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. Here is the mystery, the myth, the terror, and the magic of…

DEAN KOONTZ’S CITY OF NIGHT

They are stronger, heal better, and think faster than any humans ever created–and they must be destroyed. But 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. Now the only hope rests in a one-time “monster” and his all-too-human partners, Detectives Carson O’Connor and Michael Maddison. Deucalion’s centuries-old history began as Victor’s first and failed attempt to build the perfect human–and it is fated to end in the ultimate confrontation between a damned creature and his mad creator. But first Deucalion must destroy a monstrosity not even Victor’s malignant mind could have imagined–an indestructible entity that steps out of humankind’s collective nightmare with one purpose: to replace us.

Quotes & Awards

  • Of all bestselling authors, Koontz may be the most underestimated by the literary establishment. Book after book, year after year, this author climbs to the top of the charts. Why? His readers know: because he is a master storyteller and a daring writer, and because, in his novels, he gives readers bright hope in a dark world. Publishers Weekly,starred review

    " I figured that Koontz would be able to wrap everything up in this book, but my God, I couldn't have been more wrong. I loved it just as much as the first. I am on pins and needles waiting for his third installment of this series to come out in May!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 1/3/2014

    " Not as good as the first but the story is compelling though it has been some time since I read book 1. I like the jumping from multiple characters perspectives that occurs throughout the book. I also like the way he makes you understand each characater and where they are coming from. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nate | 1/3/2014

    " I did not finish this book, in fact I didn't get past the first hundred pages. I guess, in my old age, that serial killers who sever body parts is just not how I want to spend my reading time...unless it is a true story. Is that sick? "
