When the team is sent back to the stormy Oregon coast to investigate a haunted school, Perry wants to use the opportunity to reconnect with her family and reintroduce Dex into their lives. Only Perry’s not the only one who’s reaching out – her grandmother Pippa has started appearing to her with disturbing warnings and Perry’s presence at the school has ignited a chilling new wave of supernatural phenomenon. Once used a century ago as a sanatorium to house children dying of tuberculosis, the school’s past residents are slowly coming back to life and with one thing on their mind. They want someone to play with, someone to join them. Forever.
Even when dead, some children get whatever they want.
And they want Perry.
Have you even started this series? NO! How are we even friends? I’ve been in love with the series since Darkhouse, which by the way, is still my favorite of the books. Okay, well maybe Red Fox is…. no Dead Sky Morning is, for sure…. okay I love them all almost equally.
Come Alive was the previous book in this series, and while I did love that book, it was not my favorite. I’m a Perry fangirl. Yep, Perry is my book crush. Don’t get me wrong Dex is great, but Perry is just awesome. Dark, morose, metal head, insecure, strong, brave, loyal. That’s Perry. 😀 And Dex too, but Dex let’s his penis think entirely too much for me.
Ashes to Ashes scared the bejeezus out of me!! I was so bloody excited to be scared again! I know, it’s not normal. But anyway the chill factors are cranked up to 10 from the get go, and then Karina throws it up to 12 by the end. Ghost kids. People. G.H.O.S.T. K.I.D.S. Do you get that? Do you have any idea how freaking scary little kids are? My daughter has this laugh. I need to get it on tape, if you heard it in a dark room you’d piss your pants it’s so bloody creepy. Add on top that these kids are in a sanatorium used to treat TB (thanks Ms. Halle, I’ve had that song stuck in my head for DAYS now!) Nothing good ever happens in a place where people go to die. There is a secret body chute, and and Karina gives us a very different (and much cooler?) red room of pain. Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! There are several starring ghosts and one of them will haunt me for a very long time. I’m telling you little kids, just paint them white, and teach them to speak in creepy voices and you can scare you neighbors time and time again. *shudders* *laughs manically while contemplating doing this to random people* *realizes she is thinking to herself in a review* *stops*
Perry and Dex are united front in this book. They are solid, and that makes me a very, very happy girl. And Rebecca as a third wheel is just so much fun. The three of them have such a great dynamic.
The writing is flawless as always. Karina is a rock star. It makes me happy that she is an incredibly fast writer. It also makes me sad that Dust to Dust the next book is the last in the series. I’m not ready for it to end.
Please, if you read this blog and go pick up this series. It’s full of fun quirky characters, thrills, chills, steamy scenes and laughter. So worth your time and money.
