With Book Two of the Experiment in Terror Series, Perry Palomino and Dex Foray trade in the stormy Oregon coast for the unforgiving deserts of New Mexico.My Thoughts: I'm wickedly in like with Dex. The guy is unpredictable, manic, and driven. Yet, he has this core of sweetness that shines through every so often that melts me. I like this guy. I LIKE HIM. I want him to get together with Perry in the biggest way. Yet at the same time I love the tension between them. One of the characters remarks that it's like the two of them are on a perpetual first date and it's so true. They are adorably awkward around one another. Dex is intense, Perry is self-conscious. And I want them to end up together without losing that awkward sweetness. Is that weird?
In the forgotten town of Red Fox, a Navajo couple is tortured by things unseen and by motives unknown. Wild animals slink through their house in the dark, a barrage of stones pound their roof nightly, and mutilated sheep carcasses are turning up on their property. Armed with a camera and just enough to go on, Perry and Dex travel to the desolate locale, hoping to film the supernatural occurrences and add credibility to their flailing webcast. Only their show has a lot more working against them than just growing pains. Tested by dubious ranch hands, a ghost from Dex’s past, and shapeshifting deception, the amateur ghost hunters must learn to trust each other in order to fight the most ancient of myths…or die trying.
So, this time around, Perry and Dex are investigating strange goings on in New Mexico. Perry's dealing with some big issues with work. Dex is dealing with some big issues with... umm, him. They still don't know each other all that well and now they have to pretend to be married in a place where they can't trust anyone. It's kinda awesome.
Two books in and I'm in love with both the characters and the world that Karina Halle has created. The webshow Perry and Dex are working on give them the perfect opportunity to explore strange places. Their murky pasts and odd insights allow them to be more open-minded than most others would be in their position.
Frankly, I can't wait to see what shenanigans the two of them get into next.
