He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen.
She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found.
But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance - and nothing less than destiny - has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.
In Innocence, number-one New York Times best-selling author Dean Koontz blends mystery, suspense, and acute insight into the human soul in a masterfully told tale that will resonate with listeners forever.

What the Critics Say

"Laced with fantastical mysticism, it’s an allegory of nonviolence, acceptance and love in the face of adversity. . . . The narrative is intense, with an old-fashioned ominousness and artistically crafted descriptions. . . . An optimistic and unexpected conclusion [mirrors] his theme. Something different this way comes from Mr. Koontz’s imagination. Enjoy." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Entrancing . . . as speedy a chase-thriller as any Koontz . . . has ever constructed. Written in Koontz’ late mellifluent and reflective manner . . . [Innocence is] fueled by deep disgust with the world’s evils [and] hope for redemption" (Booklist, starred review)
"[An] imaginative, mystical thriller from bestseller Koontz . . . This is the most satisfying Koontz standalone in a while" (Publishers Weekly)

Well that was painful...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. I didn't like it. I just couldn't get into it. I started it five times and it bored me. The sixth time I figured I should give it a chance but I will never get those hours back.


What could Dean Koontz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

There is nothing in the book that could've been changed I just should have read a different book


How could the performance have been better?

It was boring


If this book were a film would you go see it?

No!


Any additional comments?

I am actually a Dean Koontz fan and have listened to almost all of his books, this one I really didn't like though.
