This was my very first Dean Koontz book and I obviously chose a great one. This book was very suspenseful and had me scared for the main characters 90% of the time. There's not a lot that I can say without giving away the plot but it's a great read if you like suspense with a splash of syfi. Don't go into this thinking that it's a romance type book because it's really not. I would say only about 5-10% is romance and the rest is suspenseful craziness. There's also a few instances of pedophilia if that is triggering to anyone.
