Review: Dead Sky Morning ( Experiment in Terror #3 ) by Karina Halle

Dead Sky Morning by Karina Halle

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.




From Red Fox, we pretty much know that Perry is in love with her partner, Dex. But we can never understand what that loony guy is thinking. This started off with Dex inviting Perry to his favorite hockey game, prior the filming. Is really fun to read about them doing day to day things without all the high drama and being in life threatening situation. Everything was going great until Dex received a call and he starting to act weird and distance (didn't he always do that?). We even got a dose of Dex gross moment as usual during the hockey's 'Kiss Cam' moment and then he brought her to a stripper club. 

“Who can resist this handsome mug?”
“Complete with rapist facial hair,”

“I guess I am just a pervert with rapist facial hair.”
“Well, you’re my kind of pervert.” 

The mystery in this instalment is surrounding the D'Arcy Island, also know as the leper island where hundreds of lepers died and buried. Most of the book take place at this haunted island with only Dex and Perry (with some ghosts). Who knows even with only two of them, there can be so much drama. They spent more time being mad at each other more than usual. Perry is seeing ghost, but Dex did not and he doesn't want to acknowledge this (maybe he doesn't want to deal with the reality). The creepy island gave me a 'Lost' vibe.

D'Arcy Island
After a game of truth and dare, they both reveal some of their own secrets. Dex told Perry about the call during the hockey game was about and I was like 'What the hell?! Are you kidding me!? If that is not a total mood killer, I don't know what is. I believe Perry's reaction is very much similar to mine. 

Obviously, both Dex and Perry relationship had progress so much from the first book (they even got little hot and heavy this time around), but I hope he can just get rid of the annoying Jenn,although she had yet to appear in the last 3 books. How can someone make me hate them without even making an appearance? Hahah.... But with her constant name pop-up, it is annoying enough. I totally feel for Perry.

Rating 4.5/5
