Book Description

When Kate left Chelsea twenty five years before, she thought she’d left the city behind her forever. A promise to her childhood friend, Bo, brings her back to the city of her birth and reunites her with friends from her long-ago past -- and a horror she thought she'd escaped. Kate quickly finds that the games they played as children have come back to terrorize them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, you won't see this coming! March 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Unknown author, first book -- and wow, close to a masterpiece. How splendid to have literary-quality writing and heart-in-the-throat fear factor. It won't be long until this author is on a bestseller list. Until then, grab this bargain and enjoy the ride.

You might want to keep the lights on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Best Book I've Read in Years! May 20, 2013
By Kristin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved basically every single thing about this book. The characters were so believable and the more you "got to know them", the more likeable they became. The plot was tight and I couldn't put this book down. I saw where another reviewer didn't like the switching back and forth between when the friends were in the present and when they were children. I actually loved this part of the book. This is where you learned the backstory and formed the friendships and got to really know your characters! My favorite Stephen King novel (It) did the exact same thing. And speaking of S.K., if you like scary, this book is for you! There is a little bit of blood and guts but it wasn't overdone at all. Trust me, I love scary but not gore so much. I am anxiously awaiting another book by the author. Hurry please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put this book down! September 22, 2013
By JD
Format:Paperback
Even though I was nervous about what would come next, I couldn't put this book down! I read the book in two days, despite the list of other things that needed to get done. Sons of Dust captured my attention, drew me in, had me caring about the characters, and on the edge of my seat with what would come next. The story isn't predictable and is very well written. I'm looking forward to reading the author's next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars enthralling September 9, 2013
By kristi
Format:Kindle Edition
Great story, very engrossing. It pulled me in from the beginning and held my interest throughout. I can see them making a movie from this book! The one thing that took away from the story was the editing. Throughout the book, there were words left out of sentences that were quite obviously supposed to be there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense reading - Great characters. September 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great writing! This book is a page-turner! It held my attention from beginning to end. The characters are so alive you can see them. I liked the way the story gave us present and past flashbacks of the group of friends growing up together. I want more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense and Enjoyable Read September 17, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have to admit this genre is a little outside of my regular read but picked this up on advice of a friend. I'm glad I did and loved it. It took a little while to settle into the style but after a few chapters I was hooked. I kept visualizing the movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars EXCITING! April 27, 2013
By Mary Jo
Format:Kindle Edition
This book had a lot of action in it and was a quick read. The author's physical descriptions of scenery , etc were not so that I could visuallize them easily in my mind. This book also needs to be proofread for there are far too many spelling and word errors in it. For example, when Marcus tried to open his car door to escape Lucien he could not turn the "doorknob" instead of open the "door handle". All of these errors are distracting and could have been easily corrected.
