Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria. In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.

A harrowing taste of Roseland’s terrors convinces Odd that it’s time to hit the road again. Still, the prescient Annamaria insists that they’ve been led there for a reason. Just how deep and dreadful are the mysteries Roseland and her masters have kept for nearly a century? And what consequences await whoever is brave, or mad, enough to confront the most profound breed of evil? Odd only knows. Like his acclaimed creator, the irresistible Odd Thomas is in top-notch form—as he takes on what may well be the most terrifying challenge yet in his curious career.

Quotes & Awards

  • “With this offering Odd’s fanbase…is certain to grow, while previous admirers of his quirky charms will not be disappointed.”

    Library Journal

  • “A fast and frightening tale…Koontz blends steampunk machines, time travel, and Shakespearean wisdom [and] play[s] with descriptive language and humor in the face of danger.”

    Bookreporter

  • “This is the most fanciful…Odd Thomas escapade…An [sci-fi]-tinged tale seemingly indebted to H. G. Wells, H. P. Lovecraft, and Orson Welles. Koontz makes Odd’s narrative voice as winning as ever.”

    Booklist

  • Odd Apocalypse [has] really got everything a great book needs. The characters are complicated and interesting. The story is very unique and provides a great deal of suspense. The ending is open enough that you crave more, but aren’t left on a cliffhanger…There’s a lot to love about every Odd book.”

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer

  • “Wry, offbeat…This supernatural thriller surely ranks as one of the series’ funniest.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A 2013 Audie Award Finalist for Thriller/Suspense

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim C | 2/20/2014

    " The 5th Odd Thomas book. Odd finds himself in a place with strange happenings and once again Odd has to deal with them. I liked this book. It was a combination of sci-fi and horror but not so much that you would classify it in either genre. Odd is a likable character and you root for him to succeed. There are also bits of humor that will make you smile. Also, the cameo from a real life person was a nice touch and I am looking forward how this plays out. This is one of the better Odd Thomas books but it can be a stand alone also. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Micah | 2/16/2014

    " Amazing.. best Odd addition yet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Buzz | 2/9/2014

    " I;ve read all the Odd Thomas books. This is the best of them all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean | 2/7/2014

    " question posed by my brother: Do Dean and Stephen (King) get together and agree on a common theme for their next books? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Esmeralda | 1/27/2014

    " I do not like the Odd series as much as the Christopher Snow series. I hope this book means Christopher snow will be back soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Pollard | 1/18/2014

    " All I can say is FINALLY! And that dean koontz is a truly great storyteller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 1/16/2014

    " I love the Odd Thomas books, but have to say I was disappointed that Koontz couldn't resist playing politics in this book, which is out of character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 12/28/2013

    " really 3.5. I did not enjoy this one as much as I did the others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stefan | 12/10/2013

    " Definitely the best of the Odd Thomas series. This one was less paranormal and was edging pretty close to science fiction, but I didn't mind that because I just love the character so much that I am willing to look past those aspects. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlotte | 11/28/2013

    " I love an Odd book! Fabulous as usual, Mr. Koontz, and I was finished all too quickly..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannah | 11/12/2013

    " Erm. Well. I definitely enjoyed it better than #2 in the series, and it certainly had its fair share of humor, but after #4, I found myself disappointed in Odd Apocalypse. Worth reading if you're a fan of Odd Thomas? Certainly. Just don't expect it to surpass the level of Brother Odd. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim Janknegt | 10/9/2013

    " Not the best in the Odd Thomas series. Started off very slowly but eventually picked up speed about half way through. I liked the ending and The Ghost Tesla character intrigued me so I checked out a biography about him. I'll still read the next two. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly Ristau | 9/25/2013

    " Had a hard time getting into this one. Not my favorite, but Odd is still one of my favorite literary characters, and I'll read every Odd book just to revisit him! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 9/13/2013

    " Not my favorite Odd book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie Maloney | 5/30/2013

    " Love me some Odd Thomas! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 firecracker2007 | 4/15/2013

    " Odd is as quirky and amusing as ever. Koontz has managed, over the span of five novels and three novellas (and probably the graphic novels as well, though I've not read them), to maintain a consistent voice for this incredibly lovable character. I hope this is not the last of the odd one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 2/25/2013

    " pretty good read once you get past his holy self righteous superstitions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita Bresnan | 1/29/2013

    " You really have to be a fan of the bizarre to like this book. It is typical Dean Koontz. I love the character, Odd Thomas. He has been around in several novels which I'm sure I read but don't remember. It kept my interest, but is a genre not interesting to everyone. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marinda | 1/9/2013

    " 1.5. Only because it's Dean Koontz and I'm still holding onto the amazement from the first Odd book. This was torture to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista | 12/23/2012

    " This one wasn't the fun, quirky Odd that I know and love. This Odd Thomas was quite the high level speaker, using vocabulary that didn't fit him. It was a good story, but not one that I'd read again- and I've read the 1st 3 Odd books over and over again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne Tarrants | 11/16/2012

    " I love the Odd Thomas series but this book seemed almost too formal for lack of a better word. I'd hoped to learn more about the Annamarie character. I liked the Odd Interlude series better than this book. :( "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy Hannnon | 10/31/2012

    " This book was really weird. I almost stopped reading it when I got to a certain part. I pushed through and was glad I did. It had a good ending as the Odd Thomas series always does; the bad guy always gets 'his' in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathan Cobb | 10/4/2012

    " Very good book. I love all the odd books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith Mcguire stuertz | 8/6/2012

    " I enjoyed the other Odd books more. This had a slow start. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Frappollo | 7/25/2012

    " One of the best of the series "
