Oh, it was so good to be back with EIT! I think absence really had made my heart grow fonder because it took precisely no time at all for me to be grinning from ear to ear, in my happiest of happy places, savouring the wondercake that was COME ALIVE.

What made it so good? Well, many things, but the top of the list for me would be the awesomeness that was DEX'S NARRATION! It was certainly a different reading experience after enjoying six books from Perry's POV, but it was a good different. I was rapt instantly, poring over his every word, every thought. For a character whose motives and feelings have always been somewhat muggy, to get an entire book written from his POV--not just a scene or a novella, but and entire freakin' book so we could really dig in deep and scramble things around to see just how his brain works--was just beyond delicious and I savoured every single morsel of it!

Now, granted, a lot of Dex's thoughts do revolve around sex and his favourite parts of Perry's anatomy. But come on, now. This is Dex we're talking about. Would you love him if he were any other way?

Didn't think so.

To be fair to the lovely Perry, I did miss her narration at times, it's true. Particularly since she's currently the most conflicted of the two characters. I would have dearly loved to have known what thoughts were whirring around in that little head of hers at certain points. Dex, on the other hand, is being clear as a bell and I loved seeing him be so wonderfully honest about his feelings for Perry, and about everything that's gone down between them in the past. Even without the pleasure of his POV, he's so open that we (and Perry) would have known where we stood with him anyway. The man says what he means and means what he says, and believe me when I tell you he says some heartmeltingly swoony things in COME ALIVE! I'm so very excited to read the next book after the ending of this one!

I haven't gone over the synopsis or anything, but I assume everyone knows by this point that Karina Halle simply doesn't know how to write a bad story, so there's absolutely nothing to worry about on that front. We even get some long-awaited answers about certain characters as well, so all in all, a really fantastic book, not to be missed (as if you would have anyway).

So go forth and purchase, book lovers! You will regret nothing. I swear on my hair.

Book 7 in EIT, told from Dex's POV had me laughing so flipping hard i have never highlighted so many passages in a book before.

Here, Dex and Perry team up with Ginger Balls to fight voodoo magic in New Orleans whilst Derry try and come to terms with being a couple. We meet some new characters and Dex's mum makes a few appearances but not in a good way and things begin to get scary down in NOLA with the help of a few zombies and an enchanting priestess in training.

It got quite angsty at 62% and I bloody cried and felt sick, but that's what Karina's writing does to me and I love it and hate it at the same time.

We got lots of sexy Dexy time and some beautiful words from the man himself.

Bring on Book 8, I can't blimmin wait!

spoilers! read the other books first before you read this review!

this was really hard to get through for me because of things that maximus told dex that could ruin his and perrys relationship, how they shouldnt be together because of the damage they could cause and what maximus really is, i didnt guess that although it does make sense why he first showed up when he did in red fox. come alive also explained perrys possession in on demon wings. and why she lost the baby. it was all so poignant. i loved the fact as well that perry held back a bit with dex because he asked her if she loved him in a previous book rather than telling her how he felt.
i felt like i was in new orleans and the zombies were unsettling. i had a new empathy for maximus because of what he went through with rose when they knew each other before and so i kind of understood why he is such a douchcanoe, he was actually trying to help.
i loved the ending and cant wait for the next book, it will be another long wait. keep it coming ms halle.

I found that the continual Fantastic sex that Perry and Dex were supposed to be having got really boring in the end, as it detracted from the main storyline. I enjoyed this series originally because of the characters and the adventures they had. Now it reads like a mild porno story with the odd paranormal story thrown in to fill it up.

Ooh what can I say. The EIT series is one of my favourites and seeing as this one is written in Dex' POV, it is even more potent.

Dex is just, well, Dex and he is fabulously tactless and says what he thinks. Although he is more or less putty in his lover's hands. Perry holds his heart in her hands; not even the presence of the douchecanoe, Maximus, can come between them - even though he does try - again.

They are now filming in New Orleans, a new concept laid down by their boss, where Maximus is in charge and gets to organise their next episode.

This one is full of creepy old ladies, Voodoo hoodoo and zombies - and an old flame of Maximus; spicy and full of Dex & Perry lurve and sexy times ;-)

Enjoy! I did!

I am so sad this is the last book for the moment, I read all of the EIT books in 4 days.
I can't get enough of reading about Dex and Perry and, like everyone else, have fallen head over heels with Dex.
I can't wait for the next installment but I don't know what I will do when the series is over as I will feel as if I have lost some very good friends. If you haven't read any of these books, get onto them now. I love the fact that these books are scary, sexy but not at all soppy and romantic.

A rollercoaster ride of emotions as always! I have to admit that at one point in the story I think I actually hated Ms Halle! As well as taking the hearts of our beloved Dex and Perry and tearing them to shreds, she did the same to mine!
As with the rest of the series, you are completely sucked in, wanting to know what will happen next, but sometimes not daring to ask!
It's going to be a long wait for the next book, cos I just can't wait!!!!!!

Apart from a few missed letters and spelling mistakes......... I LOVE THIS SERIES, the author is adept at seeing both a male AND female perspective, each book is read alone, unless you are reading eg: 5.5 but each nooks ends with me racing to buy the next one. Can't recommend enough, the stories are intriguing and the characters believable, with just enough supernatural.
