More About the Author

I was born and raised in Pennsylvania where I graduated from Shippensburg State College (now Shippensburg University). When I was a senior in college, I won an Atlantic Monthly fiction competition and have been writing ever since. My first job after graduation was with the Appalachian Poverty Program, where I was expected to counsel and tutor underprivileged children on a one-to-one basis. During my first day on the job, I discovered that the previous occupier of my position had been beaten up by the very kids he had been trying to help and had landed in the hospital for several weeks. The following year was filled with challenge but also tension, and I was more highly motivated than ever to build a career as a writer. I wrote nights and weekends, which I continued to do after leaving the poverty program and going to work as an English teacher in a suburban school district outside Harrisburg. After a year and a half in that position, my wife, Gerda, made me an offer I couldn't refuse: "I'll support you for five years," she said, "and if you can't make it as a writer in that time, you'll never make it." By the end of those five years, Gerda had quit her job to run the business end of my writing career. Gerda and I live in southern California with their dog Anna, and the enduring spirit of their dog Trixie in southern California.

Dean Koontz is an international household name whose hugely entertaining parables for our times have been bestsellers in many countries, selling seventeen million copies each year.

Review

'As ever, the writing is fluid, the dynamic taut and the relationships between the characters - Snow, his girlfriend Sasha, Bobby and the intelligent animals, Orson and Mungojerrie, in particular - compulsive' The Times

'Tour de force... With headlong glee, Koontz again unveils encyclopedic intelligence about how things work in the physical world - and how to bolt sentences into the moonlight' Kirkus Reviews

'Masterful stuff' Jersey Evening Post

No bestselling novelist creates magnetic characters as consistently as Koontz does. The wonderfully delineated loyalties among these characters will win readers' hearts. The suspense soars...a rousing crowd-pleaser' Publishers Weekly

'Looking for the kind of suspense that will raise goosebumps on goosebumps? Cosy up to the latest pulse-quickener from Dean Koontz...full of the creepy kind of dread [his fans] have come to savour in his novels' People

Book Description

SEIZE THE NIGHT is the brilliant second thriller in the Moonlight Bay trilogy, following the acclaimed bestseller FEAR NOTHING, from international bestselling author Dean Koontz.

Yet again we dive into the mysterious world of moonlight bay and the main character Chris Snow is up to his neck in trouble once again.Children are going missing and Chris takes it apon himself to rescue the children with a little help from his faithful friends of course.
All the favourite characters from the first book are back.Bobby the surfing board head,Sasha the DJ,the geneticly enhanced pooch orson and the ever scary monkies.
The real horror of this book is centered around real life situations like the perverse corrutption of power from high up authorities and I no doubt think that genetic experiments are happening in an underground lab somewhere in the world and a gobal disater could happen anytime.NOW THAT IS A SCARY THOUGHT.
Fear Nothing and Seize the Night are both good stand alone books that are very fast paced with lots of humour and horror to keep you page turning all night but they are best read in order.
When you've finished both and are desperate (as I am ) for the third book then I suggest that you read When the Wind Blows by James Patterson which is in the same vien as this series.
ENJOY.................

Format: Paperback
This book grips you from the moment you pick it up. Following on from Fear Nothing, you find out more about each character. The first person view is a masterpeice in narrative. Chris Stone jokes and speaks to the reader as if you were sitting in front of him listening to him recount his bizzare adventures in Moonlight Bay. There is just enough suspense to keep you guessing and wanting to find out how things turn out, leaving you unable to put the book down, even for a minute. The scare factor is spine tingling at times, making you look over your shoulder (or out of the window) to make sure there isn't a vicious Rhesus staring at you with murder in it's eyes. The reletionship between Chris and his close friends makes you wish you had friends like them. The way they compliment each other, in a way only real friends do, is very emoting. This is supposed to be the 2nd part of a planned trilogy, I can't wait till the 3rd part.

Format: Paperback
Christopher Snow is the most memorable Koontz character I have come accross in my reading of 32 Koontz books (currently reading 'One Door Away From Heaven') The relationship between the characters is incredible-you really don't want to finish the book because they feel like your friends, you really do feel like you actually know them. It's incredible. The surfer lingo is not irratating; it adds depth to the characters and it is always explained so you can't miss the meaning. All in all a really brilliant book... I am waiting patiently for the third installment!! Definately a book you can read over if you wish, and a book I could not put down even whilst eating!

Format: Paperback
This book is quite simply put, Dean Koontz most profound and thoughtful work. (With the exception of Dark Rivers). Admittedly, a large part of the book allows you into the mind of Chris Snow, developing the character and his relationships, especially those with Bobby Halloway and Lilly Wing. This really sets up an emotional level to the final confrontation, which, it must be said, is so similar to Dark Rivers of the Heart in its use of shock tactics and surprises. My only criticism would be that the author tries to cram too much into the last 40 pages, which he could have got away with spreading out over a larger space, allowing the reader more time to get into the final set-piece. Though it didn't have me turning pages until the early hours of the morning all the way through, I challenge anyone to put it down once the characters have entered the hangar at Wyvern. Congratulations Mr Koontz, a job well done! Looking forward to the final installment now...

Format: Paperback
Seize the night draws you into a world of dissillusion and terror as it almost makes you believe that your own world has become your own private moolight bay. Knowing the characters from the first part 'Fear Nothing' meant you were straight into the action. From the first word I was held captive, and at times had to fight for my breath as I was reading so quick to get to the next page. ( My big fear was that Orson wouldn't make it - I'm a big fan of his). Basically this book is so a must for any Koontz fan, especially if you enjoyed 'Fear Nothing'. Read it and you may realise that there really is more to fear than you think !

Format: Hardcover
'Seize the Night' is a gripping and terror inducing tale of a young man (Christopher Snow) who has a rare genetic disease (called Xeroderma Pigmentosum) which prevents him from going in sunlight or in fact any light. He lives by night with his faithful and very different dog Orson. This book is not centered on Chris though, and where you might think a writer would make this character self-pitying because of his condition, Koontz gives the character an overwhelmingly strong personality and he is someone who thinks more of others than himself. All the characters in fact are equally powerful but in different but equally wonderful ways, even the very lovable dog. This story is centered on the dissapearance of some local kids and Chris takes it upon himself to find out what's happening and to rescue the kids. This takes him to the old abandoned military base, Wyvern, where very supernatural and dark things occur that could lead to Armageddon.
If you have read 'Fear Nothing' then you just have to read this! It is more terrifying, more shocking etc. Days after I read this book I was left with feelings of total awe at what the world would be like if it ended. I even had a nightmare where gigantic genetically modified insects were taking over the world! Really powerful stuff.
You really have to read 'Fear Nothing' first to get the real history of Wyvern and the town of Moonlight Bay... and to also get more of the lovable and extremely different pooch, Orson! His personality really shows in the first book as well as his 'difference'.
This book contains all the ingredients to a perfect horror novel. Good storyline, excellent characters, powerful words and descriptions and much, much more! There is even some genetics thrown in which adds to the scare factor an awful lot...
