    This is book four of the Jane Hawk series. I’m normally one to start at the beginning of a series in anticipation of getting the most out of it. But truly, with this series, each book leans heavily on the last. I can’t imagine reading this series out of order.Jane Hawk has been on the run (for her life) from the Arcadians. A powerful group who pose a threat to the country and more importantly, to humanity. With the use of nanotechnology this ...

    I’m gonna start with a secret. For long time readers there is some exquisite satisfaction to be found in The Forbidden Door. No, to casual readers of this review-I did not mean porn type. To interested readers of this review, the book could be read as a standalone if you like heart racing action; but why not quadruple your pleasure and read all of the Jane Hawk books?It is a bit unwieldy to keep referring to the bad guy elites as the techno Arc...

    This series gets more and more intense! This is the fourth book in the Jane Hawk series and they are all good. Jane is a hero - a character to love and respect and root for. In this episode her son is in grave danger and she must rescue him before the Techno-Arcadians get him. This is no easy task and she has to make quick decisions, obtain assistance from people she trusts, and hope for the best. The tension builds edge-of-your-seat style. There...

    The Jane Hawk novels seem to be following the pattern set by the Odd Thomas series: first book, excellent; second book, terrible; third book, surprisingly great; fourth book, an overlong slog.I’m beginning to notice a pattern in the Jane Hawk novels, too: the ones padded out with chapter upon chapter decidedly not focused on Hawk tend to be weak. For long stretches of time, The Forbidden Door is not about Hawk at all, or even her son, but rando...

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank Random House and the author.This is the fourth book of the Jane Hawk series. Even though this is the fourth book it can be read as a stand alone novel. At the end of the third novel Jane learned that her son might be in trouble. This book tells of Jane's journey to get to her son and rescue him.This series by Dean Koontz has been really enjoyable even ...

    If it's possible to have a love-hate relationship with a book, this is it. On the one hand, the writing is almost exquisite, virtually ensuring my reluctance to put it down. Conversely, wading through page after page hoping that yet another important character won't bite the dust - probably in a most horrific way - is borderline unbearable. Characters I adore; other characters so loathesome that I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemies.Oh, what a...

    With this 4th installment in the Jane Hawk series, protagonist Jane has solidified as my favorite character ever of Dean Koontz, and I'm pretty sure I've read most of his books. Once again, I inhaled this book and couldn't stop reading tonight until I finished. And yes, it's about 1:30 am. The action never seems to let up as Jane rushes to get her son back before he can be captured by the evil Techno Arcadians after his guardians are killed. A ne...

    This is the fourth book in the exciting Jane Hawk series. Previously in the series, former FBI top agent Jane Hawk's husband was believed to have committed suicide. Jane did not believe the official FBI story and investigated on her own. She has discovered American citizens are being injected with nano-technology enabling the helpless victims to be downloaded with commands. To protect Travis, her small five year old, from danger Jane has secreted...

    As usual, Mr. Koontz is very wordy! It took me around 50 pages or so to get over my exasperation with him. But, I ended up truly loving this book. The characters are all indeed characters. Lovable, funny, intelligent and caring. I even enjoyed the bad guys, mostly. The nihilist was an odd duck. Very odd. The Princeton hillbilly is definitely one of my favorite bad guys ever. I was never rooting for him, but he sure made me laugh! This book didn't...

    I am giving this one 3.5 out of 5 stars. I am enjoying the series as a whole but there were some parts of the book that were a little long and and not as intense. This book starts off where The Crooked Staircase left off. There is a lot going on in this book and jumping back and forth between different characters and places. I don’t think we get to see as much of Jane Hawk in this book as the others. The parts with the evil Arcadians seem to ta...

    *A copy of this novel was received through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*This was an excellent installment in the Jane Hawk series. It picks up right where the previous book left off, with Jane racing against the clock, fighting the evil that threatens to annihilate everything she loves. There are wonderfully good characters in this story and wonderfully bad ones. We get to see a lot more of the bad ones in this portion of the story...

