Publisher's Summary

Deep in a deserted forest, a coven of witches is taken by surprise as they attempt to summon the Dark Lord, Anubin, from the spirit world.
At his Easter camp, young Gilbert Hawkins has an amazing divine encounter. However, as the subsequent years pass, he and his girlfriend find themselves increasingly the subject of demonic visitations. What is the connection between these seemingly isolated events, over 300 years apart? As the angelic forces of good and evil clash, the disturbing nature of the mystery gradually emerges. Can the dark servants of Anubin be prevented from obtaining for him the power he so desperately seeks - the power that comes from the black talisman?

The story went from the 1800s to 1980s. I'm not big on time changes. But the story of black arts and ghostly goings on was good.
The narrator kept the tone going and was very good.

Fantastic narration - ok story

This was quite a short audiobook with a mythical, supernatural plot involving demons, angels, witches etc. There were two plot lines, one starting in the early eighties and the other in 1673, which come together in the end.
It was an ok story but never really gripped me. Partly, I think, this is due to the fact that it was too heavy on religion for my taste. I was expecting something scarier and more twisted, but the plot just fizzled out in the end. Much preferred Mr. Storry's debut novel, The Cryptic Lines, to this one.

The narration by Jake Urry was as stellar as ever. His voice is really suited to these dark, mythical stories. But he also did a great job of portraying Monica, the young female protagonist, who sounded very believable. And who knew he could sing as well?!

I chose to listen to this audiobook provided by the narrator and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
