Perry Palomino has fought her demons — and won — but the battle is far from over. She's now left broken and on her own leaving behind her life and family in Portland to focus on giving Dex Foray — and the Experiment in Terror show — a second chance. But their past mistakes continue to tease and test their relationship as does the wild and desolate terrain of the Canadian Rockies. The snow-covered peaks and ravenous forests hide an urban legend too unbelievably frightening to be true and the only way the duo has a chance of surviving is if Perry can let in the very man who sent her to hell and back.


What an adventure, and with no ghost involved but a legend/myth! Even though this instalment may be considered less creepy than the others, never say a Bigfoot doesn't give you shivers. So I suppose having a Dex 2.0 is comforting in this scenario. Dex 2.0? You heard it right, something happened and both our hero and heroine are different in some way...But, more importantly, they're a Team again and the old Dex and Perry seem to be back and ready to make you laugh even in every inappropriate moment. You gotta love that!

Thanks to a beautiful narration, we get a huge adrenaline rush throughout the action scenes, and all the sexual tension (which is a lot!) mixed to angst sometimes really tears you apart. Badly. Having been in Dex's mind ("The Dex-Files") helped me understand him better and feel his pain, so I saw his point here and, I'm sorry Perry, but for once I'm taking his side.

Leave it to Karina Halle to make you all giddy and warmed up a moment and a complete mess another. Leave it to me to pick the next instalment without even thinking about it!

RATING: 4.5/5
