*I'm skipping 14 & 15 to post this series together and will come back to those 2 after im done with this series.
the past is never the past. without forgetting, there is no future for me. 

What strange science made Nameless who he is? What catastrophes have been erased from his memories? In the stunning conclusion of this series, the dark past comes flooding back, and Nameless must decide how much he really wants to know.

In Indiana, a murderous psycho has kidnapped his own six-year-old stepson, Jamie, and secreted him away in a subterranean cave. It’s become their bunker. For Nameless, the case is breaking down his defenses, and it may force him to face his memories.

THOUGHTS
huh. 
okay. 

well, here we finally are. 
the end. 

i gotta say with this book i feel like i expected a little bit more as far as Jamie and his whole story. 
i feel like it happened so fast. it felt like his story should have taken a little bit longer to conclude but it happens in the blink of an eye.  
but maybe that was the point...it gets "easier" because Nameless knows what he's doing or because he's starting to remember...?
iduno. 
i just know that that was a liiiiiiitle bit of a letdown. 

you do learn the back story of Nameless and why he is the way he is and its sad but its...iduno. 

this last book felt somewhat rushed. 

as for the end of the series.....well, honestly, i think i have to maybe read this book one more time because i'm like whatever's about it. 
as a whole story (all 6 of them), they were good but maybe not the best of the best. 
i'm kinda on both ends about this. 
i like it and i'm glad i bought the short stories (even though they are free for Unlimited Kindle) but mostly, i'm just waiting for his new book out next month. and i still stand with book #3 being my fave!

i'm glad i heard these. i feel like even if it didn't end super amazingly great, it still overall was a good series. i'm just ready for the next book release! 

jump over for spoilers! 
kthxbyye!

Nameless book 5: the mercy of snakes // Dean Koontz

SYNOPSIS
A series of suspicious deaths in a retirement home draws Nameless into the confidence of a terrified former resident—and into the dark heart of a shocking conspiracy. In part five of the Nameless series, it’s time to hunt.

Oakshore Park is Michigan’s most exclusive assisted-living community. Presided over by two killer angels of mercy, it’s also the go-to facility in assisted dying. For a cut, they make impatient heirs happy. Nameless must concoct a scheme just as cunning. But righteous retribution stirs disquiet in the avenger as light starts to shine on the black hole of his past. Should he welcome it or keep running?
THOUGHTS
mk, mk. 
came back a little bit better here. 
this one was interesting to me in the way that everything was set up so that the bad guys could take care of themselves. 

definite pick up after book #4 was a bit of a let down for me. 

it was an interesting choice to write about this wealthy ass dude who is killing elderly people for a fee so that the rich, snotty heirs could get their hands on the money that is owed to them just for simply existing. and while that is the plot for this story, i feel like it focused more on taking the bad guys out and making all of that happen vs spending time on killing more elderly. 

i liked the way Nameless once again made the bad guys do all his "dirty" work for him but how he basically also said fuck it and took care of it himself too. 

and now knowing the twist. per se, i gotta say!, i love how Koontz's minds works!!!

this was another good one!

Truth. There is no one truth. Everyone has his own truth. It’s all about point of view.


SYNOPSIS
In a town where the corrupt are protected, a bereaved mother seeks retribution for an arsonist’s deadly crimes. Only Nameless can help ease the burden of her grief—and satisfy her rage—in part four of this thrilling series.

After a suspicious house fire, Regina Belmont lost her two children, was left disfigured, and was abandoned by her gutless husband. Brokenhearted and bullied into silence by corrupt officials, Regina’s only recourse for truth and justice is Nameless. There’s something about this case that’s breaking Nameless’s heart as well. But can he bear to remember why?

