      “Do you see how you’ll lose?” he continued, his voice seething. “And I will win.”“I reckon I can stop you,” came Jake’s voice.In the nick of time, as always.Oh, Christ. Save us from deus ex fucking machina.This is not a bad book at all. It had its very creepy moments, and I enjoyed it for an entertaining read. It just didn't deliver what I wanted from the book. There were inconsistencies in the writing that made the book sound too modern. There was absolutely no relationship deve [...]

      My Jake and Eve:18-years old half-native tracker girl and arrogant former Texas ranger. It’s 1851 when Eve and Jack, together with a group of poeple, set up on dangerous search expedition into the local cold mountains. If only they knew what kind of evil would be awaiting themI’m not sure how Karina Halle does it, but all her books are 100% movie material. This book is no exception. Historical romance, fascinating Indian’s legends, a lot of action and zombies. Donners of the Dead is withou [...]

      10/27/14 - Freebie 4.5 StarsWow. This was one crazy ass ride. Fast-paced and intense. Donners of the Dead is an imaginative take on the story of the Donner Party (an actual group of Americans who were snowbound out in the Sierra Nevada back in 1846 who, in order to survive, resorted to cannibalism). An eerie and dark tone straight from the get go, that just continues to grow into a truly horrifying tale. "You need to go. You need to find it. What's out there"Set in 1851 - shortly after the Donn [...]

      4+ 'NOT GOING TO EAT MEAT ANYTIME SOON' STARSI think it’s safe to say that out of all the dark, gruesome, sickening things I’ve read, cannibalism tops it all and I’m not ashamed to admit I was flailing like a chicken at 2 AM reading this. Horror + romance = Karina Halle Awesomeness!**The author warns you that while this book does have some facts about the Donner party and the landmarks, it is not to be taken as historically accurate (and definitely not those flesh-eating, nightmare-inducin [...]

      Karina-Fucking-Halle!!! I like to pride myself on not being a pansy ass bitch. I can hang with the best of them and watch a scary ass movie and not be the coward in the corner begging for them to turn it off. Karina-Fucking-Halle!!!I am not a big fan of reading about zombies. I am a fan of watching movies about them, but when it comes to reading about zombies, I'm like hmmm there are way more books out there begging me to read them. I'll just skip this one.

      5 Human & Inhuman StarsGod didn't create monsters. Monsters created themselves.As Eve's mother plainly stated there are angels inside of monsters and monsters inside of angels. Nothing to warn you of human nature and the sheer evil that can be hidden inside. But it is not the supernatural. It's our choices, the world we build for ourselves, our ambitions and dreams, prejudices and fears that shape us. And if we end up monstrous. It's our hell to pay.Enter ZombiesOr Wendigos. Or Chinokas. Or [...]

      3.5 stars!!! Perfect book for when you're in the Halloween mood!!! Or just want something thrilling and scary. I know one thing with any Karina Halle book, and it's that I'll be entertained from the beginning until the very end. I love that Halle took genres I wouldn't normally read (horror and historical) and combined them to make a thrilling and terrifying tale. Some parts were a little bit too gross for me, and I did skim some of the violence because I am squeamish, but otherwise this book wa [...]

      Why in the world would you rate a book two stars that you HAVE NOT READ? I understand the idiots rating books one star because they have mommy issues and need to be hateful or something, or the fangirls rating a book five stars before publication just so we ALL know how much they OMG love the author, buto stars? Someone please explain. As for the rater, whoever you are

      4.5 Scary StarsWow. That was creepy, gross, scary and a definite page turner of a read!I survived!! Karina Halle delivered a fast pace, action packed, scary ride and I couldn’t but it down.Eve Smith, a girl who is half Indian, half white, made for a fantastic lead character. Her strength, hope and courage was seriously amazing. I sure hope that I would possess such characteristics put in the same situation.Eve is sent to help a rough group of men from Texas search in the Sierra Nevadas for a m [...]

HOWEVER, THE AUTHOR FLAT OUT SAYS IT HERSELF IN THE SYNOPSIS CONTAINED ON , SO IT’S OBVIOUSLY NOT A SPOILER. ALSO, THE TITLE????

      ***2.4 stars***I have a like-hate relationship with this book. I'm actually surprised that I didn't enjoy this book as much as KH's other books.I liked the first half of the book, a lot. I loved the fact that author chose mixed race female character from 18th century as a heroine. It made her interesting. I wanted to get to know her and how she came to be, about her family history, and was looking forward to reading about her journey. When I got to know Jake, Eve's love interest, I thought "Let [...]

      Donners of the Dead was an exciting spin off of the horror that happened to The Donner Party back in the 1800s. Most people know of that horrific chapter in American history, but leave it to Karina Halle to use it for a sinister tale sure to spook and frighten. Add in an unlikely romance and I’m one happy girl. I was glued to the pages! This is one of those read-in-one-sitting books. Eve Smith is a young woman considered a “half-breed” born to Native American father and a white woman, in a [...]

