Book 7: Velocity

Dean Koontz is about the only horror author that I read. Although his books are utterly terrifying, they are not cynical or devoid of human goodness and beauty. In Velocity, Koontz’s protagonist is put in the harrowing position of having to make choices about who lives and who dies. Throughout this trial, he is simultaneously caring for and trying to protect his financee, who has been in a coma for several years.

The last line is a perfect example of Koontz’s ultimate idealism and hope: “What will happen will happen. There is time for miracles until there is no more time, but time has no end.”
