If you’ve been following along the last few months, you already know I’m a huge fan of Karina Halle’s “Experiment in Terror” series. I devoured the first two, Darkhouse and Red Fox,  in record time, waited oh so impatiently for the third one, Dead Sky Morning, and read it in one night, and am now literally tapping my foot and doing a little “come on, already” jig as I wait for the release of “Lying Season.” Dex and Perry are, by far, my favorite “will they or won’t they (they darn well better!)” couple, and I really need to know what happens next, especially after what went down in Dead Sky Morning.

For those of you, like me, who are craving a little Dex and Perry fix while you wait for Lying Season, head over to Smashwords and grab a free copy of The Benson, (Experiment in Terror 2.5). It takes place between Red Fox and Dead Sky Morning at the Benson Hotel in Portland. Those who have read the third book will recall that Perry alluded to events at the hotel. I wondered what happened there, so I’m looking forward to filling in that gap. I’m reading the novella now, and it’s pretty awesome. If you haven’t read the other books in the series, while you’re on Smashwords, check them out. The e-book versions are only $2.99 a piece, and they’re totally worth it if you enjoy quirky, really edgy paranormal mysteries.
