Genre: Fiction, Adult: Paranormal
In the forgotten town of Red Fox, New Mexico, a Navajo couple is tortured by things unseen and by motives unknown. Wild animals slink through their house in the dark, a barrage of stones pound their roof nightly, and mutilated sheep carcasses are turning up on their property. Armed with a camera and just enough to go on, Perry Palomino and Dex Foray travel to the desolate locale, hoping to film the supernatural occurrences and add credibility to their flailing webcast. Only their show has a lot more working against them than just growing pains. Tested by dubious ranch hands, a ghost from Dex's past, and shapeshifting deception, the amateur ghost hunters must learn to trust each other in order to fight the most ancient of myths...or die trying.
Review: This is the 2nd book in The Experiment in Terror series, and so far this series only gets better and better. I felt really bad for Perry as her life has seemed to have taken a down turn, she loses her job and has to lie to her parent to keep the peace. The bright spot in her life is Dex and the internet show they work on together. The show takes Perry and Dex to New Mexico right in the middle of the dessert. Navajo myths abound and while I'm not big on Native American mythos, I found this really interesting.
I was pulled into this story, not just because of the paranormal aspect but the budding romance between Perry and Dex, or what I hoped becomes romance. I think these two would make a cute couple.
I think Perry and Dex grow some in this book as they both deal with a lot. While I want to see them grow and mature, I hope it doesn't effect their attitude to much because I love their snarky back and forth commentary.
You get a small look into Dex's background in this book, yet Perry's is still hinted at and tiptoed around. But this does help explain the way Dex acts.
Ms Halle did a great job with this book, even though I never was really interested in Native American myths I found myself pulled in wanting to know more. There's a bit of a mystery with this book, I really wanted to know who was behind the "haunting". I kind of figured it out before the end, but had to finish the book because I was just that enthralled by everything. Ms Halle weaves an excellent story I can't wait to read more of this addictive series.
