Blahhhh… Liked the 1st one, enjoyed the 2nd, loved the 3rd, but the penultimate (as of now) iteration of the Odd Thomas series is just dull. Like the other followups, it picks up where it’s predecessor leaves off but really doesn’t pull off much of a story. Recycles a lot of the Odd Thomas themes: quirky back and forth, reluctant hero misadventure, dead side-kicks… Still, it just falls flat. The story drags, the point really isn’t all that clear, and the ending is just washes flat. Liked the 1sst three, though–might give the series one more chance with the final installment, but this was pretty unimpressive.
