Tosca Lee. I stared at it until the driver leaned over and opened the passenger door. Get in. We have to talk. I don’t have to do anything. He was ruddy skinned and thick set. His head was shaved and his brows might as well have been; they were so pale that they hardly appeared on his face except when the light caught them. A thick stainless steel watch escaped the ribbed cuff of his leather bomber jacket. I tried to delay her.

Demon, A Memoir, by author Tosca Lee, is a gripping tale of rage and pent up madness, held under exquisite control by the demon Lucian. The fact that the tale has to do with events beginning before Time and running through to today is intriguing enough, yet the story is spun with a masterful enchantment, which held this reviewer in rapt attention.

Lucian the demon, tells Clay the writer, his life's story, which is, his observance of Biblical events since his creation. It's a gripping tale of prolonged defeat and favoritism. Lucian is blatant with his on-site remembrances and thoughts. His misguided ideas and beliefs of what will happen is proven wrong time after time. Yet, he remains mesmerized by history's events as they unfold. By story's end, he's resigned to the inevitable.

But you have to wonder--did Clay get the message?

This Reviewer found Ms. Lee’s descriptions and metaphors worked like magic—average words thrown together which lifted the story to a greater purpose.

All of the events described by Lucian are well known to any well-churched Christian, but the story’s perspective is illuminating.

Well written and well done. Riveting and emotionally compelling. Read it. I highly recommend it.

I generally use two criteria to determine if a book is great or merely good. One of those is if the book can surprise me. The other is if I end up thinking about the book a long time after finishing it. The first is usually more common than the second, but both of them were present with my reading of Demon.

The basic premise is that a mysterious man/woman who turns out to be a demon comes to a promising book editor and tells him that he was going to publish a book about the demons life. And the next few months are spent with the demon revising the editor time after time to tell him of his life from before the creation of the world until the present day. When the demon appears to the editor, it is almost always in a coffee shop or a restaurant, and the demon changes his/her appearance each time; this time a young man, that time a middle-aged woman.

It took me a little while to get into the book, but about halfway through it really took off for me. This is not a book with edge-of-your-seat type scenes. It is more cerebral in nature. I compare it to The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. The retelling of history from the perspective of a fallen angel is a large part of the story, but the other part is how the editor’s life begins to fall apart as he gets obsessed with the new book he is trying to write.

If there was any part that I had problems with, it would be that–at least at first–I had a hard time believing that the author was getting into the head of a man. Lee’s story would have the editor notice the appearance of men more than women, which is unlikely for a man. In addition, the details of where they were meeting smacked to me of what a woman would see, rather than a man. It got better as the novel progressed, but initially I had a little bit of issue with it.

I talked about surprise. The ending is one that you can’t predict, and caught me totally off guard. At the same time, in retrospect it makes perfect sense.

More than anything, Demon gives the reader a very fresh perspective on the ongoing battle between good and evil, from the very beginning to the very end. I found myself thinking both about the book and about my own relationship with God after completing it.

If you're like me, you've probably read the creation account of the Bible quite a few times as well as the story of the life and testimony of Jesus Christ. When I had the opportunity to read, Demon: A Memoir by Tosca Lee I was completely blown away by the author's ability to enhance what I've read time and time again with new clarity. Mind you she doesn't take away anything from the Bible, but merely increases the reader's knowledge about why there is such a hatred from demons towards human beings in general.

In this novel, the reader is given the opportunity to witness an interaction between an editor for Brooks and Hanover named Clayton and what he considers as a random encounter with a well-dressed man who goes by the name of Lucian. What Clay soon discovers is that Lucien isn't all that he appears to be, and begins to tell him things about his life that only Clay would know. Thinking Lucien has been spying on him, he gets visibly upset and its then that Lucien reveals that he is a demon who wants Clay to publish a memoir of sorts based on the conversations he has with him.

Of course at first, Clay doesn't believe this is really happening until an unexpected meeting appears on his calendar at work with the name of the client as simply "L." When Clay arrives at the library he encounters a beautiful woman he is immediately attracted to. However when the woman speaks to him, Clay soon realizes that Lucien can take on the shape and likeness of anyone he chooses while having these random meetings with Clay. Over the time he spends with Lucien, he learns about the history of angels and their relationship with God before the fall, as well as what happened when Lucifer and the third of the angels fell from heaven. He is the witness to the creation of the world, the garden of Eden, the testing of Job as well as the life, testimony and crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Along the way, he gives Clay insights on why they rose up against God, how they viewed their own status against human kind, what they really thought of Earth, the creation of Adam and the new relationship with God. He paints the picture for Clay that illustrates just why things have gotten so out of hand in the world and what role demons play in their influence here on Earth with humans. It truly does paint a different picture seeing it through the eyes of a fallen angel who was once in a very intimate relationship with God, and then suddenly found themselves perpetually damned with no hope of redemption, while man on the other hand, could make mistake after mistake and God works to restore that relationship even to the point of dying to restore the covenant of everlasting life for those that believe and have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

I received no compensation to review this book or to provide a review other than my own honest opinion and I purchased a copy for my Kindle on my own. After reading Iscariot, also by Tosca Lee, I was completely blown away by her uncanny ability to delve into such historical biblical research and create an impression of what we might all be missing. For me, this just solidified some of the answers to those time honored questions we all find ourselves asking like, "Why do bad things happen to good people?" "If God, really is a God of love, why does He allow things to happen when He could easily prevent them? Like I stated, earlier, she doesn't change what the Bible has to say but merely gives us a more in depth look at why things are the way they are, and truly how wonderful the gift of salvation really is. It is one I will never take for granted again. This one rates a 5 out of 5 stars and I can't wait to get started on Havah next!!!
