I purchased this book when it was released last October and then I purchased it on its re-release. It has been re-edited and has a new publisher.

When a car crash wipes out his wife and daughter, the protagonist feels that he cannot go on. Turning to drink all he wants to do is end his life and join his family. However, something has other plans, and we follow him as he tackles his addiction, whilst protecting his soul and learning how to live again.

From the first chapter, you can feel his grief, his emotions are raw and I could understand why he turned to drink. It did not matter what state he was in, you could feel the love he had for his family and that one simple phrase” You must live! Live for momma, live for me and most importantly you must live for yourself” was his mantra to fight and heal himself. When the hauntings began, he became stronger, whilst he still wanted to die, he became more assertive, to the point of him coming more argumentative with the entity.

The author had a way of building up the mystery of the entity, even with the history of the haunting, you do not understand it full until the end of the book. The descriptive way this book is written takes you on an emotional ride and you feel like you are living his grief with him. The attacks are graphic which shows how evil this being is, with each attack, you know that it cannot carry on but the final twist in the book brings this story to a dramatic end. A good read that will have you gripped from the beginning
