"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. " -- Rose Kennedy

“I am an invisible man. No I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe: Nor am I one of your Hollywood movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, simply because people refuse to see me.”  -- Ralph Ellison

“Without knowledge, life is no more than the shadow of death.”  -- Molière

Darkhouse (Experiment in Terror)

Darkhouse - Karina Halle I'm not sure of what to think about this book. I suppose i can start with the easy stuff. It was well written and a mostly smooth ride. There was some parts that felt a bit choppy. I liked Perry for the most part. Didn't like Dex most of the time. And i esp don't like the fact of a possible romance with Perry and Dex when he's already taken. And really he's a bit of an ass.I however loved the spooky'ness and the thrills. The lighthouse scenes was awesome. I would like to know a lot more than what was shown. Like how she knew all that and does the world know that ghost's exists or only higher ups or are the others blind or only those with whatever gift/curse that Perry has. And obviously there's something up with Dex as well. They could both see the clown lady and it seems no one else could. And can his mood swings only be contributed to his bipolar or is there something else going on. Oh yea and i really hate his lies and his carelessness with Perry So many questions and i think, not enough meat on those subjects. I want to know more, but at the same time i'm not sure if i wanna continue reading the series. There was something missing for me, something that should have snagged my attention but didn't.I can only give it 3 stars because it was neither good or bad it just was.
