When he sets out to find the missing five-year-old son of a former sweetheart, Christopher Snow believes that the lost children are still alive. He is convinced the disappearances have everything to do with the catastrophic effects of secret research conducted deep within Fort Wyvern. To keep those secrets, extremely violent and powerful forces are willing to conceal even the most heinous crimes.
Never before in Dean Koontz's phenomenal writing career has he created a character quite like Christopher Snow: a creation so complex, so fascinating that the author has felt compelled to return to him. Fans of Fear Nothing already know why. Those who meet him for the first time in Seize the Night will soon join millions of others whose imaginations have been touched by this unique character and the extraordinary, eerie world of Moonlight Bay.

"No best-selling suspense novelist creates magnetic characters as consistently as Koontz does....This novel stands as vintage Koontz, a rousing crowd-pleaser that recapitulates some of his recurrent themes." (Publishers Weekly)
Reading this book might have made it fall short of some of Koontz' work, but the narrative was brought chillingly to life by Keith Szarabajka. I found it to be chillingly addictive and thoroughly entertaining...full of the chuckles, surprises, empathetic tears and goosebumps that I had expected when I purchased it.
This is the second in the Moonlight Bay series, and I was thrilled when I saw it after having finished Fear Nothing. The same narrator narrates both and I cannot imagine another voice doing Christopher Snow. It took me a chapter or two in Fear Nothing to warm up to him, but now he IS Christopher Snow. This book picks up quite quickly where Fear Nothing left off and expands upon the original mysteries and general weirdness. Again, all of the typical Koontz elements are present: underdog hero, great canine best friend, sarcastic best friend, sassy, strong-willed girlfriend and adorable kids. Also typical to Koontz, there are times when the page drags a bit and he's a little more descriptive than he really needs to be, but I always forgive him as soon as the action picks up and it almost always does. I enjoyed both of the books in this series!
Strange bizarre happenings.
Plot not only kept me on the edge of my seat, I found myself sitting in my car listening after I read my destinations.
I so enjoyed Keith Szarabajka narration...I loved the dialog between the two main characters and the accents Keith used.
Yes and I have listened to it about 15 times allready on tape but the tapes got wore out. I just wish they would do a third book to this story to tell what happened after the ship showed up off shore and how far along the mutations go as well.
Other than Fear Nothing i would say By the Light of the Moon. Seems to have the same element of suspense and you cant really tell what the end is untill it happens even though by the time you get there you have about a dozen ideas that he has planted into your head along the way.
He has done a superb job with this one.
No just has allways kept me interested right to the very end no matter how many times i read or listen to it.
Very very good work.
Great story, well dramatized by Keith Szarabajka!
He did such a great job with pace and changing of voices - overall just well delivered.
I have been impressed by Koontz's grasp of human psychology. He is not afraid to look into and invite us to look into the human mind. From slightly crass humor to deeply touching insights - Koontz covers the whole gamut.
Not really. The first novel in this two part series was absolutely phenomenal, one of the best works of literature I've ever read. Not just a "horror story" or a "mystery", but truly great literature, up there with the very best of Stephen King (i.e. Hearts in Atlantis) or even older greats like Fitzgerald. This book, however, is just a typical crappy kinda-horror story.
It should have lived up to the first story or never been written.
Wasn't really a great scene.
Not a chance. Even reading it was a mistake. Kind of the literary equivalent of Highlander 2, or the Matrix sequels, or the Star Wars Prequels: A work so bad it damages the enjoyment of the earlier works.
Rumor has it that Dean wasn't happy with this novel either, and that he's waiting to finish it with a third when he can really do it justice. I hope so!
Maybe in the future. It was a really good book.
I loved the time travel aspect. I was wondering what would happen next at every turn.
He didn't talk too low, I hate having to turn the volume up really loud to hear the narrator over road noise.
I found myself sitting in my garage not wanting to get out of my truck after my commute.
The plot was not jaw-dropping, but the writing was what I always expect, and get, from Mr. Koontz.
The story line was fine, but the writing brings the reader into the extra-ordinary world of the characters, defining the world of the paranormal in the readers mind like Koontz and a few others do so well. Good read.
Keith Szarabajka " voice on "Christopher Snow" Character .was spot on.
The Atmosphere and uncertainty was crafted so good , i felt as if i was on a Journey with "Christopher Snow" and all the elements that came his way i felt it .
The Monkey Scene , cause "Mr Snow" Character shows sympathy for them in a way and their unfortunate faith .
at the very end , but am not gonna spoil it .
Dean Koontz" created such an interesting "Character" Christopher Snow is one of the Koontz best .
I would absolutely recommend this book. It's a wonderful tale. Koontz brings you into a world that could be, and sends you through the mind and heart of a true hero.
I wouldn't say on the edge of my seat, but it most certainly kept my interest. My concern for the characters felt real. I found myself in my truck, telling the characters to watch out.
His tone of voice really fits the character. At least my vision of him. He's very low key with a big heart, and Keith brings it out for you to identify with Chris.
Yes, definitely. Rarely do I wish my commute were longer, but, this was one of those times.
I love the Easter Eggs. I read the Odd Thomas series before this, and now I'm waiting for Oddy and Chris to meet.
