EXPERIMENT IN TERROR

“Underneath the flashy lights and the slick streets and the throngs of people passing in the warm night, there was an undertone to the city that reeked of madness.”

As it’s Halloween this month I wanted our Romance Rewind post to have a spooky feel, which got me thinking. What are the scariest books I’ve read? The answer was easy: The Experiment in Terror series by Karina Halle. Halle does a fantastic job of wrapping horror and romance together in a terrifying and sexy package then throwing it at her readers. There are some genuinely scary and creepy moments in these books and as someone who HATES horror films I can say if this was ever translated to the big screen, I don’t know if I could watch it.

“Somehow, by dealing with the dead, I had never felt so alive.”

Then there’s the romance. The at times frustrating, elating, frustrating, heart breaking, frustrating, sexy and did I mention frustrating…romance between Dex and Perry our main protagonists. This series keeps you on the edge of exasperation and desperation and I know, I know, it sounds awful! But it isn’t. It’s wonderful. I loved it. I HAD to keep reading, sometimes because of what was happening in the story line, sometimes because I wanted to get beyond the scary bit and sometimes because I needed to know what the hell the situation was between Dex and Perry. Combine all that and it had me glued to the pages until the end of the book.

So, we would like to introduce you to Dex Foray and Perry Palomino and we implore you to try it out this Halloween!

 

“This love just is.  It exists, and because it exists, I exist.”

Also… we’ve done a series of posts before – albeit just before the series had ended – which are a lot of fun! Any giveaways that may have been attached are now long over, but I recommend you go and check them out!

This series surprised me. It just sucked me in and, like you said, I HAD to know what was going to happen. Fortunately for the new readers they can read straight through without having to wait!
