After notifying the bishop that a young girl possessed by an invisible demon must be exorcised immediately, Father Nathaniel Kerrigan is shocked when the bishop insists he perform the ritual. Panicked, Kerrigan calls on his old friend and trusted mentor, Monsignor Carmichael, to convince the bishop he should use another priest instead. But when Kerrigan claims he wants out because he has no experience with the preternatural, Carmichael fears there is much more at stake than Kerrigan’s letting on. As Carmichael drags Kerrigan on a dark and painful journey through a secluded nature preserve, it soon becomes clear the real reason Kerrigan is so desperate to avoid the confrontation is that the demon inside the girl has a window into his hidden past.
Father Nathaniel Kerrigan has been ordered to attend an exorcism of a very young girl. He has some major reservations. So, he asks to have a chat with his friend and mentor, Monsignor Carmichael. It is during this chat that the past comes to light and Kerrigan has some things hidden from all!
This book is creepy and a little weird….but so unique and fascinating. I was so caught up in the backstory. I wanted to know why Kerrigan was so hesitant. At first you think it is because it’s and exorcism. But, then you realize there is much more to this story!
There are so many twists and turns in this story you just can’t stop reading. And add in that ending….and oh boy!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
