Publisher's Summary

Dylan O'Connor is a gifted young artist just trying to do the right thing in life when, in a nightmarish instant, he is attacked by a mysterious "doctor" and injected with a strange substance. He is told that he is now a carrier of something that will either kill him...or transform his life in the most remarkable way. Then he is told that he must flee before the doctor's enemies hunt him down for the secret circulating through his body. Stunned, disbelieving, Dylan is turned loose to run for his life - and straight into an adventure that will turn the next 24 hours into an odyssey of terror, mystery, and wondrous discovery.
By the Light of the Moon is a novel of heart-stopping suspense and transcendent beauty, a tale of how evil can destroy us and love can redeem us. This is a masterwork of the imagination in which the surprises come one after another and the spell of sublime storytelling triumphs throughout.

This book has many characteristics. It's humorous, dramatic, sci-fictional, exhilirating. This book is highly reccomended so put it in your cart today! Dylan O' Connor's brother is a very humorous, traumatic, and very smart. I've read it twice already and it never get's old. By the way, this is my dads profile and I'm only 12, and I LOVED this book. If you're looking towards something more realistic, i reccomend Life Expectancy. My very favorite book ever.

My first Dean Koontz book was an accidental read many years ago and I couldn't believe that I had avoided him as an author for so long. I have to say that he is indeed a strange writer but his books strike a note with me that I find addictive. I would rank this book as definitely one of the best that I've read. It is sweet and endearing in the love of one brother for another and in the development of friends thru trust.

I've found that Koontz writes on the cutting edge of possibility and that is without a doubt interesting and a little scary in the possibilities. This book has a lot of those possibilities peppered in it.

I think I used to avoid his books because I thought they were horror books. I couldn't have been more wrong. I agree with another reviewer saying that if you only read one Koontz book, this one should be it.
