The Deliverer
Reluctant Demon Diaries, Book #2

Review Brought to you by OBS staff member Annabell Cadiz


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.

Ancient language expert Samantha Yale is now translating a new batch of ancient scrolls. This new volume of writings covers the demon’s eyewitness accounts of biblical events spanning from the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt through the leadership of Joshua.


The Deliverer offers a fresh take on Moses and what happened after he led the Hebrews out of Egypt and into the desert. The book also tells what happens after Moses dies and Joshua steps in as his successor. The book is an interesting take because the stories from the Bible are told from the perspective of a fallen angel who desperately wants to return to Heaven to be with God again. The fallen angel still has yet to reveal his name and finds himself drawing closer to Moses and Joshua, caring for them and what they go through.

There are times when the plot falters because of the way the dialogue is written. The author ventures far too modern in the language making it come off unrealistic and harsh. The modern day dialogue didn’t fit with the rest of the novel being told in a more antiquity tone. I still find the fallen angel pretty humorous and feel for his plight.

I enjoy the Reluctant Demon Diaries. It’s fun and pretty easy read. The books follow the Bible stories closely and The Deliverer shows how close God is to His children and how much He loves them by always finding a reason and a way to give them another chance.
