This book is based on a very interesting concept, one that will get you thinking about new possibilities, and depending on what you believe, could challenge your personal take on nurture vs. nature.

Bart Bare has taken a seldom questioned fact, that Satan is a man, and spun it on its ear, portraying Satan as a woman. A beautiful, sexy woman who comes to the main character, John Everson, and proposes a deal; she'll let him live his life over, starting at whatever point he chooses.

The opening line, "You've got great legs for The Devil", will hook you and the first several chapters draw you in even more, as John struggles with whether or not to take Satan's offer, and Satan works to convince him she is who she says she is and that he has nothing to lose but everything to gain if he agrees. Which he does, of course, and the reader is treated to an entertaining story of how a life can differ based on decisions a person makes.

Satan's Bargain will have you asking yourself numerous times, "What if?" and it will get you thinking about that one point in your life that could have changed everything if you'd only reacted differently.

The ending, like the concept of the whole book, will have you re-thinking your beliefs and as a writer, I loved the spin on the traditional story closing of "The End" to "It Begins".
