The girl who said no to death.

Bibi Blair is a fierce, funny, dauntless young woman—whose doctor says she has one year to live.

She replies, “We’ll see.”

Her sudden recovery astonishes medical science.

An enigmatic woman convinces Bibi that she escaped death so that she can save someone else. Someone named Ashley Bell.

But save her from what, from whom? And who is Ashley Bell? Where is she?

Bibi’s obsession with finding Ashley sends her on the run from threats both mystical and worldly, including a rich and charismatic cult leader with terrifying ambitions.

As much as I admirer Koontz, I was very disappointed with this book. It was super boring. Horribly written. 😕

LITERAL ADDICTION’s Review of Ashley Bell

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle:

I'm a huge Koontz fan. I've read everything he's ever written and am generally utterly captivated. There was only one book that I was a little disappointed by. This was not one of them.

Koontz consistently delivers strong characters and this book was no exception. Add to that the light and airy quality of the prose and the story pace and I was hooked.

Slightly different from other Koontz works, Ashley Bell is no less enthralling and after a few years, I think this will be one I would pick up again.
