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.
It definitely says something about a series when you finish one book and immediately purchase the next… (sometimes even BEFORE you finish 😉 )
I think it goes without saying that I absolutely love this series. It’s smart, sexy and absolutely scares the pants off me. I’m not a huge fan of horror, but when you throw Dex and Perry into the mix, how can I resist?
Dex definitely had his work cut out for him in Into the Hollow. Not only is his job on the line, but, more importantly, his relationship with Perry. He knows she has a right to hate him, but he had his reasons for acting the way he did. He uses the opportunity of them being alone to his advantage. He needs to convince her that he loves her and always has, but there’s the little obstacle of a real life monster that gets in the way.
There are a lot of reasons why this book is my favorite in the series so far. Both Dex and Perry’s feelings are raw and the hurt is fresh. The danger is crazy because they’re battling the weather and terrain, their feelings, a monster and at least one crazy person. I have to admit that even though I understood Perry’s reluctance, Dex won me over a lot faster than he won over Perry and that kind of frustrated me. Maybe it was being in Dex’s head in the Dex Files where readers got a glimpse into what Dex had gone through up until the beginning of Into the Hollow. Whatever the reason I was ready for Perry to give him a chance. *sigh*
Both Perry and Dex went through unmistakable changes in their trip through the veil and there are more consequences to that than even they know. They came a long way by the end of Into the Hollow, but they still have a long way to go. Stay tuned for reviews for Come Alive and Ashes to Ashes, as well as the Dex’s last novella, And With Madness Comes the Light. Yeah, I’m a little behind in my reviews, but once I got going, I couldn’t stop 😉
