Publisher Description

A heart-stopping supernatural thriller from the master of suspense. Addison Goodheart is not like other people ... Addison Goodheart lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from a society which will destroy him if he is ever seen. Books are his refuge and his escape: he embraces the riches they have to offer. By night he leaves his hidden chambers and, through a network of storm drains and service tunnels, makes his way into the central library. And that is where he meets Gwyneth, who, like Addison, also hides her true appearance and struggles to trust anyone.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. 'A thriller that's both chilling and fulfilling' PEOPLE 'Laced with fantastical mysticism, it's an allegory of nonviolence, acceptance and love in the face of adversity ... the narrative is intense, with an old-fashioned ominousness and artistically crafted ... with an optimistic and unexpected conclusion ... Something different this way comes from Mr. Koontz's imagination. Enjoy.' KIRKUS REVIEWS 'Fascinating thriller' WOMAN'S DAY 'Monstrously thrilling' COURIER MAIL 'A supernatural tragedy ... a fantastical tale of loneliness and love, a story about our endless capacity to do good and succumb to evil' Rob Minshull, ABC

Rhonda C🇦🇺 ,


Dean's characters are all full of so much humanity and kindness ( lacking in our world today)!
The slightly "flawed" characters,be they Addison,Odd Thomas or Jane Hawk are so rich and believable ,they immerse you in a story of magic and hope,that helps you believe humanity does exist,even when it's easy to doubt it!
I love all these books,thankyou.
