Author: Dean Koontz
Rating: 5 stars
He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen. She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found. But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance—and nothing less than destiny—has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.
I received this book as a gift and was so happy to immense myself in Dean Koontz’ world. Mr. Koontz writes about people, the issues they have and his books have a dark story to them. But to balance the dark edge his protagonist is pure, not in the sense of cliche, otherworldly, but innocent.
Even though the people who meet him treat him very badly Addison thinks good of them. He is childlike. Compared to him Gwynyth (the girl) is more mature but that doesn’t make Addison seem like a sissy. His love but hesitancy to reveal it, the way he treasures human interaction made me count my blessing and be thankful for my friends. This book searched my soul. Even though the world might be evil and gruesome innocence still lurks between us. I recommend this book to everyone. Though it may have a dark touch and you might feel like it’s not your genre I think you should try it. It also has a happy ending, so cheers 🙂
