Book Description

16 May 1991

To his mother, Joey seems an ordinary six-year-old boy - special to her, but to no one else. To the Servants of Twilight, however, he is an evil presence who must be destroyed - an Anti-Christ who must die. The terrifying ordeal for Joey and his mother begins in the supermarket car park where an old woman accosts them and pursues them with her terrible threats. Christine's world is turned into a nightmare of terror. Only her love for her child, and the support of the one man who believes her, gives her the chance to survive the Servants of Twilight...

This book was originally published under the pseudonym Leigh Nichols.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devilishly good! 11 May 1999
By A Customer
This book is a dark and disturbing story of a crazy old woman who is deep into her own Christian cult and thinks that a harmless young boy is the Antichrist!
One hot, summer's day Christine Scavello is out shopping with her six year old son, Joey. They are enjoying their day when all of a sudden a crazed old woman is accusing the boy of evil and screaming that he has to die! Christine manages to get Joey home, but the ordeal doesn't end there! A fistful of dark and terrifying events occur and Christine and Joey's lives are soon at risk! This heart stopping tale has an excellent beginning and an even better and surprising ending.
This book is filled with blood, gore, terror, fear, etc. and I would reccomend it to all Koontz fans and horror new-comers.
This is Koontz at his very best and he doesn't dissapoint in the slightest way! I've enjoyed all the Koontz books I've ever read, and this book is definetly no exception!
A classic Koontz tale that makes the face pale, the heart stop and stretches the nerve endings to virtually snapping point! Definetly worth five crowns!

That is until you read the Servants of Twilight. Arguably one of Koontz's best books. People are hunted everyday for politico-economic reasons, technological espionage - whatever. But when the hunted is a child, by definition and intrinsically, innocent, and the reason is supposedly religious fanaticism, well it's hard to take. He's innocent...isn't he? If not, so what? Could be Damien in the making. Or not. You decide. Either way this book will shake you to your very foundations. Stunning, compulsive narrative. Real, unadulterated fear in a quality plot. Never fear if you saw the movie, and weren't impressed. They did not grasp Koontz vision or impart the sorrow and terror and wonder this book does, effortlessly.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
"It began in sunshine, not on a dark and stormy night."

- herein

THE SERVANTS OF TWILIGHT was first published in somewhat different form as TWILIGHT under the byline "Leigh Nichols" in 1984. The organization after which the book is named is a well-meaning religious sect who are determined to eliminate the anti-Christ before he does irreparable damage to the world. But "the anti-Christ", in this case, is a six-year-old boy, a sweet kid being brought up by his single-parent mom. Joey at first seems to be a random selection on the part of the Servants' leader, Grace Spivey.

This isn't one of Koontz' more comfortable books, incidentally, with a faceless bad guy. Koontz lets us into Grace's point of view quite a bit, and she isn't somebody who has deliberately chosen an evil path. She's a very troubled person, apparently a schizophrenic, and genuinely believes that Joey is the spawn of evil.

When the Servants begin stalking Christine and her son, nearly killing Joey's pet dog, the law can't protect Christine, as there isn't adequate proof that the Servants are responsible (or even that they're stalking her family). At that point, Christine takes action to protect her little boy by hiring a private investigator, Charlie Harrison. (Christine does her share of protecting the boy, but she's sensible enough to hire skilled help. Everyone has to sleep sometime.)

Most of the remainder of the book is an extended chase scene, although the object is to get away rather than to catch anyone. Several of Koontz' other books have this kind of structure; SERVANTS falls into the earlier versions' pattern, in which relatively isolated bad guys are chasing the good guys rather than vast conspiracies that require long-term solutions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Koontz triumph! 6 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Once again Koontz draws you into his world with consumate ease. This time the story revolves around a cult who believe a young child to be the anti-christ, and who will stop at nothing to kill the child before he can fulfill his destiny. It twists and turns and by the end your left wondering if the cult wasn't right after all!

1.0 out of 5 stars Death by description 6 May 2014
By Ken
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Far to long. Scenes and thoughts described in multiple ways for every dramatic turn and probable outcome telegraphed very early in the book. Surprised rereleased in Dean Koontz name. You want to get to the end just to get to the end.
