I was a little scared to read this book at first because I thought it was going to try and trick me out of my beliefs. But once I started reading the thing I couldn’t put it down! I thought it was going to be full of evil and blasphemous themes but really it was just an interesting (fictional) take on the stories we all know and love. I’d recommend to anyone!
Through the Devil’s Eyes:
You’ve heard God’s side of the story, it’s time to hear mine.
Betrayed by the one they call “God,” I was cast out for defending what I helped create against imperfection. He condemned me to Hell for eternity to watch as those I love fall into the trench of eternal suffering, but I will soon seek my revenge—I have no other option but to tempt the souls of mankind into damnation in order to save them.
It may be hard to believe, but we once lived in harmony together. His pride and arrogance led the world to become the vile and despicable place it is today, forcing me to challenge Him for dominion over the universe. I was defeated, so I was forced out of heaven, but I continue to fight Him in an endless war for every human soul. Souls equal power, and the more I collect, the closer I become to ensuring my victory against Him. With the fallen angels by my side, we’ve effectively instilled evil into every heart that walks the earth; there is not one soul that hasn’t been tainted by our work, and soon, we will take back the throne and restore the world to its formerly perfect state.
Through the Devil’s Eyes is an exciting work of fiction that chronicles the most significant events portrayed in the Christian Bible. Told from the Devil’s perspective, it shows there are two sides to every story. It is a tale of survival, vengeance, hope, and love narrated by a being mistakenly thought of as a monster.
About the Author
Zachary J. Gura, Telling stories is a passion. There’s a joy that accompanies watching something grow from a single sentence into an entire novel. Like molding clay or raising children, it’s necessary and rewarding to nurture characters until they become life-like and relatable. I love when people can’t tell the difference between a real and fictional character!
I enjoy writing all types of stories but prefer to write fictional tales that either challenge the reader’s conventional way of thinking or scares their pants off. No matter what I write, I want to provide an enjoyable, thought-provoking experience that a reader can get lost in.
When I’m not writing or blogging I enjoy reading (who doesn’t love Stephen King?), fishing, cycling, strumming my guitar, watching movies, and playing video games (sometimes a bit too much!).
