Dean Koontz's Frankenstein City of Night PDF/EPUB À

Dean Koontz's Frankenstein City of Night Wellthat was interesting If I could I'd give this one a 35 It picks up almost at the instant the first book ends and follows the story the characters It takes a little while to get back to the development at the end of said first book Butoh myit spins us some new threadsMy concern here is that Mr Kontz may spin this one out so that he has too many plot threads He writes good serviceable prose At times he comes across as gifted but his novels for me are a mixed bag Some are among my favorites some i don't care for at all Here I'm still interested but the book seems to be verging on the absurd in a few placesI don't want to give spoilers in the review as this is a good book but I think I can say that the developments in the new species is taking some odd turns These are turns that the creator of said species never expectedThe book also is blatantly a chapter in a continuing story The climaxthe end of the book ties up a plot point while ending almost in a mid chapter feeling This one is a no nonsense no hiding it cliffhanger ending leading into the next bookOkay pretty good I'll go 35 but round up to 4 Enjoy Bring on the next book These are fun WOWGreat BookThe developing story between Ducalion and his maker keep you turning the pageThe New Race has minions fanned out all over the city in very prestigiuos positionsThe Old Race human's seems doomed as many have already died at the hands of Victor Helios's New RaceThe relationship between Micheal and Carson also begins to evolve and one becomes vocal with their feelingsCarson's younger and autistic brother Arnie befriends Ducalion and their relationship is wonderfully written I just LOVE how Ducalion can reach the child and Arnie seems to understand and relate to the giantDean Koontz turns up the knotch on just how EVIL Victor Helios aka Frankenstien can really beAnd what a monster he is His creations are an abomination and most of them are slaves and were created only to serve Victor's every whimHis tank bornlab created wife Erika 5 seems to get the very worst of his punishmentsThe end has totally and completly left me wanting and I hope that Mr Koontz keeps writing about Ducalion loooong after he releases book threeHe said that book three is suppose to be the conclusion the the Frankenstien series but I hope we get much Ducalion in the future A marked improvement over the drivel of the first album marred only by the unfortunate decision to kill off the only character I really liked The change of co authors was a huge help; the style of prose has improved; and while Deucalion and the detectives still feel like unfortunately cliched pastiches the supporting cast Randal Six Cyndi Ben and Erika Five in particular really stands out and any of them could have carried a whole novel on their own I hated the first book so much terrible writing awful characterization etc I wouldn't have read this second novel if I hadn't purchased them both as a package I'm actually glad I did now and I hope the upcoming third book sticks to the second's level of uality 5 audio and story Awesome series actual rating 35I still have many of the same complaints that I had with the first book mainly that despite the interesting idea many of the characters and actual plot elements are very paint by numbers but I think I just finally gave in an allowed myself to enjoy it this time around because for some reason these books are just really enjoyable and easy to read I think it's probably the very short chapters and many character POVs although honestly sometimes there are a bit TOO many POVs for me personally It just makes for a very fast moving plot and never really allows you to become bored with any one thing Although I'm still upset by how little Deucalion is actually in this series overall Maybe it just feels like it because he is my favorite character but it seems like he doesn't get nearly as much page time as the other mains Still hoping his presence is increased in the next book Totally awesome My wife gave me all 5 books in this series to me for Christmas last year and now I am wondering why I took so long to start them Koontz's Frankenstein is so exciting and inventive These books move like the images on a movie screen in your mind There's plenty of action suspense and wicked creatures running around to keep me a prisoner of this terrifying world I do have to add that these books need to be read in order and are not stand alone books From the celebrated imagination of Dean Koontz comes a powerful reworking of one of the classic stories of all time If you think you know the legend you know only half the truth Here is the mystery the myth the terror and the magic ofDEAN KOONTZ’S CITY OF NIGHTThey are stronger heal better and think faster than any humans ever created–and they must be destroyed But not even Victor Helios–once Frankenstein–can stop the engineered killers he’s set loose on a reign of terror through modern day New Orleans Now the only hope rests in a one time “monster” and his all too human partners Detectives Carson O’Connor and Michael Maddison Deucalion’s centuries old history began as Victor’s first and failed attempt to build the perfect human–and it is fated to end in the ultimate confrontation between a damned creature and his mad creator But first Deucalion must destroy a monstrosity not even Victor’s malignant mind could have imagined–an indestructible entity that steps out of humankind’s collective nightmare with one purpose to replace us 35 stars A good seuel to Prodigal Son and I thought the story line improved from the last book Looking forward to the third book in the series when it is released Michael followed the old woman glanced back at Carson and said Come on bitch this'll be fun Dean Koontz's Frankenstein City of Night Chapter 22I am excited to be re reading this series with other Koontzlanders In City of Night we learn the great truth of Snuggle the fabric softener bear Most of the time when he giggled he covered his mouth with one paw I always thought he didn't want you to see his teethSnuggle had bad teeth? She askedI figured they were rows of tiny vicious fangs he was hiding When I was maybe four or five I used to have nightmares where I'd be in bed with a teddy bear and it was Snuggle and he was trying to chew open my jugular and suck the lifeblood out of meI enjoyed the story and the second time around I noticed a character from Twilight Eyes making an appearance In 2005 this was one of my first Dean Koontz books I didn't read Twilight Eyes until 2013 I also noticed some references to Tick Tock and possibly one of those From the Corner of His Eye lines Koontz is always throwing those in his books There is a good amount of humor in City of Night which I noticed on the second and third readings than on the first time aroundMy favorite lines Yes Yes it is them Benny was so pleased that they were alive and that he would still have a chance to kill themAs she had been taught in the tank the universe is nothing but a sea of chaos in which random chance collides with happenstance and spins shatters of meaningless coincidence like shrapnel through our livesYet though in neither of their hearts did they have room for the concept of transcendence though they were forbidden superstition and would laugh at the Old Race's perception of holiness behind nature they knelt among the gone wrongs marveling at their twisted and macabre features tentatively touching their grotesue bodies and unto them came a kind of animal wonder and a chill of mystery and a recognition of the unknownShe answered the door with a cat in a hat She held the cat and the cat wore a hat The cat was black and the hat was a knitted blue beret with a red pompomLiane looked lovely and the cat looked embarrassed and Michael said This explains the mouse we just saw laughing itself to death
