Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author Dean Koontz, a trilogy of original novellas, “Last Light”, “Final Hour”, and “Troubled Times”, about an extraordinary heroine - Makani Hisoka-O’Brien - a Southern California surfer and clairvoyant.

“Last Light”
Makani is a young woman with a good heart and the gift of touch - a troubling gift, and sometime curse, that separates her from others, from her family, friends, and lovers - a gift that makes her wary of casual contact. For when Makani touches others, their darkest thoughts and secret deeds are revealed to her. But her exile from the world at large comes to an end when she meets a “gifted” man with a talent of his own - a talent guided by a twisted soul. In a war of wills, only one will survive.

“Final Hour”
Makani saves a stranger from an accident in the park and experiences a most disturbing vision. With her friend Pogo, her dog Bob, and mere traces of information to guide her, Makani must track down two mysterious sisters - one of them innocent, one not.

“Troubled Times”
A friend reveals that he is under attack from a man with supernatural talents - a malevolent man with the power to manipulate time. The power was meant for good - to save humanity - but it was usurped by this man of insatiable greed and lust. Makani must use her gift, yet again, not only to save her friend, but the world as well. Has Makani finally met her match? Can her good heart stand up to such evil? Someone’s time is up, and only time will tell whose time that is.

Best audio I have ever listened to

This is the Mr. Koontz I used to read. I felt that somewhere around writing of "Sole Survivor" he lost something for me. I felt his Frankenstein series was shameful. However, here he is redeeming himself. A great trilogy. Amy Landon does a good job of reading. I've listened to other women read the parts of male characters and had to stop it was done so badly. If you liked the "old" Koontz, this is for you.

One of his BEST CHARACTERS YET!

It appears Koontz is leanining towards trilogies these days with an outstanding protagonist in both character & purpose. I love this gal with her "BALDWINESQUE" beauty yet incredible humility. The world could definitely use a lot more of his type IN REAL LIFE! Easy to pick up & put down but gripping enough to draw you in for an all-day read. 👌🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻🙏🏻Please write more like this one!!!

Good Listen.

Nice short story trilogy in one. Good twists and turns throughout. I hope there are more to come.

sweet Oddie it's GREAT

Koontz rocks the sci-fi world with another magical, humble herorine and hero's. Pogo and Bob help make Makani's family complete. I loved this trilogy.

Great story. Can barely tolerate the narration.

Sorry, but Amy's lilt and character voices are the worst. Tempted to just read the book.

Last story jumped the shark

Loved the characters and a solid performance, but the last story in the trilogy completely jumped the shark. Without giving too much away. the main characters do something in the last story that seemed completely out of, well, character. Enjoyed the first two stories and the overall premise, though.

Horrible

All over the place. About time travel? Maybe? Murder mystery? Maybe... what just happened in this book?

Also, the narrator makes all male characters sound like idiotic dunces.

Have read many Koontz- this one definitely not a favorite.

Narrator......Ack....

Ok....I am pretty tolerant, but this narrator really bugged me and almost made me want to stop listening. She had a way of ending her sentences with a weird whispering lilt....Her male voices are even worse.....Kinda like dudly doo more with that same lilt. It's very distracting.

disappointing but perhaps book 2 will be better.

I'm not keen on the short story type approach. perhaps it's a scene setting book for the next 2. I found the plot too predictable to really enjoy.

horrible narration

Koontz is my favourite author but I could not listen to this book for more than five minutes. The narrator sounds like artificial intelligence, but in a bad way. There is not flow, no grammar and near impossible to follow. I'm very disappointed.
I have only rated the story one star because I have not listened to it.
