A slam-bang, all-out thriller . . . but also poignant and noble, with heroism, self-sacrifice, and redemption as the order of the day. Tightly woven, action-packed, and terrifically suspenseful throughout.--"The Flint Journal." Available in a tall Premium Edition. Reissue.

Earlier this year, I read The Taking by Dean Koontz.

Set in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California, a married couple try to keep safe and unravel what‘s going on amidst a mysterious apocalyptic event.

I loved how this story was both cozy & unsettling, taking place in a cabin-style home at first, then moving around through a small mountainous town, all with terrifying entities/creatures lurking about. 👍👍

This is the second time I have started a Dean Koontz book and realized I have read it before 😜. It was just as good the second time around

Ugh...sloooooowwwlyyy trudging through this one 😕 still looking for the “Thrill Ride”

MidnightBookGirl I love some of his books (Odd Thomas is one of my all time favorite literary characters) but other books of his are just not my jam. 3y

When I shamelessly display my "Dean Koontz" stack while I wait for another 7 of them to arrive! ?
.
I just started my internship which was compulsory and though it doesn't pay much but still I get something to look forward too!
.
And sometimes it makes me want to buy more and more and I fear that I would live in a cardboard box just to provide shelter to my books. ?

I'm new to King, so there's not a book of his I #lovetoreread yet. But Koontz was my jam in high school and college, and this one was by far my favorite. I must've read it at least half a dozen times. #stephenking17

MaleficentBookDragon I loved this one too! It got bashed by a lot of his fans, but I've read it a few times. It's one of my favorites of his. 6y
Celeste57 @MaleficentTheBookDragon I've never understood the bashing. I thought it was fabulous! And T.S. Eliot is my favorite poet, so all the quotations from his poetry made me really happy. 😄 6y
JulAnna Have you read Strangers? That is one of my favorite Koontz books! 😊 6y
Celeste57 @JulAnna I have, but it's been a while. I smell a reread in my future! 😜 6y

This is a "freezer" book!! It is one of the scariest books I've ever read. It even gave me dreams last night, that I woke up from, with my heart pounding. I'm having to read a calmer book in-between chapters of this one. I can't wait to see what happens next though. #freezerbook #friendsreference #scarybook #thetaking

KellyKate That's all I need to know- getting ASAP! 6y
