I just reread this, and it is one of Koontz best books. He does an amazing job on the characters of children, a disabled girl in this book is especially vivid in detail. I like the storyline, and bioethics is a reality that many do not understand are being lauded in academia, and medical schools. No cripple or person over 60 is deemed of any use to society by bioethics/utilitarian standards. Koontz does a wonderful job of explaining in detail in all his books. He got a lot of letters from the bioethics crowd for his blunt blasting of their philosophy.

This was one of the first Dean Koontz books I read while in college or just after. I loved it then and I loved rereading it recently, nearly 10 years later. The story is fresh, unique, interesting, and a page-turner for sure.

I'm not fond of fantasy, but I found the dialogue exceptional
and worth the read
