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.***
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So OK, I now kind of get why many people are in love with Dex. I typically like my BBFs well over six feet but Dex definitely is still very swoon-worthy.
I do have to say though that I’m still not a hundred percent convinced about the whole ghost hunter thing. I don’t know, I think I just feel a bit of a disconnect on that regard; like I still don’t quite understand why Perry’s experiencing all those things. Also, the action wasn’t as gripping as it should probably have been, for me.
Having said that, I’m already looking forward to reading about their next ‘ghostly’ encounter. It helps too that I love Perry and I can’t wait to see how things develop between her and Dex.
