Very disappointed in this one. It felt like Koontz just wanted the whole story to end and didn‘t put much thought, effort, or care into it.

#literarycrush #feistyfeb. I have crushes on many fictional characters: Original and Modern Mr Darcy - Roarke because who doesn't love rich, smart men with an accent-speaking of accents, Jamie, there is something about a kilt - or Odd he lives up to his name but he is Forever loyal to his one true love ❤️
