Aww, this was so good!

Into the Hollow picks up right where On Demon Wings left off and begins with a tough decision for our gal Perry Palomino. A decision I was silently squeeing over going "SAY YES, YOU NUMPTY!" It also shows us a side to Mr. Declan Foray we've never really seen before since he's always been in a relationship in the past. I think I rather like the free and single version of Dex. Again, SQUEE!

And there's not just the changes in Dex's behaviour to get used to, but you'll also recall he'd transformed a lot physically when he (eventually) showed up in On Demon Wings (he was all buff and stuff). And that's not the only difference we see in him over the course of this book.

If you'd asked me before I began Into the Hollow I'd have told you it wasn't possible for me to love Dex more than I already did, but it turns out that's total bumf because I found him even more irresistible in this book than ever before! He was just so patient but still determined, cheeky, badass, adorable, annoying and absolutely everything in between. I just love him!

The plot wasn't quite as creepy or scary this time but it was definitely action-packed and full of some great dramatic scenes (which I loved). In fact, I'd say this instalment was more Urban Fantasy than Horror—much like Red Fox was—and it was super duper fun and got the old adrenaline pumping nicely.

As well as dealing with the emotional fallout from the last couple of books, Dex and Perry are asked to investigate a potential "creature" sighting in the Canadian Rockies. But even with everything they've seen, they're unsure how much credence they can put in the testimony of one of its supposed victims, so the only solution is to go check it out for themselves.

There was also a moment or two of this book that made me very interested in things to come with regards to Dex and his past demons. Very interesting developments indeed.

My new favourite nickname for an animal (or vegetable, or mineral) ever has to go to Twatwaffle the llama. Pure unadulterated genius and my new favourite word of the week.

Sigh. Of course, the sad thing is now I've run out of books! I knew this would happen, obviously, but I didn't think it would feel quite this crappy. I've got the shakes, withdrawals, extreme lethargy (although I think I had that last one already) and just general uninterest in anything anybody whose name isn't Karina Halle has written. Ever.

What's a rabid fangirl to do?

I am absolutely hooked on this series! I almost had a heart attack when I saw Barnes & Noble did not have "Into the Hollow" for Nook. Thank you Smashwords for saving the day!
I am not a big person for reviews, but I have made sure to leave them for each book in the series because I love these books.

Ok, I normally dont take the time to write a review but the series," Experiement In Terror" was so engaging, I feel the need to support Karina Halle. She has created characters that are so believable, especially for a paranormal read. They are young, hip, insecure, wierd, I dont know, just remind me of real people I know or would like to know. I love the way music is a big part of their lives. I read the series in a week and I am sad that I have to wait for the next one. Loved it!

Review by: Lucia on Nov. 30, 2012 :
Into the Hollow is spectacular !!! I cannot express how much I love Experiment in Terror series!!! Dex & Perry are THE BEST!!!

To say that I liked shocking development of storyline at the beginning of this book would be an understatement. I loved it. The one and only thing (person) that I kept missing in previous book in series was back and in full force. And I have to admit that I was swooning over the "improved" Dex most of the time. It was fun to read how Perry was trying not to be intrigued by him. And since I personally believe in second chances, throughout the whole book I was hoping that Dex will get one...

In this book, roles were reversed. Dex was the open one and trusting, while Perry was building protecting wall arround herself, desperately trying not to unleash her true feelings. But Dex still kept his cocky side which I love so much. Moreover, I loved banter and cheaky arguing between Perry and Dex. It is exactly what makes this pair so special.

Everything that Karina Halle created in this book or in whole series was absolutely mesmerizing. Characters development, storyline and scary stuff too. To be honest, after 2 weeks in the world of Experimen in Terros series, I am worried that I will come across ghosts or other freaky creatures in every single dark corner. But I am not complaining. It is a gift to create such a believable story and I loved every single moment of it.

Now I have no idea what I am going to read afterwards because I already feel huge book hungover. I feel like nothing can compare to Experiment in Terror series. They are just that awesome. Hopefully, next book will be out sooner than later.

I have to say I read a Lot of books and many of them are series' but EIT is my favorite! Every book seems to add a special twist that makes it unforgettable and totally engrossing but Into The Hollow blew it out of the park! I was torn between taking my time savoring the story, to hurrying up and turning pages as quickly as possible because I was on the edge to see what would happen next! Can't wait for the next one! so love these characters!

4.5 Stars!!
I didn't think I could possibly love Dex anymore, but obviously this book just proved me wrong. I love Dex, even more than before. I was completely smitten by this new Dex, and wanted nothing more to become HIS Perry. Words cannot describe the pleasure I get from reading Karina Halle's EIT series. I always look forward to any/all her books. She is an amazing writer!

The comment below was BEFORE I read the book:

"Whoever said, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder", was nuts. Absence makes the heart ACHE longer...and the Sept/Oct Nov release of Into the Hollow (Experiment in Terror #6) has never seemed so far away. But, rereading the series helps a little bit and knowing Perry and Dex get out of their cliffhanger situation (I'm trying not to do a spoiler here for ODW, but the synopsis kinda gives it away) helps. I know this next book will be another 5 star rating ( wish there was a 10 star rating! )."

Now that I've READ the book...it was well worth the wait. My aching heart has been eased. Like I said previously above, I wish there was a 10 star rating, that's how great this book is! The dynamics between Perry and Dex are so intense throughout the whole story, you will sit on the edge of your seat waiting anxiously for an end result. At times I wanted to shake Perry! And Dex is as pervy as ever! Karina Halle has done it again! She weaves a story with just the right amount of humor, terror, adult angst, and love. The Entertainment in Terror series is one of the best series I've read. I am looking forward to book 7!

This series is so addictive. It's like really yummy cake and you try to eat it slowly and before you know it the cake is gone and you can't have more for months!!!
Dex and Perry are growing, they are similar to who they used to be but not the same. That's what pain and experience does to you. I will admit, I was tense and wide-eyed through many scenes in this book (like with all the EIT books).
I recommend this series to anyone who asks for my book picks and also to many who don't ask me at all!
Keep up the good work Karina and thank you.
