Experiment in Terror Fans, Guess What? I Have a Dex-centric Novella Blurb & Cover Reveal! *squeeeeee*

Remember when Karina Halle teased us with the “possibility” of a novella from Dex’s POV if  “On Demon Wings” makes it into the Goodreads Awards finals?

“… BUT if I make it to the finals, then you get a new Dex-Files and a free scene and I get to do a happy dance!”

Well guess what? She’ll be releasing it whether she makes it in, or not! YAY US!!! ‘Cause she loves us, and ’cause she knows WE LOVE DEX!!!!

She says:

“I even have a cover. And a blurb. And a date. February 14th. Happy Valentine’s Day!”

“And With Madness Comes the Light” – An Experiment in Terror Novella #6.5

The Man. The Mystery. The Madness.

Dex Foray has never been anyone’s fool – until he missed his chance for happiness with Perry Palomino. Broken and alone, Dex has no choice but to rise from the ashes Perry left behind and find his own path to redemption. But nothing in Dex’s life has ever come easy, especially when there’s a dark madness waiting in the wings.

Told from Dex’s POV, And With Madness Comes the Light spans the time period from the end of Lying Season (Book #4) until the beginning of Into the Hollow (Book #6). If you were every wondering what really happened to Dex while Perry was gone, now is your chance.

The books melds together some of the Dex Files scenes, but it’s basically a full novella, inc all of what you saw of him in On Demon Wings and some Into the Hollow as well :)

Najla Qamber is the cover artist!”

Oh yessss!! As much as I was feeling Perry’s heartache through that whole section of the series, and as much as I had a “feeling” I knew what Dex was thinking/feeling too, there will be nothing better than to experience it (now that we know just how deep and emotional Dex is), through his eyes. Thank you SO much for this, Karina!

P.S. EVERYONE!! As of today, we just found out Karina’s “On Demon Wings” made it into the Goodreads finals!! One more time to vote. Here is the direct link to her category: http://www.goodreads.com/choiceawards/best-romance-books-2012#74884-Best-Horror

Ok, so I hadn’t heard of this series until last week (where have I been, right?!). I am a bit worried they will be too scary for me, cos I’m a wimp! Are they very scary?? This Dex guy you all love makes me want to take the risk! :)

Clare this is not your usual “horror” – scary parts, sure, but their actual potential “love” story (together and apart) takes the cake in this series. OMG you don’t want to miss them.

Here is a link to the FAQ I wrote about the series and the very question you just asked:

The Experiment in Terror Series – Intrigued Readers Want to Know…

Rebecka November 19, 2012 at 11:30 AM

You know the first thing I did when I got online this morning was check to see who made it into the finals. I’m pulling for so many different books. (Romace is such a tricky catagory!!) So happy for Karina. So happy that we get more Dex. That man is sex on a stick.

Lea November 19, 2012 at 11:37 AM

I am so excited! Already voted and am impatiently awaiting Valentine’s Day. I hope there are some yummy Into the Hollow scenes!!

Amanda Gale November 19, 2012 at 11:40 AM

How exciting!

I got the first book free several months ago and left it not really knowing if I’d like it. Then in October when she had the others at .99 cents I picked it up and read it. I have to say i was leary of a horror book but you seemed to talk about it alot and well it seemed you loved the series so I got them all and turns out I loved them too.

Can’t wait for another of Dex’s POV.

Angie H. November 19, 2012 at 11:51 AM

Sweeeeet! Need a Dex fix now, but will wait for the quality goods from Karina ;)

Maureen November 19, 2012 at 12:11 PM

Mariel November 19, 2012 at 12:12 PM
