I've actually read the sequel to this book, Fear Nothing, and really enjoyed it. So naturally this was recommended to me. Not that my TBR pile needs any new additions...

Saw this at The Book Thing and practically forced it on melydia!

This is one of my favorite books of Koontz, and certainly starring my favorite Koontz characters. This book follows Fear Nothing which is my number 1 favorite Koontz story :-)

Chris Snow is a fantastic, deep character. In this continuing story, the mystery of what is happening in Moonlight Bay continues. It's got everything from time travel to adventure to kidnappings to the strong, true friendship we've come to expect from the gang. I was on the edge of my seat several times during this book!

This is the second Chris Snow book, after Fear Nothing, and the character has finally found his own voice. One of my complaints in the previous novel was Chris's lack of a personality: he acted differently depending on who he was talking to. This time, however, he's far more consistent, as are the other characters. Unfortunately, the plot surrounding him is far weaker. Koontz can't decide what to use as the Big Bad, so he throws in a little bit of everything: sociopathic serial killer, genetic engineering, time travel, evil government/military types, etc. It gets a little silly after a while. Chris's XP (a genetic disorder which means he can't handle UV light) is almost forgotten for most of the story, which is a little strange considering how many times there are talks about fluorescent lights blinking on and, more importantly, the infrared goggles. Perhaps Koontz doesn't know this, but IR goggles require a digital screen, meaning that Chris basically put a small computer monitor against his eyeballs which are supposedly so sensitive he can't sit too close to a television. But oh well, that's certainly the least of the inconsistencies in these books. Chris Snow is a great character, as are his buddies (Sasha, Bobby, Roosevelt, Doogie, Orson); I just wish they'd been given a better plot to play in.

I picked this up at the BC in DC meetup today. I'm setting it aside to send in a box of books to elle311, who just started an OBCZ at her sister's practice.

Squeee!!! Received a huge box of great titles from the very generous KateKintail ;) This book will be going to the OBCZ at my sister's practice and I know she will be impressed by the thoughtfulness of fellow BCer's. Thank you very much KateKintail, I really appreciate it!
