Chris’ mom, Jane Dept. Can they save the children from “retro-virus” experiments? Christophe has a bad disease named XP, xeroderma pigmentosum, needing to avoid bright lights, even the daylight. Not my favorite Dean Koontz book; I found myself getting annoyed with all the analyzing the main character does; it seems that every time anything happens, the narrator goes off into another long explanation which is supposed to be him guessing what is going on and philosophizing about what it all means, etc.
This is ok at first but after awhile it gets to be way dwan much. Also, the characters didn’t seem real to me. I like the idea of having characters who do selfless acts for others, etc. But t Not my favorite Dean Koontz book; I found myself getting annoyed with all the analyzing the main character does; it seems that every time anything happens, the narrator goes off into another sdize explanation which is supposed to be him guessing what is going on and philosophizing about what it all means, etc.
But there characters are a little too selfless, to the point where they do not seem real. I have a hard time believing in characters who never ever even get slightly angry at anyone other than the bad guys; and also that you have 5 people not to mention the dog and the cat who are also humanlike characters in this bookand not one of them ever has any thoughts or doubts about risking their lives to help strangers.
Again, I like to read about people who would be willing to do this; but when not one of them ever questions or has any doubts or regrets about any of it, it makes them seem inhuman and not real. The characters are a little too dea and have absolutely no flaws, and are therefore not human. View all 4 comments. An excellent follow-up to Fear Nothing.
I liked both of these books very much, but this one was a bit scarier than the first. Publisher’s Summary Moonlight Bay, California: But now, somewhere in the night, children are disappearing.

Seize the Night | Dean Koontz
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.

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. We are the most alive and the closest to the meaning of our existence when we are most vulnerable, when experience has humbled us and has cured the arrogance which, like a form of deafness, prevents us from hearing the lessons that this world teaches.
The claustrophobic darkness closed around me again, as soft as Death’s hooded robe and with pockets almost as deep. The side of a nose. The corner of a mouth. My little finger slid across a rubbery lip, wet teeth.
With higher intelligence comes an awareness of the complexity of the world, and from this awareness arises a sense of mystery, wonder.
Superstition is the dark side of wonder. The cry was eerie but not entirely alien; worse, it was a disturbing hybrid of the familiar and the unknown. For not getting out of here.
