I picked this book up at the dollar store, on a clearance shelf no less. I believe It had been marked down to 3 bucks. It contains the first two books of four in The Reluctant Demon Diaries. Even though it was christian fiction I was a little hesitant as the books are from the perspective of a fallen angel. As I began reading I quickly found my concerns were unwarranted. The Books are AWESOME!
(From the back cover) Go back to where it all began..... "The sensation of falling was TERRIFYING....we tumbled out of the realm of the heavenly light into perpetual darkness. We had not seen darkness before.... Not like This Anyway..."
The author Linda Rios Brook is an ordained minister and has a firm grasp on the biblical accounts contained within the books. Although there are many fiction scenarios within the story such as, the first person or (demon) account of the fall of Lucifer with 1/3 of the angelic host of heaven. There are many more elaborations of the true stories within the pages of the bible. I found it very refreshing and exciting!
Lucifer's Flood takes you from the garden of Eden to Noah's ark and ends with the birth of Moses.
The Deliverer picks back up with Moses' rise as Gods chosen deliverer to the Hebrews in their exodus of Egypt through the leadership of Joshua.
The two remaining books in this series are... The King (King David) and the final installment is The Redeemer (Jesus)
I HIGHLY recommend these books. They are just wonderful and VERY difficult to put down. I was up till 3 and 4 am reading and would have held my eyelids open if I could have to read them strait through! :) I finished both books (approx 600 pages) in just a few days. If you have any trouble finding these them at your local book store you can buy them on Amazon or Ebay. I cant wait to purchase and read the final two books!!!
