really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy
Read in November, 2010

I would never have picked up this series if not for Netflix. You can thank them for my interest, Mr. Koontz!
I saw a made-for-tv treatment of a script adapted from the first title in this series, "Prodigal Son" and looked it up on Wikipedia for more information. Once I learned it had been based on a story by Dean Koontz, and that there was a series to be read, I rushed out to my local library and skimmed the first few pages to see if the work would be to my taste.
While the author's style isn't entirely what I would normally enjoy, I have to admit I loved the unique psychological aspects and themes that Mr. Koontz explores. God complexes, Narcissism, Nihilism, and Fatalism are all explored, some more than others. But all to interesting effect.
It's not a series for everyone. By-and-large it's a bit dark and somewhat gritty. But interesting!
