Smashwords book reviews by Megan Caffery

  • Darkhouse (Experiment in Terror #1) on June 06, 2011

    Loved this book from the get-go. Immediately wanted more as soon as I was finished. It's filled with suspense and the creep factor which is always a plus. And if you're into the supernaturaly, this is definitely up your alley. Dex and Perry are awesome characters that have you hanging on to their every word, thought, action...anything involving them. I've read two other books in the series as well and they keep getting better and better. You can't get enough. Addicting as hell.
  • Red Fox (Experiment in Terror #2) 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.
  • The Benson (Experiment in Terror #2.5) on Dec. 08, 2011

    Ms. Halle has given us yet another installment in the Experiment in Terror series where we see resident ghosthunters Dex and Perry doing what they do best---this time, they're in the haunted hotel known as The Benson. Even though it's a short one, readers are still treated to more of the adventures of this duo, whose ever-present sexual tension never seems to diminish. What more could you want? Take a few minutes out of your day and treat yourself to this fast-paced novella. Then go buy the rest of the books, if you haven't already. You won't be disappointed.
  • Lying Season (Experiment in Terror #4) on Dec. 13, 2011

    I was lucky enough to read an ARC of Lying Season, and I seriously could not get enough. This is my favourite book in the series thus far (and I LOVE them all), and some of Halle's best work when it comes to the heart of the relationship between Dex and Perry. The novel is emotional, tense, and sexy---everything you've come to know and love from Ms. Halle. But when I say magnify that x10 here, I mean it. The stage is set in Seattle for this installment, and there is no shortage of action coming at you from every direction. Dex and Perry have an insane asylum to document while trying to keep another ghosthunting show team at bay (and that itself makes for some interesting dialogue). Amidst their work, they have Jennifer Rodriguez and themselves to contend with, which leads to nothing short of an explosion waiting to happen. I can't say enough about Ms. Halle's writing and this series, but I'm seriously in love with Dex and Perry and need more after every turn of every page. Bring on book #5!!

  • Dead Sky Morning (Experiment in Terror #3) on Dec. 13, 2011

    Dead Sky Morning is the third installment in the Experiment in Terror series, one that takes our paranormal adventurers, Dex and Perry, to a strip of land in the Pacific Northwest known as D'Arcy Island. Sure, they're ready to handle the ghosts (and much more than that) that await them, but the biggest obstacle this time around seems to be each other. Even before the real work begins, the ever-present tension between our resident ghost hunters hits you again right off the bat. They did kiss in Red Fox because they thought they were going to die, but was there more to it than that? That's something you keep asking yourself throughout the book. It's hard to ignore their chemistry, but neither Dex nor Perry are willing to throw caution to the wind just yet. But each time the guard slightly drops, there are a few layers that peel away. Be patient, dear readers. There's also a whole lot on D'Arcy Island that seems to get in Dex and Perry's way and begins to affect the working relationship and friendship that has been built over the past few adventures. The place is haunted, with a whole lot of history that unfolds for Dex and Perry and us readers as the story moves along. What is seen (or isn't seen) starts to take its toll and place the both of them in situations where their lives are at stake. There are doubts, insecurities, and hesitations that potentially ruin them, but also keep them going at the same time. It's an interesting dichotomy in their relationship this time around. The relationship between Dex and Perry is never going to be easy or straightforward, but that's what makes them compelling. They're just as fucked up as the rest of us, and that's why I can't stop reading about them
