ABOUT THE BOOK:

A near tragic incident at the hands of his psychotic mother left Declan Peters alone and with so many questions. 

Years later, Declan is determined to find a way to be closer to his mother and takes a job at the institution where she's being held. That fateful decision will be the impetus for a chain of events so terrifying that Declan will question his own grasp on reality. 

What he finds will be more horrifying than anything he's ever experienced and more dangerous than anything he's yet known. In a place, rife with demonic possession and sadistic beings, will Declan finally be able to find the answers he's longed for before its too late or will he succumb to the evil forces that inhabit the institution and all who live there?

MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

I didn't think this book would grab me from the very beginning but it did.  I am not a fan of the cover, and usually that is what brings me to a book in the first place.  Sometimes I feel if the cover isn't amazing the book might not be either.  I am glad I did not just this book by it's cover.  It was a great book to read.

Declan is a young man, that was almost killed at the age of 7 by his psychotic mother.  Can you even imagine that happening to you?  I cannot.  This poor kid had it rough.  He lived with his awesome aunt and uncle for the rest of his years, and started working at the mental hospital where his mother was living.

Declan from the start seemed like a kid with great potential.  He is faced with some pretty intense situations, and always seems to come out on top.

This story has daemons and nephalim in it.  I LOVE stories like this.  They are just so much fun to read.  There is a "love story" going on in the back ground of the book, that makes it even more fun to read.

When Declan realizes he is able to do things that most humans cannot he finds that there is more to his life than he ever imagined.  It's a fun ride to go on with him.  It's exciting, and interesting.  

There are a lot of references to faith in this book, but I loved it.  How can you go through life with so many things working against you without faith?  I have no idea, and that is what made it more interesting to read about for me.

If you like stories about daemons, daemon hunters, nephalim and other creatures this is a great book to read.  It's exciting, and has a romance to book.  I am anxious to see what the next book will bring.
