When the life you wanted has crumbled beneath your fingers, there’s nothing left to do but pick up the pieces and soldier on. You’ve done this before.

But what happens when you no longer feel like yourself anymore? When fires spontaneously start-up around you, when you hear growling coming from underneath your bed, and you no longer recognize your face in the mirror. What happens then?

Ghost-hunter Perry Palomino doesn’t have much time to find out. Now, the evil she used to hunt is a lot closer to home. It’s inside of her, taking over her life bit-by-terrifying bit, and there’s only one person who can help her.

If part of her doesn’t kill him first.

If you read Lying Season you probably felt like I did or actually did what I did…*sat in silence and said WHAT!* But thank goodness for On Demon Wings which picks up right where the readers left off. Karina Halle never ceases to amaze me with how she can make me feel so attached to her characters and captivates me into her story. On Demon Wings is what I believe the most important piece in the puzzle of what happening with Perry and Dex.

Perry is trying to move on, recover from the major impact Dex had left her with. Luckily for the first time her parents seem to be understanding and her sister Ada is by her side every step of the way. But something doesn’t seem right or feel right and Perry is about to discover that the evil she’s encountered in the past is now inside of her. Bit by bit Perry is loosing herself and no one seems to believe her but her sister and the one man she was trying to forget.

Perry is such a trooper; this girl has been through so much hell I don’t think I would be in the right mind after everything. But she really is trying to start over, a new job, new friends and getting her relationship with her family back in the right place. I felt so bad for Perry in this one and that’s saying something but she always been put in tough situations. But she looses a lot, is betrayed by someone she thought believed her and in the end seems to be loosing control of herself. I could go on and on about how many emotional shenanigans this poor girl goes though but I don’t want to give too much away.

Ada, bless this girls heart! I really loved her in this book. She had her sisters back when no one else did and she always knew the right thing to do. She gets a lot more insight into what has been happening to her sister and even realizes that she might be the only one to help Perry stay alive.

There is a major character that steps back into the picture and connects with Perry and even her family. If you don’t remember Maximus well get ready because this guy will shock you major in this book and I cant tell you why. Beside him Perry’s mother and father take on a bigger role, which I finally felt they were beginning to understand their daughter and be real parents. Let just say Perry discovers the truth behind her grandmother and a connection to Dex in her families past, which makes Perry question her family. Dex really makes a major impact in this story, but that all I can say.

Overall, wow! Just wow! I really can’t begin to explain how much this book not only scared the hell out of me but also how much I loved it! The story was creepy and I really needed the lights on to read it because I swear if anything made a noise I would jump out of my seat. Halle adds some major twists that will keep you begging for more, which I’m doing right now! I highly recommend the Experiment in Terror series.

This is a mature young adult/ adult novel, with some minor sexual content and very scary moments. I highly recommend this to fans of Stephen King, who like some really great twist with mystery and intense moments.

  1. I love the cover. Five stars kicks much ass. Adding this to my to read pile.

  2. I don't get scared of much. My mind rationalizes things too much to allow it. It's annoying sometimes, haha. But I guess if I were to be put in a life and death situation, then I might get scared. It'd be hard not to.
