Plot
(by Goodreads)

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.

Genre(s): Horror, Dark Fantasy, Lesbian
Series: n.a.

Teaser


Even with the presence hovering at her elbow, Scarlet almost regretted giving her contact details to Kelton. But Father Angelo was polite on the phone, a stark contrast to his strange assistant. She agreed to meet him at the church on Friday after work. She didn’t even have to lie to Eve, who was out of town on business.


My Opinion

This book introduces you to Scarlet and the presence that follows her. Her search for helps leads her to Father Angelo, his strange assistant Kelton, and finally she also meets the mysterious Dante.

With The Impending Possession of Scarlet Wakebridge-Rosé, S.L. Saboviec has created a remarkable dark fantasy tale. It is a very dark read with gory details; you can feel Scarlet’s despair. The main characters are complex, the other characters are of sufficient depth. S.L. Saboviec draws you close to the events – sometimes too close for comfort. I was drawn pretty close to Scarlet, Father Angelo, and Dante. The plot lines grow together nicely, keeping the reader hooked until and including the finale.

This is a book for you if you like dark urban fantasy and do not shy away from evil demons.

Recommended.
