As the first of four books bringing together unlikely groups of people to stop the end of the world - ala the Mayan Prophecy of 2012 - it was very heavy on the prophecy and weak on the romance. Scott is a regular guy turned super hero to do his part to save the world, Melanie is a vampire turned dog trainer destined to help him. For the first few chapters of the book they didn't even know each others names, when they finally do she is afraid of him - I found this irrational since he saved her life and uh she's the vampire. Predictably enough one kiss is enough to turn it all around and she can't stop slipping into his bed, shower, etc., despite the looming "end of the world" thing hanging over their heads. Also in the opening letter from Heather Graham she calls this book a stand alone book. Impossible and misleading and she immediately contradicts this claim by refering to a list of her previous books - going all the way back to 1999 - that you "could" read if you wanted the back story on several characters in this book and series. IE: Lucien DeVeau has a fairly big role in this book, but unless you read When Darkness Falls (under the Shannon Drake pseudonym) you have no clue why he's so important. Maggie and Sean from Beneath a Blood Red Moon also have a part in this book, if I hadn't read their story I'd been looking for their sequel. The little tidbits she gives you about these characters have all the earmarks of sequel building, just enough to wet your appetite for more. Will I read the rest of the series? Absolutely. Right after I dig out the other books she mentioned in her letter and refresh my memory on all the back stories. More romance building, less fact flinging, and this would have been aces.

The problem I have with Heather Graham books is once I start them I cannot put them down. Good thing my son is 19 and can feed himself. This book was awesome from the start. The action starts right away and I felt like Scott was talking directly to me. I love that characters from other books are being used in this series. The story line flows perfectly and I couldn't wait to see what happens next. I like that the end is not drawn out. I always feel like I know the characters and I am right there watching the plot unfold. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

I purchased the paperback book when it first came out. I enjoyed it and eagerly looked forward to the next books in the series to be released. I've read around 8 of Ms. Graham's paranormal books so far, and none of them had the characters that appear in Dust to Dust. Even though I wasn't familiar with the characters in this book, I was able to get the gist of their stories, get a feel for them and even a liking for them. That's one reason I want to read the second to fourth books that are supposed to be in this series - I want to learn more about the people involved in this story. The second reason I want the rest of this series is because the plot is interesting - solve a puzzle, beat the clock, save the day. I'll have to read the previous books to find out about the characters of this book. I'm not interested in reading any of the new series Ms. Graham's written until this one is completed.

my boyfriend and i finally found a book we both enjoyed reading. We found it to be very exciting and thrilling, which made it very hard to put down and very easy to read. We were so excited that it was going to be a series, however, the series has turned into a book of one. We were led to believe that there would be four books total, one every year following the first. We are still waiting and its been three years!

The beginning of Dust to Dust is a little slow and it takes a little while to get through it. In the end , it's worth it. Once it finally picks up it remains consistant and proves to be a great novel. The majority of the has one exciting event following another. As everything is occuring there is that sense of mystery and a touch of romance. So even when the story is uneventful the characters in the book are trying to figure everything out. Plus, a romance gradually blooms as the stories plot continues. All in all, once you get past the beginning, Dust to Dust is a good rainy day read.
