in What I am reading today

Lying Season (Experiment in Terror BOOK# 4)
OMG!!! O. M. G.!! Help meeeee!! I have just read one of the most awesome books ever (#4 in the Experiment in Terror series – I TOTALLY TOTALLY get it now, why everyone freaked right out…), and I’m on such an emotional angst-y adrenaline rush right now. AND!!! It ended on a freakin’ cliffhanger and book #5 is waiting for me to read it. BUT!! I have to work and then review #3 & #4 before I can move onto #5. I’m literally shaking. How am I going to live until then!?? How? Won’t someone tell me? I feel like haven’t slept in days.

The buildup to this very book was just so good, but this one… *wow* *phew* *whooooooooo* just took the cake. I…WOW. Shaking. I’m in so much agony, yet delighted to feel this way. Hurts. So. GOOD! Okay… I gotta get back to work (dunno how I’m going to be able to concentrate… but oh well).

P.S. Here is the entire series reading order guide: Karina Halle – Experiment in Terror Series Reading Order and it is totally worth the trip to make it to this book (don’t skip ahead. The build-up is fantastic) and there’s still more to come. This series is ABSOLUTELY making my Top Ten Paranormal series list…

UPDATE: I’ve started an “Experiment in Terror Support Group” in the spoiler forum for those who have a need to discuss. After my reaction to book #4, I DEFINITELY needed some support. ;)

Tell us how you REALLY feel Maryse!!! LOL. I am going to have to go ahead and read it. Not into scary books but sheesh….you have very curious!!!

The paranormal is big in these (ghosts and such) – the two main characters are human, but it is THEM that make the story, ya know? SO good.

I loved this book. I just finished this series and. Can’t tell you how much I loved this. It was pain nd pleasure wrapped neatly in a bundle.

Rebecca @ Crunchings and Munchings June 8, 2012 at 12:52 PM

I LOVED this series too! Perfect creep to sexual tension ratio for maximum reading enjoyment!

Jurisha June 8, 2012 at 1:02 PM

YEA! I am so glad you are loving these as much as I did! This author is AWESOME! (I will say that I had hoped Perry could have at least gotten a punch or a good hair pulling in on Jenn…but I know we can’t have everything. LOL! Have you checked out Karina’s EIT website? There are a few scenes from Dex’s POV including the Red Fox bar/dancing scene. :)

Maryse June 8, 2012 at 1:20 PM

Yep Jurisha I have read ‘em and they were AWESOME BUT!!

I’m so glad I only read them after book #3… so that the “mystery” that is DEX remained a mystery while I read the first few books. I liked wondering… you know. But the dance scene is one of my favorites so far, and to have it from his POV was icing on the cake.

Maryse… Just finished #3 and I am gonna get into #4 ASAP. I read your little entry about Lying Season and you have captured how I feel to a tee. This series just gets better and better. I am going to freak out when it is over. Will I survive #4???

Jurisha June 8, 2012 at 1:35 PM

Maryse Good Point! I didn’t even think about the POV’s since I read them after book #5. I would definitely recommend reading them last.

Maryse June 8, 2012 at 1:36 PM

I’m barely surviving Lise. My work is suffering today… eeeep! But is it worth it. OH YES!!! This is a 5 star read for sure, and one that will make you feel EVERYTHING.

And there’s always book #5 that’s already out and waiting for us… (although I hear… perhaps a cliffhanger too). grrrr!!

HOWEVER I’ve received some good news direct from the author herself. She tweeted:

“Karina Halle‏@MetalBlonde-> @ItsMaryse I promise no cliffhangers in Book #6! ;)


BUT!! I am exhilarated so it’s all very worth it to me.

Kate June 8, 2012 at 8:52 PM

Wow I really struggled to get going with the first book. After reading your post, I’m thinking I might have to power through.

Maryse June 8, 2012 at 9:17 PM

They get better and better as they go, Kate. I’m writing review #3 right now, but #4 was just so BIG!!

Lise June 9, 2012 at 10:31 AM

Maryse….. Help Me… just finished #5 and I can’t breathe. I am also a bit sleep deprived as I finished #4 at 2:00 AM, slept for a few hours and launched right into On Demon Wings. This book is heavy, heavy and ripped me apart. Can’t wait to discuss this one and I do not know how we will survive until #6 BIG *Sigh***

Maryse June 9, 2012 at 11:10 AM

Help you!!? No! HELP ME!!!!!


I’m reading book #5 right now (halfway through) and I think we are all going to need an EIT support group so I’m starting the chat forum now (in the spoiler section)

Maryse June 9, 2012 at 11:15 AM

Okay here it is:


DO NOT GO in if you haven’t completed the series (or if you don’t like spoilers). We’re gonna let it all hang out in there.
