I had heard about this book for a while, which was originally published in the 1990s. My overall impression was that it was adequate but not particularly gripping horror. The story is about an ancient creature of evil called the Crota, which had been trapped underground but was released by an earthquake and went on a killing spree. There is a lot of gore and Native American mysticism, based on the author's native heritage. While I liked the premise, I found the story overall to be flat and the characters to lack depth. I never got invested in the characters' outcome or felt really scared by the Crota. ( )

Another good creature feature- this one is based on Native American folklore which was interesting. The hunt for the Crota also leads through subterranean caverns which I think always makes for a nice atmospheric background. ( )

Question: How can Dean Koontz have some 77,000 readers here on Library Thing and Owl Goingback 116? It boggles my mind. I myself only found out about him recently through a recommendation here on this site. So I will in return help spread the word and hopefully influence some of you to search out his books.
Traditional horror has far too few great authors to ignore such a talented newcomer. As a first novel Crota has some flaws, some of the story's mechanisms are fairly standard, and several of the characters are cut from a straight-forward Stephen King mold. But in its Native American aspects, and an original and interesting monster, the story shines. Once into it, the story will engross you to the end. ( )
