Not as good as #1 but I still enjoyed it. I also enjoyed its brevity.

I do not have a religion, and have wavered between agnostic and atheist over the years, still now unsure and unwilling to put a label on myself in that regard. But many a time I have become "offended" (well, that might be too strong a word, maybe more like bothered) when religion seeps into a place I didn't expect it to (and where it "shouldn't" be -- a separation of church & state). HOWEVER, although there is much allusion to Adam and Eve as well as a god or gods, I never once was bothered by all of that type of talk throughout this story. Knowing this about myself, I would beforehand have thought that I would be bothered by it if I had known the nature of the story before starting it.

I had pity for "the evil one" but I suppose our main character needed to follow his orders (or his guiding?) from the eldille (sp?), so his supposed "sin" might be forgiven?
