“This is a must read for fans of Karina Halle’s EIT and for readers who aren’t scared of being frightened a bit.  A well rounded story that delivers on the horror and the sex appeal.  Halle’s writing is addictive! ” ~Under the Covers

I read the first book in this series before I had experienced Karina Halle’s Experiment in Terror series.  And it had originally creeped me out.  Just when I thought that would be a standalone, we go back in time with Dawn and Sage and all the creepy supernatural dealings around them.

I don’t want to give spoilers from the previous book, but suffice it to say Sage and Dawn have been apart.  While she’s been successful back home, Sage has been going on tour all over the world.  As with the previous story, this book reads like a dark and paranormal ALMOST FAMOUS.  We are back in the 70s and deep in the rock and roll culture.  Groupies, sex, drugs.  And creatures with sharp teeth.  THE DEVIL’S REPRISE brings us another deal with the devil, and another debt that has to be paid.  Be careful what you wish for.

While THE DEVIL’S REPRISE may seem to start off a bit slow, the build up of this story was perfect for me.  I got frustrated right along with Dawn at seeing some of the things that had been happening.  I enjoyed every concert.  And my heart rate sped up with every sex scene.  Because yes, this book was hot!

And then I had a really neat treat.  For Experiment of Terror fans, this book will tie into that story.  I didn’t realize it before and I’m not sure if it was explained in the previous book, but this series features the “Jacobs”.  And also brings us a glimpse of Max, pre EIT.  As soon as I made the connection with the cute redhead I squeee a little.

This is a must read for fans of Karina Halle’s EIT and for readers who aren’t scared of being frightened a bit.  A well rounded story that delivers on the horror and the sex appeal.  Halle’s writing is addictive!

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 30 something 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), 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.
