Don’t let the cover or the title of this book fool you–it is most definitely Christian fiction, by the strictest definition of the term. It isn’t on the level of those vampire or “living dead” books. At its base, it’s theological, philosophical. Amazing.
This novel is not only vividly, compellingly written, it’s also stunningly feasible. “Thought-provoking” doesn’t begin to cover it.
The story, at its most stripped-down, basic plot, is about a demon who takes on various human forms and appears at different times to tell his story to an editor at a publishing house. And it’s about the man to whom he tells his story.
But that’s not doing the novel justice. The story is about the creation, the fall, the history of mankind, the salvation offered through God’s only Son. It’s about the battle of principalities and powers, and hatred and love. It’s about God’s enduring, unfaltering love for us.
And, just as Lucian tells Clay the story is about him, ultimately it’s about you. You and the decision you must make concerning your eternity.
