This book is quite unlike any other I have read on the topic of possession and exorcism. usually when one thinks of exorcism they think of a priest coming in to cast out demons, but that's not always how intruding spirits are cast out. Many cultures have their own rituals for curing one of possession, but the way in which the intruding spirits were dealt with in this supposedly true story is one I would have never imagined.

I stumbled on this book and ordered it whilst not knowing much about it, when I received it I realised it was by David St.Clair (author of the devil rocked her cradle) I was pretty pleased by this as I have been meaning to read some more of his books.

I have to say that it was not what I was really expecting, It is not your average tale of possession and casting out demons from a young girls body, whilst the book does have its fair share of that there is a lot more to it, I thoroughly enjoyed it

Okay, it may not be fair to give a review, but here I go. I was just sitting here trying to remember one of the first books I read for fun. Not the books that made a life impression on me, you know, like the Catchers in The Ryes and Walden's, but the fun, "oh my gosh I can't wait to read this tonight" and this book came to mind. So good to see it still has the same cover. But this book left an impression on me, was creepily wonderfuly and suspenseful and I gobbled it up. Good stuff.

This book was very unexpecting, I thought it was going to be a really gruesome story of 2 possessed girls but was pleasantly surprised by the actual story. It was such a good read as there was never a dull moment, there was always something happening that was exciting. Overall I loved this book and would happily read it again, which I look forward to doing in the future.

I first read this book at about 13 years old , it fascinated me then and it still does . A true story of possession of 2 young girls 13 years apart . If you have any interest in the paranormal I would urge you to read it .
