    This is a quick, but important novella for the EIT team. We get the fun of a EIT book with a little spookiness, but more importantly, character development. We get to see Perry grow and change a bit as she comes into herself and shows more confidence. And is that admiration and caring that Dex is showing toward her? I think it may be! Read this one. It is totally worth it!

    One of the best novellas I have read. I wish we cold have explored the paranormal element a little more but then it wouldn't be a novella. The story wrapped up nicely, and other than having to be a little short on details due to length, didn't feel rushed. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love Dex & Perry and can't get enough of their adventures. Ready to start the next one!

    The Benson is a novella written by one of my favorite horror/gho

    The Benson is a novella written by one of my favorite horror/ghost story
    authors of all time – Karina Halle. If you regularly read my reviews,
    you’ve no doubt come across my reviews of her previous novels,
    Darkhouse, Red Fox and Dead Sky Morning. I love her Experiment in Terror
    series, focused on two intriguing, enjoyable and kick-ass characters
    Perry and Dex who have more chemistry than a chemistry lab and are just
    plain cool. The Benson is a novella that takes place between Red Fox and
    Dead Sky Morning and is a quick, fun read that shows the complex
    relationship between Perry and Dex, adds some ghosts and legends in the
    mix and takes place at the legendary hotel The Benson. This story walks
    the border between short story and novella, so I can’t tell you too much
    without giving away any spoilers. What I can tell you is that it’s an
    intriguing short story, with the characters we’ve grown to love and that
    it takes place in a haunted hotel that’s now number one on my want to
    visit list. Perry and Dex meet up with the spirit of an old sea captain
    for their amateur YouTube show on ghost hunting and from that point on,
    things are about to get a lot scarier. Once again, Karina Halle’s
    writing is spot-on. Her characters are realistic, emotional and
    downright fun. The dynamics between Perry and Dex are enough to keep me
    reading, and when you add the tension and suspense, I’m hooked. While
    the story is very short, you can’t miss out on it if you’re a fan of
    Experiment in Terror. If you’re new to the series, start with Darkhouse.
    If you’re a fan of ghosts, paranormal mysteries and romance, you will
    love this series.
