I is a very entertaining story of a demon who doesn't think quick enough and ends up on Satan's side instead of Gods.
I have read all 4 in the series and each one is better. I have loaned all 4 to my friends and each one has given the set back with good reviews. This book replaced one I had lost.

The Deliverer by Linda Rios Brook is the second book in the Reluctant Demon series following Lucifer Flood. A researcher is given a strange set of cuneiform scrolls that hold a fascinating story that may give insight into the past. Where did they come from and who wants them to be found? Brook offers a fresh take on the oft-told story of Moses as through the eyes of a fallen angel who has been assigned by Satan the job of watching the Hebrews in their slavery. The story follows the books of Exodus through Joshua and are very intriguing. At first I had a hard time really getting into the spirit of the book. It's not like standard biblical fiction, the "writer" is a demon, with an agenda and a bias, so the story doesn't always skew the way the reader would expect. Sometimes it comes off a bit flippant, and I had a hard time with some of the anachronistic language. Who knew that there werecuneiform for "See ya, wouldn't want to be ya" and "metrosexual "? But with more reading, the book won me over with its sense of humor and original point of view. The story sticks to Scripture closely while allowing the reader to see what spiritual warfare looks like. This is a book I would highly recommend to high school students who want an unprecedented look at an age old story told in their own language.

The Deliverer by Linda Rios Brook is book two of The Reluctant Demon Diaries. It has hooked me from the opening chapter! Although I was bothered by a plea from a spirit that asked for prayer after he was in hell, the story rapidly grabbed my imagination as a conversation took place between Satan and one of his angels about the deliverer arriving on earth. The deliverer is quickly identified as Moses, and I couldnt wait to see where the authors imagination was going to take me as an observer of this instrument of Gods liberation of Israel from Egyptian bondage. The story bounces from this plane of spiritual warfare to modern day interpretation of ancient scrolls that apparently tell this story.What a book! And the mental images painted by the author are so vivid that I think this would be an incredible movie! This book, although the second in a series, stands solidly on its own. But the writing is so good and the story so intriguing that I look forward to reading the first book, Lucifers Flood.
