There was a lot of interesting subject matter in this book; government experiments gone awry, along with genetic engineering, and suicidal wildlife. Because I read "Fear Nothing" I already had a basic idea of the story. Chris Snow returns in the second part of the Moonlight Bays series, still plagued with XP (xerodoma pigmentosum), a rare disease that leaves its victims so sensitive to light that they're forced to live in the darkness. Along with his sidekick Orson, best friend Bobby Halloway, and best girl Sasha Goodall who all have a way with guns and share the trait of intrepidation. Fort Wyvern is described as a very creepy place in a very desolate part of Moonlight Bay. Lilly Wing's son has been kidnapped right out from under her nose, and once Chris finds out the reader is brought along on a crazy journey to find the boy, and an unexpected guest. There is very good character development but I wasn't too fond of the surfer lingo. The description of the Stanwyk home was very well visualized. Again Koontz uses his typical formula and the plot, no matter how strange it gets, becomes predictable. If I hadn't read the first of the series I would have given this book 3 stars.
