Publisher's Summary

They're out there....
Waiting. Watching. Unseen by normal eyes, but all too visible to Slim MacKenzie, a young man blessed - or cursed - by Twilight Eyes.

They're out there....
Lurking in the darkest shadows of an eerie, moonlit carnival. Feeding their twisted needs with human suffering - and fiendishly plotting the downfall of the human race.

They're out there....
But don't scream. They'll hear you.

Highly Entertaining

My wife and I spend countless hours on the road. Dean Koontz almost always delivers. This particular book is one of those occasions where he gets it right. There are some mature chapters in the book so younger listeners may be discouraged but I would say this is a gripping tale from his earlier days and it will keep you up while pulling and all nighter.

Odd Thomas original

If you like Mr. Koontz' Odd Thomas series, you will like this. Without doubt this book served as the authors inspiration for Odd Thomas. Certainly the Odd Thomas series has received more attention and is more popular. Nonetheless, there is no doubt this is similar.

The narrator is excellent and enjoyable. I would recommend reading this while awaiting for the next in the Odd Thomas series.

Roller Coaster Ride!

Wow what a good Book!
The books starts out interesting but a little slow. It is kind of like how the cars on a roller coaster are pulled slowly up the first big hill.

The last two thirds of the book is a total horror ride!

The story takes place on the east coast (USA) in 1963-1964. The book was first published in 1985

Love the Carnival setting

I really enjoyed listening to this Dean Koontz book.
The plot was well maintained and had a steady pace.
The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating was because the "sci-fi" aspect of the novel threw me off ground a couple times. But overall great quality novel and good narration.

another great story

This book takes you places you never thought of. Dean Koontz brings you characters that explain much of the evil in this world. But with it always the good gifted folk that can battle the evil forces. A truly good story! Keep them coming Mr. Koontz!

Great thriller,

This is more a gripping thriller than a scary horror story.

The story is about a young man with the ability to see some people in their true form as evil "goblins" in human disguise. He stalks and kills them and takes refuge with other variously gifted misfits. As the goblins begin to recognise him as a threat, he gradually learns of their evil plans for the downfall of humanity. Although hopelessly outnumbered, he must take the war to the goblins...

The plot is imaginative, well paced and in parts very tense. The characters are very convincing and I really found myself caring what happened to them. Highly recommended.

Dean Koontz needs an editor

This book is hard going. Koontz doesn't use a sentence to describe something when he can use a paragraph instead. Two out of every three sentences could be trimmed from this book and it would lose nothing in the edit. I kept finding myself wanting to yell "Okay, okay, I get the picture, get on with the story!" The premise underlying the story itself is weak and undeveloped. It's like something you'd expect from a hastily drafted Stephen King novel. This is my second and last Koontz book.

Enjoyable but not my favourite Koontz

I am an avid Koontz listener/reader but this was definitely not my favourite book. Great narration as always with his books but I struggled to keep listening.
