This is the third in the Odd Thomas series and Dean Koontz does not disappoint. Odd takes up residence with a religious order and the Ghosts and Goblins are not far behind. Told as only Koontz can Brother Odd is one of those books you don't want to put down!

This WILL Scare You!
Leave it to Koontz to come up with original, scarey monsters and bad guys. I am a horror genre aficionado. Therefore I am pretty jaded and immune to most monsters and bad guys., This book scared me It gave me nightmares. It did tdid take several chapters before they showed up ( I don't want to give anything away) but when they did I was way spooked. Get the book, you will not be sorry, you will be scared. sleepless. A word to the wise...'bodachs' are real. Accordting to some paranormal and supernatural chat rooms they are called shadow people and you DON"T want to run into one of them.remember if you Do don;t talk about them where they can hear you! Thankfully I havn't run accross any references to boneyards or any other of Koontz's nightmare creatures.Thats not to say they arn't out there. ENJOY!

Don't miss this book!
I thought it would be hard for Mr. Koontz to get any better with the Odd Thomas books, but he did. This one is even better then the first two and they were excellent.

Koontz knocks another "Odd-ball" out of the park
Brother Odd is a great addition to the Odd Thomas series, giving us another can't-put-it-down gift. Once again we learn more about Oddie and his attempt to get away from himself, which is of course, futile, even in a remote monastery. Talk about leaving your comfort zone! Koontz paints more lively word portraits, this time of the resident monks (both living and dead), nuns (tattoos and all) and disabled children (are they channellign Stormy??) One would think that a monastery would be one place without mysteries, but we learn it isn't so, especially with brothers who are former mob hitmen ("Brother Knuckles") and physicists.. Does Oddie bring trouble or does he follow trouble? In any case, Odd Thomas finds himself in the midst of more mystery, suspense, and danger. The worst thing about the Odd Thomas books is, they always leave you wanting more. Odd Thomas is the best character Deant Koontz has invented. May there be many more.
