Come Alive (Experiment in Terror, #7)

Come Alive - Karina Halle

Overall, I really liked the book, just not, perhaps, as much as some of the others in the series. It took awhile to get going, and it's not that I didn't enjoy the parts early in the book set in Seattle--I did, but it almost got a little tedious at times. Plus, I love the ghost hunting aspect of these books over everything else, and I was really missing that early on. And, while I love that Dex and Perry are finally together, I'd have liked a couple less sex scenes (in the beginning at least), and a little bit more character development.


Which brings me to my next point. I've discovered I like Dex a whole lot more when I'm not spending the entire book inside his brain. His point of view is great in the novellas and shorts stories, but an entire book was a bit much, and I know that he pretty much has sex on the brain, but I'd have loved to hear a little bit less about how great her tits and ass are and more about her. I feel like Perry's character was somewhat lost this time around. Glad to see Maximus was a little bit better fleshed out this time, though.

Still...once they all got to New Orleans things picked up a lot, and I flew through the rest of the book pretty quickly.

Glad to see we're back to Perry's point of view for the next one, though.