      "There are only monsters inside of angels and angels inside of monsters. Choose wisely"What. A. Ride.Donners of the Dead is not your typical zombie book and doesn't really compare to any zombie movies and/or TV shows I have seen either. Not that my zombie knowledge is all that encompassing as I tend to avoid this genre in general because quite frankly, the gore freaks me out a bit. But since Karina Halle wrote it, I went against all of my preconceived notions and gave it a chance anyway.What It' [...]

      "You need to go. You need to find it. What's out there."Do you like historical romance?Do you like scary on the edge of your seat stories?Do you like opposites attract romances?Do you have a strong stomach?You'll find all these elements in Donners of the Dead.The story starts out in 1851 with Eve Smith, a half white half American Indian girl, who is basically treated like Cinderella by her aunt and uncle. She works hard doing different tasks on her uncle's ranch, while her pampered precious cous [...]

      Karina Halle does not shy away from writing books that go against the grain. She writes unique, distinctive works that leave me and thousands of other readers coming back to her novels time and time again. Just for one day I'd like to live inside her brain just to see what kinds of creepy and exciting things are stored up there. I was intrigued to read this book for its historical tie-in to the famous Donner party story. In the mid-1800's, a group of pioneers got trapped in the harsh, snowy cond [...]

      My rating: 3.5 of 5 starsI received this book free from the Author for the Blog Tour in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.‘It was more than a sense or a smell, picking up on who was here before. There was a feeling that something terrible happened here and that feeling was snaking up my body, intent to drown me in it.’It’s 1851 and in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, 18 year old half-native Eve Smith is appro [...]

      4.5 STARS[image error] “There is no me. There are only monsters inside of angels and angels inside of monsters. Choose wisely.” Another knockout by Karina Halle!!!! This one takes us back to the 1850’s, set in the newly settled western US territory, deep in the Sierra Nevada mountains. It is an extremely creative story about a young half breed girl commissioned as a tracker by a small search party of men heading into the mountains looking for a group of settlers who were lost in the mounta [...]

      I just got horror fix and it was oh-so-good!First off, I love Karina Halle's Experiment in Terror series so hard. She does scary very, very well. Though she's become immensely popular for her contemporary new adult Artist Trilogy, I honestly believe her voice excels when it comes to horror. Red Morning Sky (#3 in Experiment in Terror)is one of my all-time favorite horror novels. It scared the ever loving life out of me.Therefore, when I heard she was doing a standalone horror novel and it would [...]

      3.5 starsReview posted on Way Too Hot Books.Donners of the Dead was good. I was not blown away by the awesomeness like with other Karina Halle’s books, but this one was very good too.Why I liked it, well this is a historical novel (but hey you, history haters, don’t give up on this yet), with some supernatural elements thrown in (zombies), horror (you will be creeped out) and of course, some steamy romance. Why I was particularly looking forward to this novel was because it was based on real [...]

      BR with Her Grace. :D <3Karina Halle?Supernatural?Romance?SOLD!I devoured this book! I loved everything about it. No, I don't give a fuck about historical inaccuracies! I read fiction to relax. If I want to find out when words like "testosterone" or "calories" were first used, I'll refer to a dictionary, thank you very much! I mean, I can just imagine readers googling all kinds of historical information from this book and then complaining they didn't enjoy the reading experience? I believe on [...]

      Another brilliant read by Karina Halle that will make you check under your bed before you go to sleepThis book really has everything: A strong yet vulnerable and very likeable heroine with an interesting heritage. A grouchy, scruffy and extremly sexy former Texas Ranger who will make your every wet dream come true (seriously ladies, get ready for Jake McGraw!).As usual Karina presents us a well thought out story and a lot of unique ideas. This hard and unyielding world is full of shady character [...]

      5 stars “God didn’t create monsters. Monsters created themselves.”Okay…Apparently I like reading about zombies. That is seriously weird because I can’t even watch scary movies. Also my favorite book series is EIT so yeah…Karina Halle is THAT GOOD!!! Eve Smith is the only hope for finding what Jake McGraw and his men are looking for. The half-native girl is known to have the best tracking skills in the area. But is this going to enough when the monsters come out?!Jake is a jackass and [...]

      ★★★★½Believe it or not, before reading this book I had never before heard about the Donner Partyor maybe I should say I don't remember ever hearing about it. However my husband appears to know all the ins and out of this piece of history so he shared it with me when he realized how it related to this book. So for all the other readers out there who also don't remember never heard about the Donner history, here's a brief summary I found HERE. "In the spring of 1846, a group of nearly 90 [...]
