With Book Two of the Experiment in Terror Series, Perry Palomino and Dex Foray trade in the stormy Oregon coast for the unforgiving deserts of New Mexico.
In the forgotten town of Red Fox, a Navajo couple is tortured by things unseen and by motives unknown. Wild animals slink through their house in the dark, a barrage of stones pound their roof nightly, and mutilated sheep carcasses are turning up on their property. Armed with a camera and just enough to go on, Perry and Dex travel to the desolate locale, hoping to film the supernatural occurrences and add credibility to their flailing webcast. Only their show has a lot more working against them than just growing pains. Tested by dubious ranch hands, a ghost from Dex’s past, and shapeshifting deception, the amateur ghost hunters must learn to trust each other in order to fight the most ancient of myths…or die trying. -Goodreads
This book had my holding on to the edge of my seat. I LOVE the myth and storytelling involved in this book. Red Fox takes place in the deserts of New Mexico. This book is also our first glimpse at the mysterious Maximus (Friend or Foe?)
As much as the frights of poltergeist qualities, dangerous animals and overall distrusting hosts what keeps me coming back is the evolution of Dex and Perry’s relationship.
“It’s our song,” he said. He held out his hand. I took it, as if in slow motion, and let him lead me onto the dance floor.He put one arm around my waist, holding me snuggly against him. It was a different kind of awkward than it was with Maximus. It was a wonderful, head-spinning awkwardness that made my heart beat out of my chest and my knees turn to putty. He held my hand with his other one and grinned at me, our faces so intoxicatingly close that he grazed the top of my head with the felt brim of his hat. I kept my eyes on those cocoa brown orbs of his. It wasn’t hard. And then…then he started singing along with Joel’s voice. Softly, quietly. I was such a sucker right there and then and he knew it, that bastard. If he wasn’t holding me up, my spine would have collapsed in a warm puddle of blissed-out nerves. He leaned further in and sang into my ear, a deep murmur that sent shivers through me that I tried to contain. Why was he doing this to me?”
Their connection is continuing to grow and lines are being blurred. Not only are the constantly flirting but one of the aspects of the story is the two of them pretending to be a married couple. Que the sexual tension! If the relationship between Dex and Percy doesn’t have you hooked then the crap they get themselves into does! UGH I totally need a valium after that adventure…
