Odd Interlude, Dean Koontz’s New York Times bestselling three-part digital series—now in one volume for the first time.
 
THERE’S ROOM AT THE INN. BUT YOU MIGHT NOT GET OUT.
 
Nestled on a lonely stretch along the Pacific coast, quaint roadside outpost Harmony Corner offers everything a weary traveler needs—a cozy diner, a handy service station, a cluster of cottages . . . and the Harmony family homestead presiding over it all. But when Odd Thomas and company stop to spend the night, they discover that there’s more to this secluded haven than meets the eye—and that between life and death, there is something more frightening than either.
 
“[Odd Thomas is] one of the most remarkable and appealing characters in current fiction.”—The Virginian-Pilot
 
“An inventive . . . mix of suspense, whimsy and uplift.”—The Washington Post
 
“Odd Thomas is the greatest character Dean Koontz has ever created. He’s funny, humble, immensely likable, courageous, and just a joy to read about.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer
 
“Koontz gives [Odd Thomas] wit, good humor, a familiarity with the dark side of humanity—and moral outrage.”—USA Today

Odd Interlude: A Special Odd Thomas Adventure by Dean KoontzI'm not sure what I think of this book, it is spooky, hypnotic, mesmerizing, surprising, creepy, funny and weird. The plot is simple: Odd, Annamaria and the dogs (Raphael & Boo the ghostdog) arrive in Harmony Corners, something extremely strange is going on, Odd gets to the bottom of it and saves the day. The beauty of this short tale is in the writing. Koontz weaves the story like he's creating a tapestry of words. I read huge pieces of it aloud to anyone that would stand still and listen! Not much development of characters but that's fine, there is enough swashbuckling action and fantastical out of this world 'stuff' to keep Odd fans happy until the next novel hits the shelves. 3 starsread more

A terrific build up to Odd Apocalypse. It's been a few years since I've read an Odd Thomas novel, so this brought me back into that world and got me ready for the latest adventure of Odd Thomas.read more

This is available as a Kindle book (actually, three installments, numbered - Odd-ly enough - 1, 2 and 3, but they constitute one novel intended as a free-standing story between events in Odd Hours and the up-coming Odd Apocalypse). The story involves a small town located by a highway exit not far from a supposedly closed Army base. The town (which actually is populated by members of the same family who run the motel, diner and service station at the exit) has, for five years, been under the influence of some "force" that has terrorized the whole family and controls their entire lives. Odd sets out to free the inhabitants of the town. The story is not quite like the other Odd Thomas books - it lacks much of the essence of Odd that sets the other stories in the series apart, but it does have a nice sense of suspense about it. Some parts felt a bit contrived, and that's a bit disappointing.The concept of presenting the story in three individually purchased segments is interesting. If, after buying the first, you don't care for the story, you needn't buy the rest, thus saving money; however, if used unscrupulously, it could be used as a tool to increase the overall price of the book, by hooking you onto the story, then "forcing" you to continue paying to finish the read. Fortunately, Koontz and Amazon use their powers properly, charging only $1.99 per segment, totaling up $5.97 for a complete, novel-length story. I think this is a fair price, and a reasonable price to pay for a fairly good story.
