Lucifer's Flood, the first installment in The Reluctant Demon Diaries by Linda Rios Brook, tells the well-known tale of the beginning of the world in Genesis through the eyes of a fallen angel. The writing was very accessible and the storyline was too, though I was a bit disappointed about that. I don't know; I guess it's the honors English student inside me, since I do take honors English (A+ in that class BTW). But I was more disappointed by the theology. The author makes a note to the reader tha the book is not a theological teatise, however, I was not happy about some of the theology included in the book. It did not stray outside the lines of basic Christian doctrine, but I did not agree with a lot of the theories included in Lucifer's Flood. The worst part for me was theat redemption didn't enter the picture directly until the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Redemption is woven in every strand of God's Word. The reason Noah took 120 years to build the Ark: God was giving the people of earth, who were extremely sinful, a chance to repent. It's not that he was old. (I know six hundred seems decrepit, but really it was probably like late forties. Then again... JK! Sorry. I'm a teenager.) Anyway, this book failed to meet my full expectations, but it was pretty good, and I will be reccomending it to my friends. And I do reccomend it to you. Just decide some of the theological theories for yourself before you explore it.

I've always wondered how satan came to be, and while this is a fictional book,it really shined a light on what might have happened and why. I really enjoying it. This whole series is great. I look forward to book 4 in the next month.

Great Fiction Read!! I bought as a vacation book and did not leave the pool and resort gardens until I had finished this book. Promptly bought and read he Deliverer as well. Captivating! On to book three in the series, The King. Can't wait.

I read both Lucifer's flood and Deliverance and found myself at the edge of my seat. I couldn't put the book down. Could it have happened in that manner? were there angel in the line of Michaels fire that just were at the wrong place at the wrong time? But at the same time, that would mean admitting a mistake was made. I can't wait for the 3rd series. Something big is about to happen.what will the scrolls reveal next?

This is a spellbinding finctional tale about the beginning as told by a deamon who found himself in the wrong place during the great war in heaven when Lucifer rebells against God. The author tells it as though he is writing a diary and at places it is hysterical. It made me order #2(Moses & Joshua) of the series and I cant wait for #3 due in April 2010

I really enjoyed this book - knowing that it is a fiction book it still really makes you think wonder how it "really" did happen and to be thankful we are given grace that the angels didn't have. Only bad thing about ti is once i started reading it i didn't want to put it down!

I am NOT one to reads novels but having studied extensively the scripture between Gen. 1:1-1:2, I feel the novelistic approach of Mrs. Brook is very insightful! It's a book that's very hard to put down. You will find yourself referencing the bible during your journey. An Excellent Work! Sequel due in May 2009 & I can't Wait!!

Great read. It is fiction but it makes you think that it could have happened that way. Can't wait for the sequel.
