DARKHOUSE BY KARINA HALLE BOOK REVIEW

DARKHOUSE BY KARINA HALLE

BLURB FROM GOODREADS: SEE BOOK INFO HERE
There’s always been something a bit off about Perry Palomino. Though she’s been dealing with a quarter-life crisis and post-college syndrome like any other twenty-something, she’s still not what you would call “ordinary.” For one thing, there’s her past which she likes to pretend never happened, and then there’s the fact that she sees ghosts. Luckily for her, that all comes in handy when she stumbles across Dex Foray, an eccentric producer for an upcoming web-cast on ghost hunters. Even though the show’s budget is non-existent and Dex himself is a maddening enigma, Perry is instantly drawn into a world that both threatens her life and seduces her with a sense of importance. Her uncle’s haunted lighthouse provides the perfect catalyst and backdrop for a mystery that unravels the threads of Perry’s fragile sanity and causes her to fall for a man, who, like the most dangerous of ghosts, may not be all that he seems

My thoughts:
Enter Perry Palomino’s world and expect to be riveted to your seat with the creepy story with paranormal overtures. This book was a mesmerizing read. At times, I found myself gripping the book tightly and turning the pages with the light on. Creepy atmosphere prevails in this story leaving goosebumps in its wake. The relationship between the Perry and Dex is complicated and changing at every turn. The main thing I really liked about this book was Perry’s personality and the fact that is she is full figured girl trying to deal with her ghost sight and people’s sterotypes about large women in general. It’s nice to see a main character who is real. I can relate to her feelings and want to applaud her strength and courage. Her journey into the dark recesses of her soul makes you think and really wonder if its the ghosts or really just her mind playing tricks on her. There are many heart stopping moments of pure terror in this book.
This is a page turner that will keep you wondering about ghosts.
5 fairies for this roller-coaster ride of terror with moments of realism.
I’m looking forward to the next book in the series RED FOX

  1. Sounds great. I love it when female protagonists have flaws – especially physical ones. None of us is perfect. It makes the story more real for me.
