Ashes to Ashes by John Saul Review

Blackstone Chronicles Part Three
Ashes to Ashes: The Dragon’s Flame
By John Saul

Part three delves more into Rebecca Morrison’s life, we’ve met he in the previous books as “poor Rebecca” the woman whose parents died in a car accident when she was a teenager where she suffer severe head trauma leaving her in almost the same mental state as when she was a teenager.  Rebecca then ends up being the ward of her religious fanatic aunt Martha, who drove away her own husband and child years prior.  Unlike the other books where a “cursed” object is left at someone’s home in this book Rebecca buys it as a welcome home present for her cousin Andrea who has finally come back to Blackstone after having nowhere else to go.  I found this book focuses more on the main story line that ties the books together, which is not bad but left this part lacking in intensity though this is the first book to blatantly explain the connection between the memento and victim. All in all I really hope the books get better otherwise I have wasted my time for nothing.
