Red Fox - Karina Halle

Short review while I'm on vacation:

Much like the first in this series, Red Fox was interesting, but not entirely riveting. Karina Halle is a master at creating a dark, suspenseful atmosphere that keeps the reader on his/her toes throughout the book. 

The major shortcoming for me is still the characters. Don’t get me wrong. I do really like Perry, and Dex is sexy and mysterious. But I think Perry is just, dare I say it, too real for me. It’s nice to have a heroine who isn’t stick-thin, with a perfect body and perfect personality. On the other hand, I don’t need to be reminded of it every second page. Perry is tough and has a fantastic attitude, but her continuous preoccupation with being less pretty or thin than other girls was annoying. As for Dex, I dig a mysterious man, but not one who we NEVER get to know. 

While Halle is great at creating a suspenseful atmosphere, I still think her writing could be a little tighter. If the premise of there books wasn't so interesting, I might be tempted to leave the series here, but I'll definitely be continuing.
