Publisher's Summary

From Ed and Lorraine Warren, the demonologists featured in The Conjuring horror films, comes the story of the most terrifying case of demonic possession in the United States. It became the basis for the hit film The Haunting in Connecticut starring Virginia Madsen. Shortly after moving into their new home, the Snedeker family is assaulted by a sinister presence that preys one-by-one on their family. Exhausting all other resources, they call up the world-renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, who have never encountered a case as frightening as this.

No one had warned the Snedekers their new house used to be an old funeral home. Their battle with an inexplicable and savage phenomena had only just begun. What started as a simple poltergeist escalated into a full-scale war, an average American family battling the deepest, darkest forces of evil a war this family could not afford to lose.

Gripping, every last word of it!

Firstly, my respect to the family and Ed and Lorraine Warren.
What they experienced is truly horrific.

and secondly, the narration was AMAZING!!! It felt like there was a whole cast of people. it flowed so well and really added to the atmosphere.

Also, I LOVED how the story was written.
Like a fiction novel in 3rd person, but giving actual day to day accounts of this family's life and what they went through.

I will be binge reading all of these :)

A great scare

I'm familiar with this story as I've seen it on paranormal shows before, but the book gives more creepy details. The performance by the narrator was also great. Don't listen to it at night!

Excellent account for the Haunting in Connecticut!

I love reading or watching accounts of Ed and Lorraine Warren! This book gives you a glimpse of how their work helps others. More than that, when you look at the time line paired with what the family went through, how terrible. The movie moved so quickly that this books gives you a greater understanding of how the family was assaulted. It gave me an even greater appreciation for what not only Ed and Lorraine do, but the priests who are called on to fight the true evil monsters.

Best book of the Warren series

Out of all the Warren books, this one is the best. The story is well written and a slow burn with a climatic ending. The narration is fantastic.

Off topic, but either the story isn't true at all, or the Snedekers are the worst parents. First they don't believe their children (all of them) even though they are having experiences themselves. Screaming at their child, who had cancer, that he was lying all the time. Being downright mean to him. They have that child committed even. But then they don't even bother moving when they do finally, finally admit it, using the whole "we don't have the money". Sorry, but I wouldn't rather live in my car or a motel than watch my child be raped by demons. So that part is frustrating to read. I felt angry for their children.

I've listened to all of Ed & Lorraine Warren's book. This one has been my favorite! I was scared and on the edge of my seat. If you like scary stories or are deciding between this book and another, get this one! You won't regret it!

Very graphic and scary! ( If true?)

This book I would recommend not only to Edd and Lorraine Warren fans but anyone who likes a good scare. The narrator manages to adapt his voice to accommodate the various characters within this tale which adds to atmosphere of the book. Listen with the lights on. This should be part of the conjuring saga of films.

Performed excellently

The story itself was solid enough and had some great moments, but the dialogue and described behaviour of the parents in the book was constantly infuriating and provided massive stumbling blocks.
The performance of Todd Haberkorn was really strong throughout.
