I just reread this, and it is one of Koontz best books. He does an amazing job on the characters of children, a disabled girl in this book is especially vivid in detail. I like the storyline, and bioethics is a reality that many do not understand are being lauded in academia, and medical schools. No cripple or person over 60 is deemed of any use to society by bioethics/utilitarian standards. Koontz does a wonderful job of explaining in detail in all his books. He got a lot of letters from the bioethics crowd for his blunt blasting of their philosophy.

This was one of the first Dean Koontz books I read while in college or just after. I loved it then and I loved rereading it recently, nearly 10 years later. The story is fresh, unique, interesting, and a page-turner for sure.

I'm not fond of fantasy, but I found the dialogue exceptional
and worth the read

pg 88
Since childhood, her defenses against a cruel life had been anger and stubbornness. She'd seen herself as the lone defender of the castle, ceaselessly prowling the ramparts, at war with the world. But a constant state of battle readiness had held off friends as weal as enemies, and in fact it had prevented her from experiencing the fullness of life, which might have filled those vacant rooms with good memories to balance the bad that cluttered other chambers.

pg 38 Seated, bowing her head, Geneva offers a succinct but heartfelt prayer: "Thank you, God, for providing us with all we need and for giving us the grace to be satisfied with what we have."
