      I have been wanting to read this story for a long time. I have had the Audible edition sitting on my shelf for months, if not years. Finally, I decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately, this book ended up being a disappointment for me. It ended up being kind of "meh". I just couldn't ever connect with the characters or the story. I'm beginning to think that I need to stick to Karina Halle's dark romance/dark erotica. I love many of her other books that fall in those sub-genres. However, every bo [...]

      You are your own worst critic. With that in mindDarkhouse isn't high-brow literature, it's not going to change the world (yet), and yeah, there are one or two typos in the book. But, considering it's the first book in the series, it is what is. A "pilot episode" that introduces two characters, Perry Palomino and Dex Foray, who will vex, challenge and intrigue you from this book onwards. Darkhouse has some tense, creepy moments - not only with regards to the supernatural (including a "dead" light [...]

      Well, fuck. I have no idea how I feel about this so I'm just going to leave it at three stars. Do I like Perry? Not sure. I can’t tell if I think she’s a delightful misfit and a welcome change from the usual speshul snowflake, or if she’s just a petty, judgmental bitch with an infuriating lack of self-esteem. I went back and forth with her throughout the whole frigging book. And Dex? Is he interesting and complex? Or a complete asshole? I couldn’t make heads or tails of him. And what the [...]

      By mixing in elements of horror, humor, romance, and action, this Experiment In Terror is a complete success!Working at a job she can't stand and living with a family who doesn't understand her, Perry Palomino is having trouble finding her place in the world. Maybe that's why she finds herself drawn to other things that don't quite belong in this world as well. Shadowy horrors invade her dreams, and a haunted lighthouse beacons her. When her investigation into the strange lighthouse leads her to [...]

      Well, shit, son. If there was a moment that determined the course of my future, I'm pretty sure this was it.Apparently, Experiment in Terror has quite the cult following that I'm only just now finding out about. As usual, I am late to the party. My invitation MUST HAVE GOTTEN LOST IN THE MAIL. Thanks, friends.3.5 stars for a promising start to this series. I sense potential. I keep hearing that it only gets better from here on out, so I will definitely be picking up the next book soon. BONUS for [...]

      I didn’t know what to expect with this book,I have never read anything like that before but since it was highly rated by a lot of people, I thought I would give it a shot!I wasn’t disappointed!This book was amazing!!!!!Perry Palomino's life hasn't turned out quite the way she had planned. At 22-years old she lives with her parents who don't know how to interact with their daughter.She works as a receptionist, and hates it. Her little sister Ada is everything Perry is not blonde,thin and popu [...]

      *4 Stars!*A fun and promising start to what appears to be an amazing series!Although the horror genre may not be a stretch for many, Darkhouse was my introduction into the fictional world of fear. I'd initially been warned from many that this first installation is more of a decent warm-up to an incredible series, so I consequently lowered my expectations a bit. I'm happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised by how immensely I enjoyed this book; it was precisely what I needed to shake up my rea [...]

      We meet Perry and basically find out that she's had a bit of a rough life. She's talked to imaginary friends, dabbled in drugs and dealt with some bullies. But she has finished college and is trying to make her way in this poor economy. On a weekend trip to her Uncle's, she decides to check out his "haunted" lighthouse and during some strange encounters, she meets Dex. So, it's been killing me to have put these off for so long but I knew from all my friend's reactions that this series would just [...]

      This book is FREE at Barnes and Noble and Smashwords! Get it, get it!!barnesandnoble/w/darkhashwords/books/viewI'm not normally much for horror books, but I've recently been trying to loosen my rabid grip on all things romance. Turns out, I truly tend to need it to stay interested. The great thing about that is that even male authors tend to throw a little romance into their plot somewhere. So when I started seeing this series pop up all over my feed, amidst my also-romance-addicted friends, for [...]

      I am afraid. I am very afraid. afraid to write this review because I have a feeling GR community, that is a big fan of this series, will probably make me suffer by locking me in a room with lighthouse keeper I had this feeling too when I was writing a review for KA's book RAID. So many people loved it, and worships the author, that I was terrified to write that it was really nothing special.I have heard that this series gets better with every following book and that is why I was literally pushin [...]

      4.5 SUPER CREEPY STARS!!!!!![image error]I really loved this book!! It was so good!! I don't normally read scary supernatural books, but I'm glad I took a chance with this one. This book really reminded me of the show "Supernatural" with all the creepy and fascinating elements in the story. I loved Perry!!! She is just like your average 22 year old trying to figure out her place in the world. I like the fact that the author didn’t make her perfect and she has flaws like every other girl. At fi [...]

