It’s been two months since Perry Palomino and Dex Foray’s relationship reached a new turning point, two months since Perry started a new life in Seattle, and two months since their Experiment in Terror show took on a new partner, ex-Wine Babe Rebecca Sims, and found a new level of success. But whenever there is light in their lives, the madness still has a way of coming back in.
When the team is sent back to the stormy Oregon coast to investigate a haunted school, Perry wants to use the opportunity to reconnect with her family and reintroduce Dex into their lives. Only Perry’s not the only one who’s reaching out – her grandmother Pippa has started appearing to her with disturbing warnings and Perry’s presence at the school has ignited a chilling new wave of supernatural phenomenon. Once used a century ago as a sanatorium to house children dying of tuberculosis, the school’s past residents are slowly coming back to life and with one thing on their mind. They want someone to play with, someone to join them. Forever.
Even when dead, some children get whatever they want.
And they want Perry.

HOLY HELL! THAT WAS AWESOME!
I just finished this book and my heart is pounding!In terror, in happiness, in shock! It’s all happening in EIT-land!
We’re back in Perry POV, which I love! Because as much as I love Dex, I have missed Perry in all of her sarcastic awesomeness, she is a fantastic narrator, and I feel like she’s really grown up a lot since the beginning of the series. She’s confident and more comfortable with herself and her life, and I just love her.
“Perry Palomino, ghost magnet. I was like the highly sought after call girl of the supernatural. A whore for the unhappily deceased.”
This book starts two months after the ending of Come Alive and finds Dex and Perry blissfully happy and in love, and it’s a truly beautiful thing! They are together, they are secure, they are passionate as all hell, and so freaking swoony.
“All it took was to see him, to hear those words that I was his, and I was falling in love, so hard and so fast all over again.”
“I’m your fucking man, baby. That’s all there is to it, I’m your fucking man. That is never going to change.”
Their new assignment for Experiment in Terror has them investigating a school for artistically gifted students. The school is haunted by the evils of the past when it functioned as a sanatorium for children dying of tuberculosis. And let me tell you, Karina Halle takes the freak-out factor to a whole new level in this one. With ghosty children and bad things on the loose, this book scared the shit out of me, I kid you not! I was home alone, reading at night, and my heart was pounding so hard. I think I was actually whimpering at one point.
Thank God all is well in Derry-land so that we get some happy time, and a much needed break from all of the crazy. The romance is absolutely phenomenal! Having overcome so much to be together, Dex and Perry are committed and happy, with lots of PDA, talk of love and swoony declarations.
“What we have – it consumes me. It devours me. And it scares me more than anything we have ever encountered, because if I ever lost you, if I ever had to live without you, I wouldn’t be whole. You, Perry, have my heart. You are my heart.”
And the sexy time is absolutely steaming! Damn, my Dex has some incredible moves! Perry is a lucky, lucky girl!
“Long story short – the sixty-nine position doesn’t work. You both get too turned on to keep going. It’s a beautiful failure.”
And, of course, Dex continues to shine. He remains at his sexy, nasty best, and his commentary had me laughing out loud so many times!
He made a face. “Soy milk. Ugh. Tastes like jizz.”
I gave him a curious look. “And how do you know that?”
“I have bad aim sometimes”
Amidst all of the spooky stuff and romance there are some massive bombs dropped! Dex, Perry and Rebecca are all facing huge changes, Pippa is back with ominous warnings, a family secret is revealed, and a blast from the past makes their presence known. And it all ends with a massive moment of epicness (which had me squeeing out loud – and I even shed a tear) before a WTF moment that had me screaming ‘YOU CAN’T FINISH IT LIKE THAT!!!!’.
Holy effing duckspunk, Karina, you have totally delivered once again! This book has everything, and I cannot WAIT for the final instalment in this epic, epic series!
