I didn't know when I started reading this that it was a sequel to his book "Possessions". It's pretty good, but because I read it out of sequence it was a little confusing at times. It's easy to catch up with what's going on.
Cover: People change all the time. But Chris Corin is noticing some pretty extreme changes in the people around him. His best friend is suffering from a strange fever and acting in ways that just don't make sense. And some oddly familiar people in town have started stalking Chris, threatening him, blaming him for bizarre changes they've noticed in themselves.
Things get worse when the changes become physical. Blisters start to form on people. Hideous mutations appear around town. Can these changes somehow be responsible for the violent murders that have occured - murders that point directly at Chris? Something definately wants Chris dead, something very powerful. Something beyond his imagination.
REally entertaining and a quick read. If you like King, Barker, or Koontz, you'll enjoy Moore. Make sure to read Possesions first or you may be a little confused about some of the details in this book.
This can be read alone or better if read after his first in this series (it follows along after Possessions). Horror derived from opening links to other worlds/places.
At first, I was really disappointed with this book because it turns out that it is the sequel to _Possessions_. No where on the book's cover, or inside flaps is this pivotal fact mentioned. I had to look it up online to figure out why something felt missing... And since the ending of _Possessions_ is definitively given away in this sequel, I am not really in any rush to go back and read it. Maybe someday...
That aside, I did enjoy this book quite a bit. The narration was refreshing and the characters were likable. The end also seems pretty open-ended, so I will keep an eye out for a third book in this series. There were a lot of gaps in the plot, but it didn't bother me too much, since this book was mostly all about excitement.
