I hope you end up liking the story :-) I might re-read the book someday because I really liked it.

203 :-) Glad you are enjoying the story Donna. I don't read many Stephen King books - haven't read one in a while, but really loved Firestarter. I mostly read Dean Koontz and Firestarter was along the same lines as something Dean would write.

203 Duma Key is Amazing!!!! I originally rated the book 4 stars but the story stayed with me for so long after reading that I went back and upgraded it to 5 stars :-)

I agree with The Voice of the Night - I very much like it - I created a "disturbing" goodreads shelf because of that book :-)

But, like with Tara above, I'm wondering which Twilight you are referring to because I started Twilight Eyes but haven't finished it (but plan to in the near future) and I'm going to be reading The Servants of Twilight next month because it was chosen as the Group read in the Koontzland - Dean Koontz Group. I'm wondering which one you were impressed with :-)

Twilight Eyes by Dean Koontz The Servants of Twilight by Dean Koontz
Twilight Eyes features a traveling carnival and The Servants of Twilight features a cult.

:-) Are you referring to Twilight Eyes or The Servants of Twilight?

203 For me, 77 Shadow Street started out amazing but lost much of it's fizzle. I still gave the book 4 stars & liked it much better than last year's What The Night Knows. Dean Koontz is my favorite author too Tracy - good thing we are friends :-)

203 I didn't like What the Night Knows either - Good Luck Donna.
I do like the Bad Place though, Christopher :-) I've read that one 3 times.

I love Relentless. Enjoyed that fun thrill ride much more than The Husband. (but that's just me - and some other crazy Koontz fans ;-)

I'm currently reading Cold Fire for the fourth time. Christopher, if you liked Lightning, you should give Cold Fire a try. It's also our November Group Read in the Koontzland - Dean Koontz Group.

Which were the first Koontz titles you read? I really like Lightning :-)

At least you're willing to give him a try :-) Koontz may not be your thing but with all the different books he's written, you'll likely find one or one type that you like.

New Dean Koontz Book coming this December: 77 Shadow Street.

Intensity is much better than WTNK (at least in my opinion)

You are a smart one Brandi with excellent taste in literature. Have you joined us in the Koontzland - Dean Koontz group yet?

I liked it. Listened to it on audiobook. The ending was a little wacky, which is typical for John Saul, but I remember thinking it was actually one of his better stories - I might think differently on second reading but I was impressed with it 4-5 years ago :-)

So here I am, stuck looking for a new author, or good series. Anyone have any recommendations?

While you're waiting for more recommendations to come in, here are some TV shows to check out if you haven't already: The X-Files, Fringe, Supernatural, and Firefly ( I think that's what that last one was called - It was recommended to me, I haven't watched that one yet :-)
