Summary

If you’re different enough, the night is not your enemy, the darkness is not intimidating, the shadows are not terrifying. You fear nothing.

Christopher Snow is different from all the other residents of Moonlight Bay, different from anyone you’ve ever met. For Christopher Snow has made his peace with a very rare genetic disorder that leaves him dangerously vulnerable to light. His life is filled with the fascinating rituals of one who must embrace the dark. He knows the night as no one else can - its mystery, its beauty, its terrors, and the eerie silken rhythms that seduce one into believing anything - even freedom - is possible.

Until the night Christopher Snow witnesses a series of disturbing incidents that sweep him into a violent mystery only he can solve, a mystery that will force him to rise above all fears and confront the many-layered secrets of Moonlight Bay and its strange inhabitants. A place, like all places, that looks a lot different after dark.

Awful

I have read a few of Dean Koontz’s books and have enjoyed them very much, this on the other hand was awful, farcical from the beginning, just simply sped from one ridiculous thing to something even more ridiculous, and the bazaar narration was just irritating

Story took a long time in telling.

The actual story seemed to take a long time in telling Too much atmospheric descriptions and unnecessary detail.
My least enjoyable DK book which I struggled to finish.

Fantastic first story in the (almost) trilogy

I absolutely love the Chris Snow books and the audiobook doesn't disappoint.

This book was written before Koontz lost his way, forgot about the importance of plot and character development and got caught up in his own overly flowery language which makes his new books such a chore to read (I gave up on him after One Door Away From Heaven).

The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because it took me a while to get used to the narrator, as I had a very vivid idea in my head of how Chris would talk and he wasn't it, but that's just my personal taste.

However the narrator does a brilliant job, the story is creepy, mysterious, tense, scary and everything you want and expect from earlier Koontz. Now I'm off to listen to the sequel, Seize The Night!!!

Another great book

The narrator was great, I'm definitely looking forward to hearing the next book. The story overall was really well written. The only part I didn't like is how much the author rambled on certain descriptions.

Interesting story, awful narrator

I read the book years ago and was really looking forward to listening to it, but it feels like it's absolutely dragging with the way this narrator talks. His voice is low like he's reading a bedtime story. I usually finish about a book a week on Audible. I've been struggling for at least 3, listening til I get too irritated by the reader and have to turn it off. He speaks low and slow and emphasizes in the weirdest way. Why can't he just read in a way that people actually speak and think. I want to finish the Audio book but I'm really struggling.

Horrible narration

I was so disappointed with this audio book. Normally a LOVE listening to Dean Koontz books, but the narrator killed it for me. I could not concentrate on the story because his breathy whisper type of speech was annoying and lacking in depth. I bet if they had Stephen Lang narrate this I would have been hooked immediately.

Koontz ALWAYS EVOLVING-ALWAYS ON THE CUTTING EDGE!

King (& now Joe Hill & his sibling Owen) has ALWAYS been my GO TO WRITER. KOONTZ is about to usurp that honor! To date THERE HAS NEVER BEEN a subject KOONTZ doesn't explore, develop, & make it his own! He doesn't just pique my interest, hold my attention, then draw me in; HE LITERALLY BLOWS ME OUT OF THE WATER!!! Well done!!! I love ❤️ your work😁🙏🏻MORE PLEASE!

Started out a bit dry ... but ended up interesting

This did not start out like a typical Dean Koontz book. First few chapters almost had me looking for another one. But as the story progresses it definitely got real real deep and informative like all of his books .
When you get this book stick with it it is really well worth it!

original recording was better.

Keith Zarabaikis ( not spelling that name right I am sure) recorded this audio book originally. I like his version better. don't know why it needed to be prerecorded.

Only book so far of Kootnz I don't like.

Verry long winded, any whiney. If you like overkill on detail then you may like it.
