This is not a secret – I am not fond of horror. But having read Fear Nothing and Seize the Night I knew I had to try something else of Koontz’s work. This is regular supernatural horror. The first few chapters caught my interest, but then the writing fell off. This is average to mediocre horror. It does not grip like Fear Nothing and is fairly predictable. If I had read this first, I would not have bothered with any more by Dean Koontz. I’m glad I started with something better of his.
