The future is haunting Odd Thomas. The carnival has returned to Pico Mundo, the same one that came to town when Odd was just 16. Odd is drawn to an arcade tent where he discovers Gypsy Mummy, the fortune-telling machine that told him that he and Stormy Llewellyn were destined to be together forever. But Stormy is dead and Pico Mundo is under threat once more. History seems to be repeating itself as Odd grapples with a satanic cult intent on bringing destruction to his town. An unseasonal storm is brewing, and as the sky darkens and the sun turns blood-red, it seems that all of nature is complicit in their plans. Meanwhile Odd is having dreams of a drowned Pico Mundo, where the submerged streetlamps eerily light the streets. But there's no way Pico Mundo could wind up underwater ... could it?

Like other reviewers, I've loved this series. While not the best plot in the series, Odd remains a engaging narrator and the ending is satisfyingly weird.

Putatively the last of the otherwise terrifically entertaining Odd Thomas stories, this series closer is, sadly, a pedestrian effort. Previous entries in the canon had young fry-cook Odd (“I see dead people”) Thomas battling all manner of supernatural beings, alien entities, mad scientists, and trans-dimensional beings as he wends his way through a very spooky Southern California that only he and very few others can see. But the politely-spoken Odd becomes a cipher in this entry, which is no more than a very ordinary hero-versus-black hats mystery. (No “Mr. Hitchcock” or “Mr. Sinatra” to provide some enjoyable asides – fans will know.) In fact, there’s not much to enjoy about Saint Odd, with a rickety plot, puzzling action-stopping flashbacks, and prose that reads as though the author grudgingly radioed it in to fulfill a publishing-contract obligation. By all means, read all of the other Odd Thomas stories. But this one is strictly for die-hard fans.

I loved this series. Odd has been one of my favorite characters. I'm sad to see the series end.

This was a great series! Fell in love with Odd Thomas and his odd story. Sorry Dean Koontz has ended the Odd series but he did end it well.

Loved the entire series. As with all of his books, Koontz manages to mix in his enduring sense of humor and finish the darkest of stories with light and hope.

Can Oddie come back as a ghost? With his talent and being a ghost (he can't be killed again), Odd Thomas could solve crimes without needing to eat, sleep or in need of a car to travel. I will miss Odd Thomas and his escapades.

Enjoyed the book. Hated to see Koontz wind up the series.

Good book but I still found the ending disappointing. It's not a surprise what happens to Odd since it's stated in the first book and repeated in the others, but it doesn't seem to be... enough. Hopefully without it being spoiler-y, I can say that for me it was like winning the battle but losing the war.
So, yeah, good book but it left me wanting more.

This book is so extremely good. Great ending. Always want more, but the series has been concluded wonderfully.
