This book....can't really be called book, should be a novella, a prequel to the first book, because even though I enjoyed it, it didn't go anywhere!I really liked the whole exorcism bit, it was creepy, reminded me of the movie The Exorcism of Emily Rose, because of the way they acted when they were possessed, the rituals, the chanting. This all felt more like an introduction to the 'family business'. They don't explain the rituals, what each one is for, how they are different, nor what exactly is in their cases and what each item is for. We at least find out what the bell is for. Makes me not want to ring bells now, just in case :P There was even subtle character growth in Mia, but by the end NOTHING was resolved. I'll still keep an eye out for the next in line. I am hoping things at least get explained.
