Today we’d like to talk about Odd Apocalypse: An Odd Thomas Novel by Dean Koontz.
Odd Thomas is back and better than ever!
Dean Koontz’s most beloved character returns to confront deadly adversaries in a decaying estate straight out of Sunset Boulevard. Odd Apocalypse chronicles Odd Thomas’s most riveting adventure to date, as his mysterious journey of suspense and discovery moves to a dangerous new level. This year also will see the release of the much-buzzed Odd Thomas major motion picture.

Acclaim for Dean Koontz and His Odd Thomas Novels:
“An inventive…mix of suspense, whimsy and uplift. It’s refreshing to come across a character as good-hearted as Odd.”-The Washington Post
“If Stephen King is the Rolling Stones of novels, Koontz is the Beatles.”-Playboy
“Koontz is a master of melding the supernatural with the commonplace. [His] writing [crackles] with dry, tongue-in-cheek wit.”-The Boston Globe
“Heartfelt and provocative…a wonderfully rich and entertaining story.”-Chicago Sun-Times
“Koontz gives his character wit, good humor, a familiarity with the dark side of humanity-and moral outrage.”-USA Today
