Review:

It’s been a while since I last read a Dean Koontz book & it felt good to read his writing again. Elsewhere pulled me in, right into everywhere. Dean Koontz crafted a clever little plot about multiple worlds, hope, and valor.

Once upon a time, Jeffy had his happy-ever-afterβ€”his wife, Michelle, and their beautiful treasureβ€”his daughter, Amity. Then his wife left, shattering his world. He picked up the pieces and went on for his daughter’s sake, and the two of them rebuilt their world. Then one day, their tiny world is sent into yet another upheaval, in the hope of finding Michelle again.

I liked the main characters a lot and the plot twists kept me hooked. I enjoyed the different worlds, not to mention the anticipation and adrenaline at danger. The ending was quite a satisfactory one & a good fit for the story.

Stay tuned.

Blurb:
Since his wife, Michelle, left seven years ago, Jeffy Coltrane has worked to maintain a normal life for himself and his eleven-year-old daughter, Amity, in Suavidad Beach. It’s a quiet life, until a local eccentric known as Spooky Ed shows up on their doorstep.
Ed entrusts Jeffy with hiding a strange and dangerous objectβ€”something he calls β€œthe key to everything”—and tells Jeffy that he must never use the device. But after a visit from a group of ominous men, Jeffy and Amity find themselves accidentally activating the key and discovering an extraordinary truth. The device allows them to jump between parallel planes at once familiar and bizarre, wondrous and terrifying. And Jeffy and Amity can’t help but wonder, could Michelle be just a click away?
Jeffy and Amity aren’t the only ones interested in the device. A man with a dark purpose is in pursuit, determined to use its grand potential for profound evil. Unless Amity and Jeffy can outwit him, the place they call home may never be safe again.
