Everybody has a secret. Some are darker than others.
This is the true story of a father reunited with his young son. He discovers, over time, that the boy’s mind is fractured into more than 400 multiple personalities that protect his secrets. The family’s lives are threatened when they discover he is also possessed by demons that seek to destroy them. The boy’s mother offered her son up to a satanic cult and to abuses so horrific that they seem more like fiction than reality.
How does this happen to a God-fearing family, and how do they deal with what is revealed to them? A young boy’s secrets could destroy this family, or, at the very least, bring it to its knees.
When the O’Neal family is threatened by mysterious forces, cultic rituals, and a labyrinth of obstacles, they find out how far they will go and how hard they will fight to save one of their own and themselves in the ultimate, real life battle of good verses evil.

I enjoyed reading this book. The story flowed well, and I was often wondering what would happen next. The story was not as intense on suspense, however. I was waiting to reach a climax, but the “fear” was not really raised, as with horror stories. There was no breaking point where I felt compelled to keep reading to find the resolution. In fact, the story just sort of ended with not much of a conclusion to the “battle” between good and evil. I appreciate the brief afterward, but that part of the book was, also, missing closure for the story. I am a “Doubting Thomas” when it comes to non-fiction. Many stories embellish the facts in order to make it a better story to tell. Authors strengthen my bias when they preface the story with an excerpt that informs the reader that they will not be able to collaborate any detail of the story they are about to read. “This is true, but I won’t prove it. Just take my word.” Also, although I believe in a God and Devil, but I doubt that evil exists in... More > the form of actual possessions or manifestations. I think that a person experiencing tough mental difficulties rationalizes these troubles as demons through their subconscious. The demons are real constructs of the mind, not reality, but the victims cannot distinguish the difference. They are not really lying; they just create an alternate reality (very similar to MPS). This story should have lead me to question this theory, but it was filled with too many holes to think otherwise. I will explain why in the following, but I do want to emphasize that it was entertaining and it kept me interested. Unfortunately, it did not seem to be anything more than a lighter version of Hollywood, with less of a story climax or resolution. SPOILER ALERT: The story starts with Sean performing an exorcism/redemption for a repenting Satanist. Already ironic, but why would the minister who asks for Sean’s assistance in such matters then accuse him of being a Satanic follower and “kick him out” of the congregation. It seemed too fictitious. Furthermore, why would they never seek assistance from clergy (regardless of religion), but they did seek help from a therapist, briefly? The author says Sean did express much anger at the cult that was responsible for this situation, but he was so enraged that he did nothing but clenches his fists and seeks out an old HS friend who happened to be member of the cult, too. (This is another implausible coincidence that did not add strength to the accuracy of the story).< Less
