Praise for Innocence
“A mystery that’s either chilling and fulfilling.”People (four stars)

“Laced with fantastical mysticism, it’s an allegory of nonviolence, recognition and love within the face of adversity. . . . The narrative is severe, with an old school ominousness and artistically crafted descriptions. . . . An positive and unforeseen end [mirrors] his subject. whatever diverse this manner comes from Mr. Koontz’s mind's eye. Enjoy.”Kirkus Reviews
“Mystery and terror, the mystical and romance—all mix to make Innocence a difficult and emotional experience.”New York magazine of Books
“This novel relatively is whatever specific. . . . this can simply be the e-book Dean Koontz was once born to write.”Thriller Books Journal

“Entrancing . . . as quick a chase-thriller as any Koontz . . . has ever developed. Written in Koontz’ overdue mellifluent and reflective demeanour . . . [Innocence is] fueled by means of deep disgust with the world’s evils [and] wish for redemption.”Booklist (starred review)
“[An] innovative, mystical mystery from bestseller Koontz . . . this can be the main pleasant Koontz standalone in a while.”Publishers Weekly
“Masterful storyteller Koontz promises might be his so much eerie and weird story to this point. The timeline during this outstanding tale is compact, and readers might be swept alongside as they fight to solve tricks and clues as to the genuine nature of either the protagonists and the unfolding drama. Unpredictably spine-chilling and terrifying, this can be a tale readers won’t quickly forget.”RT e-book Reviews
“Elegant . . . enthusiasts of Koontz’s past sequence can be left hoping that Addison and Gwyneth, too, will return.”Library Journal
