With no improvement after two years, Dr. Jack McGowan finally decides to take a risk and hypnotises her. With terrifying consequences.A horrific, dark force is now unleashed on every member of the medical team, as each in turn attempts to unlock Ruby's shocking and sinister past. Who is this girl? And how did she manage to survive such evil?Set in a desolate ex-mining village, where secrets remain secrets, intruders are hounded from their homes and no one is talking, all paths eventually lead to a haunted mill, the heart of darkness... and The Father of Lies. Sleep tight.

    

Here is what I thought

This was kind of a strange book to listen too. The narrator was really good at the creepy demon voices…lol.

Ruby was put in Drummersgate Asylum because she has a lot of problems going on. Jack the doctor assigned to her decides that maybe the best way to get information out of her as to what happened to her might be hypnosis.

They are all going to wish they would have just left Ruby alone and never unlocked what Ruby had locked away. While Jack tries to hypnotize Ruby some strange things start to happen and an evil is unleashed. Everyone who has had some sort of contact with Ruby has something bad happen to them in different ways.

Not only are there some sort of supernatural type thing going on but there are some plain evil people behind things and they don’t want anyone finding out about what had been done to Ruby and will stop at nothing to make sure no one does.

One of the young women who work with Ruby, is determined to find out exactly what happened and I am curious to see what comes to light in the next book in this series.

Note: It does touch on pedophilia, rape is mentioned and of course demon possession, so I want you to know going in as if this isn’t something you’re comfortable with then don’t try it.

Recommend if you like

Dark stories, demon possession, the strange and weird.

The Narrator

Henrietta Meire is quickly becoming a new favorite as it seems lately I am getting a lot of her narrations all of a sudden. 🙂 She read me a great crime fiction series and now the strange occult horror. 🙂 She did a great job.

    I don’t touching on those topics though I don’t like a heavy focus on them. This sounds absolutely terrifying and like an audiobook that would give me nightmares! I think I need it! It’d be perfect for October though I will blame you for not being able to get any sleep and jumping at every creak!
