Not All Exorcists are Equal….One is Marked.
When defrocked ex-priest, Jimmy Holiday, agrees to help an old friend with his sick daughter, he doesn’t expect the horrors that await him. Blackmoor, his friend’s new residence, rests upon the outskirts of the town of Sorrow’s Point. The mansion’s history of magic, mayhem, and death makes it almost a living thing – a haunted mansion straight out of a Stephen King novel. Jimmy must decide if the young girl, Lucy, is only ill, or if the haunting of the house and her apparent possession are real.
After the house appears to affect him as well with colors of magic dancing before his eyes, rooms warded by a witch, and a ring of power in his voice, Jimmy is met by a transient who tells him he has “the Mark.” Whatever being “marked” means, Jimmy doesn’t care. All he wants to do is help Lucy. But, helping Lucy means performing an exorcism.
I’m usually very picky about writing and have a hard time finding books that I don’t guess the endings. This book was one of them. DeVor had me on the edge of my seat from page one because I had to know what was going to happen. Her writing is elegant and flowing, and lush with detail. This book had all the right factors to lead into the creepiness, and the author did a fantastic job tying in flashes from the past with the current story. I love Jimmy’s internal struggle, and how he had to embrace that not everything is black and white, and open his mind to the spiritual side of things to accomplish a feat that he was destined to do. The book ended wonderfully, and I saw that the author has a second book out, and I cannot wait to read that! I think her books are only going to get better from here. Fantastic writing, the writer knows her craft; this story is impressively written. She develops this cast of characters and keeps you guessing on what is motivating who, and who is really in control. I love every, terrifying, fantastic moment of this book. This kept me on edge and still has me thinking about it. Very well done!
