Publisher's Summary

Ted and Mary Anderson have just returned home to Villejeune, Florida, to start again. Little do they know that they will soon be drawn into a nightmare of unholy ceremony and unutterable horror.…

The small town of Villejeune, Florida, lies far enough from the inquisitive eyes of strangers and even the reaches of the law that a community with its own customs, rituals, and deadly rites has grown there. In order to start fresh after a failed job prospect and unexpected emotional trauma for their teenage daughter, Ted and Mary Anderson have returned home to Villejeune, unaware of the growing malevolence there. Soon, they are thrust into a nightmare as their sweet but troubled daughter, Kelly, is pulled into the darkness that seems to have consumed the town. Like the other children in Villejeune, her life and her very soul are soon threatened by the shadowy, ancient evil that drives the residents of Villejeune to commit their terrible deeds.

Prince of the Outcasts

I confess, this was a nostalgic revisit for me. The book transported me into that addictive John Saul 'young adult'-tinged cinematic experience on several occasions.

Kudos to Angela Dawe. Solid performance!
