Dust to Dust Book Cover Dust to Dust
Experiment in Terror
Karina Halle

From Amazon.com:

Perry Palomino and Dex Foray. 

On their own, they’re uniquely brilliant. Together, they’re an unstoppable team. 

Until now. 

Because after everything the duo has encountered, they haven’t come across an evil quite like this. An evil that has been years in the making, an evil that will stop at nothing until they, and everyone they care for, are destroyed. 

Dex and Perry’s love has survived a multitude of sins. 

But can it survive the end? 

Foxy's Review:

It’s LIVE -> http://amzn.to/1oAVcia

As I turned the last page my heart broke knowing this was the end of the Dex & Perry era. I began wallowing in self pity when this quote popped into my head. “Don’t cry because it’s over. SMILE because it happened!” -Dr. Seuss

DUST TO DUST is an epic final book to an overall magnificent series. I love the element of surprise this series offers. The never knowing what was going to scare me next, as I flipped the pages, had me on the edge of my seat. These thoughts kept running through my head: 
♦ Don’t look in any mirrors! Or anything that would show my reflection. *shivers*
♦ Spiders are not our friends but instead they are evil. 
♦ Sleeping with all the lights was necessary while reading this book.

This series finale had little pieces of each of the previous books woven through out it. Since this is my review series finale I decided to use a little something from each of my previous reviews. 

DARK HOUSE
“KC had mentioned to me about wanting to read this series a couple months ago but I was too chicken to take the leap of faith. But after a bad run on romance books lately I knew I had to cleanse my palate. After reading the first couple of pages and seeing my hometown mentioned and my alma mater I knew it was going to be okay!!! Plus there is a lot of humor in this book.”
♦I was so proud of myself for reading this scary book.

RED FOX
“♥I love Dex and Perry!♥
Random side note:
In college I enjoyed reading the Navajo Mysteries series. I knew when I started this one and it had a similar feel that I was going to enjoy Red Fox.”
♦At this point I was hooked and knew I would be reading this whole series.

DEAD SKY MORNING
“To add to the ambiance of this book I read it late at night in bed with my husband sleeping next to me. His hand was rested on my leg and during an intense scene his hand involuntarily squeezed my leg. Let me just say it took everything I had to not scream and jump out of bed.”
♦ Real life stuff happening while reading this series sure made me a jumpy person.

LYING SEASON
“Perry sums up my feelings:
“I quit!”
♦ Oh, that cliffhanger did me in!! I was so frustrated. *lol*

ON DEMON WINGS
“My heart was breaking for Perry as I read this book. She has lost her best friend and partner.”
♦ I was crushed and wondering how Perry was going to rebound from this mess.

INTO THE HOLLOW
“*I had my own 2.0 moment tonight at Best Buy.*
We were shopping and my husband and I split up. When I was done I had gone to look for him and one of the sales guys asked me if he could help me?
I said, “No, I’m just looking for my husband.”
He smirked and said, “We don’t sell those here.”
I laughed.
Then he continued, “But I could get you an upgrade on that husband. One with better features.” 
I replied, “a 2.0 version?” 
He smiled and I kept walking.

When I found my husband I had a huge smirk on my face. He asked me what I had been up to and I told him about the flirty sales guy. 
My husband replied,“Do I need to go pay him a visit?” LOL
My response, “If I decide to trade you in I know I can find a better version at Best Buy…2.0 version.” 
♦ Dex has become Dex 2.0 and his transformation just happened to hit at the same time as this real life moment happened. 

COME ALIVE
“If you love Dex’s pov then you are in for a treat because this whole book you get to live in Dex’s head.”
♦ Self explanatory

ASHES TO ASHES
“When I started ASHES TO ASHES I had no clue it would take place right by where I was taking my teen son to work for the summer. Sunday we drove to a town right outside of Tillamook. As we were driving home I began reading this book and got a little nervous thinking of him being gone all summer and being right where Karina Halle made this story come alive. Being a true teen boy he has yet to call me. Hopefully no creepy kids show up at the camp he’s working at.” 
♦ YES! I love that series has a heroine that lives in Oregon. Another book I get to add to my Oregon shelf.

Dex & Perry
I’m going to steal Dex’s words because he epitomizes how I feel about you two.

“I love you! Always have, always will. Always.”

Thank you, Karina Halle, for having me step out my reading comfort zone and discover this genre. I talk about these characters to others (even my mom) like they are close personal friends. I loved this series and all the emotions I felt as I devoured each and every one of these books. Best wishes to you & your new husband AND Mr & Mrs Foray.
