After his father's untimely death sends fifteen-year-old Ryan McIntyre into an emotional tailspin, his mother enrolls him in St. Isaac's Catholic boarding school, hoping the venerable institution with a reputation for transforming wayward teens can work its magic on her son. But troubles are not unknown even at St. Isaac, where Ryan arrives to find the school awash in news of one student's violent death, another's mysterious disappearance, and growing incidents of disturbing behavior within the hallowed halls.Things begin to change when Father Sebastian joins the faculty. Armed with unprecedented knowledge and uncanny skills acquired through years of secret study, the young priest has been dispatched on an extraordinary and controversial mission: to prove the power of one of the Church's most arcane sacred rituals, exorcism. Willing or not, St. Isaac's most troubled students will be pawns in Father Sebastian's one-man war against evil--a war so surprisingly effective that the pope himself takes notice of the seemingly miraculous events unfolding an ocean away.But Ryan, drawn ever more deeply into Father Sebastian's ministrations, sees--and knows--otherwise. As he witnesses with mounting dread the transformations of his fellow pupils, his certainty grows that forces of darkness, not divinity, are at work. Evil is not being cast out...something else is being called forth. Something that hasn't stirred since the Inquisition's reign of terror. Something nurtured through the ages to do its vengeful masters' unholy bidding. Something whose hour has finally come to bring hell unto earth.… (més)

Supernaturalism isn't usually realistic, but this "thriller" takes way too many liberties with plausibility. Characters and plot lines come and go. What happened to Fr. Sabastian and the entire plot reading the Muslim attempt to assassinate the Pope?? ( )

I've been a fan of John Saul since The Homing, but this was just lame and cliche. Very disappointing. Makes me want to read The Homing again to see if it was as good as I thought when I was in my early twenties. Hmm.. ( )

A real page turner! I found this book easy to read and loose myself in. It had some graphic parts that were gross, but that was part of its charm. I have suggested this novel to a bunch of people and can't wait to hear what they think as well. Loved it! ( )

I am just a lover of John Saul and his books. I think he is wonderful writer and knows how to keep the reader interested. ( )

Had a lot of potential, but fell a bit flat for me. There's no giving anything away when I say that it ends with almost literally "he knew everything was going to be all right." I mean, come on. I can write a better ending than that. ( )
