What a great book! Almost half way into the book when you find out the major twist, and it doesn't disappoint. Trying to write a review without spoiling the book is difficult..
I have never reviewed an audio book before on audible.com and regrettably I am driven to do so after listening to the first half of this book. I have purchased several audio books previously and enjoyed them all. Some of the books have been astounding and some I would describe as ‘good enough’ to listen to as I commute or work at home. This is the first book I have never finished, turning it off on occasions
I regrettably returned to listen to the book twice in the hope there would be some payoff to the proceeding narrative. Eventually I simply gave up. Although I entered this genre knowing that there will be some clichéd generalisations reading a book embedded in either the horror/ science fiction/ fantasy genres, I was truly disappointed with the development of the characters in this book
I thought the story showed great promise and I was interested in the initial characters. At first the style of writing did enough to keep me guessing in regards to what could happen next - even when at times it felt as though I was reading a Mills & Boon novel. However, the further I listened the more painful the story and characters become
I chose the book based on the 2 for 1 promotion and the 4 and 5 star reviews it received on the audible webpage. No disrespect intended to previous reviewers… we simply have different taste. I am now moving on to the other book I purchased, hopefully my next audiobook will be more enjoyable.

This story was so enjoyable. Laura was the person you want to be without having to go through her struggles. The reading was very well done. Truly enjoyed!
This is probably my favorite koontz book. The story was good from the beginning. It's somewhat fast paced. Narrator wasn't great but was good for sure.
Story, characters, suspense.
It moves well. Bad things happen to good people. Good people happen to bad guys. Koontz at his finest. As usual, with a twist of the miraculous or sci-fi.
Yes. Have listened to it a couple times too.
This is Koontz, the way you want him to write.
Well written, edge of your seat, classic Koontz - not too gory, female characters can hold their own, perfect for an audible story. Good narrrator
