A scary, fabulous bargain!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Darkhouse (Experiment in Terror #1) (Kindle Edition)
I've had "Darkhouse" on my kindle TBR list for ages, I bought it after another reviewer recommended it - well, I say "bought" it was FREE! I'm not always happy with the free kindle books, but I finally got round to reading this and what can I say... Wow!
Firstly, there's Perry and she's awesome! She's a funny, honest, angsty version of all of us! She's the narrator of the book and I love to read her thoughts. The book starts when Perry goes to have a look around a creepy lighthouse on her Uncle's land and takes her trusty iPhone to record her experience. Now this should should show you that Perry is a little weird - she's been having scary nightmares lately and the lighthouse scares the crap out of her but she still goes. So maybe she's weird AND brave? Anyway, through her scary time at the lighthouse she meets Dex who's a film producer and is as weird, wonderful, crazy and funny as Perry is. Dex wants to make a kind of ghost hunter series and Perry wants one thing a bit more exciting in her life, so can he persuade her back into the lighthouse?
I have to say that this book is scary - I had to stop reading it at night before bed as it scared the crap out of me a couple of times! It's so tense and atmospheric, but it's also funny and warm and Perry tugs at my heart strings.
I'm so pleased I found this book, I'm off to get book 2 (another bargain!) and immerse myself in Perry and Dex again.
Perry Palomino - what an awesome name and character!
