5th sentence, 74th page: People should have noticed if all the angels on patrol everywhere had been doing the buzzard act that long.
Even demons need to run a business… or at least, it’s a great way to pull of a new kind of steeple…
I’m a little hinky about Christianity. Just bad experiences with some not nice people who hid behind their religion. But, it always makes me entertained to read any story that features a Christian spin or tale. The fact that this one focused on a demon’s point of view and his attempts at corrupting the church goers kind of made it all the more entertaining.
I loved the amount of thought and work that went into creating this world, and the way it overlapped so neatly with our own reality. Placing demons within churches as a vessel of temptation, and then the flaming swords of retribution… it all worked really cutely and I was actually a little disappointed when they all dissolved back into their hell dimensions…
