BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Dean Koontz's What the Night Knows . #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz delivers a thrilling novel of suspense and adventure, as the lives of strangers converge around a mystery unfolding high in the Colorado mountains--and the balance of the world begins to tilt.... In the stillness of a golden September afternoon, deep in the wilderness of the Rockies, a solitary craftsman, Grady Adams, and his magnificent Irish wolfhound Merlin step from shadow into light...and into an encounter with enchantment. That night, through the trees, under the moon, a pair of singular animals will watch Grady's isolated home, waiting to make their approach. A few miles away, Camillia Rivers, a local veterinarian, begins to unravel the threads of a puzzle that will bring all the forces of a government in peril to her door. At a nearby farm, long-estranged identical twins come together to begin a descent into darkness...In Las Vegas, a specialist in chaos theory probes the boundaries of the unknowable...On a Seattle golf course, two men make matter-of-fact arrangements for murder...Along a highway by the sea, a vagrant scarred by the past begins a trek toward his destiny... In a novel that is at once wholly of our time and timeless, fearless and funny, Dean Koontz takes readers into the moment between one turn of the world and the next, across the border between knowing and mystery. It is a journey that will leave all who take it Breathless .

I've read many of Dean Koontz's books and have liked them. Unfortunately, this isn't one of his best.

I love Dean Koontz - usually I have to have a dictionary handy to look up some of the words he uses, but that's one of the benefits of reading. This novel was very enjoyable, a story of wonder and hope that some how, some way, something will come and save us from ourselves.

Not sure where Koontz was going with this 'new-species-arriving-out-of-thin-air' thing. I found it to be a long winded burble about the loss of innocence, trying to recapture Eden, blah, blah, blah. Started out OK but then wandered off into Rainbows-and-Unicorns country. Wasn't my cup of tea but may be yours.

I like his books, and found this one interesting and, as usual, unique. It was a little slower than his usual suspense thrillers, but a good read.

Not one of his best, the bad guy seemed too far out there to be believable.

While all his books read like they are written to become a movie, this plot is good, with animal innocence and a world you wish would happen.

not one of his best... it seemed a bit slow and honestly some of the characters added absolutely NOTHING to the story... I was a little disappointed

VERY Slow. Not one of my favorites, and I'm usually a big Dean Koontz fan. I really wouldn't recommend this book. It seemed to drag and the climax (in my opinion) happened in the last 10 or so pages.
