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!
