DEAN KOONTZ'S CITY OF NIGHT
They are stronger, heal better, and think faster than any humans ever created-and they must be destroyed. But 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. Now the only hope rests in a one-time "monster" and his all-too-human partners, Detectives Carson O'Connor and Michael Maddison. Deucalion's centuries-old history began as Victor's first and failed attempt to build the perfect human-and it is fated to end in the ultimate confrontation between a damned creature and his mad creator. But first Deucalion must destroy a monstrosity not even Victor's malignant mind could have imagined-an indestructible entity that steps out of humankind's collective nightmare with one purpose: to replace us.

I rarely ever read because I get frustrated with how long it takes me to read something because I read at a very slow pace, and I will find myself reading the same sentence over and over again, but I finished this book in under a week. Once I started reading I was completely hooked into it and I only put it down when my vision began to get too blurry to read anymore. This series does a good job of bringing the Frankenstein story into our time and combining it with todays fears about how far is too far when it comes to cloning. I will reccomend this book to anyone who will let me.

I would strongly recommend reading the first book in Koontz's Frankenstein series, The Prodigal Son, before starting City of Night, though it isn't completely necessary. This book follows directly from events that left readings begging for more in the first book and whirlwinds its way through sub-plots, twisting and turning around several characters. With the third book due to be released, now would be the perfect time to begin this fascinating and enthralling series. These modern-day Frankenstein novels rival Odd Thomas's stories for my favourite Koontz series.

Frankenstein adaptions are usually pretty boring but this one is very different. The characters are fabulous. I even found myself shedding a tear for the Head and Hand. And how could you not love the monkish Monster with his magic coin trick. The only thing I hated about the book is the ending which leaves a lot of the story hanging. I can't wait to read the second book to find out what happens next. Will the evil guy get his comeuppance? I can't wait to find out. I thoroughly recommend this book. It's a great read.
