    Jane Hawk Impresses As Always.

    Note: The Forbidden Door is the fourth instalment in the Jane Hawk series from Dean Koontz. While it can be read as a stand-alone story, I highly recommend you read the first three in the series. Badass Mama Bear, Jane Hawk has learned her best friends, tasked with taking care of her five-year-old son, have been killed. It's up to her to travel to Borrego Springs, where The Arcadians, a group indulged in a conspiracy to take over the world, are no doubt waiting for her. She has to rescue Travis, who has been left in the care of autistic loner, Cornell, and bring him once more to safety. She enlists the help of a couple of characters we've met before, even if they seem a very unlikely group of aides, and springs into action. Of course, it doesn't all go according to plan. In Texas, her in-laws are being hunted, and in Borrego Springs, a batch of newly adjusted people have gone bat-shit crazy and Jane, along with former lawman Luther and the adorably hysterical grandfather Bernie, must deal with the unexpected. The Forbidden Door is written from a few viewpoints and focuses on more than a couple of characters. And that's where Mr Koontz really shows his mastery, flitting in and out of each complex, occasionally dark and often seriously disturbing personality with ease. I have no clue how he does it, but I'm a true fan. He keeps up a hectic pace, alternating between the plains of Texas and the Mojave Desert. Having spent a wedding anniversary riding my motorcycle to the Anza-Borrego State Park just outside of Borrego Springs, I could actually picture the places where some of the events took place, which added a terrifying element of reality to the whole thing and the short preview of the next in the series automatically threw me in to "I want it now" mode! If you're into strong female characters and fast-paced thrilling action with a heaping helping of conspiracy, the Jane Hawk series is a must for you. (I was given this book in return for my honest review)

    They will stop at nothing to get to Jane.

    This is my first book by this author. I really liked most of the characters and it was easy to dislike a lot of the others. I want to know more about Jane Hawk and so I will have to go back and read the previous books in this series. Jane needs to save her son. She has to get to him before the Arcadians get to him. They have no problem with using anyone else to further their agenda so they put Jane's in-laws, a family in Texas and a whole town in California in jeopardy to get to Jane. Jane really doesn't like what she has to do, but to save her child, she would do anything. Along the way, she has made some good friends who are willing to help her even if it could cost them their lives.

    The Forbidden Door

    Continuing the ongoing adventure with Jane and her urgent journey to protect and save her son, Mr. Koontz boxes her in an area of Texas and describes her attempts to save her son after his guardians have been found and killed by the revolutionary Arcadians. The top agents in the Revolution have at their disposal the nanotechnology that allows them to completely control anyone injected with the solution; the adjusted people, those who no longer have self will, must do as they are told. They cannot disobey as they no longer have the ability to think and reason--they are bodies without a soul. Occasionally the process turns one or more of these shells into raging, cruel, out-of-control insane killers, which is termed The Forbidden Door. Mr. Koontz is one of the greatest writers of mesmerizing imagery, able to capture your heart and mind with fabulous descriptions whether it be the glories of a desert sunset, a tumultuous thunderstorm, or a raging, maniacal bloodthirsty killer.

    More Jane Hawk!

    I received this book through NetGalley and its publisher, Bantam. This is the fourth novel in the Jane Hawk series. The book continues with the pursuit of the FBI’s most wanted, Jane Hawks, while Jane attempts to retrieve her son from hiding. I enjoyed the book but it is beginning to feel like more of the same from the previous books in the series. That is why I dropped the rating from four stars to three. Hopefully the next book, The Night Window, has some new twists.

    The Forbidden Door

    Dean Koontz's latest Jane Hawk story is The Forbidden Door. Lots of edge of your seat while holding your breath moments in this book. This is the fourth Hawks novel (which I had mistakenly thought was only going to be three) and as much as I've enjoyed them I am anxious for them to come to an end and know there is at least one more. I was given an early copy to review.
