These books are very much like the Walking Dead in the sense that they cover one big story. There are events that take place that make this an interesting read but if you haven't read the previous books you are going to be lost. So I will treat this like on off the Walking Dead books reviews. If you haven't read the previous book there will be spoilers but if you have read the other two and not this one, I will not spoil anything.
Ok, so this book picks up right after the second one leaves off. Kyle's sister has become possessed by a demon and her husband packs up their daughter and goes to ask Kyle for help. This is a huge step for him because he has hated Kyle from the very beginning, so to swallow his pride and ask for help is huge character wise. Kyle grabs Reverend Anderson and they head over to try to save his sister before it's to late. This is really only the beginning of the book but probably the biggest part of the story. At least it was for me. The rest of the book delves into Kyle's hunt for answers which we get a little bit more but not much.
That is the one thing that irritates me a bit about these books. We still have no idea what the Outcast is other than Kyle is one of many. After 3 books I had really hoped for a better understanding of what the Outcast is already. Still I have to create my own meanings and wait to see if I'm right in future books. For the rest of the book I do love this series. It is all thanks to the show on Cinemax. I was on the fence after reading book one but the show renewed my interest and I flew through this book.
If you are a fan of the supernatural and good character development I would highly recommend this book. I really liked this and it only makes me wish I had the next volume right now. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. I am also going to include this in my R.I.P. challenge. This is my first review in the peril in the first and what a way to kick this challenge off.