      "Expect the Unexpected!"First, I want to say that this book brings to my attention exactly why I love GR. I would have never been aware of this series or author if it weren't for all of my GR buds talking about how awesome this series is, and how they have fallen in love with the mysterious, moody character; Dex Foray. Darkhouse is the first book in the Experiment of Terror series, and as with tons of my fellow readers, I have fallen in love with this series. This is not a romance, (although I a [...]

      4 creep-tastic stars!Finally, my first read from Karina Halle, (I'm a late Halle bloomer), and my first read of the Experiment in Terror Series,(obviously). And let me just say, it felt fantastic to finally get to experience what people have been raving about. All I can say is the hype is definitely warranted. This is just the first book but already I can safely say, I am hooked. I already love Perry. Dexhe's definitely growing on me. This book had the right amount of creep, mystery, chemistry a [...]

The descriptions were overly wordy and there was barely any dialogue between the main characters. I struggled because I really wanted to like this book, I had heard great things about this series!!! Well finally, after almost dnf'ing the book, it happen [...]

      I was late high school/early college when X-Files was on TV. Every Friday night, after my evening shift at work, it was me, late-night takeout, textbooks, and X-Files. It may sound like a sad routine but I loved it. You'd think Karina Halle's Experiment in Terror series would be a distant memory for me then, right? It's got X-Files written all over it! Truth is, when I discovered Ms. Halle in 2013, this series was already released and for whatever reason just didn't make it onto my "priority" ra [...]

But after a bad run on romance books lately I knew I had to cleanse my palate. After reading the first couple of pages and seeing my hometown mentioned and my alma mater I knew it was going to be okay!!! Plus there is a lot of humor in this book. Perryand Dex both have the ability to see a [...]

      Okay, I’ll be really quick on this review, because I want to jump on this series and since they told the more the series advance, the better it gets well, I want to read this the fast as I can.I’m usually not the biggest fan of horror stories (basically because I’m a chicken) but I’ve got to say that I was seriously missing out on this books. Karina Halle is a hell of a horror genius. So Perry is a 22 years old, bored with her life and with no idea what to do. One night, when spending a [...]

      Coming highly recommended by so many friends, I couldn't resist from checking out this creeptastic looking series any longer. All you need to convince me, really, is to tell me it has ghosts--and these are not the sweet ghosts you can fall in love with either (which I will never be fond of), these are evil: truly and relentlessly evil.Having been reading a lot of Young Adult novels, it was a nice change to get a protagonist that's a bit older. At 22 years old, Perry is dealing with an unfulfilli [...]

      OMG !!!! When i started reading this one , i was'nt sure if this was a 5 star read at all . I'll tell you why , because it started out really slow and somewhat irritating . Well i'm not really sure about the irritating part , must have been the med's i took to get rid of this flu that i've been down with but anywhoo this book was totally not i expected it to be . Its scary , its funny , its adventurous , its got a little steam too building up on the Main Characters - Perry and Dex , in short its [...]

      5 starsEvery once in a while I stumble across an author that just completely takes me by surprise in a wonderful, squee-inducing way. This time, it was Karina Halle. I had heard some amazing things about her Experiment in Terror series, and have been meaning to check it out for quite a while. And after only reading the first few pages of Darkhouse, I knew this was something special.22 yr old Perry Palomino has been haunted by bizarre dreams that have a habit of coming true. While on a weekend ge [...]

      Darkhouse was my first book by Karina Halle and I was pleasantly surprised with her intriguing style of writing. She made me laugh, made me feel scared and created very different, original and interesting characters in this book. I like when authors are able to use the right amount of sarcasm in theirs stories, and Karina Halle definitely knows how to do that. I never watch horror movies but I love reading horror stories. It has been quite a long time since I read some horror so I am very gratef [...]

      Lil' buddy read with Her Highness La Lionne. :DRefreshing scary story. Loved everything about it. Felt like I was right there with the characters. I really love Perry, but I just wish she was tougher. I mean, she faces the supernatural heroically, but when a stupid son of a bitch calls her fat, she bursts into tears and runs away like a little girl. Come on, show some self-respect!Dexoh Dex, you're something else entirely! Out of this world. I think you're a supernatural being too. I think you c [...]

    30. Kirsten on said:

      Giving this a 3-3.5. I think it's a great foundation to the start of a *gasp, 9+ book series. I will take my friends advice and continue the adventures of Perry and Dex. Overall it was good and I liked it. If anything, it made me remember how much I enjoy this author and need to get back to her other series. I'm looking forward to the freaky shenanigans of this pair.
