Brynn the Exorcist is book 1 in a series currently being written. It introduces the characters Brynn Duvaine and Anthony Russo to the reader. Brynn is a psychologist working with victims of the worst sorts of violence from their childhoods. Anthony is a pastor suffering from the worst sort of disease any person of god can suffer, Vanity.
I came to like Brynn right away. She's a strong female lead who begins as a skeptic about anything slightly out of the normal. Making it harder is that the forces of evil try to encourage that skepticism. Sometimes it takes great willpower and some divine assistance to rise above it. Once she overcomes that skepticism, she proceeds with devout determination and courage. Brynn suffers and has doubts, as all people do, but she pushes through and does what she believes to be right. She is a true heroine who I came to feel a connection to.
Pastor Anthony goes through moments where he believes himself to be brilliant and moments where he believes himself to be a failure. There is much more happening behind the scenes that the author hasn't told us yet though. I believe there will be more revealed in future books.
My favorite characters are the demons that possess us innocent humans. I'm totally claiming possession the next time my wife blames me for something. ;) But the demons are delightfully evil and each has its own twist. If anything, they could be even more vile, as could Lilith. I occasionally wished I could be even more frightened.
On the negative side. I didn't like the husband at all. He didn't seem to have a lot of redeeming qualities, and the ones he did have, he lost sight of along the way. Also, there were a few instances where I was told a conversation, or something else happened, but I think it would have been better to read about it while it happened. The last thing was some mild head hopping between characters without a *** break in perspective. It either wasn't too terrible, or I'm just becoming use to it in books these days. None of the negatives were enough to detract from a superb story that was well-written and well edited. :)
I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys horror, especially with demons. There is heavy Christian revelation and enlightenment, but it's very thoughtful and adds to the story rather than detracting.
