An interesting series on the paranormal with the strange combination of leading characters. This episode was plagued with constantly changing font size in e-pub format.

I purchased this book after thoroughly enjoying the first in the series (Darkhouse), and was not disappointed. The characters are wonderfully flawed and entertaining, unlike most of the leads in other books. The story lines rope you in from page one and leave you wanting more at the end. After finishing the second book, I immediately went online and purchased three more from the series. Keep them coming, Karina! You are a fantastic author!

Andy,a friend of mine, asked me to read Darkhouse. I really didn't think that it sounded like something that I would be interested in but I started it with a open mind. Before I knew what happened I was totally engrossed and found myself right in the book with Perry and Dex. I truely enjoyed Darkhouse and couldn't wait to read Red Fox. I have finished the book and loved it so much that I didn't want it to end. I am hooked. Anyone who is reading the reviews and has not read the books, just start give them a chance and start reading, I promise you won't be sorry. Thanks Andy for asking me to read these and thankyou Karine for writing them. Now I am asking you to please hurry up and get the next one one the shelf, I can't hardly wait!!!

Another great read from Karine Halle!
This is the second installment in The Experiment in Terror series. In this book we get to pick up where the first one left off and see that Perry's life has gotten decidedly more complicated since Dex bumped into her in Darkhouse. I really felt sorry for her, and had to wonder what was in store.
This books takes Perry and Dex to New Mexico and smack dab into Navajo mythology. I'm not really up on my Native American Myths, but this was really interesting. Your pulled in not just by the case, which is fascinating, but by the relationship growing between Perry and Dex. I noted that both Perry and Dex act more mature in this book than they do in the last one. I'm not sure if this is due to the strain put on by other factors or if they are growing, but I would like to see this progress. You get kind of a sneak peek into Dex's background in this book as well and it puts the way he acts in better perspective.
The book moves along really well Ms Halle drops hints like bread crumbs leading to the evil beings creating the problems. I kind of figured it out much earlier in the book, but had to keep reading in order to see if I was right, and I was.
Perry and Dex are two charismatic and slightly crazy characters that carry you in kicking and screaming along for the ride. So far it's been an awesome ride and I can't wait to see where they go in the next.

This product was provided to me free of charge by the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

Review by: Andrea Thompson on Aug. 03, 2011 :
I’ve made it abundantly clear that I loved Book 1 in the Experiment in Terror series, Darkhouse. Because I felt so strongly about that book, I was a little nervous to get started on Book 2, Red Fox. Crises averted, because I loved Red Fox even more (if that’s possible)!

In Red Fox, New Mexico, Perry and Dex, struggling to save their show, search amongst old Navajo traditions and legends to find the truth. the author did an amazing job giving the visualization for the scenery. The arid desert, the harsh climate, all felt impossible alive. I felt a part of the story, as if I should be swiping the dust and grime off my own self. The tension between the characters was palpable. I found myself squirming through the tense moments right along with Perry.

In Red Fox, author Karina Halle expanded beautifully upon the characters she created in Darkhouse. We,the readers, are given more insights into what makes Perry and Dex tick. In this book, Dex becomes a more vulnerable, open character. Through Max, an old friend of Dex’s, Perry learns about his past, the tragic history that made him who he is today. Dex is still the same funny, slightly strange guy who we learned to love in Darkhouse. He’s has an alluring quality that draws you in, hoping you can “fix” him. Then in the next moment, says something so bizarre or off-putting, it sends you hurtling straight back to Earth.

Perry is still the same self-deprecating, sarcastic, and captivating girl we met in Darkhouse. Besides dealing with her strange new path, she must also contend with her condescending parents, who have little faith (or knowledge) in what she’s doing. But, as a character, she comes more into her own in Red Fox. She becomes more assertive, gaining confidence and assurance in her abilities and decisions. She still has an insane ability to get herself into ridiculous situations. And now she is stuck in the middle of the desert with Dex, hoping he won’t come unhinged.

As suspenseful as paranormal activity they are dealing with is, that has nothing on the sexual suspense between Dex and Perry. The magnetism between them is bananas. In Red Fox, they are pushed closer than ever before. Sharing a room, sharing a bed. Not only must they fight for the survival of their lives, I’m not so sure their hearts will survive. This couple is driving me insane, in a good way. I am praying for a spectacular payoff in the end! I truly expect them to just literally attack each other one day, hopefully soon.
I don’t think, short of being completely ridiculous, I can encourage you more strongly to read this series. It has quickly moved to the top of my favorites list. This book left me dying. I want to read Book 3, Dead Sky Morning, now.

Review by: Megan Caffery on June 17, 2011 :
The second installment in the Experiment in Terror series is the latest stop on Perry Palomino and Dex Foray's journey in search of the supernatural and, ultimately, themselves. So much going on. Where do I begin?

Still unsure as to the intentions of our resident pseudo-gentleman, Dex Foray, the relationship between him and Perry starts to become a bit more volatile and involved once the duo make their way into town. We are given a little bit of insight into Dex's past and what may have created the man-cum-mystery, but the layers have not entirely been peeled back. There is still plenty of wall to get through before we really know the root of his being. Not to be outdone by her counterpart, Perry begins to really shine and stand on her own two feet. She is insecure at times, yet amazingly strong. She knows what she wants and begins to really assert herself with what is best for her and for her well-being. Poor thing experiences enough that anyone in their right mind would have a tough time handling. But is she in her right mind here... that's the question.

We're also introduced to a rather interesting cast of characters that make the world of Red Fox just a little creepier. Don't be confused by the short spot regarding the book's plot here, but I really don't want to give anything away. The strong story blurs the lines between legend and reality and blends them together to create a place that keeps you on the edge of your seat with every turn of the page. To sum it up, I'll leave you with one word, three syllables: Skinwalkers.

Events transpire over the course of Red Fox that tug at the strings of ever-present tension beteen Dex and Perry, but also create an aura of distrust and suspicion even amongst themselves. Their relationship is again nothing short of the heart and soul of the book and often poses more questions than answers them as time passes, which is integral to the success of a series. Revealing every facet at once makes it too easy. As much as you want to know everything about Dex and Perry right this moment, it's so worth it in the end to remain a devoted and patient reader.
