The quality of writing is not what I expected. The author was using British terms and spellings – which I am familiar with from reading other texts – however, there were some grammatical errors and also spelling errors that seemed blatant. Also, I was a little bit surprised that when referring to God, the words "he" and "him" were lowercase. I'm not sure if this was an editor's slip, or if the reverential capitalization was completely ignored by the author for a reason.
Aside from these errors, I did not feel a deep connection to any of the characters which, to me, speaks to the lack of character development. Kate and Ollie are the central characters, but their romance felt forced and trite. Both have had rough lives and great potential to be round characters, but they never quite got there. Joe is a young, Xbox-playing, beer drinking, cursing priest who communicates with the dead. Interesting characterization choices, but to me it just didn't mesh.
Kate has two daughters, ages 11 and (maybe) 9. When she took them shopping to pick out bedding for the bedroom in her new house, they supposedly picked out dinosaur bedding. I have two daughters close to those ages as well, and they would both die if I bought such childish bedding. That aspect was a little unbelievable.
I am a lover of words and always enjoy new comparisons and descriptions. I felt this book was lacking. Many times the same words or phrases were used multiple times. This became predictable and boring.
The climax where the characters join forces and banish the Demon was VERY short. Anticlimactic. I was looking forward to a great battle, and there was none. It was more like "Let's all hold hands and let the bright light banish the season." What?!?!
Overall, interesting concept, not so great execution.
