Format: Paperback
The first hundred pages or so of Abaddon, which was the subject of a ghost-writing contract with a ministry staffer (Cornerstone magazine printed an excerpt of that contract), was at least competent. But at that point, the writing style and quality changed abruptly. Most remarkable was the change in protagonist Wes Bryant's (Larson, as he wants the world to see him) personal characteristics, the appearance of pages of free-floating dialogue, and narrative having the dubious virtue of never having been tried (e.g., "He had taken Annette and Jennifer home, grabbed a can of V-8, and was driving like an Unser to be on time for his meeting...." [p. 192]).
If you were able to buy half the book, it might have even been worth it. Check the $1 rack of your local Christian used book store.

I really enjoyed the book. Especially when I was able to use it to make a friend (studying to be a psychiatrist) believe that I had MPD! True this is fiction, but some are real expiriences whether or not this man has expirienced them. While it seems laughable in it's extremity, it's not too far off should you isolate the events rather than lump them together. In any event, it makes for captivating reading. I have been reading it over and over again since I was about 12 (I first read it's prequel, Dead Air, when I was 10) and am reading it even now.

Even though this book is a bit dated, it has a compelling story line. It picks up a few years after Bob Larson's earlier book, Dead Air. Radio man, Wes Bryant, has married the heroine from the last book, Annette, and is now Jennifer's stepfather. He and his wife are noticing some strange behavior from their teenaged daughter, which they eventually learn is a latent result of the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father and his Satanic cult. Her fascination with a death metal music group leads Wes into unfamiliar ground, as he learns the power this group has over their fans is more than mere entertainment value.

The book is written in Larson's typical terse style, but seems a bit more polished than his previous book. It's written entirely from Wes' point of view. The author demonstrates a keen understanding of Satanism, death metal music and multiple personality disorder (MPD)--the main subjects of this book. Larson does oversimplify both MPD and deliverance. The second matter should never be entered into lightly--not without much prayer and fasting in advance.

The book moved rather frenetically toward the end, and its conclusion was extremely abrupt. I felt like the author left way too many loose ends--an unsolved murder, an attempted murder, and another individual who clearly suffered MPD, to name a few.

Because the author downplays both the ritualistic abuse and its consequences, this book might actually be a fairly decent introduction of the subject for young adults. Too many adults, for that matter, are clueless about SRA, MPD and related issues. Their children may be under the influence of any one of them, and they wouldn't even know it! For more in-depth reading material on MPD, read Dr. James Friesen's book, Uncovering the Mystery of MPD. For a great tome on deliverance, read Derek Prince's book, They Shall Expel Demons.

This wasn't as earthshattering as the first one was. I actually found it easier to follow in audiobook instead of reading the actual thing. Jennifer is now 15 years old, and Annette and Wes are married which is what I hoped for, but Jennifer is still chasing ghosts of her dead father, and this comes out when she gets into the gothic metal scene with the group Night Sacrifice. You would've thought that the move to Denver from Indiana would've helped Jennifer....you know get away from all those people who hurt her in the name of their cult The Dark Raven, but you can run, but you can't hide. Wes finds out, and of course now is the time to help Jennifer break free once, and for all, but his new-found faith is going to be tested as well as his love for Annette, and Jennifer as they introduce the Disassociative Personality Disorder. As Jennifer has alter egos that must be put to rest....not to mention breaking Jennifer free from the grip of death metal. Wes has a new team of people helping him as his new son-in-law a former seminary student turned police officer, and a psychologist who's a committed Christian, and deals with Multiple Personalities. I guess this series is a little too heady for Christians as they don't want to deal with the dark side of life, and just wrap themselves in a cocoon of focusing on Jesus. However, that doesn't help you grow as a Christian because this is still a fallen world, and God expects us to be rays of light in this dark world. It reminds me of the night when at a Christian singles meeting the subject of AIDS came up, and how Christians were suppossed to care for those who have AIDS.Read more ›
