With all the vampire, werewolf and faerie books out there, it’s easy to become numb to all things supernatural. The antidote? Darkhouse introduces two real and unforgettable characters, Perry Palomino & Dex Foray, amateur ghost hunters who are “attractive, relatable and oddly heroic,” “flawed but loveable,” “slightly crazy” and just the most endearing pair to ever tackle the paranormal…just don’t call them normal.
Darkhouse is a thrilling and sexy new take on concepts like Supernatural and The X-Files, bringing a breath of fresh air to a genre that has been inundated with the dead.
***Darkhouse and the Experiment in Terror series is a horror/romance for mature audiences only. Readers who are easily offended by harsh language should think twice about reading it.***
To begin with, this book is the first horror book I have ever read.
I liked this book, made me feel like I’m a part of the story and to mention that it’s really really creepy one. It was also fun, enjoyable and interesting.
Everything starts with Perry’s nightmares and then, one night, when Perry is visiting her uncle and cousins, she goes to explore the old lighthouse on their property, and runs into Dex Foray. From that point on their lives are intertwined and their story begins.
Perry Palamino, is a 22-years old woman who had very difficult teenage years. She had weight issues, she took drugs, but I found her very down-to-earth.
Dex “Declan” Foray is older, confident and most likely, bipola
r. This makes him unpredictable and the fact that he doesn’t reveal much about himself makes him mysterious too. He seems to be a very complicated man.
I also liked the chemistry between the main characters. I think that Perry and Dex do have a lot in common.
The book it’s well written, paced and balanced. It may not appeal to everyone, but if you are looking for some creepy and interesting story to read, you can absolutely try this one!
Because I find life to be scarier than death.
