Lightning by Dean Koontz

Bolts of lightning for us are natural phenomenons forking up in the sky but for Laura Shane it is anything but natural. These lightnings bring tidings, a foreboding or worse, a fate on the brink of death. For each time it strikes somewhere nearby, she knows she'll be in danger and with certainty, she knows her mysterious "guardian angel" will appear to save her.

A book of paradoxes is what this is. It lets your mind cruise along its assuming path then flips out on you while your brain scrambles back to get its bearings. Out of all Koontz books, this is an instant favorite even after all these years, even for a non-science junkie like me.

Its got almost everything mixed up in it; a dab of science, coats of fantasy, big guns, a roller coaster ride, courage, strength, and when you really think about it, it is also about great love. A love to go through hell and back for or so the saying goes. Anymore to tell and I'd probably spoil the whole thing. Secrets are quite crucial here.

Laura, perhaps, is one of my favorite heroines of all time. She's my kind of woman. Koontz usually writes his female characters strong and spunky, not a damsel in distress.

In the end, the story will just grab hold of you. I cannot imagine readers not being touched by the characters and not learning a little more from life.

“That was…interesting.” “I never thought I’d see those two mediums used together.” “I may have to stab my own eyes out to make sure I never see it again,” Brooke said and then shuddered. They had just left the art gallery, and she waited until they were at the corner before looking at Owen. “I…
