Bookmarks - The Taking

The Taking: written by Dean Koontz, copyright 2004, Random House published.

A couple wakes up to torrential rain outside their California mountains home and realises something is wrong when the TV starts giving strange news and eventually cuts out.
Leaving their house the couple encounter many strange creatures and organisms as they try to gather and save children with the help of a pack of dogs and some other people.
People are dying and going missing all over the place.

Definitely an apocalypse novel. And a darn good one.

Suspenseful with some truly creepy parts, this is a horror story with some possible religious overtones.

I would recommend this book to everyone, except if you are prone to nightmares about the world ending.
