Publisher's 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.

Great story

This book was exciting and fun all the way through. The narrator was great and really made it fun.

Love the book hate the narrator

I purchase this audio book to replace my original CD in hopes of listening to it over and over but I do not feel that I can because you replace the narrator that sucks.

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!

just ok

I've read or listen to a lot of Dean Koontz's books, and have enjoyed most of them greatly.
This book wasn't nearly as good, the story, characters and narrator were just ok, not bad, just ok.

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.

I'm upset!

I love Dean Koontz he's my favorite author, but this...this was absolutely horrible. The narrator was ok but the story was extremely confusing and just awful.

Disappointing

Too wordy when should have gotten to the point and story just wasn't what I'd grown to expect from Koonz. Readers voice almost monotone and not bringing you into the story. It was a struggle to get to the end. Sorry about that Koonz.

this book needed a word limit

the author spent so much time giving minute detail and trying to be clever that I found myself not listening. I often reached for the fast forward button in Hope's of getting to a point. I finished the book and can't for the life of me figure out why.

Horrible narration

I'll be honest, I didn't get all the way through this one. I've read it in the past and I know it's an enjoyable story, but the narration is horrible. John Glouchevitch reads this book with such a breathy and monotone voice that I just couldn't get into the story. That can't be his natural speaking voice, can it? Disappointing when a good book is ruined by a bad narrator.
