"Loop me in, odd one. "The words, spoken in the deep of night by a sleeping child, chill
the young man watching over her. For this was a favorite phrase of Stormy Llewellyn,
his lost love, and Stormy is dead, gone forever from this world. In the haunted halls of
the isolated monastery where he had sought peace, Odd Thomas is stalking spirits of an infinitely darker nature
Through two "New York Times" bestselling novels Odd Thomas has established himself as one of the most beloved and unique fictional heroes of our time. Now, wielding all the power and magic of a master storyteller at the pinnacle of his craft, Dean Koontz follows Odd into a singular new world where he hopes to make a fresh beginning--but where he will meet an adversary as old and inexorable as time itself.
St. Bartholomew's Abbey sits in majestic solitude amid the wild peaks of California's high Sierra, a haven for children otherwise abandoned, and a sanctuary for those seeking insight. Odd Thomas has come here to learn to live fully again, and among the eccentric monks, their other guests, and the nuns and young students of the attached convent school, he has begun to find his way. The silent spirits of the dead who visited him in his earlier life are mercifully absent, save for the bell-ringing Brother Constantine and Odd's steady companion, the King of Rock 'n' Roll.
But trouble has a way of finding Odd Thomas, and it slinks back onto his path in the form of the sinister bodachs he has met previously, the black shades who herald death and disaster, and who come late one December night to hover above the abbey's most precious charges. For Odd is about to face an enemy who eclipses any he has yet encountered, as he embarks on a journey of mystery, wonder, and sheer suspense that surpasses all that has come before.

I love the Odd Thomas character and Dean Koontz is now one of my favorite writers. The only thing I didn't like about this book was it seemed to end abruptly and conveniently, though I was taken by surprise at one point. However, I love the book anyway and recommend it highly. Just because I didn't like how ended doesn't mean everyone else will too.

I found this book to be dull. I didn't care for any of the minor characters and the setting was so unremarkable. I haven't even finished the book due to how boring I find it. This book was too character driven and the character was thinking the exact same thoughts he was thinking in the earlier book. Just skip this one and try the fourth book.

The beginning just dragged for me. I almost gave up on the novel a couple times. This was definitely a letdown from the prior two Odd Thomas novels.

Odd, is a great character. His humour and personality really come through and made this book enjoyable for me. The next book in the series is even better.
