Welcome back Dean Koontz! My love for his books have been rekindled after a 10 year split! I absolutely love this book! It’s has twists and turns that I didn’t see coming, and I just couldn’t put ti down. I laughed, cried, said a few choice words (yes they were out loud), and even ignored people to I could live in this world for a few more minutes. I even told my friend ” You know a book is awesome when the suspense is making your heart race because you know something is about to happen, and you just want to keep reading faster because it’s killing you not knowing.” This is how great this book is! I’m very happy I got this book as and ARC from NetGalley.com
The city changed my life and showed me that the world is deeply mysterious. I need to tell you about her and some terrible things and wonderful things and amazing things that happened . . . and how I am still haunted by them. Including one night when I died and woke and lived again.
Here is the riveting, soul-stirring story of Jonah Kirk, son of an exceptional singer, grandson of a formidable “piano man,” a musical prodigy beginning to explore his own gifts when he crosses a group of extremely dangerous people, with shattering consequences. Set in a more innocent time not so long ago, The City encompasses a lifetime but unfolds over three extraordinary, heart-racing years of tribulation and triumph, in which Jonah first grasps the electrifying power of music and art, of enduring friendship, of everyday heroes.
The unforgettable saga of a young man coming of age within a remarkable family, and a shimmering portrait of the world that shaped him, The City is a novel that speaks to everyone, a dazzling realization of the evergreen dreams we all share. Brilliantly illumined by magic dark and light, it’s a place where enchantment and malice entwine, courage and honor are found in the most unexpected quarters, and the way forward lies buried deep inside the heart.
