**The dramatic conclusion to the Experiment in Terror Series.**

Perry Palomino and Dex Foray.

On their own, they’re uniquely brilliant. Together, they’re an unstoppable team.

Until now.

Because after everything the duo has encountered, they haven’t come across an evil quite like this. An evil that has been years in the making, an evil that will stop at nothing until they, and everyone they care for, are destroyed.

Dex and Perry’s love has survived a multitude of sins.

But can it survive the end?

“Sometimes your instincts were wrong. Your body wants you to survive but sometimes there are more important things than just surviving.”


I am still shocked that this series is over and I only take comfort in knowing that we may get glimpses of Perry & Dex while reading Ada’s new series. GO LITTLE FIFTEEN!

So this one picks up exactly where the other one left off. It moves fast, so hold on! A much darker story than the others, though it seems that each book in the series was darker than the last. With this one, I found myself holding my breath more often than not.

You most definitely cannot read this book unless you have read the others. So much of the story involves both of their pasts and so much more. Many of our questions are finally answered and all the loose ends are tied in pretty little bows. OK, not pretty little bow, that just wouldn’t be EIT, but they care at least cauterized in some manner. I cannot tell you much about the book without adding spoilers, but if you have already read the other books in the series, you are already sold on this one, I’m sure.

“She was in my arms and she was safe and I was safe and the rest of the world could go to hell for all I cared.”

So let’s start with everyone’s favorite ghost hunter, Dex. As always, Dex is dreamy in a foul-mouthed, dirty-minded kind of way. He charms you from the beginning to end. With this book, however, he is forced to face some horrible demons, no pun intended, from his past. It almost hurt to read what he was feeling and experiencing. Dex has never been so vulnerable. Perry, on the other hand, just gets stronger with every step. She doesn’t just face her fears, runs through them.

I think my favorite thing about this book is that there was never unnecessary BS between Dex & Perry. The outside forces were enough. Their relationship was as it always is. Strong, quirky and full of love & respect.

“Perry, I love you,” he said, voice gruff and full of conviction. “I love you absolutely, resolutely. There is no question, no doubt. This love just is. It exists and because it exists, I exist …
“You, only you, just you as you are, are my reason for being.”

A huge shout out to The Ginger and Ada. Even Perry’s parents play a huge role in this book. It was fabulous the way they brought them all together for this final fight. Hell, it was epic.

This series was effortless to read. I never got bored; I always wanted to know what was on the next page. I ached for the characters, I cheered for them, I loved & hated, laughed & cried and I already miss them all. It is a five star series. Hands down.

I give this book 5 STARS and pair it with Dex’s favorite, whiskey. Cheers to Dex and Perry! Thanks for the adventures!
