STORY-LINE THE EVERETT EXORCISM BY LINCOLN COLE:

Father Niccolo Paladina arrives in Everett to investigate a report of demon possession.  Quickly Paladina realizes something’s not right in Everett.  Although he can not put his finger on the problem, he feels the strangeness in every cell of his body.

As strange things begin to happen an old enemy shows up;  Paladina realizes things are spiraling out of control. He’s in for the surprise of a lifetime as he discovers demons exist;  not as part of his imagination, but in the real world.  His horror increases as he finds the citizens of Everett are in serious trouble.  My book reviews of The Everett Exorcism follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Where do I start with this review?  I am not sure I can do the book justice;  however, I will attempt to peak your interest in this captivating bookLincoln Cole hooked me in the chilling prologue and held me in the palm of his hand through the rest of the book.  As I read The Everett Exorcism, I found my heart pounding and chills on my arms. What an intriguing, scary read!

Father Niccolo Paladina, Father Jackson Reynolds, and demon Hunter Arthur Vangeest bring realism to this tale of demons, God, and the Catholic Church.  I loved watching the characters grow and mature as Cole fully developed their style and personality.  Cole included an array of secondary characters which brought depth to the storyline.  As a result, The Everett Exorcism‘s an intense, action-packed drama of the age-old battle between good and evil.  With elements of the paranormal, horror, religion, greed, and power, Cole crafted an intriguing emotional tale;  including an Exorcist who does not believe in demons brought originality and realism to the story.

Father Paladina’s education readied him for a successful career as an Exorcist.  He had all he needed except the belief in the existence of demons.  How could he exorcise something, he did not believe existed.  As a Man of God, Paladina had several characteristics which were not priestly;  including his hatred of Arthur.  His character’s believable with all the human traits, frailties, insecurities, and emotions felt by the rest of the world.

Although Arthur appears as an antagonist in the first half of the book, the reader sees a different Arthur in the last half.  As Cole unfolded Arthur’s story, the reader finds a man filled with pain, regret, and determination.  Paladina’s attitude changed as he came to see Arthur in a new light;  he became a true believer in evil and demons.  The reader will find Father Jackson Reynolds has a hidden talent;  which will make him very valuable to the coming battle.

Lincoln Cole skillfully developed the antagonist of The Everett Exorcism;  filling him with greed and the desire for more and more power.  Cole placed him in a seat of religious authority where he uses his power and influence for evil.  He’s the great pretender who appears pious.

MY OPINION:

I found The Everett Exorcism fast-paced and well-written. The characters are well-developed, full-bodied, realistic and believable.  Cole created an intense drama with an original, refreshing storyline.  He created an action-packed finale filled with demons and terror as they battle for the souls in small town Everett.  Although part of a series, The Everett Exorcism‘s a standalone readCole gives the reader enough background to bring you up-to-date.  I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend.  I look forward to the next book in this series.

THE EVERETT EXORCISM RECOMMENDATION:  STARS 4

LOOKING GLASS LIES

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.  Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.  1 Peter 3:3-4

 

STORY-LINE LOOKING GLASS LIES BY VARINA DENMAN:

Looking Glass Lies by author Varina Denman will rip out your heart.  An intense look into today’s society filled with warped values, self-destruction, and deception.  I could not put this book down.

Cecily Ross, divorced from her mentally abuse husband, returns home to Canyon, Texas hoping to find peace and a way to fix herself.  Thinking she never met the beauty standards the media sells women, Cecily has a wealth of self-confidence and emotional issues.  Returning homes supposed to help her center and heal emotionally;  things do not always work out as we hope. However, with her father at her back, a support group led by an awesome woman, an old friend at her side, and maybe a little romance, Cecily may just change her life.   Come with Cecily and friends on their journey of revelation and renewal.   My reviews for psychological woman’s romance fiction novel, Looking Glass Lies, follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Talk about an emotional roller coaster; Looking Glass Lies has it in spades.  Filled with drama, emotional turmoil, self-destructive behavior, and the jaundice view the media gives women of themselves, Looking Glass Lies grabs the reader immediately and never let’s go.  Every woman who has ever looked in the mirror and seen ugly, imperfection, or compared herself to the latest stick thin model, should read this novel.  Denman faces these issues head-on and takes off running.  She masterfully impresses on the reader to see their true self;  stop listening to the media who’s only interested in
