Of all the Koontz books I've read thus far, The Taking seems closest to Phantoms in terms of major going-ons in the plot. However, despite Phantoms being "the scariest book ever" for some people, according to some reviews, it failed in raising a single goosebump on me while reading it. The Taking, on the other hand, definitely disturbed me a number of times throughout...though the ending really failed to do the rest of the book much justice.
