Publisher's Summary

My name is Marten Mann. I work for the devil, or the prince of lies, as you people are so fond of calling him. Yes. You read that last line correctly. I am employed by the powers of evil as acquisitor ad infinitum. I did not seek out this job: I was chosen for the position. To put it in simpler terms, I am a broker of sorts - you know, the guy who finds out what it is that you want the most. I make it readily available to you for a price. I think we all know just how costly that one thing that you think you need so much can be, which is why I urge all of my clients to choose wisely.

A Great Angle on an Age Old Story

What did you love best about Mr. Mann?

The humanization of Abby. I have never read (or listened to) a book where the bad guy was humanized this much, especially when the character is THE ultimate bad guy (Satan). I especially love the sequence where Abby talked about the origin of death.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Abby for sure was my favorite character. John Byron did an amazing job of adding all of the human (and demon/angel) idiosyncrasies that made the character pop in my mind. Abby was shown as the worst possible deity early in the book, but as Martin continued to work with him I actually felt sympathy for Abby.

What about Todd McLaren’s performance did you like?

Todd McLaren did an amazing job with the reading, especially with Abby and Brady. Todd's tone for Abby fit the character perfectly. The low calm voice (on the verge of insanity) and the excellently delivered screams when Abby was not so happy with a situation made this fun to listen to. I also loved the voices of terror that Todd delivered, especially Brady's voice when he was running scared in the "hot lands".

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Some of Martin's take on difficult situations made me laugh, the way he digressed during awful occurrences added a nice dark humor to the book. I felt a heavy emotional response to Abby's recollection of the first experience of death for the Angels, it just made you feel bad for him.

Any additional comments?

I had a great time listening to this book. I thought the story was well written and a fresh take on an age old story.

Wonderful heresy

First, from a religious point of view there is almost nothing in this book I agree with. With that out of the way, this is just a really fun book. The narration is spot on and the characters are really well done. I bought this in the $3.95 gems collection, i would hapily spend more
