(Book) Frankenstein 3: Dead and Alive by Dean Koontz


Zzzzzzz… I had to force myself to finish this book. I loved the first 2 in this series so I had high hopes. Wow, were those dashed. I waited 3 or so years for the final book to come out and this was it? Ugh.

I don’t want to give away plot points, you can read the description yourself, but the characters were boring, unbelievable, annoying, superficial and totally out of sync with the previous two books. The ending wasn’t even really an ending. It was more of a mercy killing.

I’ve slowly been falling out of like with Dean Koontz, his earlier work is brilliant. This one is not. I would say skip it, but if you were a true fan of the first two, you’ll want to snatch this one up and read it anyway. I can’t stop you, but I can say I tried!


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. Now the mesmerizing saga concludes. . . .

As a devastating hurricane approaches, as the benighted creations of Victor Helios begin to spin out of control, as New Orleans descends into chaos and the future of humanity hangs in the balance, the only hope rests with Victor’s first, failed attempt to build the perfect human. Deucalion’s centuries-old history began as the original manifestation of a soulless vision–and it is fated to end in the ultimate confrontation between a damned creature and his mad creator. But first they must face a monstrosity not even Victor’s malignant mind could have conceived–an indestructible entity that steps out of humankind’s collective nightmare with powers, and a purpose, beyond imagining.
