TITLE: BROTHER ODD
AUTHOR: DEAN KOONTZ
Details: no. 3 Odd Thomas
After surviving the horrendous and tragic events that took place in Pico Mundo (in books one and two), Odd Thomas has left his home town for a remote monastery in the High Sierra.
But Odd, being who and what he is, can't escape the mysterious, the ghosts and the horror for long. After several months of peace and quiet he spots three bodachs in the building and knows that he has very little time before death and destruction will be unleashed on this peaceful sanctuary.
Not knowing exactly who he can trust and up against a force unlike anything he has encountered before, Odd has a major struggle on his hands if he wants to safe the lives of all of the innocents around him.
For some reason I didn't enjoy this book as much as the previous two. It wasn't nearly as compulsive a read for me, although I can't quite put my finger on the reason for that. However, I enjoy the series as a whole enough to want to continue on with it.
