Beat and original reading experience that fans of Chris Moore Joe Hill Chuck Palahniuk and Jim Shepard would sell their souls for a brilliant blending of the occult and the outrageous starring the anti hero of anti heroes the one and only Prince of Darkness. This debut novel follows the format of Devil as protagonist seen in Glen Duncan’s I Lucifer Finally the Other Side of the Story and Steven Brust’s To Reign in Hell A Novel Here the backdrop of the Devil’s playground is America running from the first settlers to land all the way to a reality TV ridden near future Though some of the side trips fall into the realm of world history Poore returns his Devil time and again back to the US of A It is these asides dreams and jaunts through history that provide the real meat of the story Unfortunately the overall frame doesn’t really hold up on its own Without the tangents there simply would not be much of a book at all While the novel would definitely be stronger if the general premise had solid footing the sideways snippets and glimpses are interesting enough to hold the book up and keep readers flipping pagesPoore strikes a good balance between humour and some nuggets of genuine wisdom With a debut novel like this it will be interesting to see where he moves from here and just what characters and subjects he will tackle next
