I think I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could. It wasn't bad but it wrapped up too easily/quickly. ( )

Not a bad series of books, considering it started out as a trilogy. As for the overall storyline, even though it was supposed to end at book number 3, there is enough continuity to keep it going for 5 books. I’m not sure if the original idea of 2 trilogies would have worked. That may have made things just a bit too contrived. I think that the final outcome of the 5 books was just right. Overall recommended reading. ( )

Title: The Dead Town
Series: Frankenstein #5
Author: Dean Koontz
Rating: 2 of 5 Stars
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Pages: 447
Format: Digital Edition

Synopsis:

Everything begins falling apart for Victor Immaculate. His vat grown creations once again transcend their genetic coding and that transcendance is always in the form of breaking. Builders take on non-biological matter and can't reproduce properly, the replacement clones begin to obsess and lose sight of their mission.

Through it all, Michael and Carson begin helping the townsfolk defend themselves while Deucalion hunts Victor down. Deucalion snaps Victor's neck, the creations fall apart upon their creator's death and Deucalion can now walk quantumly through the Light instead of skulking through the Shadows.

My Thoughts:

Even while I was expecting this story to turn out like this, it was still disappointing to have it actually happen. This followed the exact same pattern as the first trilogy but without any finesse or style. Evil simply falls apart and the good guys win by default.

Also, I already wrote this review, forgot to post it online, forgot I hadn't posted it and deleted the hard copy from Open Office. So I'm writing this all over again. That always ruins things.

Basically, I didn't enjoy this book or this series overall. I wouldn't recommend it but I am going to continue dipping my toes into the Koontz universe. I've got 20 of his books available so I'm going to go exploring and see what I find. I hope I find better things than this book.

If anyone has read some of his standalone stuff, feel free to make recommendations in the comments, otherwise I'm just going to start picking stuff randomly.

★★☆☆☆

This book was far more entertaining and action-packed than book four. As before, we had all the familiar characters from previous books and some interesting new ones too.


ADDED FIVE MINUTES LATER: Okay, I'm tired and I got caught writing the review before the very end of the story. I felt compelled to add this so it is understood that I did NOT like the ending. I am tempted to remove a star from my original review (there... it's been done). I have another Koontz book to read but not until after something else as a buffer. ( )
