Description from Author:

An innocent family finds itself completely helpless against the sudden onset of paranormal activity in their quiet rural home. A knife embedded in a kitchen cupboard, crockery smashed by invisible hands, and blood-chilling growls emit from thin air. Caroline and her husband Neil search for answers as they try to protect their family from the unseen entity that seems determined to rip them apart.
The biggest question looms over them like a dark cloud … who is going to help us? There are emergency services for many things, but not of this nature. It might be easier to believe temporary insanity, if not for the vast amount of witnesses. Police, fire services, mediums, priests and investigators all become embroiled in the mystery. The family struggles to cope, and Caroline grows concerned for her husband’s failing health as he withdraws from the world. However, the entity has only just begun.
Paranormal Intruder is the true story of one family’s brave fight against an invisible entity. Described as one of the best-documented cases of paranormal activity, this page turning book will stay with you long after you have finished reading it.

My Review:

This is one of the most thrilling, best documented paranormal cases I have been privy to read about. It is frightening and engaging. Caroline reached out to me to review your book, and I can say that I am incredibly happy she did so. 

I read every “true” paranormal story with an investigator’s eye. Having been a paranormal investigator for many years, and working a case so incredibly similar to this one, I could not turn away until I finished the book. 

Caroline, a respected police woman in the UK, found herself in the middle of a demonic force that tore her family apart. Caroline’s recount of the events was so intriguing, but so very spooky, I found myself praying after I finished the book. If the family could be so easily susceptible after her husband, Neil, dabbled with an Ouija board as a child and began watching paranormal programming as an adult, I know that I did not want to leave myself vulnerable either.

One of the strongest things I found in the book was the end chapters with actual accounts by family and friends who bore witness to the events first hand. I believe that this can only lend more credibility to the book. Caroline had witnesses from both the police force and fire department. Fellow police officers witnessed the chaos that consumed the author’s home.

Since the book takes place in the UK, I was a bit frustrated with the “church” that kept denying assistance to the family. But that’s a more personal stance than anything else. I have no faith in the Catholic church. Time and time again I have found that they’re only there to assist if it benefits them in the long run.

The only major irritation I have with the book is that it just ends. There is no real follow up. Are they still plagued by the demonic spirit, even though they relocated? Are others living in their house and are they experiencing it now? Or was it solely Neil and Lee?

Also… TOTALLY frustrated with the DO8!!
Even more frustrated with the diamond shape in the yard.

What the hell. Every through investigator knows to research EVERYTHING. I kind of feel that the author touched on this topic, and it may have been a huge key in what was going on. But that was that. She mentioned it in the book, but no follow through.

Skeptic’s Eye
I definitely feel that Lee was some how involved in the events. It was just too uncanny how things continued to worsen every time he was around. Top it off with the fact he did not want Neil over at his house…. leads the investigator in me to question his personal motives more so.

I am thoroughly surprised that the amount of psychics, church members, friends and family never suggested that they stop dabbling in communicating with the entity. When you open communication, you create a bridge to be attacked. Recording, photographing, and table tapping are all sure fire ways to enable the rise in events. 

I firmly believe that Neil was possessed, even if at a mild extent. The book never once touched on that topic. Quite a few of the books I have read surrounding demonic possessions, deliverance and exorcisms would only suggest that this was the case with Neil. I believe that the closeness of his friends and family are the only reasons he did not succumb to the entity. Neil never was ever fully without support. He was gaunt, his physical appearance changed, he was depressed, defeated, and about totally given in.
Signs of possessions: Depression, alienation, “sinking into oneself”, acceptance, oppression, and eventually possession.

Overall, fantastic book!
