Publisher's Summary

In Frankenstein: Lost Souls, Dean Koontz puts a singular twist on this classic tale of ambition and science gone wrong, to forge a new legend uniquely suited to our times. It is a story of revenge, redemption, and the thin line that separates human from inhuman.

The work of creation has begun again. Victor Leben, once Frankenstein, has seen the future — and he’s ready to populate it. Using stem cells, “organic” silicon circuitry, and nanotechnology, he will engender a race of superhumans — the perfect melding of flesh and machine. With a powerful, enigmatic backer and a secret location where the enemies of progress can’t find him, Victor is certain that this time nothing can stop him.

It is up to five people to prove him wrong. In their hands rests nothing less than the survival of humanity itself. They are drawn together in different ways, by omens sinister and wondrous, to the same shattering conclusion: Two years after they saw him die, the man they knew as Victor Helios lives on. As they gather at a small Montana town, old alliances will be renewed and tested, from within and without, for the dangers they face will eclipse any they have yet encountered. Yet in the midst of their peril, love will blossom, and joy, and they will discover sources of strength and perseverance they have not imagined.

They will need them, for a monumental battle is about to commence that will require all their ingenuity and courage, as it defines what we are to be...and if we are to be at all.

    "and where is the rest of the book"

    I hope that Koontz was not behind the decision to end this book at this point in the story. I feel cheated.

    "Great addition to the series"

    After reading the reviews I was prepared for this to be half a book as many suggested. It was. But the ending of this half was well executed (great ending). Being forewarned takes the sting out of it. If you’re a fan of the series you have to get it. Not expecting much I found it highly enjoyable. Great narration and a few fun new characters!

    "Humor Unepected"

    I read Dean Koontz novels because they are well written and educational. He keeps the reader in suspense, while he drops pearls of wisdom about many of life's conflicts.The vocabulary used in all Mr. Koontz's novels is unparalleled. The dialog in this novel was very funny, as in many of his other stories. Who would expect novels in this category to be funny, and even sometimes romantic. I love reading Dean Koontz's books.

    "Can you say "Money Grab!!!""

    People are correct, it just ends without warning right in the middle of the action. A complete money grab!

    Other than the fact its 1/2 a book, it was still good, so I gave it 4 stars. The 5th books should be free if you purchased the 4th one!

    "Not complete"

    This may be an excellent book when it is finished. As it is the book builds to a climax and ends without resolving anything. Wait for the sequel to come out.

    "VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING"

    Very very disappointing. I played back the last chapter to make sure I hadn't missed the rest of the book. I then went on line figured didn’t down load the second part. I really feel it was a very bad place to leave the reader. I wish I had not bought the book and waited till the series was complete. It will make me think twice buying or getting involved in a Dean Koontz series.

    "Where's the other half?"

    So here we go again into the Dean Koontz's reworking of the Frankenstein tale, which freely mixes techno-horror with buddy cop movie antics, Of Mice and Men pathos, and some blessed moments of simple slapstick to brighten the mood. All well and good, although the characters progress only slightly from the last installment, and there's definitely a sense of deja vu about the whole enterprise.

    But then, just as the evil Frankenstein's horrific plans get going and everything starts falling to pieces... the book abruptly ends. Full stop. It's as if Koontz's publisher simply lost the pages belonging to the final third of the book and decided to publish it anyway. More than mere cliffhanger, this one manages to simply be half a book.

    We've seen rushed endings from Koontz before (Breathless), but this one makes no attempt to conclude either storylines or character arcs, or indeed even provide a logical place to pause the action.

    Giving it an "I" for Incomplete.

    "Just Awful"

    This is where i stop listening to anymore books in this series. It seems that the author is only thinking about selling more books. The story was WEAK and the way it ended was just plain annoying!

    "It looks like it could be a great book...BUT"

    I was really enjoying this tale by Mr. Koontz when I noticed I was running out of listening time - I thought that the suspense would build up and leave us with a cliff hanger but that didn't happen. It looks as though someone closed their eyes and stuck a finger about midway through a complete manuscript and said "There, we'll make two books out of one!". Very disappointing and a bit unfair to the readers. Will I get the second half when it comes out? Probably, as I enjoy the series and this "first half" shows promise but I'll listen to it with a somewhat bitter taste in my mouth.
