Warning This is an independent addition to Ashley Bell, meant to enhance your experience of the original book. If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. INTRODUCTION Ashley Bell, by Dean Koontz, is the tale of a vibrant and intriguing young woman who escapes death so that she can save the life of another young girl named Ashley Bell. Readers will find themselves quickly immersed in this engaging and exciting tale, wondering what is around each new turn of the plot. Koontz's tale unfolds through events that take place in both the present and the past, straddling the sometimes blurred lines between dreams and reality, exploring the ways the two intersect. SETTINGS The events of Ashley Bell take place primarily in Newport Beach, California, and its surrounding areas. The majority of the novel's events take place in the present (or very recent past); while others take place at various points in Bibi Blair's childhood. The author indicates the shift between present and past at the start of each pertinent chapter so the reader can easily keep track of time and events. There is no mention of specific dates or years in the chronology other than a passing reference to "a March day" or other such vague suggestions. STORY PLOT ANALYSIS Ashley Bell follows multiple narrative strands through the course of the novel. The primary story line is that of Bibi Blair from just before her cancer diagnosis until the end of the story. Most of the events in Bibi's story line occur in the present, but some shifts to events in her childhood do occur throughout. These shifts usually serve to provide background and explanation for events in the present timeline and are indicated in the chapter headings. A second strand - and a much less thorough one -follows Bibi's fiance, Paxton Thorpe, as he executes a mission as a U.S. Navy seal. Paxton's storyline ultimately integrates with Bibi's and the two strands remain joined for the rest of the novel. The story of Bibi's parents' past is briefly explored in some detail, but more as background information rather than a true separate narrative strand.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Following Last Light comes Final Hour, the second of two standalone eBook original novellas leading in to Ashley Bell, the highly anticipated new novel of suspense from Dean Koontz! Just by touching others, Makani Hisoka-O’Brien can see the darkest secrets they keep. The troubling talent has made the Southern California surfer wary of casual contact. But while impulsively saving a stranger from an accident, she experiences her most disturbing vision. With only a good friend to help her, and mere traces of information to guide her, Makani must track down two mysterious women—one of them innocent, one not. But Makani is stepping into the path of an adversary more dangerous than she can imagine: a brutal predator behind a pretty face, who won’t go down without drawing blood. Acclaim for Dean Koontz “Dean Koontz is a prose stylist whose lyricism heightens malevolence and tension. [He creates] characters of unusual richness and depth . . . with a level of perception and sensitivity that is not merely convincing; it’s astonishing.”—The Seattle Times “Demanding much of itself, Koontz’s style bleaches out clichés while showing a genius for details. He leaves his competitors buried in the dust.”—Kirkus Reviews “A rarity among bestselling writers, Koontz continues to pursue new ways of telling stories, never content with repeating himself.”—Chicago Sun-Times “Tumbling, hallucinogenic prose. ‘Serious’ writers . . . might do well to examine his technique.”—The New York Times Book Review “[Koontz] has always had near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match.”—Los Angeles Times “Koontz is a superb plotter and wordsmith. He chronicles the hopes and fears of our time in broad strokes and fine detail, using popular fiction to explore the human condition.”—USA Today “Characters and the search for meaning, exquisitely crafted, are the soul of [Koontz’s] work. . . . One of the master storytellers of this or any age.”—The Tampa Tribune “A literary juggler.”—The Times (London)

"Ashley Ream has an absolutely astounding voice—she is one of the most compelling, sharpest writers working today. The 100 Year Miracle is already one of my favorite novels of 2016." —Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl Once a century, for only six days, the bay around a small Washington island glows like a water-bound aurora. Dr. Rachel Bell, a scientist studying the 100-Year Miracle and the tiny sea creatures that create it, knows a secret about the phenomenon that inspired the region’s myths and folklore: the rare green water may contain a power that could save Rachel's own life (and change the world). When Rachel connects with Harry and Tilda, a divorced couple cohabiting once again as Harry enters the last stages of a debilitating disease, Harry is pulled into Rachel's obsession and hope as they both grasp at this once-in-a-lifetime chance to save themselves. But the Miracle does things to people. Strange and mysterious things. And as these things begin to happen, Rachel has only six days to uncover and control the Miracle's secrets before the waters go dark for another hundred years.

A dazzling new series, a pure adrenaline rush, debuts with Jane Hawk, a remarkable heroine certain to become an icon of suspense “I very much need to be dead.” These are the chilling words left behind by a man who had everything to live for—but took his own life. In the aftermath, his widow, Jane Hawk, does what all her grief, fear, and fury demand: find the truth, no matter what. People of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have been committing suicide in surprising numbers. When Jane seeks to learn why, she becomes the most-wanted fugitive in America. Her powerful enemies are protecting a secret so important—so terrifying—that they will exterminate anyone in their way. But all their power and viciousness may not be enough to stop a woman as clever as they are cold-blooded, as relentless as they are ruthless—and who is driven by a righteous rage they can never comprehend. Because it is born of love. Jane Hawk’s story continues in The Whispering Room. Advance praise for The Silent Corner “A proven specialist in action scenes, Koontz pulls off some doozies here. . . . The book is full of neat touches . . . and the prose, as always in a Koontz novel, is first-rate. Perhaps Koontz’s leanest, meanest thriller, this initial entry in a new series introduces a smart, appealing heroine who can outthink as well as outshoot the baddest of bad dudes.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “This gripping thriller grabs readers from the first few pages and sweeps them along to the rousing finale.”—Booklist Acclaim for Dean Koontz “Koontz is a master of the edge-of-your-seat, paranoid thriller—and perhaps the leading American practitioner of the form.”—The Star-Ledger “Koontz writes first-rate suspense, scary and stylish.”—Los Angeles Times “There is no one who can match Dean Koontz for pure excitement when writing highly charged thrillers. . . . [He] writes thrillers that move so fast they make every other thriller writer seem to be standing still.”—The Denver Post “Dean Koontz almost occupies a genre of his own. He is a master at building suspense and holding the reader spellbound.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch “Koontz is one of the great suspense authors. . . . There’s no bestselling author of popular fiction . . . whose sentences offer more musicality. [His] characters are memorable and his unique mix of suspense and humor absorbing. . . . Great kudos to Koontz for creating, within the strictures of popular fiction . . . [a] notable novel of ideas and of moral imperatives.”—Publishers Weekly “There are few authors who can match [Koontz] for sheer page-turning power. His plots are compelling and unpredictable, the characters engaging, and the wording as sleek and on-target as a guided missile. Anything can happen.”—Toledo Blade

A 2015 Newbery Honor Book Going to school and making new friends can be tough. But going to school and making new friends while wearing a bulky hearing aid strapped to your chest? That requires superpowers! In this funny, poignant graphic novel memoir, author/illustrator Cece Bell chronicles her hearing loss at a young age and her subsequent experiences with the Phonic Ear, a very powerful—and very awkward—hearing aid. The Phonic Ear gives Cece the ability to hear—sometimes things she shouldn’t—but also isolates her from her classmates. She really just wants to fit in and find a true friend, someone who appreciates her as she is. After some trouble, she is finally able to harness the power of the Phonic Ear and become “El Deafo, Listener for All.” And more importantly, declare a place for herself in the world and find the friend she’s longed for. PRAISE FOR EL DEAFO STARRED REVIEWS "A standout autobiography. Someone readers will enjoy getting to know." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Worthy of a superhero." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review "This empowering autobiographical story belongs right next to Raina Telgemeier’s Smile (2011) and Liz Prince’s Tomboy." --Booklist
