From Publishers Weekly
In this fast-paced third installment of his Frankenstein series, Koontz continues, without necessarily concluding, his modern-day reimagining of Mary Shelley's horror classic. Leaving his co-authors behind, Koontz makes the most of previous developments, which set the stage for an epic showdown in storm-soaked New Orleans between Victor Helios and the high-tech, artificial beings he created to destroy the human race. Many members of the unhappy, soulless "new race," created by Helios to kill his enemies, have turned their hatred back on their master. Deucalion, a centuries-old giant who was the madman's first, flawed human creation, leads an uprising of creatures that includes a naked troll and a slithering chameleon. Though big developments await fans, Koontz hints that he may not be done with this violent monster tale, a project that has taken him deep into sci-fi territory. Witty characters provide relief from the story's dark undercurrent, though Koontz knows, perhaps better than ever, how to scare his readers without resorting to gory details.

“A rarity among bestselling writers, Koontz continues to pursue new ways of telling stories, never content with repeating himself. He writes of hope and love in the midst of evil in profoundly inspiring and moving ways.”—Chicago Sun-Times

I found myself occasionally laughing out loud once in a while, when's the last time you laughed when you read a Dean Koontz book (unless you are seriously deranged)
Buy all five and settle in, turn off the TV, and get ready for a roller coaster ride that only a master story teller can lay on you. cause if you only buy one at a time, you are going to have to wait to find out what the hell else could possibly happen.
Do it, do it now.
My partner at work and i share books.
I finished Book one, and gave it to her. She reads faster than i do, she's looking at me two days later, sayin "you done with book two yet, next day are you done yet.
I'm not a slow reader by any means but, I bought her the series for her birthday, before she exploded.
The way that Dean Koontz has built his characters are like none I have ever seen. All of his characters contradict themselves. Randall Six craves the outside world but doesn’t want to go out into the world for fear. Deucalion is a monster and is made from the worst kind of humans but yet strives to not be that. Victor is a human but views himself as godly and better than everyone. Koontz has awakened a classic in a modern day society in the slums of New Orleans. I have never read an author that is capable of scaring the crap out of you in one chapter and making you laugh uncontrollably the next. I would highly recommend this to any mature mind out there. Warning it make keep you up all night.
