(The World of Shadows, #1)

The Everett ExorcismHe really thought his journey from the Vatican to small town Everett, Washington was a waste of his important time, from the tiring journey to the lack of local sophistication he was used to. Father Niccolo Paladina was going to straighten out the parish priest who broke protocol and went directly to Rome for assistance for a demonic possession. End. Of. Story.

Too bad the terrifying truth was, even he was out of league when evil came to call. If not for one of the church’s former secret Hunters showing up, the town of Everett would have gone completely to Hell. Now two enemies must join forces against the minions of Hell and the monster who has become their earthly puppetmaster. THE EVERETT EXORCISM by Lincoln Cole is dark, gritty and filled with things that go bump in the night as Faith is tested and the betrayal of a powerful church figure bring unlikely allies together in the world’s darkest hours. Lies will be told, truths revealed and for some, humility restored as Heaven and Hell fight for humanity’s very soul.

Lincoln Cole had my hair standing on end from the beginning, in part, because Fr. Paladina was, to be honest, a pompous arse, although I must say, his Aha moment was a real redeemer for him. In an atmosphere of murky evil, this tale is one of those that just burrows under one’s skin and makes NOT finishing this tale in one sitting impossible!

It's that time of year to have the heck scared out of you and Lincoln Cole knows how to play with his readers' minds.

I am voluntarily reviewing an ARC edition from Lincoln Cole
