Something strange is happening in Moonlight Bay. Something unleashed by the now closed military base. Something that makes the animals not quite animals. Something that makes the human not quite human.
If you like Koontz, You'll probably like this book.
This is my all-time favorite book! Dean Koontz is a master storyteller. The only drawback was I missed the characters (especially Orson) at the end and it was hard to get over to find another book that could compare. If you like scary books, this is an excellent read-if you like a riveting story, this is an excellent read! If you are a dog-lover, you'll be especially pleased:)
Dean Koontz has interesting charachters, and like Odd Thomas, the protagonist Christopher Snow has an interesting voice and an even more interesting life. What starts off seeming to be a murder mystery quickly develops levels of revelations that are frightening and fantastical. I enjoyed this book as the reader is with Chris (and Orson his dog) without those glimpses into the mind/minds of those opposing him. This is a charachter I'd like to read about again, and I am betting you will too.
This is the first book about Christopher Snow. Then, you need to read Seize the Night. This was a great book!
I've read the other reviews about this book, and it seems that everyone so far has enjoyed this book and its sequel. Unfortunately, I couldn't get into this book. It seemed to drag on. In one early chapter the main character was being chased (in a chapter that just wouldn't end soon enough for me), and it was very reminiscent of a similar scene in Koontz's Odd Thomas books (I read the first 2 so far and have enjoyed them). Having liked the Odd Thomas books, I couldn't get over a very similar voice between the main character of those books and the main character in this book. Perhaps I am the "odd one" here, but I just did not get into this book.
