The Dark Exorcist by Tim Miller Book Review


By Tim Miller

Blurb
Peter Roman is a police officer on what should be a typical disturbance call. He encounters a teenage girl who is anything but typical. Her level of strength and violence surpasses some of the strongest suspects he's encountered. Father Pierce is a hospital chaplain who despite his lack of belief in the supernatural, is forced to stare down the pure evil within the girl. Father Dietrich Harlan is a seasoned priest and Vatican trained Exorcist who gets called in to save the young woman and restore order to the hospital. In one night, these men will come face to face with a demon who reveals to them their own demons. How can a group of flawed individuals defeat a being so powerful? Only by defeating their own monsters will they survive the night.

If you loved the original Exorcist I can guarantee you will love this one as its far better...(yes I did say better ). 
This is a fast moving read right from the very first page. As a film you will be hiding behind the cushion and jumping at every sound; it will make you think "What was that noise" you just heard. Just make sure you read it with at least 1 light on, it almost creeped me out...I said almost...after 30 years of reading horror that's unusual for me to get creeped. ;-)

So back to my review...it was a fab fast paced read with deep dark demonic twists. Tim's creative flow allows you to see clearly what is happening without too much imagination. My only niggle at the beginning was the constant jumping from one characters point of view to another, it took me awhile to get used to this style of reading but it does add to the storyline well.
I loved the main character Officer Roman who is so believable and relatable and is simply a nice guy with a dodgy past. The main story covers 2 nights as he is supposedly called out to calm down a druggie wild female teen who is actually possessed; she creates horror and havoc in and around the psych ward of a main hospital.
Vatican trained Father Pierce has been called to exorcise the demon from her and once he arrives things go from bad to worse, as the demon invades the minds of those trying to stop him; reminding of those awful things they have done in their past. 
Tim really has created a monster through his words as you can feel the demons power as he controls not only peoples minds but their bodies too and in doing so we see murder, gore, horror and suspense by the bucketload.
Tim isn't scared to kill off the characters in many horrific ways. This sadistic, violent read wont be everyone's taste so don't read if easily scared and offended, as it comes across VERY realistic and very believable. The action is gripping and you wont be able to put this book down and can easily read this in 1 or 2 sittings.
Keeps you guessing with lots of twists till the very brilliant end and I cant wait to read more from Tim.
Film possibilities for the future which is exciting news; well done Tim I cant wait to see this...with my lights on and a big cushion to hide behind.
