In this chilling tale, Koontz seamlessly combines our most primitive boogeyman-type fears with the more modern fear of what unlimited technology wielded without ethics can bring. I can't give it enough stars.

A good but not great Koontz novel. A little bit over the top with monsters that evolve in too many ways. The general premise goes a little too far behind the reader's willingness to disbelieve. But no problem turning the pages.

3 stars out of 5.

Library Journal
Four people are the last hope of Moonlight Cove, because one by one the rest of the citizens are changinginto boogymen, werewolves, mythical creatures, or something entirely new. They are the New People, willing victims of a seductive experiment in chemically induced evolution. They can transform their bodies at will and eliminate unproductive emotions, like grief and compassion. In fact, the only instinct left to the New People is self-preservation, and their only emotion is fear.

I much prefer Koontz' suspense novels to his horror and this one leans more to horror, not as much to my taste; still with Koontz it's ALL good.

Classic Koontz!

This is one of Koontz's earlier bestsellers and is more of a straight-up horror novel than his current offerings but it's a great classic evil-corporation turning nice townspeople into flesh eating monsters tale that I enjoyed re-visiting very much.

Great book! I'm only getting rid of my books because of a need for space since moving to my new apartment. Unfortunately, I have to part w/ some of my books. I hope if you order it, you enjoy it.

From Amazon:
The citizens of Moonlight Cove, California, are changing. Some are losing touch with their deepest emotions. Others are surrendering to their wildest urges. And the few who remain unchanged are absolutely terrified--if not brutally murdered in the dead of night...
