Years later the friends opened the door to evil using the charm as a piece in a game and the attacks begin, stomach wrenching as they are targeted and the priests are trying to come to terms with their faith, They are the weak link and need to accept their faith or be destroyed. There are scenes like the demonic movie and the possession of being taken and committing horrific acts of criminal acts and not remembering what happen then to come to the realization of the brutality they committed. There are other scenes the reader should prepare themselves for.
The plot deserves four stars but the editing needs work a Spanish translation into English. It is very graphic and should be read by 18 years and older. It has potential as it examines through fantasy the beliefs of religious beliefs, true or false. It has a purpose to open the human mind to the possibility of what if and now it the time to explore what you believe in. For if evil is real then this author is knowledgeable or has an very imaginative mind of understanding the powers of the unseen and in a very graphic style of writing an entertaining tale. Full with chills and suspense trying to warn or attract readers to this story or truths.
I don't just choose books at random, this one was calling me because there are hidden messages in it just as the words in the Bible. Or it is a horror flick write in a book, either way I would recommend it for a break, make sure you have a full glass of water by your side to re-hydrate as you gasp at the twisted plot.
The first thing I noticed about this novel was the awkward formatting. Originally published in Venezuela, perhaps this is a lost in translation issue. The dialogue is stilted and breaks the flow of the narrative. It's extremely difficult to follow conversations and the dialogue actually hinders the story. There were many times when I had to re-read portions in order to keep track of the characters.
As with many Satanic/ demonic stories, this tale rests on Christian motifs. It's the classic religious battle between good and evil. It opens with Biblical quotes and the characters look to a Christian God for safety, mercy, and strength throughout. There's Catholic imagery of saints, icons, and priests fighting the growing evil. The novel's climax hints at angels, heavenly beings, and an all-powerful God in the afterlife. From The Exorcist to Rosemary's Baby, this is all material we've seen before.
In the search for the perfect monster, Satan is not it. The religion is too heavy-handed. It's preachy at its worst and repetitious at its best. The Evil Visitor falls into all the Satan traps -- the evils of war raising demons, possessed babies spitting black bile, and the cover up in the end. We need monsters for the twenty-first century, not the 1300's.
