This time Dex and Perry are off to New Mexico to investigate some strange goings on at a ranch. We find out that Dex has been contacted by an old friend, Maximus and asked to come down and help. At first Dex and Perry think they are going to investigate a poltergeist, but it soon becomes clear that this is something very different and they will discover, far more terrifying. Dealing with strange animals, people on the ranch not telling them the whole truth and Navajo stories and beliefs, Dex and Perry soon realise that making a show is the least of their problems.
It did have a slightly slow beginning for me, but it certainly made up for it later! It felt like the second part of the book was all go. I did guess who was behind it all early on, but Karina kept throwing things in that had me doubting myself.
Max intrigued me and whilst he appeared to be looking out for Perry, the tension between him and Dex made me uneasy. I didn't quite trust him although he came through in the end.
Perry once again was great, funny and kick ass when she needs to be, but real. Not perfect and scared when she should be.
I have to say that I'm still not sold on Dex completely yet, but I certainly warmed to him more. I felt he was a lot more likeable in this one, but I'm not quite there yet.Read more ›
As with the first novel in the series there was plenty of sexual tension between Perry and Dex plus a good shot of the crazies from a medication-withdrawing Dex. The motif of secrecy, of hiding things ran through the book, adding a deeper layer to Perry and Dex's relationship and also providing the constant question of who was safe to trust and who might just be ready to rip your throat out.
This was a gripping read full of Native American mythology and some clever answers to some of the stories mysteries. It wasn't as full out scary as the first book but it didn't really matter as the novel was strong enough without it. If you haven't already checked out Karina Halle, then do it, please.
I've now read up to book 6 in the series, so writing a review about book 2 with the benefit of foresight is a wonderful thing. Also, if you're reading this review and you haven't read all the other books yet then I envy the experience you're about to go on! For me, it's all about the characters, but the story is creepy enough to keep your attention too. Start with 'Darkhouse' if you haven't read the first book yet.
I love Dex and Perry, I really do. They're so deliciously messed up! Perry is developing an attraction for Dex that she doesn't understand or need and really who knows what Dex is thinking or feeling? The books are written from Perry's point of view and I defy anyone not to recognise a bit of Perry in themselves; she's insecure, has low self-esteem, is funny, anxious, sarcastic, hopeful, terrified, warm, open - she's black and white and all shades in between and you can't help but love her. She's wonderful.
The storm that is Dex Foray is a different matter, from reading Perry's POV you get what she knows about Dex and that's all, and that's a jumble of confusion and joy. He's an enigma, wrapped up in a snarky, funny, caring, sexy, confused, bewildered, hot package. He's moved into my top book boyfriends, I feel like Perry with a fangirl crush on him!
We meet some great characters in this book; Maximus who is an old 'friend' of Dex's and Bird who lives and works on the farm.Read more ›
