DUST TO DUST
Graham's skill as a storyteller
has never been more apparent. Combining action with richly detailed characters, she sets the stage for a four-book series that promises to
be epic. The first one is atmospheric, compelling and impossible to adequately summarize.
The visions are shared by dog trainer Melanie Regan, who's not an artist but is somehow able to draw disasters, in incredible detail, just before they occur. The two meet under extraordinary circumstances and then go to Rome in search of the mysterious oracle. They join forces with Rainier Montenegro and battle a demon -- the first step in averting the coming apocalypse.
