Title: The Everett Exorcism (World of Shadows Book 1)
Author: Lincoln Cole
Genre: Supernatural, Horror, Occult
Something strange is happening in the city of Everett, Washington and Father Niccolo Paladina is tasked with investigating possible demonic activity. Nothing is as it seems, however, and things quickly begin spiraling out of his control.
When his path crosses with that of an old rival, they discover that things are worse in Everett than either of them could ever have imagined. As his world collapses around him, Niccolo will be left with one terrible question: what is my faith worth?
When faced with absolute evil, will your disbelief save you?
Father Niccolo Paladina is sent to Everett, WA to examine the reported demonic happenings. Niccolo is a holy man and doesn’t believe in such nonsense. He’ll admit strange things are happening that he has no explanation for but demons? No. When the residents of Everett begin to act bizarrely and demon hunter Arthur Vangeest arrives, Niccolo must come to grips with the truth. Demons are real and Everett is about to feel the wrath of absolute evil. Can Niccolo and Arthur defeat the demon or is this just the beginning?
I was so excited to hear that Lincoln Cole was writing a prequel series to the World on Fire series. I’ve been fascinated by Arthur and what he was like before his venture to Hell as well as Father Niccolo Paladina while reading the World on Fire series. The Everett Exorcism doesn’t disappoint and in fact, is in many ways better than the World on Fire series.
Cole grabs the reader from the get-go with his fast-moving action, intense drama and descriptive narration. He plunges the reader in the middle of all that is going on while making sure you know what’s happening. I connected instantly with Father Niccolo. What I loved most was Cole’s gift for foreshadowing. He only reveals what you need to know at the time, thus allowing the reader to gasp a loud at certain plot twists. Brilliant!
A must read and I can’t wait to read book two!
