This is what I like to call speculative fiction. It poses the question, "What if?", and then proceeds to mess with the reader's mind, opening up a dialogue and causing the reader to think outside the box.
"Demon: A Memoir" is a what if of huge proportions. What if a demon could be interviewed by a human being, and what if it was written down for the world to read? What would we gain? What would we lose?
Clay works for a small publishing house and is struggling through life. Recently divorced, a frustrated author, he lives a meaningless existence...until he meets Lucian.
Clay's entire life changes with these few words: "I'm going to tell you my story, and you're going to write it down and publish it." And so the journey begins...
We learn what it must have been like for the ones cast out of Heaven to watch as God created the world. How it must have felt to observe Him stooping down, scooping up a handful of dirt, and molding it into His finest creation...then breathing the life into it from His own mouth.
This is the story of our salvation from evil's perspective, and it is chilling, eye-opening, and a little mind-blowing. Tosca Lee has taken on a huge task of redefining what it means to believe in God and in Christ, all without demeaning it or warping the truth.
And she does a masterful job.
We have more to look forward to from Tosca as she currently works on her next novel, "Havah: The Story of Eve"...and I'm sure it too will be mind-bending fiction.
If you don't mind having your faith challenged...if you can handle suspending disbelief in a tremendous way...if you've ever wondered how satan and his minions view us...this is the book for you.
"Demon: A Memoir" gets 6 out of 5 bookmarks from me...with a Bible charm...can't hurt to have Scripture handy when talking to a demon!!
