Summary: "They are stronger, heal better, and think faster than any humans ever created -- and they must be destroyed. ut not even Victor Helios -- once Frankenstein -- can stop the engineered killers he's set loose on a reign of terror through modern-day New Orleans. Now the only hope rests in a one-time "monster" and his all-too-human partners, Detective Carson O'Connor and Michael Madison. Deucalion's centuries-old history began as Victor's first and failed attempt to build the perfect human -- and it is fated to end in the ultimate confrontation between a damned creature and his mad creator. But first Deucalion must destroy a monstrosity not even Victor's malignant mind could have imagined -- an indestructible entitu that steps out of humankind's collective nightmare with one purpose: to replace us." ~Jacket copy

Thoughts: I'm not sure what I can say about this book. I enjoyed the first one, and I think that this is a good sequel. Both books are extremely entertaining and engaging. Thinking back, I wish I had read this book right after the first. I was still able to get my feet under me, but they need to be read back-to-back -- they have a different feel. These books are fairly easy to get through. Since they are engaging, the pages will fly by.
