Synopsis from Goodreads:

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, New Mex­ico, 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.

What I Thought:

After reading the first book I knew I was hooked on this series so I bought this one pretty soon after. While I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the first I still had a great time reading it.

There wasn’t anything wrong with it though, I think the fact that it wasn’t singularly on ghosts just wasn’t what I expected especially since I finished this around Halloween. I loved the native feel and the lore and creeps that came up though and I was intrigued as I learned more about it. I was kinda sad how things were resolved at the end but I admit that even with that the book was hard to put down. I also know that the series is only going to get better no matter what kind of supernatural things they will face.

The cute possible romance that I was hoping for at the end of the last book developed just a tiny bit, with her falling more for him. I won’t say what does or doesn’t happens between them, but there’s many more volumes for it to grow if things go well. It didn’t feel more important than anything that was happening, just like the last book, so you don’t have to worry about that. I’m glad this author can manage all the feels with those two and still get such a good story out without anything being overpowered.

So while I didn’t love it as much as the first it’s still such a good installment in this series so far. I can’t wait to read more of these books!
