by Tanya Eby,Luke Daniels,Heather Graham




Not long ago, Scott Bryant would have described himself as an ordinary guy. But one act of heroism has changed his life forever―or at least until the apocalypse occurs. Because the end of the world is on its way. Suddenly and inexplicably possessed of superhuman strength, Scott finds himself allied with the enigmatic and alluring Melanie Regan in a quest to find the mysterious Oracle in hopes of averting the absolute destruction that threatens. Melanie herself has been falling into trances, sketching terrifying visions of future events―and she wants answers. She knows better than Scott where to look for help, but even she cannot fathom the powers that have thrust them together in an epic battle of good against evil. The earth itself will soon turn against its inhabitants, and now mortal and immortal must join forces if any are to survive.

Really good read. I like Ms Graham's books of this genre. I got so caught up in this I read it all the way through until 4:00 am. Thank heaven I am retired!!

I love Heather Graham's books. I have read all of them. This one just fell flat for me. Especially after reading about vampires written by JR Ward and Stephanie Meyers. This was just boring, dull and couldn't wait for it to be over. I am just very disappointed.

Great story of good verses evil. Heather Graham can be depended on to entertain and keep your attention to find out what will happen next. I love the way she mixes characters from previous novels with new characters; the blend of characters is always interesting and intriguing. This book is full of action and surprises with romance thrown in. I could not book the book down until I finished it. I like to read sequels together so I held off reading this book waiting for the others to come out, but I was tired of waiting. I hope that Heather will write the other books because this one was so good but just a teaser. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

This is a story that immediately interested me as the action unfolded and the battle of good against evil began.

Scott Bryant is a normal guy who is out with a couple of buddies when an elederly couple is attacked by a gang. Scott and his friends decide to save the couple. In the heat of battle, the elderly man who was being beaten notices Scott and tells him that he, Scott is Capricorn. With that pronouncement, Scott felt a power come over him and he led the attack against the gang.

The reader witnesses Scott's trying to deal with his new strength. That night, he dreams of the Oracle and saw another, like himself, heading toward this Oracle. This Oracle was a saving place and there was a meaning that Scott couldn't yet, understand. There were also many skeletons that seemed to be evil and coming to life.

Melanie is also beginning to have talents and power she didn't know she had. She decides to take action against a gang robbing on a store owner and assaulting his young clerk. Suddenly Scott is by her side and they overcome the robbers and save the clerk.

Heather Graham has a talent for making things seem possible and there is something about the bravery of these characters that is refreshing and draws the readers to them. In today's world where many people don't want to become involved when trouble occurs, these characters make a choice to help others.

We are also aware of sinister forces that are forecast.

Told in a manner that reminded me of Stephen King's "The Stand," Scott and Melanie follow a spiritual summons to Rome to Sister Maria Elizabeth. This is reminiscent of the ancient but wise Mother Abigail who is the leader of the good survivors in "The Stand."

The elderly Sister Maria Elizabeth is a beacon to others and informs Scott and Milanie that when the others arrive, the battle for earth will begin.

Heather Graham's work is highly entertaining. Although the real action is slow to unfold, the characters are interesting and fully developed. The plot of "Dust to Dust" is clever and well developed.
I've read most of Heather Graham's books. Some are good and some aren't, but this one is the worst. I was excited to find this one because it continues with characters from her older books. Unfortunately, the story is one battle after another against skeletons. There are only so many ways a skeleton can be killed and this book has shown all these methods over and over again. Shoot them, chop off their heads, throw holy water at them, etc... And then they rise up again everywhere. And the scenario goes through the same shooting, beheading, and so on.
From this book, I finally understand the pet peeve of many reviewers about Show and Not Tell. This story is told by different point of view in the same-sounding voice. The only action is the beheading and so on. And of course, not to forget the few love scenes that are done in the same way over and over.
I believe I will keep this book as an example of how not to write.
