This one has aliens, dogs, fires, and winter in Montana. He must like Montana, several stories are set there. It is a good story with a few twists and turns. But then Koontz is very good at that. It's a good book, try it.

EVERY FORTRESS HAD THE POTIENTIAL TO BECOME A PRISON.
This was originally published in 1975, under the name "Invasion" and Koontz used the pseudonym Aaron Wolfe. This is only scary in the same vein that an Ira Levine book is scary. In one point in the book DK describes the writings of Blackmon and James as, HEAVY ON ATMOSPHERE AND LIGHT ON SUBSTANCE. I chuckled as I thought that was a great description of what I was hearing. In his own words here are some more descriptions of DK's early writing: BY THE TIME SHE ENDED A PARAGRAPH SHE COULD NOT RECALL A WORD OF IT. BEYOND BLANDNESS, NOTHING, NOTTA. EVEN THOUGH IT SEEM LIKE AN ETERNITY ONLY 5 SECONDS HAD ELAPSED.
Koontz eventually become a great writer, but his early books are just not very good. Any book Koontz wrote after 2000 will be great, but avoid the 1980's and below.

Excellent book and narration. This is the second book I've listened to by Dean Koontz and narrated by Christopher Lane, the first (and probably the better) being Lightning. Lots of twists and turns as expected. I'd recommend this book to anyone.
Although not one of Dean Koontz' best, this story is very enjoyable and worth listening to. Christopher Lane does a good job as a narrator of keeping the atmosphere of the book.
