From the New York Times bestselling author of the Fallen series and the Remy Chandler series, a new dark fantasy series filled with demons, exorcisms, and the fight against the worst that hell has to offer... There is more to our world than meets the eye—darker things, crueler things. Exorcist John Fogg and his wife, psychic medium Theodora Knight, know what lurks in the shadows. But even they’re not prepared for the worst Hell has to offer... It was supposed to be a simple exorcism, a publicity stunt to firmly establish John and Theodora’s thriving paranormal investigation empire in the public eye. But something went wrong, leading to an on-air massacre that unleashed a malicious host of demons and left Theodora catatonic, possessed by countless spirits. John sets out on a desperate quest to find a cure for his wife, but his obsession brings him face-to-face with an even more terrifying problem: Theodora’s possession is only one piece of a deadly plot that is threatening the entire world. Because an ancient evil is about to make Earth its battlefield—and without John and Theodora’s intervention, there is no chance for salvation...
What I thought of this book.
Well, this was one of the strangest and creepiest books I have ever listened too.
John Fogg, was a bit of a skeptic till he met his wife who can talk to the dead. Now they have a TV show and one of those episodes they were filming things went horribly wrong and now his wife had several demon’s in her and at first was in catatonic state.
John will do just about anything to figure out how to help his wife, but he is in for more than he bargained for. This one is very hard to review without feeling like I will give something away so I will leave it at that and just say a few things about characters.
I like John Fog he is a very driven man who loves his wife deeply. He really would do about anything for her. Theodora goes though a lot of unbelievable stuff and changes through out this novel and John still loves her. Some might be pushed away by the grotesque demon changes that happens but he knows more how to dill with this stuff than most. She is one tough character and I liked them both.
Has a lot of interesting secondary characters who have all encountered things such as what John and Theodora are going through and are there to win the war that is coming with these demons.
The story was just really creepy and strange and so weird to listen to with the demon voices, etc. Just gave me chills. I am really interested in how this series is going to continue.. It leaves you with closure but also wanting to know what is going to happen next.
If you enjoy paranormal books that are a little on the creepy side then you will like this one.
This is my first time listening to Eric Michael Summerer and he was great. Boy could he get creepy with the demon voices and he really keep the book interesting. I listened to the book on fast, on my PC as I always do. 🙂
