Read in August, 2011

There are two boys/young men born with paranormal gifts. One is the son of a woman who puts down restless ghosts and demons at a cost to herself. She has Native American blood and the gift has come to her through her family line, along with the monster that hunts the people of her family, trying to get them to destroy themselves once they've begun their careers. The other boy is the grandson of a revival preacher, a healer who is terrified of the people he heals and of his power to heal them. He is also terrified of the woman and her son; his grandfather has told them they are demonic, and he believes.

Like a lot of McCammon, this is a compulsive read. I would have liked a lot more ghost-busting and less of the religiosity, but hey--I'm not the writer!
