Dead Sky Morning by Karina Halle

I know you've been waiting for it. I'm back today to discuss my thoughts on the third book in the Experiment in Terror series, Dead Sky Morning.

Book Summary

With the Experiment in Terror show finding some success, amateur ghost hunters Perry Palomino and Dex Foray embark on their most terrifying investigation yet. A tiny, fog-shrouded island in the rough strait between British Columbia and Washington State has held a dark secret for decades: It was a former leper colony where over forty souls were left to rot, die and bury each other. Now a functioning campground, Perry and Dex spend an isolated weekend there to investigate potential hauntings but as the duo quickly find out, there is more to fear on D’Arcy Island than just ghosts. The island quickly pits partner against partner, spiraling the pair into madness that serves to destroy their sanity, their relationship and their very lives.

My Thoughts

Oh man! Karina wasn't kidding when she described this series as a slow burn. The chemistry between Dex and Perry is sizzling hot (I apologize for typing that, but I can't think of any other way to describe it) and I just want them to figure out that they love each other and get their together.

But that is absolutely not the case. Before they they figure out their shit, they have to film another episode of their web show.

Obviously.

I enjoyed this book very much which is why I rated it 5 stars on goodreads. Not only is the sexual tension between Perry and Dex amazing, but I found this ghost hunting adventure to be the scariest and most exciting yet.

I first started getting freaked out on their journey to visit the island. They spoke with a park ranger who told them that it really wasn't a good idea to sail out to D'arcy island and explore. But of course they didn't listen. They weren't about to give up that easily.

But little by little as they start learning more about the island and the people that used to inhabit it, they realize that things are way more complicated than they originally thought. Their time on the island is not only frightening, but a meddling ghost warns Perry about what is to come between her and Dex, and Perry is terrified when the ghost's warnings begin coming true.

Dead Sky Morning is a great addition to this series because we learn more about Dex's backstory. There are secrets that come out and while Perry knows she needs to ask Dex about it so that she can find out the truth, she also knows that it's not going to be easy to get straight answers out of him.

The story is creepy. I think it might be the creepiest book in the series yet. Take this with a grain of salt because I scare VERY EASILY, but I found myself genuinely scared near the end of the story.

I'm excited to start book 4 in the series very soon. I am on a quest to finish them all before they are taken of Kindle Unlimited in November. Care to join me?

Until next time,
Marian
