Odd Thomas, the boy who sees the ghosts of the dead, continues his adventures in Odd Apocalypse. While traveling with the mysterious and very pregnant Annamaria, Odd finds himself a houseguest at Roseland, an opulent estate owned by a reclusive billionaire. As usual, Odd attracts the attention of a local unhappy spirit, this time in the form of a beautiful woman astride an equally impressive horse. Her silent pleas for help lead Odd on a dangerous and unexpected journey into a world where reality is uncertain and basic truths are called into question.
Odd continues to be an endearing character, though this new adventure was not my favorite. I keep wanting to see more development to his character and story. Maybe we’ll see that in his continuing adventures.
