Devilish Dust is a horror novel by the multi-award-winning author Erik Dean. Dust storms are pretty common in Arizona and the authorities have told the public what to do if caught in such a storm. The general public is advised to turn off all their lights and to lock their doors but those precautions are advised not to protect people from the dust storm but rather to keep what lurks in the dust at bay. Only a handful of people have seen the horrors and most believe the stories to be nothing more than an old wives’ tale. State trooper Richard Hickman had an unforgettable encounter with the devils of the storm six years ago and he lost a dear friend that day. Now, all those years later Richard finds himself bracing for another dust storm. He's still shaken by what he had witnessed all those years ago but he has to help as many people as he can before the situation turns dire. Will Richard survive the coming storm? Or will the darkness consume him?
Devilish Dust is a good read and it kept me riveted thanks to its fast-paced action and horror. The horror elements in this book were able to consistently scare the hell out of me and that’s why I loved reading this book. It’s difficult to find a book that can get the heart pounding as much as this one and I must say, Erik Dean did a fantastic job at giving me hair-raising chills. Something else that I liked about this book was how each character’s story was interconnected with other characters. I always appreciate this style of writing because it gives me a different perspective of a scene or scenario. The ripple effect that a character’s actions have on other characters’ scenes also makes the whole experience more enjoyable for me. Overall, I had fun reading Devilish Dust and have no problem recommending this book to lovers of the horror genre.
