Though this book was fairly well written (for an average book), there were too many predictable plot elements and a very dissapointing ending. The story kept me intrigued at first but by the end I was ready do skip and skim through it. I held out to the end hoping for some resurrection of interest but it fell flat. I read the excerpt for the sequel and it didn't hold my interest either. I have no desire to read more by this author. However, much of this could be my personal taste. Others could find this book compelling if they have more interest in Demons, Christian superstitions and stuff regarding Satan than I do. As I said, it wasn't poorly written.

I would give this a 4 star rating. It is a fabulous tale, very well researched and enchanting. The characters were very engaging and they take you on quite a journey. I did not see the ending coming but it was very fitting. A good yarn of a story with some whimsy to boot.
