Watchers by Dean Koontz
A guest post from Teen Room Staff Collin!
Watchers by Dean Koontz is an enthralling story about a scientific experiment that produced two very different life forms; a dog, and a creature, both having super human capabilities. They both escaped from the lab where they were created and now run loose in the wild. The dog, a golden retriever named Einstein, is extremely intelligent and can understand and communicate with humans. The creature has gone on a wild killing rampage and humans are no match for its stealth and instinctive killing capabilities. The creature is jealous of Einstein and is out to kill him because it was made equally intelligent, but much more hideous, and was designed as a weapon instead of a friend. A man finds Einstein and adopts him into his home, but unintentionally puts himself and those close to him in serious danger. This story mixes the genres of science fiction, action, thriller, mystery, and romance all into one and is a perfect read for teens looking for a book that is impossible to drop, and nearly kill’s you because you need to find out what happens next. A few exciting twists and turns are thrown in as well as Einstein’s owner falls in love with a woman and they begin to start a family together, all while under the careful eye of the creature, waiting, searching, and watching for the perfect moment to kill.
