It’s one thing to bring the woman you love back into your life. It’s another to try and keep her there. For Dex Foray convincing Perry Palomino to open herself to their burgeoning relationship has been more challenging than hunting ghosts battling demons and stalking Sasquatch combined. Add in the fact that the only way they can keep their Experiment in Terror show running is to take on a third partner in the form of the mysterious Maximus Jacobs—all while investigating a sinister voodoo sect in New Orleans—and you’ve got the perfect Southern storm and a recipe for disaster. Luckily Dex has never been one to back down even when his life—and heart—are on the line.

Although I missed Perry’s voice—especially in certain crucial situations—I totally fell (and hard) for Dex’s pov in a full novel. This man can’t help astounding the reader every time a bit more with his infinite love for Perry, but he also drives you crazy with the most hot thoughts and sexy actions you could ever hope for. Still, dark clouds are always in the horizon and uncontrollable tears accompany the inevitable thunderstorm . . .

Bets are officially closed, cards are on the table and the game is on. The winner? The story will announce that after some exciting encounters and agonising events . . . If you’re an EIT fan, you may already have sorted a few things out, but that doesn’t mean your mouth still won’t drop an inch or two during some big revelations. Indeed, we get some brand new information setting off a what-the-hell-is-going-on? reaction that led me to a non-stop reading marathon ended at 4am. Believe it or not, this was the first time in my life I went to bed so late to finish a book, hence a huge applause to the author for such a scary, superb read!

As usual, Karina Halle turns your worst fears into terrifying nightmares and, from ecstasy to pure agony, she puts you on the very edge until it’s not possible for the adrenaline to run faster in your system. Unputdownable and unforgettable, this book is by far my personal favourite in the series!

  1. *sighs* I really, really, really have to start this series! Five stars, Silvia? That's awesome when it's on book seven. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and making me want to read the Experiment in Terror series right now!
    Happy reading 🙂

  2. I loved Come Alive! It always surprises me when each book in the EIT series gets better and better. I never think the previous book could be topped, but Karina manages to do it every time. I do agree with you about missing Perry's voice though. I love both her narratives and her character, she's so relatable. And not to forget Dex! They're one of my all-time favourite book couples now =) Great review Silvia!

  3. *blushes* Yeah, I haven't read book one yet..and here you are on 7 rocking it. This series has really rocked for you. I just need to add book one like it is an arc to my list. *faceplam*

  5. 5 DESERVED stars, indeed!!!!! If I had a bigger rating, I would have used it! It's beyond amazing when you reach a book so far in the series and still get so excited, isn't it? Hope you decide to go crazy with this series soon, Lexxie!

  6. I think it's safe to say that Karina Halle brilliantly succeeds in making her stories and characters shine every single time! Also, Dex and Perry are one of my all-time favourite book couples EVER 😉

  7. Oh intriguingg mainly the fears part. I don't think I know this one but book 7? wow that's a lot. Maybe one day when I'll have the time to add a new shole series but it's nice to had a great time with this new character. great review!

  8. Yeah, I'm wondering if I should have one higher or different rating for those very few, but very special and truly awesome books…

    OMG!!! This was my favourite installment of the series! I love New Orleans and I completely loved the story even though it scared the hell out of me sometimes.
    So sad we are nearing towards the end, huh?

  10. Bwahaha, I'm going to add 'evil temptress' to my job titles on my business card, I LOVE It! And I truly hope you'll do that but, just in case, I'm going to post the review for the 8th (and penultimate) instalment next week. 😉 Thanks again for the compliment, Brandee xx
