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.

lost souls

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


Not great

by BostonPete on Dec 17, 2009

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.
