NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERLoop me in, odd one. The words, spoken in the deep of night by a sleeping child, chill the young man watching over her. For this was a favorite phrase of Stormy Llewellyn, his lost love. In the haunted halls of the isolated monastery where he had sought peace, Odd Thomas is stalking spirits of an infinitely darker nature. As he steadfastly journeys toward his mysterious destiny, Odd Thomas has established himself as one of the most beloved and unique fictional heroes of our time. Now, wielding all the power and magic of a master storyteller at the pinnacle of his craft, Dean Koontz follows Odd into a singular new world where he hopes to make a fresh beginning--but where he will meet an adversary as old and inexorable as time itself.
About the Author
Praise For Brother Odd…
“Supernatural thrills with a side of laughs.”—The Denver Post
“Thrilling . . . heart-stopping . . . Terrific characterization and patient plotting mark Koontz’s work, and this novel about the triumph of modesty over hubris proves exemplary on both counts. A work both exciting and engaging—and with its heart in the right place.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Poignant but quick-moving . . . Koontz deftly mixes [in] humor . . . as he tackles the big questions: Can humans prove that God exists? And why is Elvis scared to go to Heaven?”—People (four stars)
“Koontz gives his character wit, good humor, a familiarity with the dark side of humanity—and moral outrage.”—USA Today
