Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``Despite some paper-thin characterizations and a predilection for the maudlin, Koontz's sense of pace and the dramatic are sure,'' observed PW. A horror story with science fiction underpinnings, this concerns an insane inventor whose bizarre experiment turns the sleepy California town of Moonlight Cove into a charnel house. (Nov.)
Library Journal
Four people are the last hope of Moonlight Cove, because one by one the rest of the citizens are changinginto boogymen, werewolves, mythical creatures, or something entirely new. They are the New People, willing victims of a seductive experiment in chemically induced evolution. They can transform their bodies at will and eliminate unproductive emotions, like grief and compassion. In fact, the only instinct left to the New People is self-preservation, and their only emotion is fear. And they want the rest of humanity to join them. Popular author Koontz ( Watchers , Lighting ) has again delivered a gripping horror thriller with well-drawn characters and plenty of suspense. Literary Guild selection. A.M.B. Amantia, Population Crisis Committee Lib., Washington, D.C.

Koontz amazes me everytime. 'Midnight' is a story about a small coastal town quickly and secretly undergoing a horrific change to it's citizens. Caught in the middle of this living nightmare are 4 intriguing and distinctive characters brought together against the odds to quite possibly save the world as we know it. Riveting chapters kept me glued to the end. Koontz proves again that he is a master storyteller, and like featured evil inventor Thomas Shaddack, Koontz has the ability to create creatures that could only be found in the worst of our dreams.

I've read about 5 Koontz books up to this point and this was by far my least favorite. I almost didn't read the entire book, but was halfway through it and decided I may as well finish it. I would not recommend this Koontz book to others.
