Publisher's Summary

Deepest night, Montana....
An eerie light proclaims the arrival of a mysterious watcher in the woods. And one solitary man begins a desperate battle against something unknown - and unknowable.

Broad daylight, Los Angeles....
An ordinary morning erupts in cataclysmic violence. A young family is shattered in a heartbeat.

Fate will lead this family to an isolated Montana ranch, but their sanctuary will become their worst nightmare. For there they will face a chillingly ruthless enemy, from which no one - living or dead - is safe.

Critic Reviews

"[A] gripping parable about the real cost of "getting away from it all." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Christopher Lane's pace perfectly captures the acute, restless fear that eventually encompasses all the characters." ( AudioFile)

Not dean's best book

Great beginning but lacks the meat of a good story.
The end left me a little bit disappointed.

GREAT STORY

This one has aliens, dogs, fires, and winter in Montana. He must like Montana, several stories are set there. It is a good story with a few twists and turns. But then Koontz is very good at that. It's a good book, try it.

A little out there...

Although I enjoyed the listen it was a little predictable. Almost a "Scary Movie" type of book. You knew what was going to happen, you knew the charactor was going to open that door and you knew what was going to be behind it. The reader was excellent and it was a pleasure to listen. I had gotten away from Koontz for a few years now switching to a different author and decided to give him another try. It wasn't disappointing but also not one of his best. The last chapter was really unbelivable and out there. While I would tell you to listen I would also tell you that he has alot better ones to listen to.

Don't waste your time

I am a Koontz fan, and I have read over a dozen of his books...this one is just plain dumb. Go read Fear Nothing, Seize the Night, Watchers, or Lightning instead.

Mediocre

Not his best. Gets good at about chapter 18, but it's not worth slogging through the first 17 to get there. Try Tick Tock, Phantoms, or Darkfall.

Dean Koontz, Christopher Lane and a GOLDEN!

Well what more can I say than what's in the title? This book touches all the bases, it is well written and well performed. It's noce to have some consistency with an Author, and if you like one Dean Koontz story, you are probably going to like all of them. Christopher Lane is a fantastic Narrator as well.

Winter Moon - Eerie

As eerie as a campfire tale come to life in the deepest woods, but with the author's signature joviality in times of peril.

Winter Moon

Excellent book and narration. This is the second book I've listened to by Dean Koontz and narrated by Christopher Lane, the first (and probably the better) being Lightning. Lots of twists and turns as expected. I'd recommend this book to anyone.

enjoyable

Although not one of Dean Koontz' best, this story is very enjoyable and worth listening to. Christopher Lane does a good job as a narrator of keeping the atmosphere of the book.
