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. The mystery, the myth, the terror, and the magic continue....

They are stronger, heal better, and think faster than any humans ever created - and they must be destroyed. Not even Victor Helios - once Frankenstein - can stop the engineered killers he's set loose on a reign of terror through modern-day New Orleans. Only the one-time "monster" Deucalion and his all-too-human partners, Detectives Carson O'Connor and Michael Maddison, stand in their way. But as the three race to uncover the true dimensions of an age-old conspiracy, they will discover that Victor's new, improved models have infiltrated every level of the city's society...and far beyond.

I absolutely love this series.

This wonderful Frankenstein series is full of creatures , gore and mayhem. But very often with toungue-in-cheek humor. The humor is very subtle and often found myself smirking from one side of my face. The details of the creatures are awesome and the things they do are not terrifying but certainly electrifying. I highly recommend this series and look forward to the next book. Signed me up audible I’m committed or perhaps I should be .

Maybe Not As Good, But Still Solid

Here's the thing that people need to understand about Dean Koontz, he tends to have a dark writing style. I do enjoy his books, I just feel like some of the other titles tend to cover dark material. With that being said... I will stand by my stance that he is a good writer & "worth his salt". This book definitely covers some interesting topics, situations, subject matter, etc etc. However, if you don't mind a series that has Frankenstein's Monster as a character, two cops who are in love with each other & a evil scientist who is determined to create a perfect albeit controllable race, then this is for you.

Where is the rest of it?

I was surprised as the end abruptly stopped in the middle of what seemed to be just another chapter, left you hanging that is for sure! Eagerly waiting for the rest of it!!

Better than the first! Fast paced. Addicting.

At first hesitant to buy the Frankenstein series, I have been pleasantly surprised with the first two book. I do wish each book was longer, but I feel they are worth the purchase price. What I really like is the subtle humor within such horror. I chuckled out loud a couple of times. The pace of the action within the books is exhilarating. If you are a Dean Koontz fan I would recommend this series. I listened to this volume straight through. I like the plot and am very happy with the narration. I gave this book 5 stars all around and guess I will have to finish he series now that I am hooked. ....Tony G.

far out

well performed, decent story, but sometimes stretched the imagination to the ridiculous. Just a good distraction from reality

better than the 1st book

I enjoyed the suspense, the book kept me interested. sometimes it's a little unnecessarily over detailed with too many parables. the narration made me crazy, the pronunciation was way off and the attempted accent was just bad