THOUGHTS
this one was just okay. 
nothing too crazy and not as detailed as all others before it. 
probably my least favorite

we know what he's going in for and i like that he manages to solve it all by "keeping his hands clean" but there wasn't any of the usual pizzazz in this one that the others before have had. 

this one involves fire. 
i feel like A LOT could have been done with that but it was all pretty simple. although, the title is fighting after you've read the story in its entirety. 

and he didn't come back to meet with Regina afterward which i feel like he has done with the others one way or another.
maybe its a sign of something. 

maybe in book book 6 we'll see them all tie up? 
but honestly maybe not because that one has less chapters than the ones before it while the ones before it have had more than the one previous...i duno. 

idunno. 

even if its not highly up there, i still cannot wait to continue this series. 

A sea of lies can’t wash away a single grain of truth. Truth is what it is.

Denial endures because it soothes. 

SYNOPSIS
A deadly black widow has eliminated three husbands and counting. But Nameless knows her one weakness. To bring truth and its consequences to her crimes, the vigilante must spin a web of his own in part three of the Nameless series.
Lucia—current last name, Rickenbah—has made a fortune by marrying rich men who tend to drop dead. But the superstitious blonde believes in more than money and murder. Nameless’s job is to scare a confession out of Lucia, and as the psychological warfare escalates, even he may be in for a shock.

THOUGHTS
ooooh! this one was good. 
i liked this one! 
its only the third one in the series but this one by far is my fave! 

especially because it has a lot of superstitions going on with the main evil character. and if you believe in them then this one is for youuuu. although, i can only really imagine this making you anxious. 

anyway, i was shocked that this one had a female character since the last two were men but i liked that it was finally a woman. because they can also be evil. and evil she is but man was she fucked up in the head before she decided to be evil and take as she pleased.  

this one was exactly what book one was: detailed but with a whole lot more. 
man did they really fuck her up here. 
i especially love how everything is all completely tied. from the name Nameless uses to talk to Valjean (Lucia's mom) to what that names actually means to Lucia. 
the way that the superstitions get used!
and that end! 
i mean the literal end. 
haha!

i loved everything about this short story. 
cant wait to see what else is in store!  


the past cannot be altered but he can take steps to change the future.

Nameless book 2: photographing the dead // dean koontz

published: 2019
pages: 58

book: 12 in 2020

In fact, Palmer has no friends. no one does. friendship is an illusion, like love and compassion. Palmer's true identity is Death....Death has no illusions. 
SYNOPSIS
A self styled artist is getting away with murder in Death Valley. If all goes well, so will Nameless. In part two of the Nameless series, the relentless avenger is haunted by nightmares of the past and visions of what’s to come.

Palmer Oxenwald’s hunting ground is the Mojave wasteland. His victims are random tourists and hikers. His trophies are cherished photographs of the damage he’s done. His greatest threat is Nameless. Two men with one thing in common: memories of the dead. For a psychopath like Palmer, they’re a clear rush in black and white. For Nameless, they’re visions of violence buried and erased. But for how long? 

THOUGHTS
hmm...when i stop and think about it, this one wasnt as clever-ish as the first but its still good if only because it shows the "sense of humor" that they have for dishing out punishment to those that deserve it. 

while this one wasnt as heavily detailed/planned as the first, its still, well, its very serving of how homeboy goes. i mean, i thought it was pretty clever. it only makes sense since, mountains and trails and shit. 

i have always had a fear of hiking solo. 
i now have an even more profound fear of hiking EVEN with someone else while carrying a loaded weapon. (i used to hike with someone else and well they showed me their true colors so humph!) 
i guess my fear of going into my backyard past sundown is even more justified. 
hell, even my fear of marriage has been further cemented. (LOL JK! but sorta) 

im trying to be very, ahm, elusive (illusive? secret-ish) so that i don't give anything away. 

but i will say this, if i was scared to go back to Yosemite after the Blairwitch project came out, this only proves to me that its better i enjoy it from a far. 
or with a giant group. which i dont have. so from a far it is. 

(can you tell how much of a chicken shit i am! lol) 


lol. either way, another good quick read! 

jump over for spoilers! 
kthxbyye!
