Publisher's Summary

When linguist Andrew Dennison is yanked from his bed by the Secret Service and taken to a top secret facility in the desert, he has no idea he's been brought there to translate the words of an ancient demon.
He joins pretty but cold veterinarian Sun Jones, eccentric molecular biologist Dr. Frank Belgium, and a hodge-podge of religious, military, and science personnel to try and figure out if the creature is, indeed, Satan.
But things quickly go bad, and very soon Andy isn't just fighting for his life, but the lives of everyone on earth…

what a trip

There were so many points at which this book could have gone horribly, crashingly wrong. To my amazement, it never did, and I enjoyed the hell out of it. Literature for the ages, this is not. But it's ontologically whacked, it's crazy fun, it's bite-your-nails exciting! And Luke Daniels does a fine job with the narration. Definitely recommended to take the edge off the the pain of the current political primaries.

A Pleasant Surprise!

I purchased this Audible Book on a whim. I was checking out, and noticed the title, and scanned the summary, and since it was fairly short, and inexpensive, I added it to my cart. I sure am glad that I did so.
The storyline is imaginative, although it stretches the imagination a wee bit, but what I really found enjoyable was the characters, all of them.
I would recommend this quick listen to anyone who has a tendency to enjoy rather quirky, out of the ordinary Audible Books.
I don't really want to give anything else away, or it wouldn't be a suprise!
