The story picks up where the last one ended after explaing a few details for the sake of the reader thaqt may not have read the first book. Once the story gets going agian it continues to dive into this new world that threatnes to change the world as it has existed. the entire time you are led to beleive that something will go wrong but you are not sure what. As the story climaxs and the answers to the questions you havee had are starting to be asked, Koontz decides to end the book and leave you wanting the third instalment of this modern spin on an old story. worth reading, but be prepared to finish the book desiring the end of the story.
