2015 Book #23 – Saint Odd

saintoddI knew Saint Odd was the last of the series, and I approached it with some trepidation. The title seems to indicate Odd will die, and I didn’t want that.

It starts out with a bang. Odd is returning to Pico Mundo, riding a motorcycle, which eeems out of character. The writing of his thoughts as well, don’t quite seem to be what I expected.

He’s pursued by a truck trying to kill him. He evades it, and it wrecks, catching on fire. He continues on to Pico to visit the mall from the first book. However is memories are interrupted when three members of the cult from the previous book are there. They see him, but he manages to escape to go meet with the chief and his mentor for breakfast. He lets them know something bad is coming. He can’t tell them what, but he moves on.

The book then moves between a thriller, with the help of his friends from the previous book, and supernatural, with the continuation of some satanic group. There are no bodachs, and it really seems the series moved in a way I hadn’t expected after the first 4 books.

However it’s a good read, and it wraps up things at the end in a good way.
