About this item
Foraging for supplies by night in a beautiful but hostile urban world where strangers would kill him on sight, Addison endures a solitary existence before meeting a quicksilver girl engaged in a dangerous duel of wits with a malicious, well-placed enemy.
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, "#1 "New York Times" bestselling author Dean Koontz blends mystery, suspense, and acute insight into the human soul in a masterfully told tale that will resonate with readers forever.
Advance praise for "Innocence"
"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. . . . Something different this way comes from Mr. Koontz's imagination."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"Imaginative, mystical thriller . . . the most satisfying Koontz standalone in a while."--"Publishers Weekly"
"As speedy a chase-thriller as any Koontz, a past master of the form, has ever constructed . . . The clamor for a new Koontz will be heard . . . especially when his fans hear how good this one is."--"Booklist" (starred review)
