Synopsis of the book:
One encounter changes everything…
I started to rise. He grabbed me by the arm. His fingers bit through the sleeve of my coat, exceedingly strong, unnaturally warm.
“You will recall everything — every word I say. Long after you have forgotten, in fact, the way I summoned you to this table, the first prick of your mortal curiosity about me. Long after you have forgotten, in fact, the most basic details of your life. You will remember — and you will curse of bless this day.”
I felt ill. Something about the way he said mortal… In that instant, reality, strung out like an elastic band, snapped.
“Yes. You see.” He smiled. “You know. We can share now, between us, the secret of what I am.”
The words came, unbidden, to my mind: Fallen. Dark Spirit.
I’m not sure that I have the words to describe my experience with this book. And I do mean experience. I didn’t just read this story. I was completely drawn into it.
This story is not for the faint of heart. It made me think. It made me examine everything that I know about the evil that exists in this world and the demonic forces that I believe are present in it. Talk about scary.
But it was more than that. The demon’s story emphasized the love story of God for those he created special… US. I wondered at the jealousy and hate that the demon claimed the fallen angels (and Satan) held for humans. I wanted to weep at the idea that they know what we have with God, but many of us are unappreciative and even ungrateful for it.
And I wanted Clay to bless the day that he met the demon. You will have to read it for yourself to find out if he does.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
The story captivated my attention and made me take notice of my own complacency with my relationship with God.
What I didn’t like about this book:
That it made me examine my own feelings about the spiritual realm. At times, it was a little uncomfortable.
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Would I recommend this book to others? Absolutely. No matter what your beliefs about the existence of demons, this story is a good one to read. It held my attention to the very end. I can’t even explain how I felt at the end, except to say… Wow.
