"Everything about this is strange."
We alternate from Trish's point of view, to Paul and his son (in training), Danny. The thing that bothers me the most, is that these sets of characters don't get together until approximately 60% into the novel.
It felt to me as if the majority of the first half was mainly focused on Trish noticing the "uncanny" way Seth is behaving (which his brother doesn't seem to sense at all), and the nightmares she has about him.
". . . She wasn't crazy (of course, truly crazy people never thought they were crazy) . . . "
I felt that Seth's character was the most interesting by far, and yet he really didn't physically "do" much aside from a couple scenes in the very beginning.
". . . I went looking for something and I found it."
The demonic possession and backstory to this novel were the high points, in my opinion. Yet, there was one character I felt I should have remembered from the first book in this series, but couldn't recall. I really don't see this as a fault of the author so much as it simply fell into the trap of many "second books" in a trilogy. Technically, this is continuing on with the main plot that began in Book one, yet it needs to be able to stand on its own as well as move the central plot forward to the next book. In my personal opinion, many of these second books are much less fulfilling and feel like more of a "place holder" to tide readers over until the grand finale--the third book expected to tie everything together in the end.
"We all wish we would have done things earlier . . . Done things differently."
Overall, I still enjoyed the established characters from Book one, but wish they had made a stronger impact earlier in the story. Also, given the fact that many/most readers will have read other books in between the publishing dates of these, I think it could have benefitted by a bit more recounting of some of the important people/situations from Book one that are brought back--or even referenced--in this second book. While there was a conclusion to the problem focused on here, because of the "set up" and foreshadowing of a third book, I somehow felt as if it was left . . . unfinished . . . .
Of course, those that read this shortly after the first Exorcist's Assistant, will probably be less likely to encounter the issues I had. I'm going with a three star-rating because I really enjoyed having the idea that began in Book one expanded upon. Unfortunately, I didn't feel that this book had quite the same impact as the first. However, I attribute much of that to the year apart in my reading each.
Some things I missed in this novel that I would've enjoyed were:
1)Perhaps a longer timeline between this and the first novel in which we learn that Danny has been working to hone his powers so that his control of Azazel doesn't seem so forced considering he's a novice.
2)A more thoughtful and engaging examination and cultivation of Danny and Paul's relationship.
Overall, I would certainly recommend the book and I do look forward to the third one in the series.
