I see quite a few one star ratings here and I understand what has caused this.

Volumes 4 and 5 in this story are really more accurately 4a and 4b. Volume 4 doesn’t have an ending. It just stops in the middle of the action and continues in Volume 5 with the addition of redundant verbiage recapping what just happened in volume 4. I have never read a story that was so clearly spread out to make one volume worth of action stretch into two volumes. If you read them close together, be prepared to do a healthy bit of skimming.

I finished the series because I wanted to see what would happen. Anyone thinking of stopping at Volume 3 really isn’t missing much. I like the main characters and was unimpressed by the supporting cast who I found to be largely unbelievable and in some cases annoying, especially one that reminded me of Jar-Jar Binks.

Better than the last one but mostly a build up to the 5th book. The ending is a cliffhanger. ( )

He really really should've stopped at book 3. I tried and tried to get through this but I couldn't... I know I made it past page 50. Koontz jumped the shark with this book because it went so far off the Frankenstein storyline it's not even funny. So apparently Victor Frankenstein is still alive (I'm okay with that), Deucalion cured the boy's autism (I'm kinda okay with that), Erica and the ugly gnome are living together happily (I'm okay with that). What I'm not okay with is a new set of clones and to get rid of the humans they are cloning, a being rips their heads off and sucks their energy to kill them?!?!? LIke wtf. Nope, not finishing it nor am I going to read Book 5. I'm going to pretend it was a trilogy. That is all.

This is the fourth book of the series and so far the series has held my interest. Books four and five I believe were supposed to be part of a second trilogy instead of this being a five book series. But I guess Koontz wrapped things up early. So far I really don’t see how this could have been prolonged into a sixth book with out things getting too diluted. But I digress. I can’t wait to get started on the last book of the series to see how Koontz brings everything to resolution. ( )

I'm a little embarrassed to be listening to this. There was nothing else in that I wanted and now I'm hooked. ( )

Lost Souls continues the saga of the seemingly unkillable Victor Frankenstein, now a megalomaniac bent on—what else?—world domination, via wiping humanity off the globe, from a few years after where the trilogy Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein left it. Since the blowup (literally: Katrina was raging) in New Orleans in which Victor and his replicant New Race went down for good, Erika Five, the last and most independent version of Frankenstein’s “wife,” has settled outside a Montana town, happily laying low. Then, shopping in town, she sees what could only be Victor. It is, and it isn’t, as she later figures out. Meanwhile, a new bunch of replicants starts replacing their human prototypes and launches a mass termination of the rest of the populace. Fortunately, Deucalion, as Frankenstein’s original creation is now known, is on to the plot. He brings the detective couple from New Orleans, who are now married, new parents, and PIs in San Francisco, into the action, which races to a climax that doesn’t quite conclude in this book. Obviously enjoying himself, Koontz does his dance of grisly suspense, wry dialogue, sharp characterization, outlandish but charming (and well-integrated) comic relief, and cultural criticism more adroitly than almost ever before.

Set in Rainbow Falls, Mont., Koontz's goofy, grisly fourth riff on the Frankenstein theme (after Dead and Alive) finds Victor--previously presumed dead but apparently as easily resurrected as cinematic incarnations of his monster--perfecting his "New Race" of humanoid replicants. As affectless pod-person lookalikes gradually replace the town's citizens, the task of saving humanity from Victor and his megalomaniacal plans to "destroy the soul of the world" fall once again to husband-and-wife detectives Michael and Carson Maddison; Victor's soulsearching original monster, Deucalion; and a host of local yokels who provide both sympathy and comic relief. That the "good guys" are instantly recognizable by their abundant compassion, generosity, and sense of humor and the "bad guys" by their fussbudget fastidiousness and dedication to efficient extermination of inferior humans helps lay the foundation for the humanitarian homilies that punctuate the narrative.
