Review: Odd Apocalypse
By Dean Koontz
Genre Adult, Paranormal, Suspense
Recommended by Me
First sentence Near sunset of my second full day as a guest in Roseland, crossing the immense lawn between the main house and the eucalyptus grove, I halted and pivoted, warned by instinct.
After fleeing the small seaside town with Annamaria, Odd finds himself the unwanted guest at Roseland. An estate owned by an eccentric billionaire and inhabited by his loyal and creepy servants. But things aren't what they seem. Things in Odd's life rarely are.
What it has going for it
You have no idea how much I love Odd or how desperately long I waited for this one to come out! I'm ashamed that it took me so long to read. It has nothing to do with the quality of the book, though. Believe me, this one was just as amazing as the rest. Odd was great as his usual amusing, tenderhearted self. The plot was definitely wild this time around. I found myself equally confused and creeped out in a delightful way. I'm dying to see what happens next and what adventures Odd and Annamaira will get to next. I loved the reappearance of a dark room just because it's perfectly creepy and makes me wonder how all the books will eventually tie together. I also love that the new ghost is Alfred Hitchcock. This should be interesting indeed. I just love these books! If you haven't read them you should. They're funny and creepy and suspenseful and moving with a MC who you can't help but love.
Like I said, this one was a bit wild but that's not really a complaint.
I can't say much without being spoilery but I loved the ending and Odd's heart wrenching choice.
Yea or Nay?
Of course. I'll recommend these books to all types of readers till the day I die.
