Having just about concluded that it was nothing more than the wind and the storm that was upsetting the horses -- and now they were all leaping and snorting more furiously than ever, as if they were not three ordinary nags but a trio of high-strung thoroughbreds -- I turned toward the door and quite accidentally caught sight of the light which glowed eerily just beyond the ...more

Aaron Wolfe is Dean Koontz. This is one of his early books and shows it. It was entertaining but not as good as many of his later thrillers. The invasion of the title is an alien invasion, an attack on a small family that is isolated in a snow storm. The ending is relatively weak, although I won't give it away. It certainly held my attention though and I read it mostly in one day. A quick read.

This is Dean Koontz writing under a "Nom de Plume" and, it is a perfectly fine SF story. It is the first "Laser book" I have read. This series of books, by the publishers of Harlequin novels, trying SF, edited by Roger Elwood, came out in the mid-seventies.

This was one of Dean Kontz's first books, circa 1975 - a quick enjoyable read. It kind of felt like a bad 70's movie.

This was a short novel, early works by Dean koontz. I thought it was a extremely well written, creepy,surprising book that I just could not put down. Koontz sucks you into a great SF story while revealing his thoughts on the human condition and how our humanity or lack thereof seems to be the underlying theme of this invasion. The story moved seamlessly from beginning to end. The storyline and how well it was written are both definitely one of my favorite but koontz.

It was obvious this is one of Koontz's earliest works, as the writing and story aren't as well written and his later works. The story seems to wander from time to time and I found myself skipping passages that weren't central to the story.

I read the updated version. Fairly intense and highly recommended.

Okay read. Winter Moon was a better version of this story. I couldn't put that one down!

One of his pen-name books. I enjoyed reading it. It does not suffer from the horrible Koontz endings found in many of his other books.
