Book Description

July 28 2009 Frankenstein (Book 2)
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. The mystery, the myth, the terror, and the magic continue. . . .

They are stronger, heal better, and think faster than any humans ever created–and they must be destroyed. 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. Only the one-time “monster” Deucalion and his all-too-human partners, Detectives Carson O’Connor and Michael Maddison, stand in their way. But as the three race to uncover the true dimensions of an age-old conspiracy, they will discover that Victor’s new, improved models have infiltrated every level of the city’s society . . . and far beyond.

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Relax. Dean Koontz's Frankenstein, volume one of which, Prodigal Son (2005), was a pulse-pounder all the way, is going to be a trilogy. But don't expect to relax all that much. This book cooks, no second-volume doldrums anywhere in it. Its short, punchy chapters, 80 in all, seem to reflect the whole saga's TV miniseries origins in their jump-cutting between plot trajectories, but that seeming also owes much to the visualizability, so to speak, of everything in the book. But enough about technique. The manufactured young man who went AWOL from 200-plus-year-old Victor Helios-ne-Frankenstein's labs in Prodigal Son turns out to be not the only improved Frankenstein monster who is behaving strangely. Since he was created autistic for experimental purposes, he may be the least strange of the lot. Some of his "normal" fellows are mutating a la Alien, none more spectacularly than Victor's body guard. Deucalion, the original monster, now greatly humanized, especially ethically and morally, realizes that the mutations portend a much larger wave of breakdowns among the so-called New Race. That bodes very ill for a New Orleans heavily salted with Victor's creations, all of them programmed to kill mere humans at Victor's command, which the mutants no longer obey. Meanwhile, NOPD detectives Carson O'Connor and Michael Maddison prepare to hunt Victor down, even as a couple of hit-person New Racers track them. And then there is Erica Five, Victor's brand-new "wife," learning to be a better spouse by exploring hubby's house. Smart dialogue and cutting-edge scientific notions (Deucalion has learned how to teleport) are the oh-so-sweet icing on this delectable thriller's irresistible, devourable cake. Ray Olson

Review

“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

4.0 out of 5 stars A great follow up, NOW KEEP GOING! Aug. 11 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Koontz has come back with this brilliant sequel to, in this readers opinion, one of his best novels ever.

This part of the story is bassically all about the soldiers of Victor Helios, a.k.a Victor Frankenstein, which are now going insane, and completing their transformations into the mutated neo-human monsters we first saw in part one. The programming that Victor has used to keep his minions under control is slipping away, and they are now free to being experimenting with their homicidal erges. Those who have "evolved" into their grotesque new forms have taken up residence underneath a landfill, owned by Victor for the purposes of disposing of his failed projects, and are creating some hidden terror for the world to experience.

Carson O'Connor's little brother Arnie, who suffers from autism, is being stalked by one of Victors many failed experiments. This rejected neo-human was an early experiment designed to mimic a extream case of autism in an attempt to further Victor's understanding of human nerology. The reject believes that he can learn how to cure himself of autism by some secret of happiness, which he believes Arnie has hidden within him.

Ducaleon, a.k.a the Monster, continues his attempts to aid the two heroic police officers in their attempt to uncover the truth behind Victor's plans, and bring to light a way to stop them.

This novel doesn't really close any doors opened by the first novel, but adds a host of new dimentions to them.

This was a great read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Koontz's Frankenstein series is great Dec 5 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading the first Frankenstein book by Koontz I had to buy the next two. I enjoyed all three but the first is my favorite. I have read most of Koontz's books. Intensity was the first one I read and still one of my favorites; It got me hooked on Dean Koontz's novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read April 24 2010
Format:Paperback
I haven't been much of a Dean Koontz fan, but a friend introduced me to this series. I thought the concept of Frankenstein and his creation in the 21st century New Orleans was novel and interesting. It was a good book to read while suntanning, or on vacation. An easy read and an exciting trilogy of books.
