This week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the literature & fiction Audible Original, Another Name for the Devil by Mason Deaver. This audio work was released in October 2021. It is performed by Avi Roque and is 3 hours & 0 minutes in length. The following overview is provided from the Audible page: Gabriel has spent the last decade trying to forget his best friend, the first boy he ever loved: Jacob. Ripped away from each other in the midst of a family tragedy, Gabriel grieved for Jacob alone, surviving in their small religious town before finally breaking free to attend college, where they found new friends and relationships to pursue. To Gabriel, Jacob became a distant memory. Until one fateful Halloween night, when the two are reunited, and Gabriel couldn’t be happier. Now, as adults, they can find the comfort and love that they desired in their adolescence. However, it doesn’t take long for Gabriel to realize that time apart has changed Jacob. The once confident and assured boy has grown into an isolated and obsessive adult. And the more Gabriel discovers about the man he loves, the clearer the danger becomes. When Jacob reveals to Gabriel his life’s work—his studies into the occult, demonic practices, and his ultimate desire to summon and communicate with Paimon, a King of Hell—Gabriel finds himself dragged into a world that they never asked to be a part of. But the further Gabriel goes, the more they realize that the demonic king is not the true threat, and that evil had been beside them all along…
This audio work was haunting to consume. It had me on the edge of my seat as I experienced every twist and turn. I didn’t see the twist until it was already too late to change the circumstances. Absolutely brilliant storytelling. The voice acting is amazing and I will absolutely be listening to this again.
I give this audiobook 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Tomorrow for the Missing Person Saturday feature, I am highlighting the missing person’s case of Julie Ann Gonzalez. Next week for the Fiction Friday feature, I am reviewing the horror novel, Bag of Bones by Stephen King. Until then keep reading on; Nerd out!
