Koontz is back with a vengeance!
Where to start, I have been reading Dean Koontz since I was a teenager and discovered Watchers. I loved the way his books just seemed to draw you and make you feel like you were in that book. As I got older I wasn't reading his work as much as I had when I was a kid. I think his Frankenstein series is the latest work I have read. But I won't lie from the moment I saw this cover I knew I had to read this, I didn't even bother reading the blurb I just had to have this.
I entered the giveaway and to date it's the only one I have won, and given the feel of this book I have to say I don't believe in coincidences.
This is deeply imaginative book that plays on all of your emotions and thoughts.
Bibi is a young woman who wakes one day to find she is having symptoms of a something bad, she knows it's not a stroke but she just isn't sure. She enters the hospital only to discover that she has a rare brain cancer that there is no hope of surviving and so begins the journey to save Ashley Bell.
I am not going to give anymore spoilers because I feel like even those small moments at the beginning of the book that set up everything are too important to share. Part of the magic of this book is discovering it all with Bibi.
I just can't stop with the feels, this book is all the magic of Watchers, period, it just comes alive in your head, I mean I was almost in tears 44 pages in. This is by far some of Dean Koontz best work, if you love Koontz than this book is for you, if you are wondering what the fuss is about this book is for you. Ashley Bell is a thriller, filled with the magic that Dean Koontz is famous for and a wonderful book about life all rolled up into one!
