Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Best Thriller/Suspense Category, 2013
Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria.
In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.
A harrowing taste of Roseland’s terrors convinces Odd that it’s time to hit the road again. Still, the prescient Annamaria insists that they’ve been led there for a reason. Just how deep and dreadful are the mysteries Roseland and her masters have kept for nearly a century? And what consequences await whoever is brave, or mad, enough to confront the most profound breed of evil? Odd only knows. Like his acclaimed creator, the irresistible Odd Thomas is in top-notch form - as he takes on what may well be the most terrifying challenge yet in his curious career.

Odd Apocalypse; Oddly Great

The Odd series, (pun intended) is a departure from writer, Dean Koontz, normal suspense thrillers and shows off more of his humor and wit, while exploring the dark side of humanity, in these supernatural horror stories.
Odd Apocalypse is book five in a seven part series but I believe can be read and enjoyed without having read the previous books. For those who have read the other books, Odd Thomas, the familiar humble fry cook with his strange ability to see the dead, is back.
I thought this latest rendition in the series, which goes a little darker than the previous books, is better than ???Odd Hours,??? which reached number one on the New York Times best sellers list.
The narrator, David Aaron Baker, gives another stellar performance.
I am definitely an Odd fan, (no pun intended).

Such a Surprise...... Odd Thomas now a Bore?

What a disappointment! I truly love this author, having read and loved so many of his books over the past decade. This Odd Thomas book 5 leaves the reader/listener feeling kinda empty and disengaged. The story takes place in a creepy estate somewhere filled with confusing bad guy characters and disgusting mucus snorting pig creatures that like to eat anyone and anything.
Odd arrives (exactly why we aren't sure because there is little to no character and/or story development) with a wise and enigmatic pregnant woman who we are lead to believe will be central to the plot, is glaringly absent throughout most the book.
And darling Odd, the beloved main character is mostly shallow and one demnensional here, sad to report.
I wish Mr. Koontz woudl reemerge and give us the kind of books we have come to expect. I await another and hopefully better next book from you Mr. Koontz.
