Publisher's Summary

The world's only non-denominational exorcist - the subject of a forthcoming major motion picture - tells her astonishing true story: a riveting chronicle of wrestling entities from infected souls, showing how pain and trauma opens us to attachment from forces that drain our energy...and can even destroy our humanity.

As a secular exorcist, Rachel H. Stavis has cleansed thousands of tormented people, from small children and Hollywood moguls to stay-at-home moms and politicians. But for many years, the horror screenwriter and novelist denied her gift. As a little girl, she began to see "monsters" floating around her bedroom or attached to other children. Told it was only her imagination, Rachel learned to ignore the things she saw.

But a series of events in adulthood forced her to acknowledge her unique ability and embrace her power to heal. Since then, Rachel has dedicated her life to helping others cast off the forces feeding off of us. Performing her services pro-bono, she quietly worked in the shadows, until she unknowingly revealed her work to a journalist, who told her story to NPR.

A unique look at demonology removed from religious dogma, Sister of Darkness recounts Rachel's journey to becoming an exorcist and chronicles some of her most extreme cleansings cases, including those that put her and her clients in peril. Going deep into her world, we meet the diverse range of people she has helped - young, old, famous, and not - in gripping stories of danger and sometimes sadness, that are ultimately about redemption. Rachel teaches us that there are a diverse range of "entities" surrounding us - some of these are playful or misguided, while some are dangerous and harmful. She introduces each of them and explains their power, helping us understand what is attacking and hurting us, and what we can do to protect ourselves.

Frightening, eye-opening, and utterly enthralling, Sister of Darkness brings to light a world ruled by destruction, chaos and fear, and the woman who bravely fights to protect those who seeks her out.

Informative and Enlightening

This book came to me at the perfect time. I listened to an interview with the author on a podcast and felt compelled to give it a go. That decision had to be one of the best I have ever made. Once I convinced myself to listen with an open heart and an open mind, everything just resonated with me perfectly. She had a way of putting everything in a perception that was totally relatable and explained everything with such clarity and confidence that I walked away with a new found personal confidence. If you are doubting if you should give this book a try, then just listen to your gut and go for It! you won't regret it!

This validated a lot for me

I hadn't been to a book store in a long time. One day last week I was going to the pet store to buy cat food and had a spur of the moment inclination to go into Barnes&Noble. I saw this book sitting on a shelf at the book store and was immediately drawn to it. After much contemplation, I didn't buy it thinking I don't need another book. And as phases go, there are phases where this line of work keeps coming back to the forefront for me and I keep ignoring it. I walked away from it thinking I'll see if I can get a better price for it somewhere else. When I had the chance to look around online the first thing I found was the an offering on Audible, I jumped on it. With that said, this book helped me tremendously. I've been drawn to this work for a very long time but have ignored the pull. I've seen some of what she has seen and have been doing the work in a more removed way (via the Akashic Records) but sporadically. I am grateful that she has walked the walk and that she gave an inside view of her life, her experiences, what she has seen (I'm a visual person), what the work entails and tips on how to do some if the self work. This validated alot for me and although my sightings are not as frequent as hers, they parallel and she clarified alot for me. Great book for those who are not sure, who doubt or are ignoring the fact that they really are being called to do this kind of work. Thank you R.H. Stavis for putting this out there for those of us still hesitating.

A great listen on a rainy day

Purchased this book based on listens to RH Stavis on podcasts such as Talk is Jericho and Boo Crew! Originally purchased hardcover but lack of free time to sit and read gave audiobook an easier decision! Marathoned on a single Saturday through jogs and relaxing on a rainy day. Was very enjoyable and informative! Makes you really reflect on ones life and the better you can do not only for one self but for all beings furry and ones who walk on two legs. Would recommend and plan on lending hardcover to coworkers who have waited for me to finish reading

Exceptional! An eye opener!

Sister of Darkness was and is an eye opening adventure into a world that most people are unaware of and where most would fear to tread. It is scary, fun , informative and amazing! It shows the spirit/entity world in a new and astounding reality. The author definitely lives the phrase, never judge a book by its cover! A must read!

Fascinating<br />

I enjoyed this book very much, and could not stop listening. I must admit that it is a bit creepy what Rachel sees. It will make you feel a bit creeped out imagining dark entities hovering in your room at night.
