Synopsis

Ancient language expert Samantha Yale returns to translate a new batch of scrolls written by the fallen angel from Lucifer’s Flood.

Samantha Yale has taken on a daunting translation project. A set of scrolls, delivered by a man she knows nothing about, tells a fascinating and frightening tale of what went on behind the scenes of biblical history. What is even more incredible is who is telling the tale–a fallen angel who immediately regretted his decision to side with Lucifer.

With The Deliverer, Linda Rios Brook brings new depth of imagery into the spirit world. It is a story about rebellion and consequences. It is about demonic strategy to disrupt and destroy the people of God. But ultimately, it is a story about the unrelenting love, grace, mercy, and determination of a sovereign God in pursuit of His children.

My Thoughts

I was thrilled back in July when I realized that Linda had come back with the 2nd book in the “Reluctant Demon Diaries”. Last year I had the pleasure of reading “Lucifer’s Flood” and eagerly awaited this book.

The story brings you back to Samantha Yale whom is a ancient language expert. She is asked again to translate more scrolls written by the fallen angel. This story revolves around Moses leading the people out of Egypt and I must say it is pretty interesting.

I really enjoy the story line, however some of the dialogue is silly andsome of the things I could never personally picture God or Moses saying but that is why this is fictional. It is a very entertaining read but I recommend reading the first book “Lucifer’s Flood” as this one picks up after it.

The demon who is writing this diary has more emotion and feeling than I ever imagined “it” could have but it adds a lot of dimension to the story and you can tell how badly this fallen angel wishes he could redeem himself and he almost gets the chance a few times.

There is a lot of what I think is useless chatter between Satan & this fallen angel, some of it almost comedic really, as the fallen angel is supposed to keep watch over Moses & God and Satan asks him to report back anything important but everything reported back to him never seems important enough.

I honestly enjoyed this second book and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys biblical fiction.
