The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist
Bookreview / July 5, 2016

The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist was first brought to my attention when I saw the movie of the same name with Anthony Hopkins in one of the lead roles. Now I have always been fascinated with religion and exorcisms so of course I had to read this book. Matt Baglio did a great job in writing this. It describes the life of an American priest who is sent to Rome to take a course in exorcism at the Vatican.

When he started the course he was a non believer, believing that no person could ever be possessed by the Devil or anyone else.

Key To His Heart is the new novel by Trina Solet and is all about the budding love between a manager and his young assistant. Forbidden because of work ethics, but unstoppable in the end.
