In book 2, Tabby receives a "fleshing rod" from the Devil, but it takes a curious little girl with a love for pizza, to give the wand a try creating a body from which she can once again taste earthly pleasures. For Lucy, the luxury doesn't last long. The body dies putting her through hell and leaving one heck of a spot on the living room rug. Not only does Lucy's recreated form die but her flesh and blood body who still resides with her father meets her demise as well. When Doc Holliday tells Jimmy of Lucy's troubles, Jimmy discovers that Lucy already knows her body died and her mother killed herself over the loss of her little girl. Jimmy is left again to wonder just who and what Lucy is.
The Order sends Jimmy to Exorcist School in Rome and since Doc Holliday can't cross the ocean Jimmy must take Lucy with him. When they arrive in Rome Jimmy discovers someone has usurped his wishes and Lucy comes with more baggage than he originally thought. When he returns home, Tabby is changed in more ways than he can imagine. The devil himself reinserts himself into Jimmy's life with a plethora of tricks and traps that Jimmy must walk through without blowing up himself and those he loves. With Tabby's familiar cat, a house protected with charms against evil doers, something or someone can still get in.
Once again DeVor hits a home run with a novel that will capture your attention and steal your time. Sorrow's Turn, like the other 2 books in the series forces your attention away from the real world and directs it into DeVor's universe where exorcists fight the unseen world. DeVor's talent for storytelling comes alive on the printed page. Sorrow's Turn has a quick pace and DeVor's writing makes the novel an easy read that you can loose yourself in. The editing is well done and DeVor's ability to wrap you into her work is superb.
Since I am a firm believer in eating and drinking while reading, I recommend Scheid Vineyards Claret Reserve 2010 Red Wine from California along with some Belgian Bulk Dark Chocolate Couverture King of the Belgians to ease the passage into unseen worlds.
Profiter de l'obscurité!
The author has written an excellent horror novel. Besides the horror, there are demons, the devil, ghosts and spooky going-ons. While it is scared, there are moments of humor in this novel. I like how she "messes up" the characters in this book as it adds to the story. I didn't read the previous volumes but was still able to enjoy reading this. I will be going back to the previous books as I think that she will become a favorite author for me.
Disclaimer: I received an arc of this book free from the author/publisher from Net-galley. I was not obliged to write a favorable review, or even any review at all. The opinions expressed are strictly my own.
The central conflict in the series is within Jimmy himself. He has learned to his never-ending bewilderment that he is a “marker,” which means he possesses the power to save souls from eternal damnation by MARKING them. And if that isn’t bad enough, he’s learned there exists an Order of Markers. And these boys don’t really have much of a sense of humor. Though he continues to do the right thing by confronting demons as they possess people, he’s not too happy about it and, sometimes, wishes he could simply hide and eat chocolate. What, no rotgut whiskey?
SORROW’S TURN is a very entertaining read. If you like paranormal stories with some pretty crazy twists, I suggest you start with the first book. I wouldn’t call Jimmy’s life a roller coaster exactly. It’s more like the funhouse in an abandoned amusement park. You really don’t want to continue forward, but you’re too scared to go back the way you came.
