Overview

With Book #2 of the Experiment in Terror Series, Perry Palomino and Dex Foray trade in the stormy Oregon coast for the unforgiving deserts of New Mexico. In the for­got­ten town of Red Fox, a Navajo cou­ple is tor­tured by things unseen and by motives unknown. Wild ani­mals slink through their house in the dark, a bar­rage of stones pound their roof nightly, and muti­lated sheep car­casses are turn­ing up on their prop­erty. Armed with a cam­era and just enough to go on, Perry and Dex travel to the des­o­late locale, hop­ing to film the super­nat­ural occur­rences and add cred­i­bil­ity to their flail­ing web­cast. Only their show has a lot more work­ing against them than just grow­ing pains. Tested by dubi­ous ranch hands, a ghost from Dex's past, and shapeshift­ing decep­tion, the ama­teur ghost hunters must learn to trust each other in order to fight the most ancient of myths...or die trying.

Red Fox is the sequel to Darkhouse and the middle child in the Experiment of Terror series. I eagerly awaited the release of Karina Halle's second book after loving the first, Darkhouse. Although there is some recapping and background information given in the first chapter, I highly recommend reading the first book and not skipping in order to get the full personality, connection and investment in the characters - especially, Perry and Dex. Stand alone, I'm afraid readers won't develop the attachment. With that said, the story itself deals with a new adventure or should I say, nightmarish weekend. This time confronting Navajo mythology, including skinwalkers, and framed by a New Mexico setting. Red Fox is unique because although it has a similar thread when compared to Darkhouse (the paranormal) it is not the same story, different setting. I liked the variation from haunting ghosts to Navajo shapeshifters and the characters reactions to the experience through their inexperience. Poor Perry gets pretty beat up in this one and the tension between Dex and her increases to the point your screaming, "Just kiss each other!" For me, this is a positive and rather refreshing take on sexual tension. It is sweet, vulnerable, restrained and leading somewhere (I hope). As I mentioned in my previous review, the flawed characters are attractive, relatable and oddly heroic. Perfection is not a looming attribute and it is in this depiction of life that draws me in and keeps me reading. Okay, bring on book number three because I'm really hoping Jenn gets kicked to the curb and Perry manages to break away from her parents. We'll see....

1st let me say i think it is bullsh*t i could not buy this on my Nook, so i had to buy it from Smashwords..Anyway, on to Red Fox, this book is even better than i expected. Perry and Dex head down to New Mexico to a little town called Red Fox. A couple there is being taunted by something or someone. Stones being thrown at the house, animals running through the house, and sheep turning up dead..Add into the mix Dex's old college "friend" Maximus, and some friends at the ranch, along with lets say not friends, and you've got yourself one hell of a ride. Better than any roller coster. I swear i actually had adrenaline rushes, but that can be said for every book in the EIT series.. Love it. But i might be a little bias, since i think this is hands down the best series ever..

This was a fantastic book. It put into lightsome what about how dex feels about perry. Im not a big fan of max. Team Dex and Perry all the way! It kept me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out who the skin walker was!

Read the first one. Need the 2nd one. Why 4 out of for nook?

After months of searching, I was extremely grateful when Karina sent me a copy for my Nook. I was so excited to finally have it my hot little hands that I read it in a day. You can now find a Nook-friendly version on Smashwords. There's no such thing as a sophomore slump here, folks. Karina brings on the drama and fast-paced action. Perry is one of those characters that everyone will love, since there's a little bit of everyone in Perry.

I'm giving this book 5 stars, even though I was disappointed that I couldn't get it via B&N on my Nook (but as someone mentioned, that's not the author's fault.) I loved that Perry & Dex go to New Mexico and meet some seriously different people. Problems are running rampant on a Navajo couple's farm, and a long ago friend of Dex's has asked Dex and Perry to come out to help. Is it possible that it's just teenagers playing around or something more mysterious and sinister, a skinwalker? Perry is the forced to deal with some incredible, supernatural moments; while Dex is there to help pick her back up once she is knocked down, time and time again. There were some seriously creepy moments and I love to be scared. In this book, we get more insight into who Dex is and he becomes more endearing. There have to be things that happened in his past to make him as lost as he appears sometimes. His college friend allows us a glimpse of him and things that have happened. Perry once again is a dynamo heroine. I'm amazed at her bravery and determination. Her feelings for Dex are subtly described, and aren't outrageously flirtatous, yet there is a feeling that they are like magnets and are drawn to each other. Like their souls already know and love each other. Luckily, they get to pretend to be married, so they can make their hosts, the Navajo couple, feel comfortable. At the same time, as a reader, I loved this because it gives them more time alone and puts them in situations where their relationship has to evolve based on this pretense. (I love the dancing in the bar scene.) If creepy, truly scary books are something you like, this was probably a 6 on my scary scale. I guess at times I felt more of an uneasy feeling at times than scared. My friend, who also read this, truly was scared. So maybe I'm not the best judge. I think the author did a very nice job balancing the paranormal with the relationships and emotional issues in the book. A very great read and I look forward to more from this author.

This was an excellent entry in the series and I really enjoyed it. Ignore the one star reviews that are only complaints about it not being available on the Nook. It's not fair to the author or potential fans to judge a book you haven't even read.

I've made it abundantly clear that I loved Book 1 in the Experiment in Terror series, Darkhouse. Because I felt so strongly about that book, I was a little nervous to get started on Book 2, Red Fox. Crises averted, because I loved Red Fox even more (if that's possible)! In Red Fox, New Mexico, Perry and Dex, struggling to save their show, search amongst old Navajo traditions and legends to find the truth. the author did an amazing job giving the visualization for the scenery. The arid desert, the harsh climate, all felt impossible alive. I felt a part of the story, as if I should be swiping the dust and grime off my own self. The tension between the characters was palpable. I found myself squirming through the tense moments right along with Perry. In Red Fox, author Karina Halle expanded beautifully upon the characters she created in Darkhouse. We,the readers, are given more insights into what makes Perry and Dex tick. In this book, Dex becomes a more vulnerable, open character. Through Max, an old friend of Dex's, Perry learns about his past, the tragic history that made him who he is today. Dex is still the same funny, slightly strange guy who we learned to love in Darkhouse. He's has an alluring quality that draws you in, hoping you can "fix" him. Then in the next moment, says something so bizarre or off-putting, it sends you hurtling straight back to Earth. Perry is still the same self-deprecating, sarcastic, and captivating girl we met in Darkhouse. Besides dealing with her strange new path, she must also contend with her condescending parents, who have little faith (or knowledge) in what she's doing. But, as a character, she comes more into her own in Red Fox. She becomes more assertive, gaining confidence and assurance in her abilities and decisions. She still has an insane ability to get herself into ridiculous situations. And now she is stuck in the middle of the desert with Dex, hoping he won't come unhinged. As suspenseful as paranormal activity they are dealing with is, that has nothing on the sexual suspense between Dex and Perry. The magnetism between them is bananas. In Red Fox, they are pushed closer than ever before. Sharing a room, sharing a bed. Not only must they fight for the survival of their lives, I'm not so sure their hearts will survive. This couple is driving me insane, in a good way. I am praying for a spectacular payoff in the end! I truly expect them to just literally attack each other one day, hopefully soon. I don't think, short of being completely ridiculous, I can encourage you more strongly to read this series. It has quickly moved to the top of my favorites list. This book left me dying. I want to read Book 3, Dead Sky Morning, now.
