This was a great story full of constant action and sympathetic characters. The main character is, of all things, a fallen angel turned demon turned underdog hero. The author achieves the impossible of making the reader care for the demon as we follow his efforts to free his demon friend who is trapped inside a human! It's a fun, engaging read that I highly recommend!

The Consuming is the first book in the Demon Soul Saga by Todd Boyer, and lays the ground work for what could be very interesting series. For those who love their Bible lore this book will feed your habit. This novel fits nicely within the fantasy genre, and brings with it a new twist to Angels and Demons and their battle of good and evil. The author takes us to the depths of hell and looks into the heart of a demon and brings new light to the fallen.

The book follows two demons Ike and Max, a u

Description:

Jack O'Conner has dealt with his fair share of figurative demons - death, loss, and alcohol - but what happens when an actual demon decides to possess Jack's bitter soul and have a little fun? Well, not what demons Ike and Max thought would happen. Instead of consuming Jack's soul and taking control, Ike gets trapped inside and must rely on Max to somehow release him. Unfortunately, no one on Earth seems to know how, so Max must cross into another realm and find a demon who can help

I received The Consuming from Bostick Communications and did not know exactly what to expect, which is always an adventure in itself. From the very first page, I was happily engrossed in the plot and the characters. Had anyone ever told me that I would read a book about a couple of demons and actually grow to like them, I would have declared them non compos mentis (which is a polite way of saying they are crazy). But, I did indeed grow to like Max and Ike, a couple of reluctant demons who happen ...more

Don’t let the genre “Christian Fiction” throw you off. This will appeal to both Christians and non-christians. This was interesting. What would happen if a demon were “trapped” in a human body while they tried to possess it? This is what happens to the demon Ike in this story. To make it interesting Max, another demon, decides to save his demon friend. It is during his mission to help his friend that he learns about a demon named Garrock. Garrock is a warrior and is making plans to do away with ...more

Great book for Christians and non-Believers. Can't wait for the sequel!

@TBoyer317 First of all, I really love the cover of this book!

The story reminded me of many Bible stories I'd read as a kid. At first, I really didn't like the narration and felt like the narrator was telling too much and not letting me experience the story firsthand. Once I realized that this style was similar to Bible stories, I was OK with it.

Powerful setup for a series. The story has a moral bent and the readers who will really love this story will probably be turned away by the cover!!!
