Summary

This exclusive audiobook short story looks back - way back - to where it all began for Odd Thomas and Stormy Llewellyn, two souls who are destined to be together forever.

Amid the dizzying rides, tantalizing games of chance, and fanciful attractions of a state fair, two teenage sweethearts on the cusp of life and love's pleasures find their way to a shadowy carnival tent brimming with curiosities. There, from the bizarre and enthralling Gypsy Mummy, a mechanized merchant of dreams and prognosticator of tomorrows, the young couple learns what fate promises for them. But fate, for Odd Thomas and Stormy Llewellyn, is something altogether different: full of dark corners, sharp edges, and things no seer or soothsayer could ever anticipate.

And for Odd Thomas, a gallant fry cook from a sleepy California desert town, the future beckons - to listen to unquiet spirits, pursue unsettling mysteries, and learn shocking truths...for a purpose far greater than himself.

Not a book but a chapter

I've read all the other Odd Thomas books and really enjoyed them. I should have been more careful in ordering this thinking it was a new edition.

Short story, boo don't buy. Ripoff

This book was 5 chapters and a complete waste of money. Don't waste your time.

I gave the story 4 because it's to short.

I really enjoyed the story. the odd series is one of my all time favorite's​. I had not heard this one yet. I definitely can tell that the story was a preview of the series. I know that is why it's so short. I still wish that it was longer. I also like the moonlight bay series. also a series that I wish was longer! thank you Mr. Koontz! ps.. please bring back the moonlight bay series! also make this series longer!!.

it was good but short,$13 for one hour is crazy

after reading all the Odd Thomas books I found this interesting but way too short very disappointing to pay $13 for a book that's less than an hour long

Wayyy to short

This was a really disapointing purchase. The story cute, but certainly NOT what I had expected from a Dean Koontz book!
