This is the third book in Koontz's gripping adaptation of Mary Shelley's original "Frankenstein". The biggest difference being that Mary Shelley's fictional account was not fiction at all. Dr. Frankenstein and the original Frankenstein monster are still alive after 200 years. Dr. Frankenstein seemingly has perfected his creation of of human-like beings and is on the verge of unleashing a sinister plan to replace humankind with his own New Race.
It's been over 3 years since the release of the last book in the series, Frankenstein : City of Night. I, like many other fans, were eagerly awaiting this third installment. Three years of wondering "what's in the tank" can really be nerve-racking. As I waited for the release date, I wondered if I should go back and reread books 1 and 2 for a refresher as to what had happened and where the story left off. I decided not to reread the other books, and after just a few pages of "Dead and Alive" it all came rushing back anyway.
As with anything that is waited for over a long period of time, there is always that nagging feeling that once you get it you may be let down. This was NOT one of those experiences. This third installment is as gripping, though-provoking, and action-packed as much as the other two. I devoured the book in less than a week and definitely found it difficult to put down.
