Southern Dust was unlike anything I have read before. It is a couple short stories that intertwine with one another. It was fun to try and piece together and see how the puzzle fits together. Each new part of the story drew me in. My favorites were the last two stories. Those last bits kept me reading. I felt a connection to the characters and really felt their emotions.
There is some mature content in this book. It does get a bit graphic but not overly so. It leaves plenty to the imagination and you get a good vision in your head of the story that is being told. This book contains something for everyone. There’s a bit of romance thrown in, lots of suspense, supernatural powers and a ton of other stuff that will grab your attention if those don’t. This isn’t a book that I would look at and decide to pick up and read, but honestly I am glad I gave it a shot!
