Seize the Night by Dean Koontz

Mixed review.  

An entertaining, funny horror story.

Seize the Night (1998) is the second in the Moonlight Bay Trilogy, involving Christopher Snow, who suffers from the rare (but real) disease called XP (xeroderma pigmentosum).

Actually, the 3rd book never got finished.

Fascinating characters, include Chris’ rich surfer bum friend Bobby Halloway. A smart dog. And a smarter cat.

It’s a great premise. The world is slowly changing due to an accidentally released virus developed by the U.S. military.

BUT … the plot bogs down in an endless and seemingly pointless series of adventures in an abandoned military base. They are suppose to be searching for kidnapped children — but seem to wander randomly.

The plot I’d give 2/10.

The entertaining banter and pop references kept me going.
