The cataclysmic conclusion to Koontz?s brilliant reworking of the classic tale.
The war against humanity is raging. As the small town of Rainbow Falls, Montana, comes under siege, scattered survivors come together to weather the onslaught.
Victor Frankenstein?s nihilistic plan is to remake the future: a future in which mankind will be annihilated. To accomplish this aim he has created nothing less than the shock troops of the Apocalypse.
Now the alliance of the good must make their last, best stand and do battle against overwhelming odds. And Deucalion, Frankenstein's original and flawed attempt at replicating life, must finally confront his evil creator. In a climax that will shatter every expectation, the fate of humanity hangs in the balance?
'A modern Swift ? a master satirist.' Entertainment Weekly
'If Stephen King is the Rolling Stones of novels, Koontz is the Beatles.' Playboy
'Dean Koontz writes page-turners, middle-of-the-night sneak-up-behind-you suspense thrillers. He touches our hearts and tingles our spines.' Washington Post Book World
'Tumbling, hallucinogenic prose. Serious writers might do well to study his technique.' New York Times Book Review
'Fast-paced and dark ? Koontz knows we live in a world where evil delights in justifying itself ? Classic literature that deserves a place on the bookshelf beside Orwell's 1984 and Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451.' California Literary Review
'Koontz is writing right where popular culture swells into something larger, just as it did for Homer, Shakespeare, and Dickens. He's got the gift.' Australian
'Koontz is a superb plotter and wordsmith. He chronicles the hopes and fears of our time in broad strokes and fine detail, using popular fiction to explore the human condition.' USA Today
'Inspires both chills and serious thought ? has the power to scare the daylights out of us.' People
'The poet laureate of paranoid pop fiction.' Denver Post
'Koontz achieves a literary miracle ? stunning physical description, unique turns of phrase.' Boston Globe
