The Frankenstein story is updated to the 21st century by the great American storyteller Dean Koontz. Now someone new is playing god. Frankenstein lives! And so too does his monstrous creation ...but this creature of legend is a monster no more and his scarred face bears witness to his maker's wrath. His name is Deucalion. As a devastating hurricane approaches New Orleans, Victor Helios, once know as Frankenstein, has unleased his benighted creatures onto the streets. As New Orleans descends into chaos, his engineered killers spin out of control, and the only hope rests with Victor's first and failed attempt to build the perfect human, whose damned path has led him to the ultimate confrontation with his pitiless creator. But first, Deucalion must destroy a monstrosity not even Victor's malignant mind could have imagined - an indestructible entity that steps out of humankind's collective nightmare with one purpose: to replace us. This is a powerful reworking of one of the classic stories of all time.

This series is superb! You can?t beat Michael?s funny and sarcastic humor, Carson?s tough cop attitude, Deucalion?s eternal mysticism, and Victor?s eerie genius. The NOPD homicide detective partners come to accept the fantasy/horror become reality, and continue to save the world from the New Race while on crazy amounts of caffeine and a large amount of pent up sexual tension. Since the catastrophic cellular metamorphosis of Werner, all of the New Race are rapidly dropping lines of programming. Unfortunate for them as they degrade into insanity, they go into a killing frenzy as they try to remedy being dead and alive.
This book is super fast-paced, full of high energy, and ultimately brilliant. The Resurrector reminds me a bit of the creature at the end of Stephen King?s It, in a way, not Pennywise but the monster. The lab created Chameleon is a creepy and scary predator that you run away from screaming and root for too. And Jocko is ugly, weird, hilarious, and perfectly coupled with Erika Five.
With the satisfying closure delivered in book three, what kind of spectacular and horrific adventures can book four, Lost Souls give us? I?m curious to find out soon.

not as good as the previous frinkenstein books but still worth the read.

I bought this book with great hopes that it would be a fitting end to the Frankenstein trilogy. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I felt as if the book didn't fit well with the other two, and the story was all over the place. I also get really tired of Koontz putting dogs in all of his books. I really like dogs, but every story I read doesn't necessarily need to contain dogs.
