Review: And With Madness Comes the Light (Experiment in Terror #6.5) by Karina Halle


The Man. The Mystery. The Madness.

Dex Foray has never been anyone’s fool – until he missed his chance for happiness with Perry Palomino. Broken and alone, Dex has no choice but to rise from the ashes Perry left behind and find his own path to redemption. But nothing in Dex’s life has ever come easily, especially when there’s a dark madness waiting in the wings.

Told from Dex’s POV, And With Madness Comes the Light is short story/novella that spans the time period from the end of Lying Season (Book #4) until the end of On Demon Wings (Book #5). If you were ever wondering what really happened to Dex while Perry was gone – his journey to Dex 2.0 – now is your chance.

*****WARNING***** This novella is not a standalone and contains spoilers for Experiment in Terror Books #1-5. It also contains harsh language and scenes of a sexual nature*******

Again, love this series!  And this is told from Dex’s POV.  Ah, gotta love Dex!  It starts with his and Perry’s break up, or break down, whatever you want to call it.  And follows him through his transformation to Dex 2.0.

I loved being able to get inside his head, to see what he was feeling and going through during their separation.  His struggle to become something better, for himself and for Perry.  This story made me love him much more.  Initially in the series, he seems kinda like an ass.  But as the series continues, you see he’s not as much of an ass, or pig, as he tries to portray.

Love this novella.  It was short, quick, and interesting.  Excellent character development for Dex, delving deeper into his emotional state to you understand him much more.

I obviously give this one a 5 out of 5!  Unfortunately, I have to wait until June for the next book, which will be told entirely from Dex’s POV.  It will be interesting to have it from his POV only.  I’m hoping I like the full length novel as much as this novella from his POV.
