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!
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.Read more ›
Sad to say that the book did not have the same appeal as when I was younger. No longer being so naive and a bit more realistic about the ways of the world, the book didn't evoke my imagination in the same way as it did when I was younger. The romance was cheesy (I actually skipped those pages as it became irritating) and there was nothing really worth shouting about for me.
As usual for Koontz, The Servants Of Twilight is a highly readable book, easy to get into with well-fleshed out characters with realistic morals and motivations. The writing is good and the plotline interesting if not totally original. The main problem here is the length, at 500 pages [seemingly a given with a whole handful of his books] it is too long and could have been cut by perhaps a fifth without losing any significant plot or characterization, while good editing would have upped the pace and kept it fresh. To all intents and purposes it is a persuit thriller and I thought it got rather samey and sluggish in the middle third.Read more ›
