Review: Into the Hollow by Karina Halle

Into the Hollow (Experiment in Terror #6) by Karina Halle
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Perry Palomino has fought her demons – and won – but the battle is far from over. She’s now left broken and on her own, leaving behind her life and family in Portland to focus on giving Dex Foray – and the Experiment in Terror show – a second chance. But their past mistakes continue to tease and test their relationship, as does the wild and desolate terrain of the Canadian Rockies. The snow-covered peaks and ravenous forests hide an urban legend too unbelievably frightening to be true and the only way the duo has a chance of surviving is if Perry can let in the very man who sent her to hell and back.
My Thoughts: When last we left our intrepid heroine, Perry had overcome something that could have killed her on several levels. She was only saved by the quick thinking of her sister and her manic, on-again, off-again guy, Dex. With the things she had seen and the truths that finally came to light, Perry had some tough decisions to make about who she can trust. I must admit that I was pleased as punch to see her finally make the choice to move out of her family's house and try to make it on her own. The downside is that she and Dex are nowhere near okay yet after what they both went through and those unresolved tensions keep popping up and making life difficult for them.

Guys, I ADORE Perry and Dex together. They're messy and screwed up and they somehow seem so right to me. Dex is actually pretty darn stable this time around. It feels like he's finally coming into his own. He's learning his strengths and weaknesses instead of burying his abilities under a haze of drugs and lies. Both he and Perry are also dealing with the fallout of going through the veil in the previous book. Throw in an angry... something in the snowy wilds and a creepy-ass guide, not to mention all that sexual tension, and you get to see Perry and Dex at their snarky, damaged best. Also, I dare you not to giggle whenever "Twatwaffle" is used.

I honestly love this series. I'm so invested in these characters and their crazy, messed up, dangerous lives that it's ridiculous. I love that we're seeing some real growth from Dex and that he's willing to fight for Perry now. I also kinda love that Dex is a sexual dynamo who really knows how to treat his lady right. Their relationship might still be tangled up like crazy, but they generate some serious heat when they get naked.

I'm ready to see what happens next. Bring it on!
