Introduction

(His birth was marked by wonder and tragedy.

He sees beauty and terror beyond our deepest dreams.

His story will change the way you see the world.

On the heels of his #1 bestseller False Memory, Dean Koontz brings together his most compelling themes and an unforgettable cast of characters to create what is perhaps the most thrilling and emotionally powerful work of his critically acclaimed career.

Bartholomew Lampion is born on a day of tragedy and terror that will mark his family forever. All agree that his unusual eyes are the most beautiful they have ever seen. On this same day, a thousand miles away, a ruthless man learns that he has a mortal enemy named Bartholomew. He embarks on a relentless search to find this enemy, a search that will consume his life. And a girl is born from a brutal rape, her destiny mysteriously linked to Barty and the man who stalks him.

At the age of three, Barty Lampion is blinded when surgeons remove his eyes to save him from a fast-spreading cancer. As he copes with his blindness and proves to be a prodigy, his mother counsels him that all things happen for a reason and that every person’s life has an effect on every other person’s, in often unknowable ways.

At thirteen, Bartholomew regains his sight. How he regains it, why he regains it, and what happens as his amazing life unfolds and entwines with others results in a breathtaking journey of courage, heart-stopping suspense, and high adventure.

  "Different for Dean"by dcraggs (see profile) 07/04/08

Diverse group of readers, some new to Dean Koontz. Like the story, felt it was a little over the top and could have been condensed into a rousing and to the point 250 to 300 pages. There were some very... (read more)

 
  "Very shocking storyline with classic battle between good and evil"by chandra (see profile) 07/04/08

Really enjoyed the story and kept my interest. I liked how Koontz tied all of the characters together. Used to conduct therapy in the prison system so have met the "real life" Junior Cain several times,... (read more)

 
  "compelling writing style that seems to taper off and get sloppy at the end of the book"by Sydney (see profile) 07/04/08

Koontz's gripping storytelling ability makes the first 3/4 of this book soar. In contrast, the last part of the book becomes a repetative, oversimplified mantra of his book's theme of parallel worlds.
