Excellent read. Must read if you have seen the movie. There have been many liberties taken when filming the movie.

Vibrant, youthful, and a grandmother at forty-two, Maggie O'Connor has lovingly raised her drug-addicted daughter's child ever since the newborn appeared on her doorstep three years ago. But when little Cody is kidnapped and sequestered inside a satanic cult, Maggie's world is shattered by unimaginable evil. Drawing strength from the bond she shares with her granddaughter, Maggie vows to fight anyone and everyone who dares to claim this child for themselves.
Even the devil.

Praised for creating fiction that "will keep you turning pages night after night" (The Dallas Morning News), bestselling author Cathy Cash Spellman imagines a terrifying realm of devilish menace in a novel that will touch your heart -- and chill you to the bone.

"Having seen the movie before reading the book. I was prepared for a cutthroat struggle between good and evil. The material presented in the book, however is so much more multi-layered than the movie, it is almost a crime to allow the movie to have the same title.

Like the movie, the story revolves around the bond between Maggie and her granddaughter, Cody. Severed by the child's abduction by her mother and her new spouse, the bond triggers past life experiences to both Maggie and the child. Distraught, when she discovers that her daughter's spouse is the head of a Satanic cult and is going to use the child for some nefarious purpose, Maggie seeks help wherever she can find it, and an eclectic posse of assistants does she amass: a former cult member, an adept in the occult, a confused Catholic priest, a love-sick police detective, and a wise martial arts sensei.

As Maggie strengthens herself spiritually for the task ahead, we the readers are privledged to share in her enlightenment without any affront to our own beliefs. All the great mysteries are touched upon and Ms. Spellman knowingly provides a collection of reading material at the end of the novel for those interested in furthering their own spiritual quests.

A very satisfying junket from start to finish..." amazon review

What if your drug addicted daughter left a newborn baby on your doorstep and disappeared? Whatb if she came back 3 years later and took the child into a satanic cult? Would you risk your soul to save her?The law wont back Maggie up but the exorcist priest believes, and the rabbi who practices Kaballah believes. But time is running out because everyone wants little Cody, even the Devil.
Good Book I liked it.

Mystery & mysticism; romance & reincarnation; suspense thriller with excorcisms and black magic... it gets a bit over-the-top at times, and yet it's seductive. If you have no patience at all with supernatural elements in fiction, you won't enjoy it -- it takes very little suspension of disbelief, however, to get sucked into the suspense.
