First of all, I am not a huge Dean Koontz fan. I enjoy the genre and I like similar authors such as Stephen King, but I’ve never been able to really get into Koontz. His ideas are usually quite good but his writing style has never fully enthralled me.
That being said, I actually enjoyed this book. Released in 1999, it’s not one of his newest books but I believe it’s one of his better books.
I won’t go too much into detail about the plot, in case you haven’t read it
yet, but I’ll give a brief synopsis. Basically, children are disappearing. The main character, Christopher Snow, is a sufferer of XP (a skin condition that makes him highly susceptible to light) and therefore he lives his life in the dark. He takes it upon himself to find the missing children, along with the help of a few friends. There is also an ex-military base with a rather creepy reputation and an eerie atmosphere. The rest you can discover yourself by reading the book!
The plot is fairly good, although ...
