The battle between good and evil, God and Satan.
A fight older than time.
But is everything we know about this struggle just a matter of propaganda? Satan, Lucifer, the Devil, Shaytan sure thinks so. In this letter he tries to convince the human race, you, of his intentions.
They are pure.
Everything that was blamed on him was done as a smokescreen to cover more sinister motives.
The Fall? Not merely a matter of wanting to rule in Hell over serving in Heaven.
The Garden of Eden? He was trying to help us.
Jesus? Don't even ask.
With this letter Lucifer tells us his version of all the stories to settle his mind and settle the injustices of this world once and for all. Be careful...you might find yourself on the wrong side.

If it isn't difficult, it may just not be worth doing.
Something I found very interesting was the pure creativity of the story. There is a fun and unique story told by Lucy himself to essentially explain how he isn't a bad guy and that we've got him all wrong.
The only reason I didn't rate the story as a 5 is because it seemed to tail off at the end or rather run out of "real estate" in the framing of the book to drive home the overall storyline.
This was absolutely an enjoyable listen. I was able to listen to this gratis'.
This is an interesting perspective from the "other side." I was intrigued and it didn't fail to deliver. Very cool little story.
It's good to look at things from a different perspective and this showcases that fact.
It's really quite a novel experience to hear a story from Satan's perspective. I give this book 10/10, would recommend to anyone that isn't the stuffy religious type.
Fun, short, sweet
Interesting take on Satan
Great listen-could really do something more with this story-excellent narrator!
Satirical, Snarky, Blasphemous (in the best of ways)
Satan, obviously. It was enjoyable to read from Satan's perspective of humans, god, and religion from an uncommon, though provoking perspective. Not only do you see Satan characterized as something other than an angel fallen from grace, you see a perspective as to why this could have happened.
Man's creation. The rest you'll have to read for yourself as I don't like to include spoilers in my reviews.
It made me laugh, just because it challenges the status quo. I enjoyed this story, as it's similar to Mark Twain's satirical Satan-based writings, while taking an entirely different perspective on Satan. I saw the description of this book, and hoped it wouldn't be a Twain rewrite. It definitely is not a rewrite, and the jabs taken at modern day religion I can only imagine don't go over well with the highly zealous folks.
If you enjoy religious works that challenge the generalized ideals of God as the almighty, all powerful, loving entity -- this book is for you.
Always open to something new, but my favorite genres are horror, sci-fi/fantasy with more of a leaning toward fantasy.
I enjoyed this quite a bit. The "other side of the story" type of tale is right up my alley. If you like this type of tale I would recommend this story. I liked it enough as well to buy the Kindle version so I can go back over it in print. I'm a little torn at 4 stars but I think I could go with a split at 5 for the story and 4 for the narration for 4.5 actual stars. My only criticism of the narration is that the bass level seemed a bit high which made it a little hard to hear some of the words at times, otherwise the narrator did an excellent job with character and voice. I would love a more expanded version of the tale in the future if the author has more to tell. I could definitely see a novella sized story here. Good job!
