It’s one thing to bring the woman you love back into your life. It’s another to try and keep her there. For Dex Foray, convincing Perry Palomino to open herself to their burgeoning relationship has been more challenging than hunting ghosts, battling demons and stalking Sasquatch combined. Add in the fact that the only way they can keep their Experiment in Terror show running is to take on a third partner in the form of the mysterious Maximus Jacobs — all while investigating a sinister voodoo sect in New Orleans — and you’ve got the perfect Southern storm and a recipe for disaster. Luckily, Dex has never been one to back down, even when his life –and heart — are on the line.

Come Alive is told from Dex’s POV.

Kait's Review


Come Alive is the first book in the Experiment in Terror series that I had to wait to read. Part of me is sad that I didn't get to be a part of this world sooner, but a bigger part of me hates waiting so I'm glad I was a little late on this one. This is also the first full length novel in Dex's POV, which was amazing but it was also a complete journey of mind fuckery. Being in Dex's head for an entire book is exactly how I imagined it, all kinds of crazy, hilarious, sexy, and amazing.

Come Alive takes you into spooky New Orleans, where Dex and Perry travel with Maximus[insert crazy ass Dex nickname here], to film a new episode of Experiment in Terror. This book packs in the creepy, but I definitely didn't get as scared as I have before[Dead Sky Morning is still the tops]. One thing that was more present in this book was the relationship aspect. This is the first book where Dex and Perry are together, officially[ish].There's no more skankasaurus Jenn in Perry's way and things are looking up, kind of. Then, in true Karina fashion, shit goes down. That's all I can say without ruining the book. Just think: zombies and heartbreak.

Dex is as sexy, funny, and as douchey as ever. Seriously, this man can't go five minutes without thinking or saying something that had me cracking up or wanting to punch him. That is the draw of Dex though, he makes you want him and then he drives you a little mad too. I wanted to continue to hate Maximus forever, but CA definitely softened me to him. Now I just want to hug him and stroke his ginger hair. Yea... that sounds wrong, but I'm going with it.

Karina has fucked all future relationships of mine. I will never be able to find someone I can really love because they won't be Dex Foray. While I really did love being in Dex's head I think it might have been a little much for me. I found myself really missing Perry, I formed a bond with her early on in the series. Every little thing that happened had me wondering and worrying about Perry.

Every book in this series keeps getting better and better. When I started Darkhouse I had no idea how in love I would be with the characters and their world. I never expected all the twists, turns, revelations, heartache, adventure, and truly terrifying moments that EIT brings. Now I have to play the real waiting game for the next book in the series.


The daughter of a Norwegian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Vancouver, Canada with trolls and eternal darkness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadistic appreciation for freaking people out. Like many of the flawed characters she writes, Karina never knew where to find herself and has dabbled in acting, make-up artistry, film production, screenwriting, photography, travel writing and music journalism. She eventually found herself in the pages of the very novels she wrote (if only she had looked there to begin with).

Karina holds a screenwriting degree from Vancouver Film School and a Bachelor of Journalism from TRU. Her travel writing, music reviews/interviews and photography have appeared in publications such as Consequence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNomad Travel Guides. She currently lives on an island on the coast of British Columbia where she's preparing for the zombie apocalypse.
