It’s one thing to bring the woman you love back into your life. It’s another to try and keep her there. For Dex Foray, convincing Perry Palomino to open herself to their burgeoning relationship has been more challenging than hunting ghosts, battling demons and stalking Sasquatch combined. Add in the fact that the only way they can keep their Experiment in Terror show running is to take on a third partner in the form of the mysterious Maximus Jacobs — all while investigating a sinister voodoo sect in New Orleans — and you’ve got the perfect Southern storm and a recipe for disaster. Luckily, Dex has never been one to back down, even when his life –and heart — are on the line.
Come Alive is told from Dex’s POV.
I’m pretty sure there is nothing better than an Experiment in Terror book written in Dex’s POV.
Come Alive might just be my favorite of all the EIT books.
Karina’s writing just gets better and better. The plot is more twisted. The story itself scarier.
There are so many things happening in Come Alive.
Dex and Perry are trying to find their way, together, in a new relationship.
The Experiment in Terror show is in jeopardy.
Dex’s new nemesis, Maximus douchecanoe Jacob is back.
There’s a trip to New Orleans.
That’s when the fun really begins. We’re not just dealing with ghosts anymore either. Now we have zombies too but not in the literal sense. It’s hard to explain but once you read you’ll get a better idea. This definitely had a more mystery/thriller feel to it. We’re taken into the underbelly of New Orleans. Places where no one is safe and no one hears you scream. It’s dark and dangerous to the max.
I loved every paragraph, every sentence, every word.
As far as I’m concerned there will never be enough Dex. He’s still just as brash, obnoxious, paranoid, and even crazy. But this time it’s not all because of demons or ghosts. Now Dex is suffering from something way more serious.
Watching Dex struggle with his own insecurities is refreshing. He always comes across as an asshole who doesn’t care. But us Dex fans, we know just how sweet and sensitive he really is. He hides behind those words of his.
There are definitely some HUGE revelations in this book. Things I NEVER saw coming. Things I was shocked to find out. Things I was sad to find out. There were twists and turns that had me twisting and turning. So much so that I found it hard to breathe. I was gasping with “oh no’s” many times.
EIT fans will absolutely love Come Alive. I’m starting Ashes to Ashes next!
