Every city has secrets. But none as terrible as this. His name is Deucalion, a tattooed man of mysterious origin, a sleight-of-reality artist who's traveled the centuries with a secret worse than death. He arrives as a serial killer stalks the streets, a killer who carefully selects his victims for the humanity that is missing in himself.

Detective Carson O'Connor is cool, cynical, and every bit as tough as she looks. Her partner Michael Maddison would back her up all the way to Hell itself, and that just may be where this case ends up. For the no-nonsense O'Connor is suddenly talking about an ages-old conspiracy, a near immortal race of beings, and killers that are more, and less, than human. Soon it will be clear that as crazy as she sounds, the truth is even more ominous. For their quarry isn't merely a homicidal maniac, but his deranged maker.

    " Oh Dean Koontz, you are my goto guy when i am sick of reading posh novels yet this time you disappoint. I've heard so much praise for this trilogy yet i am currently just over 300 pages in and NOTHING has happened! I see how Koontz tries to keep your curiosity going chapter after short chapter but 300 pages in and frankly i do not care what happens. It;s rare i get to a point in a book where i feel like reading it is more like a chore. Sometimes i lose myself so much in thought thinking about all the other books i could be reading instead of this one and dammit! i have to reread one of the chapters because i wasn't paying attention. Don't get me wrong, the story idea is great, it had so so so so SO much potential but fell flat. What do i expect from a Koontz book? well honestly, not much. A fun story. That's it. I can deal with one dimensional characters, improbabilities, i'll even go as far as saying i can deal with a predictable story! as long as it's entertaining. a key element this book lacks. "

    " This book was not good. It was just okay. I have been a fan of Knootz forever but I just couldn't connect to the characters. Maybe there was to many of them, maybe they were to similar to tell apart from one another? i don't know. It was struggle for me to finish the book. I will not be reading series. "

    " Koontz definitely excels at the weird. I like the plot of this series. He gets repetitive sometimes, and that's a big pet peeve of mine (yes, you've already mentioned they can't kill themselves or their maker, about 8 times). Other than that, it was pretty good. I started book two immediately. "
