Reporter Holly Thorne is intrigued by Jim Ironheart, who has saved 12 lives in the past three months. Holly wants to know what kind of power drives him, why terrifying visions of a churning windmill haunt his dreams, and just what he means when he whispers in his sleep that an enemy who will kill everyone is coming.

“A master storyteller, sometimes humorous, sometimes shocking, but always riveting. His characters sparkle with life. And his fast-paced plots are wonderfully fiendish, taking unexpected twists and turns.” —The San Diego Union-Tribune

    " Started out great, but the entire second half just went in the same circle and formed a rut. Disappointing, and I love Koontz. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 1/26/2014

    " One of the few books I've read that actually creeped me out a little. The two main characters point of views blend very well, and the complexity made it seem like three books in one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary Alvey | 1/25/2014

    " Good book and ending finally "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 1/24/2014

    " I love Dean Koontz. Had a hard time getting into ot finishing this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 1/15/2014

    " Aw...my very first Dean Koontz book ever! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aaron | 1/8/2014

    " Being a psychic kid/life-saving here isn't as easy as one might think. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/8/2014

    " not very interesting. my mind kept wandering while reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mercedis | 1/8/2014

    " I loved it! It was very deep and mysterious, with just enough clues that it wasn't mystifying. A beautiful message of hope at the end, no stones left unturned. Another Koontz masterpiece. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd | 12/15/2013

    " Good book. Once they went back to the windmill, you could kind of guess what was actually going on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kjirsten | 11/10/2013

    " Aliens used to block out childhood trauma. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trailblazingjack | 11/1/2013

    " This is a brilliant story. A man who saves lives pulled by an unknown force to when and where to be before disaster strikes. What makes his targets so special, who is guiding this modern day super-hero? The answers lie at his childhood home... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kimberly Morgan | 10/18/2013

    " I started reading it but I wasn't so into it that I couldn't put it down, so I don't know how it ends or what the "power" was that drove him. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nexik | 10/8/2013

    " At beginning book was very interesting. Especially secret powers and they origin. Unfortunately in second part everything change to worse and worse. I expected from Koontz better ending "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Naching Kassa | 9/3/2013

    " Another of Dean Koontz's best! Really enjoyed the love story here, and the Superman theme. If you love heroes, you'll love this book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 7/1/2013

    " I was expecting a typical Dean Koontz thriller, but was a little let down at his attempt to do something different. Cold Fire wasn't what I thought it was, and while I respect that Koontz wanted to change things up, I really just wanted a regular thriller without the psychological twist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cyanemi | 4/19/2013

    " This was not one of my favorites. There is quite a formulaic approach to many of his books and this is one of them. The boy girl tag team romance is getting really old. This one also smacked of Stephen King which Koontz in my opinion never does. He is still one of my favorite authors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 10/25/2012

    " I enjoyed the book as it covers croos platorm genres, sci-fi, thriller, paranormal and romance. The first half of the book was amazing and I couldn't put it down the second half I did not enjoy as much, which is why I have only given it 3 stars. All in all an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eliza | 9/13/2012

    " my first Koontz book, read on the suggestion of a crack head, surprisingly good! (the book, not the crack head) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bill Lefler | 9/5/2012

    " I have enjoyed many books from Dean Koontz, both in paper form and audio, but this one just didn't hold my attention. It's very rare for me, but I stopped reading about 3/4 of the way through and returned the book to the library. I just wasn't interested in the ending at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carl | 6/20/2012

    " Gets kind of boring in the third act. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 6/6/2012

    " First Koontz book I read ... I've been hooked since. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sa'id Cortijo | 10/7/2011

    " I don't really remember much about this book, but I do remember that I was disappointed at the end of the book at the whole mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matt Cowens | 9/26/2011

    " I really enjoyed the start of this book, with its intriguing premise and pacy writing style. It built up some complicated and hard to resolve ideas around destiny, psychic ability etc. I wasn't particularly taken with the ending/resolution. I'd give it 2.5 stars if that were an option :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Sheldon | 9/9/2011

    " Enjoyed the book. Interesting characters. I have read his books from the beginning. His early books were great, but he got even better with each book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Takedown | 8/10/2011

    " Book was an interesting to the middle but boring in the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky | 6/29/2011

    " A couple decent twists, a few incorrect Psychological principles that sort of cancelled each other out "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monika | 5/9/2011

    " I remember reading this book over and over again when I was younger. There is something about it that just pulls me in. I'm not a huge fan of most of Koontz's work, but this one is definitely an exception. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MsKayle | 5/6/2011

    " I really like Dean Koontz. I have yet to find a book I don't like of his. This one, as usual, was excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 4/21/2011

    " I enjoyed the beginning portion of the book more than the ending. THe portions about the man's life saving missions were dynamic and quick. I slogged a bit with the psychology and backstory of a troubled superhero. Overall, I enjoyed the book. I may read another from this author at some point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 3/29/2011

    " Maybe 2.5 stars from the actual book, but an additional 1.5 stars simply for the performance of masterful narrators Michael Hanson and Carol Cowan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 3/27/2011

    " I've heard some people mock this book's ending. Personally, I like it just fine- but part of me is still 10 years old and wants to be a superhero, so... go figure.
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 2/4/2011

    " I'm kinda likin' Dean Koontz. His books, this one included, are creative, fun, and a bit creepy.
    I enjoyed reading this book. It was a nice escape. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 1/11/2011

    " intense, terrifying, terriffic as always with Dean Koontz "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 1/9/2011

    " Started strong and had great promise, but the resolution of the mystery was faily week. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katilo | 12/14/2010

    " Junk food reading. It kept me entertained enough to finish to the end but I wouldn't spend too much thinking about the little details. Just enjoy it for what it is...junk food reading, mindless and fun. "
