The basis of the story is fairly simple: in order to break a pact made with the devil 1,000 years ago by an ancestor, a family must locate 4 pieces of an ancient holy icon. The 1st piece was located in the 1st book of the series, and the hunt is on for the 2nd piece in this installment. While the story line has its merits (and screams "Sequels!"), the writing is atrocious. It seems like the writer is in such a hurry to get to the end of the book that she can't be bothered to write whole sentences. (Or complete ideas, for that matter.) There are no real surprises here - just standard stuff that might have been better had there been some apparent effort put into it.
