Dekker does a better job in this book than some of his others in crafting a compelling story. His writing is also tighter. His characters still lack a certain spark, and as in all of his novels, I don't really care what happens to them. This is too bad, since the story is really interesting. Dekker is doing his best to imitate Koontz, which is an idea full of merit. But Koontz has a way of making his lead characters very real, and Dekker fails to do this. It is important, since the story is fantastic in nature.
The last Dekker book I read, Boneman's Daughter, was not this good, and I was tempted to give up on reading any more of his novels. This one left me willing to read another one.
