Publisher's Summary

From the celebrated imagination of Dean Koontz comes a powerful reworking of one of the classic stories of all time. If you think you know the legend, you know only half the truth. Now the mesmerizing saga concludes....

As a devastating hurricane approaches, as the benighted creations of Victor Helios begin to spin out of control, as New Orleans descends into chaos and the future of humanity hangs in the balance, the only hope rests with Victor's first, failed attempt to build the perfect human. Deucalion's centuries-old history began as the original manifestation of a soulless vision - and it is fated to end in the ultimate confrontation between a damned creature and his mad creator. But first they must face a monstrosity not even Victor's malignant mind could have conceived - an indestructible entity that steps out of humankind's collective nightmare with powers, and a purpose, beyond imagining.

Love the action and banter, hate the insects,

I really enjoy Koontz way of writing, very distinct, elegant. But, the only part of his storytelling that I struggle with is his obsession with entomology. He's an excellent storyteller, but I can't for the life of me understand how he manages to incorporate bugs in practically every story. And not just insects, but man morphing into giant, talking insects. I enjoyed the first novel in this series, but by the time I got to the 3rd story, somehow it turned from Victor Frankenstein and creatures turning into insects; bent on destroying mankind. I continued reading despite this, but he lost me completely when one of his creatures morphed into a man sized insect, produced a mouth in his forehead than proceeded to sing "Ava Maria". The story was going along quite well until that moment. All I can say is "stick a fork in me, I'm done!!"
