Product Description

A demon, a past life bargain, and one week to stop a possession...

Scarlet Wakebridge-Rosé, busy executive and less-than-stellar mother and wife, has a problem that only an exorcist can solve. Except she’s not precisely a devout Catholic parishioner any longer, and to gain assistance from the Church means telling a whopping lie of omission.

Fortunately, she discovers Father Angelo Ambrosio, whose commitment to helping the afflicted means he’s willing to overlook the things Scarlet prefers to keep hidden. Unfortunately, his sordid past keeps him under a microscope with the bishop, who’s not so liberal in his views.

But the demon harassing Scarlet is relentless. It makes its motives clear: in a previous life, she struck a bargain, promising it her body on her fiftieth birthday. Now, she and Angelo must unravel the mystery surrounding her forgotten past in order to stop the possession by next week or risk losing her to the depths of Hell forever.

This stand-alone novel set in the Fallen Redemption universe extends the series to modern day. Enter a world where humans reincarnate, demons interfere in daily life, and the currents of fate carry us all to our destinies.

Scarlet is plagued with a demon but has fallen out with the church, because of her same sex marriage, so the only person she can find to help her is a priest, Father Angelo Ambrosio, whose views are a little more lenient regarding sexuality. Now the race is on to figure out how, when, and why the demon wants Scarlet. This is a very well written story set in the Falling Redemption universe where the lines of good and evil can be a bit blurred. It is very realistic and the fast pace, plot twists, and character interactions make it very hard to put down!

Did not expect that end, but I think it worked. Really seriously enjoyed the heck out of this book. Will have to read the rest of the series.
3.0 out of 5 stars If not for that ending... April 17 2017
By Tracet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved parts of this book. Scarlet was a marvelous character – a woman of common sense who spends idiotic amounts of money on shoes and purses (her Louboutins are mentioned several times); a lesbian who is not defined by that tag; a wife and mother who has been very good at both those jobs in the past but has faltered lately; an apparent workaholic who does not hesitate to kick her work responsibilities to the curb when more important things – like her life, and those of her wife and daughter – come to the fore.

That last is something I've seen done very badly in the past. A non–millionaire character has to have a job in order to provide grounding for the nuts and bolts of her life, but when the events of the plot pick up she ignores that job with absolutely no regard for what will happen when everything's over. I kind of understand an author forgetting about how a character is going to pay for her home when she gets fired because she was busy dealing with a demon – but, living paycheck to paycheck as I have as often as I have, I have a hard time swallowing the character forgetting. And Scarlet doesn't forget. She probably wouldn't have a money problem for a while (failing all else she could always sell the Louboutins; one pair would almost pay my rent for a month), but she does have a position of responsibility, and she is shown to give consideration to that fact. It's a small thing, takes only a paragraph if that – and it grounds the character and allows me to keep believing in her as a human being.

I mentioned above too that Scarlet is a lesbian without necessarily being the poster child for lesbians. She's a woman who happens to be married to another woman. This circumstance is not waved like a banner; the only impact that her gender orientation has on her presentation as a character is that it colors her interaction with and anticipation of her interaction with the Catholic Church – the reader is not battered with this aspect of her life any more than with the fact that she's black, or almost fifty, or whatever her job is. And … well, isn't that kind of the way things should be, that gender orientation, while important, is not what should determine how someone is treated or perceived? I really enjoyed Scarlet's relationship with her wife.

There are a few things, though, that I didn't enjoy as much. Kelton, the assistant in the exorcism game, was almost a complicated character. As stolidly prejudiced against Scarlet as the most clichéd of Catholics (and, seriously, it is a cliché that writers should be ashamed to lean on), he is devoted to the priest, he lets his strong convictions cancel out any compassion or impulse to duty he might feel – and he has his secrets. Come to find out, he is in an apparently abusive relationship with his wife. To be clear, she seems to be abusing him. This could have been a really interesting thing to explore, even if only as a B-plot (or C-plot) … but it isn't. Even a chapter – or even part of a chapter – more digging into that situation would have been great – but no.

And, finally, the resolution of the plot bothered me a great deal. It wasn't Scarlet's fate that bothered me, though - that worked. Without spoilers, the way this book was fitted into the author's universe was, I felt, unfortunate. The story of Scarlet's impending possession was fascinating – until the end and the revelation of more information, at which point I just got annoyed. And the whole "Fearmorph" thing annoyed me even more – after the serious jeopardy throughout the whole book, this just sounded silly.

Up until the last few chapters, I was all in. I had a great time. But that resolution undid a lot of it. Pity.

The usual disclaimer: I received this book via Netgalley for review.
4.0 out of 5 stars horror-based, slow-moving tale of the nuances of evil in the context of multiple lives at the crossroads of magic/catholicism Feb. 23 2017
By kbirdlincoln - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I requested a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I have to admit, the cover TOTALLY drew me in. What a gorgeous cover, and what a tantalizing title.

I love multi-ethnic urban fantasy and from the cover blurb, was thinking that is what this would be. However, it wasn't quite what I expected-- not so much an urban fantasy as a horror-based, slow-moving exploration of the nuances of evil in the context of multiple lives at the crossroads of magic and Catholicism.

The titular heroine has felt haunted her whole life an oily, evil shadow. She is facing growing relationship issues with her wife and teenage daughter and decides to turn to exorcist Father Angelo for help.

She is drawn into several exorcisms, but also begins to discover the thing that is haunting her has had her in its clutches before, and intends to use her current life as a way to torture her and her family. Meanwhile, Father Angelo has to come to grips with his dark-magic past and estranged relationship with a former mentor who may be Scarlet's only hope.

The book's pacing is a bit uneven-- the beginning is a slow dance between Scarlet and Angelo and the Catholic church and what it will permit. Lots of layers of what is "sin" and "evil" etc.

The last third of the book gets quite Exorcist-tastic. Lots of creepy blood and mayhem and horror. I felt a little frustrated in that I felt we were getting a peek at some truly intriguing characters (Angelo's former mentor, a surprise visit at the end only hinted at throughout the book) but weren't provided enough emotional fodder to appreciate their awesomeness. About halfway into the book, I realized "companion novel" was printed right there on the cover, and suspected that reading the whole series would give me access to the full emotional richness of the complicated relationships we just barely glimpse the outline of in this book.

This glimpse is enough to make me head over to Amazon to go read the blurbs and reviews of the main series to consider buying it.
