The first book was so great --- it was scary and compelling. This sequel is crap. It's whiny, slow, and about all kinds of stuff that has nothing to do with hauntings, possessions, or paranormal stuff.

If you liked the first book, stick with that. Don't bother with this one. Really. It's just a long catalog of all the sad stuff that's happened to this guy and the pity party he had for 20 years.

Blessed are the people who can actually finish this book.

Based on the cover of the book, I was expecting something really scary. I was disappointed. The first book is sooo much better and is actually about the haunting. This book is based more on the people involved in the aftermath of the haunting and how the haunting effected the family. Very slow and boring.
Book Review originally published here:

Blessed Are The Wicked is perhaps one of the worst true haunting books Ive read. Why? Because its not about the haunting. Its not about what happened at The Union Screaming House which, by the way, is barely touched upon and I, having not read the first book, barely understood what had happened there. Its not even about the aftermath, about dealing with demonic possession and the occassional resurfacing of demons

I am not usually a fan of sequels for anything since they more often than not fall short of "part one". Blessed Are the Wicked is an exception. Mr. LaChance has a way of writing that makes you actually feel emotions towards the people in the story. I am a veteran paranormal investigator so I could readily relate the crumbling of relationships amongst the team involved in helping the family that moved in after the LaChance family. I highly recommend this book as it adds details that were not in ...more

I really enjoyed his first book The Uninvited, but this effort was something of a damp squib for me. Mr Lachance seemed to concentrate on his mess of a marriage and deriding his wife, he also concentrates on his dysfunctional family, mainly his eldest daughter Lydia. For me a great disappointment.

Solid follow up to the Uninvited. I now see these two books as a whole. Answered a lot of questions I had, but also brought up more! I appreciate that though, a good narrative will do that sometimes. I'm a sucker for a true haunting story, I make no apologies for that!

Just didn't do it for me

The book jumps all over the place he spends 60 percent of the book complaining about his ex wife and another 20 percent of the book just complaining, the book could of been good if anyone else wrote it that had any talent.

Good follow-up. Not as much paranormal events but intriguing story one the less.

Scariest thing about this book is the cover. and that I bought it before I had read the first book. I won't make that mistake again, a choice that will haunt me for life

Steve is a good writer. Just too much about his personal struggles and not enough about the actual subject of the book which are the antagonist, the bad guys, the ones who create the life threatening circumstances.

This is the sequel to The Uninvited, which if you haven't read you need to do so before reading this book.

The Uninvited goes into detail about the haunting at the Union Screaming House. This book, while still dealing with paranormal events that occurred after Steven LaChance moved out of the house, isn't just about the author's paranormal experiences. You will still find some paranormal experiences in this book, but it is also about the aftermath of the haunting and the healing process the

Good sequel to The Uninvited. I enjoyed both these books. The author covered all bases and concluded his story well in this sequel. I love true haunting stories and this one is good. I had trouble putting both these books down!
