPERIMENT IN TERROR by Karina Halle
For us gals at Under the Covers, August 2013 will remain the month that the Experiment in Terror series by Karina Halle took over our life’s. There was no rest until we had consumed every single book; we were women possessed. A whole month went by when all our texts centred around EiT and would generally start with “OMG have you gotten to this part yet…” “I can’t BELIEVE Dex/Perry did that…” “Hands off bitch Dex is mine!”.
So we have decided to spread our EiT madness to our lovely readers so you can all enjoy the fantastic mixture of tense horror and and an even tenser romance. This month we will be posting some special EiT posts and giving YOU opportunity of winning either a signed copy of Darkhouse (EiT #1) OR the full collection of EiT ebooks.
We will be kicking off with characters profiles of our favourite ghost hunters, Dex Foray and Perry Palomino.
Name: Dex Foray
Profession: Ghost Hunter/Cameraman/Producer on the internet series Experiment in Terror
Medical History: Crazy. On meds for seeing things that aren’t supposed to be there, he practically rattles when he walks. Throw in mood swings and a chequered past and he is the poster boy for poor mental health.
Appearance: 5’7″, dark hair and dark eyes, not typically handsome, but very compelling.
Name: Perry Palomino
Profession: Receptionist….Daydreamer….soon to be TV presenter of the internet series Experiment in Terror
Medical History: History of drug and alcohol abuse with a dash of crazy dreams and prone to seeing things other people can’t. Low self esteem due to perceived weight issues and general weirdness.
Appearance: Long dark hair and blue eyes, short and curvy. Likes to wear leggings and band tshirts.
Now that you’ve met our favorite couple this year,
dive into the books!
With all the vampire, werewolf and faerie books out there, it’s easy to become numb to all things supernatural. The antidote? Darkhouse introduces two real and unforgettable characters, Perry Palomino & Dex Foray, amateur ghost hunters who are “attractive, relatable and oddly heroic,” “flawed but loveable,” “slightly crazy” and just the most endearing pair to ever tackle the paranormal…just don’t call them normal.
Darkhouse is a thrilling and sexy new take on concepts like Supernatural and The X-Files, bringing a breath of fresh air to a genre that has been inundated with the dead.
***Darkhouse and the Experiment in Terror series is a horror/romance for mature audiences only. Readers who are easily offended by harsh language should think twice about reading it.***
Some of our favorite quotes from DARKHOUSE:
“Somehow, by dealing with the dead, I had never felt so alive.”
“I used to dream big. It seemed like somewhere along the way I had forgotten about that. And gave up.”
“Because sometimes I lie, Perry. We all lie, even you, but not everyone is brave enough to admit it.”
“If you want to be all like smart and adult about this shit then do the right thing. But if you want to do something fun and take a chance, then screw what anyone else thinks. Rock and roll, man!”
During the month of November we will be giving you the opportunity to enter our Experiment in Terror giveaway. If you are a new reader of the series, then you will get a complete set of ebooks, including all novellas. If you’ve read them all, then you can enter to win a signed copy of DARKHOUSE that Karina has graciously offered to send out. This giveaway is open to everyone!
