When Declan was young, his mother went mad and tried to drown him. She was put into an institution and has spent years there. Now David, who was raised by his aunt and uncle, works in the same institute and it's this job that will nearly be the death of him. It's here he meets someone who may be able to answer his question on why a perfectly ordinary woman can go crazy in an instant. But the answer may lead to his own sanity being questioned!
I have to say that for such a short book, this sure does pack a punch!! It felt like the book was double the length as so much happened. I thoroughly enjoyed this!!
Declan was a great character. His mother tried to kill him yet he harbours her no ill will. He wants to try to understand why she did it and to build a relationship with her. He is truly just a nice guy! I was rooting for him the whole way through.
The plot of this was gripping, chilling and oh so thrilling. We enter a world filled with demons, demon hunters, nephilim and other nasties and the author captures the darkness perfectly. I listened to the audio of this in a day!! The author made the idea of demonic possession so scary and something that could happen. While reading it, I had chills at parts and it brought me back to my childhood when I snuck up late and watched The Exorcist. I had nightmares for months after that!!! This book had the same feel as that.
In all, a book that will stay with me. I devoured it and can't wait for more!!
Ben Kass did a really good job of capturing the feel of the book. He knew when to ramp up the tension and brought the story alive.
*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

The hours fly by!
I listened to this audiobook on multiple shorter flights, and I almost wished the flights were a bit longer so I could keep on listening! I liked every character (which doesn't happen often for me), but Declan really shines the most. He is characterized so genuinely, and he is such a good guy that you can't help but like him. Moreover, the story is really captivating and it flows at the perfect pace. I wouldn't mind listening to this title more than once.
As for the narration, Ben Kass' performance is highly entertaining and superbly done. The narration truly brought every character, situation, and circumstance to life as the story unfolded. I did not want this book to end!
If you're a fan of stories involving demons and exorcisms you should check out In the Eyes of Madness. I can't emphasize enough how well done this audiobook is. Christian aspects do make frequent appearances in this book, but don't worry, it is not heavy handed by any means.
This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom, and I'm very excited for book 2!
