really liked it
Read in January, 2011

I enjoyed this short story by Koontz. I have to admit that it started off a little slow, but within 10 pages it had taken off and it really got going in the last third. Suffice to say that in this story Koontz combines "Flowers in the Attic" with "Rosemary's Baby" and he does it to good effect. We have the usual parade of kids and dogs in danger, but I have to say that I don't recall the last time Koontz was as dark as in this reminded me of the bad old days when reading one of his books was followed by a day of depression on the human condition.

I am happy to say that is not the case here, but it still a chiller of a book compared with the last several books where there was an undertone of optimism throughout the book.

I am currently reading 77 Shadow Street, which takes place in a physical location very close to Crispin's house in "Moonlit Mind", but so far I have not found an overt connection between the two stories.

This is a good book to burn a couple of hours and be chilled a little...
