He shall come by counterfeit means and obtain the Kingdom of flatteries. Armies shall be swept away before him and broken Without warning he shall come into the richest parts; and he shall do what neither his fathers nor his fathers fathers have done, scattering among the people plunder, spoils, and goods.
He shall devise plans against strongholds, he shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every God, and shall speak astonishing things against the God of Gods. He shall prosper until the indignation is accomplished, for what is determined shall be done. Jeremy Thorn and his wife Katherine have been struggling to conceive. Katherine teeters on the edge of the precipice of insanity. They believe that if only they could have a child it would give Katherine something more to focus on than her own unhappiness.
They have miscarried a couple of times and now finally a pregnancy is coming to term. Katherine is hospitalized in the 8th month and the fears of losing yet another child are gnawing at their already shattered nerves. She loses the child…but wait. A child is presented to Thorn. Thorn overwhelmed with emotions and realizing what losing another child will do to his wife I could almost hear the whisk whisk of the priest rubbing his hands together with satisfaction over another bargain made.
The child is in place. His name is Damien. Those moments when their head starts spinning around on their shoulders and for a moment I am amused and even enthralled Sam and Dean are on my speed dial.
Damien is an odd little fellow. A Mrs. Blaylock appears and declares herself the new nanny. Jeremy and Katherine are suspicious, but not suspicious enough.
He has much to atone for. He has very little time to convince Thorn that his son is not what he seems or actually that he is exactly what he seems. The forces around Damien are starting to circle Tassone. Jeremy soon finds himself on his way to Rome hoping for answers to explain what and who Damien is. What bargain did he really make with Father Spilletto? Who are those people in the grave North of Rome protected by dogs that could have stepped out of the script of a Resident Evil movie?
Then another appeared, and another, the cemetery coming alive with motion as the darkened figures emerged from everywhere, a pack of at least ten, insane and ravenous, their mouths dripping in a continual drool. The dying words of a priest send Thorn to Jerusalem to track down a man named Bugenhagen, the last of a long line of exorcists.
He is living underground at the heart of the beginning of Christianity in the City of Jezreel, town of Meggido. It is the only place where he is safe. He explains to Thorn what he must do. I will certainly be on the look out for signs of the Diabolical Trinity. If your children or your grandchildren are born with a full head of hair find a reason to shave their head and look for a trinity of numbers that will send a shiver down to your toes This is another entry in my s nostalgic horror tour.