    While I love Jane Hawk, the last book in this series only got 3 stars from me. I felt a little like Koontz had spent a large portion of the book teasing something that never panned out for the reader.Well, I’m happy to say that with The Forbidden Door, Koontz is back on track and Jane is Butt-Kickingly Fabulous!Our story line is tight, tense, and INTENSE. I was on tenterhooks, so concerned about my favorite characters! And Koontz does the reade...

    The Jane Hawk series finally hits its stride with its fourth entry, The Forbidden Room.The Techno Arcadians are upping their game by accusing Jane on a 60 Minutes-style show of murdering her beloved husband Matt and faking his suicide. The Arcadians set in motion a plan to kidnap or kill everyone dear to Jane. Ancel and Clare Hawk, Jane’s in-laws, must flee their farm. Jane and Matt’s five-year-old son, Travis, must flee across the desert. Ev...

    If you like detailed descriptions of weapons, tactics, and specialized soldiers… If you like multiple points of view: the protagonist, the deadly terrorists, and the innocents… If you like fast-paced action, a likable hero, and the takedown of government infiltration… This series is for you.For my full review: https://paulspicks.blog/2018/08/29/th...For all my reviews: https://paulspicks.blog

    Predictable. Koontz can't write a clunker, but its time to bring this series to a close.

    Review: THE FORBIDDEN DOOR by Dean Koontz(Jane Hawk #4)THE FORBIDDEN DOOR is the fourth in Dean Koontz's Jane Hawk Series, and is absolutely the BEST yet. Heartwrenching, scary, tension ratcheted to the max--THE FORBIDDEN DOOR has it all and Dean Koontz delivers! I stayed on the metaphorical edge of my seat from first page to last, alternately shouting "Oh no!" And "Right on" (mentally). Mr. Koontz goes over-the-wall in this novel, and on a reali...

    In the third Jane Hawk novel I wasn't sure how the tension could get higher, but Dean Koontz made it happen. In The Forbidden Door, the stakes became more personal and the Arcadians got bolder. I was on the edge of my seat, wondering how Jane was going to get out of this one. It seemed impossible.In the previous books we stopped following a couple characters I found interesting. I was a little sour not knowing what happened with them. But, in The...

    I received a free ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review.Dean Koontz certainly can write. His tale of FBI agent Jane Hawk is now continued in the fourth book of the series, The Forbidden Door. This book, however, has Jane more in the background as her morally vacuous pursuers are the major presence. What's amazing here is that readers see the pervasive evil of the non-injected who are in the employ of the Arcadians. Their sociopath...

    This being the fourth book in the series, I read it with high anticipation of Jane and Travis being reunited. There is SOOOO much I want to say about that, but I do not want to spoil it for anyone who is an avid reader of the Dean Koontz Jane Hawk series. One thing I can say is that I love the new character introduced...Cornell. He is a very lovable and strange character who I think, from the way the book ended, almost has to be recurring. I reca...

    Having read the first 3 books in the Jane Hawk series, I discerned a very troubling, seemingly hopeless viewpoint from the narrator, one that I have not read in other Dean Koontz novels. Evil was having its day and then some, and there seemed to be no hope, no justice for the heroine and her compatriots. She kept striving to save her son and avenge her husband’s death, while the carnage piled higher and higher with each chapter, with the cruele...

    Our favorite Rogue FBI agent is back in the fourth installment of the Jane Hawk series. Jane has been very busy and successful collecting the evidence she needs to expose the Techno Arcadians and the nanotechnology they use to control the minds of people they deem to be a threat to the ultimate “utopia” they are striving to achieve. Beyond all odds, she has managed to stay a step ahead in this game of cat and mouse until the unthinkable happe...

    If Koontz existed in a previous life, he must have been a watch maker, for that is the meticulous care and painstaking precision with which his current work is crafted. Due to his mastery of the written word, rather than dispel a reader’s interest, as may be the case in the hands of any other writer, these details infuse the reader with vivid imagery that brings the story alive. One of his trademarks is crafting several storylines simultaneousl...
