The symptoms of demonic possessions manifest themselves in many ways - convulsions, bite marks appearing from nothing, and levitation are all common. The victims frequently inherit clairvoyant abilities, too, seeing directly into another person's soul to uncover their deepest, darkest secrets. Perhaps most incredibly of all, though, the possessed may begin speaking in a language they've never previously been exposed to. These are symptoms it's almost impossible to explain or dismiss.
This chilling collection of stories date from modern times all the way back to the 1600s, spanning multiple countries including the United States, Great Britain, the Philippines, France, and South Africa. From the poor to the middle-class, the prostitute to the housewife, and the schoolboy to the local butcher, you will learn demons do not discriminate between class, gender, or age - it can happen to anyone.
Most of the time, the demon possesses one individual, but not always. In this book, you will find the case of two brothers possessed simultaneously and interacting with each other in the throes of their possession as well as an instance in which an entire school of children seem to suffer at the hands of a demonic entity.
Some of these horror stories arose from poor judgment, such as a pact with the devil or seeking the help of an ill-reputed healer. Others succumbed to a curse, while some are unfortunate enough to simply find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Some of the victims of these stories were delivered, but found their lives cut dramatically short, no doubt due to the physical torments their human bodies endured during the possession and exorcism.

Frightening Possession Tales
This was a disturbing entry in the author's haunted series. These cases of possession were frightening and horrific. I had not heard of any of these cases before and this book is very well researched. The victims are described as the normal people they are and the demonic nightmares they become. Many had exorcism performed and sometimes the outcome is not always what you'd expect. A disturbing short read. I read this book using Whisper sync, reading while listening to the Audi book versrion

Good up until the end
Iiked the book for what it was until the end where they tried to use the last story as an example of good intentions gone wrong. I have researched that story and this book horribly gets it wrong. besides that the only thing that caught my attention was early in the book they use the names of the demonologist "ed and Lorraine Warren" then later called those same people "bill and Lorraine" not sure if it was actually in the book or it was the readers snafu. The reader did have a few mispronunciations so I'm inclined to believe that it was reader error. Anyways it was a good book a bit short and direct in passing forward information.
