    Love the premise but-------

    I really like the story idea. I enjoy the "ghost hunter" activities and the chilling ghosts and other beings that Perry and Dex run into and deal with on their adventures. However, I am getting tired of and frustrated by the relationship (or lack of) between Perry and Dex. Do or don't but get off the pot and decide. At first it was realistic and believable now just irritating. I also would like and expect Perry to have had more confidence by now. Her depredation of herself is also getting frustrating. I didn't expect an immediate change but continued progress would be nice as well as more believable. I'm hoping for these situations to improve and progress in subsequent books of this series but judging by the overviews I've read of #4 and 5 of the series I'm not holding my breath that this will happen. I really enjoy these books except for these situations. I will probably read at least the next book but if these problems don't at least improve then I don't think I will be able to continue. Maybe after the relationship issues resolve one way or the other and Perry grows more of a backbone and quits beating herself up I will be able to read these otherwise great books again. The market is overflowing with romance crap and weak females. Please resolve these issues and give me more great urban fantasy that is present in this series.

    Not As good as The others but Still Good

    This series just keeps getting better and better! I was ripped and stretched and pulled in so many directions that I didn't know who to like and who to hate!!!

    Perry Palomino (I just love that name) is still just as psycho, and I love her just the same. There's so much to her I still just don't understand. We know that something happened in the past, but what? We know that her parents are somewhat afraid of her, but why? The author does a wonderful job providing depth to these characters that you wonder if they may be walking down the street next to you.

    Sexy Mr Declan (Dex) Foray is here, and just as annoying as ever with his innuendo's and his flirtations and his brooding. Perry still hasn't broken his shell all the way and its funny how much about him I too want to know. He's such a mystery that sometimes you just want to hit him over the head with a rock (which is exactly what Perry did to him in the book).

    Their relationship is so hot, and cold at the same time. There's so much tension, but at the same time, nothing has happened between them yet. Like the last book, you find yourself saying "Get it on already" and, although the book almost makes you satisfied, it, like Dex, is just a tease! I wanted so much more!!!!

    The terror of the book is somewhat more creepy than the last book. Unlike those, I didn't actually find myself scared to the point that I couldn't sleep, I was more creeped out. There's so much that's creepy about this island. The ghosts and the...others....Trust me, it's pretty unnerving. You'll find yourself flipping forward in the book just to see if there's some salvation on the horizon.

    The only think I didn't like much about this book was the ending. It seemed as if the author wanted the book to end soon and so some of it seemed short, clipped, and not really thought out. I'm not trying to give away any teasers so I'll just say this, one of the escape attempts, we'll call it "Plan Backpack," didn't even seem like it would kind of work in real life. Furthermore, I couldn't picture how it happened in my head. It made me frustrated. Then, things just seemed too neatly wrapped up and fixed for me. I wanted a cliff hanger (don't tell anyone I said that). I wanted some loose ends. It kind of made me feel like the end was not attached to this book.

    Despite those things, I liked the book. I don't think it was quite as good as the others, mainly because of the ending, but it was still a good book. My Rating? 3.5 Stars
