“Phantoms is gruesome and unrelenting…It’s well realized, intelligent, and humane.”—Stephen King
They found the town silent, apparently abandoned. Then they found the first body, strangely swollen and still warm. One hundred fifty were dead, 350 missing. But the terror had only begun in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, California.
At first they thought it was the work of a maniac. Or terrorists. Or toxic contamination. Or a bizarre new disease.
But then they found the truth. And they saw it in the flesh. And it was worse than anything any of them had ever imagined...

I found the first half of the book great. It was full of suspense and very scary. After I found out what was the cause of the horror though I was slightly disappointed. I felt it was a little cheesy and after that my opinion of the book dwindled. That book itself was well written and I love Dean Koontz, but I did not think was his best ideas. I still give it a four star rating because I don't regret reading it and still felt it had a lot of good qualities. Still a hard book to put did like all of Dean's books.
My absolute favorite Dean Koontz book of all. A perfect mix of mystery, suspense, thriller and horror. This book was the hardest book to put down of any book I have ever read.
Dean Koontz never fails to ramp up the spooky chill factor. This is another great book from him that I reread decades after publication . For more great reads check out his “Frankenstein “ series. Truly creepy!
