After his father’s untimely death sends fifteen-year-old Ryan McIntyre into an emotional tailspin, his mother enrolls him in St. Isaac’s Catholic boarding school, hoping the venerable institution with a reputation for transforming wayward teens can work its magic on her son. But troubles are not unknown even at St. Isaac, where Ryan arrives to find the school awash in news of one student’s violent death, another’s mysterious disappearance, and growing incidents of disturbing behavior within the hallowed halls.

Things begin to change when Father Sebastian joins the faculty. Armed with unprecedented knowledge and uncanny skills acquired through years of secret study, the young priest has been dispatched on an extraordinary and controversial mission: to prove the power of one of the Church’s most arcane sacred rituals, exorcism. Willing or not, St. Isaac’s most troubled students will be pawns in Father Sebastian’s one-man war against evil—a war so surprisingly effective that the pope himself takes notice of the seemingly miraculous events unfolding an ocean away.

But Ryan, drawn ever more deeply into Father Sebastian’s ministrations, sees—and knows—otherwise. As he witnesses with mounting dread the transformations of his fellow pupils, his certainty grows that forces of darkness, not divinity, are at work. Evil is not being cast out…something else is being called forth. Something that hasn’t stirred since the Inquisition’s reign of terror. Something nurtured through the ages to do its vengeful masters’ unholy bidding. Something whose hour has finally come to bring hell unto earth.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 2/12/2014

    " Good but I think I would have liked the ending to tie up some loose ends that were never answered "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 1/24/2014

    " I read this book right when it came out, and It was great. Definitely compares to "Cradle and All" by James Patterson in a great religious horror story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thk | 1/21/2014

    " Egged to read this book due to Wei San as well as recommendations on Reilly's cover. A famous author which I have not tried reading. Short and concise writing, I managed to plough through this in a day. The short terse chapters are reminiscent of Khoury, but the tension built up is tremendous and entices you to read. The ending wasn't too satisfying, as the solution is not revealed at all, but is up to the reader to expound on. such as the elements of religion and dark rituals. However, I rather have this than the unsatisfying filler of an ending of Khoury's books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne | 1/20/2014

    " Good beginning, interesting description, but fails in the ending. It could've been better, IMHO. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 1/20/2014

    " I cannot, for the life of me, figure out if I like this book. It's typical Saul- very creepy and scary. It has to much religion in it for my taste. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ed | 12/17/2013

    " A quick read. Not a great story, but a good one. Ends abruptly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tina | 12/17/2013

    " I really though I would enjoy this book from the description.... I was very disappointed by the anti-Islamic tone of the book! I do not recommend this one! Like another reviewer mentioned, it was a chore to finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal Kellan | 11/5/2013

    " A little difficult to follow. In the end it all came together. I think I finally understood what was going on in the last four chapters. Good book, but prepare to be confused while you are reading it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michaelbatte | 10/25/2013

    " A little too much evil for me - would not want to read this author often - disturbing in a Steven King kind of way "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carly | 10/1/2013

    " A well told and intriguing story that I could not put it down until I'd finished. But I did not like the implications it made about the Islamic religion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynda Wood | 9/9/2013

    " Once again, John Saul has scared me again. Thank you "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Micky Parise | 9/8/2013

    " Loved this book. One of the rare ones that kept me turning the pages late into the night. Excellent characters and storyline. Recommend Highly! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pam | 7/10/2013

    " I've been a big John Saul fan for a long time. This one.... not so good. He writes well in that it really moves you through the story. But I just thought the whole last part of the book was silly. It could have been lots better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 10/28/2012

    " Very suspenseful and a page turning thriller. I would've enjoyed more detail of some of the characters and a better ending. However overall I really enjoyed this book and plan to read more by John Saul in the future. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherri | 8/24/2012

    " Eh....it was alright. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rosie | 7/20/2012

    " The ending was super weak. I really expected there to be more explanations of the aftermath. I feel like the author just kind of gave up after the big climax. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Todd | 1/23/2012

    " Typical John Saul fare. Teenagers in peril and some dying badly. Lots of fun if you can suspend disbelief and enjoy teenagers exploding in gobs of gooey flesh and blood or being possesed by supernatural evil. Yea! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 1/14/2012

    " It ended a bit abruptly and some characters from the beginning were never seen again. All and all, an OK beach book (which is what it was for me). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olivia | 10/14/2011

    " Always know what I'm getting with John Saul, which is why he is my go to author. Thanks to the author for a rare "happy ending"! "

    " Definitely not one of his best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendra Lee | 8/15/2011

    " promising beginning, flat anti-climatic ending.... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mav | 8/5/2011

    " I've been a fan of John Saul since The Homing, but this was just lame and cliche. Very disappointing. Makes me want to read The Homing again to see if it was as good as I thought when I was in my early twenties. Hmm.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristopher | 5/13/2011

    " Really good so far however stopped it to read other things. "

    " Ok plot and story moved along however the wrap up and ending were a bit to convenient.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 9/21/2010

    " A little difficult to follow. In the end it all came together. I think I finally understood what was going on in the last four chapters. Good book, but prepare to be confused while you are reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 9/10/2010

    " Excellent, creepy horror with a sci-fi twist. I haven't read one of Saul's books since high school, but this proved I still like them. I churned through this page turner very quickly. Highly recommend it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela | 5/4/2010

    " I listened to this story in my car, and while I was confused at points (some of the characters seemed random, and it took a while for the prologue to make any sense) over all it is a pretty good story. I think the epilogue as a little cheesy, but the resolution of the plot was good.
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 3/20/2010

    " This book was really good until the last quarter. It was like the author got tired of writing and just quickly made up an ending. Left me disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebekah | 2/12/2010

    " I have had a secret addiction to John Saul books for at least 15 years! If you want an easy, creepy read, he is your man. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 1/8/2010

    " This book was really good until the last pages. I really don't understand the ending at all and it was so sudden and abrupt?!? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 12/4/2009

    " This was the first John Saul novell I have read. It was well written but after the halfway point, it was predictable. I might try another Saul book one of these days. "
