The Night Window by Dean Koontz
The Night Window - Dean Koontz

Wow!  An amazing, twisted read. Loved this last Jane Hawk novel. The web of deceit spins out across the country, including congress, alphabet agency’s and down. The conclusion is not an easy one and leaves us with a few of the “bad” guys still in circulation. This is a fast paced story, keeping the reader on edge until the very end. An excellent read, do not miss this one.

Book synopsis
1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz brings Jane Hawk's one-woman war to an explosive climax as the rogue FBI agent wages her final battle against a terrifying conspiracy--for vengeance, for justice, and for humanity's freedom.

"Jane Hawk is arguably the best character Koontz has created. Simply put, wow."--Associated Press

Groundbreaking, wholly involving, eerily prescient and terrifyingly topical, Dean Koontz's Jane Hawk series sets a new standard for contemporary thrillers. Since her sensational debut in The Silent Corner, readers have been riveted by Jane Hawk's resolute quest to take down the influential architects of an accelerating operation to control every level of society via an army of mind-altered citizens. At first, only Jane stood against the "Arcadian" conspirators, but slowly others have emerged to stand with her, even as there are troubling signs that the "adjusted" people are beginning to spin viciously out of control. Now, in the thrilling, climactic showdown that will decide America's future, Jane will require all her resources--and more--as she confronts those at the malevolent, impregnable center of power.

My thoughts :
rating: 5 stars all the way 
Would I re read this series : a big yes
Its one of my all time series by him
Would I recommended this series : a big yes
Is this a series you have to read in order : yes 
What would I tell someone who only read the first book: Don't give up on it , the series keeps getting better with each book 

While this is the finial book to the series its the best one out of all of them and I've read and reviewed the hole series since it came out, it does tell you more of a back story about who and what is going on, and you see more of them in action and trying to stop Jane from stopping them and letting the truth be know, you also get to meet new characters that will become favorite ones as well. This series is well written and has non stop action though out it, and it has never let me down ,ever. It pulls you in to the story and won't let go, its also not for the faint of heart and I do have to put out there a trigger warning for those that sensitive , but over all the series is still a great one to read. As your reading it you find out more about Jane and her past as well, and like I said this a stunning conclusion of the Jane Hawk books and you have to read it! , If you love his books then series is a must read. With that said I want to thank Netgalley and the publishers for letting read and review it ,in a change for my honest opinion ,also this was my must anticipated read for 2019 .

One Sentence Review – The City by Dean Koontz @deankoontz
The City - Dean Koontz

 

 

I have been a huge fan of Dean Koontz for years, so when I saw this for review, I had to grab it. Then…I wished I hadn’t.

 

Thanks to Net Galley and Bantam.

 

The City (The City, #1)

Amazon  /  Audiobook  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Well, what can I say…I never even read the blurb because…it’s Dean Koontz…and I was so disappointed to be denied my dose of horror that I was expecting, though I did finish it and gave it a 2 star rating for that reason, I could never get past my expectations and I know I will be reading blurbs from here on out.

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The City by Dean Koontz.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos 2 Stars

 

GOODREADS BLURB

 

The city changed my life and showed me that the world is deeply mysterious. I need to tell you about her and some terrible things and wonderful things and amazing things that happened . . . and how I am still haunted by them. Including one night when I died and woke and lived again.

 

Here is the riveting, soul-stirring story of Jonah Kirk, son of an exceptional singer, grandson of a formidable “piano man,” a musical prodigy beginning to explore his own gifts when he crosses a group of extremely dangerous people, with shattering consequences. Set in a more innocent time not so long ago, The City encompasses a lifetime but unfolds over three extraordinary, heart-racing years of tribulation and triumph, in which Jonah first grasps the electrifying power of music and art, of enduring friendship, of everyday heroes.

 

The unforgettable saga of a young man coming of age within a remarkable family, and a shimmering portrait of the world that shaped him, The City is a novel that speaks to everyone, a dazzling realization of the evergreen dreams we all share. Brilliantly illumined by magic dark and light, it’s a place where enchantment and malice entwine, courage and honor are found in the most unexpected quarters, and the way forward lies buried deep inside the heart.

Review: Odd Thomas
Odd Thomas - Dean Koontz

Let me preface my review by saying that I saw the movie a few years ago and enjoyed it very much, so I fully expected to enjoy the book.  And I did.  However, I couldn't stop picturing Anton Yelchin as Odd and it made me very sad.  That being said, the movie was a pretty fair representation of the book.  Minus the parts with Odd's insanely bad parents.  OMG they were terrible, horrible people!

 

The story is told by the protagonist, Odd Thomas, who can see the dead...and other otherworldly things.  He lives a life of simplicity as a fry cook in a small town and wants nothing more than to settle down with his soul mate, Stormy and maybe get a job selling tires...eventually.  He does his best to help the dead settle whatever business they still have on this plane so that they can finally cross over to the next.

 

But that all changes the day the Fungus Man comes into the diner where Odd works. This man is  the precursor to the tragedy about to hit Odd's town.  Odd is then in a race to figure out what horrible thing is about to happen in his town, learn what the Fungus Man has to do with it all, and keep as many people safe as possible.

 

Having enjoyed the movie so much, I kind of expected the book to blow me out of the water.  It did not.  It was good, very good even, but not great.  The story was very sad really.  Learning the way Odd and Stormy grew up, the burden of his "gift", the ending.  I'm a little hesitant to continue with the series, but really, I need to find out what happens to Odd next.

 

Even though it didn't knock my socks off, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who's into the supernatural.
