Hey everyone!!! So I've been busy coordinating the Dex-Files Blog Tour and I am so excited!!! So this is my pre-tour post to give you a heads up!!! (Yes, all the exclamations are important.) I was hooked, devil horns and all, at the very beginning by what Karina started with Darkhouse. The story arc is unique with great character development. We have Perry, real yet flawed. Maybe more relatable due to her flaws. It has been amazing to see the transformation of her character throughout the series. Also a big part of the EIT series is DEX! What can I say about Dex? Hmmm... He can be obnoxious and over confident yet knows when to say the right things. Well, he often says the wrong things most times too, but hey, that's one thing I love about him.
The daughter of a Norwegian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Vancouver, Canada with trolls and eternal darkness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadistic appreciation for freaking people out. Like many of the flawed characters she writes, Karina never knew where to find herself and has dabbled in acting, make-up artistry, film production, screenwriting, photography, travel writing and music journalism. She eventually found herself in the pages of the very novels she wrote (if only she had looked there to begin with).
Karina holds a screenwriting degree from Vancouver Film School and a Bachelor of Journalism from TRU. Her travel writing, music reviews/interviews and photography have appeared in publications such as Consequence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNomad Travel Guides. She currently splits her time between her apartment in downtown Vancouver and her sailboat, where a book and a bottle of wine are always at hand.
Darkhouse is her first novel and the first one in the Experiment in Terror Series. Things only get better from here on in.
What is The Dex-Files you ask? It's a companion novel (#5.7) in the Experiment in Terror series all told from Dex's POV. Read below for the synopsis on Goodreads.
Expected Publication: August 13th, 2012
The truth is out there...
The Dex-Files is a compilation novel that accompanies the Experiment in Terror Series and is not to be-read as a stand-alone. In the Dex-Files we find a variety of scenes and chapters from the enigmatic Dex Foray's POV from books #1-6 in the series. Some of these scenes have been previously published, albeit from Perry's POV, while other scenes are completely new.
In addition to it not being a stand-alone, the novel also contains some major spoilers and should be read only by those who have read all the published books in the series.
