After You: A Demon is Always Lurking Nearby
Oh, that’s right, we talk about your love life. We sit with you in class. We know all about that thing you did last night. How do we know? We watch you. We go to those dance clubs with you. We scheme hideous outcomes for you. We know exactly what it is that will get you to our side. We create those wrong friendships you wished you never had. We invite you into those relationships that break your heart. We give you the life you never wanted, but it came at such a sweet price. We promised you the world and you took it like a kid wanting candy. All. Too. Easy. All I can say is, please, don’t let me get in the way of the worst ending of your life. I’m right behind you. I’ll open that door to frustration, nonsense and destruction.
Please. After You.

Book Review by Bree Herron
Well if there is anything to say for judging a book by its cover, it is that sometimes the covers hide a really good story that makes you think and see the spiritual warfare in a different light. Having enjoyed Screwtape Letters, I had an idea what to expect but I found it fascinating to read this book.
I really dislike this cover, and in fact, if I rated books by covers, I would be sending a 2-star review. But, covers are just 2% of a book and in this case,e it covers a gem.
I thought the approach to this topic was the best part of the book. It was interesting to have it from a demon’s point of view. The author does a great job with sentence structure and usage of words to grip the reader in each chapter.
Spirtiual warfare is not to be taken lightly and this book managed to paint it in light that many readers can follow and understand. It is creative and enjoyable to read. I haven’t fully processed what I have read and will go back to read it again, but I can say this book is one that leaves a reader with much to think about. I recommend this book.
**DISCLAIMER: I was provided an opportunity to read this book as an Advanced Reader Copy in return for a fair and honest review.
