A family tragedy thrusts Amanda into the foster care of the Henning family at the start of her senior year of high school. Amanda soon learns that the prestigious private school isn't what it seems. Monarch Preparatory School for Girls is a place plagued by rampant teen pregnancy, promiscuity, and violence.
Amanda is confused when Kat, who rules the school, befriends her. Perhaps more confusing, though, are her momentary lapses in memory, misplaced or moved objects, and instances of depravity taking place within the Henning household.
Unbeknownst to Amanda, Ceremonial Father conducts ritual sacrifice and blood orgies with a group of Satanists.
What is truly happening at Monarch Prep? Can Amanda make it to graduation? Most of all, what role will she play?

Warning: Explicit, graphic sex scenes, pedophilia, rape, torture, incest, infanticide, and extreme language.
A pointless pornographic exploration of Devil worshipers and sexual perversion.
When Amanda’s foster family dies mysteriously, she finds herself in the home of the Hennings, her new foster family. At 17, she only needs to last out her senior year, graduate and she can finally be on her own. At first, the Hennings seem kind and generous. Soon the awful truth is revealed about her home and the private all girls’ school set up by Devil worshipers. Devil worship, adultery, pedophilia, incest, rape and worse, overwhelm the hapless Amanda.
OK, that’s the facade of a plot. In reality, this is a pornographic exploration of Devil worshipers and perversion. Hoping to find a point to it all, this reviewer listened to this thing to the end. But there was no point. It just ended as it began. It was neither erotic nor titillating, the endless streams of perverted sex just flowed on and on repetitiously, without redeeming value or purpose. A strong dose of restraint would have made this a far better book. It’s not even good enough to be disgusting, just tedious. It’s like watching a pornographic film hoping and expecting a good story to unfold. It won’t and doesn’t here. Whatever horror there might have been was lost in the uninteresting characters. The listener doesn’t really care what happens to any of them.
Joe Hempel performs this story. He does an excellent job considering the subject matter. His voice is wonderful to listen to and his characters are easily discernible. Hopefully, he got paid well.
If you are interested in listening to perverted sex scenes and pedophilia, this might be your cup of tea. You only need listen to the sample to know what it’s about. The whole thing is this way. If the subject matter offends you, there will be no point even listening to the sample.
