Koontz's current best-seller relates the story of two Southern California police detectives who track down a demonic serial killer with paranormal abilities. The work is well-suited to audio, and fans of Koontz should enjoy this exceptional production. Jay O. Sanders is simply superb. All characters (even Woofer, a dog who plays an important role) are fully voiced. One of the characterizations--the golem--is so strikingly different from Sanders's "normal" voice that it's difficult at first to recognize that it's still Sanders speaking. This is a long production, but the pace never flags, and Sanders is consistently excellent.

Unabridged Edition - 8 cassettes - 13 hours play timeRead by: Jay O. SandersCan Koontz write a bad novel? He can write some not as good as some of his others, but never a BAD one.This particular Koontz audio sorta reminded me of other Koontz books. In this one, he has a good story idea, that of having a 20 year old with supernatural powers trying to rid the world of people he himself, felt didn't belong. Sorta sounds like SUPERMAN! I think Koontz did an outstanding job in making the apparitions scary enough, without getting too morbid. I liked the narrative by a DOG especially well. I'm a dog lover, and if my dog could think and talk, this is what I imagine him to be able to do. It's hard to guess what is causing the terrifying beasts to appear, or to determine who is behind their appearance. Maybe you can guess! This isn't my favorite Koontz novel, but it "listen-worthy".I think you'll enjoy it - it's long enough to take you through a whole week of commuting!Wiley Coyote

This was my first Koontz book. I like Stephen King and my friend recommended this author. I'm so glad because he's really good.

It was a slow read in a lot of places but it was good and cute and funny also.
It has nothing to do with dragons but it has a lot to say about fairy tales and the creatures in them. It was a very good book even if slow in places.

Interesting read by Koontz

I loved this book. The story was very true to the author's style without being too closely modeled after his other works. I felt I had a good understanding of the characters. I hated the villain, I felt bad for the victims (but not so much that I felt like I couldn't relate to them) and I was pulling for the heroes all the way. I spent at least one sleepless night reading this book. Very suspenseful and a good read but not so scary that you'll be looking around the corner for Ticktock

I really enjoyed this book. I loved the "eyeview" of the dog character.
