Odd Thomas short story

I finished reading You are Destined to be Together Forever by Dean Koontz. It is a short story of Odd Thomas. I count this as the seventh book of the book series.

Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

This short story is about when Odd was sixteen and he went to the carnival with Stormy. Before they went to the carnival, they ran into a ghost who had a meat cleaver in his neck. Odd decided to follow the guy to help him get justice and get him to cross over. Although the man needed to be killed because he abused women.  The ghost got mad at Odd for not hurting his killer. After escaping the house, Odd and Stormy went to the carnival where they got the fortune teller card saying they are destined to be together forever.

I did like this short story. Now I’m reading Saint Odd by Dean Koontz. It is the last book of the Odd Thomas book series.

Deeply Odd

I finished reading Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz. It is the sixth book of the Odd Thomas. There are eight books in the book series.

Warning: there is some violence and a hint of violence.

Before I begin, this book is a little weird. Like Odd Apocalypse, it may make your head hurt if you think about it too much.

In this book, Odd, Annamaria, and Tim get a cottage near the ocean. Odd wanted to go out to get some new socks. While he was out, he noticed a big truck. He sensed an evil presence with that truck. He met the driver and shared a vision with him of the driver killing kids. Odd goes after him to stop him.  On the way, he meets an elderly woman who helps him with getting him supplies for the mission.  The kids end up becoming safe.

Odd Apocalypse

I finished reading Odd Apocalypse by Dean Koontz. It is the fifth book of the Odd Thomas book series. There are eight books in the book series.

Warning: there is some violence, hints of violence, one sad part, and some gross parts. Like I said earlier, I’m glad ebooks aren’t smell ready.

Before I begin, I should say this book will give you a headache if you think about it too much. It is very strange. It is very odd (yes, a pun).

In this book, Odd and Annamaria are invited to stay at Roseland. It is a huge estate “formerly”  (air quotes because of what is revealed later in the book. I’m not going to reveal it.) owned by a billionaire named Constantine. Odd has a dream about being a Jew that is afraid to die twice. Odd also sees a ghost of a woman riding a black horse. Annamaria tells Odd that he is there because someone is in danger and he can save that person. So he asks the ghost who is in danger. The ghost “says” (the dead can’t talk to Odd) her son needs saving. Odd thinks this is strange because he hasn’t seen a kid on the grounds. He later does find the kid.  The kid though is being monitored so saving him could be difficult. Odd does his best to save him though.

I really liked this book. Now I’m reading Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz. It is the sixth book of the Odd Thomas book series.

ODD INTERLUDE

I finished reading Odd Interlude by Dean Koontz. It is a short book with three parts. It is the fourth book of the Odd Thomas book series.  There are nine books in the book series.

Warning: there is some violence and some really gross parts. I’m glad ebooks aren’t smell ready.

In this book, Annamaria and Odd Thomas take a little detour to Harmony Corner. It’s a small town. Harmony is a family name. There is a diner, rental cottages, and six houses in the town. Annamaria and Odd get a rental cottage. Odd watches a nature show and has a nightmare about a panther. No panthers in the town, but something more terrible. The Harmony family is possessed by a man who controls them by their mind. Odd is immune to the man. Odd learns later that the man was a scientist working for a government agency. They found a UFO and alien bodies. The scientist had injected the dna of one of those alien bodies. That is how he can control the family. Odd promises to free them.

Even though I don’t like alien stuff, I sorta liked this book. Now I’m reading Odd Apocalypse by Dean Koontz. It is the fifth book of the Odd Thomas book series.

Maximum Ride Forever

I finished listening to Maximum Ride Forever by James Patterson. It is the last book of the Maximum Ride book series.  There are nine books in the series.

Warning: there are several sorta sad parts and one sad part.  Warning 2: there is some violence.

In this book, Max and the bird kids discover they need to leave the Island. Dylan went out to get the water jugs but never came back.  They thought he was dead.  They found one of his shoes. Angel kept saying they need to go to Russia, but Max was too stubborn. She wanted to go back to the Island to find her mother and half-sister. Angel showed Fang what will happen to him. Fang went to CA to find info. Iggy and the Gasman went to find a blogger in the west. Max and Nudge went back to the Island. Max learns her mother and half-sister is dead.  Then most of the flock were “killed” by a “horseman.” Later on, Fang finds Dylan alive, but Fang dies.  They all learn who is behind the destruction of the world and the attacks of the flock.

I sorta liked this book. It did have a great ending though. Now I’m reading Odd Interlude by Dean Koontz. It is the fifth book of the Odd Thomas book series.

Odd Hours

I finished reading Odd Hours by Dean Koontz. It is the fourth book of the Odd Thomas book series. There are nine books in the series. Big Warning: there is some violence. This book was slow at first, but it got very interesting later on. I understood later on why this book is called Odd Hours. In this book, Odd is drawn to a beach town called Magic Beach. He has a weird and troubling dream about a red tide and a woman he calls Lady Bell. He later learns her name is Annamaria. He promises her that he will protect her. She is supposedly pregnant. She knows his name and who he is. But she won’t tell him much about herself. When he takes her to another woman’s house for a safe hideout, there was talk of time travel. (I think she is a time traveler.) He tries to stop some guys from blowing up cities with bombs.

I liked this book. I hope she appears later in the series to explain who she is. Now I’m going to listen to Maximum Ride Forever by James Patterson. It is the last book of the Maximum Ride book series.

Supposedly Fang’s DNA  held the secret to immortality Then Dylan went crazy and decided to kill Fang. Max stopped him. Max’s mother came and she explained that she was brainwashed like everyone else. She takes the bird kids to an island. Max’s mother tells them that the toxic gas had been released. For the bird kids to be safe, there were caves that led to underground. Then Dylan came to the island to say there was a fireball headed their way and for all of them to get to the caves. Max and Fang don’t listen to him or Angel. They end up surviving the fireball, but there was a huge tidal wave headed for them. Max thought she had died. But Dylan saved her. The earth is new again.
