So, I heard about this book in a forum about another author's books. I was intrigued by the description, and decided to give it a shot. The narrator reminded me a lot of Billy Crystal, who is a favorite of mine. The whole premise of the series is completely awesome. I mean, I absolutely love alternative takes on major religions. (Da vinci code and the Exorcist are right up there). The idea of a group of monks set up to deal with supernatural snafus made me leap for joy. Well executed, and well read, I'm looking forward to more audiobooks from this team.

So, this book came to my attention thanks to a group I am a member of (Thanks, Team TW). After discussions about the nature of the story, and the promise of a very dark tale, I had to see what this audiobook held for me. As a story that falls outside my normal listening genres, I will say that I was not disappointed in the slightest with this story.
What started out with Sebastian on his own project quickly evolved into a journey in a land of fantasy and evil. Sebastian, a Junior Inquisitor, is jerked from his private quest into a world that can only be described as chaotic.
The characters in this story were really well developed and there were quite a few scenes that just left me cringing. In fact, that is where the title of my review comes from as certain scenes in this book left me feeling as though this book was an entry in the Hellraiser movie series (The screw face, the dog training scene). This is not a bad thing as I was sold on the premise of this being a dark tale, and that is for sure what was provided.
Travis did a fantastic job with narration and had the perfect voice, tone, and accent for this story.
Can't wait for book two! Bravo, Mr. Farish! Bravo, indeed.
