I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The dramatic conclusion to the Experiment in Terror Series.
Perry Palomino and Dex Foray.
On their own, they’re uniquely brilliant. Together, they’re an unstoppable team.
Because after everything the duo has encountered, they haven’t come across an evil quite like this. An evil that has been years in the making, an evil that will stop at nothing until they, and everyone they care for, are destroyed.
Dex and Perry’s love has survived a multitude of sins.
But can it survive the end?
“Perry, I love you,” he said, voice gruff and full of conviction.
“I love you absolutely, resolutely. There is no question, no doubt. This love just is. It exists and because it exists, I exist.”
This is by far, one of the hardest reviews I will ever write. When I first stumbled upon the EIT series I wasn’t sure if it would be for me. I had never read horror (besides a few R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike books when I was younger) but after reading such things as “slow-burn romance” and “sexy sarcastic hero” I decided to take a chance and check it out. I had no clue that this series would change my life.
“We were Dex and Perry and our relationship seemed to thrive on the universe being out of order.”
I know that statement comes off as dramatic but reading Darkhouse changed everything for me. For starters, it was one of the first indie books I ever read. At this point in my life I wasn’t aware that there was such a thing as independently published books. Secondly, I found many of my closest friends through our mutual love of this series. And lastly, because of this series I became a blogger. I loved talking all things Dex, Perry and Karina Halle that I wanted to share my love of all these things with others. I owe many things to this series so saying goodbye is bittersweet.
“I love you! Always have, always will. Always!”
Now I could do a standard review and tell you how Dust to Dust is scary, heartbreaking, a perfect circle and an amazing end to my favorite series, but I would like this review to go out in style. So with a nod to a previous post I did last year, 10 Things Experiment in Terror Taught Me, I give you:
5 things Dex and Perry Taught Me
1. Love someone that makes you laugh
“Well, I’m not God. But Perry calls me that sometimes.”
2. Love someone that sings to you
3. Love someone that makes you brave
“We were going down and we were going together. We didn’t win in the end, but together, we couldn’t lose.”
4. Love someone that makes you feel alive
“….because seeing Perry run toward me, her face scrunched in the sheer desire to reach me, did something to my soul. It grabbed at me, clawed at me, made me realize just how damn empty I’d been without her by my side…”
5. Love is something death can’t touch
“I love you. Always. Beyond death.”
These past 2 years have been a wild and crazy ride. I am forever grateful to Karina Halle for giving me a series and characters that have entertained and inspired me. Derry forever!
